SOURCE: 1967 Bernina 707 Minimatic is not running freely

Have you been oiling the bearings per the guide? Try to isolate the upper mechanism versus the lower by rocking the handwheel and observing which causes the bind (take the bobbin and needle thread off to prevent jamming). You may have to remove some of the covers to see most of it. As long as no gearing becomes shifted or uncoupled, you should not cause trouble. Try taking the motor belt off to see if the motor itself may be binding. Good to see people keeping old, but still working machines running

SOURCE: Can't get bobbin to wind on bernina 707 minimatic

Hi,
Hi,
Is you question about how to 'wind thread in a bobbin'? If so download this manual http://www.berninausa.com/webautor-data/486/BERNINA_707_717_manual.pdf (al though the pictures are not clear, the first image shows each part with numbers)
Its just above the machine at the right side. See the first image in the manual numbering each parts, its the 14th part 'Bobbin Winder Spindle'.
And if you are looking for parts go to this link http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/bernina-707-sewing-machine-parts.aspx
Hope this helps, please rate and leave a comment if the solution was helpful, thanks!

Bernina minimatic 707 - needle isn't going up and down. I've turned the hand wheel away from me but the machine isn't sewing? Is there something else I have pressed?


Ooh, do not turn the handwheel backward. Most newer machines have a lock that prevents this.

If you had it serviced recently, take it back immediately. This indicates to me they didn't address some existing issues.

It would be difficult to diagnose without seeing the machine operate. If it worked for a couple hours and then seized, I would be tempted to oil again with Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube and follow up with heated air from a handheld hairdryer. (I've had to repeat the process several times on some seized machines before they are fully loosened and operating smoothly.) However, the clunky sound could be disconcerting.

MY Bernina 707 minimatic. It just gets stuck sometimes when I am stitching.


Be sure that your machine is well lubricated. Most older machines suffer from lack of regular maintenance-- old oil turns to glue over time and sticks things together. Use only good quality sewing machine oil, ie Bernina oil for older machines or Tri-Flow Synthetic Oil. Apply a couple drops each place where metal rubs on metal (that includes inside the upper machine, around the needle bar on the left, and in the base area, especially bobbin hook, feed dogs, etc.) Do NOT oil cams, nylon/plastic, or belts. To speed things up, you can direct hot air from a hairdryer into the internal mechanics of the machine.

If cleaning and oiling does not resolve the issue, you should probably take it for service because it could require replacement parts or technical adjustment.

FWIW, your machine is a great machine, so spending some time/dollars on it reward big dividends.

My bernina 707 minimatic..isn't working!! My needle keeps getting seized an won't move up an down...Then when i try to sew it sews blanks....


Replace the needle.
Make sure the needle is inserted the right way. If the needle is installed the wrong direction the machine will get stuck.

Check and correct tension of the bobbin. (Guide attached)

Start the top tension at four and adjust as needed.

When threading do it with the pressure foot up so any snags can be felt. If there are snags they must be corrected. While threading, little tugs of the thread along the way will help. The snags can be felt this way.

I need carbon brushes and a service manual for a Bernina 807 Minimatic sewing machine. Where might I find them?


You might be able to find the brushes from AllParts. Good luck on the service manual. You might get lucky and find a book on ebay but it's not likely.

Bernina minimatic 707 not sewing evenly


Sounds like it's not threaded properly and or you have tension problems. Re-thread with the presser foot UP. Sew a test seam. If you still get loops loosen the upper tension... a little at a time. Sew tests seam after each adjustment.

LThe power cable on my Bernina Minimatic 707 c 168 has finally snapped off /burnt out next to the footpedal. It appears the there are no replacement cables available anymore in Australia and I would


It is hard to tell for sure at this distance, but if the fault is only a broken or burned cord, any competent appliance repairman, who is licensed to work on 240V gear, should be able to dismantle the case of the foot control and reconnect it.
If the foot control itself has burned out (they can do so) then the problem is more difficult. You might be able to find one second hand on eBay.

My Bernina machine is 40 years old - a 707 minimatic but it is in perfect condition, regularly de-fluffed and oiled and had a new motor 4 years ago. A recent problem is with the tension. If I get the top...


You could try puchasing a replacement bobbin case, its possible that the tension spring on it has worn/stretched a bit. Try this website if you are in the USA - http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/bernina-707-sewing-machine-parts.aspx or just go to the bernina website and choose your country to find the head office in your country. They should be able to sell you the part or direct you to a local dealer closer to you.

Also clean out the top tension device if you haven't already. Turn to zero and floss between the discs. I use a clean selvage edge of a waste piece of cotton fabric or you could use dental floss or ribbon too, just something to get in there and remove any buildup. Thread, especailly darker colours, will shed dye particles and fibres and over time this can build up in the tension discs impairing their function.

Otherwise, sounds like you've had a really great run with your Bernina - if you don't already do this, then consider taking it for a service every two years too as the internals benefit from a lube on the older mechanical machines. It may be that the top tension device needs replacing to resolve your issue.
