Question about PfaFF Sewing Machines
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

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
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.

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

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.

1. Place the thread spool on the spool pin in
against the spool.
back to front. Pull the thread clockwise around
the inside to the outside.
4. Place an empty bobbin on the bobbin spindle.
5. Push the bobbin lever to the right to wind.
A pop-up appears on the screen to inform
you that bobbin winding is on. Press the
foot control or the start/stop button to start
winding the bobbin.
When the bobbin is full, the bobbin winding
will slow down and stop automatically. The
pop-up closes. Remove the bobbin and cut the thread
