Question about PfaFF Tiptronic 2030

Pfaff 1475 tension problem.

I continue to have trouble with my Pfaff machine. I had the bobbin tension adjusted by a repairman and it worked beautifully for about a month. Since then the top thread shows through to the bottom. I've tried adjusting the top tension and there is virtually no change in how the top thread looks on the bottom of the fabric once it is set at 4 (it goes through nine). So I ordered a new factory adjusted bobbin. Unfortunately it did not solve my problem. Any ideas? It seems to me that there is something wrong with the needle thread tension mechanism but I don't have a clue as to how to adjust this. Thanks
Carolyn

My pfaff 1475 CD thread is loopy on bottom and breaks on top.


Look very closely at your sample stitching and determine which thread (top or bobbin) is looping and which is breaking. That will narrow down where the problem exists.

A top thread that loops and makes thread "barfs" under the fabric is generally an upper thread tension problem.
Try: Remove the top thread. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Set the upper tension to the midway point (probably will need to tweak this tension depending on your machine).

......... when you did the bobbin drop, did it drop some then stop? Is the bobbin in the correct way (can go in two ways - thread feeds differently into / under the tension 'finger')

Not sure if your model is the creative 1475. The closest I can find at a service website of Pfaff is 1473. Check if this is similar to your model and it shows where the balance wheel goes.

How do i fix the tension on my pfaff tiptronic 2020


It sounds like you need to adjust the bobbin tension. There is a small screw on the bobbin case to tighten/loosen the thread's tension coming out of the case. Refer to the user manual on the procedure to set it.

Pfaff machine -sews with thread loops forming on the underside of the fabric.


This is usualy a thread tension problem. Adjust the upper thread tension first. If tightening the upper thread tension doesn't work, then adjust the bobbin holder (lower thread tension) check with the user manual for your specific machine for the correct procedure.

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.

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,
