Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I've misplaced the manual for my White #1008 sewing machine. It's been a long time since I used it. Can't remember exactly how to thread it. I do remember though that there were some tension problems. But, I don't remember if it was at the top or the bottom at the bobbin.

SOURCE: Top thread stitches correctly but bottom thread loops.

FYI---- Loops on the bottom-- problem is in the threading..
Loops on the top--- problem is with the bobbin.

SOURCE: viking husqvarna classica 100, thread tension

I suspect you are correctly threading the machine but the timing of the needle and bobbin hook is off. When the threaded needle goes into the bobbin area, a pointed hook grabs the thread and loops it with the bobbin thread. Something is catching when the needle starts to come up that is not allowing the bobbin thread to be pulled back through the needle plate opening by the upper thread. With machine threaded and bobbin in place, have the bobbin area open if possible and watch the thread interaction when the needle goes down. To set the hook/needle timing, normally covers have to be removed. Suggest taking it to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for service. You can find the nearest dealer by click on the "Dealer" link at http://www.husqvarnaviking.com
Good luck.

SOURCE: Bobbin thread breaks

Make sure your bobbin thread is turning clockwise as it sits in the bobbin case. There is a screw on the outside of the bobbin case you can turn with your thumb slightly to adjust tension. If you dangle the case from the thread and give it a light ****, it should move down slightly when doing so-an indicator of good bobbin tension.

Bernina 1008 thread tension is way too tight


Remember to raise the presser foot before you begin the upper threading process. May not be the problem, but you might try changing the needle and the type of thread you are using. Good luck with getting it fixed. Going back to the service provider is probably the best bet. You already paid for the service and they didn't fix the issue. Be sure to bring them a sample of how it is (mis)sewing.

I also pull the bobbin thread to the top of the fabric and gently hold both threads behind the presser foot until the machine completes the first stitch. That helps prevent the "thread nest" that is frequently created under your fabric. This is a procedure that is taught by Bernina instructors, and it does work.

Hi, I'm guessing you have the bobbin in the bobbincase upside down and its turning the wrong way. Or the machine is not thread correctly. Possibly there is junk in between the tension discs at the top that the thread goes between. Just some thoughts.

Bernina 1008 sewing machine making huge clumps of loops on underside of fabric. have tried moving screw on bobbin in two opposite directions without a sign of improvement.


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

Threading a bernina serger


Here is a little jingle to remember as far as the order of threads to thread...
Upper looper, lower looper, left needle, right.
Usuall if you give numbers to the threads from left to right as 1,2,3,4 , you would thread it in the order of 3, 4, 2, 1 . Also when threading the loopers be sure the lower looper thread goes over the top of the upper looper thread as it goes out the back.
Hope this helps.
