Question about Bernina Sewing Machines
The control knob for the drop feed won't move the machine won't move the material forward when I sew. I opened the bottom and oiled all the parts between the knob and the feeder plate. I tried to move the bullet shaped part back and forth which is very difficult to move. The "U" shaped part that wraps around it will move back and forth. Is there anyway I can fix it myself and if so how? Many thanks for your time.
Maybe just working that bullet shaped part will get it going. If it's a 930, you need to turn the handwheel to make the dogs get back into 'operational mode' after you move the knob.
Sometimes the mechanism is stuck behind the knob. Don't force the knob. It's possible to take the motor casing off and work it loose. Use TriFlow lubricant (small black bottle Sherwin-Williams) and leave for a while. Push gently with a pencil. Whatever you do, don't whack it with a hammer, like some folks say. It likely needs to move in the other direction (if it's stuck in 'regular' mode) i.e. towards the needle end.
