SOURCE: Thread tension problem when sewing on heavy fabrics

Sometimes when I need to use heavy thread for top stitching to reinforce a seam that has come undone, I will use the heavy thread on the top and regular thread on the bottom. I haven't tried it the other way around for hemming but I would think it would work. I do not currently have a Bernina.

Your timing is out in the bobbin area this will have to be reset, maybe the last time that you used it you had a cotton jam, and it was pulled out of alignment.

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,

Will not sew continuestly when im embrodering when i press the reverse button


It is completely normal for a Bernina 180 and other Bernina models to stitch just a few stitches and stop after first pushing the reversing button. The reason for this is so you can cut off the extra piece of top thread so it does not get caught up in the embroidery design. After you cut off that extra piece of thread, press the reversing button (hold it in till the machine starts) then it will continue with the design. Assuming you do not have a problem (a message would come up on the screen) or you are out of bobbin thread, the machine will continue to embroider till either the design is finished or it stops because you need to change the upper thread to the next color. Each time you start to embroider it will stitch about 3 or so stitched and stop. Cut off the extra thread and press the reversing button again to continue.
If this is not the problem you are having then you need to describe your problem better, in more detail.
This should help! Bill

How do I make buttonholes on the Bernina 180?


I don't know about your Bernina but mine you have to manually set the button hole size every time you do a new button hole size. Practice on a scrap bit of fabric. I think you push the buttonhole button - sew which I think does an end, push the button again, sew for the distance forward you need and push the button again, and sew the other end and push the button again and it should go back to the beginning. That's off the top of my head, I could be wrong but try it on scrap. I think it might then have set the size until you change stitch types and it should continue to do the same amount of forward and back stitches with each button press to tell it to go forward, end, back, end etc. But practice! My machine has trouble feeding the fabric evenly.

I have a Bernina 180 sewing machine that the needle is not coming down?


This might be a bit hard to explain without showing you a video or photos, but here goes.
The 180 and many other Berninas do what is called a basting stitch. When a machine is doing this stitch the needle stops going up and down for a very short time this producing a long basting stitch. There is a mechanism on the needle shaft that has a black short lever on it. When the basting selanoid pushes in on this lever the needle stays in the up position. Simply stated this lever mechanism can stick if it is not oiled and your needle will stay in the up position and not move when the machine is running. Sometimes just pulling the needle shaft down, then letting it go so it snaps back up into place will lock the basting ever back in place. Once you get the needle shaft to lock back in everything will work again.
I can guarantee you that this is your problem if the machine runs but the needle stays in the upper position. I pose helpful Bernina videos on YouTube under the name JoeKind1958. It would be so much easier to show you how to oil the basting assembly on your machine. Contact me through that site and I can make a video showing you what to do.

How to I determine the hours on my bernina 180 and on the embroidery module?


With the machine off, hold down the 'CLR' button and turn on the machine still holding down the button. On the lower right hand side of the screen that will appear is a clock symbol, next to it is the number of hours on the machine since the last service.
