Foot control units do go bad. Difficult to say what it could be. Some older Berninas have a capacitor in the foot control which fail. Also, some Berninas have carbon brushes that wear out. It's like a pencil lead, after use, it gets worn down so that it no longer makes contact. If you are mechanical, you may be able to find instructions and replacement parts online. Otherwise, talk to your Bernina technician.

FWIW, there are some Bernina user groups on Yahoo. One is called BerninaThirtySomethings (older Bernina "30 models) that has a lot of knowledgeable and active members who may be able to provide assistance, You will need to have a Yahoo email account and then request admission to the group before posting any questions or viewing the conversations.

My Bernina "Record" of 1972 suddenly stitches away without foot pedal command, infact same with pedal unplugged Only way to stop is cut AC power


Something with in your machine seems to be shorting out. Since it is many years old I suspect you have wires that the insuation is rotten and making a short. I have seen this before. Should get it repaired if it's worth it. You could be shocked or hurt.

FOOT PEDAL REGULATOR STUCK "ON"


I dont know about the Singer, but I frequently get this on older Bernina models. The foot controller has a suppressor capacitor across the regulator and, on the Berninas, these capacitors fail with age, mainly because they were not specified with a high enough operating voltage for UK markets. Depending upon model, this component might be separately wired directly across the switch contacts or might be on a small circuit board. It is usually rated at 250V - I now routinely replace these with modern parts rated at 1000V and never have returns.

I am trying to free-motion quilt using my Bernina 1530. Everything is fine until I quilt a curve or a circle. Then the thread on the back is too loose. I have tried adjusting the top tension, as well as...


I don't have the BSR (Bernina Stitch Regulator) and presume you don't either. I have found that I tend to move the fabric to quickly when sewing curves and circles. I did as you did and changed tension, stitch length...everything, but nothing worked. I finally found that the best solution was to SLOW DOWN on the curves. No problem ever since. I hope this helps you. If it does, please let Fixya know by rating my solution!

Bernina 830, worked fine until today... think it


there is a board inside the foot pedal that goes out sometimes you can check this by flipping the foot pedal upside down and at the top right there is a small hole where you can adjust the speed with a flat head screwdriver but be gentle it breaks easy, if its out you can take it to a bernina dealer and they might have a reapired one or they can send yours off for repair since that part is repair only

Bernina Activa 135 foot pedal problem


If you can get acess to or borrow another foot pedal to try I would do this first any of the Activa, Artista range fit to try. The fault may not be in the foot pedal but in the main CB of the machine. This can give a fualt of lights on but no motor drive. In this case the board would need replacing by a technician. Hope this may help.
