Needle arm loose

I have a Bernina Deco 600. When I try to embroider, I hear a knocking sound and the machine stops. I looked inside and it lookks like the needle arm is hittihg the frame. When I grab the needle arm it will move up and down and twist a 1/4 turn in either direction. How do I fix this. I need to fix it soon because of a time sensitive project. Please help. sperryfamily4@hotmail.com

Hello Sperryfamily

It looks like you have a problem with the machine's time based mechanism. Check that the needle is correctly inserted and try and get the timing back in phase.

Good Luck

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

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.

Breaking needles


It depends on how thick and strong your needle is- try getting a stronger or thicker needle and see if it works. Or it could just be the machine, something might be broken inside

Needle/Bobbin issues with Bernina Deco 600


Jim!

Perfect phrasing of the question, you have all the lingo/parts down pat!

First make sure your new needle is straight, then check to make sure it lines up in the center of the hole in the stitch plate.

There is basically a 1/2 sheet of papers (we use the fine waxy sticker backing paper as our guages don't fit well .1mm! ) distance between the hook and the needle.

Rotate your hook so that it is aligned with the needle in the center position, there should be 2mm between the top of the needle eye and the bottom edge of the hook.

It could be that there is a loose piece of thread, or some fluff which is obstructing the tension gauge. Try blowing around the theading area (or even run the hoover pipe near it to see if you can **** it out). I cleared mine by folding a piece of non fluffy material and rubbing gently between the tension dial and machine.

Good luck

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.
