SOURCE: Bobbin thread bunching up.

You might have to adjust the tension. My machine was doing something similar because I accidentally changed the tension instead of the stitch length. The manuel should tell you how to adjust it.

I need a video on how to thread a pfaff hobbylock 4842 serger


Pfaff has a video on threading the Hobbylock 4842 here: http://www.pfaff.com/mediafiles/threading_guide/index_en.html . You need Adobe Flash Player available on your browser. Enter the tutorial, the link is below the Quick Help paragraph. Then choose the correct machine (from the links across the top). Then use the drop-down menu to choose the stitch that you will be sewing for the appropriate threading video. Then click on the appropriate thread (below the video window) to see how to thread that section of the serger. (For two-thread stitches, you will see two options are greyed out.)

I hope this helps.

The top thread will not pickup bobbin therad it is a pfaff 5.0 machine


The bobin may not be in correctly. When looking at the bobin, with the thread threaded through the bobbin case, make sure that it spins counter clockwise. Also the problem could be caused by the machine not threaded correctly. But it is more likely the bobbin case and bobbin

This is on a 5.0 pfaff sewing it will build a bird nest below the plate


Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Verify the thread path is correct.
Set the top tension to the midway point (may need to tweak this for your particular machine).

Remove the bobbin thread from the machine. Reinstall the bobbin in the bobbin case confirming the bobbin is turning the correct direction and the bobbin case is correctly threaded.

Pull the bobbin thread up to the top of the fabric and gently hold both thread tails in your left hand when slowly taking the first couple of stitches.

My thread keeps breaking every time I start sewing on my pfaff 4.0 sewing machine. O have changed the thread two times. re threaded the needle six times and ensured the needle was in the correct location....


The top thread breaks

1. the needle thread is not threaded properly

2. The needle thread tension is to tight

3. The needle is bent or blunt

4. The needle is incorrectly inserted

5. The needle thread & the bobbin thread are not set under the presser foot when starting to sew

6. the threads were not drawn to the rear after sewing

7. The thread is either to heavy or to fine for the needle

8. Try a different spool or cone of thread

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
