Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a fairly new Bernina 440 sewing computer machine with embroidery module. While working on an embroidery project, I had a thread break. Fixed it and rethreaded the machine. Now the machine will complete 45 stitches and then I hear the "broken thread" alarm again and it stops. There's no thread break, though. Does this every 45 stitches. I called the dealer and she said to check a spring on the take-up arm. I did that, but it didn't help. Any ideas? Thanks, Diane

It sounds like something in the controls loop got out of sync and made the thread break semi-permanent; try single-stepping and backscrolling through the stitches, and see if it can't memorize success instead.

   If you can skip that item for now; surely power cycling or resetting the thing, running self-test or updating its firmware can remedy the situation?

I have a bernina 440 yesterday I used my embroidery unit all day. Today it won't write to the sewing machine. I only get a spinning spool of thread. What do I do?


Did it work ok yesterday? I would suggest completely unplugging it..from the computer, from the embroidery unit, and the wall plug in. Then, restart your computer and reload your design file. This won't hurt anything...and it may help! Good luck :-)

Bernina 440QE, when I'm using the embroidery module, the machine stitches for 36 stitches then says there is a thread break when there is not, how do I resolve this issue.


there could be a sensor problem, if the machine continues to have the problem then having the machine checked would be a good idea

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.

My bernina 440 qee embrodery module reports thread break and stops every 30 stitches alhough the thread is OK - can someone help?


The check spring might need to be adjusted. There's a flag and sensor mounted to the check spring that tells the computer when the thread has broken or run out. Might want to have a Bernina dealer check it out.

When stitching the design the upper thread keeps


The tension is not properly set for embroidery, try to rethread totally new. Sometimes it is also caused by broken thread inside the machine, you can open it with the supplied L-shaped tool on the left side of the machine where the lamp is located and than take it out with a tweezer.

I figured out the solution for this issue. It all has to do with the threading. And I mean literally follow the instructions word for word. Most importantly is the Bobbin thread. make sure to thread the bobbin through the case eyelet.

I'm not an expert, but maybe your bobbin is wound incorrectly, or not put in the bobbin case properly?  Hope it is something as simple as this.  Good luck!

I had the same problem. It maybe you have some bits of thread caught inbetween the metal plates . That's what my problem was . Try cleaning carefully between the plates with something flat carefull not to scratch them.
