SOURCE: Zig Zag Stitch not working
THis problem occurred as I was sewing on Neoprene. I was using Gutterman all-purpose thread and a size 80 needle. Tried switching to a size 70, then to size 90. Still unable to zig zag. After inserting a test sample of cotton, the zig zag worked perfectly, so I knew it was not a mecahnical problem. I switched needles again. This time to size 90 for stretch fabric. Voila! Problem solved.

Take the machine to an authorized Bernina dealer for service - make sure to fill out the service slip with any problems you are having.

If you can't get any particular pattern once you have selected it and set the stitch width it might be wise to take the top off and have a look at the nylon cam stack to see if there is a split in it.

Simple things first, check the needle to make sure it is perfect, if you can select all the patterns and the needle moves from side to side but does not pick up the thread then it could be a timing issue and you can email me for attachment of instructions, if the needle is not moving side to side when you select a pattern then it may well be a split camstack.

SOURCE: The machine is not stitching
If the bobbin thread is coming up to the top, then the thread is not under tension correctly. I think that this is a top loading bobbin so the bobbin will go into the bobbin holder, then you pull the thread back and press it into a tension device - should hear it click into tension. Now pull the thread back towards you and it should not come out of the tension. The bobbin should turn anticlockwise as the thread is pulled from it.
These bobbin holders usually will have a small adjustment dial on them and it should have the standard setting marked in red. It is very unusual that you would need to change this but check that it hasn't been messed with perhaps. If you have the machine manual check where they say the dial should be set. More likely that the thread is just not into tension fully or at all.
The manual may give you other troubleshooting tips too.
A good resouce is www.sewing.about.com for general machine tips, cleaning and threading issues.
Hope this helps.
