Question about Bernina Virtuosa 150

1 Answer

No power on foot pedal

I have a Bernina 153 QE and it was running great, until....I went to change the bobbin and the "bobbin assembly" came out once I got the whole assembly in place, I went to sew. Although my machine lights up and appears to have power the foot pedal won't make the machine run. I was told to check the bobbiin winder and that seems to be in the "off" position, so I don't know what else to check. I have double checked and the foot pedal cord is plugged into the machine. Any suggestions would be helpful.

There is no way to change brushes on theses sealed motors and I highly doubt thats the issue. Most likely you didn't put the bobbinwinder back togeather correctly. The small spring type clip under it needs to be in the second notch of the teeth below the bobbinwinder to engage/disengage right. If you had the cover off its also possible you disconnected the wire to the circuitboard for the footcontrol, I beleive its black and red. Probably best for a tech to look at it.

My bernina 150 QE will not stitch. It has power but I press on the foot pedal and it just hums.


Check to see if your machine is set to load bobbins. Also, check to make sure that your feed dogs are set to the upper (on) position.

Please supply a WORKING LINK for the Bernina Vertuosa 155 Owners manual PLEASE PLEASE


The manual is not available on Bernina's web site. So far, the only thing I've found is the Bernina Owner's Workbook (for several Berninas including the Virtuosa) that may be helpful:

You may also try checking out some Yahoo Bernina Groups. You'll need a Yahoo email account, then search the Bernina Groups, and request admission. From there, you can post your questions as well as view the various documents that have been stored. Some groups have great manual libraries and very knowledgeable, helpful individuals.

Could a missing bobbin case keep a Bernina 1000 from running? It turns on, and the hand dial works, but foot pedal doesn't run the machine


no a bobbin case won't keep it from running, there may be a problem with the foot control, or the plug that you plug the foot pedal into may have a problem, may need to have the machine check along with the foot pedal

Probably too thick to feed without dislodging the bobbin case, causing the error message.

Bobbin thread tangling into knots on my Bernina QE 153


Its possible, refer to your machine manual to adjust the tension. You might need to change your needle to fit the thread you are using.

Bernine 153 QE motor sometimes does not respond to foot pedal


If its not the footcontrol (which it probably is) it is most likely the circuitboard acting up. Needs a tech.
