Remove the needle, run at speed for 5 seconds. Put the needle back in. Make sure it is the right way round regarding the flat part and tighten the screw well. Also check the lower bobbin and carrier are in correctly.

My needle is not movin up or down..switched to zig zag and it moved left and right but no up and down..Im lost without it..whats wrong and how do i fix it? Bernina 1090 s


Have you oiled your Bernina recently/regularly? Consult your owner's manual under the Maintenance section. Sounds like the old oil may have dried and is prohibiting the needle bar from moving. Use good quality (ie Bernina) oil, not 3-in-1, WD-40, cooking oil, or the sewing machine oil from your grandmother's sewing basket). To help free it up, direct heated air from a handheld hairdryer into the interior mechanism of the machine, concentrating on the needle bar area.

Needle won't go up and Down


Is this a Bernina machine with the needle stuck in the up position? If so, is the model something like a 930 or 1030 or similar?

I'll have a go at an answer but unless you give more information than this, it's not worth attempting.

Bernina sewing machine


Hook don't catch thread

Possible reasons:
  • bent needle
  • needle/thread combination is not correct. When sewing, the thread should travel smoothly down the long groove on the front of the needle. (see user manual, chapter "Threads and needles")
  • stitch plate damaged
  • wrong hook timing (sewing machine needs to be taken to a BERNINA dealer for servicing)

How do I keep the walking foot from unscrewing the needle holder on my bernina record 730


I don't know about bernina but I will take a shot at your problem. Make sure your needle is inserted in the needle arm with the flat part of the needle facing away from you. After it is for sure inserted in the crack in the arm tighten the needle down firmly. If the needle is backwards it will continue to come out. Your machine might sew but it will possibly make noise when the needle is in the down position. The problem isn't the walking foot.

If your hand wheel would have a lock cam/washer probably you have fixed it upside down.

Bernina Artista 640 - While embroidering, the sewing needle hit a pin and broke. Now that I have replaced the needle, the alignment is off. The needle point comes down onto the embroidery presser foot.


This will probably need to be handled by a professional. With this particular Bernina, you might be able to adjust the needle position so that it is slightly off center and will not hit the presser foot. That would be a temporary fix, however. If you want to be able to thoroughly enjoy your sewing time, you will be happier if you take it to a certified Bernina repair site and let them adjust the needle position.

Machine is threaded but the needle will not pick up the bobbin thread. How do I fix on my bernina 65 machine?


Make sure the needle is not bent and is threaded from the front to the back.

The needle should be installed with the flat side of the needle shaft facing the back of the sewing machine.

Lower & raise the threaded needle, holding onto the end of the thread.

Then begin to sew.

If this does not help, then it may be the timing needs to be adjusted and this has to be done by a Bernina repair tech.

The needle thread on my bernina minimatic keeps breaking.


There is special thread for denim/jeans. It usually comes in shades of brown. It's a little heavier and might help with the breakage. You might also want to try a little less tension. I assume you already have a Schmetz denim needle?
