My Bernina 830 will not switch stitches. It says the number but shows straight stitch and sews straight stitch


Is it a new 830 computerized model or the older 830 Record mechanical?

If it is the 830 Record, it needs oiling--1-2 drops of good quality sewing machine oil (specifically concentrate on the stitch selector lever and oil the metal parts that move against other metal parts) Do NOT oil the cams, plastic gears, any rubber parts, ie belts, bobbin winder wheel.

Why is the top thread on my 830 bernina bunching on the bottom?


The top thread has no tension or not enough. Check to make sure the top tension is going through the tension disc by giving a light pull when the foot is down. When the foot is up there shouldn't be resistance. Start at a setting of four and adjust as you need to.

How do i adjust thread tension


Depends on your Bernina model. Some of the older mechanical models (830 Record, etc), the thread will wrap around a tension knob which you can turn right to tighten or left to loosen. The newer mechanicals, the thread passes through a slot at the top of the machine which is the tension disk, but somewhere nearby there is a dial to increase or decrease the tension. The computerized models, the tension is adjustable on the screen.

Old bernina 830 stitching problem: tight


Sounds like you need to adjust the tension. Probably a good idea to oil this older machine before you adjust. Also look for and clean out any lint or debris in bobbin case and around foot area.

Bernina 830 old style need replacment part -under extention table


The clamping yokes for Bernina sewing tables for models 830 and earlier models were hand fitted parts. Welding this may change the geometry so that the table may not fit at all. Additionally the material is diecast AL, not cast iron, and may or may not accept TIG welding applications.

My machine Bernina 830 does not run.


Hi Rose Mary,

I'm assuming you are talking about the original Bernina 830 (their newest machine is also an 830!)

If you've not had your machine professionally serviced in awhile, it could be as simple as a good, thorough cleaning and adjusting. Your machine should be professionally serviced about every 1-2 years....not a bargain service that blows out the dust and puts oil on the hook, but a service that checks all the gears for wear, adjustments, hook timing, feed timing, grease for the gears (if required), removes lint build-up deep in the machine - very thorough.

There are various gears in the 830 that control these functions. It sounds as if one of the gears may be either broken or jammed. Unfortunately, unless you are trained in machine repair, this isn't something you should attempt. When gears are replaced or adjusted, generally the timing of the machine must be reset as well.

We would recommend that you take your Bernina to your nearest authorized Bernina dealer (they'll be trained on your specific machine and have easy access to any parts that may be needed).

If you do not know a dealer in your area, you can search on the Bernina website.

The original Bernina 830 was one of the greatest models Bernina has made and is well worth putting the money into keeping it running. Great machine!

Hope this helps narrow down what may be happening.

Happy stitching,
Kim & Linnette
