I found the same numbers on my Singer, but learned that the 13608M is not the serial number. I finally found it on the bottom of the machine. It typically begins with either a single or double letter. You can find the Serial No. and Year of Issue at http://www.singerco.com/support/serial_numbers.html. You can also order a replacement manual. Another helpful site might be http://www.ismacs.net/Singer/singerdates.html.

As a Bernina tech I may be a bit biased on this but I can say this... If you decide on this machine be sure you get it from a dealership with an on-site technician. Any can be an Authorized dealer but not many have a Certified technician. Not to say that you will need one but if it does get an issue in can be taken care of promptly. Also Bernina dealerships are required to have a class for you on their machines. I have worked for a Bernina dealership for the past 5 years and have not had a Bernette come in for a repair. Of the reviews I've read the complaints are of the tension which seems most likely a user default such as not keeping it clean after use, using cheap thread, not understanding how to adjust it for different fabrics, the right type of needle, etc.
I like the 1 step buttonholer and the threader. I wish the lighting was better.
If your going to spend less than 200.00 on a new machine you could do much worse. If you decide to not do the Bernette consider the Janome line next. (with an on-site tech)

Please don't use WD40 on your sewing machine, WD40 is an alcohol based cleaner and will do the opposite of lubricate. Take your machine to a certified Bernina Repair shop, they will have a look at the timing and lubricate all of your gears. Lubricant will dry out over time, grease turns to putty and oils turn to varnish after several years of non-service. Lint is attracted to moisture, moisture being those key areas of any machine. Lint acts like an oil wick and will draw out your lubricant from key areas. It then begins to attract dust and other nasty things over the years to become grit. Your motor begins to burn out due to stress trying to move all of these clocked gears, cams and shafts. Take your machine in!
