if the bobbin case isn't turning properly are you sure you it in right.
Hold the lever on it out, slide the case on the spindle all the way and then release the lever. Also try a different length needle, it may be to long to allow a uniform stitch
The side cover can be removed with a torx size 15 wrench. Looking down on the machine, you will see a small hole opening in the middle of the machine almost to the left edge-see pic (the top lid covers needs to be up to see it) and loosen the screw 3 turns. That side cover will slide off to the left now and you can access your thread. To take the thread out, turn the hand wheel backwards (to the back) while pulling on the thread.
Hi. Some Pfaff machines have something called an "IDT" which looks rather like a small, black walking foot behind the pressure foot, to help feed the fabric evenly. Pfaff machines with this IDT need "IDT" pressure feet. (I can't find a listing of which machines have this and which don't, so you'll have to look at your machines or check your manuals.) If both machines have the IDT, then the feet are compatible. If neither has the IDT, then the feet are also compatible.
From the reel pin take the thread to the left and over the top thread guide above the takeup lever, make sure the takeup lever is up and and make sure the presser foot is up, take the thread straight down and round the right hand side of the tension unit and back up the left hand side to the takeup lever, thread the takeup lever right to left and take the thread down any guides to the needle, if the bobbin case goes in the front thread the needle front to back, if the bobbin case goes in the side thread the needle left to right.
