Pfaff 2046 issues with bobbin - hook assembly

I bought my 2046 when they first came out and have had it ever since. I use it for making garments, repairing-altering jeans, and some quilting. I have always had an issue with the zig zag stitch and the overlock stitch. I like to use the overlock stitch to finish my seams. And of course the zig zag to repair jeans. I can only go so far and the machine locks up and I have to rethread, untangle and start all over. I always use metrosene or gutterman thread. I waste a lot of thread and time. I had the machine checked when I needed to replace the threaded and the guy told me it was fine. So when it did that I quit sewing for the day and tried again the next day. It usually worked. About a year and a half ago, it started acting up more. I took it in and he checked it out good, and he made minor adjustments. I couldn't tell any difference. A month ago it seized & the entire bobbin case moved and I was unable to move the needle all the way down. It hit he bobbin case because it was in the wrong spot. A part was broken and he replaced it. Now I just the machine back today and started sewing, it jams up and same thing. Bobbin case moves all over the place and I can't put the needle down. Very frustrating. I know I have the metal hook assembly but is it possible that is the problem?? I have read it is an issue in this model but my tech says no. It has never worked right with those stitches so something isn't right!! Thanks!

Take it back he's not fixing the problem he's just Adjusting. On my machine I had it jam the needle
Broke part of the bobbin case off . It caught that part all the time. I took the piece of material in that I was sewing on and showed him. I also showed how it was sewing on the stitches.
Problem solved.
I would take it back show him that piece of fabric
He's taking the short cut.

I'm taking I to someone else next week. The guy argued with me on the phone today that I was using the machine for more than it was meant to. What??? I can't make garments and repair jeans on a pfaff 2046??? Sounds like an excuse to me... I'm tired of the same issue and want to get it resolved. The machine doesn't do much good just sitting there.

When I owned a 2056 the bobbin hook assembly started having problems. The same thing happen to my dd 202x model. This assembly had to be replaced and at that this many of the Pfaff machines were having the same problem. Check to see if it is silver metal looking or black. The black one is the newer one and fixed the problem. You may need to change it. Hope this helps.

Mine is the silver one. I have had problems with this machine since I got it. I have never been able to use the decorative stitches because it always jams up, thread breaks, etc...very frustrating. Now to get the tech to listen to me. They always comment how clean and well maintained my machine is, charge me an arm and a leg and never fix anything. The position arm finger is what broke last time, and it just did it again. My nearest tech won't be back in town until after Jan 6th, so I'll just have to wait and research and probably frustrate the tech even more by then
