Question about Bernina Activa 130
I have a Bernina 1001 and I just recently serviced it. I am using the clear nylon thread for all my projects and sometimes my machine will break the thread and sometimes it will work fine for a while. When it breaks it, it seems to be pulling at the bottom somewhere because it breaks right at the needle. If I go really slow it wont break as much but you can hear the tension noise in the thread as it pulls the thread up through the fabric....it seems to be getting worse and the tension dial seems to do nothing.
The problem is that the nylon thread will actually cut into the race cover and create groove, it should be smooth. The only way to correct this is to replace this cover. I can not stress enough do NOT use nylon thread on your sewing machines, it will do permanent damage and cost you 100s of dollars in repairs.
I have 25 years experience working on these machines and have seen this happen time after time.
