SOURCE: Bobbin Carriage clanking noise, yet the machine sews fine??

If your bobbin area is making a noise, then do NOT sew with the machine until a reputable technician looks at it. You may have thrown something just a little off line - not enough to affect sewing NOW, but it could easily cause troubles down the line.

I suggest you call ahead and talk directly to the repair person - not to the sales person. Ask if you can bring in the machine while he/she is in the shop so they can listen while you run it.

You aren't trying to cheat the store out of the repair charge, just ensuring that the problem is diagnosed correctly.

You paid lots of money for this machine - it deserves good care.

SOURCE: Bobbin thread not being picked up

This unfortunately sounds dismally like a timing problem. When a sewing machine makes a sudden mechanical stop as when a needle is bent slightly and hits the needle plate, sometimes the other machine bits revolve along further causing the needle to be introduced into the hook either to early or to late to catch the thread.

To test this, remove the thread, the needle plate and and the bobbin case. Replace the needle with a brand new one. Yes, again. Revolve the machine by hand via the balance wheel and watch closely as the needle goes into the hook region allow it to it move down and then just start to move up. If the tip of the hook is not pretty close to right behind the needle than it is more than likely a timing problem.

If the tip of the hook is behind the needle in the scarf (the slight hollow on the back of the needle) than it is not timing. Thread the machine normally like it is and watch what happens as you manually turn the machine via the balance wheel. The thread should catch and be pulled around the hook and let go.

Try this and then either you figured it out the problem or contact me again. Either way please vote. Thanks

SOURCE: Bernina 180 Bobbin case spinning

Its called the bobbin stopper. Pop off your needle plate by pressing on the marked corner. In the back on the left you will see a small allen screw which must have come loose. Position the bobbin stopper in place and tighten that screw. If it already is tight, loosen it and reposition the bobbin stopper in the notch and tighten it back up.
Good luck.

SOURCE: Machine not working after bobbin installation

Hi, it may be possible that you put the bobbin in the case upside down and its turning the wrong way. Flip it over and try it. When looking at the bobbin in the case from the back and you pull the thread, it should turn clockwise.
Hope this helped as anything else may take a tech to diagnose.

I would suggest calling Bernina, but I bet you already thought of that. I think you really need a technician to determine what needs repairing or replacing. Sorry can't be of more help

Could a missing bobbin case keep a Bernina 1000 from running? It turns on, and the hand dial works, but foot pedal doesn't run the machine


no a bobbin case won't keep it from running, there may be a problem with the foot control, or the plug that you plug the foot pedal into may have a problem, may need to have the machine check along with the foot pedal

I have a faithful 730 Bernina and currently the bobbin thread keeps breaking. Please advise what may be causing this. Thanking you.


Bobbin thread breaks
1. There is a right way & wrong way to insert the bobbin in the case --when you insert the bobbin in if it doesn't stitch correctly turn the bobbin over see if that helps or bobbin case is not inserted correctly
2. Lint has collected in the bobbin holder
3. The bobbin is damaged & doesn't turn smoothly
4. Lower thread tension is two tight

here's a free manual

Thread jams starting with 1st stitch on Bernina 160


since a needle broke, & a new needle was put in, was the needle inserted correctly, normally flat side to the back of the machine, & pushed all the way into the needle holder
rethread the machine top & bobbin
make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case.
if none of these suggestions help, then it's possible that when the needle broke it could have caused the machine to jump time & would have to be checked at a sewing machine shop

I used the embroidery bobbin sewing and now it's not functioning


I do not believe the bobbin thread is the reason for the problem.

Refer to your manual for maintenance, especially cleaning the bobbin area.

When you replace the bobbin case be sure the needle is in it's highest position and this will also set the shuttle in position to properly accept the case.

If the problem continues, then machine will need to go into the shop. If the timing needs to be adjusted, this is best done by a Bernina tech.

Using a bernina gold latch bobbin case on the Bernina 435 machine


There isn't a Bernina 435. If you are referring to the 430 than the gold latch bobbin case will not work in that machine. If you are talking about the Bernina 450 the gold latch will work in that machine, with or without the embroidery module.
