I have a Bernina Record bought in 1969 which needs a new motor. Any idea where I can find one?

We do have such motor in stock both new and rewinded. Please visit www.sewingmachine.com.au for more information in purchasing this part.

That needs a repairman because you have to reset the gears, if it is still having the same problem take it back to the repair center and they should fix it again for free because they did not solve the problem. I am sorry to tell you but those machines have been nothing but headaches to my customers, many have just bought new machines (our shop sells Brother and Babylock).

Skipping stitches while zig-zagging

If you have put a new needle in then the chances are the machine has gone out of time, you can either take it in to the repair shop or you can contact me and I will attach timing instructions drivewithken@blueyonder.co.uk

Okie Dokie..... Here's the way I see it.. The repair center was of little or no help to you . So, I will try to do my best..
First thing you need to do is unthread your machine and set the tension to 4.. Rethread the machine up to just before the needle.
When you get that far, put the presser foot down. If your thread pulls right thru easily, it is not threaded thru the tension wheel right. It your thread is hard to pull thru with the presser foot down, then it is threaded right.

General rule of thumb..
Loops on the bottom-- problem on the top
loops on the top--- problem on the bottom.
Hope this helps..
