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.

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.

Good luck

I had the same problem. I'm a novice sewer. I just bought my machine. It did the samething, tension didn't work, the thread kept knotting up underneath, and the fabric kept curling up in the back.

I adjusted the tension knobs to no avail. Then it kept bothering me that it was curling up. I then decided to set the dials back to where the factory had them and adjusted the presser foot just a hair counterclockwise and I haven't had anymore problems.

The other day the needle almost broke because the tension was tight on the thread. You have to make sure that the needle is at it's highest point to get it to release the fabric so you have a thread tail.

This is my first purchased machine. I had a New Home years ago that was given to me, however it blew away in the tornado of 1991 in Kansas and I never replaced it. I really do love this machine. I don't believe I will ever want another.

SOURCE: Singer Sewing Machine model 9224. Bobbin thread

If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.

Let me know.

I am not able to reverse the machine manually to pick up bobbin thread. Can not turn wheel backwards. It appears to be hitting something good or is jammed.

How do I remove the back panel of my Bernina 1080 sewing machine?


The back panel on the BERNINA 1080 is not removable. These machines are cast metal, and the main body does not disassemble. The top of the machine will come off, but what it sounds like is that your bobbin winder is engaged, and the clutch in the machine is preventing the machine from turning. Try disengaging the bobbin winder and see if your machine will run. If not, I would reccomend taking your machine to a certified BERNINA technician for repair.

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:

Bernina Virtuoso 150 - all of a sudden my machine is dropping stitches and the bobbin thread is bunching up. It also most feels like my machine is trying to do a gather stitch. I changed the needle and...


Check that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder. The bobbin tension adjustment is the small screw in the plate on the bobbin case that the thread passes under as it comes off the bobbin and goes out.
