SOURCE: needle cannot be secured in PFAFF 1222 sowing

Well if you stripped it then there is no magic fix for it except to replace it. It's pretty hard finding the correct tap fixing the stripped threads.

SOURCE: top thread breaking

I would try loosening the tension a little. Is it real cheap thread? Sometimes that will give you a problem. I would look into the owners manual for more suggestions.

SOURCE: Hello! My reliable 1222 has hit a snag. When try to sew, the top thread is not being picked up by the bobbin thread. How can I fix it? Pavla

try changing the needle
clean under the needle plate & in bobbin area for loose threads & lint
try rethreading the machine top & bobbin, make sure to get every thread guide
make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly in the bobbin case

SOURCE: The thread from the spool breaks immediately. Does it need a particular kind?

Upper thread breaks
needle may be in backwards
Raise the needle bar to the highest point then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle, place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side to the back of the machine
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
upper tension may be to tight
the needle may be bent or damaged
thread may be hanging up in bobbin case--check area for loose threads or lint

The thread is breaking the whole time, what could possibly be the problem?


Could be several things, ie mis-threading, burr or snag is catching the thread, old/bargain bin thread, needle is not compatible with thread and fabric, tension is incorrect...

The first thing to try (and also the least expensive), install a brand new needle.

Remove the upper thread. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct.

All of a sudden , as soon as i finish sewing a piece of fabric the thread will break. i can continue to sew as the main machine is still threaded.


There may be a bit of thread stuck in the bobbin or somewhere under the machine. Turn the machine sideways and look with a flashlight. Then turn the wheel a couple times and look again...Good Luck...xo

The top thread keeps shredding/ripping while trying to embroider. Using a babylock ellure.


as you thread the machine check for burrs, also on the needle plate

Thread the needles


cheap thread will break easily. Make sure you buy good quality thread. If you want to test to see if this is what your problem is, buy four small spools of Coats and Clark thread, I even use it for embroidering. It doesn't break easily. If it doesn't break, it is your thread. If it breaks, your tension is too tight on your machine.

I am having a problem with thread breaking. as it's going threw the needle it starts to back up father up on the thread and then it just keeps getting thinner and thinner until it breaks. It is hard...


try a different spool of thread & see if that solves the problem ,, I've gotten thread that would easily break & just used it for sewing quilt squares,,,if another spool does not help try a new needle

Skipping stitches and sometime the thread breaks.


Sounds like a tension problem maybe. Too tight tension will bend, and break the needle, especially if sewing fast in free machine embroidery, in this mode, the tensions have to be looser anyway. I can't explain why the wheel flagged and stopped, but experiment with tensions first.

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.
