The embroidery unit needs to be calibrated. Can only been done by a trained dealer. you can relax, it is not a major issue and shuold not cost you a arm and a leg. Ask the dealer to also calibrate your touch screen and download the working hours on your machine.

I figured out the solution for this issue. It all has to do with the threading. And I mean literally follow the instructions word for word. Most importantly is the Bobbin thread. make sure to thread the bobbin through the case eyelet.

Rose, most likely your machine is gummed up and needs oiling. A product called Tri-Flow is best. It can be purchased at most any hardware store. Or just use normal sewing machine oil. Open the top and put a fair amount of oil down behind the knobs and let it soak in. As it soaks just wiggle the knobs or turn them little by little back and forth until they free up. Don't force anything as something will break.
Good luck

SOURCE: Bernina 180E Embroidery module not recognized

Anytime there is a communication issue between machine and module attach the module to a different machine and check it. Possibly at a dealership. This will tell you whether its the machine or module. If its the machine then the soldering points on the embroidery module plug to the A-print (on the side of the machine) circuitboard need to be checked. Then most likely replace the A-print circuitboard.
There are other tests that need to be done in the service program that will help pinpoint and troubleshoot issues with the embroidery unit. Such sensors or stepping motors, etc. Should be left to a tech.
Hope I helped.

My Bernini 830 would not recognize the embroidery attachment. I re-attached many times, but it doesn't work.


I assume you mean a Bernina 830. If you have removed the slide-on table, I have two possible solutions. I've seen this with a couple of Viking embroidery attachment units. (I am also assuming it's not a hoop issue.)

You could have corrosion on the pins that send the signals between the embroidery attachment and the sewing machine. Remove the embroidery attachment and turn off the sewing machine. Unplug the sewing machine. Spray the pins with an electronic contact cleaner; one example is here: http://www.homedepot.com/p/CRC-QD-11-oz-Contact-Cleaner-02130-6/202262505 . Push the embroidery attachment into the sewing machine by lifting up the far side and then sliding it into the port. Remove the embroidery attachment. Repeat this a few times. (The friction of the insertion and removal will remove any dirt or corrosion.) Plug in the sewing machine and turn it on. Try connecting the embroidery attachment. If it works, remember to clean the contacts the next time the embroidery attachment isn't recognized.

Once I helped someone with two sewing/embroidery machines with an unrecognized embroidery attachment. In that case, the person swapped which embroidery unit went with which machine. The contacts were not the same and didn't mate. Once the correct machine and embroidery unit were paired, the embroidery unit was recognized instantly.

I hope this helps. If it doesn't, you may need to talk to your Bernina repair technician at your local shop.

I have Bernina 830 embroidery machine. I'm still a novice with this machine. An upper thread broke and could only be removed from the right side. I know that this is a NO NO but I had no choice. I r


Do you have a manual?
http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_sacat=0&_nkw=Bernina+830+manual&_sop=15

You may need some cleaning, oiling or maintenance?
Tips for cleaning and maintenance:

Oil the hook after having used the content of 3 to 4 bobbins. The machine
screen will display a reminder

Increasing noise of the motor and/or irregular
stitch formation can also be an indication that oiling is necessary

Remove any lint from the hook and the bobbin area, then remove the stitch plate

Embroidery arm does not work


Sounds like the embroidery arm belt stop is out of adjustment. Unless you're pretty handy, take the machine and arm to a professional. If you're going to tackle it yourself, get a service manual for the machine.

Calibrate the embroidery hoop


Note
The embroidery hoop can only be calibrated with the oval hoop.. You'll find the instructions for each machine in the relevant user manual.

Embroidery foot rest on hoop


Have you calibrated your machine to the hoop? Read that part of your user manual, it sounds as if it needs the hoop calibration.

Jumbo hoop


I assume you mean the clips that attach the hoop to the embroidery unit. You just hold the hoop by means of the two clips, with a thumb and other finger on the outside of each clip - pressing them together allows the hoop to be put onto the two clips on the Y arm of the embroidery unit. When you release the spring pressure, the hoop should be retained in place on the Y arm.

I have a Bernina 180 with embroidery module. If I upgrade to a Bernina 640, would it work with my 180 module?


Unfortunately no, I think that the 185 and beyond use the same emb module. The 180 if I remember correctly, has the memory and card reader in the module itself and may have a different plug. I do know for sure that the 180 hoops will definitely not fit on the newer modules. Sorry to disapoint, Allen

The embroidery arm is not working properly. When i try to use the embroidery feature, the arm starts in the wrong area and the machine tries to put the needle through the embroidery hoop. The arm is also...


You definitely need to take that in for service. The machine has a feature that lets it know which hoop is on the machine so is can't sew outside the hoop area, so if it does, you'll need a technician to make it right.
