Your Bernina 180 is a rotary hook model and there is a bobbin case retainer mechanism below the sticth plate that has a long spring on it - it sounds like this has become detatched at one end and may well be affecting the stitch quality. Take the stitch plate out and you will see a black rectangular metal bar in front of the rotary hook mechanism - there is a small silver part in the middle that fits in a slot in the rotary hook bobbin basket - the spring should fit on this and then extend the length of the black bar and pull onto a retainer at the other end so that there is fairly strong tension on the silver part. If not this spring, then it's probably something that's dropped-off from elsewhere and maybe, possibly the feed-dog cam retaining spring. Let me know what you find.

SOURCE: Bernina 180 Bobbin case spinning

Its called the bobbin stopper. Pop off your needle plate by pressing on the marked corner. In the back on the left you will see a small allen screw which must have come loose. Position the bobbin stopper in place and tighten that screw. If it already is tight, loosen it and reposition the bobbin stopper in the notch and tighten it back up.
Good luck.

SOURCE: using a bernina gold latch bobbin case on the Bernina 435 machine

There isn't a Bernina 435. If you are referring to the 430 than the gold latch bobbin case will not work in that machine. If you are talking about the Bernina 450 the gold latch will work in that machine, with or without the embroidery module.

4 amp??? More likely 1.6 slow blow. The problem solution is changing the power supply, called a Classic L-print. Typical on the 130/180 Bernina.

How to replace the tension spring in a bobbin case?


There are two springs on the bobbin case of a rotary hook machine like the 180 and I suspect you're talking about the thread tension spring on the outside of the case - this is held on and the tension adjusted by a two very small screws. The other spring is the brake spring which is a complicated shape spring that sits in the bottom of the case and puts a slight amount of pressure on the bobbin itself. Assuming the thread tension spring has been recovered along with its two screws, it should be fairly self-evident how it fits back onto the bobbin case - the spring lays across the **** in the bobbin case, through which the thread is pulled, so that the tip of the spring with a small right-angle bend just sits down into the aperture where the thread comes out. Now, importantly, the two screws are different sizes ... the one with the smallest head holds the spring onto the bobbin case and is screwed-down firmly through the hole in the flat end of the spring. The larger screw adjusts the thread tesnsion and is screwed through the hole with the slight conical sides. Now the tension should be adjusted to 5g using a proper gauge, but failing that, insert a bobbin loaded with a thread such as Metrosene and thread the bobbin case up. hold the end of the thread so that the bobbin case hangs on the thread - it should not move/unreel itself. If it does, adjust the tension screw (the bigger one) a little bit at a time until it doesn't unwind. The approximately correct tension is obtained when the bobbin will only unreel when you **** the thread upwards gently. You can fine adjust the tension to get the correct balance by ensuring the top tension is set to normal (red line) and adjusting the bobbin tension until the stitch lays properly in the fabric - use different colours top and bottom to check this. Be aware that the bobbin thread tension varies quite alot with only a small rotation of the adjusting screw, so take it is small steps.
Hope this helps.

Can you tell me what the bobbin image on the artista 640 means? It will only sew for a few stitches and then stop


Hi, most likely your bobbin sensor is being blocked by something. Common causes are a dirty sensor. Q-tip on the eye of the sensor inside the bobbin door. Or there is fuzz blocking it. Next take out the bobbincase and the bobbin. Look in the bobbincase and you will see a round spring. This spring acts like a brake for the bobbin. Sometimes these springs will get moved and out of position blocking the little space that the bobbin sensor reads through. Reposition the spring so you can see through it and the bobbincase.
That should do it.
Good luck.

Needle broke of and I think it went into the bobbin area. Now I think that the timing is off . I have a bernina 180.


Have you removed the broken pieces? The bobbin holder snaps out with 2 side holders to remove broken needle pieces. I don't think that the timing can get off by a broken needle. My first original bobbin holder got damaged which was made of hard plastic, from embroidering, and I ordered a stainless steel model which is available from a Bernina dealer, and all works very well for the last 2 years, there was never any problem.

Viewer states problem - but cannot correct.


Hi, if you look in the bobbincase you will see a round spring. Sometimes this gets moved and it blocks the hole the sensor reads through. Clean inside the bobbincase with a q-tip. Also clean the sensor lens on the door with a q-tip. Also try rewinding a bobbin but don't start with the thread through a hole in the bobbin.
Hope this helps.

Have the artista 180 and the thread keeps


Hi, possibly you have put the bobbin in upside down. Try flipping it over in the bobbincase and see what happens. It should turn clockwise when looking at the bobbin and pulling the thread.Check that your upper tension is not too loose. Check that it is threaded correctly.
Hope this helps.

Where is the shuttle race on a Bernina Artista 180? I'd like to be exact as to where to put the drop of oil.


Just to the left of the bobbin case you will see a small lever. Remove the bobbin case and push the lever and that will release the latch which holds the race cover and shuttle (hook).

Clean well with a toothbrush and place one small drop of oil on the edge of the hook where it makes contact with the raceway. Place the hook back and snap the race cover back on.

How to load bobbin into bobbin holder


When you have the bobbin wound and placed in the bobbin case pull on the thread. If the bobbin turns counter-clockwise the bobbin is in upside down. The bobbin must turn clockwise when you pull the thread looking at it from the back..
Then slip the thread into the notch and pull it up under the flat spring up into (through) the hole.
Thats it, now snap it in the machine.
