I have a Pfaff 4.2 Quilt Expression. I am free motion quilting and the bobbin thread keeps hanging up. Any suggestions?


1. The top loading bobbin cases have small brackets to keep them from turning or moving up or down.
2. Adjust brackets with small screwdriver. Allow enough room for thread to flow through.
3. Rotate hand wheel both directions to make sure the bobbin case doesn't move around. Also, watch the thread to see if it is flowing across the top of the bobbin case.
4. You may need to slow down movement of your "free motion". Also, make sure you are using the right pressure foot.

Hi I have a pfaff industrial zig zag 428, the bobbin has stopped all rotation


bobbin case should be stationary, bobbin itself is rotated as thread unwound, check hook timing. Simply turn hand wheel towards you and watch needle go down, when it reaches lowest point turn it slowly until needle rises 3/16" or so. Hook should be behind needle and slightly above eye.

Needle Jams In Bobbin Case Area pfaff 1540


First, make sure there is no debris and scraps of thread in the bobbin area. I'm sure you did that already. I assume you also tried it with another thread just to be sure. I would suspect that the timing went out of whack. The machines depend on a synchronization between the needle motion and the bobbin action underneath. I once had a Singer that slipped and I had to reset the timing. If it is the timing synch problem then it would happen consistently and not work sometimes and then not work other times. G

How do you adjust timing on pfaff 138 sewing machine


Take the foot off the machine
Remove the needle plate
Remove the feed dogs
rotate by hand until the needle is at the lowest position
continue rotating until the needle rises 2 mm
the hook assembly should be passing exactly by the scarf of the needle
if not loosen the two screws that secure the the hook assembly and rotate the hook assembly by hand until it is exactly at the scarf of the needle and the distance between the hook and the scarf is .1 mm (almost touching the needle)
tightened the two screws, replace the feed dogs and foot and it should sew perfectly

Needle arm stuck


Firstly, do you pull the fabric as it goes through the machine; this is a surefire way to break needles. Tension imbalance shouldn't be breaking a needle; more likely the thread would break if the top tension is too tight. And botton tension shouldn't need adjusting at all.

It may be that your needle is striking the presser foot if you are applying some "pull" to the fabric at the back of the foot.

But sewing very heavy fabrics is a challenge for many domestic machines - upholstery, heavy denim and canvas is tough going for many machines. Some tough mechanical machines will manage it but many won't. You can try using a roller or walking (even feed) foot as this may help with moving the fabric through but often the feed dogs just can't grip and move the heavy fabric enough. If you need to sew heavy fabrics regularly maybe consider finding a 2nd hand industrial straight stitch machine such as the Singer 20U.

In the case of your Bernettte, remove the needle plate (two screws), pressure foot, stub of needle and bobbin and then search the bobbin rotary hook area and see if there is a piece of needle stuck anywhere, you may need to turn the machine upside down and see if it falls out of the race area. I think this machine has a plastic horizontal bobbin case ??? If so, you will probably find that this has dislodged and may have been struck by the needle so remove it and give it a good visual check for damage, if there is a pierce mark, then give this a file down with an emery board to smoooth it. While it is out, see if the flywheel will now rotate the rotary hook fully.

Then reassemble by putting the bobbin case back in lining up the mark on the case with the stopper in the rotary hook, replacing the needle plate, pressure foot and a new needle.

If you can't get it to unlock at all, then it will need to go to a technician for repair.

You are absolutely correct - your machine doesn't come apart much because it is an electronic machine. There really are very few moving parts in modern sewing machines - and the electronics are better left to a technician who's been specifically trained.

It sounds as if your machine is no longer in time (needle rubbing the plate as it goes around if I'm understanding correctly). While not really a "major" repair, unfortunately with computerized/electronic machines, retiming your machine is something better left to an authorized Pfaff technician.

If the needle struck metal as you were stitching/basting, there may also be a rough spot/burr on the hook that your technician will be able to smooth off as well.

Hope this helps get you back up and running soon.

Happy stitching,
