How do I remove the top on a Bernina 807 in order to chnage th elong belt ?

V-Belt replacement 801/801 Up Machines

Only the belt cover needs to be removed for this belt change. This is done by removing the three screws on the end/belt cover. Loosen the 5mm Allen socket head screw below the step pulley to relieve the belt tension. Remove the lower motor belt. Lift the step pulley and slide off the hand-wheel, (assuming that you have already removed the release knob and clutch ring).

Additional top cover removals 807/801 Minimatic machines

Early 807 machines had two expansion nipples in the top cover that fit into receptor holes in the upper arm frame. Simply pull up the top cover.

Very late models may have a push button latch mechanism, same as on the 801 machines except those fitted with carrying handles, i.e. 801 Sport, 810 machines.

This is accessed by opening the light cover and finding an aluminum knob in the upper left hand corner of the upper arm frame. Push this in and the cover will release. Lift off the top cover.

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.

Try They carry a lot of parts for new and old machines. If they don't show it on their sight, drop them an email or call them. They may surprise you.

How do I use the button hole foot on the Bernina 807 minimatic?

There isn't an automatic button hole on this machine. You can do it manually. Thread the bobbin thread as usual, but put it through the little hole on the hook in the bobbin case. Set the stitch length between 0 and 1, like a nice satin stich. Set the needle position to the far left and the stitch width to 2. Sew down the left side. Center the needle, set the width to 4 and lower the feed dogs, stitch about 6 stitches across the bottom. Then reverse the direction, set the needle to the right, stitch width to 2 and go back up the right side. Lower the feed dogs again, set a wide stitch and finish the top.

Another good option is to buy a universal presser foot shank from Bernina and then attach an old cam type buttonhole attachment from Singer. They make beautiful buttonholes and you can even do a keyhole button hole.

Bottom thread showing through in a loop

If you had just changed the thread, try re-threading or just raise the presser foot (this opens the tension) and pull about 6 " of thread through the needle.

Foot down closes the tension to the setting you have selected.

If this does not work, the machine will need to go into the shop.

Berninas hold their value better than any other brand, so be sure to go to an authorized Bernina dealer for service and repairs.

I have a bernina minimatic 807 (old), and am trying to change the bulb. It is really it out, in pieces, but it'd be really nice to take the door off...which I think I can if I can lift the top. ...

Not a solution, but a question:
I too have a Bernina 807. I can get a bulb in but I can't find a bulb that works. Every one that I put in blows. Do you know what kind I need?

What is the difference between a bernina and a bernina minimatic?

Nothing at all apart from a few patterns and the size of the machine.

Hello, Have you an instruction manual for the Bernina 807 sewing machine. Thank you. Regards, T.W.

I went to and there they listed manuals for the Bernina 820 and 830 only. Maybe the manual is close enough for your model.

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
