Just guessing. You might try :
Installing a brand new needle
tightening the top tension a bit

If it continues to be a problem, most likely the machine is out of time and requires adjustment. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

I have a Pfaff 4.2 Quilt Expression. I am free motion quilting and the bobbin thread keeps hanging up. Any suggestions?


1. The top loading bobbin cases have small brackets to keep them from turning or moving up or down.
2. Adjust brackets with small screwdriver. Allow enough room for thread to flow through.
3. Rotate hand wheel both directions to make sure the bobbin case doesn't move around. Also, watch the thread to see if it is flowing across the top of the bobbin case.
4. You may need to slow down movement of your "free motion". Also, make sure you are using the right pressure foot.

Help trouble-shoot jammed machine


Try these suggestions

1. Change the needle--use a needle that's for the fabric being sewed

2. Rethread the machine--top --make sure to use every thread guide

3. try a different bobbin--make sure bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case, & make sure the bobbin is turned the correct way in the bobbin case

4. make sure the thread has not come off the thread take up lever

5. Clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or threads

6. Also could be a timing problem, and the machine would need to be checked.

Tension on my Pfaff Grandquilter


check carefully that the top thread is actually gong between the tension plates and not behind them and jamming on the retainer bolt
before threading the needle place the thread up to the point of threading the needle and pull on the thread , proper tension is when there is a slight resistance to pulling the thread
If it takes excessive force to pull the thread then it is caught around something so follow the thread all the way back to the spool to see where the problem is

Bernina Virtuoso 150 - all of a sudden my machine is dropping stitches and the bobbin thread is bunching up. It also most feels like my machine is trying to do a gather stitch. I changed the needle and...


Check that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder. The bobbin tension adjustment is the small screw in the plate on the bobbin case that the thread passes under as it comes off the bobbin and goes out.

The thread bunches up under the material when i sew. thread then clogs up under the plate.


first start with the needle & see if it's bent-roll the needle on a flat surface & see if it roll correctly
when a needle is blunt it makes a popping sound when it goes thru the fabric
check the bobbin to see if it's warped-I have had some that were
check to see if there is lint or loose thread in the bobbin case area
rethread the machine to make sure the upper thread is not catching on anything
sometimes the thread can come off the thread take up lever
& sometimes it can get caught on the spool pin & also on the notch that's on the thread spool it's self---I've had this happen before
if you sew alot-good maintenance practice is to clean the bobbin case area at least once a week-if you don't sew alot-once a month & also under the needle plate
when cleaning under the needle plate-make sure you do not damage the top of the screws when you remove them to clean under the needle plate & because if the top of screws get damaged they can pull the fabric when the fabric goes over them
check also to make sure your top tension is correct

Pfaff 1222 Bobbin holder stuck with thread


With power off, take the needle out and the presser foot. Remove the two flathead screws that secure the needle plate from the machine and remove the plate. You'll have a top view of the bobbin housing and see the thread that's stuck to it.

Thread bunches under the material


There ARE still parts for your 7570 - amazing how rumors can get around!

Could be any number of things - from something as simple as a thread caught somewhere in the upper/lower tensions to the tension assembly to timing to any number of other things? You may have already tried some of these - hope this helps:

  1. Try "flossing" your upper tension - this is nothing more than running a heavyweight thread (such as upholstery or 12 weight thread) through the threading paths. Grasp the thread at the beginning of the threading path and the end coming through the needle and "FLOSS" (back and forth - just like you do your teeth). This will usually pull through anything that is gently stuck.
  2. Pretty much the same thing for the bobbin thread - if you're comfortable doing so, loosen the tension screw on the side of the bobbin case to make sure there aren't any little bits of thread fuzz stuck under the tension plate on the side of the bobbin case.
  3. Also remove the needle plate to allow you to better see the upper part of the bobbin system - if there are any bits of thread, etc. stuck in there, you may be able to see them and pull out with tweezers (turn machine off before you do this so the tweezers don't accidentally come into contact with anything).

If this doesn't work, you'll need to have a sewing machine tech look at it (I would recommend a Pfaff-trained tech as they're going to be the most familiar with your machine). The 2140/2144/2170 use most of the same parts - even the new CV still uses some of the same parts.

Good Luck,
Kim

Tangled bobbin thread


Okay. I had this problem too. try taking the bobbin casing out. I had a bit of thread lintg caught in a remote area of the under-plate area. Blow it out with canned air and oil your machine. That should help. It fixed mine.
