Question about Bernina Activa 130
The impulse is to blame the bobbin, because that's where the thread bunches. But the problem is probably with the top thread tension. The tension is too loose, allowing the bobbin to help itself to all the thread it wants. Retrace the path of the thread from spool to needle and see if you missed anything. The instructions in my VX1005 manual are not clear. I had to try a couple of paths before I got it right. Make sure the spring in the tension disk setup is moving freely. You should feel a fair amount of resistance when you pull on the needle thread. Hope this helps.
