The bobbin thread does not thread the needle. A sewing machine uses two threads to form stitches--one thread comes from the spool of thread on top and ends up threading the needle's eye; the second thread comes from the bobbin and threads through the bobbin case. If you thread the needle and have the bobbin in place, then when the handwheel rotates, the needle will go down through the needle plate and connect with the bobbin thread. The two threads become entwined which forms the stitch.

You would be best to download an instruction manual for your machine as it explains clearly, with diagrams how to thread and insert the bobbin. You probably wont find the 530 manual however download a copy for Bernina 530-2 or 532-2 as they are almost identical to the 530.

My Bernina 530 is not stitching as nicely as it has been even with the walking foot. Had 3 months and have had super results until today. New needle, rethreaded, re did bobbin, cleaned all lint away


It is the older mechanical Bernina 530 Record or the newer computerized Bernina 530?

The mechanical model may need a thorough clean and oil.

Without knowing exactly what symptoms the machine is exhibiting, we are limited in our ability to assist.

The needle or the bottom bobin holder on my bernina is mis-aligned or the timing is off so that the needle hits the rotating bobin holder every cycle. Is there a way to adjust this.


There is a way to adjust this though it is quite labor intensive and takes some specialized tools. My first recommendation would be to change the needle. The timing on BERNINA machines is far less likely to be off than on most other modern machines. The chances are far greater that your needle may be bent and is hitting the hook.

A blunt needle can also cause this. Try pulling a button thread or any slightly thicker thread through all the tension springs, perhaps you have a blockage somewhere.

Bottom thread not picking up for 4500 series,,,tried new needle.new bobin,new thread,,pliz help


The most common reason the bottom thread won't pick up is because the needle is inserted wrong. Check that the needle is inserted with the flat side of the needle shank is facing away from you.

change the needle, if bent it may skip, use top thread while holding to pull thru, turn bobin around to turn in oposite dirrection, bobins usually turn in 1 correct dirrection

Model 8280. The thread on the bottom keeps bunching up. It is a horrible mass of thread. Then, it stops moving. Can you help me?


I had the same problem and I tried everything including removing the bobin case, cleaning out lint, changing the needle, adjusting the tension but it did not work. Then I finally tried reloading the bobin thread, making sure to load the bobin according the manual directions....and the problem was solved...no more tangles... just a nice even stitch...yeah!
