If it is a Bernina 800DL overlocker, the user manual is available for download at the bernina.com web site. Select "Support" and scroll down to Search Support Info for Bernina models. Once you download, you can enlarge the pictures on your computer screen as sometimes the photos are difficult to see in the book. Be sure to thread in the order as instructed. Guaranteed, your machine will not work if you do not thread in the proper order.
1. UPPER LOOPER FIRST
2. LOWER LOOPER SECOND, and the THREAD TAIL MUST CROSS OVER THE UPPER LOOPER AT THE LAST STEP.
3. Then thread the needles.
If any of threads are not fully seated in the tension disks, you will have issues.

The machine has a diagram (thread route) inside the front cover if you can follow the coloured dots through the thread guides you do not need a manual
I reccommend threading the upper looper first from thread stand (second thread on right) up to telescoping thread guide down to the appropriate guide (see coloured chart inside the front cover)
follow the coloured dots through the thread guides to the upper looper. Likewise with lower looper.
On the lower looper there is a small white catch, when the machine is advanced by turning the hand wheel so that the looper is furthest to right , that catch can be pulled down and the thread directed into the appropriate guide then it should be retracted upward thus allowing the lower looper thread to move to the left. Then complete the threading through the hole in the end of the lower looper.
Threading the needles is fairly straight forward making sure the needles,are in all the way up so that the left needle is higher than right needle once completed rotate hand wheel so that needles are in upper position, gently pull all the threads under the presser foot and off to left side.
As a rule of thumb the looper tensions should be set at a slightly lower number than the needles or the needle tensions at a slightly higher number

How do you thread the bernina 1230


You can probably use the manual for the 1260. Sewing machines basically thread alike from one model to the next.

One thing to remember: ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread! This will help prevent those dreaded thread nests under the fabric.

The bobbin assembly has a lot of tangled up thread and is jammed. How do I clear it?


Avoid attempting to run the motor if the machine is bound--it may damage the motor.

Remove the presser foot and, if you can, remove the needle. Then remove the needle plate, the bobbincase, and the hook. If you are unable to remove some of them, you may need to use a small pair of scissors to snip the threads and gently pull them out with needlenose pliers or tweezers.

Once you have the thread tangle removed, clean with a soft brush to remove all the lint and thread bits and place a drop of good quality sewing machine oil (preferably Bernina oil for your machine) on the bobbin race. Install a brand new needle (in case the old one was damaged).. RAISE the presser foot, remove all the thread, and rethread from the very beginning. (The raised presser foot releases the tension disks so the thread will seat properly.) Use good quality thread--avoid old or bargain bin thread (some Berninas object strenuously to Coats & Clark thread too). Some threads create heavy lint buildup in the tension disks and bobbin area in addition to hanging up in the needle and elsewhere. Also, some fabrics shed more (ie fleece), so be sure to clean often. Try to oil your machine as instructed in the owner's manual--every time you change a bobbin, after 8 hours of constant sewing, or every 6 months if not in regular use.

How do I thread the Bernina Overlocker


Depends on your serger model. Best idea is consult the owner's manual. Some manuals are available for download on Bernina's web site (look under Support). Be sure to thread in the order specified in the manual. Usually the upper looper is first, then the lower looper second, then the needles. (Hint: The lower looper thread ALWAYS lays over the top of the upper looper thread in the final looper threading step.)

You can also download a serger workbook too.

How to insert bobbin in a bernette 680 sewing machine?


Try going to this link and download the manual for either the Bernette 410 or 715 and look at the directions for threading and inserting the bobbin:
http://www.bernina.com/en-US/Support-US/Out-of-Print-Manuals/bernette-manuals/Bernette-Sewing-Machines

Bernina may not have a manual for your particular model, but these models may be close enough that you can still use the directions for your machine.

Thread for a rolled hem on the bernina 800d


HI
I would reccommend regular serger thread for the right needle (left needle is removed) and the lower looper. and use wooly nylon in the upper looper
The tensions on the needle should remain at 5-6 upper looper thread tension should be about 3-4
and the lower looper tension at about 8
contact me at Sewaway@shaw.ca if you have further quetions

Machine is threaded but the needle will not pick up the bobbin thread. How do I fix on my bernina 65 machine?


Make sure the needle is not bent and is threaded from the front to the back.

The needle should be installed with the flat side of the needle shaft facing the back of the sewing machine.

Lower & raise the threaded needle, holding onto the end of the thread.

Then begin to sew.

If this does not help, then it may be the timing needs to be adjusted and this has to be done by a Bernina repair tech.

Bernette 800D seized up


Please don't use WD40 on your sewing machine, WD40 is an alcohol based cleaner and will do the opposite of lubricate. Take your machine to a certified Bernina Repair shop, they will have a look at the timing and lubricate all of your gears. Lubricant will dry out over time, grease turns to putty and oils turn to varnish after several years of non-service. Lint is attracted to moisture, moisture being those key areas of any machine. Lint acts like an oil wick and will draw out your lubricant from key areas. It then begins to attract dust and other nasty things over the years to become grit. Your motor begins to burn out due to stress trying to move all of these clocked gears, cams and shafts. Take your machine in!
