SOURCE: pfaff varimatic 6091 sew a rag quilt with jean and

Hi! The bobbin tension rarely needs to be adjusted. First, make sure you're using the appropriate size needle and thread for your fabric (I'd probably use either a 'denim' needle or a universal size 14) and also that the upper thread and bobbin are threaded absolutely correctly. These can throw off the tension! Also, take the time to clean out the bobbin area. That can throw your stitch off also.

If the stitch on the bottom is loose, so that you see the top threads, then the top tension is too loose. If the top stitch is too loose and you see the bobbin threads on top, then the top tension is too tight.

It helps to thread the machine with different color thread on top and in the bobbin, and then stitch an inch or so on the same type of fabric as you're using in your quilt. Check the stitch. If you need to adjust the top tension, make sure the pressure foot is down! Adjust a little, stitch a few inches, and check again. Repeat until you don't see any (or very little) bobbin thread on the top or top thread on the bottom.

If you go through all these steps, and the bobbin thread is still loose (and you've tightened up the top tension), then there is a tiny little screw on the side of the bobbin case that you can use to adjust the bobbin tension. Turn the screw just a little bit (less than a quarter turn), stitch, check, etc. Once the bobbin tension is set, you shouldn't ever have to change it.

Let me know if this helps, ok?

Happy sewing!

SOURCE: How do I open the

On the top of the head there is a rectangular opening (about 1/4 inch x 1/2 inch). If you look in there with a flash light, you will see a screw with a star head. If you loosen this screw (don't take it out just loosen it) the head will come right off. The slot screw driver that came with my machine actually fits right in there and works great.

Hi, I have a Pfaff Varimatic 6091. I sewed some 'too thick' fabric, and it has 'broken' my top tension unit. i.e. I can no longer set it at all, and when sewing the thread is all loopy.


If the upper tension unit is in fact broken, you will need to take it for service or find a replacement part.

This may be a shot--remove the upper thread, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot, rethread from the beginning. Re-try your machine.

Change bulb on 6085 PFAFF


Looks like you bulb is a bayonet style. Push up and rotate the old bulb to remove. Install the new bulb the same way--push up & rotate to lock in place.

Note: there is also a bulb remover tool

Pfaff varimatic 6091 What type of walking foot can i purchase for this model and are they very expensive ?


You could probably get away with a generic walking foot. They are available in the fabric store for a little under $20. Once you use one, you will wonder how you got by without it before!! I've attached a sample of a product that would work for you. Just be sure to NOT get the "slant" walking foot. That is for the Singer machine, and they have a different setup. Enjoy!!

Model 6091. I can't get the presser foot to go completely down and rest on the fabric. Can you help?


This is a comon problem with the pfaff 7570. The spring that applys the presser to the foot is all gumed up and needs to be removed cleaned and lubricated. I dont know if you want to try this yourself. You will need to remove the top and side covers and upper tension unit. Can be tricky. A pfaff repair shop should charge around $30. I will go over the steps if you want, let me know. But like i said i can be tricky.

Have a model 6091 Pfaff. The sewing foot will not lower complete


I had this same problem. On the bottom of the head there is a slide switch. Lay your machine on its back and you can easily see it. Slide it back and your problem should be solved.
