SOURCE: will not pick up bobbin thread

Unusual for this machine. Check to be sure the needle is inserted with the flat side to the back of the machine. If it is, remove the needle plate, bobbin and bobbin case. Turn the hand wheel slowly toward you and see if the point of the hook is above or below the eye of the needle when the hook point is aligned behind the needle. If the eye is above the point of the hook the machine is out of time and best taken to qualified technician.

SOURCE: bernette 90E

Our Bernette E90 timing was off due to a jam (design flaw I think)...Instructions on how we fixed it.

1. To correct timing, tip over machine and unscrew inspection plate.

2. Find the gear and unscrew the 2 grub screws so the gear is free from the shaft

3. Turn the main sewing machine handle to manually get the hook (pointed piece) of the housing (see arrow) to be directly behind the needle

4. Hold it the tightly, and turn the handle again, the needle should be able to go up and down while holding the hook in position.

5. When the needle is at it lowest and starting to move back up and the hook is directly behind tip the machine over and tighten the 2 grub screws on the gear underneath.

6. Replace inspection cover and you’re done

How to thread a Viking Huskey Model 140


Remove the needle.
The flat of the needle goes toward the back of the machine, make sure that there is a groove in the front of the needle (that goes to the top of the shank).

Reduce the tension to low (2-3). Gradually increase tension to get a proper stitch.
