Question about Bernina Artista 180
When I sew, my machine speed slows and stops. I have oiled the bobbin case but that did not help.
Hi, Chances are good that you need to have your foot controller repaired. The electrical contacts inside the foot control can either get dirty/dusty or worn out.
If it is not an electrical problem, like your foot control ( and I think it is) then it is a mechanical problem inside your machine. If it is mechanical and your machine is "binding up" , when it slows you would find it hard to turn the hand wheel located on the end of your 180. One other possibility is that the brushes in your machines motor are worn out and you need to have the motor replaced.
All three problems would require professional help as there are not any user serviceable parts on your machine. A good cleaning and servicing at a Bernina dealer should get you back on track.
Good luck, bushvideo
