Bernina Artista 200

I have had the Artista 200 since new and recently it blew the fuse, the dealer replaced the fuse once again after it blew it a second time. Now concluded, its the mother board that needs to be replaced.
little more info: the machine is connected to a APC UPS.
Is there any experience out there with with this model "blowing the fuse"

Any thoughts?

I suspect there is a wire cable pinched between the covers and the frame somewhere. Someone needs to inspect all the wires and possibly replace a cable or maybe one of the plugs isn't seated correctly. The motherboard (S-print or L-print) could very well be bad but only because it got shocked in the process. Static will do this if the person is not grounded with a wriststrap while servicing. Or a plug or cable bad or pinched.

Bernina artista 200, how do i control the feed dogs?

Not sure what you are asking. The stitch length will determine how far the feed dogs travel (thus pulling the fabric) to create each stitch. There is also the foot (or knee) control that determines the speed that the machine runs.

The page 21 of the manual has that information:

Fuse blew on bernina 180 artista sewing machine advised to go up to a 5 amp fuse blew another part now has a small burn hole in it Please refund my $30 I may need a new circuit board

Herein is a lesson to very firmly learn .... fuses are rated for a reason .... NEVER, EVER put a bigger fuse in if the last one blew, because it blew for a reason. A fuse is there to protect your equipment from damage and for your safety ... if you put a bigger fuse in and your equipment gets damaged as a result, you've only yourself to blame. Just be thankful it didn't burst into flames and if you think I'm being dramatic ... dont ... fuse 'abuse' is one of the biggest causes of house fires. Whoever 'advised' you to do this wants his/her ears bashed and if you paid money for this advice, you desrve it all back plus the cost of repairing the damage it caused !!!

Ask them to replace the I/O print and make sure its upgraded to the latest firmware, also have them check or replace the motor depending on when you bought your machine these could be under warranty.

Hello. No, the only way you are going to get this to work is to replace the software with new ones, as all software come with different dongle numbers. The dongle numbers are specifically for the software that you have, you can't even change dongles. Can you get in touch with the seller to give you the dongle? I have a set of Cracked software for the BERNINA ARTISTA 180 that I can copy for you for $200, which you don't need a dongle for. Email me on: I have a BERNINA ARTISTA 180 as well and this is the software I run. RRP for the VERSION 3 and the CPS software is $4500.00. Thanks. Lawrence
