You will find a screw on the side near the top of your needle. Just loosen it and the needle will come out. Then put in a new one, pushing it all the way up with the flat side toward the back and tighten the screw. Finger tight is usually good enough.
Hope this helped.

Also you will want to put a piece of paper over the stitch plate so that if you accidently don't have a good grip on the needle it won't fall in the hole that the needle goes into when you are sewing.

You don't want any further problems & sometimes it's hard to get a piece of the needle out from under the stitch plate

My bernina activa 130 is suddenly making very fine, tight stitches. How do I solve that?


Remove the needle plate (by pushing on right rear corner of plate) and clean out any lint build up from the feed dogs and replace plate.

Can Bernina walking foot with soles and seam guided used on Activa 210 be used on 16 yr old Bernina Activa 230????


Please be advised that the newer machines (Classic models) such as the 130-180 and up, have a totally different geometry. This is to say that the older machines have a shorter distance from the center of the presser bar to the needle center. The newer machine design was increased to provide space for needle threaders etc. Older machines will use an older Walking foot model (still available).

Bobbin thread does not come up


Change the needle first and make sure it is in the correct way round, failing that the machine may need retiming

I have a bernina activa 130 and when you turn the wheel to insert the needle into the fabric the needle breaks. I am not sure what to check.


Check that your needle is centred when straight-stitch is selected and / or that you have the correct stitch-plate fitted. Is the needle breaking because it is hitting the stitch-plate or is it breaking when the needle goes down through the slot/hole in the stitch-plate. If you are sewing zig/zag or patterns, you must have a slotted stitch-plate fitted. If it's breaking when the needle passes below the stitch-plate, then take the bobbin /bobbin case out and the hook/shuttle and see if it still happens. If it does, the timing on your machine may be out and need professional adjustment. If it doesn'y happen after removing just the bobbin case, make sure the bobbin case is being correctly fitted.

What needle do i i need for a bernina patchwork 140 ?


The 130/705H needle system is standard across most domestic sewing machines so should be what your Bernina takes too.

How do you oil a Bernina Activa 130? The manual doesn't say anything about it.


Remove needle, needleplate, presser foot and bobbin case. Now take a lint brush and clean under the feed dogs and hook area. take the bernina oiler(must be bernina oil only) now place a drop just below where the bobbin case clip on and one small drop under the feed dog area. replace items, sew out a test sample and away you go.

Needle always stops in up position


I have the Activa 131 and while the needle is made to stop in the up position, all you have to do is push the bottom of the peddle quickly with your heel and the needle goes into the material and stays until you start sewing again. Hope this is helpful.
