Bernina Aurora 430

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,
Joyce

    I have the same exact problem with my aurora 440. Of course it happens on a Friday night when I need something for tomorrow! Have you been able to fix the problem?

    I have the same problem. I was using the embroidery module turned the machine off, came back later to pick up where I left off. I received the thread breakage alarm...but no thread breakage. I have called several dealers asking for help. I was told to check the spring arm and did that. It will sew without the alarm but not embroider without alarming. It will stitch properly. It is just very time consuming and frustrating. Can anyone help?

    Have the same problem, my tech told me to look for thread or fuss in the tention disc. It would work for one or two colors then start again. I will be taking my machine in with an example this week. Will post if smothing is found.

    I have exactly the same problem with my Aurora 430. I am quite sure that threading has been done correctly. Anyone a better solution?

    I've got this same problem and its driving me nuts. Has anyone managed to solve it? I've practically dismantled the machine but to no avail. The bloody thing still keeps stopping

  • Sistie1 Nov 19, 2008

    I posted the original message about this problem and finally figured it out on my own--it is the threading that causes it, and not the bobbin thread--at least in my case. If you refer to the diagram on page 9 in the manual, the problem occurs at Step B. When you bring the thread alongside the needle thread take-up cover and down under it, pull the thread up firmly before going up and over to Step C. You will feel the thread engage inside the bottom of the cover. If you don't feel that, your machine is not threaded correctly and you will get that annoying alarm every few stitches. Hope this helps someone!

    Has anybody found a solution to the broken thread issue.

  • Amie Richards Feb 15, 2013

    Here it is three years after these posts and I'm having this same problem every 45 stitches. It's not the way it's threaded because I've re-threaded with differeent spools, different bobbins, cleaned out the bobbin area, checked inside the thread area, the whole nine yards. Has anyone found a better answer than that it's the way it's threaded? Seems like a computer problem more than a manual problem?

  • Amie Richards Feb 15, 2013

    Here it is three years later and I'm having the same problem. Since it's every 45 stitches, its seems more like a computer problem. I've changed the thread, the bobbin, cleaned everything, etc. It doesn't seem to be a threading issu. Any find a solution yet?

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.

Bernina 440QE, when I'm using the embroidery module, the machine stitches for 36 stitches then says there is a thread break when there is not, how do I resolve this issue.


there could be a sensor problem, if the machine continues to have the problem then having the machine checked would be a good idea

When stitching the design the upper thread keeps


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.

Aurora 430 Bernina


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.

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.

430 will not recognize wembroidery unit.


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.
