Sounds like the feed dog height is not set correctly. You could fix it yourself but you would need a dealers service manual and there is a height gauge that should be used although I have set them by eye...and experience.
Bernina's are fantastic machines and I have yet to find even one that is a lemon. Just like finding a good auto mechanic, you need to find someone that actually knows more than how to blow off lint and apply oil.
Your problem should be a low cost quick fix/adjustment that can be accomplished by a knowledgeable and skilled technician.
Good luck finding one!! Bill

SOURCE: Bernina 1008 feed dog problem.
Your machine needs oiling. The feeddogs are stuck. Could be in several places. You would have to remove the back and side covers to get to what needs cleaning and oiling. Especially behind that knob. Just removing the covers is a job so I can't recommend you do this unless your trained. But you can try. Don't forget the screws beneith the machine. But really, there is too much behind the handwheel for a novice to deal with. Maybe see if you can just let some sewing machine oil just run down behind the feedog knob and work it alot.

Your machine needs servicing. The feeddog mechanism is stuck most likely from lint or dirt in it. Pop off the needle plate and clean good there and inside the door to the bobbincase area. The mechanism is inside that door to the right an inch or so. Covers have to be removed to clean this properly. The height adjustment is inside in that same area also. Time for servicing.
Hope the top just needs a good cleaning. Good luck.

I thought this was free . . . didn't know I'd be asking to join. So, I called the shop where I purchased the machine. They were able to help me fix the problem.
