How do I get the light bulb out of my Bernina 1130


The Bernina 1130 has two 6V/4W bulbs in it. They are on opposite sides of the presser foot. To remove the bulb on the left side (front of the machine) of the presser foot, you need to use the bulb tool to press up on the bulb and then twist it to the left. For the bulb on the right (to the back of the sewing machine), you need to remove the diffuser. Then remove the bulb by pressing up and then turning it to the left. I believe that the tool is the "special screwdriver" listed among the standard accessories. See https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1000128/Bernina-1130.html?page=6#manual . If you need a replacement, they are still available. One source is https://www.sewingpartsonline.com/light-bulb-changer-bernina-0013087300.aspx . You can buy the bulbs from this source as well.

There are pictures for this in the manual. See https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1000128/Bernina-1130.html?page=50#manual .

I hope this helps.

How do I change a light bulb in my Bernina 707?


I don't have a 707 but do have a 530-2 Record. Unfortunately, with some of these older machines, Bernina did not provide a very good method for accessing the light bulb. On later machines, the side cover would either be hinged or removable. If yours doesn't have this capability, the only way of changing the bulb is by reaching in with your fingertips, gripping, and turning the bulb to remove it and then installing the new bulb in the reverse manner (difficult for someone with big fingers). Sometimes it helps to use thin rubber gloves (like the surgical type), lightly moisten the finger tips to provide more "grip." There is also a sewing tool available that is somewhat like a pencil with a rubber suction at the end made specifically to help with replacing sewing machine bulbs. If you are creative, you may be able to fashion something similar.

Have you tried LED bulbs? I've installed them in all my Berninas. They provide a lot more light and do not get as hot as the regular bulbs--as well as, they supposedly last much longer! They seem expensive at the outset but if I never have to change a bulb again, so much the better!

In case you need it, here is the manual for your machine:

How do I change the light bulb on my Bernina 1530?


You might check out some of the older Bernina manuals to get an idea of how it may work in your machine. The 1260 is the closest manual available. Looks like your machine takes the same push-in bulb. So, you would push up on the bulb and twist. Then you would install the replacement the same way. Sometimes, using tight fitting medical gloves helps grip the bulb in order to twist.

BTW--I have older Berninas and upgraded their bulbs to LED.

This is supposed to be in the Manual.
The bulb looks link the one in the link below.

Change a light bulb in Bernina 1008 sewing machinge


If you still have original Acessories there should have been a grey or brown cone shaped rubber gripper that could be slid up on bulb to assist in turning it If not remove the side cover, then back cover to access the bulb. Some 1008's have push in bulb others screw in so be careful not to break bulb as you remove it
push in bulbs must be pushe in and rotated 45 degrees counter clockwise to remove. Of course screw in bulbs just rotated counter clockwise to remove

Board bernina 1030


As you will have noticed, you cannot open the end of a Bernina 1030.

There are two light bulbs on this machine, visible on either side of the needle bar and presser foot shaft. Viewed from the rear of the machine, you can see the one on the right but the one on the left is beneath a transparent plastic cover that slides out easily (but does not come right out).

To remove either of the bulbs, which are a bayonet fit, open the accessories box attached to the rear of the machine and take out the screwdriver tool from the top row, on the left hand side by the bobbin storage. One end of the screwdriver is a screwdriver (!) and the other end has a plastic tube - this is designed to grip the bulb.

Place the plastic tube on the end of the bulb, push a little and rotate anti-clockwise about a quarter of a turn to release the bulb.

The bulbs are both 6 Volts, 4 Watts. board-bernina-1030-yfctketow5dlawzorpkxttl4-1-10.jpg

How do I change the light bulb in my Bernina 1230 sewing machine? Is it made to be replaced only when serviced?


There is a small brown screwdriver/gadget that came in your accessory box included with the Bernina 1230. At one end, it is black plastic with a small point coming out of it. That end is used for tightening or loosening the screw that holds the needle in place. On the opposite end (brown on mine) it is hollow. This hollow end is pushed up and onto the lightbulb. (The bulb fits into the hollow.) Push up (firmly) and twist to the left to remove the light. To replace the bulb, insert the new one into the hollow spot on the holder and push it up and into the receptacle - twist to the right to lock it in place. There are actually two light bulbs, the one on the right is covered by a diffuser, but they both use the same procedure. It's easy to do and you are meant to be able to do it yourself. The pictures and instructions are on page 51 of the Bernina Guide. Hope this helps.
