Question about PfaFF Creative 7570
While quilting, all of a sudden my thread just breaks. For no apparent reason. I have a new needle, new thread, and I cleaned the bobbin area before starting. It work's great for a while and then starts breaking. The thread looks like it has been pulled apart.
This was happening to me when I put new needle and I just checked tension on bobbin thread and for some reason it was to tight, adjusted to make looser as shown in manual and the tread stopped breaking.

SOURCE: Bobbin thread breaks
Make sure your bobbin thread is turning clockwise as it sits in the bobbin case. There is a screw on the outside of the bobbin case you can turn with your thumb slightly to adjust tension. If you dangle the case from the thread and give it a light ****, it should move down slightly when doing so-an indicator of good bobbin tension.

Is the needle all the way up in the holder? Have you checked the timing with the bobbin and the needle. Look in your manual for needle timing

If the machine is now threaded, lift the presser foot.
Now, pull about 10" of thread through the needle.
The next time you thread the machine, lift the presser foot first.
When the presser foot is up, the tension control opens and allows the thread to "seat" into the control, then when the foot is down the control closes to the indicated setting.
When threading the machine with the foot is down, thread does not enter the tension control and when you start to sew, there is no tension on the thread.
No tension = loosey, goosey, loopy stitches underneath.
Because the lack of tension on the top thread, the bobbin thread cannot lock a proper stitch.

SOURCE: thread breaks
If the thread is feeding from the spool without hanging up, the problem is within the threading system.
If this machine auto-threads, try to manual threading.
Call your dealer and tell them what is happening and you need their assistance. The machine may have to be serviced. Take a sample of the problem with you.
Too many bells and whistles can sometimes be, too many bells and whistles!

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.
