Threading a Bernette 90e

I have a Bernette 90e, given to me as a Christmas present. I have not used it a lot, mainly because I can't get seem to get things threaded properly! Just today, I threaded a bobbin, inserted a new needle, and rethreaded the upper thread. I'm not certain that I'm getting the bobbin thread pulled up correctly. The direction state to insert the bobbin with the thread running counter clockwise; then pull it to the left. When I stitch, the top thread doesn't seem to be catching the bobbin thread. Can anyone help me?

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

SOURCE: I have checked the needle

These machines get knocked out of time very easy. Especially when you sew over denium. To check this, take off the needle plate, take out the bobbin case, have a new needle in, put the needle in left needle position or on wide zig zag. You going the check the timing of the needle and hook. With the needle over to the left, and when it is on it's up stroke, you want to see the hook tip passing behind the needle just above the eye of the needle. If it passes by after the needle eye has gone up, the timing is off. If so, you'll need to get access to the lower hook shaft timing belt gear set screws to readjust the timing. This also affects the feed timing, so you might have to have a repairman do this. I can help you if your up for it.

How does one thread a Bernette 320? I bought a very old one with the stitch settings all 3 on the front of the machine

Perhaps this will help:

Just an additional hint, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread. This releases the tension disk allowing the thread to seat completely.

How do I turn off THE BOBBIN winder on a Bernette 65 sewing machine?

The bobbin spindle needs to be moved to the left in the slot to disengage the winding mechanism. (It may be easier to do this with the bobbin on the spindle. The bobbin and spindle should be moved to the right after putting the bobbin on for winding.)

The directions and pictures for winding the bobbin are on page 30-31 of the manual. The manual is available from Bernina on their support page for the out-of-print Bernette machine manuals: . . The direct link to the Bernette 65 manual is here: .

I hope this helps.

How to insert bobbin in a bernette 680 sewing machine?

Try going to this link and download the manual for either the Bernette 410 or 715 and look at the directions for threading and inserting the bobbin:

Bernina may not have a manual for your particular model, but these models may be close enough that you can still use the directions for your machine.

I have a deco 600...the top thread is pulling thru to the bottom and making a seems as if the bobbin thread s not picking up. Could this be a timing issue? Can I fix this myself

sounds more like top tension device is faulting, can you clean between the tension discs? if you can get to them turn tension to zero and floss between discs with selvage edge of clean cotton fabric scrap. thread dye particles and lint will build up in there. timing off usually presents as the stitches not being made at all. always raise presser foot when threading up too. if top tension looks like it is not working correctly consider getting a service and clean done, should be done at least biannually.

Bernette 90E

Our Bernette E90 timing was off due to a jam (design flaw I think)...Instructions on how we fixed it.

1. To correct timing, tip over machine and unscrew inspection plate.

2. Find the gear and unscrew the 2 grub screws so the gear is free from the shaft

3. Turn the main sewing machine handle to manually get the hook (pointed piece) of the housing (see arrow) to be directly behind the needle

4. Hold it the tightly, and turn the handle again, the needle should be able to go up and down while holding the hook in position.

5. When the needle is at it lowest and starting to move back up and the hook is directly behind tip the machine over and tighten the 2 grub screws on the gear underneath.

6. Replace inspection cover and you’re done
