You would use sewing machine thread depending on what you are sewing. If you are embroidering, you'd probably want to use embroidery thread. If you are quilting, you would probably use cotton or quilting thread. If you are sewing garments, then you will probably want to use polyester or polyester-wrapped cotton thread.

Be sure you are using the correct needle corresponding with the thread and project. (You don't have to use Schmetz needles, but this is a great guide.) Also, change the needle often to avoid sewing problems.

Elna expressive 900 thread breaking (although not really) and bunching up on underside of fabric ESPECIALLY when doing embroidery. Why?


try using gutermann thread and needle according to your fabric thickness and tension dial must be 3-5 and bobbin thread hold the end of the thread and bounce to see how loose the thread is cos if it releases too easy you need to turn the screw on the casing just a little see how you go

Elna expressive 860. how do you change the spool tension? (my top thread started looking loose on my embroidery


Make sure that when you thread the machine, that the thread is always seated completely in the tension disks. Remove the thread and rethread from the beginning.

I have an 820. The needle threader is clean of lint but still does not work

Install a brand new needle. Verify that it is installed correctly and is facing straight forward. If it is still not threading properly, then something may be bent or out of place in the threader.

The bobbin assembly has a lot of tangled up thread and is jammed. How do I clear it?


Avoid attempting to run the motor if the machine is bound--it may damage the motor.

Remove the presser foot and, if you can, remove the needle. Then remove the needle plate, the bobbincase, and the hook. If you are unable to remove some of them, you may need to use a small pair of scissors to snip the threads and gently pull them out with needlenose pliers or tweezers.

Once you have the thread tangle removed, clean with a soft brush to remove all the lint and thread bits and place a drop of good quality sewing machine oil (preferably Bernina oil for your machine) on the bobbin race. Install a brand new needle (in case the old one was damaged).. RAISE the presser foot, remove all the thread, and rethread from the very beginning. (The raised presser foot releases the tension disks so the thread will seat properly.) Use good quality thread--avoid old or bargain bin thread (some Berninas object strenuously to Coats & Clark thread too). Some threads create heavy lint buildup in the tension disks and bobbin area in addition to hanging up in the needle and elsewhere. Also, some fabrics shed more (ie fleece), so be sure to clean often. Try to oil your machine as instructed in the owner's manual--every time you change a bobbin, after 8 hours of constant sewing, or every 6 months if not in regular use.

Remove needle & reinsert needle( flat side towards the back of machine)

2. The needle is damaged

replace with new needle

3. The wrong size needle is being used

Choose a needle to suit the thread & fabric

4. The foot not attached correctly

Bernina 820 Tension Error Message


You need to take your machine in for service. The 8 series machines have new upper tension parts that can be installed under manufacturer warranty and MAKE SURE your Bernina dealer is well trained on the 820 and 830 or they'll never get it adjusted right. The 8 series are just all around buggars when they're out of whack.
