They have threading instructions for several Europro models that may be similar enough to guide you, I am not familiar with this model as it was never released in Australia.

If you don't have the manual to refer to, your friendly local sewing shop may happily spend 5 mins showing you, of course their inclination will be enhanced if you are a regular customer !

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.

Threading a bernina


Depends on the model, for detail but basically: Ensure the takeup arm / needle is at the top of its motion - with electronic models this is easiest done just by 'blipping' the foot controller and the needle will automatically return to top. Put your spool of thread on the spool pin. On older models with the vertical spool pins ALWAYS use a felt pad underneath to prevent the spool spinning when the thread is drawn off. On later models with a horizontal spool pin, hold the spool in place with the correct size retainer, with the larger diameter facing away from the spool. Make sure the foot is up (this is important). Draw thread off the spool and route it through the pre-tensioner on the back of the machine, then through the slot until it passes through the tension discs next to the tension control. The thread is then brought down the right-hand-side of the takeup arm cover, and pulled-up the left-hand side (it should be pulled into the check spring at the bottom, automatically. Pass the thread around the right-hand-side of the takeup arm and then the left-hand-side so that the thread is left running through the takeup arm. Drop the presser foot. Route the thread behind the lower thread guide at the bottom of the takeup arm cover and then through the thread guide at the bottom of the needle bar, just above where the screw that retains the needle is situated. The thread guide might be a simple loop of wire or a clip on the botom of the needle bar. Thread the thread through the eye of the needle either manually or using the needle threader, if fitted and off you go. It's important to have the foot raised when routing the thread through the upper tension discs to make sure the thread sits properly within the discs rather than just going over the top of them. Raising the foot holds the tension discs open.

Need to put bobin in a merritt 4530


Flip the presser switch up to raise the presser foot. Turn the hand wheel counterclockwise until the needle is in its highest position.
  • 2Hold the hand wheel in place with your left hand while turning the hand wheel knob counterclockwise with your right hand to loosen the hand wheel knob.
  • 3Place the desired spool of thread on the spool pin so that the pin fits all the way through the hole in the center of the spool. Put the spool holder onto the end of the spool pin that is sticking through the spool of thread and press firmly to ensure that the spool holder keeps the spool in place.
  • 4Grasp the end of the thread and hold it taut between the thumb and index fingers of both hands. Snap the taut section of thread into the thread guide post located to the left of the spool pin.
  • 5Pull the end of the thread gently. Wrap the thread around the bobbin winder tension disk near the left front on top of the machine, starting at the side of the tension disk facing you and wrapping around in a clockwise direction.
  • 6Poke the end of the thread through the small hole in the bobbin from the inside out so that the loose end of the thread sticks through the top of the bobbin. Put the bobbin on the spindle, or bobbin winder, and gently slide the bobbin winder to the right.
  • 7Hold the loose end of the thread in place while pressing down on the foot pedal to start the machine. Hold the foot pedal down until the bobbin is as full as desired. The machine will automatically stop once the bobbin has reached capacity.
  • 8Cut the loose end of the thread using scissors. Slide the bobbin winder to the left and remove the bobbin. Hold the hand wheel in your left hand and tighten the hand wheel knob with your right hand by turning it clockwise

    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.

    I hava a Janome 393 Sewing Machine which I got down from Middle East. I lost my manual on my return. Though the machine is new but it is skpping stitches. I shall appreciate if you guide me how to feed the...


    First simple fix would be to change the needle for a fresh sharp one, the right size for the fabric you are sewing. Blunt or burred needles will cause poor stitching, missed stitches and often a popping or squeaking sound. New needle for every 4-6 sewing hours is the rule of thumb. I put in a new one for each new project and that way, I know it is fresh and the appropriate size and type. Use ball point needles for stretch fabrics and regular needles for woven fabrics.

    I can not see a threading diagram for your machine on line but this site http://sewing.about.com/od/sewingmachineindex/ht/threadmachineht.htm has good step by step instructions and also photos identifying the important parts of a sewing machine. They vary between makes and models but once you understand what each part does and how the stitch is formed, it is straightforward to thread up an unknown machine as they always have a similar path from the spool, to tension device, to a take up lever, then to the needle. Same applies to the bobbin, whether it is top loading or horizontal. There is a right way to put in the bobbin, and always some sort of tension spring or device which controls the release of the thread from the bobbin during stitching.tally_girl_37.jpg I can not find a 393 image either but here goes on the above image. Put the thread onto the spool pin on the back of the machine, right hand side. Sometimes the pins are retractable and need to be pulled up, others are fixed in place. Take the thread tail from right across to the left side and around the thread guide on top of the machine, the little metal hook, then down the front of the machine on the right hand side of that long dark green panel, at bottom, reverse direction and take back up the left hand side and catch thread into the take up lever. You can't see it in this photo, turn the fly wheel towards you until it raises up to its highest point and thread or pull the thread into its open end. Now back downwards towards the needle. There is usually a thread guide on the needle bar, hook thread behind this, then thread the needle and pull a tail of about 10 cms out under the pressure foot and to the back.
    Now thread the bobbin, clicking the thread tail into tension spring. On many Janomes, the bobbin cover is a clear plastic piece and has an image showing the right rotation for the bobbin to make things easy.

    Now turn the flywheel towards you holding the top thread tail firmly, go through one downwards movement with the needle, then back upwards again and pull the thread tail, catching and pulling the bobbin thread up to the top of the needle plate. Both threads under the foot and out the back and your ready to sew!

    How to thread the machine.


    http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Thread-a-Sewing-Machine/
    check out this link.. it is described clearly with the help of images...

    OR
    try to do by reading these steps..

    Step 1 Raise the needle to its highest position by turning the handwheel toward you.
    Step 2 Raise the presser foot. This will allow the thread to easily pass through the threading points and will prevent the machine needle from becoming unthreaded when you begin to stitch.
    Step 3 Place a spool of thread on the spool pin located at the top of your sewing machine. If the spool pin runs horizontally, secure the spool of thread with the cap provided.
    Step 4 Take hold of the thread end and pass it through the designated threading points on the top of the machine casing, then down toward the tension assembly. The tension assembly is located on the left side of the machine and controls the flow of thread.
    Step 5 Take the thread under the tension assembly and back up through the next threading point at the top left of the machine. Make sure the thread has passed between two tension discs as well as the hook that may be attached to the left side of the tension dial.
    Step 6 Push the thread end through the lever at the top left of the machine, if applicable, and down through the threading points at bottom left and above the needle.
    Step 7 Thread the needle from the front or back of the needle. The threading direction will depend on your machine type.
    Step 8 Pull a few inches of thread through the eye of the needle and pull the thread to your left.
    Step 9 Insert a wound bobbin into the machine, if necessary, and close the throat plate. A few inches of bobbin thread should be pulled out to the right and sticking out from under the closed throat plate.
    Step 10 Take hold of the thread that has been threaded through the machine needle.
    Step 11 Rotate the hand wheel toward you until the needle disappears into the bobbin case.
    Step 12 Keep holding on to the thread and move the hand wheel so the needle is once again at its highest position. As the needle rises, a loop of bobbin thread will come up as well.
    Step 13 Pull the thread out toward your left to draw the bobbin thread loop further out of the bobbin case.

    Step 14
    Let the top thread go and pull the bobbin thread up until the end comes up. Pull the top and bottom threads under the presser foot and to the back and right of the machine.

    I cant remember how to fill the bobbin with thread :(


    Insert the empty bobbin case onto the bobbin winder in the sewing machine.

    Step 2 Set the spool of thread onto the thread peg. Use the same thread you want to use on your material to obtain the best finished stitch.

    Step 3 Follow the arrows or guides to take the thread from the spool to the empty bobbin.
    Step 4 Start the thread around the bobbin in a clockwise direction.

    Step 5 Push the small lever against the bobbin spool to hold it in place. This disengages the needle so it won't go up and down while winding the bobbin.

    Step 6 Press the foot or knee pedal to start the winding process. Stop when you have enough thread on the bobbin for your project.

    Step 7
    Cut the thread between the thread spool and the bobbin. Insert the bobbin into the bobbin case so you can begin sewing.

    Open to clarifications.

    Beginning with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
    (To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.( If you load your bobbin case from the left side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT. There are some exceptions. If you have a newer style drop in bobbin or your bobbin case loads in the front then the rule is FLAT to the BACK.

    Threading machine


    The machine is relatively simple to thread. This is what I do and I've had no threading problems. 1. Put thread spool on the spool pin and put spool guard over spool pin to hold spool onto pin. 2. Take thread and put it under the bent tab by the circle tensioner. bring the thread around the right side of the circle tensioner and bring around the front of the circle tensioner thing back to the top hook on the far left side of the machine. 3. Take the thread around the backside of the top hook think until it threads through the flat piece on the left side of it. 4. Bring the thread down through the first (right side) channel and under the plastic piece to the second (left side) channel. 5. Bring the thread up the second channel and around the moving thread holder and past it's flat metal piece to hold it. 6. Tuck the thread around the small wire thread holder below the needle screw. This may take a few passes to catch it. 7. Thread the needle from the front and run the thread between the teeth of the presser foot. 8. Put a bobbin in the bobbin case so that the thread pulls off the bobbin from the left side of the bobbin if you look at it from above. 9. There is a small channel in the bobbin case that is covered by the bobbin tension flat piece. Pull the bobbin thread through this channel and into the empty space where the needle thread will catch. 10. Place the bobbin case into the machine with the little set bobbin arm pointed to the sky so that it fits into the machine without wiggling to the right or the left. 11. Turn the, uhhh brain fart, the hand wheel until the needle comes back up with the bobbin thread hooked over the needle thread. Take a narrow thing, like scissors or a seam ripper and pull both threads until the bobbin thread comes up. Now your machine is threaded. Use these directions with the pictures in the book to get this machine threaded.
