Did the machine get dropped, or otherwise roughly handled? Or have a rough, bumpy ride back home, etc? That could explain why it's not working correctly.

SOURCE: Needle & Bobbin out of sync

This description sounds like the machine is out of time. The needle should match up with a cut out section in the bottom of the bobbin area. If it is hitting, the timing has slipped, probably from sewing on a fabric that was too heavy for the machine.

This is a very common problem with Pfaff machines. The presser system needs oil in the right places. If you are mechanically inclined I can give you step by step instructions how to repair it. An air compressor is very helpful.

SOURCE: Top thread gets caught on crescent piece holding in bobbin case

If you have the manual take a better look at how to put the bobbin in the case,

sounds like you are putting it in wrong,

make sure you put the bobbin in with the thread com-ming off the bobbin in the right direction (left or right) if not put in the right way you will get what you are saying

ALSO: bring up the bobbin thread your self by turning the hand wheal and bring the thread a few inches to the back of the needle and hold when starting to sew the first 2-5 stitches.

when you do not hold the thread the machine will pull the thread in the bobbin area and cause problems.

you will get use to holding and it will get easier.

hope this helps

SOURCE: bobbin thread gets bunched up and loud clicking sound

The problem is never the bobbin when you have this problem. It's the top thread. Take the thread off the top of the machine and rethread the top. Make sure the small tension dial is on 4 or 5 (the larger dial on the front left is for the pressure on the foot, not the thread tension.) After you thread the machine, put the pressure foot down but NOT on the thread. Then pull gently toward the back of the machine. When you do, the needle should bend slightly backwards before the thread comes through the machine. If it pulls with no resistance you could simply have "fluff" or remants of thread between your tension discs. If you do, put the dial on zero and using an old needle, clean between the discs and try threading the machine again with the "pull test" I described earlier.
No tension on the top of the machine, lets the bobbin tension win and it pulls all the thread to the bottom of the fabric.

My creative 1473 pfaff will only ball up the thread on the back of the fabric. I have triple checked the threading and am sure the bobbin went in correctly.


I would. rethread the machine. Make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly but clean the bobbin area and look closely for any threads in the bobbin are before you insert it. Make sure the tension is set correctly and there are not stray threads caught in the tension anywhere along the way.

Pfaff 1472


make sure that the needle was put in the needle holder correctly and tightened into the needle holder correctly..
if the needle was in the needle holder correctly and it's still hitting the bobbin carrage then the machine needs to be checked to see if the sewing machine needs a adjustment

Thread caught behind the bobbin case holder


Take off the presser foot
take off the needle plate
take off the bobbin plate
take out the needle,
clip bobbin free,
Examine the bobbin carrier on how it fits into place. (important)
Lift out the bobbin carrier.

Each machine is a little different. You may want to take pictures as you do each step for later reference. Use something like an old egg carton or a muffin tin to keep your parts from rolling around or getting knocked off an lost.

Have fun.

My thread is looping underneath the fabric. I use a pfaff 1472. Would this be the needle?


Top tension is insufficient, so probably your top tension dial is either turned right down, gunked up or the thread isn't into it properly. Start by unthreading top thread, raising pressure foot, turn tension dial to 5 and thread again to just after the dial, then lower the pressure foot and pull the thread, is it very firm to tug? If there is no tension on it, then the dial is faulty.

If there is tension, then try sewing again, maybe it was just threading up issue.

If you can access the metal discs that make up the tension device, then turn down to zero and "floss" between them with the selvage edge of a clean piece of cotton fabric and see if any gunk comes out. Many black and dark threads will shed dye particles and if you have used cheap cotton this will shed too, gunking up the tension. Good practice to clean it out regularly.

Bobbin thread getting all nested underneath fabric


I have found that either the bobbin is not threaded correctly or the top is not threaded correctly. Try re-threading your machine. I always sew on a test piece before sewing on my project.

I'm trying to do shirring?


My machines has a shirring foot, so I don;t have the same machine. However, I do not think that elastic thread will work in the bobbin. Have you tried it the other way around? Do you have your manual?
