The up and down buttons are not working properly. When pressing the needle down button, the needle does go down and then comes right back up. pressing the needle up button makes the needle shoot up and down 2 times very fast. HELP

Will the Fab u motion with stitch regulator work with a Pfaff 2046?

You should probably verify with either the vendor selling the stitch regulator unit or your Pfaff dealer. It would be best to get a guarantee before purchasing.

Pfaff grand quilter

try a new needle
rethread the machine top and bobbin
clean under the needle plate and in the bobbin area for lint
and if these suggestion don't help, then it would be a good idea to have the machine checked.

I have the Mega Quilter and Quilters Cruise Control. My stitches are very inconsistent.

I agree to have the regulator check, & even having the whole machine checked wouldn't hurt.

I have a Pfaff grand Quilter and my top thread is not catching the bobbin thread. When it does the stitches skips. Can anyone help!?


If you have changed the needle and rethreaded the machine, then take apart your bobbin and make certain there are no small pieces of thread or lint in it. Check your tension. Do you have an automatic thread cutter? I had the same problem and it was because my automatic thread cutter was cutting the thread too short. Some how the cutter had gotten bent...I could not tell it, but it was.I put the blade of a flat head screw driver under the cutter and GENTLY bent it back down. Fixed the problem. Works perfectly.

I have a pfaff grand quilter and have used it to do six quilts and has worked great but the last quilt i did the top thread kept breaking every few inches i have tried everything but in the end took it in...

I had a similar problem with the long stitches. One of the encoders for the stitch regulator was not turning all the time when I moved the machine. My dealer gave me a new one and now the machine works fine. It could also be your cable from the encoders to the machine. If the wires (very fragile) get broken, either the machine won't sew when you go side to side or back and forth, or it will make the intermittently long stitches you mentioned.

It's important to have the foot raised when you thread the machine. If you have it down, the thread won't get caught between the tension disks, and it will be very hard to get consistent stitches.
