Question about Bernina Sewing Machines

1 Answer

How can I take the back of my bernina 1030?

The wheel started to squeek and then turn really hard, finally it stopped moving altogether. When I peer throught the thread take up hole I can see a place where thread is twisted around. It looks as if it has jammed the turning mechanism. I would like to take the back off and try to clear the twisted thread. I took 4 screws from the back and 2 from the hand wheel. It still is held together on the bottom left side. I would like to take this panel off.

SOURCE: balance wheel is totally jammed

machine was working fine when suddenly it just jammed up. Everything seems to be fine, but the balance wheel is completely jammed rigid. I've looked at the shuttle and there are no thread jams at all. The needle moves fine from side to side with different stitch selections, but wont go up and down with the wheel.
I have tried looking in the machine, but I can't find any thread jammed.

I have a Bernina 1030 and the size of the straight stich knob is jammed it willonly turn back to 1 which means it will not straight stich just a small zigzag. Can you please help.thanks Joy


I suspect the machine's stitch selector mechanism has seized due to old, dried oil. (I have a 930 and several older Bernina models, and oiling thoroughly and frequently is necessary to keep these nice mechanicals running smoothly.) However, if the knob on the straight stitch selection lever is frozen, you may need to take it for service if you are unable to free it on your own.

My bernina 930 speed has basically came to zero. the wheel is turning but the needle is moving very slow and even stops moving even when the wheel is turning. what could be the problem?


Um, how long since the last clean and oil? Sounds like the machine has seized due to old dry oil preventing things from moving. Avoid using the machine until the problem is addressed or the motor may be damaged. (Do this and you will be surprised at how nicely your 930 will run!)

My bernina 1030 is not feeding the fabric, it is sewing in one place


Make sure your feed dogs are not set for free motion or darning. Once you switch them to regular sewing you will need to turn your hand wheel 1 rotation for them to come up. Also make sure that your stitch length is not set at 0.

The upper thread is constantly breaking. Don't know how to fix it. Any suggestions?


Check the tension for upper thread and bobbin(tiny screw to turn anticlockwise to give less tension)

Please could you tell me the age of the Bernina 1020 and the 1020


Find the serial number, engraved into the metal on the back of the machine or low down on the hand wheel end.

First digit is the decade: 1=1970's, 2=1980's, 3=1990's
Second digit is the year in the decade.

E.g. my 1030 is 27230888 so it was made in 1987.

Bernina 1030 needle not moving up or down


I believe the 1030 has a basting stitch, similar to the 930 Record. If the basting stitch is not run regularly, it may lock up the machine requiring a technician's expertise to get it working again.

Take it to your Bernina dealer, they should be able to determine what is wrong and hopefully fix it, free. You really do not want to do something that could void your warranty. My Bernina dealer is super nice and always helpful, they are very professional. I hope that it is just some silly thing, like mine was.

When cleaning my Bernina 1030, I took the plate out and cleaned the inside bobbin area, now the feed dogs will not come back up. any ideas?


How about turning your handwheel at least 2 complete revolutions towards you? It works on Singers, maybe you can be lucky and have it work for you. Good luck

Bernina 707 wheel is hard to turn


If the handwheel on your Bernina 707 is hard to turn, it most likely needs a good cleaning and oiling. Old oil dries and tends to get gummy, causing the moving parts to be stiff.
