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.

I need a bobbin case for a Bernini 1090


Your Bernina dealer will most likely have one or you can often find them online (although they may not be genuine Bernina brand):

How do I download Bernina 1090 manual?


The manual for the 1090 is not available through Bernina, although perhaps downloading a manual for a similar model may be helpful:

BERNINA Sewing Systems

Instruction Manual Bernina 1090

Bernina Instruction Manuals

There are some Bernina Groups on Yahoo who may be able to provide you with the manual you need. You'll need a Yahoo email account, then search for Bernina groups, and request to be added. Then you can post questions about your machine and how/where to get a manual.

The jagged teeth on sewing plate are not moving to move the material forward. U will have to look under the machine to check out the mechanism that is supposed to move them and find the part that is the cause of no transmission of power to the teeth assembly.

Ny bernina 1090 will only sew in reverse


My bernina did this too. Put your finger on the reverse stitch button, and keep it there for a few seconds. You have pressed the reverse stitch button too long, and it has gone into reverse mode. Hope this helps. tich

Flywheel won't turn forward


You must have a small piece of thread stuck in the raceway that is probably why you can turn the balance wheel backwards but when you turn it forwards it jams again.

DO NOT LUBRICATE THE MOTOR!! The machine needs to split, ie the outer casing needs to be removed, inspected, and CAREFULLY lubricated. It also might be that as you have been sewing heavy fabric you could have knocked the timing out.
