I have a Bernina 1030 and the size of the straight stich knob is jammed it willonly turn back to 1 which means it will not straight stich just a small zigzag. Can you please help.thanks Joy

I suspect the machine's stitch selector mechanism has seized due to old, dried oil. (I have a 930 and several older Bernina models, and oiling thoroughly and frequently is necessary to keep these nice mechanicals running smoothly.) However, if the knob on the straight stitch selection lever is frozen, you may need to take it for service if you are unable to free it on your own.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

Stitch selector knob on bernina 600, not Deco, is stuck and cannot select needle position, However the width of stitch part of the knob is working.This knob has 2 parts, needle position and width control

Your machine (Bernina 600 Record) has most likely frozen (seized) due to lack of regular maintenance. Don't panic. It can be fixed with a lot of elbow grease, good quality oil and a hairdryer. The following method has resurrected several Berninas I've picked up as "nonworking."

How do you oil this machine?

Consult your owner's manual in the Maintenance Section. Clean and oil ONLY as directed. Use good quality sewing machine oil (preferably Bernina Oil made for your specific type of sewing machine) and use only 1-2 drops of oil in each spot.

How do I oil the machine. I have looked in the manual and it doesn't show anything at all on this subject. unless I missed something.

There is little to no maintenance on this machine in general. The machine is fitted with oil impregnated sintered (powdered metal) bearings that are self lubricating. About 12 to 15% of the physical volume of such a porous bearing is oil. Adding additional oil will not absorb into the already oil saturated bearing, so adding oil will only create problems such as a messy oily machine and subsequent oil varnishing on parts.
However, the front cover on the needle bar end of the machine can be removed for lubricating the take-up lever and needle bar mechanisms. The balance of the machine should be left as is without oil. Periodic removal of lint with compressed air is advisable in the hook and bobbin case area.
Over the years, it has been found that over lubrication is more harmful than under lubricating Bernina machines.

You can not connect the Deco 600 to a computer. Buy the Brother PED-Basic software rather than the Magic Box, Brother makes the Bernina Deco...

Need a manual for bernina bernette deco 600 and more information on the machine.

Yes, I need a manual for the Bernia Bernette Deco 600. Following the death of my daughter, My grand daughter said she did not want any of her mom's sewing equipment. I kept them for her and now she feels she would like to have the embroidery machine. However, we were unable to locate the manual for the deco 600. I am unable to locate one on line...only good reason...due to my inexperience at the computer I am unable to locate a manual for her. Any assistance you can give me will be greatly appreciated.
Sincerely Nana Helen

I have s Bernina deco 650 embrodiery machine and the stitches won't catch. I had this machine serviced before I moved from SD to an eastern state. It was sewing fine and just started making a noise like it...

Your timing is out in the bobbin area this will have to be reset, maybe the last time that you used it you had a cotton jam, and it was pulled out of alignment.
