Has it been unused for a long time? May have 'gummed' up.
If so, try using a little INNOX. Not WD40, CRC etc - only Innox.

My Bernana Artista 640 will sew 15 or so stitches while embroidering and then stops or the thread breaks. What can I do?


Make sure your needle is inserted into the machine correctly
It could be the design with the density of stitches is too high.

How do i get a straight stitch on my golden touch & sew model 640 machine


Check for diagrams on the selector wheel and then adjust your stitch length. Do not set to tight as your thread will break

I have a Hyundai 60 stitch sewing machine, the needle snapped so I replaced it now it won't stitch! I have changed bobbin, tension, tried different stitches but it still won't stitch! It's...


Take the needle out and put it back in carefully. If that doesn't solve the prob, replace it with another needle, and hopefully it will return to working.

Serger won't chain off a stitch. Stitches won't chain and hold to fabric. Added new needle, rethreaded whole machine. Stitches won't connect to fabric or make a chain.


is it possible that the needles are in backwards?
it's very possible that the machine is out of time & would have to be taken to a sewing machine repair shop to be retimed

Can you tell me what the bobbin image on the artista 640 means? It will only sew for a few stitches and then stop


Hi, most likely your bobbin sensor is being blocked by something. Common causes are a dirty sensor. Q-tip on the eye of the sensor inside the bobbin door. Or there is fuzz blocking it. Next take out the bobbincase and the bobbin. Look in the bobbincase and you will see a round spring. This spring acts like a brake for the bobbin. Sometimes these springs will get moved and out of position blocking the little space that the bobbin sensor reads through. Reposition the spring so you can see through it and the bobbincase.
That should do it.
Good luck.

How to find out usage on my Bernina 640 w/embroidery


For a 640: Make sure the machine is off then Press the reverse button and the needle up/down button at the same time and keep pressing while turning on the machine until the service screen come up. Select the "i" icon and then the icon that has a picture with the clock and a question mark. That will show you the hours and stitch count used. To exit the service program just turn off the machine.

Unbalanced lower tension when using BSR free motion quilting


try using a straight stitch plate, this will help resolve some of the eye lash effect.
