Have you ever lubricated it? Sewing machines must be periodically cleaned and lubricated or they will get stuck and freeze up

Cleaning and oiling (a drop or two of good quality sewing machine oil--not 3-in-1, WD-40, cooking oil or anything of the sort) will keep your machine happy. Be sure to oil the upper and lower mechanics. In your case, there are usually some oil holes near the handwheel. Be sure to give a drop or two. If it's still stuck, try directing a handheld hair blower set on hot into the interior mechanism, concentrating on the handwheel area. Frequently, that will loosen things up. In the meantime, if you are unable to wind your bobbins, look at picking up a stand-alone bobbin threader at the local fabric store. Last time I looked, they are around $30 and actually save wear and tear on your machine.

The top of the machine is not threaded correctly. First raise the presserfot then rethread the machine. Bottom looping is usually caused by a lack of top tension. There could allso be a bur on the hook.

Presumably neither of you has or knows how to adjust your bobbin tension so, I'm going to presume it's your hook. Make sure you are threading the machine coorectly then you'll need to remove your needle plate by removing the two screws, pull out your hook (this is the part your bobbin sits in) but make sure you note which way it sits inside your machine. Have a look at the plastic hook for any sharp edges or burs, you may need to replace your hook or try and gently sand (400grit) the plastic if possible. The key part of the hook is the small blunted point as this is what catched the loop of thread behind the needle. Please make sure that when you put your hook back in, that it is on the left side of that little guard sticking out on the lower right of your machine.

You can oil any two metal parts that move togeather or through each other. Do not oil bearings and do not oil gears. Do not use 3 in 1 oil or WD-40. Use regular sewing machine oil.
801's were made from 1979 - 1982. The way Bernina dated these on the machine is by the serial number. Your number would probably start with a 0 or a 1. 1970 is a 0, 1971 is 01, 1980 is 1, 1981 is 11, 1990 is 2, 1991 is 21 etc. etc.

Sewing machine wheel won't turn, motor whirrs also the wheel seems to be jammed, it cannot be turned either clockwise or anticlockwise


Make sure your bobbin winder is not engaged. Ten check to see if you have thread stuck in the bobbin race area. That's where I would look first.

I have a bernina Sport 801 and my bottom tension is off. I'm not sure how to fix this. Adjusting the tension setting doesn't seem to work.


On the bobbin casing is a screw to adjust bobbin tension when upper tension will not solve the problem. Check your manual for location of the screw.
