Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use off-brand bobbins?

We recommend to use only BERNINA quality bobbins because using off-brand bobbins can cause unsatisfying thread tension and other problems.

How often should the machine be oiled?

The frequency of oiling depends on the number of the sewn stitches. We recommend to place a drop of oil onto the hook race before sewing for a longer period, but at least when the machine prompts you. When sewing bigger projects, you can oil the machine once a day.

The machine is running very slow.

Check the slide speed control on the front of the machine and move to the right. Here you can set the  maximum speed setting when sewing with the foot control or use it to adjust the speed when working with the start/stop button.
 

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 screen is not responding

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

Whats the use of the vertical spool pin?

Necessary when using a second thread for example sewing with the twin needle.
For stacked (parallel wound) threads, use the vertical spool pin to allow the thread to evenly feed off the spool.
Important: use the foam pad as base.

The lower thread indicator is not responding

There may be several reasons for this:
The door of the hook cover is open. Close it.
The sensor of the lower thread indicator is dirty and needs cleaning.
The lower thread indicator has been deactivated in "Setup". Select "Setup", "Monitoring functions" and "Activating the lower thread indicator".

Support for your BERNINA 700 E

To ensure that you enjoy your BERNINA for as long as possible, we recommend that you read the detailed operating instructions. Further support information and firmware updates can be found on the support page.
