SOURCE: Bernina 180 Bobbin case spinning

Its called the bobbin stopper. Pop off your needle plate by pressing on the marked corner. In the back on the left you will see a small allen screw which must have come loose. Position the bobbin stopper in place and tighten that screw. If it already is tight, loosen it and reposition the bobbin stopper in the notch and tighten it back up.
Good luck.

SOURCE: Machine not working after bobbin installation

Hi, it may be possible that you put the bobbin in the case upside down and its turning the wrong way. Flip it over and try it. When looking at the bobbin in the case from the back and you pull the thread, it should turn clockwise.
Hope this helped as anything else may take a tech to diagnose.

In checking I can either adjust the tenion screw and if that does not work, purchase a new bobbin case.

SOURCE: Bernina 180 Bobbin Case Housing Loose

The housing you are pointing out is the rotary hook asm. This is suppose to have a little clearance there, the clearance allows for the lower thread to come up. In order to make the machine run smoother in that area, is to put a drop of the benina only oil

SOURCE: I have a brother pe 770 and the bobbin will not

You need to sew the first stitch slowly. Lower the needle by hand and take up carefully. Pull the needle thread up and the bobbin thread should be caught in the formed loop and come with it. Pull them both to the back of the machine and sew.

Bobbin in 770 Bernina will not come out

Hmm, make sure you are using the correct bobbins for your machine. Some bobbins are very similar but different enough to be an issue. If it is the correct bobbin, then the thread has probably snagged or lodged against the bobbin.

How to adjust bobbin tension bernina 150

On the side of the bobbin case is a half moon shaped curved spring with a screw through it securing it to the bobbin case
take the small yellow or red screwdriver that came with your machine and turn the screw clock wise to tighten and counter clockwise to loosen. Correct tension is achieved by inserting a full bobbin of thread, into bobbin case, remove the half moon shaped shuttle from machine, put the bobbin case on to the shuttle, now hold just thread and with a youo motion shake the above and the shuttle and bobbin case should slide down the thread about 12 to 24 inches for correct tension

Bobbin case

I would recommend using an authentic bobbin case and bobbins for your Bernina. Your dealer will have them. Just be sure to tell them the model you have.

FWIW, you can remove the shuttle hook and bobbin case by turning the 2 little black levers at the bottom right and left in the bobbin area, Once you do that, the circular piece that holds the bobbin mechanism in place can drop down and the bobbin case and shuttle hook can be removed as one unit. You should probably do this frequently to brush out the lint and debris and to oil the "shelf" where the hook resides. Oiling the hook shelf should be done about every 8 hrs of sewing.

I have a faithful 730 Bernina and currently the bobbin thread keeps breaking. Please advise what may be causing this. Thanking you.

Bobbin thread breaks
1. There is a right way & wrong way to insert the bobbin in the case --when you insert the bobbin in if it doesn't stitch correctly turn the bobbin over see if that helps or bobbin case is not inserted correctly
2. Lint has collected in the bobbin holder
3. The bobbin is damaged & doesn't turn smoothly
4. Lower thread tension is two tight

My mother has a bernina 1008 and now that we have taken the bobbin casing out to clean it won't catch when threaded. Any ideas?

Are you threading the bobbin case correctly - the bobbin should rotate clockwise when pulling the thread out under the tension spring. Are you ensuring that the bobbin case is firmly clicked back into position when replacing it. Check your needle is OK. Did you remove the hook from the hook race when cleaning out - have you oiled the hook race ?

How do you oil a Bernina Activa 130? The manual doesn't say anything about it.

Remove needle, needleplate, presser foot and bobbin case. Now take a lint brush and clean under the feed dogs and hook area. take the bernina oiler(must be bernina oil only) now place a drop just below where the bobbin case clip on and one small drop under the feed dog area. replace items, sew out a test sample and away you go.

Using a bernina gold latch bobbin case on the Bernina 435 machine

There isn't a Bernina 435. If you are referring to the 430 than the gold latch bobbin case will not work in that machine. If you are talking about the Bernina 450 the gold latch will work in that machine, with or without the embroidery module.
