Bernina 440 qe is not stitching properly. It stitches a few stitches and locks up and will not move forward. Why is this happening?

I don't know a whole lot about sewing machines and coudnt tell you much without seeing it, but I had that problem and discovered that my needle was bent.

Needle locked in right position


Remove the needle holder using a tool suitable for it and remove the needle and fix it again in the correct position and continue the stitching in zig zag .

Thank You

The safety device has been activated

Turn the machine off. Check for a broken or bent needle or a bird's nest in the bobbin area. Sometimes when I try to put an extra heavy piece through the machine I' ll get that message. The most common reason for the error is a broken or bent needle.

Make sure the loopers underneath are not broken. Are the needles
put in correct? One is suppose to be down and little more than the other- if you have them the same length that is your problem-
check your book

Bobbin stuck

I'm guessing you're meaning the " bottom" or "seated" bobbin. Generally speaking, anytime a bobbin won't come up, it's because of a thread, broken part, button or some such other surprise. Could be a small cut-off that's just now gotten caught up or the thread from the bobbin is caught up in itself and the bobbin has "locked up." The other reasons could there an additional locking mechanism, like you might have for the fabric foot. Do you see anything that could be a broken part or needle blocking the way. Just take a look around in there w a light that is stronger and/or more flexible, wiggle a thin screwdriver or something...could be the bobbin "jumped it's track." Try rethreading everything and see if you can get a forward stitch AND a backward stitch. Don't force anything if you feel any resistance, could be simply that you stopped and cut (again, little thread) at just the wrong part of the stitch locking process. And when all else fails, go in from under the machine, this might be a chore if you have a more sealed up bottom plate, but perhaps you can pop it (the bobbin) out from that angle. Just be careful not to force anything into moving and if you have one of the newer models wherein that area has moving parts that are plastic, be especially careful. When you flip it over, you just might find the phone number for direct tech support for that unit. Good Luck and Happy Sewing!

I cant get the stitch to lock on the bottom stitch on my touch and sew 758,

I think the needle may be bent, try a new one. If, you do not have a manual you can buy one from for $15. it may not be a bad investment. Also, there is a toll free customer service number, 1-800-4singer. Good luck

Top thread locks bottom thread bunches and machine makes noise

start with a deep clean and oil. check tensions, top and bottom-stitch should "lock" inside the fabric. make sure you use same thread on bobbin as on the machine. Check needle for nicks or bent. Make thread is threaded correctly, passing through upper tension plate. check tension plate(upper) for rust or lint.

My machine

Hi there,

Step 1. Set the upper tension tighter by turning the dial slightly to the right, or looser by turning the dial slightly to the left. (Or by using the electronic control if the sewing machine has one.) This adjusts the tightness of the main thread.
Step 2. Set the lower tension slightly tighter or looser using the dial or electronic control. This adjusts the tightness of the bobbin thread.
Step 3. Cut a small scrap of fabric, preferably the same type you want to sew with.
Step 4. Sew a few test stitches on the scrap. Examine the stitches to see if they’re too tight or too loose. The stitches should lie flat against the fabric, without pulling the fabric or making loops that stick out.
Step 5. Repeat Step 1 to Step 4 again as needed.

Good Luck!!

REX blind hem how to lock the stitch

When I purchased my blindstitch machine, I was also told to kind of snap the fabric as you pulled it our of the machine. Like you, I found that to be a little risky. Sometimes I'd just unravel what I'd sewn. I have found the most dependable thing to do is: Before removing the fabric from the machine, snip the thread between the fingers of the looper as it approaches the needle. If the loop is broken, the chain stitch will not pull out. If you cut the loop as it approaches the needle, you will get a bit longer tail so the needle doesn't come unthreaded on the next run. If you find you need a bit longer thread tail, you can pull a bit on that loop before cutting. As long as the needle has passed through the loop on the previous stitch, you'll be fine.
