Check your needle and make sure that you put it in the right way. You should have the flat side of it to the back.

Pfaff quilting machine bobbin stuck


Is there is a wad of thread that is holding the bobbin captive? If so, you'll need to use small scissors and tweezers to snip away and pull out the threads. Patience!

If the bobbin is actually stuck in the bobbin case, it could be because it is the incorrect bobbin for the machine or the bobbin was over-filled with thread. You may just need to use force to remove the bobbin. It may damage the bobbin and, possibly, the bobbin case. They are both replaceable. Or you can pick up an additional bobbin case and bobbin and try the new ones in your machine.

If the thread is not picking up the bobbin thread and you have installed a new needle, then your machine is not in time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

Pfaff 1196, needle won't pick up bobbin thread. Can I fix that?


First, be sure you install a brand new needle. Old, damaged needles frequently will not pick up the bobbin thread. If not that, then the machine is out of time. Search the internet for sites and videos discussing sewing machine timing or take it for service.

I have a pfaff 2040 and when the needle goes down to pick up the bobbin thread the main thread wraps around the bobbin housing and jams. Doesnt grab the bobbin thread. How can I fix this?


Be sure to use a brand new needle because a bent needle could miss the bobbin thread.

Search the internet for sites and videos relating to sewing machine timing or take it for service.

My Pfaff grand quilter 1200 keeps bunching up the top thread on the bottom side of my quilts. I've replace the needle and thread. It won't pick up the bobbin thread. Could this be a timing problem?


Remove the thread from the machine. (Always raise the presser foot and pull the thread up, NEVER down!).
Install a brand new needle.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading.
Rethread from the beginning and verify the thread pathway is correct.
Set the upper tension to midway between High & Low numbers--you may need to tweak this for your particular machine, but this is a standard starting point.
Confirm the bobbin is loaded and threaded correctly in the bobbin case.
Begin sewing slowly. It helps if you begin sewing with the needle in the uppermost position.
Test on medium weight woven cotton.

If it is still not picking up the bobbin thread, then it most likely is a timing problem. You can search the internet for web sites and videos regarding sewing machine timing or take it for service.

Hi I ahve a Bernina H70 model and I've been working for hours trying to thread the bobbin so the top thread picks up the bobbin thread...help!


make sure the presser foot is at it's hightest position, then thread the top
of the machine
change the needle
make sure the bobbin is not over full
that it is turned the right way in the bobbin case
if none of these suggestions work,,it is also possible that the machne is
out of time & needs to be checked at a repair shop

here's a link for a manual

Needle will not pick up thread from bobbin


Was the old needle picking up the bobbin thread ok? If it was, then there's nothing wrong with the machine. Check that the needle is inserted correctly--there's a flat side on the shank of the needle and where that goes varies widely by machine. Then check that it's threaded properly.


(I once had my needle in backwards and threaded wrong--took the machine to the shop cause I was sure my baby was broken. Cost me $85.00 to find out that on that particular machine the flat side of the needle faces left!)

Let me know if this helps!
