SOURCE: fabric does not move forward

When I first got my creative 1473 it was pretty much the same story... after gentle repeated tries over the next few days the presser bar came down all the way. It simply hadn't been touched in 20 years and needed some 'warming up', so to speak.

Make sure your tension is set on 5 and you don't have dirt stuck in your tension unit.

SOURCE: Pfaff 260 bobbin thread not picking up

Hi. This can be terribly frustrating, but the most likely cause for the bobbin thread not catching is that the needle is inserted wrong. There is a flat side on the shank of every needle and that has to be facing a specific way on your machine or the needle's grooves can't make the stitch. On most modern machines, it's my experience that the flat side goes to the rear, facing away from the operator, but some of my older machines need the flat side facing to the left or to the right.

Another thing that can cause the bobbin thread not to pick up is a bent needle, but in my experience it's usually the needle not in correctly.

(Cost me $85.00 to find this out!)


Let me know if this works, ok?

Happy Sewing!

Robbie

Have you changed your needle? If so do a visual check on the bobbin case area.

-With the bobbin door open, so you can see the bobbin case, turn the hand wheel towards you and you should see the needle come down and the top thread catch and loop around the bobbin thread and pull both to the top.

-If if is not, it is going to be your hook to needle timing or clearance.

When the needle is on the up movement, the hook should pass right above the eye of the needle.

While I was sewing the machine stopped properly threading, so I tried rethreading and checking bobbin tension, but it looks like the needle is just not reaching the bobbin, so it is missing the bobbin...

Fabric does not move forward


Either the presser foot does not have enough pressure on it or it is not lowering all the way to the fabric.
Remove the fabric.lower the presser foot.If the presser foot has no or little pressure look for the pressure regulator on top the machine or on the left side and see if you can make it tighter. Not all machines have this.Look to see if there is space between the foot and the teeth when you turn the handwheel. If there is space then the machine needs an adjustment.
