Yes, since it is a electronic machine, it needs that board to make it work. If the board goes out, the machine becomes inoperable.

    Thank you.Further to my question, a service mechanic says that i would be able to use the Bernina record 930 after disabling the board, but the LEd and motor speed regulator will not work. I would appreciate your comment please, Thank You

    To my knowledge (and I have one), the 930 Records do not have an LED. You can sign up for the BerninaThirtySomethings Yahoo Group. There are former techs and very knowledgeable users in that group that will probably be able to help. I don't have the tech expertise to advise.

My bernina 930 speed has basically came to zero. the wheel is turning but the needle is moving very slow and even stops moving even when the wheel is turning. what could be the problem?


Um, how long since the last clean and oil? Sounds like the machine has seized due to old dry oil preventing things from moving. Avoid using the machine until the problem is addressed or the motor may be damaged. (Do this and you will be surprised at how nicely your 930 will run!)

I am looking for a bernina 930 service manual. I dropped the feed dogs and they will not come back up.


Most likely they have seized due to lack of regular oiling. I have used the following method on several older seized Berninas with great success. Just be sure to NOT get any oil near the 930 basting stitch mechanism (about the middle of the needle bar) or it will most likely lock the machine.

This is a diagram for the Bernina 830 Record, but it will give you a good idea of what & where to look for oil ports.

Can I sew a Blanket stitch with my Bernina 930 Record machine?


Once upon a time, a blanket stitch used to be a long wide zigzag stitch. If you are referring to an electronic stitch version that would look like the inverse of a blind-hem stitch, then no, this is not possible on the 930 record machine.
What is nowadays called a blanket stitch used for quilting applications requires the machine to stop feeding during the stitching cycle to allow for the single stitch to the left and then back again. An electronic step motor machine, common to all newer Bernina machines can do this and or similar functions. That being said, don't be thinking about getting rid of your 930. Better to get one of the newer units for occasional blanket stitching and keep the Swiss made 930. The Bernina 930 is a lifetime machine. Computers machines are not lifetime class machines by virtue of being computers. Electronics are short lived.

What is the difference between a bernina record 930 and just a bernina 930


At the present time, Bernina 930 Record and Bernina 930 are the same machine. Although, technically the name is Bernina 930 Record, referring to the mostly mechanical sewing machine produced in the 1980's. They are very coveted machines and one of the more popular models.

However, Bernina has, in the past few years, begun producing computerized machines and labeling them with the same numbers of older mechanical machines (makes things very confusing), ie Bernina 830 Record vs Bernina 830 computerized model. At this point in time, Bernina has not yet produced a computerized 930.

The Bernina 930 Record does not have a blanket stitch. It has a few decorative stitches that are similar, but not exact.

My mother left me her Bernia (record/electronic) sewing machine, but there is no manuel. Does anyone know where I can get the manual for it?


Hi, well you must have been your moms favorite. I'm guessing the Bernina she left you was an Bernina 830 since I think this was the only electronic Record unless the 930 was also a Record electronic.
You have a wonderfull machine. You can find the manual you want here at Berninausa.com ... http://www.berninausa.com/news_detail-n486-i2238-sUS.html . Look for the model number on your machine and click on it. You can download the manual there for free.

Bernina 930 Records are notorious for the basting stitch sticking which eventually locks up the machine. To prevent this from happening, be sure to run the basting stitch for a few minutes every month. If it is stuck, you'll need to take it to a Bernina technician.

If it is not the basting stitch, it could be a broken plastic gear (trip to the Bernina technician) or it needs oiling.

If it is not a broken gear, then it probably needs oiling. Your Bernina mechanical requires regular oiling and cleaning even if you don't use it (ie, every time you change the bobbin, every 8 hours of sewing, or every 6 months if not in use). HINT: recommend Bernina oil or similar good quality oil for mechanical machines, NOT 3-in-1 oil, WD-40, or cooking oil!!! One or two drops of oil in every oil hole and every place that metal part rubs against metal part.

Treat your Bernina well and it will serve you well for many years.
