It would be a good idea to have the sewing machine checked to see if there is something wrong with the motherboard.

Hi. I have a Bernini 145. What is the best setting for a satin stitch? Thank you.

It will depend to a great degree on the thread that you use. Basically, you want a stitch length that does not allow fabric to show between the stitches but far enough apart so the stitches do not overlap.

Then there is the trick of keeping the stitch at a consistent 90 degree angle to the fabric edge. Whenever going around a curve, stop frequently with the needle down and slightly turn the fabric to keep that 90 degree angle. Also, be sure to sink the needle on the outside of the curve before turning the fabric. This possibly will cause the stitches to overlap on the inside of the curve so there will be no gap on the outside curve.

I have a singer CG 590C. It didn't come with manual. I'm just learning to sew. My bobbin was hung up with thread when I pulled on it I pull the whole bobbin casing out. How do I get it back in? Help

First thing, you should probably get a manual for your machine.
Singer CG 590 Commercial Grade Manual

How to thread Singer CG 590

This machine is listed as a commercial grade professional sewing machine, so you are going to have some additional learning curve if you are just beginning to sew.

How do you install the bobbin for the Singer XL 420 sewing machine?

It is explained and pictured on pages 14 and 15 of your user's manual. If you can't find it, you can download another free from the Singer Sewing Machine site.

There is a drawing on your machine near the bobbin indicating the correct direction the bobbin must be inserted, and it is essential that you put it in that way.

You must also insure that you have the thread in the correct thread path; the bobbin case exerts tension on the thread, but it can't do that unless the case is threaded properly. It is not hard to do, and those pages have illustrations as well.

Your machine does quite a lot, and because of that, there is a learning curve. You will not be able to just turn it on and press the button get good results with it. Use your manual as your BIBLE, and join a user's group. There are several Futura user's groups on FB--I strongly recommend that you join at least one or two.

I have a juki 9000, we were having tension issues but have finally gotten the perfect straight stitch. But when going around corners the top thread pulls to the bottom and gives that pulled look instead of...

As a rule, it is because there is less tension on the upper thread from a couple things:
1, the material on the curve is thicker and the foot is pushed higher in the air as it rounds the corner. When it is pushed higher in the air, it automatically opens the tension slightly and lets more thread through. I especially have that problem if I have cording on that curve.
2. something that I have a problem doing myself is that my knee is on the knee lift slightly, trying to help me get a smooth curve. When I do that, it does the same thing as above; it releases the tension just enough to give you too much thread and the stitch pulls to the bottom,
Just some possibilities:
1.)I have had some success by making my stitches shorter, pressing the curve flat with steam if necessary, using a narrower two toe foot (zipper foot generally doesn't have enough pressure to hold it down while I am sewing the curve).
2.)I have tried a Teflon foot on thin fabric with lighter foot pressure. 3.)Possibly a size needle that is one size larger than the one you are using now or a thread that is slightly lighter weight or smoother.
4.) Its awkward but if you can only use your left hand to guide your material around the curve (and it works really well once your practice. My friend used to make shoes and taught me this years ago), then use the index finger of your right hand to put a slight pressure on the tread as it comes down to the needle bar when you are going around the curve, you may be able to make up for the release of the tension discs.
Good Luck!

How do I know where the tension needs to be on my machine? I thread it and put the presser foot down. I pull on the thread and it keeps coming out for a few seconds, then it will slightly bend the...

Tension is more a try it til you get t correct thing. Different types/strength threads require different tension, and there is a learning curve involved
We always start in the middle of the range with a thread we have not used before, if it is to tight it will break and if to loose the stitching gets loopy so we adjust.
Hope that helps some.

I need to press on the foot pedal quite hard to get it to start, but then it is too fast, I can then release the pressure on it and go slower, but in the interim in a tight curve I have lost control and...

I think that you have a faulty foot pedal, if it is under warranty or new take it back where you bought it. But, if it no in warranty there are places online to buy a new foot pedal for about $35.

Does the singer model 3820 take a special bobbin? I cannot get it to feed the thread up to the needle.

It takes a singer or universal bobbin with a flat top - not one of the plastic ones that has a curve to the top.
