Sounds like one of your thread sensors is misaligned, covered in lint or broken, get a can of canned air and clean out your bobbin case area and you top tension area to ensure no lint/thread is blocking the sensors. If you still are having problems, find your local independent sewing store in your town that gives free estimates and see what they say.

-Hope that helps,
Chris

Sewing Machine & Serger Problems


If you are experiencing stitching problems with your sewing machine and serger, try raising the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread. This releases the thread tensioner while threading, but when you lower the presser foot, the tensioner is activated to control the thread's tension.

Never remove the upper thread by grabbing the spool and pulling the thread tail backwards through the needle eye, thread guides, and tensioner. To remove the upper thread, clip the thread below the spool, raise the presser foot, then gently grab the thread tail by the needle's eye and pull the remaining thread through.

Thread broken indicator


It may be that the upper thread sensor flag has come off the check spring at the bottom of the takeup arm cover - unfortunately this is not user-fixable and needs Bernina agent action. This happens frequently with people who, when finishing with a spool of thread, pull the thread backwards out of the machine - you should never do this. You can turn the sensor off by going into the menu that has an arrow with a box around it, but this is only a temporary fix and you should have the machine looked at.

Bernina 820 Tension Error Message


You need to take your machine in for service. The 8 series machines have new upper tension parts that can be installed under manufacturer warranty and MAKE SURE your Bernina dealer is well trained on the 820 and 830 or they'll never get it adjusted right. The 8 series are just all around buggars when they're out of whack.

My Husqvarna diamond top thread keeps breaking while doing loop embroidery. It sews a couple of stitches and then you can hear when the thread breaks. Ive tried changing the needle and bobbin, and cleaning...


Hello

Primary causes of upper thread breakage:


-- misthreading: pull all the thread off and thread again, using the manual, step by step. Read each step aloud before you do it. (sounds dumb, but helps.) (And make sure you thread the takeup lever!)

-- thread has wrapped itself around a thread guide or spool pin from one of the breaks. Take the spool off the machine before rethreading.

-- bad or damaged needle. Replace with the right size for the fabric, turned correctly (backwards needles skip stitches)

-- dirty machine, especially in the bobbin case area: review cleaning instructions and do it, using brush and vacuum only

-- bad/cheap thread: should not be slubby or break easy. Try another spool.

-- top thread tension too tight. 4 is normal for most fabrics, most stitches.

Tips;

1) do a light cleaning (brush and vacuum) every day you sit down to sew.

2) replace the needle if you hear it hit metal, if you've got a really bad thread jam, if you see it deflect as you sew (for instance, sewing over the side seam on jeans when hemming). Replace every 3-8 hours of actual stitching time anyhow.

3) buy good quality thread

4) when your machine isn't sewing right, stop; take all the thread off of/out of the machine (bobbin out of bobbin case, spool off spool pin) and give it a quick cleaning. Rethread from scratch, carefully. If that doesn't fix it, do it again, then replace needle and rethread one more time, manual in hand (yah, even if you've threaded it 8 million times before). #4 is curative about 98% of the time. The other 2% often requires professional attention.

The bottom thread on my Bernina 140 jams


Try pulling more thread out before you begin the seam - about 6". If you can hold the threads while you take the first few stitches that helps too.

Bobbon thread is too losse /thread breaks no


Clean out the bobbin area.

Thread the machine with the presser foot up. This opens the tension so the thread can enter. Threading with the foot down closes the tension and the thread cannot enter as it should. When you sew, the top thread is loose and cannot properly connect with the bobbin thread to form a tight stitch. The stitching does not hold and pulls right out.

Thread breakage - top thread? Check the thread spool to be sure there aren't any nicks to catch the thread.

When the thread breaks, check the spool pin to see if the thread is unwinding too fast and wrapping around the pin. Thread nets can help stop this. You can find them at sewing machine dealers.

Try threading the machine with the presser foot up and see if this helps.

When the foot is down during the threading, the thread does not enter the tension control as it should, then when you start to sew, the upper thread has no tension and does not form a stitch with the bobbin thread.

I have a Bernina 530 Record and i'm trying to but


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.
