However, if the lower looper was damaged, it's possible the machine was also knocked out of time that may very well require a professional to repair.

SOURCE: lower looper threader
check to make sure it is not wraping around the upper looper. just stitch without the material and you will see it. but then you must rethread the upper looper and the lower looper again in the right order. hope this helps

I was having this very same problem with my lower looper . I had been using the one needle stitching all afternoon and I was doing quite nice stitching. then I decided to put the right needle back in and do some overlock stitching and guess what I spent the next two hours fighting the looper problem. I had completely re-thread this machine at least 20 times now. I decided to take the needle out and re-insert it and re-thread it one more time (right lower looper- then upper looper- right needle- then left needle) was careful to pull all threads to the back and under the presser foot for about 6 inches.
Held on to the thread, lowered presser foot and did the chaining stitch. BINGO it didn't break, tried it with a piece of cloth and Perfect stitches. I have a Babylock BL402 and used tension settings left to right
4-3-3-3 and default settings for the rest.
Hope this helps someone someday.

Here are a few things to try.
* When you insert anew needle, make sure it’s positioned correctly. Usually with the flat side
away from the bobbin, but consult your manual. Make sure that it goes all the way into the holder, and that the screw is securely tightened.
If there doesn’t seem to be a problem with your needle, try the following:
* Check your pressure foot
Make sure it’s attached securely.
* Change your pressure foot
Your pressure foot may be bent, causing your needle to hit it.
* Don’t sew over pins
A needle that hits a pin can break. Always remove the pins from your fabric before they reach
* Don’t pull your fabric as you sew
You could be bending your needle back, causing it to hit your needle plate instead of going into
the hole. Just guide your fabric, letting it feed on its own.
* Check your needle plate
Make sure it's securely in position.
* Change your needle plate
If you’ve been using a straight stitch needle plate (a plate with a small hole, often used for
sewing fine, delicate fabrics), switch to a needle plate with a wider hole.
* Check the position of your needle
Sewing machines with zigzag capability allow you to adjust the position of your needle – right,
left, or center. If your needle is not positioned correctly, it may be hitting your needle plate or
I hope one of these solutions help you.

In the US, a sewing machine repair service can do the work - a Bernina tech would be better.
Service starts at about $100 plus any parts that have to be replaced.
If you go to the Bernina website, there should be a dealer locator option.

Here is a link to Singer,however it doesn't seem very helpful.I saw a couple of your problem under the FAQ section.On my wife's machine which was a Brother,you could adjust the bobbin tension by sliding a plate on the bobbin metal jacket/casing where the thread ends up coming out.The hole/slot size could be adjusted and required very little movement and may not have a wide range of motion.Play with it and see if you can get it to do that or look and see what you find.I do not really know how to describe it but I was always doing the maintenance on it and she showed me stuff like that.Here is the link.If you do not get anything out of either,just comment back to this post and I will get an auto link.Good luck!
