Bernina 200 e freezing

I use my machine at least once per week if not daily and I have been experiencing the same problem for 4 months. the machine just stops working. the screen looks on but when pushing the pedal, it doesn't work. Sometimes a reboot makes it work but lately even that isn't working. My dealer has replaced the mother board 3 times and it seems to work for a while then just freezes up again. Bernina has not been responsive (my dealer has been). Tonight I bring it back again.

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks for ideas about Artista 200 freezing up on me. Do we know what the warranty is supposed to be? Have you appealed to the warranty? how did you do it? was it successful?

Ask them to replace the I/O print and make sure its upgraded to the latest firmware, also have them check or replace the motor depending on when you bought your machine these could be under warranty.

My new Bernina 880 will not turn on. I have been using it daily for the past week. Last used yesterday afternoon. This morning it will not turn on.

You might try a different electrical outlet in the house or check the one you plug your sewing machine into to make it is still working. Hopefully, there wasn't an electrical surge.

Bernina artista 200, how do i control the feed dogs?

Not sure what you are asking. The stitch length will determine how far the feed dogs travel (thus pulling the fabric) to create each stitch. There is also the foot (or knee) control that determines the speed that the machine runs.

The page 21 of the manual has that information:

Oil a machine that has been unused for 5 years

1. turn your machine few times by hand
2. mix your machine oil half and half with mineral turp, use that on all oil points, this will soften and help remove all hardened old oil,
3. run machine on few stitches on old rags to get rid of old oil
4. re-grease with your machine oil, run again and use normally.
5. re-grease machine on all points daily for next week or so and then, depending on the load monthly is fine

this should solve your greasing problem :-)

I have a juki ddl-8700 I use it for quilting. if I am standing on the needle side of the machine as I am sewing toward me it sews fine but as soon as I curve to go away from me it will stop picking up

It could be any of several things: 1. clean the machine... this is the first thing to do for most sewing machine problems. 2. oil the machine... you should be doing this about once a week to once a month depending upon how much you use it. 3. Change the needle and be sure you're using the correct needle for the application. For quilting, I usually use an 80 or 90 sharps. Be sure to use a new one after 6 or 7 hours of sewing. They get dull and can fail to pick up the thread. 4. Re-thread the machine, making sure you've got the bobbin in properly and all of the thread tension systems are set right. 5. take it to the repair shop... if all of this has failed, it's probably the timing being off and most machines need a professional to adjust their timing once a year or so if you sew a lot.

200E freezes up

A 200e that locks up usually need a memory and a firmware upgrade. The original 200's only have 32mb of internal memory. The upgraded mini print board that is used in the 730 has 64mb of memory. This 64mb board was used in the 200 as a upgrade and this stopped the lock up problem. Also over the years Bernina has improved the firmware and this also cures the lock up problem. The latest and probably last firmware version for the 200e is version 5, also called the cutwork version. The easiest thing for you to do would be to take your 200 to a dealer and have them install a 64mb mini print board and also upgrade your machines firmware to the latest version 5. Also if you have loaded embroidery designs in your machine, remove them as they use up the machines memory. When you get too many designs loaded even if you have a 64 MB board in your machine you can still have lockup problems.

My Bernina Artista 200 freezes up after working for an hour and won't move? the tech changes out the most expensive card $450!! and still same problem.

I hope you did not pay for it ! IAs a Techie, it is our responsibility to correctly diagnose. If he wasn't sure, it should have been sent to Bernina where it would be fixed!
