There are several possibilities.The timing may be off, the hook/needle clearance may be off, the needle bar may need adjusting, the needle may not be inserted correctly, the fabric you are sewing through may have a gummy residue on it which is causing the thread to stick to the needle. I would change the needle first and make sure It is positioned correctly(long grove to the left) and inserted all the way up.

Check and rethread upper thread message appears often even when the upper thread is not broken


The thread may not be lodging firmly in the tension mechanism. Make sure that the thread is firmly settled between the tension discs.
Also keep an eye on what is happening with the thread in the take-up lever (the arm that moves up and down with each stitch on the head of the machine) as the thread may be 'jumping' out thus causing the message.

My machine seems to jump alot and the underneath stitches are just tying itself into lots of knots.


Is it just the bobbin that is jumping? This will happen if you have the bobbin in upside down. Both sides look the same, but you want to make sure the bobbin will turn in the same direction as the little arrow on the metal right by the bobbin slot. If you goof, the bobbin will keep popping up and down and you'll get knots.

The bobincase springs up giving no stitch in singer inspiration


Try buying a new bobbin case, it probably was damaged by jumping out of position.

Jumping stitches.


Replace the needles and choose size according to the thickness/weight of the fabric you are serging.

You may have to re-thread, here is a video from Threadbanger - http://www.allbrands.com/products/abp08027.html

My ls2125i won't stitch


Although I am not a expert at sewing machines, I have worked a lot with an industrial sewing machine. You might check the tension of the thread that goes through the needle. If it is to tight it will pull it through the needle. There should be somewhere on your machine that you can adjust the tension.

Bernina 1080 stitch length and needle jumping problem


you will most likely find that just adjusting the stitch length and width controls for a while will correct the problem (if the machine has been sitting idle for some time the stepper motor linkages seem to stiffen up a bit but i have good success with continual adjustment until they free-up.

also try switching machine off and on again to ensure it resets correctly.

the combination of both above fixes works 95% of the time - otherwise, as you mentioned circuit board and or stepper motor replacement may be necessary (however if both length and width are playing up it is unlikely to be an electrical fault).

Underneath stitch bad


Sometimes even though the tension is at recommeded placement, you may find with various fabrics or threads, you have to adjust it. I would try to raise the tension just a bit. Try it a little at a time until you achieve a stitch you are happy with. If adjusting the tension does not correct the problem, double check your threading. If sure it is threaded properly, especially going through the tension assembly...check your thread. I have found that the thread you use can and often does create tension problems. Try changing the thread and see if the stitch quality improves.
