Question about Bernina Artista 180

Thread get's tangled and attached to plate while embroidering

I have been embroidering and sewing on my 180 for 8 years now but within the past 6 months something will happened and thread will get tangled and caught on the plate only when embroidery module is being used. I will hear a metal sort of noise and then it may break a needle or just get all tangled. I will then literally have to cut the hoop away and usually end up ruining another item. It also will usually pull the needle out. I had the machine serviced a few months ago for this problem but it is still doing it. I used to enjoy embroidering but now it's something a dread. Any suggestions? .

Just a thought. Is it possible that your thread is wrapping around your spool post or snagging on your thread spool?

I have a futura SEQS 6000. It sews perfectly fine but when I try to embroider the thread is either unthreaded or becomes tangled with the bobbin thread and doesn't finish the design.


indicates that the needle thread is not tight enough some embroidery threads are finer than normal threads so require an increase in thread tension

How do you start embroidering a design where the thread breaks on a Bernina Artista 180 sewing/embroidery machine?


Most machines have a stitch counter, stitch forward and step back features. Check your manual and embroidery machine's screens for this.

IN case you have misplaced your manual I found this one for you. It's big so allow time to download.

Thread tangles under throat plate while embroidering


Could the little hook that is stuck over the bobbin area be the thread cutter? My thread cutter gets stuck there and I have to turn my machine off and then try to use the cutter to reset it to its "resting" position.

could be a threading problem. on the top of the machine, where you go under the plate, pull the thread back and forth like you are flossing. you should feel the thread snap around the 2 wheels, then continue threading. hope it helps
