Lost Bernina 1090 operating manual

Anyone know where you can get one?  I found one for $42, including S&H, but that seems steep.

    Actually, I found a $10 PDF download.  It's for my sister -- her machine, so I'M not going to pay $42, and she's too cheap to do so.  She'll pop for $10, though.

Simple Can you get it on the Bernina web site? ask some one to copy theirs and you will play for the copying, You really cant expect it to be free $42 doesnt sound too bad considering how much info is in the book

Check BerninaUSA web site, select Support, scroll down to Out Of Print Manuals. IMHO, $42 is pretty expensive! Good luck!

How do I download Bernina 1090 manual?

The manual for the 1090 is not available through Bernina, although perhaps downloading a manual for a similar model may be helpful:

BERNINA Sewing Systems

Instruction Manual Bernina 1090

Bernina Instruction Manuals

There are some Bernina Groups on Yahoo who may be able to provide you with the manual you need. You'll need a Yahoo email account, then search for Bernina groups, and request to be added. Then you can post questions about your machine and how/where to get a manual.

My needle is not movin up or down..switched to zig zag and it moved left and right but no up and down..Im lost without it..whats wrong and how do i fix it? Bernina 1090 s

Have you oiled your Bernina recently/regularly? Consult your owner's manual under the Maintenance section. Sounds like the old oil may have dried and is prohibiting the needle bar from moving. Use good quality (ie Bernina) oil, not 3-in-1, WD-40, cooking oil, or the sewing machine oil from your grandmother's sewing basket). To help free it up, direct heated air from a handheld hairdryer into the interior mechanism of the machine, concentrating on the needle bar area.

Where can I get a manual for bernette fun lock 006D

Serger manuals for early machines are really basic.

Thread in order.

upper looper, lower looper, right needle, left needle. (see the inside of the looper cover door.)

Adjust tensions to suit the fabric you are sewing.

If you need to change colors clip threads near the spools and tie on new spools to previous threads and draw threads through an already threaded machine.

Bernina is the brand. But I believe early models of the serger were made by Juki. I've looked for the manual for 006 as well and found thinging. Your only other choice is find someone who has one for sale and ask for a scanned copy.... or order a new one from Bernina or one of the other places that has one.

My bernina (home art edition 160) needle just hits the case where the bobbin goes in, didn't know if anyone knows how to fix this?

if you've changed the needle & it still hits the bobbin case then it's a good chance the machine is out of time & needs to be repaired

My Bernina 1090 in which I have had for 20 years is not behaving itself! I will be sewing away and the stitch adjustment will just turn and no matter what setting it is on, the stitching will get...

if you just had it serviced & it has not been 30 days, I would take it back & have them check it again.
if that's your only sewing machine, I would recommend that you get another machine as a back up or a new machine & use the other as a back up

I have a mechanical & electronic sewing machine, that way if I'm servicing one I can use the other

Hello I bought a second hand bernina 1090. But it went wrong . No matter which button I clik, it doesn't sew the stitches i choose. I want to open the machine to have a look, but I tried to get off all...

I wish that I could tell you that there are free books available but I the least expensive service manual I found was $17.99, at, and an instruction manual pdf download for $10 at, you can try googling and see if you find more ideas. Otherwise it seems like you are in a bind because unless we could see it, I don't know how to help you.
