SOURCE: Threading the Bobbin
Place the bobbin in the bobbin case making sure the thread feeds clockwise. Draw the thread through the slot on the case. Continue to draw under the tension spring and through the opening pulling out about 6" of thread. Hold the latch open, position the bobbin case into the suttle and release the latch. THe case should lock into place when the latch is relaeased.
With the top thread, hold out about 5" to the left. While holding on tot he top thread, turn the hand wheel toward you and you should see a loop at the feed dogs. grab the two thread and bring them behind the presser foot.

Hi! Congratulations! I just read a great review of your machine at http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/sm/readsmreview.pl. One of the things the reviewer noted is that the 139 wasn't designed by Pfaff. It was designed by another sewing machine company (the GZ in your serial number) that Pfaff had bought. The machine dates to the 1950s.
Statewide sewing (http://www.statewidesewing.com/#Accessories) has a great selection of belts.
Hope this helps!

You might have to adjust the tension. My machine was doing something similar because I accidentally changed the tension instead of the stitch length. The manuel should tell you how to adjust it.
