Question about Bernina Bernette Deco 600

2 Answers

Just got my used Bernina deco 650 from the shop. Tension off

Just got my used Bernina deco 650 from the shop. It was making loud noise after stitch and showing that the needle was bent. Company said I needed new motor which was not the case. Technician found thread cutter binding so he reinstalled rotary hook and thread cutter. Now tension seems off. Bobbin thread is running out quickly and shows through embroidery. Does the top tension number need to be higher or lower? Or is it related to the thread cutter again?

The tensions are not calibrated properly. To get by, or if you do not want to take it back to the shop, just lower the upper tension a little at a time until it looks ok.

Sews 1/4" and then sews in place


1) remove upper and bottom threads. Try sew without threads.
Is fabric transported corectly?

NO:
- Drop feed dog button is OFF
- Dust under stitch plate
- Transporter malfunction (must be taken for a service to the BERNINA dealer)

YES:
- Upper or bottom thread jammed
- The upper thread tension is too tight.
- Wrong needle used (probably small ...)

Fix timing on the benina deco 650


Bring it to a Brother sewing machine repair shop, Brother made that machine, and sold to to Bernina, the servicing and especially the parts will be much cheaper at Brother. Bernina simply doubles the Brother price and sells it to you.

I have a deco 600...the top thread is pulling thru to the bottom and making a mess..it seems as if the bobbin thread s not picking up. Could this be a timing issue? Can I fix this myself


sounds more like top tension device is faulting, can you clean between the tension discs? if you can get to them turn tension to zero and floss between discs with selvage edge of clean cotton fabric scrap. thread dye particles and lint will build up in there. timing off usually presents as the stitches not being made at all. always raise presser foot when threading up too. if top tension looks like it is not working correctly consider getting a service and clean done, should be done at least biannually.

Bernina Deco 650. won't stitch


You need to take the machine to a Bernina dealer for service. It may just need the timing adjusted, or there could be something else that needs to be done.

I have s Bernina deco 650 embrodiery machine and the stitches won't catch. I had this machine serviced before I moved from SD to an eastern state. It was sewing fine and just started making a noise like it...


Your timing is out in the bobbin area this will have to be reset, maybe the last time that you used it you had a cotton jam, and it was pulled out of alignment.

Bernina Bernette 600 Deco embroidery machine


It could be that there is a loose piece of thread, or some fluff which is obstructing the tension gauge. Try blowing around the theading area (or even run the hoover pipe near it to see if you can **** it out). I cleared mine by folding a piece of non fluffy material and rubbing gently between the tension dial and machine.

Good luck
