Question about Bernina Bernette Deco 600

Needle is hitting something

I am new to embroidering. I just purchased a deco 600 and it worked great on the first 4 things I embroidered. Then it started making anoise like the needle is hitting something. i changed the needle,bobbin,fabric,tension. I removed the bobbin and inner rotary hook to clean and try to see what it is hitting.The bobbin side is embroidering fine the top is not, looks like the bobbin thread is not catching the top thread. Should I take this in for repair or try to fix myself? I was sewing patterns fine until the thread got stuck on 1 pattern. I got it unstuck but know the top thread will not pick up the bottom thread. I opened it up and it looks like the bobbin thread is not getting grabbed or picked up by anything down there. I am good at problem solving and following directions if you could suggest some things to try I would appreciate it.

I'm going to suggest taking back for exchange. Obviously, there shouldn't be any noise of something hitting, so I'm going to say the either something internally is bent, broken, or misalligned. With it being as new as it is, you shouldn't have any problems at all, especially one of this nature.

HI,

You will have to retime your needle.Try this out:

"Timing" is the alignment of the needle at its lowest point and the hook on the bobbin case. The point of the hook must pass directly behind the "scarf" of the needle fo the interlocking loop of a "single needle lockstitch" machine to occur. Look closely at the needle. You will see the long groove along the front of it. This is where the thread rides as the needle goes up and down. If you look at the back of the needle you will see a flattened area just above the point. This is the "scarf"; it's flattened to permit the hook of the bobbin case to run right by it and catch the loop.
When a machine is out of "time", the hook is either too early or too late, OR to far away from the scarf to make the connection. You can send a machine out of time by hitting a pin, or breaking a needle "hard" (too fast through too many layers, etc.). You can usually identify a machine that is out of time by multiple skipped stitches at high speeds, or by stitching fast and then quickly putting it into reverse. Sometimes, you can scrape by if you rotate the insertion of your needle a little bit, this can help compensate for minor timing issues.

When I turn on the machine I get a message that says Lower needle, raise pressure foot and power on machine. It is making a noise and the carrige wont move.


it's possible that breaking the needle could have done something to the computer or damaged a part of the machine, having the machine checked
would be a good idea

Needle arm loose


Your machine needs retiming that is why the hook is not picking up the thread.
check to make sure first of all that the needle is in the correct way round

I have a 600 also...have you changed brand of white thread? Sometimes it can be the design you are embroidering that will bring bobbin thread to the top. I use the prewound bobbins--very thin thread & tightly wound.

Spacing between words


I have the Model 600. In the characters, there is one that looks like an "underline". Actually, it allows a space between words and does not make an underline mark. Some of the embroidery machines use that character to allow a space between words instead of having a "space" character.

Viking 1+--Thread breaks during embroidery


If the thread will not run through the tension mech on 0 then it is probably stuck on a tight setting. It can be a bit complicated but the tension mech can be stripped/cleaned/free'd up. Another possible cause is the path of the thread from the spool to the needle any deviation from the correct path increases the tension at the needle. If you do not know the history of the machine I would suggest a thorough clean and service.

Problem with threads not catching


Try putting in new needles. Make sure they are in the proper position. There is a stopper which keeps the needle down far enough to make the right connection. Sometimes the needle stopper, after long use, moves up a little which prevents the needle from going low enough to pick up the bobbin thread. You could try lowering the needle just a little. Not to far, or it will break the needle. Sewing machines need a lot of oil. Not all at once but a drop or two after an hour of use. All lint needs to be removed from under and around the bobbin before it is oiled. Keeping the machine clean and oiled is the life of the machine.
