Question about PfaFF Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Hello, I have a Pfaff 7570. I believe the tension spring is bad as I have to turn the dial all the way up to nine before the bottom looping stops. The bottom bobbin case tension is set correctly. Can the spring be stretched or the dial reset to read correctly? If not, can you suggest where I could get a new tension spring? Thanks in advance for your reply. Best regards, B

Unlikely you will have problems with the tension springs, make sure you have the thread coming from the bobbin with only the slightest tension, failing that your machine may be slightly out of time

SOURCE: Bottom (bobbin thread) makes loops

I don't have the same brand as yours, but on my machine there is a little screw on the bobbin case that you tighten to increase the bobbin tension. If you've got one, turn it 1/8 to 1/4 turn at a time.

SOURCE: Adjusting tension when stippling

Yes you should lower the feed dogs for free motion sewing. The tension can be set higher as required. A perfectly tuned up machine uses a setting of 5 but don't be afraid to go higher to get rid of the looping on the bottom.
Also, oil your hook every 8hrs with Pfaff hook oil (which is lighter weight than regular sewing machine oil) if you have it, otherwise use white sewing machine oil. Looping on the bottom can be caused by a dry hook.
good luck!

SOURCE: thread or bobbin tension

Thread tension. Beware of adjusting the bobbin screw. Pfaffs maintain their tensions just fine without adjusting the bobbin tension, unless you're using some crazy thick or fine thread. If you must change your bobbin tension, you would be well-advised to buy an extra bobbin case, because re-calibrating your tensions after changing them can be less than fun.

Increase your top tension, and your looping should cease. I normally keep my tension around 4.5. Also make sure you're using a good quality thread, and that there's nothing in the upper tension assemblies. Sometimes a tiny piece of debris can keep the top tension from applying enough tension, so turning the machine off and blowing some canned air in there can help as well.

Good luck,

-R

SOURCE: Top thread stitches correctly but bottom thread loops.

FYI---- Loops on the bottom-- problem is in the threading..
Loops on the top--- problem is with the bobbin.

SOURCE: Tension Problem on Pfaff 2034, bobbin loops

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.

My thread is looping underneath the fabric. I use a pfaff 1472. Would this be the needle?


Top tension is insufficient, so probably your top tension dial is either turned right down, gunked up or the thread isn't into it properly. Start by unthreading top thread, raising pressure foot, turn tension dial to 5 and thread again to just after the dial, then lower the pressure foot and pull the thread, is it very firm to tug? If there is no tension on it, then the dial is faulty.

If there is tension, then try sewing again, maybe it was just threading up issue.

If you can access the metal discs that make up the tension device, then turn down to zero and "floss" between them with the selvage edge of a clean piece of cotton fabric and see if any gunk comes out. Many black and dark threads will shed dye particles and if you have used cheap cotton this will shed too, gunking up the tension. Good practice to clean it out regularly.

check to make sure that around the tension dial there is no lint or dust
the upper tension spring could be bad
a sewing machine repair shop could tell about the tension spring

I cant set the tension on my PFAFF 7570 the thread keeps


First make sure your needle is in correctly. Then make sure you are threading the machine correctly especially make sure you thread the take-up lever. Make sure your tension dial is at a 4 to 5. if this does not work, let me know

My Pfaff sewing machine has started to loop the top thread underneath. Tried fixing the tension on the bobbin thread as they state in the manual, but the problem still persists. Any suggestions?


If the thread is looping underneath, you're top tension may be too loose or the thread may not be in the take-up lever. If it's looping on top, double check that the thread is in the bobbin tension or that the bobbin tension isn't too loose.

Pfaff 7570 Tension Problem


You are threading this with the pressure foot in the down postion. So the tension is not engaging. clean the tension by running a pipe cleaner up and down the tension where the thread goes. it may have a piece of thread or lint in it.

How to stipple with Pfaff 7550


Make sure you have the presser lifter lever in the proper position. When lowering it, push to the rear and it will stop half way down. This engages the upper tension but keeps the foot from lowering down and touching the fabric.
If this doesn't help please post the exact problem, i.e. thread pulling to the bottom etc.
Good luck!

PLEASE HELP!!! Pfaff creative 7570 tension problems


Check your bobbin tension also. Embroidery bobbin thread is finer than sewing thread and you may need to make adjustment on the bobbing case by turning the small screw slightly. The type of stabilizer can affect your embroidery. An excellent reference for machine embroidery is Embroidery Machine Essentials by Jeanine Twigg, available on Amazon.
