How to remove broken off needle from pfaff machine why is bobbin not working

Where is the broken needle stuck? The broken upper part should just come out like a regular needle (via the needle-screw). If the broken tip is stuck, try removing the bobbin case from the machine. When that is released, everything under the needleplate should be accessible.

If the needle is hitting, most likely your machine has been knocked out of time (which frequently occurs when the needle strikes something it shouldn't). Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

If it is stuck in the bobbin mechanism, you can remove the bobbin case to extract it. You probably should find and remove the broken piece because it can cause severe damage to your machine. I've actually picked my machine up and shook it to find the broken needle. Sometimes it drops straight through and is actually setting under the machine.

How to chang ethe needle

there should be a little hand screw near the top of the needle, loosen it enough to slide the broken needle out, replace with a new needle and tighten, Just remember, if you don't have the needle in properly you will ave issues. Usually, the flat part of the needle goes to the right, I have a brother sewing machine and the flat part on mune goes to the back though. Just take note when you remove the old needle as to the position. Also, a little known fact, a sewing machine needle should be replaced after 8 hours of use.

Change needle?

If you are asking if you should change the needle, yes. My experience is that a dull needle will cause problems long before it breaks. If you are asking how to change the needle, then: first raise and then remove the foot (not really necessary but makes it easier) If possible do not remove the screw that secures the foot. Next loosen the small screw that secures the old/broken needle in place. Remove the old/broken needle, paying close attention to the needle's alignment (which direction is the flat side of the shaft facing) Insert the new needle with the same alignment as the old needle. Tighten the small securing screw, replace the foot and tighten the screw that holds it in place. Rotate the machine by hand to insure that the new needle does not strike or rub against anything during it's full cycle. Sometimes a broken needle will indicate a timing problem or a incorrectly installed bobbin holder. Re-thread the machine and check for proper operation.

Broken needle

Remove the needle plate and Turn the machine upside down and shake it or just leave it alone. It will not get into your gears. If you can see the needle you can take it out with some tweezers.

Needle broken in the needle-slot

Can you please tell me what brand name and model the machine? I need to determine how the needle is normally held in place and how you usually release the needle. I have a couple of ideas but having a little bit better picture of the needle holder will help me provide you the best solution. Thanks
