To see of the bottom thread is too tide..just get the under bobbin out with the holder...and put the thread into the position into that location by that cover blade...and pull on the string ...and feel the tension ...It do not have to be too tide or to break the thread when you pull it ..
Too loose it up a little ...unscrew the side screw..that keeps the cover blade ...
After that insert it in place..and pull the thread out by rotating the wheel one time ...when both threads are in place ...pull by hand each one at the time ...and they have to feel like they have the same tension ...If any of them is too tide...for example the bottom on e...the stitch will end up with a tensioned bottom thread...and with little loops of the upper thread sticking out on the back side..It is very visible ...and in normal conditions you do not have to see the upper thread on the back side..or other way around..
My advise is to loose them both ...a little ...and when you have them into position and pull them by hand ..they have to feel even in tension ..and the stitch to not have visible upper thread on the back side..and the other way around ..bottom thread visible on the upper side of the stitch ..
so ..to loose them ...the upper thread has the wheel button o the arm ...and the bottom thread from that side screw that holds the blade under which the thread is put ...

Bernina 1008 thread tension is way too tight


Remember to raise the presser foot before you begin the upper threading process. May not be the problem, but you might try changing the needle and the type of thread you are using. Good luck with getting it fixed. Going back to the service provider is probably the best bet. You already paid for the service and they didn't fix the issue. Be sure to bring them a sample of how it is (mis)sewing.

I also pull the bobbin thread to the top of the fabric and gently hold both threads behind the presser foot until the machine completes the first stitch. That helps prevent the "thread nest" that is frequently created under your fabric. This is a procedure that is taught by Bernina instructors, and it does work.

My minghui is sawing just top and bottom is just mess can u help me???


Thanks for the question.
If your machine is not sewing on the bottom or making stacks of thread called (bird nesting) there are several simple fixes for this and some not so simple.
First you need to make sure that you are threading the bobbin into the holder correctly, Insure that you pull the end of the thread through the little slit on the side of the bobbin and that the thread is somewhat snug but not hard to pull.
Once you have done this replace the bobbin in the bobbin holder and thread the feed thread over the top from the spool or thread. making sure that you run it through the auto tensioner.
Set the auto thread tension to +1 to start, go ahead and thread the main feed through the bobbin feed so that you have both strings on the sewing deck.
Now with a piece of used material, pull both bobbin feed and Main thread behind the machine, insert your test material, drop the material tension foot onto material and start to sew a 1 inch spot.
After about one inch check to see if your machine is still nesting thread, if it is you need to add more tention to the main thread by moving the auto tensioner to +2. Now test sew again a short distance and recheck. If you still have a issue move the tension up until the nesting of string stops.
If you reach the stop. than it\'s likely that the bobbin holder needs to be adjusted.
The bobbin holder has two small screws in it generally that allow a very small screwdriver to adjust the bi metal pensioner on the bobbin holder. This is the area where you slide the string through the little slot in the bobbin holder.
You can tighten those screws until the string is harder to pull out of the bobbin holder. You may have to repeat this step several times until you get the tensions just right.
but make sure that you reset the main Thread tension to 0 before you start adjusting the bobbin tension.
If after all this work fails you may have to replace the bobbin holder to correct this issue.
There is one other fix that you can try before replacing the bobbin holder and that is to purchase more expensive thread. The reason behind this is that the more expensive thread is thicker and causes more friction in the bobbin holder..
I hope that this has helped you, I know what it\'s like not to have a working sewing machine.
Best of luck and thanks for using Fixya.com

Need to know how to properly thread , the problem is once we start to sew it moves a little then stops thread tangles on bobbin and breaks from top. we try different ways of threading


Check that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder. The bobbin tension adjustment is the small screw in the plate on the bobbin case that the thread passes under as it comes off the bobbin and goes out. This might not be exactly the same as yours but should give you an idea of the position.

Multiple threads are coming out of the bottom from the bobbin and stopping the needle.
