Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

On the Performance 2065 sewing machine by Pfaff, my thread keeps bunching up underneath. I have tried changing out the needle and rewinding the bobbing. The problem started mid-stitch which was odd, maybe I bumped a dial or switch. Can you help me?

Sewing machines usually all operate the same. You could be using the wrong needle on the fabric, the bobbin could still be loose or unevenly wound. If you're sewing stretch knits make sure you use a needle for that fabric. If use you machine regularly you may just need to have it serviced, also make sure you aren't guiding your fabric too tightly. Check to make sure your tension is not set to loose. That's about all I can think of right now. Good Sewing

My Pfaff grand quilter 1200 keeps bunching up the top thread on the bottom side of my quilts. I've replace the needle and thread. It won't pick up the bobbin thread. Could this be a timing problem?


Remove the thread from the machine. (Always raise the presser foot and pull the thread up, NEVER down!).
Install a brand new needle.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading.
Rethread from the beginning and verify the thread pathway is correct.
Set the upper tension to midway between High & Low numbers--you may need to tweak this for your particular machine, but this is a standard starting point.
Confirm the bobbin is loaded and threaded correctly in the bobbin case.
Begin sewing slowly. It helps if you begin sewing with the needle in the uppermost position.
Test on medium weight woven cotton.

If it is still not picking up the bobbin thread, then it most likely is a timing problem. You can search the internet for web sites and videos regarding sewing machine timing or take it for service.

Hi When I start sewing in my pfaff sewing machine the thread keeps breaking off and finally the needle will break...I tried changing the tension also but not helping.please help.


Consult your owner's manual. First thing to do is verify that it is threaded correctly. This is probably the #1 cause for breaking thread. #2 is most likely the tension being too tight. #3 sometimes is the incorrect needle or installed incorrectly.

Keep getting check upper thread message


You have left threads in the thread path that you can't see or get to without a technical knowledge of the necessary "cleaning process"
Go and see your machine repair man who can show you how to get to the problems areas without messing up the mechanicals even more.

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

I have a pfaff 2040 tiptronic and the bobbin thread keeps bunching up and stopping the machine


Hello,
Here are a couple of solutions to try.

* Re-thread your machine, it may be threaded incorrectly.

* Raise your feed dogs if your machine has this feature.

Note: When you start to sew a seam, hold the upper and bobbin thread tails back and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting caught in your machine.

Hope this helps.

Thread is bunching underneath fabric


Needle in correct? Be sure your bobbin is not in upside down and turning the wrong way. Possibly the hook that the bobbicase fits in/on has been hit by a needle and caused a burr that is catching the thread as it comes around. The burr would have to be polished off or hook replaced. The machine could be slightly out of time also.

Thread bunching underneath fabric as I sew.


You may need to take off the housing that covers the whole dog mechanism. You will need a screwdriver to do this. Blow out the area around the tension gears and dogs, check for loose or disconnedted parts, and re-oil the gears. Fleece fuzz usually collects where you can't see it. This was the problem with my machine that had the same symptom.
