Bobbin thread low, have lost the message which indicates the bobbin needs to be changed?

Make sure there is no dust or lint in the way of the sensor. Any lint there will stop the sensor from advising you that the bobbin needs to be replaced.

While embroidering, the bobbin sensor message comes on alerting me to low bobbin thread. I'm using a prewound bobbin.

perhaps dust on the sensor . personally I dislike all these new fancy machines as they seem to fail where my old ones just keep on doing their jobs .

How to Turn Off the Bobbin Sensor in the Bernina Artista 640

make sure you're using the appropriate bernina bobbin, others can confuse the sensor. This video(by Bernina Boys) shows how to clean lint to prevent this problem which is what often causes this error. Or go into settings by pressing the diamond with right hand arrow inside of it. The eye with the speaker next to it should get you where you need to go to turn it off.
The manual on Bernina's website is here:

page 98 has the information you want.

Each machine is different. Most of the machines that are electronic have a sensor to shut it off if you place the bobbin on the winder and push the winder into its position to wind. Give it a try. Also, check your spindle at the end to pull it outwards or attempt to untighten like you do a jar. This is the old mechanical machine but it is possible this machine uses it. Next you must look on your monitor for a particular symbol that represents the bobbin. This would likely be a button to turn it off and on.

Does not recognize when bobbin thread has run out

Clean out the bobbin area. Try to determine where you sensor is and used canned air to clean that. Hopefully it's just a dirty sensor and not a bad one.

Good luck

Babylock espire bobbin sensor not working

This is normally caused by lint in the bobbin area, the lint blocks the sensor causing it to be blind. Try cleaning the area and see if that helps.

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.

I have a Bernina Artista 730. Very few inches of

I know this is a long-overdue response, but maybe it will help someone else. I had the same problem, and it turned out that the cause was that my bobbins had oxidized. Rubbing them with a bit of steel wool or fine-grain sandpaper did the trick, and I was up and running again.

Not being notified when the bottom bobbin thread is running out

There is a light sensor that "shines" through the bobbin and lets the computer know when your low on thread. If you were looking straight down on the bobbin it's beam runs from the 10 O'clock positoin to the 5 O'clock positoin straight through the bobbin. Sometimes lint gets in the way of the sensor on the left side.(the 10 O'clock side) Take out your bobbin case, turn the handwheel until the opening on the spinning thread hook in the machine exposes the 10 O'clock positoin and using a can of air or a compressor, blast that area to knock the lint out of the sensor. The sensor is located below the gray plastic housing to the left of your bobbin area. You won't be able to see it but you can see a slightly raised area in the plastic that covers it if you inspect the area. You have to tilt the machine back and look under the gray bed to see the "updent" in the plastic. Blow out that area for your best chance. Other than that It could be a number of adjustments and even a bad sensor. Good Luck
