Frequently Asked Questions

The screen is not responding

The screen needs calibrating. Select "Setup", "Machine settings" and "Display calibration" and follow the instructions on the screen.

What should I do if the message with gears appears?

Cut off the upper thread, raise the presser foot, carefully lift the fabric to cut off the lower thread and any twisted threads. Do not pull! Remove the fabric. Remove the bobbin case, open the hook to check whether any thread is tangled in the hook area and remove it. Also check whether there is any thread under the needle plate. Replace the hook, bobbin case, bobbin and needle plate. Check whether the upper thread is threaded correctly and rethread if necessary.

The machine will only run slowly

There may be several reasons for this:
- The speed regulator is set to slow sewing.
- The speed was reduced during setup. In order to change this, select "Setup", "Sewing settings" and "Sewing speed control" and set the desired speed.

Support for your BERNINA 770 QE PLUS
