Hi my names anela . here a little solution for you to try. take the spool out of its case and place the case on a peice of paper draw around the case, and cut out. then cut out a smaller circle in the middle. and place back into the spoolcase this should help.
if not. then you prob have the needle in the wrong way round turn your needle so the long ridge is facing inwards . thanks angela

Phaff 1472 stitches are bunching up underneath


That is thread nesting or bird nesting. Could be the result of several things, but main reasons are upper tension too loose and the thread not being completely seated in the tension disk.

Basic Tips for All

  1. Always turn the handwheel TOWARDS you (counter clockwise) as turning it in the opposite direction (away from you, clockwise) may knock the timing out requiring repair from a service center.
  2. Always be sure your presser foot is in the DOWN position before sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will cause your thread to tangle and your bobbin to jam.
  3. Change needles regularly (after 16 hours of use) as dull/weak needles can cause damage to your machine and fabric. Only use SINGER needles on your SINGER sewing machine.
  4. Always be sure you are using the correct bobbin for your machine. Class 66, Class 15 and Class 15J bobbins look very similar. However, using the incorrect bobbin class in your machine can cause damage.

Needle will not pick up bobbin thread


Try installing a brand new needle. Rethread the machine from the very beginning. The machine could be out of time, ie the needle and hook timing do not match.

How do I remove the left cover on a phaff 2140. the piece that covers the tension discs.


Don't know this machine but would avoid pulling anything off as screws have a habit of pinging out and never going back. Try pulling a thicker piece of thread or fabric through the tension disks to dislodge whatever is there first

I have juki 1541 industrial machine needle want pick up bobbin thread??


Is your needle inserted correctly? Try taking it out and inserting again. Is your bobbing threaded correctly? Try taking it out and re-threading. You might also try cleaning the bobbin area. The only other think I can think of is that you may have the wrong needle in.

How do I adjust the timing on a pfaff industrial 545?it will not pick up the bobbin thread at all.


This happened to me. Shucks, I had the wrong needle in; it was too short to reach the bobbin thread and pick it up. Installed correct needle (repair man did) and viola. . .

Make sure that the thread is under the tension spring then thread it throgh the hole in the spoolcase,push the spoolcase retainer over to hold it in then turn the balance wheel towards you to pick up the thread through the hole in the needle plate, pull both threads back and sew away. I can supply a manual for this machine if you want one.
