Sounds like the computer is having trouble responding to the commands it's given, may need to be serviced.

SOURCE: Bernina Activa 131: buttonhole problem

There are TWO buttons on the machine that have the little u-turn on them. Look for the other one. That is the one that makes the second half of the buttonhole. Look in the owner's manual, it may tell you where it is on your machine. I spent a long time swearing at my machine before I figured out that the reverse is not the only button with the u-turn arrow. The manual is not clear on this. Why they use the same symbol twice is beyond me. Mine is on the front of the machine, down by the needle. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: While embroidering my machine continually stops

It's possible that the upper thread sensor has become disconnected from the check spring in the takeup mechanism. This also results in poor or inconsistent thread formation and sometimes a bit of a ticking noise on the upward stroke of the takeup arm. It's also possible that the optical sensor that is attached to the back of the front panel, just above the reversing button, has become obstructed by fluff. In either case it's best to have it checked-out by a Bernina service agent although it is just-about possible to re-position the sensor flag on the check spring without removing the front panel, if this is the problem. If you remove the head cover (T20 screw) and look at the bottom of the metal curved takeup arm cover, you should see what appears to be a large flat-bladed screw with a coil spring around it - this is the check spring. If you follow the end of the spring, you'll see it emerges into the bottom of the takeup arm cover and forms a small loop. If you thread-up the machine as far as the takeup arm and gently pull upwards on both ends of the thread, you'll see that this pulls the spring upwards too. Whilst looking at this, look carefully at the section of the spring between the main coil and the thread loop - it should run through a groove in a small black plastic part - if not, the check spring has come off the sensor flag. This often happens if you pull the upper thread 'backwards' through the machine after finishing sewing, or when changing the upper thread. You should always cut the thread where it comes off the spool and pull the waste through the machine in the normal direction. If you can see the end of the sensor flag, it may be possible to reposition the check spring through the groove, but its not easy and really needs to be done with the front panel off, which is a technicians job and not for the amateur. Dont forget that you can disable the upper thread sensor through the set-up menu, but this wont necessarily overcome problems with stitch formation.

Embroidery stitches to far apart


1. To make changes on a computer there is a method to increase or decrease the size of the embroidery (usually two buttons pushed simultaneously). This will resize the embroidery and compute a new number of stitches. If you have resized it in the past without utilizing this feature the number of stitches will be wrong and will make an embroidery that has problems.
2. The embroidery program that you are using may have a problem. This can be checked by trying other embroidery programs.

Will not sew continuestly when im embrodering when i press the reverse button


It is completely normal for a Bernina 180 and other Bernina models to stitch just a few stitches and stop after first pushing the reversing button. The reason for this is so you can cut off the extra piece of top thread so it does not get caught up in the embroidery design. After you cut off that extra piece of thread, press the reversing button (hold it in till the machine starts) then it will continue with the design. Assuming you do not have a problem (a message would come up on the screen) or you are out of bobbin thread, the machine will continue to embroider till either the design is finished or it stops because you need to change the upper thread to the next color. Each time you start to embroider it will stitch about 3 or so stitched and stop. Cut off the extra thread and press the reversing button again to continue.
If this is not the problem you are having then you need to describe your problem better, in more detail.
This should help! Bill

Why is my bobbin thread is showing while embroidering


Your tension on top can be loosened. If this causes your stitch to be too loose then tighten your bobbin tension. Just think of the top and bottom tensions as a tug of war. They must be even to get the stitch in the middle of the material.

How do you start embroidering a design where the thread breaks on a Bernina Artista 180 sewing/embroidery machine?


Most machines have a stitch counter, stitch forward and step back features. Check your manual and embroidery machine's screens for this.

IN case you have misplaced your manual I found this one for you. It's big so allow time to download.

WHAT IS THE BEST FORMAT FOR IMPORTING EBROIDERY DESIGNS


Each kind of embroidery machine will import differently; Bernina uses an ART format and only that. Many collections (designs) are multi-formatted with ART, PES, HUS, ***, etc. Your machine will embroider best with a specific format - your dealer should be able to tell you which one to use. If that is not possible, pick an easy/small number of stitches design and try several formats to see which one stitches out best.

I was embroidering with my machine and then the needle starting stitching in slow motion and then stop and I got an error saying the safety device had been activated. I closed that window and now it is...


Unfortunately you are completely dictated to by the computerized machine, you can only try and do what it says, if you have problems with any computerized machine the only solution is to get it to a Brother dealer or find their website for advice.

The start switch is the Led indicator buton. You will see it on page 12 of your manual. It is on the right of the needle bottom button.
