My Bernini 440 stitches just fine and then all of a sudden the stitches become very small. What is happening

Check if something is stopping the thread spool from turning. Usually, when that happens, my thread is wrapped around the spool pin, stuck on the little thread notch on the spool, or wrapped around a thread guide. Try removing the top thread completely and rethreading from the start.

My needle is stuck and won’t come up

Remove everything from around the needle. Open the bobbin case and see if you can access any threads, and try carefully snipping them with a tiny pair of scissors. I had this happen to me and was able to carefully snip threads that had become tangled. After you're able to free everything, be sure to throw the needle away and use a brand new one in case it's become bent.

When sewing the thread coming of the bobbin bunches up and jams the machine it even does the same thing on my digital brothers ce1100prw project runaway limited edition computerized sewing machine

Sounds like bird nesting or thread nesting--I prefer to call it "thread mess."

Be sure to start with a brand new needle.

Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Verify the thread path is correct.
Set the top tension to the midway point and test your machine.
Adjust the top tension as needed so the top and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.
Happy sewing!

Hi I have a Juki DDL 555-5. hand wheel hard to turn, removed belt everything works as it should, try to turn pulley by motor and that's where it gets very hard to move.

I am assuming that this machine has an automatic cut and presser foot up, that you can control with your foot:
1. Depending on the age of your machine (some of these are about 20-30 years old, I believe), there are several plugs on the front of a box that is attached to the bottom of the motor. Unplug and replug each of them and make sure they are completely plugged back in. There is also sometimes a small black knob that controls the speed of the back tack, in that same row. You might try to turn it very slightly one way or the other. Test after each movement.
2. If there is a cable that runs from the hand wheel to the computer under the motor, check the length of it to make sure it hasn't gotten against the belt and made a hole in it.
3. Lastly, make sure that the thread cutter(the blades that are just under the needle plate and feed dogs) isn't hung up. I know that you said the hand wheel turns freely, but if there is a blockage of the knife movement( many times from a dull knife or the tiny circular metal "lasso" right above the knives that controls the thread for the knives. can become bent or broken) it will interfere with the knife movement. As weird as it seems, this can affect the tension because it makes the computer think its time to hold/release the thread for cutting.
, I would put my money on a problem in the computer since it turns freely when the belt is off. The only way I know to find out for sure,is to have the motor professionally tested. With the advance of machine computers, it is unfortunately possible that you will not be able to get it fixed, if it is very old. I have had machines that all the parts, especially computer boards, have become obsolete and I have had to take the computer off and replace it with a plain servo motor. Since all of the automatic cutting, etc. is actually in the motor, it becomes a good sewing machine with no automatic features.
Hopefully, yours is not one of those and it is just a loose cable or other small problem.
Good Luck, Shirley

Top thread stuck near bobbin

I just had the same problem with my Brother xl 2600i.
  • Upon close inspection, I noticed and felt a tiny bur on the silver piece right where the thread was sticking.
  • I filed it smooth with an emery board.
Still not as smooth as it was before, but at least now it works.

Loose bobbin tension

the bobbin tension is set by that small spring plate that you pull the thread under after you put the bobbin back in the carrier / holder
a very small turn of that screw makes a big difference ob the tension unlike the needle thread tension
mostly the problem ( you never bothered to mention the symptom ) is bird nesting under the fabric which is the needle thread tension not tight enough

Top thread tangled in bobbin.

try changing the needle---flat side goes to the back side of the machine
also check the top tension
depending on the fabric your sewing on--the needle & thread have to work
with the fabric--example light fabric needs a different needle & thread than
a heavy fabric
check to see if the thread is coming off the thread take up lever when you

Bobbin help please!

Take out the raceway and check for broken threads/lint. Unthread the machine and put in a new needle taking care to insert it correctly. It may be that the needle is slightly bent. Put everything back carefully and check it is running smoothly with NO THREAD first(no bobbin thread either-use an empty bobbin). This will prove there is nothing catching. If it catches when you thread it then you are having a problem with incorrect threading.
