My nice Bernina 801 sport machine appears to have a problem.

Customer Question

My nice Bernina 801 sport machine appears to have a problem. The small arm on the right side appears to be jammed, resulting in very small, tight stitches.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: It has just occurred. I am afraid that I may have contributed to the problem as something went wrong when I attempted to spool thread.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Well, it would certainly have to be simple.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I believe that I have described exactly when the problem began.

If that arm is jammed that will be a bigger issue have you tried to take the spool out and see if anything is jamming the arm?
