That series machine has had a LOT of issues with the "automatic" upper threading/needle threading mechanism. I believe that is where the issue is coming from. I would take it to a authorized Brother dealer and they should be able to diagnose. Many things can interfear with the top tension on that mech. and a good tech will be able to help.

I bought my machine last yr & just started using it 2 days ago. Now it's acting up? The needle is hitting the bobbin plate. I've notice this is a common thing to happen to other confidence owners.


Sounds like the needle is bent. If it hits the plate just once it will blunt the needle and not sew properly. Failing that, the machine's timing may be off. Was it shifted about a lot in the year it was left in the box?

The thread keeps coming out of the needed!


make sure to have long thread tails of 4 to 6 inches for the top
thread & bobbin,, make sure the thread is pulled behind the
needle before you start to sew.

Thread breaking, not even threaded in needle anymore, thread gets caught on spool sometimes


Upper thread breaks
1.the needle may be bent or damaged--try rolling the needle on a flat surface to see if it's bent or not
Or the needle could be in backwards
Correct needle insertion
Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of sewing machine.
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 or if using a round needle--the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft.
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
2.upper tension may be to tight--try 3 to 5
3.thread may be hanging up in bobbin case--check area for loose threads or lint
???
Lower thread breaks
The most probable cause of lower thread breaking is improperly wound bobbin
1.always start with a empty bobbin
Never wind one color over the other
2.choose thread that is identical in color & type as the one to be used for upper threading
3.wind the bobbin evenly across & in layers
4.don't wind the bobbin so full that it would be tight & hard to insert into bobbin case
5.bent bobbin--replace
6.lint built up in the bobbin case--frequent cleanings will eliminate this problem, the more often you use the sewing machine the more often it needs to be cleaned
7.thread catching on the bobbin spring or latch on bobbin case, check to see that the bobbin is inserted completely & correctly, & that you are using the right kind of bobbin

for the top & bobbin thread keep thread tails of 3 to 6 inches long pulled behind the needle before you start sewing

yes,sometimes the thread will get caught on the spool, you might think about getting a extra holder that sets behind the machine to hold those spool's that the thread get caught on, that's what I did.

Hi. I have a Pfaff Industrial Sewing machine Model nr: 38-6 and the manual got lost in the 2nd world war. I think my dad bought it in 1930. Can I still get a manual for it?


Ahh, this comes about a year after your posting. The Pfaff 38-6 is a true gem. If you have any interest in sewing, don't let it go! I have an embarassingly large number of sewing machines and kept searching for the perfect one to do medium duty sewing. I found a 38-6 on Craigslist for $40 with treadle table and grabbed it. Best thing I've ever done re sewing. It is a commercial tailor's machine made before WW2 and sews the best of any of my domestic machines. It is my 'go to' machine for all but heavy sewing when I go to my industrial machines.

As to your question about a manual, I have a German language one that is only helpful for the photos and tables. I will make a pdf for you if that would help. It uses the standard domestic 130 needles which are also the Singer 15x1 needles. Please let me know what I can do to help you preserve and use this great machine...Dave

Pfaff 7530/ electronic problem?


Where has it been for ten years? This could have a big affect on an electronic sewing machine.

Take the machine in to a sewing machine shop for service.

Thread get's tangled and attached to plate while embroidering


Just a thought. Is it possible that your thread is wrapping around your spool post or snagging on your thread spool?

HI, I HAD THIS PROBLEM ONCE AND HAD THE WRONG NEEDLE, ALSO IS THE NEEDLE EVEN SLIGHTLY BENT? DOES THE MACHINE HAVE THE CORRECT BOBBIN, MAYBE THE OTHER PERSON BOUGHT NEW BOBBINS AND THEY WERE THE WRONG ONES...I HAVE DONE THAT ALSO. I USUALLY USE COMMERCIAL MACHINES, BUT I HAVE FOUND THAT THE NEEDLE HAS TO BE REALLY STRAIGHT, AND NO DINGS IN THE PLATE. AS YOU KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE, IT DOES NOT TAKE MUCH FOR A MACHINE NOT TO WORK. I WOULD TRY NEW BOBBINS AND A NEW NEEDLE FIRST AND THEN LOOK AT THE TIMING. IT MAYBE JUST A SIMPLE THREADING PROBLEM ALSO. I SEW ALOT AND OVER THE YEARS HAVE THE MOST OBVIOUS PROBLEMS JUST PASS BY ME. HOPE THAT YOU CAN FIND OUT WHAT IS GOING ON AND ALSO, IS THE BOBBIN IN BACKWARDS, I HAVE DONE THAT TOO...
