Look under the tools menu. There should be a setting for straight stitch needle plate or something like that.

good luck!

Look for bent bits! Also try a new bobbin/ if it's the type that locks into position, there maybe an issue with the lock on that bobbin. Once you load the bobbin, slowly turn the flywheel intil you feel the thread snag and see where the boo in is facing-will give you a better chance of solving issue. Also, if there is a thread tensioner, turn it way down....

The tension setting adjustment is found in the tools menu

After cleaning out the bobbin area, re-threading the top thread, turning my Pfaff 4.2 off and on it still said " remove thread jam under the the stitch plate". I pushed the "ok" button and it started working again.
Keeping my fingers crossed.

The presser foot will not go all the way down to the plate with straight sewing and embroidery sewing as well leaving me with a jumbled mess

May be, you have not the right tools to open your pfaff chassis. In your case I prefer to get support from pfaff: http://www.pfaff.com/de/692.htmlIt's a risk to open the chassis, you can't see, where it is fixed. If you try to open, the risk is high your pfaff will take damage.

The top thread breaks

1. the needle thread is not threaded properly

2. The needle thread tension is to tight

3. The needle is bent or blunt

4. The needle is incorrectly inserted

5. The needle thread & the bobbin thread are not set under the presser foot when starting to sew

6. the threads were not drawn to the rear after sewing

7. The thread is either to heavy or to fine for the needle

8. Try a different spool or cone of thread

Bobbin thread breaks


1. There is a right way & wrong way to insert the bobbin in the case --when you insert the bobbin in if it doesn't stitch correctly turn the bobbin over see if that helps or bobbin case is not inserted correctly


2. Lint has collected in the bobbin holder


3. The bobbin is damaged & doesn't turn smoothly


4. Lower thread tension is two tight

Take off the presser foot
take off the needle plate
take off the bobbin plate
take out the needle,
clip bobbin free,
Examine the bobbin carrier on how it fits into place. (important)
Lift out the bobbin carrier.

Each machine is a little different. You may want to take pictures as you do each step for later reference. Use something like an old egg carton or a muffin tin to keep your parts from rolling around or getting knocked off an lost.

Have fun.
