Its ok to put a drop or two of oil on any two metal parts that move togeather. Metal gears get grease only and plastic or nylon gears need none at all. Carefull not to over oil as too much will just collect dirt and lint that could cause worse issues.

I have been away from sewing for a while but have recently begun again. I have a Bernina 1010. The fabric feeder has quit working. Any trouble shooting tips? I no longer have my manual.


Hm, I'm more familiar with the Berninas older than the 1010. The old mechanicals will seize if they haven't been regularly oiled. Could be the feed dogs on your machine have seized for the same reason.

I've resurrected several seized Berninas from a 930 on down to some 530s by opening the top, side, and bottom and applying a couple drops of oil where metal rubs on metal. After the 830 Record, Bernina stopped including any extensive oiling directions in the owner's manual, even though the 930 requires it frequently. (Some say Bernina really wanted the repeat maintenance business, but the 930 also presented some special issues with the basting stitch and the electronic board.) However, I am uncertain how much a user can oil a 1010 without causing damage. Most Bernina manuals provide information for oiling the race but don't go beyond that. Something that may be worth trying is directing hot air from a handheld hairdryer into the area that houses the feed dogs to see if that loosens anything.

Whatever you do, don't use WD-40, 3-in-1, cooking oil, or anything other than fresh good quality sewing machine oil.

You can find a manual for the 1011 here. It may be close enough to your model to be of some use:

There are some Yahoo groups whose specialty is the Bernina owner/lover, ie BerninaThirtySomethings, and some others. They are a very helpful and knowledgeable group that could be of assistance to you.

My needle is not movin up or down..switched to zig zag and it moved left and right but no up and down..Im lost without it..whats wrong and how do i fix it? Bernina 1090 s


Have you oiled your Bernina recently/regularly? Consult your owner's manual under the Maintenance section. Sounds like the old oil may have dried and is prohibiting the needle bar from moving. Use good quality (ie Bernina) oil, not 3-in-1, WD-40, cooking oil, or the sewing machine oil from your grandmother's sewing basket). To help free it up, direct heated air from a handheld hairdryer into the interior mechanism of the machine, concentrating on the needle bar area.

Bernina 930 Records are notorious for the basting stitch sticking which eventually locks up the machine. To prevent this from happening, be sure to run the basting stitch for a few minutes every month. If it is stuck, you'll need to take it to a Bernina technician.

If it is not the basting stitch, it could be a broken plastic gear (trip to the Bernina technician) or it needs oiling.

If it is not a broken gear, then it probably needs oiling. Your Bernina mechanical requires regular oiling and cleaning even if you don't use it (ie, every time you change the bobbin, every 8 hours of sewing, or every 6 months if not in use). HINT: recommend Bernina oil or similar good quality oil for mechanical machines, NOT 3-in-1 oil, WD-40, or cooking oil!!! One or two drops of oil in every oil hole and every place that metal part rubs against metal part.

Treat your Bernina well and it will serve you well for many years.

I have bernina sport 801 machine and need to know


You can oil any two metal parts that move togeather or through each other. Do not oil bearings and do not oil gears. Do not use 3 in 1 oil or WD-40. Use regular sewing machine oil.
801's were made from 1979 - 1982. The way Bernina dated these on the machine is by the serial number. Your number would probably start with a 0 or a 1. 1970 is a 0, 1971 is 01, 1980 is 1, 1981 is 11, 1990 is 2, 1991 is 21 etc. etc.
