Question about Bernina Activa 130
I got my Bernina serviced in the fall and he adjusted the hook, timing and polished hook so I could sew with machine but he told me he wasn't sure how long it would last and may need to order a part- May need a hook?
Wondering what part I may need to order and can I do this or will the Serivce man that fixes the sewing machines at the store have to do this.
If the machine is sewing OK, then the timing is fine. Sometimes the tip of the hook will collide with the needle and create a burr.......if you rub your finger ligtly on the point of the hook you may feel a slight burr.....if not, it is fine, if yes, then very fine emery paper 1600 grade will polish the burr off. Work slowly and carefully on each side and feel the tip frequently, it will not take much to smooth it down. If corroded or bent, the hook may need replacing, but from the limited info here, it seems unlikely to need much attention if the service and adjustments were only done a few months ago and you have not been using the machine constantly. Do you change your needle often ? That can solve many problems very quickly. Bernina have a parts system that relies entirely on part numbers, not descriptions, and only authorised dealers have access to the codes via Parts & Service Manuals, so if you continue to have troubles, the dealer is the one to order the part for you....be sure to identify the exact model and the item you require. If they have already seen the machine and know what you need, they are clearly best placed to get the correct part. www.bargainbox.com.au
