Take it to a Bernina service technician and have them tell you. Access to that side of the service program will void your warranty, this is a very very bad place you don't want to be. There are several features with no more then symbols in this menu that can cause big problems. It would be like me giving you the information to the computer in your car...

Looking for Bernina 180E SERVICE/REPAIR manual for free download.


I'm sorry about this one but I usually have to pay for the service manuals. Many times I'm successful at getting User's Manuals for free but not service manuals.

How do I connect a 180e serial cable to my usb computer when Artlink and CPS software specify serial port?


I've not successfully managed this ... trouble-is that although you can get USB-to-serial converters, most computers that only have USB ports do not properly 'recognise' COM ports, which is what your Artlink software expects to talk to. I still use an old PC with a 'proper' 9-pin serial port on the back in order to talk to the old Artista range of machines. One of the drawbacks of a 'throwaway' PC industry that expects the rest of the world to continually update everything in response to new interface standards!

My Bernina Artista 180E no longer works with updated Windows. Is it possible to upgrade so that I can still use my 180E and not have to buy another machine?


Just use the free download software from Bernina called Artlink. I used it along with a USB to Serial converter cable to connect to the machine. Works wonderfully. Allows me to still use my old Artista designer software if I want to on an older machine and then when I want to actually transfer the designs I use the laptop with the USB cable.

I was just given a 180e embroidery machine ( I am a total novice) and I am not sure how to connect the dongle and get designs that are in my computer. Thank you so much cat


I am not exactly sure of this particular model. But the dongle should just plug into the computers port on the back of the computer.

I need to hook up my bernina 180e sewing machine to my new laptop with windows 7. There is no connection port to plug in my dongle. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can make this system work?


I am assuming that you are talking about the cable from the sewing machine to the computer...

Here is the disappointing answer. You cannot hook the 180e up to a Windows System 7 computer or Vista. I have an older computer with XP on it just for my sewing machine. If you want to hook up the sewing machine to a computer that does not have a 9-pin, you will need to buy an adapter that goes from 9-pin to USB. I bought one from Belkin, and you may need to buy it online. It costs about $30.

I have the embroidary software version 4 that has a dongle. It will also not work on Vista or System 7 and the Bernina dealer says I can upgrade for $400.

Bernina 180E Embroidery module not recognized


Anytime there is a communication issue between machine and module attach the module to a different machine and check it. Possibly at a dealership. This will tell you whether its the machine or module. If its the machine then the soldering points on the embroidery module plug to the A-print (on the side of the machine) circuitboard need to be checked. Then most likely replace the A-print circuitboard.
There are other tests that need to be done in the service program that will help pinpoint and troubleshoot issues with the embroidery unit. Such sensors or stepping motors, etc. Should be left to a tech.
Hope I helped.

What is lastest version of artlink w/ 180e to use with new .ART files


Yes you can use V4.0 artlink it is available in some markets upto V5 it just depends what version the designs were done in. If it was higher than V4.0 you may still have an issue. Have a look at some of the programs like Embird for more cost effective ways to edit designs but you will still need Artlink to load designs onto the machine.

180E Hoop problem


Joan, there are 3 micrositches on your embroidery unit arm. these switches are depressed when you attach the hoops, it appears from your comments that one switch is not functioning. This could be simple, it is out of alignment or more complex it is broken. Either way you need to take it to a professional for repair.
