Question about Bernina Sewing Machines
I think I remember sewing 2-hole buttons on in the past. I've had my Bernina 1080 for 20 years now and still love it!
Yes, you can sew on buttons with a sewing machine. I apply some glue stick to the back of the button and stick the button to the fabric where I want it. Set the stitch length to zero. Then center a zigzag foot on the button, and carefully adjust the stitch width so the needle will fall in each hole. (Manually move the handwheel and adjust the width until the needle is positioned where you want it.) If you have a Bernina Embroidery foot, you can place a pin through the couching hole so the machine stitches will create a shank. Then slowly stitch with your sewing machine.

Set the zig zag the width of the holes. Do you have a button foot looks kind of like a half moon

Basically it is a matter of a stuck part. Flip open the top by prying up on the front or ends of the lid. You already noticed the hinges on the back. When you get it open, exercise the right hand lever on top (marked ZZ at bottom and 1-20 at top. If you look just to the right of this lever against the back wall you will see that it moves a little part back and forth into triangle shaped grooves. The part is not going completely into the grooves so drop some oil in there and exercise it a few more times, using your fingers if necessary to make the part move into the triangle grooves at the front and back. After a while it will loosen up where it should operate by itself smoothly . Hope this helps.

1.Turn the bobbin winder off.
2.You have to reverse the wires on the carbon brushes.
3.Make sure that you have the needle in correctly- with the flat side to the back. Those machines rarely go out of time.
