SOURCE: Picking up the bobbin thread

A few suggestions:

  1. Rethread top of machine from scratch with the presser foot raised, i.e. remove thread completely from all thread guides & paths and start from scratch, making sure thread is securely seated between tension disks. Once the needle is re-threaded, lower the presser foot and give the tail end of the thread a tug to make sure there's tension on it.
  2. Make sure the bobbin is turning the correct direction for your machine - and that the thread tail is under the tension plate or bobbin tension guide (depending on machine).
  3. Blow out any fuzz.
  4. Insert a new needle, making sure needle is pushed all the way up.
  5. Oil machine (in locations recommended in your owner's manual).
If the basic cleaning and re-threading (above) don't help, your machine(s) may be out of time or have another mechanical issue that will require a repair technician. We recommend a tech trained on your specific brands - they'll be better trained and able to get any repair parts that may be needed.

Hope this helps narrow down your stitching problems.

Happy sewing,
Kim & Linnette

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: Bobbin thread will not stitch.

Have you had the machine serviced since you purchased it? This is something that should be done at least once a year.

Take the machine to a certified Singer dealer and explain what is happening. There may or may not be something that needs to be adjusted.

Your warranty is still in effect, but is now limited. Attempting to repair it yourself or having someone who is not a Singer dealer repair it will invalidate the remaining warranty.

How do I thread the 960 Bernina Bobbin?


I'm assuming you have a front loading bobbin. Look at your bobbin. Hold it so the thread is falling down from the top to the right side. Slip it straight in to your bobbin case, and pull up through the slit, until it snaps in through the side clip.
Generally, if you are missing stitches, the hook isn't picking up the thread from the needle, and you will need to take it in for service at a Bernina dealer.

12 wt thread


12 wt thread generally will not work well in the bobbin...


"Aurifil 12wt Thread
Aurifil 12 wt thread is ideal for hand quilting, big stitch hand quilting and machine quilting. 12 weight thread creates a more defined and often primitive look. It's great for designs that use a longer stitch length if using a machine. When machine quilting with 12 wt thread, use 40 wt in the bobbin, increase your stitch length, lower your tension, use Topstitch size 90 needles and stitch slowly."

Needle will not pick up bobbin thread (Bernina 830) despite tightening handwheel therefore no stitching. Have cleaned bobbin mechanism and have checked and rechecked bobbin threading. Have tightened


Make sure needle is inserted with the scarf(small indentation above needle eye) to the back and fully inserted. Otherwise it could be out of time which would require a technician.

Bernina activa 210 won't zigzag and has bobbin issues on straight stitch


it's very possible that the machine is slightly out of time & needs to be service at a sewing machine shop
is the fabric & thread & needle compatable with each other?
did you use every thread guide when threading the machine?
is the bobbin in correctly?
is the bobbin warped?

I am trying to free-motion quilt using my Bernina 1530. Everything is fine until I quilt a curve or a circle. Then the thread on the back is too loose. I have tried adjusting the top tension, as well as...


I don't have the BSR (Bernina Stitch Regulator) and presume you don't either. I have found that I tend to move the fabric to quickly when sewing curves and circles. I did as you did and changed tension, stitch length...everything, but nothing worked. I finally found that the best solution was to SLOW DOWN on the curves. No problem ever since. I hope this helps you. If it does, please let Fixya know by rating my solution!

I have a Bernina 530 Record and i'm trying to but


You would be best to download an instruction manual for your machine as it explains clearly, with diagrams how to thread and insert the bobbin. You probably wont find the 530 manual however download a copy for Bernina 530-2 or 532-2 as they are almost identical to the 530.

Old bernina 830 stitching problem: tight


Sounds like you need to adjust the tension. Probably a good idea to oil this older machine before you adjust. Also look for and clean out any lint or debris in bobbin case and around foot area.

My Bernina 1530 stitches are faulty - with loops underneath, even though it looks ok on top. When I remove and rethread the bobbin, the stitches are ok for 6-12 inches then start looping again. I tried to...


This is almost always indicative of an upper tension problem.
First, make sure you're using a good quality thread. If you're using thread that's not of European manufacture, you're probably filling your tension assemblies with little fuzzies. Coats and Clark Dual Duty is the most notorious thread for causing tension issues. If you have a bunch of this thread: throw it away or use it for hand sewing.
Turn your machine off, and use some canned air to blow out your upper tension assembly. (It looks like a couple of little cymbals inside the thread path.) Set your tension dial to 4.5.
When threading, right before you actually thread the needle itself, and with the presser foot up, "floss" the thread back and forth by holding the thread at the top by the spool with your right hand, and down by the needle with your left hand. This will ensure that you force the thread into the tension assembly.
Also ensure that your bobbin is oriented the right direction, but this would be a less common cause for your symptom.
If none of these fixes work, you probably need to have your tensions professionally calibrated.

Bernina Bernette 600 Deco embroidery machine


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.

Good luck
