Question about Bernina Virtuosa 160
I have lost my book for Bernina Virtuosa 160
I need explaination of
the presserfoot adjustment circle on the left end.
as the stiches are too tiny even tho I have stitch
length at 4.
If your stitches are tiny more than likely the feeddogs are not working correctly. More often than not its because the pivot points for the feeddog mechanism inside are gummed up,dirty and oily and they need to be cleaned. Your machine is in need of service. Does not really have anything to do with presser foot pressure especially if you have tried adjusting that to no availe.
It needs servicing.

Presser foot height is 7.5mm and your feed dogs should be just a little shy of 1mm. IThat little knob merely changes the pressure on various materials and doesn't effect the stitch lenght. t sounds like your feed dog timing is a little off, rotate your handwheel and make sure they are moving in the right direction and down before the needle reaches the stitch plate. Remove the free arm cover that surrounds the carrier/bobbin area, there is a tiny little fan/traingle shaped gear that adjusts the feed dog direction and travel direction. Make your adjustments there and let me know! Couldn't really confirm if this was your problem?

I am still looking for the instruction book because it is here somewhere.
I will do trial and error method.
With forty years experience with Singer and Simplicty, but only two with Bernina
I will figure it out.
