When I repair a machine I use triflow oil on any metal to metal rotating part ie back and forth. On metal gears I put the tri flow grease. You can use it on plastic gears although sparingly. the nylon gears were design for quietness and were not recommended for grease. You want to get the old grease off as best you can. If it goes up and down or side to side then oil. If it continuously rotates then grease. Exception those bearings that have an oil hole vs a grease cap.

Sounds like your stitch is bad? If so then check you tension on the upper and also on the bobbin. Typically there is an adjust for the upper tension and for the bobbin on the bobbin case. There are many you tube videos on how to adjust tension for both to get a great stitch. If you are talking about the bobbin thread only then you may have to clean the bobbin area where it self winds or if it is an older machine with outside winder check to make sure it is winding correctly ie back and forth on the bobbin which can be adjusted with tension on the winder itself.

WE FIXED IT!!!!! Ok my fabulous husband fixed my automatic thread foot last night and now I am sewing away. Here is what he did best I can describe. when you engage the thread shuttle, a piece comes down from the right of the sewing machine. I has a spring on the back and a very thin piece of wire with a white plastic moving part. the foot has to snap under the white plastic thing... so you have to very carefully take the white thing out of the track and then put the foot in. the bar side with the larger metal pin goes here and the foot should be facing towards the needle. Hope this helps and if I didn;t explain it well please leave me a note and I will try again :)

The Bernina Record 930 has two belts (for upper and lower cogs). You can buy the belts at some sewing machine parts supply shops. One source is . Manuals Lib has the service manual for the Bernina 930 here: . Page 58 shows how to adjust the tension on these belts, . See pages 2-4 to remove the covers to access the machine internal parts. Wait at least 30 seconds after unplugging the machine before removing the panels to allow the capacitors to discharge.

I hope this helps.

Has your machine worked before? Check that it is the correct bobbin and bobbin case. Although,if it is the spindle that is sticking out through the bobbin case, that is the shuttle. Perhaps the shuttle is not seated correctly.

Otherwise, it would probably be good to take it for service.
