Barbara. When you removed the handwheel did you find a bit weird looking washer with ears around the outside and to fingers pointing to the center of the washer? If so you probably put that in backwards. The center fingers are slightly bent... they would be bent toward the outside.

Hi: You have threaded the machine incorrectly. Rethread the machine with the presser foot up to the needle, pull the thread (loose) and drop the presser foot while pulling thread, thread should get tighter, then thread needle and machine will work fine. Make sure the top tension is set at where you normally have it, probably about #4 or #5

SOURCE: How do you thread a bernina 1008?

I hope I can explain this in an understandable way!

1. Pull the end of the thread from the spool to the left and "click" it into the little metal guide (on the top of the machine) that is at the back of the long **** in the top. It's easiest to do this by holding the thread tight between your two hands, placing it behind the guide, and pulling forward until it clicks in.

2. for the remaining steps, let the thrread slide between the fingers of your right hand, keeping a little tension on it, as you thread the machine with your left hand.

3. Bring the thread end forward, laying the thread into the ****, and continue downward, along the right side of the vertical silver bar/hook thingy.

4. Bring the thread under that bar from right to left, and go back up towards the top of the wide **** in the front of the machine. As you pull up, the thread will click into the lower bar/hook thingy.

5. Lay the thread along the right side of the wide ****, go over the top of the needle bar (the part that goes up and down in the ****) and bring it down the left side. It will click into the needle bar.

6. Bring the thread back down towards the presser foot. Right in front of the screw that holds the foot on, there is a hook that opens on the left side. Slide the thread behind this hook, and then thread the needle from front to back.

7. Hold onto the end of the thread and run the needle down and back up once. Pull on the thread, and it will pull up a loop of the bobbin thread. Stick the tip of your scissors or seam ripper into the loop and pull the end of the bobbin thread out.

8. Slide your top thread through the slot in the presser foot so it comes out from underneath the foot, and you're ready to go! (Be sure and hold onto both threads for the first few stitches when you start a seam, to keep if from jamming up inside.)

Let me know if you need any clarification.

Your bobbin wind is on. The hand wheel needs to be tightened in order for the needle to sew.

The wheel release to wind my bobbin on a 1008 will not move. What can I do?


It may be freed up with brute force and awkwardness. If you don't have a gorilla living with you try using a rubber glove to get a better grip on the knurled knob. If that does not work you can escalate to a pair of large pliers and protect the knob by using the glove. If you still can;t get it become angry so you have some adrenaline flowing then attack it with a pipe wrench.

My bobbin case jumps out while I am sewing on my bernina 1008.


it sounds like the bobbin case needs to be replaced, have you cleaned under the needle plate & bobbin area for lint & loose threads
I also would suggest to take the machine to a different sewing machine repair shop.

Where is the had wheel relaese in bernina 1008


The handwheel is in two parts - the inner part with the grooves on the outside is turned anti-clockwise about a quarter turn whilst holding the outside part to disconnect the drive from the needle bar, when winding a bobbin. Dont forget to re-tighten it before sewing and dont overtighten it otherwise it'll be difficult to disconnect the clutch again.

Needle not going up and down but power getting to the machine


Check your manual for the bobbin winding steps for your particular model.

On some machines there is a knob in the center of the hand wheel that is loosened for bobbin winding - this also disengages the movement of the needle. Tighten for sewing.

There may be an additional step, such as moving the bobbin winding pin to the right or the bobbin winding wheel to the left.

Heat the wheel with a hair dryer to loosen. If this does not help, you will need to visit an authorized Bernina dealer.
