SOURCE: Bernina 930 won't zig zag
You will need to remove the top cover. 2 screws one of which is under the bobbinwinder lid. They only turn a half turn to release. After opening the top cover and if you watch what goes on inside from the top, move the top change lever you will see part of it goes through a fork or U-shape part. This part is probably stuck and needs some oil. After oiling and working it back and forth a bunch eventually it will start snapping into the notches its supposed to. I beleive then you will have your zigzag back.
Either that or you have the stitch width set on zero.
Hope I helped.

Pull the slide plate open and watch the hook (the rotating part under the bobbin case). It should move around with no hitch.
If it does not turn, it has a broken gear. The model 457 has a vertical shaft gear that breaks and it's easy to replace.

You might be in "Stopmatic" mode. Check if your pressure lifter bar is in the upper most position, if it is the machine is disengage and you are set to wind your bobbin. Lower it to the 3 o-clock position this will engage the machine and the needle will operate.

Heat the wheel with a hair dryer to loosen. If this does not help, you will need to visit an authorized Bernina dealer.
