Bernina 180E Touch Screen Dark, machine light won't come on.

I don't know the circuit of this sewing machine but it gives me the impression the light and the board are in series with a fuse. If this is true the light will burn out and cause the screen to go black as well. If the fuse would go out the same thing would be true. Anyway, change the light first. If this doesn't work you will need to replace the fuse. If there are still problems it will need the mother board to be replaced. Tell me how this worked out.

What's a fair price to repair a light bulb on 440QE?

Linda, The light bulb can fail for a number of reasons. If the power board has had the output transistor for the lighting circuit fail the 600.00 is reasonable. I would get a second opinion. Impossible to diagnose by email.

I have a Bernina Nova sewing machine, and am unable to get the foot pedal to work. The light turns on, and it works by manually turning the knob. Is it the foot pedal that is at fault? Or have i missed a...

Some Bernina models have a three application switch.

Light, light and power pedal and just the power pedal.

Inside the machine, at the back of the tower is a circuit board. It could be the contact or wire is broken.

No power

The circuit board is on the very bottom of your machine. Tilt it back and the black square you see with the phillips head screw is a cover that can be removed. (Make sure your machine is unplugged first) Once the cover is removed you'll see the board, gently move it out slightly and check to see if the 2 plugs that plug into the rear of the board are tight. One of those plugs is the motor wiring. Also check the switch, if it's bad the machine won't turn on. There is no fuse in this machine. One last issue is the bobbin shut off on the right side of the machine. It's located directly underneath the bobbin winding spindle. When you put the board back in the machine make sure you align the post from the winder shut off to the metal "flange" that hits the switch on the circuit board. That switch and shaft alignment could cause the machine not to run if it's assembled in a "pinched" position but you'd still have power to the light bulb. If the switch is good and the connections are good and the bobbin switch is aligned properly and your sure the cord is sending electricity through to the machine, then you power board is bad.

Display goes out-light stays on

Could be a loose connection inside or a circuit board problem, most likely the latter...Bernina Artista machines seem to have greater numbers of circuit board failures to me. Static discharge can fry it in a second.

I had not used my New Home Memory Craft for some

The old oil and lubricants are most likely in some stage of solidification and caused the machine to labor to turn. This causes the safety fuse to blow so that the circuit board does not overload.

Replacing the fuse is buried deep within one for the circuit boards and requires a knowledgeable service person to extract it and also address the reason the fuse blew in the first place so that it doesn't happen again.

When turning on machine have no diplay board!

A lot of people don't know this, but there is a dimmer dial on the front panel, just below the display on the left side. It can get bumped when transporting or picking up the machine. If not then you need a fuse in the base plate or possibly a new circuit board.

Good luck!

All the lights flashing and beeping constantly, wont sew at all , thought it may have been the light blub blown but the light blub only flickers on and off when you turn the machine off

First,check the Button hole lever to be sure it is all the way up. If it is you need to take the machine back to the dealer. It sounds like a circuit board problem which is probably covered under your warranty. I believe the electronics are guaranteed for 2 years. You may have to pay for the labor to replace the board. If you bought it from a Discount store (Costco, Wal-Mart) take your receipt and your machine and exchange it for another one.
