I have Bernia 180. The bottom thread is puckering. Top thread is perfect. I cannot find help in manual. Please help


Check that the bobbin is inserted turning the proper direction in the bobbin case and that the thread is threaded correctly through the tension control on the bobbin case.

Make sure the upper thread is threaded correctly. The factory standard upper tension setting is midway between high & lower number although this may need to be tweaked for your particular machine.

If the machine is still pulling the bobbin thread too tight, you can try tightening the upper thread tension. If it still isn't resolved, you may need to loosen the bobbin tension.

You might also want to check the presser foot pressure on your machine. That generally needs adjustment when changing from thicker to thinner fabric and vice versa.

I'm having trouble properly threading my Elna 1010. Could you please help? The bobbin thread keeps bunching up and breaking


bunching of thread under the material is an indication of insufficient tension of the needle thread
increase the needle tension until the threads meet at the center of the materialbeing sewn

The top thread is not taking up the bobbin thread Why?


This may be due to incorrect threading of the top thread or incorrect winding of the bobbin thread, or the bobbin may be inserted backward. It can also be due to a damaged needle.

Try a new needle first. A brand new one if at all possible.

If a new needle won't help, remove all thread, remove the bobbin, and clean all lint and dust out from around the bobbin. Rethread carefully, making sure all thread guides are used.

Maybe also try using a new bobbin of thread. Ensure it's facing the right way when you put into the bobbin case and that you have pulled several inches of thread from the bobbin case.

While threading my bobbin, the thread slipped under the bobbin seat and got stuck. I can't dislodge it, and my bobbin won't thread. How can I fix this?


can't figure out what you mean, what bobbin seat, do you mean on the bobbin case? maybe on the post where the bobbin case goes? I guess you just have to work on getting the thread off and start over.

I have a faithful 730 Bernina and currently the bobbin thread keeps breaking. Please advise what may be causing this. Thanking you.


Bobbin thread breaks
1. There is a right way & wrong way to insert the bobbin in the case --when you insert the bobbin in if it doesn't stitch correctly turn the bobbin over see if that helps or bobbin case is not inserted correctly
2. Lint has collected in the bobbin holder
3. The bobbin is damaged & doesn't turn smoothly
4. Lower thread tension is two tight

here's a free manual

The trouble is the tension with the top thread being straight. I have changed the needle, the thread, the bobbin, oiled the bobbin, cleaned the fuzz. etc.etc.


Is the top thread not pulling down into the fabric? If so I would check the bobbin thread. Is it threaded right? If so you should be able to set the bobbin tension buy holding the thread in you hand, the bobbin case should not fall, when you shake it it should drop a few inches. Thread bobbin in bobbincase. Hold it buy pigtail. Shake it and it should drop about a few inches. You did not say your model number, this will help me, help you . Thanks

My thread is bunching up under needle when sewing therfore it locks the machine up. i've tried re-threading several times and it's still doing it.help! please! after this i have to take bobbin & bobin...


Check the bobbin tension and that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder.

Bobbin thread is pulling to the top, using embroidery needle, bobbin thread and proper thread on the top. As far as I know the machine is set right. This might not be the right place to ask, but am...


Setting bobbin case tension:
Put wound bobbin in bobbin case. Thread it in case. Hold the thread and carefully let go of the case only holding bobbin thread. The case should NOT move. Quickly let your hand drop 2-3 inches to let the bobbin case free fall for 2-3 inches, the bobbin case should move slightly then stop. It moves because it let’s a little thread off the bobbin. It should then stop .5"- 2" of thread should release. If so, your bobbin case tension is right. If it’s right then begin to look at your top thread tension. Always Always start with a properly adjusted bobbin case, then adjust your top tension accordingly.

Don't go directly from the thread spool to the bobbin.
You have to go via the thread quide, (near the end of the head at left side) and under the small roller.

Pass your thread to the bobbin turn your thread 3 turns to the right, clockwise,
then pass the end of the thread, under the coming thread and give it another 3 turns to the right.
For better results, always remove old thread from bobbin before filling it up.
Push the thread winder lever to lock the bobbin.
Start winding slowly. If the thread is loading in the down position,
put your finger under the thread between the bobbin and the the thread quide, untill you see that the thread is feeding evenly.
