Im about %99 sure you will only be able to get this part from a bernina dealer or someone who is friends with a bernina dealer.
I also think that that hook is the same hook that is still being used is all bernina 5.5 mill machines today so it should be eazy to get.
We sell the part for about $110.
Why do you think you need a new hook? I think I have seen about 3 of them hooks go bad in my life (so not many).
Hope this helps

I have a Bernina Activa 230 and my bobbin case is stuck in the machine and it wont come out, Someone Please help me what do I do?

can you unlatch the ring cover device? there is a little release lever on the left just inside the bobbin area which secures a hinged silver square called hook race cover, if you unlatch this, flop the cover forward, then the bobbin case and shuttle should all come out as well.

Hello, My bobbin thread was caught and as I was trying to get it out the hook system (I believe that is what it is) came out. How do I replace it?

You have a CB hook on your machine and this is very easy to remove and replace. In fact, you should remove the hook to clean the hook race and give it a drop of oil every few bobbins-worth of thread anyway, so if you're not doing that, your machine is probably trying to tell you something !!! I am assuming that the hook has simply dropped out of the mechanism and not that the whole hook and hook driver have come out, leaving a big hole in the hook race - if this has happened, you will need to replace the hook driver and its screw in the correct orientation, otherwise the machine timing will be out - if this is the case, you may be able to do the job yourself - contact me. Assuming it's just the hook, first-off, remove the bobbin/bobbin case from the central shaft on the hook. I am assuming the black plastic hook retainer has dropped-down and is laying on the bobbin door ... if not, you're in trouble !!! Rotate the handwheel on the machine until the needle is at the top of its travel. Look in the bobbin door at the hook race and you will see that the hook driver (a black plastic disc with a metal part curving round one edge) is positioned with the metal part on your left. Pick up the hook by the shaft and orientate it so that the metal is on the right - i.e. its a mirror to the hook driver. Carefully insert the hook into the hook race until it drops into the race itself and sits with the point downwards and a little bit of play between the hook and hook driver. It should stay there if there's a bit of oil in the hook race. You might like to use the opportunity to put one drop of Bernina oil into the hook race so that it flows into the groove that runs around the inside. Once the hook is sitting in the hook race, you only need to close the black plastic retainer onto it and press it until the lever on the left clicks into place firmly - that's probably why it dropped-out in the first place. Before putting the bobbin back in , just rotate the handwheel once to make sure nothing is binding - this will also distribute the oil if you've oiled it. Refit your bobbin/bobbin case, close the door and off you go.

Dont no how to work the autmatic theader

You haven't said what make and model but on my Janome 6500 the auto needle threader is a little plastic piece that you pull down on the left of the needle bar. You pull it downwards and it swings over and a little hook comes through the eye of the needle. Now pull your top thread down in front of it and then to the right against the bottom of it. This brings the thread across the front of the needle and the little hook. Let the threading device go and it should pull back out of the needle and upwards again, taking the thread with it and through the eye of the needle. Now, just disenage the thread from the little hook and you should be ready to go.

Most needle threaders are some variation on this, a little wire or hook that comes through the eye from the back to front, so you can introduce the thread into it, then pull it back through the needle eye.

Of course you can always remove the needle from the needle holder, and thread it with a little manual needle threader in the same direction, insert it from the back, put the thread into the wire loop, then pull it back through the needle eye. Then put the needle back into the needle holder flat shank to the back, if your machine doesn't have this feature. Most multi packs of hand sewing needles will come with a little metal needle threader which often just sits there unused.

I hope this assists you with your machine.

How to thread a singer feather weight machine

  1. To begin threading the Featherweight, use the third photo below as a guide.
  2. Put a spool of thread on the thread spindle
  3. Pull the free end of the thread to the left across the top of the machine and hook it over the thread guide (number 1)
  4. Pull the thread down and under (from right to left) the tension discs. (number 2)
  5. Hold on to the spool of thread to create tension on the thread, and pull the thread so in puts pressure on the thin wire called the “take up spring" (number 3). The uptake spring is part of the tension knob device.
  6. Pull the thread up making sure it passes behind the metal bar thread guide. (number 4)
  7. Pass the thread from right to left through the hole in the take-up lever (number 5).
  8. Refer to photo number 4 for the remaining instructions. Guide the thread down and hook it behind the thread guide (number 6).
  9. Then hook the thread behind the next thread guide located at the bottom of the chrome face plate (number 7).
  10. Hook the thread behind the thread guide on the needle bar assembly (number 8)
  11. Finally, thread the needle from right to left.

How do you use the needle threading device

To the left of the top of the needle there is a little lever. Make sure the needle is all the way up by turning the wheel. Pull the lever down and a hook will go throught the eye of the needle. Place the thead across the hook and release the lever. You should have a loop of thread coming out the back side of the needle. Pull the loop and your needle is threaded.

I can not get my designs i downloaded off line on to my baby lock

You have to have an Amazing Box or similar device and a blank memory card. You hook the Amazing Box up to your computer, put the memory card in it, and transfer the designs onto the card that way. Then you use the card in your machine like any other embroidery card.

Automatic threading

Although I do not know this model, the philosophy of these types of threader is to place the thread horizontally to the needle across the needle hole while a tiny hook comes towards you thru the hole and pulls a loop of thread with it, you grab the loop and pull it free.

(Some older Janomes have a device that pushes from front to rear)

The tiny hook can and does get bent, so get a magnifier and just check it is functioning....if it is missing the needle eye, a small implement, like jewellers screwdriver etc may be used to gently straighten and re-align....they are quite sturdy, but be gentle.

Once you have a look at the device under magnification you will also much better understand how it works, and know where the thread needs to be for it all to come together !
