SOURCE: Timing for Bernina Virtuosa 153
Timing these machines gets pretty involved such as in just removing the covers. You need a grounding ******** your wrist as the cables all need to be unplugged and you don't want to send a static charge from yourself to the circuit boards. They are expensive. Then you need special sized metal pins to pin several pinning points so the needle, hook, stepping motors and feed dogs all co-ordinate with each other. Also several places need certain guages to set less than .1 millimeter size distances between different places to avoid other problems. You also need several sized torx screwdrivers and the knowledge to adjust the upper and lower tensions. The upper tension alone has at least 3 or four places that need to be in the correct position.
All of the above has to be done in a certain order also.
Its complicated enough. If someone is going to walk you through this over the phone expect it to be complicated. Even if you had a copy of the manual (which could be a copywrite infringment on newer machines) you can expect it to be difficult.
My advice is to leave it to the professionals to have it done right.

your problem must be fixed by now but here is timing. If you are mechanical enough to pull covers off and find why the timing is wrong, A stripped gear or belt or a loose lock screw. Retiming: A new needle must go to the bottom and begin to rise. At this point the rotary or oscillating hook tip must pass through the escarpment on the back of the needle just above the eye.. Repeat for left and right hand needle swing on zigzag machines. There should be no space between the needle and the tip of the hook at this point. There may be needleguards to correct or limit this. Be aware the timing slip could just be the needle bar. Usually thst this be rotating the needlebar. If it mooves it will have slipped upward. Lower it according to the above. A n eedle always threads towards the flat on the top. email@example.com

If you have a zig-zag machine check to see if the needle is set to the correct position. If you are trying to zig-zag, be sure you have the wide holed throat plate on.

If you're having the same problem we did, the attachment is installed too high on the bar. Move it down as far as possible and see if that solves the problem. If it doesn't, check to see whether the machine is belt-driven; did the belt break or slip off?
