Question about Bernina Artista 180
I use my Bernina 180 daily. Two days ago, it started a new problem. I'm getting the "Please check the upper thread" message repeatedly. When I pull the thread out and rethread it, it will sew for about 20", then starts giving me the message again. I have taken the end cap off and have pulled some tiny threads out of the bobbin area. I don't see any loose threads in the upper area but have aired it all out. I am trying to see what is going on so have no thread in it, yet it still stops.
A 2nd problem that started a year ago: I use invisible thread a lot--now the thread repeatedly breaks. It worked fine in the past. I have tried a number of different brands--I don't think it is a brand issue. The only way I can get it to work at all is to loosen the tension all the way and then it just barely works.
Any ideas? Thanks.
The machine stops because the sensor near the check spring(in the tension area) tells it the thread is broken or not there.. You can try to clean it out again but it's probably going to have to go in for service.
