Bernina Activa 220

Rick - I have a Bernina Active 220 that will not sew when I press the foot pedal. Everything is plugged in however, when I turn it on the LED display is not backlit. It comes on and I can see the stich number and other indicators, but no lighting on the screen. It allows me to select stitches, etc. Additionally, I can sometimes thread a bobbin but that only works intermittantly. Please help!

thanks, michelle

Try re-threading the machine and make sure the presser foot is up first as this opens the tension and allows the thread proper entry.

Use a magnifying glass to see if the little hook in the needle threader is bent so that it is not going through the eye of the needle. You might be able to gently bend it back with tweezers.

Make sure that your needle is in the upper most position when you try and the presser foot is down.

I don't know how to use a Bernina foot I have


There are videos on the Bernina website on how to use the feet. #61 -#69 are all hemming feet. Look on this page of presser feet videos. Click the one that says #64.

Is it plugged RIGHT into the machine? Is there something caught underneath the foot pedal? might be time for a check up at your local sewing machine mechanic.

Bernina Activa 135 foot pedal problem


If you can get acess to or borrow another foot pedal to try I would do this first any of the Activa, Artista range fit to try. The fault may not be in the foot pedal but in the main CB of the machine. This can give a fualt of lights on but no motor drive. In this case the board would need replacing by a technician. Hope this may help.
