Question about PfaFF Sewing Machines
Please try to consider doing the steps below.
1. Try to re-thread your sewing machine. Please make sure that the thread is in the tension guides, as well as in the take up lever.
2. Now, raise your feed dog if you are piecing and not quilting.
3. Hold both the bobbin and needle thread tails in your fingers as you begin a line of stitching. This will keep the tails from tangling on the underside.
Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi, there three reasons why sewing machines lock up. Sewing machines lock up because of neglect. Sewing machines lock up because of a fluke in the bobbin area. Sewing machines lock up because of broken parts.
The most common cause of a locked up sewing machine is neglect. Sewing machines require periodic service. Old oils and grease dry out and crystallize. Use of the wrong oils can cause a sewing machine to lock up. Many oils have paraffin or other ingredients that are harmful to the sewing machine. Old Oils, grease, debris must be removed. The sewing machine requires proper lubrication. When the sewing machine maintenance is neglected, it will eventually lock up.
Flukes can happen in the bobbin area. Often the fabrics or threads used can cause problems in the bobbin area. If thread gets trapped in the race of the hook, the sewing machine will lock up. If you use very linty fabrics, the lint can bunch up in the bobbin area and cause it to freeze. Sewing machines can also lock up when a part inside the sewing machine breaks. If a gear breaks a cog, it can lock up. If a lever bends, it can lock up. If a cam assembly breaks, the sewing machine can lock up.
