If the machines motor is running but the needle isn't going up and down then the baste stitch finger is gummed up and needs to be serviced. This is a simple fix and it happens all the time on those machines. Take it to your local Bernina dealer for a standard service. Also if you really need it in a pinch try pushing up on the needle bar that sometimes will fix the problem but it will still need serviced.

Rose, most likely your machine is gummed up and needs oiling. A product called Tri-Flow is best. It can be purchased at most any hardware store. Or just use normal sewing machine oil. Open the top and put a fair amount of oil down behind the knobs and let it soak in. As it soaks just wiggle the knobs or turn them little by little back and forth until they free up. Don't force anything as something will break.

The clutch has fallen off the shaft. Remove the very small screw in the clutch release screw to remove the clutch release. Place the clutch(round thing with ears on it) back on the shaft with the center ears pointing towards the outside. Put the clutch release screw back on. Tighten it to make sure it works
properly. Put the small screw back in the clutch release screw and test it again. If it will not tighten or release properly, remove the clutch ,rotate it180 degrees and try it again.This should solve your problem.

Feed dog drive gear(2) are plastic and are probably stripped. Always replace them in pairs. While you are at it replace both hook drive gears as well. It will run as good as new.

The problem with your machine is the basting unit is seized, this unit is located on the needlebar asm. You can take it into a dealer to fix or if you would like to fix itself I too can help you with it. If you take it to a dealer that estimate price to fix it is around $100.00
