Question about Bernina Activa 130
Sounds to me as though you're not pressing the hook retainer back into place properly, or that the spring retainer is not properly engaging with the metal 'pip' on the left-hand-side of the 'U'-shaped hook retainer. You should press the hook retainer back until there is a definite 'click' and you should see the spring clip on the left just move a little bit when it clicks. You definitely shouldn't be able to 'loosen the hook race cover' at all - if you can, the hook will be able to rattle-around in the hook race causing noise and (probably) inconsistent stitch formation. The other thing you mention is that you 'cleaned-out' the hook race, but you didn't mention oiling it. If your machine has got the lightweight hook/shuttle that is black plastic with a metal hook around the outside, Bernina claims these dont need oiling, however, I've found that a small drop of oil will improve the performance of these machines immensely (note a SMALL drop of oil !). If you have an all-metal hook, you most-definitely need to oil it after cleaning ... lack of oil is probably the biggest cause of noise in machines of this type.

Sounds like thread or lint caught in the shuttle race - clean race with a pin or fine screwdriver.
