Question about Bernina 1008
I have a Bernina 1008 and am having problems lowering the feed dog to free machine/embroider.
I have tried numerous times to turn the dial on the front of my machine to lower the feed dog and nothing seems to happen.
Is there another way to lower the feed dog without the dial?
Your machine needs oiling. The feeddogs are stuck. Could be in several places. You would have to remove the back and side covers to get to what needs cleaning and oiling. Especially behind that knob. Just removing the covers is a job so I can't recommend you do this unless your trained. But you can try. Don't forget the screws beneith the machine. But really, there is too much behind the handwheel for a novice to deal with. Maybe see if you can just let some sewing machine oil just run down behind the feedog knob and work it alot.
