#37 in the list as of me posting this. You can get a CD version too but you'll just pay more and wait longer for the same thing. Once you have it print the manual (preferably both sides to keep it small) ang you'll have it. You can also peruse eBay to see if anyone is selling a manual but I doubt that will yield regular results. The machine looks to be pretty basic and standard but it's best you have the manual to get the most out of the machine. Also be sure to check the cleaning and lubrication section and go through the process so that the machine is in top working order before you put it into regular use - saves a lot of headaches.

TTN tension, take up, needle.
Beginning with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.( If you load your bobbin case from the left side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT. There are some exceptions. If you have a newer style drop in bobbin or your bobbin case loads in the front then the rule is FLAT to the BACK.

Place the thread spool on one of the two thread guides. Bring the thread across to the notch on top of the machine guide it to the left and down the front of the machine. Directly under that threader close to the needle wrap it down under and go back to the top right to left then go to the top lever in the up position use your wheel to the right , wrap from right to left going down and threading. Wrapping just means placing around. Now for the bobbin. take casing out wit bobbin thread counter clockwise place in casing and release handle of casing put in machine making sue it is locked in. THen go fishing.

SOURCE: How do you thread a bernina 1008?

I hope I can explain this in an understandable way!

1. Pull the end of the thread from the spool to the left and "click" it into the little metal guide (on the top of the machine) that is at the back of the long **** in the top. It's easiest to do this by holding the thread tight between your two hands, placing it behind the guide, and pulling forward until it clicks in.

2. for the remaining steps, let the thrread slide between the fingers of your right hand, keeping a little tension on it, as you thread the machine with your left hand.

3. Bring the thread end forward, laying the thread into the ****, and continue downward, along the right side of the vertical silver bar/hook thingy.

4. Bring the thread under that bar from right to left, and go back up towards the top of the wide **** in the front of the machine. As you pull up, the thread will click into the lower bar/hook thingy.

5. Lay the thread along the right side of the wide ****, go over the top of the needle bar (the part that goes up and down in the ****) and bring it down the left side. It will click into the needle bar.

6. Bring the thread back down towards the presser foot. Right in front of the screw that holds the foot on, there is a hook that opens on the left side. Slide the thread behind this hook, and then thread the needle from front to back.

7. Hold onto the end of the thread and run the needle down and back up once. Pull on the thread, and it will pull up a loop of the bobbin thread. Stick the tip of your scissors or seam ripper into the loop and pull the end of the bobbin thread out.

8. Slide your top thread through the slot in the presser foot so it comes out from underneath the foot, and you're ready to go! (Be sure and hold onto both threads for the first few stitches when you start a seam, to keep if from jamming up inside.)

Let me know if you need any clarification.

Bernina sewing machine 1630.. Stitch won't stay in. Bobbin thread pulls out ???


Clip the top thread next to the spool. Raise the presser foot and pull the clipped thread DOWN through the needle eye. (Always remove the top thread in this manner. NEVER pull the top thread up!!!)

Now, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the top thread. Verify the thread path is correct.

Set the top tension to the midway point (then tweak the tension by testing).

If the bobbin thread is still pulling out, the top thread tension needs to be tightened. The tension is correct when the top thread and bobbin thread meet in the middle of the fabric.

Tip

Sewing Machine & Serger Problems


If you are experiencing stitching problems with your sewing machine and serger, try raising the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread. This releases the thread tensioner while threading, but when you lower the presser foot, the tensioner is activated to control the thread's tension.

Never remove the upper thread by grabbing the spool and pulling the thread tail backwards through the needle eye, thread guides, and tensioner. To remove the upper thread, clip the thread below the spool, raise the presser foot, then gently grab the thread tail by the needle's eye and pull the remaining thread through.

I am doing some machine embroidery on my Bernina Artista 730 and the upper thread keeps breaking. I have changed the needle and rethreaded many, many times!


use a bigger eye in the needle and loosen of the needle thread tension a bit
needles are all the same length but come with various size eyes to accommodate thicker or thinner threads
use scrap material until you get a good combination

Thread caught inside Bernina 1004


Take off the foot, take out the needle. Remove or open the needle plate and the bobbin access plate.

Get out the tweezers and get out all that tangled thread. When you think it's all out... move the hand wheel and see if there is more. Look for thread peeking out from between two pieces of metal, etc. Use a magnifying glass if you need to.

I have a Bernina 830 machine. When I sew the upper and lower stitch does not match Top looks normal but the bottom stitch is very loose. Please help


Sounds like you are threading the machine incorectly, try this
Rethread the machine all the way to the needle but not the needle eye.
Pull on the thread and lift and lower the presser foot at the same time.
You should have tension on the thread when the foot is down and no tension when the foot is up.
If this is so then start sewing and all should be fine.
If this is not the case then your machine needs some adjusting.
Hope this helps, if not let me know.

How do you CORRECTLY thread a Bernina 1008 for a double needle


Hi
Do you have a manual?
If not, manuals can be found on the Bernina site.
I found one for the 1004 or 1005 and another for the 1011. Hopefully one is similar enough to your machine.

I have a Bernina 530 Record and i'm trying to but


You would be best to download an instruction manual for your machine as it explains clearly, with diagrams how to thread and insert the bobbin. You probably wont find the 530 manual however download a copy for Bernina 530-2 or 532-2 as they are almost identical to the 530.

Bernina bernette just stopped sewing . have rethreaded many times . both needless put thread through material but the looper thread does not get caught by them top or bottom , so no loops are formed...


Blue red green yellow threading order is very important. Pull all threads from eye of the needles and both lower loopers and thread in that order.

Similar issue with bunching on the bottom side of vinyl


when sewing thick fabrics and when using thick threads you will usually need to tighten top tension - on most machines to maximum in order for the machine to pull the thread up into the fabric. you must also use a needle which will slide along the thread when thread is through eye of needle (take needle out of machine, put thread through eye and see if needle will pass freely along thread - if not, use a larger needle)
