Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Bernina Aurora 430 sewing machine that the sewing light and the display went out on at the same time. I assume the problems are related but not sure. Was told that the main circuit board was the problem but not sure and cannot get the part number. Any help?

That's probably true if there's not a fuse or circuit breaker on the machine. Alas, if anyone but a repair shop opens the case, you've voided the warranty, so I'd look hard for a circuit breaker on the machine and then if that's unsuccessful, drag it in for repair. With luck, it's a loose board.

I have been fixing Bernina's for 46 years and would not try to repair a board. Just saying. BERNINA has a replacement charge and gives credit for return of core and at a reasonable cost. ($150-250) Be sure you are dealing with a reputable BERNINA dealer

Probably too thick to feed without dislodging the bobbin case, causing the error message.

I get an electrical tingle from metalwork on Bernina Aurora 430. They say this is common and not a problem. That doesn't sound like a good answer!

It's NOT a good answer!! Sounds to me like you have an short in the wiring. Unplug the machine and check all the wiring connections. Replace any frayed wires and make sure the connections are solid.

Good luck!

The motor running noise is because your bobbinwinder is on. Flip the bobbinwinder to the right.

Hi, possibly your feedogs are dropped and in the darning position and/or its thinking you want to embroider and there is NO hoop attached or entire embroidery unit plugged in. Check your feedog button below the handwheel on the bottom.

Bernina 430 aurora will not sew, beeps when pedal is pushed...

If you took the door off check and make sure the lower thread sensor on the door is snapped on correctly. Many times it gets put on beneith the bar rather than over it.

I figured out the solution for this issue. It all has to do with the threading. And I mean literally follow the instructions word for word. Most importantly is the Bobbin thread. make sure to thread the bobbin through the case eyelet.
