    I just acquired an older Pfaff Tiptronic 2040 but the lady could hot find the manual for it...I could purchase one for $30 but as soon as I do she will probably locate the book.

    The problem is that no matter how I thread it, the end result is a bunch of thread under the material. I have done and redone the threading so I must not be doimissing something along the line. Bobbin seems to be doing ok.

    Once I get that figured out perhaps trial and error will show me how to work the rest of all those buttons.

    Any one with an idea?

    I have a 2030 which is basically the same machine. I can scan my book and send you a picture tomorrow.

    Check you bobbin, it could not have the correct tension.
    Also, when the bobbin was filled the thread could be to loose.
