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.

Hello

look at the cam gear. This is the unit that the cam connects to. It could have a crack or be split completely. If there is a crack the cam stack will have to be replaced. The parts are hard to get and a good technician is needed.

I have a Elna air electronic 68, I am not able to use different function. Like thr preprogrammed.


Your AE 68 will have three dials across the front, from L-R, stitch selector, stitch width and stitch length. To sew any stitch with a sidewise needle movement, you will need to turn the stitch selector to that stitch on the selector, then turn the stitch width to between 3 and 4 and the stitch length to a similar setting, adjusting to get the stitch formation you need. To sew with the discs, set all the dials to zero, then insert a cam into the Elnagraph on top of the machine. Then turn the selector to the disc icon, and the stitch length around to the "S" and stitch width to 4.

Don't use reverse if using the elnagraph stitches.

On my bernina 1008 the selection lever is all the way up but I want it on the straight stitch but won't move.


Are you able to remove the top cover of your 1008? The 930 has a "lid" that can be removed to access the internal mechanism. Am suspecting that perhaps the selector has seized from old oil solidifying. If able to open machine, apply 1-2 drops of liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube to every place where metal rubs against metal. Do NOT oil belt or nylon gears! Be sure to move the selector dials and levers and oil those moving parts too. To help speed things up, direct hot air from a handheld hairdryer into the internal mechanics.

The machine is stuck in zigzag cannon move control knobs


If the buttonhole dial has been rotated so that its indicator mark is not at zero (vertical aligned with the plate indicator mark), the stitch width dial will not function. Turn the buttonhole dial clockwise to the vertical mark.

The tension dials on my Bernina 2000DCE overlocker is not working, no matter where I turn the dials, the tension remains the same, a mess! Any suggestions?


Possible problems are lint between the tension discs. You can clean this with a business card. If the tension discs are not meeting together you must take the machine apart to adjust the spring tension. If all the tension discs not closing. If that is the case your presser foot tension release lever may be stuck.

When trying to change to the other sewing stitches the cams will not the the selector pass


doesn't sound like he tried real hard, my suggestion is to find a sewing machine shop that will take the machine apart & find out why the selector doesn't move, it's possibly a worn or loose or broken part, & the repair man is suppose to open the machine & find out what's wrong.

Buttonholing - Bernina 950 (semi-industrial)


This sewing machine looks exactly like the Berninas that I own, although my are not industrial. You just use the dial to make each side of the buttonhole, only having to set the stitch length to super small. The way you make buttonholes is this:

Think of the buttonhole as a square-ish capital O, with the center of the bottom of the O as the point where the button shank will lie when buttoned. Place the marked buttonhole area under the buttonhole foot, with this bottom point directly under the foot, squarely in the center of the 'hole'.
-Turn the dial to 1 and the long left edge will sew in zig zag stitches; stop the machine at the top of the O.
-Then turn the dial to 2 and the top edge of the O will sew; stop the machine after half a dozen stitches.
-Turn the dial to 3 and the right edge will sew; stop the machine at the bottom of the O.
-Turn the dial to 4 and the bottom edge of the O will sew; stop the machine after half a doze stitches.
-Turn the dial to 5 and run half a dozen stitches; this is a line of straight stitches that will 'tie off' the buttonhole.

Try this with a plain piece of fabric. Just put the fabric under the foot and dial away. You'll see how the stitches stitch.

I'll send a copy of instructions from my manual to you if you want. Email me at: pink8006@yahoo.com.
