Question about PfaFF Tiptronic 2040
Make sure you have your spool of thread pushed all the way back on the spool pin with the proper size thread cap. Make sure your foot is in the up position, as this opens the tension discs. There is a small metal circle on top. Pull the thread behind it and under it and directly down. Come back up the other side and around the take-up lever. If you cannot see the take-up lever, move your handwheel until it is all the way up. After you have threaded it around the take-up lever, it comes back down this same side. On either side of your needle bar are two small metal clips. It doesn't matter which side you put the thread into. To put it into the clip, hold the thread taunt and pull it from the outside in against the clip. Now put your foot in the down position. When you pull the thread, it should be tight. Push your needle threader all of the way down. It has a tiny (extremely tiny) hook that will come through the eye of the needle. Wrap the thread around the metal bar/hook on it and gently bring it in front of the needle but under the metal guides that are in front of the needle eye. This next part takes some coordination, gently realease the thread as you simultaneously release the threader. It should pull a loop of thread through the back of the needle.
Also, when you wind a bobbin, you must thread it through the top of the metal disc on top and not underneath it. This provides the correct amount of tension for bobbin winding.
If you are not sure if you have threaded correctly, with the foot in the up position, pull on your thread. It will pull freely off the bobbin. With the foot down you should have a lot of resistance. Good luck to you!
