Question about Kenmore 11206 / 11306 / 11506 / 11606
When I take a few stitches, my Pfaff 1475 stalls with bunches of thread under the fabric and I have a hard time pulling the fabric up enough to cut underneath and free fabric. Then I have to cut threads and pull out all of the bits and pieces. I have tried re-threading the machine and bobbin several times, but it didn't help.
With all the stuff you say I think that you should try what I do clean it with canned air. Then change the needle you may have a burred or bent needle. and when you clean the machine make sure to use a qtip with oil on it and swab the bobbin holder it may have broken needle piece stuck in it. if after that is done it still not working then adjust the tension taking care to note the positions first.make sure you change only one at a time and put it aback if it doesn't fix the problem and try another position. you may need to try the specialneedle for the fabric (stretchy or jean type)

Try making sure that the thread is all the way in the tension disk then test it out. I had a similar experience with an old machine.

Needle in correct? Be sure your bobbin is not in upside down and turning the wrong way. Possibly the hook that the bobbicase fits in/on has been hit by a needle and caused a burr that is catching the thread as it comes around. The burr would have to be polished off or hook replaced. The machine could be slightly out of time also.
