there is a board inside the foot pedal that goes out sometimes you can check this by flipping the foot pedal upside down and at the top right there is a small hole where you can adjust the speed with a flat head screwdriver but be gentle it breaks easy, if its out you can take it to a bernina dealer and they might have a reapired one or they can send yours off for repair since that part is repair only

there are two screws on the top one by the bobbin winder and the other by the take up lever, you should be able to adjust it from there

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.

in order to assist you more I have a lot of questions
-did you remove the shuttle to see if something is caught in the race area where shuttle rotates back and forth? If there is thread caught in this area or a broken needle jamed in there it will lock up the machine, go to the instruction manual and it will show you how to remove and replace the shuttle
- Did you remove the needle to be sure it is not a bent needle?
-does them top lever (1-20) move freely and if you open this lid (tip it backward)look to be sure the above lever is in fact activating the "Fork" inside the machine so that it activates and deactivates the fancy stitches
-have you ever oiled the hole behind the feed dogs? when you remove the open arn lid it is located behind the feed dogs. if not it may be siezed due to being very dry
Get back to me if you still have questions , I have feen fixing these machines since 1971 and I know nothing better
