Your feed dogs sound like they are getting stuck,chec whether they are on the down position,and also make sure that you have cleaned any lint that builds up in the bobbin area, if all fails it will have to go into the technician,

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

SOURCE: bernina artista 180 keeps warning to check top thread

Refer to your manual for maintenance and clean the machine as indicated. A sensor may be blocked by lint.

If this continues, the machine will need to be serviced by an authorized Bernina repair tech.

Will not sew continuestly when im embrodering when i press the reverse button


It is completely normal for a Bernina 180 and other Bernina models to stitch just a few stitches and stop after first pushing the reversing button. The reason for this is so you can cut off the extra piece of top thread so it does not get caught up in the embroidery design. After you cut off that extra piece of thread, press the reversing button (hold it in till the machine starts) then it will continue with the design. Assuming you do not have a problem (a message would come up on the screen) or you are out of bobbin thread, the machine will continue to embroider till either the design is finished or it stops because you need to change the upper thread to the next color. Each time you start to embroider it will stitch about 3 or so stitched and stop. Cut off the extra thread and press the reversing button again to continue.
If this is not the problem you are having then you need to describe your problem better, in more detail.
This should help! Bill

Why won't my Bernina Activa 140 sew the blind hem stitch?


Are you absolutley sure you're not getting a problem with stitch formation on, for example, wide zig-zag. Check again, using a different colour top and bottom and make sure that the stitch is being formed properly with only the top colour on top and bottom colour on the bottom. It sounds as though the bottom loop is not being picked-up by the hook properly. Make sure you've thoroughly cleaned-out any fluff under the stitch-plate and remove the hook/shuttle and give the hook race a good clean and give it a single drop of oil, even if you've got the lightweight part-plastic hook/shuttle fitted.

My bernina patchwork 140 will not sew in reverse when I press the reverse button has the button gone bad the button hole won't sew ithe back stitch either?


Some machines will not do any of their automatic forwards and backwards movement type stitches in reverse, are you trying to reverse in straight stitch or a more complex stitch.

The Activa is a late model quality machine, do you have a Bernina dealer locally you could ring up and ask or take it to?

Bernina 1008 - tension problems


Make sure the presser foot bar is UP before you thread the machine, otherwise the thread doesn't connect propertly with the tension discs. Top thread should reel-off in clockwise direction.

Thread tension problem when sewing on heavy fabrics


Sometimes when I need to use heavy thread for top stitching to reinforce a seam that has come undone, I will use the heavy thread on the top and regular thread on the bottom. I haven't tried it the other way around for hemming but I would think it would work. I do not currently have a Bernina.
