Resetting factory settings in some models will only reset the settings of the machine and does not effect the stitch memory.
to clear the stored stitches from memory try the following.

press «clr/del» and left / right arrow
button at the same time
• release both buttons
• leave Memory by pressing the
Left / right button
• Memory is now completely
deleted

You can hold a max of 30 stitches in memory on most models.

SOURCE: Bernina 730 Can't open top cover !

The problem is that of a stuck piston detent on the pattern selector support that snaps the top cover closed.

  1. Open the light cover
  2. Apply pressure with thumbs on the bottom edge of the top cover on both the right and left sides of the cover. The cover should pop up...Too much pressure on the left side, (if this thing is really stuck) and you might break the top cover at the thread tension slot. Be careful here....
  3. Add a drop of acetone (fingernail polish remover) to the piston detent and work it free by pushing it back and forth. Avoid getting any acetone on the painted surfaces of the machine.
  4. Continue to work free, repeating with a few drops of acetone, and wipe clean. Don't oil this part. It was a petroleum product combined with a galvanic process (aluminum and steel) that caused the problem in the first place, not to mention age.
  5. Use DTE Heavy Medium oil rather than a white or clear oil when you lubricate your machine. White oils are unstable and will oxidize (decay) much more quickly. Also avoid 3 in 1 oil and stuff like WD40....very bad....
  6. Oil 1/2 a drop on those prescribed areas. Too much oil is more harmful than not enough....
  7. Contact your Bernina dealer for this oil.

SOURCE: I have a faithful 730 Bernina and currently the bobbin thread keeps breaking. Please advise what may be causing this. Thanking you.

Bobbin thread breaks
1. There is a right way & wrong way to insert the bobbin in the case --when you insert the bobbin in if it doesn't stitch correctly turn the bobbin over see if that helps or bobbin case is not inserted correctly
2. Lint has collected in the bobbin holder
3. The bobbin is damaged & doesn't turn smoothly
4. Lower thread tension is two tight

here's a free manual

Bernina 730 how do I change feed dog pressure it is way to high not touching fabric when down??? Help please


There are actually two Bernina 730 machines (confusing, huh?). One is the 730 Record from around 1960. The other is the more modern 730 computerized model made in the 21st century.

The 730 Record has a hidden pressure adjustment. Lift the top cover and locate the screwhead on the very left side (left of the takeup lever knuckles). This screw loosens or tightens the spring that applies pressure on the presser foot.
The manual can be downloaded here, although it does not show the pressure adjustment:

On the computerized 730, the pressure adjustment is on the screen (pg 37 of the manual):

Bernina 730 Record Service manual


Service manuals are difficult to find for most sewing machines, which Bernina is not an exception. However, there is a Yahoo Group called "BerninaThirtySomethings" that has conversations, documents, photos, etc. for the vintage Berninas including the 730 Record. You can join the group (must have a Yahoo email account) and download a variety of documents including a "Setting Manual" for the 730.

I just bought a 730 Bernina sewing and embroidery system. I just tried to send design to embroidery machine and got the message I have no memory left. How can I add memory?


My suggestion is to transfer unused designs onto a USB stick or connect your sewing machine to your computure and save them.Then you can delele them and have enough space to put additional designs on your machine.You can call your dealer and ask, but I dont think it can be done without sending it back to the manufactor. If it can be done it would know doubt be fairly expensive.

With embroidery card inserted into module, no motifs appear on the display screen.


Here are two other possibilities other than electrical problems with your Bernina. There are embroidery design cards that were made for the 200 & 730 that simply do not work in a 180. There is nothing marked on the card or the packaging that will tell you what model machine the card will work in. I sold a bunch of my design cards on eBay last winter and I tested all of them in both a 730 and a 180 before making the ad discription. I found that most of the design cards worked in the 180 & 730, but there were a few that only worked in the 730. So if your design card is one of those that won't work in a 180, that could be your problem.
You did not say if you have other design cards that do work or there is only one you tried. Possibly the card itself is bad.
A static shock to the card could possibly damage it.
So if you take your machine to a dealer to have it looked at, take your design card along.
The 180's memory for storing designs is located in the embroidery module, not the machine itself. If that memory is filled up with other designs this can cause a problem.
So your problem is most likely with the design card or with the embroidery module. Should you need to get another embroidery module, that module needs to be the same version number as your machine or it will not work. I have a. video posted on YouTube that shows you how to check the version number of your machine and module. That information is in my "Bernina check hours 165, 170, 180, 185" video. Put that in the YouTube search box and you will find my video. Plus I have other helpful Bernina videos posted.

try changing the needle--one for the fabric being sewed
also the zig zag could have a worn or damaged gear or cam
or there could be a timing problem.
