Question about Sewing Machines
Would you have a service manual for the Bernina Deco 650 embroidery machine? I tried to get it repaired locally; but the repair place has not been able to fix it in 5 or 6 tries.
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.

The tensions are not calibrated properly. To get by, or if you do not want to take it back to the shop, just lower the upper tension a little at a time until it looks ok.

I Have had many machines that I service myself, the Bernina Decco 600 is a very simple machine to service, if your machine is running great it does not need a service, the lower mechanisum is only a bobbin area and nothing much goes wrong down there, apart from cleaning the dust and lint out there is also an adjusting screw if the timing goes out, never put oil on the top moving shafts as they tend to slip and can cause your machine to push out the timing, this machine takes all .pes format design cards, the same as brother, and there is nothing wrong with brother machines, they are very user friendly.

Not sure if you found anything out, but Deco 600 uses PES format only.
If you have the software (Deco Wizard) sometimes you can change it to PES and save the design.

You need to take the machine to a Bernina dealer for service. It may just need the timing adjusted, or there could be something else that needs to be done.
