Why Doesn't my sewing machine want to pick up the bobbin thread correctly?

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

You receive the error message E6 when the motor locked up because thread is tangled or the machine is seizing up.

Remove the tangled thread, it it still happens that means your machine is seizing and requires service.

Thread wrapping around take up lever

I think that you should check the manual again because it sounds like you have missed a step in your threading. What you are describing does not seem possible if it threaded right

My thread got wrapped around the take up lever inside the machine. How can I access that to untangle it?

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.

Are pfaff 1475cd sewing feet compatible with pfaff 1151 machine

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.

Hope this helps!

Happy Sewing,

The thread keeps jumping out of the thread takeup lever on my Pfaff. What is causing this? I've replaced the needle and the bobbin shuttle.

if you have the machine threaded correctly, try threading the takeup lever from the opposite side so the thread crosses over itself and see if that helps.

How to thread necchi 537L sewing machine

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.
