How do you thread a Pfaff sewing machine

Posted on Jun 15, 2008

  • Ola Kinberg Dec 02, 2013

    Pfaff 463 is thread starting from the top of that pin on top of the machine. Thread comes out on the side so let it pass through the other hole in that pin. Then go thru the flat thing with several holes. Go through it two or three times. Then just like most other sewing machine. With one exeption: i reckon its better to let the thread run outside that bar that intentionally according to the manual is supposed to keep it close to the needle. Onemore thing: thread is going into the needle frome the left and the flat surface on the needle is suppose to be to the left.

The needle on my Pfaff 2044 won't move and the wheel won't turn. What do I do?


There may be thread caught in the bobbin area which is not allowing the hand wheel to turn. Remove the bobbin case and check the hook for threads wrapped around the spindle and/or caught in the hook mechanism. A little clear sewing machine oil in a pipe cleaner is sometimes helpful in freeing threads in this area.

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 select 1540 bobbin thread jam


if there is a thread in the hook area try taking a pair of needle nose
pliers to try & get the thread out, if that doesn't work then you might
think about taking the machine to a sewing machine shop to have the
machine checked since the needle will not go up & down & handwheel
won't move

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?
