Question about Bernina Activa 130

1 Answer

Bernina Virtuosa 153 QE is jammed.

I probably replaced the bobbin after filling it incorrectly. It jammed on the first stitch. I can not get anything to move with the hand wheel (haven't even tried the foot pedal, afraid to). I feel that it needs a professional to fix it, BUT, I am an American living in China and have no idea where to go for help and I really don't trust someone who has never seen a Bernina before. I have contacted the Bernina Co. and a dealer in Hong Kong (closest place to me, but still a trip to get there with the machine!) Do you have any suggestions on something I could do myself to fix it? I have carefully taken apart what I can, but I see nothing obvious wrong.

Please supply a WORKING LINK for the Bernina Vertuosa 155 Owners manual PLEASE PLEASE


The manual is not available on Bernina's web site. So far, the only thing I've found is the Bernina Owner's Workbook (for several Berninas including the Virtuosa) that may be helpful:

You may also try checking out some Yahoo Bernina Groups. You'll need a Yahoo email account, then search the Bernina Groups, and request admission. From there, you can post your questions as well as view the various documents that have been stored. Some groups have great manual libraries and very knowledgeable, helpful individuals.

Probably too thick to feed without dislodging the bobbin case, causing the error message.

Its possible, refer to your machine manual to adjust the tension. You might need to change your needle to fit the thread you are using.

Some one said if you use a different needle will damage the hook what is a hook i use a different needle for awhile how can you tell if you damage the hook i got a bernina 153 QE from a friend work good...


The hook is in the bobbin area and is what takes the thread from the needle to make the stitch. A standard 15x1 needle or 705 needle is the correct needle for your machine. They are available at ant sewing center.

No power on foot pedal


There is no way to change brushes on theses sealed motors and I highly doubt thats the issue. Most likely you didn't put the bobbinwinder back togeather correctly. The small spring type clip under it needs to be in the second notch of the teeth below the bobbinwinder to engage/disengage right. If you had the cover off its also possible you disconnected the wire to the circuitboard for the footcontrol, I beleive its black and red. Probably best for a tech to look at it.

Bernina Virtuosa 153 QE Won't turn on


If you've got bad luck like I do, you probably blew out the circuit board! It took my Bernina dealer 4 months to get another from Sweden; thank goodness they gave me a loaner.
Unfortunately, it happened again right after I picked it up from the dealer, and they have to find another circuit board for it! It's not a problem with my electrical wiring because the loaner ran just fine.
It's very, very frustrating because I'm a small business and need my machine running!
