Because you say all was working for a while before this latest event, it will be the supressor that has failed, they are generally in the foot control (some machines have them in the main body near the power inlet) and it needs to be removed, it only stops interference to Radio & TV and is not necessary for correct function...............your nose will tell you if it is in foot pedal or inside the machine..

Unplug from mains, undo cover/s and find the electronic looking item which is cracked, burnt & probably oozing brown goo and smelling like burned plastic only worse.... Simply remove this from the circuit, clean the region with some denatured spirit, methanol or similar, wait until completely dry and re-assemble....this should fix the problem of the machine "running on" by itself....as to whether you have done a good job of the initial electrical repair, only you will know that.

By the way, how's the dog ? Guess the machine was not plugged in at the time !!

SOURCE: Machine slows down,stops, starts again. Foot control problem?

Yes it does sound like a faulty foot control. The power cord is probably fine, you just need the controller. Ebay is a good source for parts.

SOURCE: presser foot lifter is stuck can i fix it

If you can't lift the presser foot up at all undo the presser bar screw on top of the presser bar, if you have a dial turn it to 0, you should now be able to move the lever, if it is still tight put some WD40 on the presser bar and leave it for a couple of hours.

My Bernina "Record" of 1972 suddenly stitches away without foot pedal command, infact same with pedal unplugged Only way to stop is cut AC power


Something with in your machine seems to be shorting out. Since it is many years old I suspect you have wires that the insuation is rotten and making a short. I have seen this before. Should get it repaired if it's worth it. You could be shocked or hurt.

Bernina machine starts sewing anfmten stops or doesn't start at all.


Be sure that you regularly clean and oil your Bernina. If not oiled regularly, the old oil turns to varnish and actually freezes the parts. Some people believe something is wrong with the motor or foot control, when really it just needs some TLC to keep it running smoothly.

May be one of several issues--depends on the model Bernina. Could be a problem with the foot control. I had to replace a carbon brush in the foot control of my 930. (A new foot control could cost over $160!)

Or some machines (mostly older models, ie 830 Records) have carbon brushes on the motor that wear with age. Once they've worn down, they no longer make constant contact giving you the "intermittent" issue. I've replaced carbon brushes on some older Berninas--usually found somewhere around the motor (look for a screw or knob on the motor). You can buy replacements a lot of places. I've purchased them on eBay.

Bernina 1006 foot peddle does nothing


Not sure. It could be something to do with the foot control, power cord, or the motor. Does the light come on? If so, it's probably not the power cord. If you have access to another foot control and power cord, that is an easy way to test. Otherwise, might be best to take it to a Bernina technician.

How do you fix a sewing machine foot pedal for Bernina 930?


You could open it and tinker around, but since those are very expensive controls to repair once a customer has "tinkered" with them, I would suggest bringing it to a Bernina repair shop.
