Question about Bernina Activa 130

Bernina Activa 135

There is a problem with my foot pedal not starting the machine. Somehow I think it is connected to the winding mechanism because the machine light comes on but it doesn't respond to pushing the foot pedal. Help!

    I've looked closely at the foot pedal, wiggled all the wires, and made sure it was plugged in correctly. Too bad. I just had my yearly tune up last month. I guess I'll hae to go back. Thank you for trying though.

    my machine seems to be doing the same thing, I've tried turning it off and on and when I do get it started, it has a hard time stopping, i.e. I need to turn it off at the power.

    Does anyone have a suggestion?

Is it plugged RIGHT into the machine? Is there something caught underneath the foot pedal? might be time for a check up at your local sewing machine mechanic.

Can Bernina walking foot with soles and seam guided used on Activa 210 be used on 16 yr old Bernina Activa 230????


Please be advised that the newer machines (Classic models) such as the 130-180 and up, have a totally different geometry. This is to say that the older machines have a shorter distance from the center of the presser bar to the needle center. The newer machine design was increased to provide space for needle threaders etc. Older machines will use an older Walking foot model (still available).

there are Bernina manuals as pdf's on their website, www.bernina.com, then go to Support, choose your manual in the drop down box and download it. There is not one there for the Activa 130 but the 135 is there and the 125, both will be very close to your mode.

Attachments for 140 activa


Do you mean a presser foot to sew rolled hem or shell hem edges?

If so, the Bernina website lists the accessories here:http://www.bernina.com.au/product_detail-n25-i61-sEN.html

Bernina feet 68 and 69 are rolled hem/shell, just different widths. However, I think the feet for the Activa are the new 3 digit numbered feet? I know there is the old style and new style attachment system for Bernina feet, if you look at the presser feet you got with the machine, they will have a code on the front of the foot; buy any new feet with same code format.

As to where to buy, I always start with the manufacturer/distributor in my country first. So start with www.bernina.com, go to your country, then "contact us" page and give the local office a call. They should be able to confirm the exact foot code you need and sell it to you or direct you to a local dealer who can.

Bernina Activa 135 foot pedal problem


If you can get acess to or borrow another foot pedal to try I would do this first any of the Activa, Artista range fit to try. The fault may not be in the foot pedal but in the main CB of the machine. This can give a fualt of lights on but no motor drive. In this case the board would need replacing by a technician. Hope this may help.
