Question about Bernina Artista 180

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.

Your timing has been messed up by breaking the needle. When the needle hit the bobbin race, it shoved the needle bar up and now the needle is not in the correct position to catch the bobbin thread when the race rotates. The needle has a little dip in the back, called the scarf. When you take the neddle plate off and watch it move, you should see the little hook pass through the scarf. That's how it makes the locking stitch and picks up the bobbin thread. Unfortunately, you will need to take this in to a dealer or service place to have them adjust the needle bar height. It's not a complicated task so see if they can check it while you wait. It may be more difficult to fix, like retiming the machine. But it doesn't sound like you've done any major damage to the mechanism.

Try changing the needle again. I have had some cause me trouble even if new. And make sure the bobbin is in the right way.
