Question about Bernina Artista 180
Posted by Anonymous on
What I am getting from your question is that you have thread caught in the upper tension assembly? If this is the case I would remove the top plastic lid on the machine. It's easy to remove as it is only held on by 2 torx head screws. Also remove the plastic end cap on the machine. Just one torx head screw holds on the end cap cover. Now with these two covers removed you can see the entire upper thread path and pull out or remove the thread from where it is caught. On a 180 it usually gets cought at the end of the take up arm where the thread passes through. Use some good tweezers to remove any cought thread. Also turn the hand wheel and inspect the moving parts for any thread that has broken off and gotten wrapped up in the moving parts.

If it was an upper tension problem your loops would be beneith the fabric. Since the loops are on top this tells me the lower tension is too loose. There is a small screw on your bobbincase that you need to turn clockwise to adjust it. Do the adjustment little by little until its good. I would do it like a clock. First turn the screw to one o'clock. Still looping? Go to 2 o'clock etc.
If this doesn't help you, a clean opikl, and adjust by your local dealership could be anywhere from 50.00 to 90.00.
