the old needle broke off and is in the bar. theres a hole on the needle bar the allows u to stick a needle in and lever out the old broken needle. make sure the screw is loose. u can also rap the needle bar with a screwdrive handle to losen the needle. it should drop out, handy to have a small hemostat to grap the needle.
Assuming you have all the parts, the spring goes inside the little hole in the back of the mechanism. You then position the lever behind it, line it up with the bar that holds the lever, and put the lever pin back in. This is very tedious, and can be frustrating. You might consider paying for a new one.
I think you have to position the new presser foot under the shank then drop the presser foot lever down as if you were beginning to sew. This should snap the new presser foot right on. Be sure the little bar is positioned under the hook.
You'll need a 2.5 mm hex key metric (you can buy a complete set in Radio Shack for about $10 if you don't have metric). AND you will need to cut down the shorter end of that key about half way (total remaining end will be around 8 mm), as there isn't room for the whole key in that tiny space.
Open the light bulb door, it should be easy to see where it goes but you may need two pairs of hands.
If you take it into a Bernina dealer, they should do it for free as it takes like one minute! Hey...you can ask for nothing! Those guys have all the right tools but there's no mystery, so don't listen to any nonsense.
Are you talking about the feed dogs or the presser foot. Either way, if you moved a lever to lower them, there is probably a screw that either fell out or has become loose that holds the linkage to the lever.
If you or someone you know is
mechanically inclined, you will need to take five screws out of the
back including a hard to find one under the foot raising lever (lower
the foot), then one form the front that is under the thread cartridge,
and you will have to remove the bobbin winding plate cover which is
held by one small screw, and then remove a small screw from the support
Wow, that is good detail on the tube that fell out. If it is a brass colored tube that is open on both ends then you need a new crank slide. You may also notice that the take up lever can be moved up and down about a quarter to half of an inch. That sleeve can't be put back so that it will stay, and installing a new crank slide is probably something that you will want someone to show you how to do, not read from a manual. Is the small white wheel near the drive belt? If so, it is to hold tension on the belt. Let me know and I will look in one and can tell you where to hook it.
