Bernina Funlock tension is all out. Please help!

I regularly clean and oil the machine and use it very often. Just can't seem to correct the tension to last.

Unless something has gone haywire with the tension controls:

Remove all the thread from the machine (never pull the thread up, always pull the thread down through the needles & loopers after cutting the thread near the spools).

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Give each thread an extra little tug when going through the tension disks.

Set the tensions at the midway point. (This is the factory default but may need to be tweaked for your machine because of wear and deviations.)

If you still cannot get consistent tension, then your machine may need service.

I have been given a Bernina funlock 007d and would like to be shown how to thread the machine, I live in Parklands Cape Town


Although not your model, the models do not change much. Just be sure to raise the presser foot when you thread the machine and thread each thread in the proper order (upper looper first, lower looper second with thread draped over the upper looper, then the needles).

My bernina 707 minimatic..isn't working!! My needle keeps getting seized an won't move up an down...Then when i try to sew it sews blanks....


Replace the needle.
Make sure the needle is inserted the right way. If the needle is installed the wrong direction the machine will get stuck.

Check and correct tension of the bobbin. (Guide attached)

Start the top tension at four and adjust as needed.

When threading do it with the pressure foot up so any snags can be felt. If there are snags they must be corrected. While threading, little tugs of the thread along the way will help. The snags can be felt this way.
