Take the needle out of the needle holder
remove the needle plate, be careful not to damage the screws
take the bobbin out and use a small brush or a can of computer air to clean dust, use a pair of tweezers to pull the thread of the bobbin area if needed

SOURCE: Bobbin Case

I'm having a similar problem today. I took out the bobbin case and when I went to put it back in, the whole system locks up. I've tired cleaning, changing needle taking the metal plate and piece that holds bobbin case out and put it all back in after cleaning. Nothing. My symptom is I can't get a complete stitch, the needle goes down, the whole deal acts like it will work and as soon as the arm of the bobbin case gets to 8 o' clock on the gears, It jams and won't hardly move. I cannot pull the bobbin case out easily after this. Perhaps there is someone out there that can help us!

SOURCE: while sewing the bobbin case moves, wheel locks up, needle locks

Im not sure if this will help but thought I would pass it along. My Pfaff 6122 tells me to check bobbin for thread unrolling clockwise before you place it back in the machine. I had mine turned to un roll counter clockwise, this is wrong, the bobbin will fall out when you pull on the thread while you are holding it in your hand. You may just keep putting it in backwards. Hope this works for you. J.R.

SOURCE: Machine not working after bobbin installation

Hi, it may be possible that you put the bobbin in the case upside down and its turning the wrong way. Flip it over and try it. When looking at the bobbin in the case from the back and you pull the thread, it should turn clockwise.
Hope this helped as anything else may take a tech to diagnose.

SOURCE: My bobbin case came out

I just had this same problem and although i could not find the answer online, I managed to fix it.

If you look at the bobbin case there are 3 different tabs sticking out.

First you need to have tab #1 under the main part of the machine, and #3 over top of the small twisted metal piece below the bottom fabric gripper.

The hard part is to get the second tab into the proper spot. I circled the piece that you need to move in red. If you move the little piece by pushing it with a flat screw driver, you can line up the bobbin case so that tab #2 is under the metal piece and the bobbin case will be properly set.

Don't give up! It wasn't easy to get it back but I did it, I'm sure you can too!

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

The machine will not turn the spindle to wind cotton onto the bobbin.


What model Bernina is it? Most operate on a simple system where a rubber wheel on the bobbin winder comes into contact with the handwheel (under the cover) ... the handwheel is disengaged so the needle has no drive.......

My Bernina Deco 340 does not pick the bobbin thread but keeps saying the top thread is broken


Check the needle timing. Go to bernina on the web and download the service manual for your model. The eye of the needle should be at the pick arm of the bobbin case Too early or late and it will miss the cotton.

Need bobbin case for bernina 850


I know where one is - I was using my machine a Bernina 850 when the cotton started to tangle I was so frustrated I threw the bobbin case in the canal and that is where it lies today. The canal is between Palmetto Crt and San Michelle Court Broadbeach Waters. It may be a little rusty now but you could always derust it. Good luck with your search

My Bernina 1090 keeps breeaking the bottom thread. It sews about 10 inches and breaks. I take out the bobbin and rethread and it sews a while but still breaks. I have had it in for service 3 times and...


Assuming your bobbin tension is not too high, make sure the bobbin case is clean on the inside - use a cotton bud to clean it out. Are you using good quality Bernina bobbins - if not you're on a hiding to nothing ! It is possible that the bobbin case is deformed, but most likely your service man has set up the tensions too high ... look for someone else !

Heat the wheel with a hair dryer to loosen. If this does not help, you will need to visit an authorized Bernina dealer.

Bernina 910 sewing machine extension table


Hi Phoebe,

What you have is the extension table for the 830 and the 830E Bernina models. What you need is part number 301 276 100. This table looks a little different as it has a small see-through window in the bobbin area and also, it has no clamp (it has push-in pins). Ebay or a site like SewItsForSale is your best bet. I doubt the dealer could get one but if they could, it'd be likely around $100.
