Question about Sewing Machines
My Bernina won't properly wind a bobbin. The slightest bit of thread tension (from the spool to the bobbin) causes the bobbin winding post to stop spinning.
Grrrrrrr! -- aAny self fix or self adjustment suggestions? Really hate to take it to a tech because frequently when I do the machine comes back with some new problem. I'm in San Francisco and there just don't seem to be any good machine techs near here these days.
If the winder is working without thread as it should you can rule out an electronic and motor issue. At this point it won't hurt to remove the two screws on top and lift your top cover off. Take a close look at your winder and see if there is any thread or anything wound around or blocking it. There are one or two screws that will adjust the eveness of your bobbinwinding but I don't think this is part of the problem (just a slight turn for that until the bobbin winds evenly). There is a spring beneith the winder that may have popped loose, check that but if the little arm snaps back and forth thats ok. The spring should be in the second tooth of the gear notches.
I hope this helps.
