Question about Bernina Sewing Machines
I would like to know the size of the bobbin for the Bernina 1001 sewing machine model. I have a 21.1mm bobbin pack and I am not sure if it will fit?

If your bobbin area is making a noise, then do NOT sew with the machine until a reputable technician looks at it. You may have thrown something just a little off line - not enough to affect sewing NOW, but it could easily cause troubles down the line.
I suggest you call ahead and talk directly to the repair person - not to the sales person. Ask if you can bring in the machine while he/she is in the shop so they can listen while you run it.
You aren't trying to cheat the store out of the repair charge, just ensuring that the problem is diagnosed correctly.
You paid lots of money for this machine - it deserves good care.

The top of the machine is not threaded correctly. First raise the presserfot then rethread the machine. Bottom looping is usually caused by a lack of top tension. There could allso be a bur on the hook.

Your feed dogs sound like they are getting stuck,chec whether they are on the down position,and also make sure that you have cleaned any lint that builds up in the bobbin area, if all fails it will have to go into the technician,

Presumably neither of you has or knows how to adjust your bobbin tension so, I'm going to presume it's your hook. Make sure you are threading the machine coorectly then you'll need to remove your needle plate by removing the two screws, pull out your hook (this is the part your bobbin sits in) but make sure you note which way it sits inside your machine. Have a look at the plastic hook for any sharp edges or burs, you may need to replace your hook or try and gently sand (400grit) the plastic if possible. The key part of the hook is the small blunted point as this is what catched the loop of thread behind the needle. Please make sure that when you put your hook back in, that it is on the left side of that little guard sticking out on the lower right of your machine.

Perfect phrasing of the question, you have all the lingo/parts down pat!
First make sure your new needle is straight, then check to make sure it lines up in the center of the hole in the stitch plate.
There is basically a 1/2 sheet of papers (we use the fine waxy sticker backing paper as our guages don't fit well .1mm! ) distance between the hook and the needle.
Rotate your hook so that it is aligned with the needle in the center position, there should be 2mm between the top of the needle eye and the bottom edge of the hook.
