You'll need a 2.5 mm hex key metric (you can buy a complete set in Radio Shack for about $10 if you don't have metric). AND you will need to cut down the shorter end of that key about half way (total remaining end will be around 8 mm), as there isn't room for the whole key in that tiny space.

Open the light bulb door, it should be easy to see where it goes but you may need two pairs of hands.

If you take it into a Bernina dealer, they should do it for free as it takes like one minute! can ask for nothing! Those guys have all the right tools but there's no mystery, so don't listen to any nonsense.

The will on the right of industrial Bernina 850 that moves the food appand down one more what can be wrong

Try tightening the nut in the right side handwheel. It is approximately 1.5 inches in diameter. Tighten it up and the needle should then move up and down.
The presser foot is operated by a lever directly behind it. Move the lever down and the presser foot will do likewise.

Presser foot lever fell off . How to fix it

Most likely a piece has fallen off that held the lever in place. You should probably take it to a Bernina service repair.

Presser foot shaft twisted

You can correct this.

Put an ordinary foot on. There's a clamping screw at the back of the part that has twisted round. The head of the screw faces towards the right of the machine (towards the hand wheel). Get a decent screwdriver and loosen the clamping screw a little. Turn the part round so that the sides of the feet are precisely parallel to the slots in the needle plate. Retighten the clamping screw.

Try not to let the misaligned part slide up or down which it will if you slacken the clamping screw too much. It's at the right height when the little lever you use to hold the foot in place has engaged about one third to one half it's length on the lump on the side of the foot at the top.

Bernina 801 tension problems

When you thread the top thread, be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot so the thread will seat completely in the tension unit. Your machine is an older metal mechanical machine which makes it last a lot longer than the newer plastic computerized models. However, parts do wear, so perhaps the tension unit has become worn and loose over time and use. If you find you have find you are using a consistently high tension, you may need to have your machine serviced. In addition, slightly increasing the bobbin tension may help balance out the top tension.

I have a Bernina Bernette serger 004D/004 and the presser foot has fallen off the machine can I fix this myself?

The presser foot is a 2 piece thing, remove the foot, then remove the top bit that the foot attaches to (the shank). Look at the bottom of the shank while pressing the little lever or button on the back of it, you will see how the foot attaches to the shank.

I have a bernina sport 801 and the fabri feeder

There is a small knob on the lower part of the main body under the stitch length lever. This controls the feed dog up or down. Make sure that it turns easily and fully to both positions. If it does and your problem persists, the feed dog height adjusting point is probably loose. A knowledgeable repair person needs to look at it. It is not a difficult repair, but several approaches need to be taken.

Feed dogs do not come back up after lowering

Are you talking about the feed dogs or the presser foot. Either way, if you moved a lever to lower them, there is probably a screw that either fell out or has become loose that holds the linkage to the lever.
