Needle threaded is stuck in up position will not return 830 bernina


Bernina 830 Record??? Or newer Bernina 830 computerized?

If it's a Record, could very well need a good cleaning and oiling. Older mechanical machines need periodic lube to keep them running smoothly and quietly.

My Bernina 830 sewing machine makes initial starting noises but does not come on, anything I can check? I've already unplugged and plugged it back in.


Assuming it is an 830 Record (old mechanical, not the new computerized model). If it sounds like the motor is straining but the machine's mechanics are not working, then the machine has most likely seized from old, dried up oil.

This is the method I've used on multiple seized machines and works:

This is the oil port diagram for the 830 Record.

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.

I cant get my stitch Width Zig zag knob to turn om my bernina record 930. Any one have this problem?


Most likely because your machine has not been serviced (oiled & cleaned) in a long time and the old oil has turned to glue and seized. This is probably the most common problem with mechanical sewing machines. A mechanical sewing machine should be regularly maintained..ie every 40 hours of sewing use or at least every six months when not in use. You may want to take it to a Bernina service technician. Ask for a bottle of Bernina oil for CB hook machines and ask if they will show you how to oil it.

My Bernina 830 will not switch stitches. It says the number but shows straight stitch and sews straight stitch


Is it a new 830 computerized model or the older 830 Record mechanical?

If it is the 830 Record, it needs oiling--1-2 drops of good quality sewing machine oil (specifically concentrate on the stitch selector lever and oil the metal parts that move against other metal parts) Do NOT oil the cams, plastic gears, any rubber parts, ie belts, bobbin winder wheel.

My Bernina 830 sewing machine will not sew any of the decorative stitches.


Is this the vintage 830 record, or the new electronic model?
If it's the Record, flip the top open, and oil all metal-to-metal. Run for a full minute, oil again, and run another minute. It should start to work once the oil has been worked in.
