I have a fairly new Bernina 430 machine with embroidery module. While working on an embroidery project, I had a thread break. Fixed it and rethreaded the machine. Now the machine will complete 45 stitches and then I hear the "broken thread" alarm again and it stops. There's no thread break, though. Does this every 45 stitches. I called the dealer and she said to check a spring on the take-up arm. I did that, but it didn't help. Any ideas? Thanks,
I figured out the solution for this issue. It all has to do with the threading. And I mean literally follow the instructions word for word. Most importantly is the Bobbin thread. make sure to thread the bobbin through the case eyelet.

#26 is an embroidery foot. Why are you using an embroidery foot for free motion quilting? A #24 free motion embroidery foot will work but not the #26. Try using a darning foot that is just a smidgen shorter so there is space between it and the needleplate for you to freely move the fabric. (Adding a Supreme Slider sheet to the work surface of your machine helps make the fabric glide much smoother.) A standard presser foot is made to press the fabric against the feed dogs so the feed dogs will move the fabric. When free motion quilting, you would drop the feed dogs and move the material with your hands.
Depends which model Bernina you have (new or old style presser feet), which will work on your machine. There are also many generic darning/FMQ feet available that will work on your machine.
The tension is not properly set for embroidery, try to rethread totally new. Sometimes it is also caused by broken thread inside the machine, you can open it with the supplied L-shaped tool on the left side of the machine where the lamp is located and than take it out with a tweezer.
Hi, possibly your feedogs are dropped and in the darning position and/or its thinking you want to embroider and there is NO hoop attached or entire embroidery unit plugged in. Check your feedog button below the handwheel on the bottom.
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.
I am the person who posted the solution about too much stabilizer. Unfortunately that did not solve the problem in the long term. I spoke with the Bernina dealer and found out that the sewing machine needed to be recalibrated. I found out how to do this from my user manual and the problem appears to be solved for now... hope that works for you
I had the same problem. It maybe you have some bits of thread caught inbetween the metal plates . That's what my problem was . Try cleaning carefully between the plates with something flat carefull not to scratch them.
