Question about Bernina Virtuosa 160

1 Answer

Stops Functioning During a simple stitch the machine started to make loud noises as if a belt (on a car) were loose then stopped working completely. The electrical plug was fine, the thread and bobbin fine. Any clues where to begin (continue) the search?

I had the same problem with my jenome, it looks that the motor belt of your machine needs to change. This was the case with my machine.

I just worked with my Shark sewing machine and it was fine suddenly it stopped zig zag and start working simple stitches! Can you let me know why it happened? There was no noise or sound of breaking.


There is a spring that got loose from the needle arm that keeps pressure on the arm. It needs to be reattached. Anyway, make sure all of the normal adjustments are set properly. Just one adjustment wrong will cause the machine to only run in a straight stitch. Possibly a button hole or something else. Remove the top of the machine and look down where the needle arm is. The needle arm bracket has got to pull the arm towards the arm using the pressure of an attached spring. This spring is hanging inside the machine from a permanent side bracket. If it isn't there then it has dropped to the bottom of the machine. Anyway, the needle arm must have the sideward pull in order for the machine to produce a zigzag stitch.

Singer Touch-tronic 2000 makes loud humming/buzzing noise, stitch selector lights quit working, needle bar stopped moving.


Sounds like you've got a thread jam going on in the bobbin case area. Good cleaning and a new needle will probably fix it. See: https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20091202121550AAHxN8y

I have a Singer 327K that stitches three or four good stitches and then stops completely stitching


it's very possible that when the needle broke the machine went out of time & would have to be retimed at a sewing machine shop

Bernette Deco 600 makes loud noise after stitching


hi! there,
open needle plate if the shuttle race and the bobbins has been pull out that making noise,or accumulation of thread under bobbins, if nothing there, run machine and check if shuttle race and bobbins are moving,also with the needle if not,there are opening at the bottom of machine try to open if some gears are broken,or belt is slip.
if broken gears there a lot of parts before you can pull out gear, beside the timing order you cannot put back.this should be done by technician expert
in sewing machine.take this to service center.
cheers have a nice day just rate me.

ok,,when you press the foot peddle you will hear a continuous noise like a motor running that means its not the foot peddle, if not peddle is dying or motor carbon brushes are worn, this is a simple fix, we just need to narrow it down
