Question about PfaFF Sewing Machines
Pfaff coverlock 3.0 I can't get it to work properly for coverstitch. Brand new, already been back to store they serviced said nothing wrong. Got it home, removed their coverstitch test swatch and put my material under it, no go just jams all the time using this feature - have made a skirt using the overlock function all worked but can't hem it with this coverstitch. Re-treaded 20 times or more, watched the DVD over & over and see nothing wrong with how mine is treaded. It will do a few cms then just jam.....done than 10 times already just today. WHY?

SOURCE: thread bunching
I discovered that when the thread is knotting up on the underside of the material that it is usually the threading on top and has nothing to do with the bobbin.

It's the bobbin thread. Also, it does not have to be Brother brand. Any 60wt thread will work. I get mine at http://www.threadart.com
They have it on large cones, and I use a cone holder to fill my bobbins. I have not had a single problem since. I like this thread because it has a sheen to it. I also have a longarm quilting machine & I use this bobbin thread 95% of the time. Also, be sure to check the bobbin area (remove the plastic & the metal plates) for lint buildup... I have a small, soft artists paint brush that I use to remove the lint build up with. I check after every embroidery run.
And for the thread not coming through...mine does it when I change thickness of threads. There is an adjustment wheel on the front of the machine, I turn that...seems to make the difference...not even sure that is what it's for...but it works for me.

I had the same problem with cleaning and jamming and this might sound silly, but when you're in the middle of trying to fix it remember to look up see that it is threaded up top. I did everything the pp's suggested and when they didn't work I realized the top thread wasn't still threaded around the tension thing anymore. After rethreading it, it worked fine. But I DID reduce the amount of thread on the bobbin at the same time as Drazil suggested.

The UPPER thread is not threaded through the machine correctly.

Testimonial: "That was part of the solution. I also adjusted the bobbin tension, together that solved the problem. thanks for your advice! "

I had same problem. After making sure the thread was loaded properly still same thing happened. Then I reloaded the bobbin and made sure the long metal bar on the metal casing fit securely into the half circle slot at the top of the big metal ring that bobbin goes into. After that, just rotated handwheel a couple of times until thread came through. Problem solved.
