Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

On my Bernina Nova 900, I was sewing, and then it seemed to go slow, and then kind of just "froze". I can't turn the wheel or sew at all. It was just oiled. not sure what's wrong.

It's possible that a electronic part has gone bad or a part of the sewing machine has broken,, having the machine checked would be a good idea.

SOURCE: I was sewing and the foot pedal stopped working.

Take your machine in to a Bernina dealer for service. It could be you need a new foot pedal, or if could be something else.

Bernina nova foot pressure

The presser foot pressure is not adjustable on the 900 Nova and is not necessary with any Bernina models from the 117L through the 1630 series. If the presser foot bar is sticking so that it is sluggish to respond to the needle plate, the presser bar and bushings will need to be cleaned of oil varnishes in order to function properly. (99.9% of the problem)
The other potential problem although unusual, is that the machine frame has been damaged from a drop or impact, causing the presser bar frame bearings to be out of alignment, hence a sticking shaft condition. You do not want to attempt to correct this as you will likely ruin the machine. Suggest contacting a specialist

Bernina nova

Usually the Niva is a model 900 or a Model 1008 is not a nova?
If a model 900 there is a small hole in the bottom of machine that a small screwdriver can be inserted to rotate the speed regulator
I have often had to remove entire electronic board and send it in to BERNINA to have the electronics rebuilt. With
The Bernina 1008 the least expensive way to cure the problem is to purchase a newer style foot control and cord. In Canada about $99

On my bernina nova model 900, the stitches are not "connecting"

Make sure the needle is not bent or blunt and in the correct way round, failing that the machine may need retiming

Mi need 1 foot pedal for Bernina Nova 900

The cord and the control are sold separately.

If it is not working > bring the machine and the control to a Bernina shop for them to check, maybe it is the cord, maybe the control.

If you lost it you need to go to a Bernina shop and buy a new control and a new cord.
