Bernina 830: When making a buttonhole... the zigzag #1 stitch on left side looks nice... then the #2 bottom bar tack looks good...


Please tell us which Bernina 830 you have--old mechanical Record or new computerized?

Here's a recommendation from a Bernina owner (Ellen Rosenthal on Yahoo Group "BonosBerninas":
I agree about the buttonholer. The reverse stitching never looks as good as the left or forward side. I “hack” this by pivoting my fabric and only
going forward-avoiding the reverse stitch. Also helps to do the whole process twice and to use some tear away or wash away interfacing.

There is another Yahoo group called "BerninaThirtySomethings" that is a great resource.

Bernina 350 buttonhole - when I hit the reverse button, the machine just keeps stitching backwards. It doesn't stop to do the tck and then go forward again.


Here's a video:

It looks like the Reverse button just needs to be "tapped." On my machine, if I hold the Reverse button too long, it turns into a continuous reverse until I deactivate it.

If it still won't make buttonholes, you should take it for service. On machines that have the "eye" on the presser foot, the machine needs to be calibrated to use the buttonhole presser foot. Be sure to take the presser foot when having the machine serviced.

I have a Bernina 830. Using #03 foot....bobbin thread through the hole in the arm of the bobbin. Why does it not go in reverse to finish the buttonhole?


If it is the older Bernina 830 Record, could be some of the parts have seized due to lack of oil. Frequently, seldom used functions (levers, dials, feed dog control) are the first signs.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

Be sure to move the dials/levers and apply oil there as well.

How do I make a buttonhole on a Bernina 1130 s


First of all, pull the bobbin thread thru the bobbin case finger before starting. There is a good explanation in the manual, p. 42-45. Use either the 3 or 3A Buttonhole foot. If you don't have a manual, go to http://danreetz.com/bernina/Bernina_1130_User_Manual.pdf and download and/or read.

Needle will not pick up bobbin thread (Bernina 830) despite tightening handwheel therefore no stitching. Have cleaned bobbin mechanism and have checked and rechecked bobbin threading. Have tightened


Make sure needle is inserted with the scarf(small indentation above needle eye) to the back and fully inserted. Otherwise it could be out of time which would require a technician.

How do I use the button hole foot on the Bernina 807 minimatic?


There isn't an automatic button hole on this machine. You can do it manually. Thread the bobbin thread as usual, but put it through the little hole on the hook in the bobbin case. Set the stitch length between 0 and 1, like a nice satin stich. Set the needle position to the far left and the stitch width to 2. Sew down the left side. Center the needle, set the width to 4 and lower the feed dogs, stitch about 6 stitches across the bottom. Then reverse the direction, set the needle to the right, stitch width to 2 and go back up the right side. Lower the feed dogs again, set a wide stitch and finish the top.

Another good option is to buy a universal presser foot shank from Bernina and then attach an old cam type buttonhole attachment from Singer. They make beautiful buttonholes and you can even do a keyhole button hole.

Old bernina 830 stitching problem: tight


Sounds like you need to adjust the tension. Probably a good idea to oil this older machine before you adjust. Also look for and clean out any lint or debris in bobbin case and around foot area.

Bernina Buttonhole foot #3A


Hi, you must have an 1130S which means it could also be a circuitboard issue. If the LED/LCD light for the buttonholer does not flash you either need a new RET-Print (circuitboard) or a new buttonhole foot. Sorry to say that you DO more than likely need a new buttonhole foot according to my manual on this machine. No way to repair the foot that I know of.
You should bring the machine in and try it first.
Guess not all news is good news. Sorry.
