Hello Kathy
Make sure that:
1. The correct bobbin is being used ... make sure that the bobbin is the one specified for your machine.
2. Make sure that the bobbin is pushed all the way down on the bobbin winding spindle.
3. Make sure that the bobbin winder is engaged ... pushed over for winding.
4. Make sure that the thread is not tightly wound around something preventing it from advancing onto the bobbin.
5. Refer to page 18 of the Manual. If you need one, it is available for free at:
PFAFF tiptronic 6232 Instruction Manual Page 22

May this get you back to sewing very quickly. Please give me a thumbs up if this is helpful, otherwise send me more information.

Sounds like there is thread around the bobbin winder shaft and the machine is unable to continue winding, needs stripping and looking at. This is not something you should attempt yourself unless you know what you are doing. A reasonable sewing machine tech should be able to sort it out in a few minutes.

SOURCE: Can't wind the bobbin

Hi again,

Well we finally downloaded a service manual that cost a few bucks, then finished getting the machine apart, then found a small rubber O-ring that had obviously gotten hot when spinning after the tangling of the thread on the bobbin stem. You could see where the heat had melted tiny teeth marks in the ring and it was stretched out of shape. It and yours too will need to be replaced.

If you or someone you know is mechanically inclined, you will need to take five screws out of the back including a hard to find one under the foot raising lever (lower the foot), then one form the front that is under the thread cartridge, and you will have to remove the bobbin winding plate cover which is held by one small screw, and then remove a small screw from the support bar.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Bobbin winder will not spin on sewing machine

If you take the top off you will see a tiny rubber tire that engages the winder to the handwheel. Over time they get really soft are really hard and disintgrate. If you have a local sewing shop take the old one in and get a new one to slip on it takes only a few minutes and cost usually less that $2.00

SOURCE: Singer Sewing Machine model 9224. Bobbin thread

If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.

Let me know.

Pfaff 1475 CD I can't disengage sewing mechinism is that an expensive fix?


Are you trying to disengage to wind a bobbin?

A quick, easy, and inexpensive fix is to pick up a stand-alone bobbin winder (one brand is called Sidewinder). Just verify first that your bobbins will work on it. You can usually find it at the chain fabric stores or look online.

How to thread bobbin 451 Pfaff


Having difficulty even locating a photo of the 451. Assuming this is an older model, perhaps this manual will help. It says its also for the 551, so perhaps the model is close enough that it will help you with your machine:

Pfaff 551 Manual pages 1 viewing

If you are unable to figure out the bobbin winder, you may be able to use a standalone bobbin winder (one brand is called Sidewinder) from the fabric store. They run ~$25-30. Just be sure to bring a bobbin with you to check the fit.

My bobbin winds unevenly, there is always more thread at the bottom of it than there is at the top. Neither switching to the original pfaff bobbin nor either spool position works.


I always use my finger to guide the thread as the bobbin is winding,the bobbin shouldn't be moving around in the metalcase probably needs tightened.

How do I engage the bobbin winding gear for Pfaff 7570?


To disengage the needle while winding a bobbin do the following: the handwheel on the right end of the machine has an inner knob. hold the outer rim of the handwheel stationary as you rotate the inner knob counterclockwise. Also make sure the bobbin winding peg is pushed over to the right and the bobbin is seated on the peg.
