Make sure the feed dogs are dropped (or feed dog cover is on - I can't remember which way this machine works). The stitch length on the machine has no function so ignore it. (I set it to zero so the machine doesn't have to work as hard). Hopefully this is all that's wrong. If not, use a shorter setting for the stitch length on the regulator, oil the hook and move slowly and smoothly.

this is a known issue with the pfaff.....i have just bought the machine and it has thread uptake issues...thread tension issues and it comes unthreaded by itself often...leaving globs of thread on the bottom stuck in the feed dogs and under the throat plate.....then the stitches are not properly balanced because the tension gets too loose on the bobbin thread....very disappointed to find out it is a known issue with all the viking husqvarna made machines...which are pfaff, janome and viking.....sux.

Its the frame, its the open metal frame. I have two machines and have the same problem. Heavier thread, changed needles, raised and lowered. Its the frame you need to frame in like a box and it will work or turn it upside down and ask you husband to screw a large piece of plywood to the bottom to make it square and heavier. The frame will continue to float around, we even screwed it to the floor. For three years I had to go without the quilting. Machine works off stand not on.

I posted question about top thread breaking when quilting (using walking foot). Finally solved my problem, my solution may help others. Decrease the presser foot tension to nearly 0. Had tried different threads, tension settings, needles. Nothing worked until I adjusted the presser foot tension. Quilting went like a dream, even through seams ect, also worked for attaching binding.
