Tiptronic 2040 won't move forward to sew. Seems to be problem with bobbin? Thread "balls up" at bobbin.

Hello Day Fegely
Thread balling-up in the bobbin area indicates that the upper thread (the one going through the needle) is the one doing the "balling". Check that the upper thread is threaded through all the thread paths ... this specific issue seems to be due to the thread not threaded through the "take up lever" ... that is the 'thingy' that goes up and down really fast as you are sewing.

I have a Bernina Artista 180, new needle, great thread quality, new bobbin perfectly winded but the stitches are stille messing up. upper tension is on 4, normally this would work perfectly but now I see...

I like your detailed description it really helps. A simple check of the upper tension is to install a size 80 needle and with the presser foot down pull the thread diagonally backwards and to the right. The needle should flex about an 1/8 to 1/4 inch. This will confirm your upper tension is ok. On the lower tension a resaonable starting place is done with a scale at 21 grams. In place of this use a wooden clothes pin with 3 pennies super glued to it as a weight.
It may not be a tension problem as you can see in the video clip.

have you tried turning the bobbin the opposite way in the bobbin case?
it's also possible that the sewing machine may need some type of adjustment, it would be a good idea to have it check at a sewing machine repair shop.

My thread keeps jamiing when I start to sew. It is not the bobbin but the thread from the spool

Hold onto the threads (top and bobbin) and hand walk the first two or three stitches as you begin to sew.

That is about all I can determine without additional information.

For example: Is the needle driving the fabric down into the needle plate opening; is the thread jamming under the needle plate; is the thread catching at the spool?

Bobbin thread not feeding into the upper needle thread

completely unthread the machine....ensure the needle piston shaft is in the correct position and retread the upper. reinstall the bobbin and turn the machine by hand to engage the bobbin thread. Draw the bobbin thread through the stitch plate and with the needle thread, allow to trail off the back. attempt to sew a piece of scap material.

please let me know what happens at this point.

I cannot get the needle to catch the bobbin thread

sounds like your keeping the upper thread too tight when you drop your needle down to catch the bobbin or the bobbin thread that you left hang out is too short, let me know if it works amy
