Pfaff quilting machine bobbin stuck


Is there is a wad of thread that is holding the bobbin captive? If so, you'll need to use small scissors and tweezers to snip away and pull out the threads. Patience!

If the bobbin is actually stuck in the bobbin case, it could be because it is the incorrect bobbin for the machine or the bobbin was over-filled with thread. You may just need to use force to remove the bobbin. It may damage the bobbin and, possibly, the bobbin case. They are both replaceable. Or you can pick up an additional bobbin case and bobbin and try the new ones in your machine.

The needle has got stuck and does not come out when hand wheel knob is turned counter clockwise


You probably have a Bird's Nest, as they call it, under the needle plate.
  • You need to release the needle from the machine
  • Pull your work up and about so you can access the screws
  • Remove the needle plate
  • Carefully cut the tangle of threads around the needle with a small scissors or scalpel
Make certain you have turned the machine off first!

I had this issue with all sorts of sewing machines when I was a Workshop Technician at High School. Students were often in tears when they were sewing something special for an exam!

While threading my bobbin, the thread slipped under the bobbin seat and got stuck. I can't dislodge it, and my bobbin won't thread. How can I fix this?


can't figure out what you mean, what bobbin seat, do you mean on the bobbin case? maybe on the post where the bobbin case goes? I guess you just have to work on getting the thread off and start over.

The needle is stuck in the Shark 612C model sewing machine, any solutions?


Try http://www.fixsewingmachine. com I also suggest that you clean bobbin case. Now, when needle is "stuck", this requires patience and care in "jiggling" the hand wheel to and fro until needle point begins to clear the jammed area. Carefully snip one thread that moves up under needle and jiggle hand wheel by carefully turning hand wheel toward you to see if you can move the take-up lever all the way up to the UP position. Look at bobbin case area and remove bobbin. Cut bobbin thread and remove bobbin case. Sweep gently with brush underneath case and carefully, gently sweep over the feed dogs, poking very ends of brush bristles into "teeth" area to remove lint, fuzz ball/s, and any loose thread/s. Raise presser foot, remove (possibly bent) needle. Insert new needle of appropriate size for fabric weight. Make sure needle pushed all the way up into needle bar groove, at side to back. Keep presser foot RAISED while rethreading. This allows thread to locate tension discs, and HOLD THREAD TAUT. Replace bobbin, making sure thread is EVENLY distributed on it. Imablanced bobbins cause jams, and bobbins with burrs and scratches can real havoc as well as the hook part of the shuttle where the bobbin fits. Smooth such areas with emery cloth carefully, ever so gently. Hope my suggestions are a solution for you. Jimmy

My ce4000 started jamming up thread under the foot and then it pulls the bobbin case and gets stuck so that it doesn't sew at all


If the thread is getting jammed under the FABRIC then it means the TOP thread is threaded wrong. Just the opposite of what we think it should be. If the thread is looping on the TOP of your fabric it's the BOBBIN thread that's not threaded right. If it's a front loading bobbin, the thread should go over the top of the bobbin to the right before placing it in the bobbin case. Hope this helps!

Help, my mom is out of town.. I sew two or three stitches and the machine stops. It sounds like it is stuck. I have taken out the bobbin and it doesn't look like anything is stuck?


Get out the manual and start with maintenance so you can be sure the bobbin area is clean.

Now start at the beginning of the manual.

Read and apply as you wind the bobbin and place it into the bobbin case.

Thread the machine - again - read and apply.

Pictures and graphics are very helpful but don't always highlight some of the important steps.

CAN"T FIND THE MANUAL -

Remove the bobbin-case and clean away any thread the may have tangled there.


Make sure the thread is tight and even on the bobbin,

If this is a vertial bobbin/metal bobbin case, the thread winds from the bobbin clockwise and then through the opening on the side of the bobbin case and under the guide just above the opening.

Lift the needle to it's highest position and then lift the lever on the bobbin-case and hold it open as you insert the bobbin-case into the shuttle.

If this is a drop-in, horizontal bobbin, the graphic on the plastic lid covering the bobbin will indicate which way the thread feeds from the bobbin and through the guides.

Replace the needle, with the flat side of the shank facing the back of the machine.

Lift the presser foot and re-thread the machine. IMPORTANT - always have the presser foot up when threading.

Hold onto the thread end, lower and raise the needle to pull up the bobbin thread, Take both thread ends under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

Place a double layer of fabric under the presser foot. Hold onto the thread ends and lower the needle into the fabric for the first stitch.

Press on the power pedal.
