SOURCE: Lights turn on but foot pedal stays dead. Needle

If you know someone who is savvy in the mysteries of electricity, ask them to test the foot pedal to see if it is working and the socket on the machine to see if it is receiving power.

If you need a new foot control pedal - check the Internet for best prices - you will need the machine's model number.

If you take the machine to a dealer for service, ask what it will cost before making the trip.

The bench rate for just looking at the machine may not be worth it.

SOURCE: Sewing machine handwheel turns and whirrs but needle bar stuck?

my suggestion is that the machine needs to be serviced at a sewing machine shop, because for 1.it's not responding 2. it used & you don't know when the last time it was serviced 3.something is wrong with the machine.
hopefully there are no broken parts, but having the machine serviced will tell that.
as for a manual

Go to the singer website
Go to the home page
Go to customer service--click on it--it will show a small menu--click on instruction manual
In the box put the model number (example w510 ) & click search

What is smart pedal foot control for Bernina? I have a Patchwork Edition 140 and needle stop down should be controlled by pedal according to shop. I don't understand.


The foot control you are talking about will activate the needle down function on your machine. You need to press down on your heel on the foot control. This was the precursor to the automatic needle up/down option that is found on newer sewing machines that will automatically stop with the needle in the down position.

My Bernina "Record" of 1972 suddenly stitches away without foot pedal command, infact same with pedal unplugged Only way to stop is cut AC power


Something with in your machine seems to be shorting out. Since it is many years old I suspect you have wires that the insuation is rotten and making a short. I have seen this before. Should get it repaired if it's worth it. You could be shocked or hurt.

The handwheel will turn manually but it will not move using the foot pedal. The sound it makes when I press on the foot pedal *sounds* like I am filling the bobbin.

Old Bernina 830 walking foot not pulling item through.Lever not letting foot down completely but can push it down the rest of the way with my fingers


Hi Linda:

Does your 830 have a black needle clamp and screw instead of the standard nickel plated clamp? If not, the walking foot forked driving lever may be damaged by having used the machine with zigzag engaged. Another problem with older 830 machines is that the needle clamp has been repeatedly tightened very tight, causing the needle bar base to become damaged so that the clamp is no longer perpendicular to the direction of sewing...In other words, the clamp sets crooked on the needle bar.
The black clamp made for the walking foot had a specific diameter for the forked driving lever of the walking foot. The black clamp was also longer so that when using a wide stitch width, the driving fork of the walking foot did not collide with the needle bar clamp screw on the right side.
Please reply with your observations.

Bernina 1030 starts by itself and runs very slowly some time after parking the needle at the top


This is most likely a fault in the foot control. Normally supplied with this machine is a Type 10 and this can be fixed quite easily but probably not by the machine's owner unless you have some electrical and mechanical experience.

If you have knowledge of and access to a multimeter, you can test it. What working properly, you will find the following:
Pedal released: resistance is infinite (anything around 4k Ohms or less and the machine will run).
Heel pressed: resistance is about 10k Ohms.
Toe steadily pressed from nothing to all the way down: resistance is infinite then after a small depression, jumps to about 4k Ohms steadily decreasing to zero as the pedal reaches all the way down.

Your problem, being at the point where the pedal isn't pressed suggests that there's some contamination in the pedal. It's also possible that you have a type 365 pedal (as used on the 930) and this is more likely to give this kind of trouble due to the use of carbon brushes in this foot pedal.

I need a Bernina 830 foot pedal. The machine is approx 26 years old, but in excellent condition. If there are no Bernina pedals available, are there any other that could be used or adapted??


You can fit any foot control providing you only have two leads coming from the control, you should be able to get a replacement Bernina control on www.sewingonline.co.uk/instructions
