Do you mean "going out of time". Are you sure that it is going out of time. The Pfaff 2030 don't come out of time very often. If it is I recommend taking it in to fixed, there are some gauges you realy should have to do it right. That machine should only need a clean and service once a year and be good. If there are more problems than that and your teck can't fix it find a new teck. That is a great machine.

Singer futura xl-400 should the feed dogs be disengaged when embroidering

ABSOLUTELY! The XL models of embroidery machines are supposed to automatically lower when you put the embroidery unit on, but I have had an XL-400 and currently have an XL-550 and Quintet, and I have noticed on the latter two that the feed dogs have not always automatically lowered. Incidentally, to lower or raise the feed dogs, the lever (it's in the back) goes DOWN and OVER. If you are having problems getting it move, use a straight blade screwdriver and pop the little tip off--it's not necessary to operating the feed dogs.

Also incidentally, when you raise the feed dogs, you have to turn the hand wheel towards (ALWAYS towards you for anything) several times to get the feed dogs to actually pop up. You'll hear when it does that. They lower right away, though.

Change the timing

Usually this means the machine is dirty, the needle is damaged, the needle is in backwards, the needle isn't fully up in the needle clamp, or the fabric is too thick for needle size. Rarely I find that people are trying to use a serger or industrial needle of a different needle system in their home machine. Generally, the flat of the needle goes to the back of the machine.

Timing problems are actually pretty rare, and almost always start with something like a bad jam and broken needle and many bad words.

The thread on the needle of my Elna sewing machine wont pick up the thread on the bobbin and bring it up?

Is your needle in backwards, always the flat shank to the back, make sure it is in all the way up in its housing too. Is it a new needle, not blunt, bent or hooked on the tip, sometimes we don't notice butthe needle is very important and should be changed every 4-6 hours sewing time. The shuttle hook goes around and catches the upper thread during stitch-formation, timing of these two parts is crucial so if this is a machine that has been damaged or do you suspect the timing is out perhaps. If so, technician time.

Singer 4423, timing out,what line up with what

I don't think it's a major timing issue, so don't panic. Take a look at your selected stitch pattern selector and set for straight stitch, and set Tension at 3-4. Width: 4. Length: 4. Make sure presser foot Down when you rethread machine so the tesion disks open up to locate thread. Always hold thread taut when "feeling" for tension slot. Insert new needle. Needle goes all the way up into needle clamp as far as it can possibly go, FLAT side needle toward needle bar and more rounded side needle facing you. Leave 6" tail. Hold thread toward you as you turn hand wheel toward you so needle can make a loop with bobbin thread. Make sure bobbin thread isn't hanging down on or across bobbin! Make sure thread in bobbin has wound evenly - good quality thread ideal! Clean bobbin area and feed dogs for broken, loose threads and lint. Always use needles appropriate size for weight of fabric. I suggest walking away from machine, taking deep, cleansing breadth, humming a favorite tune, then doing above and see how it goes! Soon your machine will be humming happily along with you. Hope these suggestions help. Jimmy

I cant get the needle to pick up thred from bobbin

make sure the needle is in the correct way most needles have a grove by the eye (were the thread goes thru) the grove on the needle is were the hook should pass by the needle to pick up the thread (the hook is located were the bobbin case goes into)
bellow is the only diagram a can make
! <-needle
O <-hook
this is how is works if you timing is correct
the needle goes down toward's the hook (bobbin case) when the needle is at d,b,c (dead bottom center ) the hook should be just about ready to pass by the needle as you turn the machine over. the hook should pass by the groove in the needle as it goes up (if this is correct the machine should sew) (but only if you have it threaded corectly ) Remember the needle thread thould always go thru the side of the needle without the groove first and exit the side with the groove. and also the bobbin must also only pull out of the bobbin case one way . If you look at your bobin case were the slitt/slott opens that is the way the bobbin must pull out of the bobbin case.. pretty eazy either clockwise or counter clockwise

I have a similar problem with my 7510.

As a rule of thumb, the flat side of the needle always goes towards the opposite side of the last thread guide. So on your machine, since the last thread guide is in the front of the needle bar, the flat side of your needle goes toward the rear. The needle threads front to back.and needle clamp is tight position is must

- resetting the timing

I have been an upholsterer for over 30 years, I own a Pfaff 145 and Pfaff 545. Both are basically the same. Whenever my timing is off, where the threaded needle won't connect with the bobbin thread, I have always had success in re-setting the timing by taking apart the entire bobbin case. Remove the walking foot and the plate it walks on. Remove the bobbin and dismantle everything underneath it. Keep each piece and its screws together, and remember the order in which you removed it (last goes in first, etc.)Remove any obstructions, thread, fluff, etc. Surprisingly, when you put it all back together, your timing will be back to normal. This has always worked for me, and I hope it'll work fo you.

Check upper thread

These machines typically have threading issues. In the thread path, there is a sensor that reads the thread. It quite often gets lint and pieces of thread. Where the thread goes through the thread path on the upper read is usually the culprit. Take off the plastic cover where the thread goes from rear towards front...look for the metal plates and carefully clean between them. You also need to make sure that thread goes all the way to the inside of these discs. I try to always pull the thread from spool and thread end to make sure it gets properly seated.
