Re: machine wont come on
More than likely you have a blown fuse. If you plug it in,turn it on and nothing happens the fuse is the first place to look. Unfortunately, it is not a simple repair that I'm going to recommend you do. It should go to a dealer who is familiar with this brand of machine and shouldn't cost more than $100 including servicing. sewman7

machine is out of time and u probably have burrs on the hook since you broke the plate with a needle probably from pulling fabric and bending the needle. you instruction manual will tell u how to time machine and its really very simple. all u have to do is take off feeder plate, loosen the 3 screws that hold the hook then lower the needle with the wheel until the needle just starts to rise. bring the loose hook point to i/16 " fron the needle and tighten hook screws. machine must be tilted back to do this whole operation. it helps to have a short screwdriver to tighten the hook screws. remove burrs with lite emory paper stroking in the sale direction as the hook.
16x63 needle system, unless it's been retimed for something else. Suggest you might want to find the dull, bent up or otherwise still intact needle and show it to your industrial supplier or repair person, so they can check for you.
Needle system tells you about the length and timing distance of the needle: see, e.g.: http://designer-entrepreneurs.com/blog/illustrations/Singer_Needle.pdf Size tells you about the diameter of the needle: here's a suite of home sewing machine needles, all of the same needle system, but one of the photos shows a comparison of sizes:
some times when you break a needle in a sewing machine or serger it can cause the machine to jump time, it would be a good idea to have the machine checked for a timing problem or to see if when the needle broke it caused a problem with another part in the serger.
try another needle rethread the machine top & bobbin clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or threads if none of these things help then I suggest the machine get's serviced just incase the timing is messed up
If the needle wont go up and down at all when you turn the handwheel, it's most likely due to fluff and general muck has got into the basting stitch mechanism - this is a frequent failure on Artista models that have the basting stitch option. Try gently pushing the needle bar up at the same time as turning the handwheel ... with any luck the basting solenoid clutch will re-engage with the hole in the needle bar. If this works, it's only a temporary fix and tells you that your machine is overdue for a service !!!! Getting the gunge out of the basting mechanism needs to be done by a Bernina service agent. Trouble is, some embroidery patterns use the basting mechanism to raise the needle-bar out of the way whilst the hoop moves to a distant point on the embroidery, so if you 'fix it' using the above method, it may well fail again when you try to do another embroidery. Sorry !

no damage to the machine yet
check the thread size you are using as you may have to use a needle with a bigger eye
thread is made by winding the material around and around then using a product to hold the material ends together
as a result thread will not last indefinitely and will break easily
you may have to use only thread from manufacturers that you know make good thread
Yes they can indeed go out of time and breaking needles is the most likely cause. To solve timing problems you will need a sewing machine engineer though. The part which needs adjusting would be the area above the needle-the needlebar but it is a fiddly affair only to be attembed by someone who can repair sewing machines. It is also a fairly expensive repair as it is very time consuming. However-don't assume it is that. Firstly make sure the new needle is in correctly-the most common cause of problems is needles in wrong direction! If bobbin opens at front then the flat part of the needle faces the back. If bobbin area opens at side then the flat side of needle faces the body of the machine to the right. Check needleplate for damage so that new needle does not catch. File it smooth if you need to! Check you are using a good quality thread as cheap thread causes no end of problems. Guuterman is the best I found.
When it feels like the needle is jammed, open the bobbin cover and release the two black retaining levers, one on either side of the bobbin case. The hook cover that is visible will be released. If the machine turns by hand smoothly, you may have a piece of the broken needle, or just a piece of thread stuck behind the hook or hook cover causing the bind. This problem will sometime make you swear that the needle is stuck in something because it will usually bind while the needle is down in the fabric.
