SOURCE: My Pfaff 4.0 breaks needles

a sewing machine I work on last week, I put a new needle in the needle clamp & thought I had it correctly inserted,, but it wouldn't work,, so I went back & checked the needle again & found I had to unscrew the needle clamp screw even more than normal to insert the needle then it work perfectly.

some needles & thread don't work togeather--here's a tip
Cut 6-8 inch piece of thread of the spool you are going to use for your project
Take the needle you are going to use for the project
& insert the thread thru the eye of the needle
& lift one end of the thread to a 45 degree angle
& if the needle is the right size for the thread it will slide down the thread
But if the needle hangs on the thread you need one size larger needle for the thread

also clean under the needle plate where the feed dogs are for lint
& also in the bobbin area for lint & loose threads

SOURCE: my 2134 is shreading the thread at the last thread

try changing the thread to a different type on a sample piece of fabric
if that doesn't help check the thread guide you mentioned & see if has any burrs on it, burrs can damage thread

SOURCE: pfaff quilt expression 4 It shreds

Are you using the right needles, size and type? Before, you wreck your material, take it in and have it serviced. I know everyone hates to pay for service, but if you like your machine it will be worth it to have it running at its peak. Just like a car, we spend tons on them but expect a sewing machine to never need anything. Remember, it is worth it.

SOURCE: Just bought a brand new Pfaff Quilt Expression 4.0

this is a known issue with the pfaff.....i have just bought the machine and it has thread uptake issues...thread tension issues and it comes unthreaded by itself often...leaving globs of thread on the bottom stuck in the feed dogs and under the throat plate.....then the stitches are not properly balanced because the tension gets too loose on the bobbin thread....very disappointed to find out it is a known issue with all the viking husqvarna made machines...which are pfaff, janome and viking.....sux.

SOURCE: Pfaff quilt expressions 4.0 shows

A lot of these Ex 4.0 have defective cutter motors. The arm that the cutter is attached to passes by a sensor that tells the machine when the cutter is at the rest position. And what is happening is that the arm is no longer in place to tell the sensor where it is, and it stops short of the rest position. This part is covered by PFAFF for a 5 year period. You'll just have to have a PFAFF dealer install it and pay a labor charge.

If you have installed a brand new needle and it is still hitting, then the machine needs an adjustment. Take it for service.

What number is satin stitch on Piaf quilt expressions 4.0


A satin stitch is simply a zig-zag stitch that is shortened enough so the threads lay next to each other without laying over another but also without any space (fabric) showing between. Keep in mind that the thread weight will cause the satin stitch to differ.

I have a Pfaff 4.2 Quilt Expression. I am free motion quilting and the bobbin thread keeps hanging up. Any suggestions?


1. The top loading bobbin cases have small brackets to keep them from turning or moving up or down.
2. Adjust brackets with small screwdriver. Allow enough room for thread to flow through.
3. Rotate hand wheel both directions to make sure the bobbin case doesn't move around. Also, watch the thread to see if it is flowing across the top of the bobbin case.
4. You may need to slow down movement of your "free motion". Also, make sure you are using the right pressure foot.

2. The needle thread tension is to tight

3. The needle is bent or blunt

4. The needle is incorrectly inserted

5. The needle thread & the bobbin thread are not set under the presser foot when starting to sew

6. the threads were not drawn to the rear after sewing

7. The thread is either to heavy or to fine for the needle

8. Try a different spool or cone of thread
