Question about Bernina Artista 180
"Check top thread" warning message is displayed, but machine is threaded correctly.
The upper thread sensor may be bad or need cleaning off but this doesn't happen very often. What does happen is that the thread regulating spring (the spring that the thread goes through just before going up to the take up lever) has come out of a small grooved piece it fits through. By taking the side cover off you should be able to see this and possibly be able to pop it back in. A tiny amount of super glue can keep it from happening again.
