Question about Bernina Artista 180
Embroidery leaves loops on topside of fabric. I have loosened the upper thread tension to 0 and does better however, I have used double stabilizer, same type thread in bobbin, slowed down motor. I recently wound thread in wheel and around gears. I cleaned it all out however, I feel that I may have fouled something up with the stitching at that time. Top thread seems to get caught in loop and breaks. Maybe the hook or timing. Your thoughts and ballpark figure of cost to get fixed. my machine is a Bernina Artista 200. I did not see this in the product box.
If it was an upper tension problem your loops would be beneith the fabric. Since the loops are on top this tells me the lower tension is too loose. There is a small screw on your bobbincase that you need to turn clockwise to adjust it. Do the adjustment little by little until its good. I would do it like a clock. First turn the screw to one o'clock. Still looping? Go to 2 o'clock etc.
If this doesn't help you, a clean opikl, and adjust by your local dealership could be anywhere from 50.00 to 90.00.
