Pfaff 7570 bobbin tension

I have owned this machine for several years and this is the first time I have had a problem with the bobbin tension. It seems to be tight enough when I **** it in fact it seems almost to tight but when I sew a straight test strip the top stitches are looped underneath and you can pull the bottom thread straight out. If you do more than 3 inches it will start to gather and then break the bobbin thread. Is this adjustable or am I going to have to get a new bobbin? I haven't sewn in a few months but I would not think that would be the problem. I have also cleaned and oiled it. Thanks for your help. Sandy

I need to access the tension plates on my Pfaff creative 7570


To access the tension disks, remove the top of the machine as follows: 1. With the carrying handle raised, remove the cover (the piece that has all the stitches pictured). 2. Unscrew 2 screws completely; one is in the depression where the thread spool goes and the other is right behind the bobbin winder. 3. pull straight up. You may have to jiggle it a bit. 4. you should be able to see the tension disks from here.

Hello, I have a Pfaff 7570. I believe the tension spring is bad as I have to turn the dial all the way up to nine before the bottom looping stops. The bottom bobbin case tension is set correctly. Can...


Unlikely you will have problems with the tension springs, make sure you have the thread coming from the bobbin with only the slightest tension, failing that your machine may be slightly out of time

My Pfaff sewing machine has started to loop the top thread underneath. Tried fixing the tension on the bobbin thread as they state in the manual, but the problem still persists. Any suggestions?


If the thread is looping underneath, you're top tension may be too loose or the thread may not be in the take-up lever. If it's looping on top, double check that the thread is in the bobbin tension or that the bobbin tension isn't too loose.

Automatic bobbin winder does not stop when bobbin is full


Simply loosen the screw on the bobbin winder stop, no more than 1 full turn or you will drop the backing nut will fall down into your machine, move the bobbin winder stop slightly to the left then tighten the screw and see if that works. you may have to repeat this step several times until you find the right spot to stop the bobbin at the correct point.

Bobbin thread getting all nested underneath fabric


I have found that either the bobbin is not threaded correctly or the top is not threaded correctly. Try re-threading your machine. I always sew on a test piece before sewing on my project.

Thread or bobbin tension


Thread tension. Beware of adjusting the bobbin screw. Pfaffs maintain their tensions just fine without adjusting the bobbin tension, unless you're using some crazy thick or fine thread. If you must change your bobbin tension, you would be well-advised to buy an extra bobbin case, because re-calibrating your tensions after changing them can be less than fun.

Increase your top tension, and your looping should cease. I normally keep my tension around 4.5. Also make sure you're using a good quality thread, and that there's nothing in the upper tension assemblies. Sometimes a tiny piece of debris can keep the top tension from applying enough tension, so turning the machine off and blowing some canned air in there can help as well.

Good luck,

PLEASE HELP!!! Pfaff creative 7570 tension problems


Check your bobbin tension also. Embroidery bobbin thread is finer than sewing thread and you may need to make adjustment on the bobbing case by turning the small screw slightly. The type of stabilizer can affect your embroidery. An excellent reference for machine embroidery is Embroidery Machine Essentials by Jeanine Twigg, available on Amazon.
