If a model 900 there is a small hole in the bottom of machine that a small screwdriver can be inserted to rotate the speed regulator

Bernina 1030 the teeth will not stay up and cannot feed material through

You should probably take it to Bernina for service. It could just be a matter of adjustment or tightening a screw. On the other hand, a general cleaning, oiling, and adjustment will probably run around $100-$125 which would be beneficial if it hasn't been done in a while.

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:

My feed dogs all of a sudden will not feed the material through. How can I fix it?

Please provide specific information regarding your Bernina model. The older "mechanicals" do require frequent oiling--not just at the hook, but throughout the machine. (When they made these old machines, they didn't really consider that the machines would still be going strong 20, 30, or even 50 years later.) Could be the oil surrounding the feed dogs has dried and is preventing the parts from moving.

If your Bernina is a newer computerized model, you should probably take it for service.

NOTE: The mechanical machines use a different oil than the computerized models. Be sure to get the correct oil for your machine.

My bernina 1030 won't feed material

Make sure the feed dogs are in the raised position and that the presser foot has been lowered before beginning to stitch.

Something is wrong with bottom thread. It makes a mess of thread under the material when sewing. It seems to cut the bottom thread about every 5 inches and continue on.

First check that your needle isn't bent - it sounds like it may be dragging against the back of the hook. Dont 'pull' the material through - let the feed-dogs do that. Probably best to get it checked-out by a competent Bernina agent

My Bernina 2000D wasn't sewing properly so I took it in for a service. Apparently the plate was cracked & it was replaced with a new one. However, it is still not sewing properly,the material is...

Have it fixed under warranty of the service you had done.

There could be many things... including the timing and using too thick a material. Have the service company show you that it is working using your material.
