Question about PfaFF Tiptronic 2030
A pfaff 1222. The bobbin holder has thread stuck in it and we cannot get it out. How do we take apart the pieces of the holder to get the thread out.
With power off, take the needle out and the presser foot. Remove the two flathead screws that secure the needle plate from the machine and remove the plate. You'll have a top view of the bobbin housing and see the thread that's stuck to it.

Rule of thumb.. Loops on the bottom, problem on the top. Loops on the top, problems on the bottom.
Set your upper tension at 4, and rethread the machine from the top. Just before you thread the needle, but the presser foot down. If the thread pulls right thru easily, then the thread is not thru the tension wheel right. Because, if you can't pull the thread thru with the presser foot down, you have it threaded right.

Hi - it is possible that your needle is bent. Insert a new needle and check again - if you have the same problem, your timing is probably off. You could try buying a new bobbin case to see if that solves the problem. If you have had your machine tuned up within the last year or two, I would recommend a tune-up. If you know of a reputable sewing machine repair shop or dealer, the tune up should include correcting the timing and will extend the life of your machine.

SOURCE: Bobbin winder won't spin
The two most common problems are that you either need a new bobbin tire, or just need to adjust the position of the winder a little closer to the hand wheel. Remove the top cover and you will see the winder assembly. Loosen the two screws that hold the assembly nudge it closer to the hand wheel side. If you move it too far the winder will constantly spin. Also, examine the rubber tire, it may have a flat spot on it in which case it needs to be replaced. If it is worn out you may not be able to tell just by looking at it.
These winders can be tricky to adjust but why not try?

The timing has been knocked off when it jammed. The only way to
correct this is to take it to a shop and have it retimed. This is common on these machines.

SOURCE: Bobbin thread bunching up.
You might have to adjust the tension. My machine was doing something similar because I accidentally changed the tension instead of the stitch length. The manuel should tell you how to adjust it.
