Question about Bernina Sewing Machines
At first the bulky bits of fabric (at seams) would jam, odd broken needle etc then suddenly not picking up bottom feed properly, plus needle jamming in top. Tension wheel seems to jam by itself even after releasing it.

SOURCE: i have an 1130 bernina
The 1130 does not have a consumer adjustable presser foot. Check to be sure you are using the correct presser foot .Some feet are slightly different in height which is how the pressure is regulated. If this is not your problem it will need to be seen by a technician.

This is a very common problem with really lightweight fabric and can often be cured (if doing straight stitching) by using a straight stitch needle plate and foot. The wider needle plate and foot openings on newer machines give the machine/thread a wider area to pull the fabric into the machine. By using a straight stitch plate/foot you remove the wide opening, eliminating the majority of the problem.
Also - try using a specially coated needle (Teflon or other non-stick finish). The thread feeds more smoothly through the needle and the needle more smoothly through the fabric, causing less drag into the needle plate opening.
Hope this helps. Don't hesitate to respond to this if you have further specific questions. We're always happy to help

It is possible the jam threw off the timing and this will need to be fixed by a sewing machine tech.
Try one more thing first. Lift the presser foot - this will open the tension control so the thread can properly seat into the control.
Re-thread the machine.
If this does not help, back to suggestion # 1.

Try pulling more thread out before you begin the seam - about 6". If you can hold the threads while you take the first few stitches that helps too.
