Question about Bernina Activa 140

2 Answers

Bernina 430 aurora will not sew, beeps when pedal is pushed...

I was sewing fine & then I got the oil light so I stopped and cleaned the fuzz and dropped a drop of oil in the hook race. Rethreaded & now all I get is a beep when I press the pedal. I think this is a simple problem but there is nothing in the instruction book about this.

Thank you

Joy

    I'm not sure what you mean by the bar. Are you talking about the door to the hook? I've taken it out a few times and put it back on, but I'm still having the same problem. It just beeps at me and won't do anything. Please help!

If you took the door off check and make sure the lower thread sensor on the door is snapped on correctly. Many times it gets put on beneith the bar rather than over it.

    Displayed: 180,000 stitches = sewing stitches + (embroidery stitches/2) (a200 principle).

    The stitch counter (up-counter) triggers a flashing symbol on the display as a reminder to the

    user.

    The counter is reset if the user confirms the message by pressing OK twice (refer to Instruction

    manual page 58)

    The counter is reset by the service technician by pressing OK twice in service programme 12.2.

    The message is cleared by pressing ESC but it will reappear the next time the machine is

    switched on unless acknowledged by pressing OK before that. After it has been cleared three

    times by pressing ESC, the message will not reappear. The counter is then reset automatically.

    In the

    user programme, the CLR

    key corresponds to ESC, and

    the # key corresponds to OK.

Bernina machine starts sewing anfmten stops or doesn't start at all.


Be sure that you regularly clean and oil your Bernina. If not oiled regularly, the old oil turns to varnish and actually freezes the parts. Some people believe something is wrong with the motor or foot control, when really it just needs some TLC to keep it running smoothly.

May be one of several issues--depends on the model Bernina. Could be a problem with the foot control. I had to replace a carbon brush in the foot control of my 930. (A new foot control could cost over $160!)

Or some machines (mostly older models, ie 830 Records) have carbon brushes on the motor that wear with age. Once they've worn down, they no longer make constant contact giving you the "intermittent" issue. I've replaced carbon brushes on some older Berninas--usually found somewhere around the motor (look for a screw or knob on the motor). You can buy replacements a lot of places. I've purchased them on eBay.

Why does the built in light go out as soon as you start sewing and comes back on when you stop?


sounds like there is a short in the wiring somewhere in the machine, it would be a good idea to have it checked

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

The motor running noise is because your bobbinwinder is on. Flip the bobbinwinder to the right.

Hi, possibly your feedogs are dropped and in the darning position and/or its thinking you want to embroider and there is NO hoop attached or entire embroidery unit plugged in. Check your feedog button below the handwheel on the bottom.
