Question about Bernina Activa 130
Bought this machine used several years ago. Has always had a tendency to freeze up on me. This time I looked and found thread all caught up in the bobbin. Removed as much as possible but there was thread caught up underneath the bobbin case. Took the bobbin case off and was finally able to remove all of the thread. (I know, "Stupid move) Then continued looking to figure out why it froze. Somehow the cord was placed incorrectly and when positioned just right would actually catch on the gears. Fixed that, put machine back together, but can"t seem to get timing right. Local dealership is more interested in selling me a new machine than fixing the one I have. Any help or ideas is greatly appreciated
