You can loosen the tension on your bobbin some. Be careful not to loosen too much. You do this by turning the screw counterclockwise. Also your needle may have a snag on it. occasionally, a needle can be bad.

My Bernina 1090 keeps breeaking the bottom thread. It sews about 10 inches and breaks. I take out the bobbin and rethread and it sews a while but still breaks. I have had it in for service 3 times and...


Assuming your bobbin tension is not too high, make sure the bobbin case is clean on the inside - use a cotton bud to clean it out. Are you using good quality Bernina bobbins - if not you're on a hiding to nothing ! It is possible that the bobbin case is deformed, but most likely your service man has set up the tensions too high ... look for someone else !

Tension is too tight unable to loosen cotton breaks Maybe needs a service??


Before you do anything else unthread and rethread the machine again. Sometimes the thread gets hooked on something or wrapped around and will cause it to break. Of course do check the tension again too. Is it breaking when you pull on it before it goes through the needle?

If it is breaking when sewing then it could be that the bobbin tension is too tight.

Have you checked not only the top tension but also the bottom (bobbin) tension? Top tension is usually a lever wheel etc on the machine (depending on model). To tighten the bobbin tension you need to tighten the small screw on your bobbin casing.

I don't suppose it could be as simple as this?

The thread in the lower looper breaks frequently I spend more time threading than sewing


Try replacing the needle. It may be bent. I use polyester/cotton thread in the bobbin as it is stronger and resists breaking. A loose or a tight adjustment on the bobbin holder can also cause breaking. Check with a service shop for this one if you are not familiar.

Cotton is not threading up from bobbin.


Check your needle to be sure the flat side of the shank is facing the back of the machine.

Make sure the bobbin is inserted so the cotton is threading from the bobbin in the correct direction and through the correct guides.
