Question about Sewing Machines
Could you please advise if it is possible to retro fit a BSR to a 153QE. My boards are currently in need of replacing and I was hoping it would be possible to upgrade at the same time?

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.

First the simple solution. Make sure your needle is inserted flat side to the back and all the way up.
The only other thing I can think of is that your hook is out of time and this will take a technician to re-time it. You may need to take it in for a servicing.

If you've got bad luck like I do, you probably blew out the circuit board! It took my Bernina dealer 4 months to get another from Sweden; thank goodness they gave me a loaner.
Unfortunately, it happened again right after I picked it up from the dealer, and they have to find another circuit board for it! It's not a problem with my electrical wiring because the loaner ran just fine.
It's very, very frustrating because I'm a small business and need my machine running!

Bernina Virtuosa 150 pressure foot does not go down quite all the way. The stitches don't go straight and are not even. PrewettOE
