Question about Bernina Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I need to have my 15 year old Bernina 1031 looked at for maintenance and repair. I use it on location for fashion alterations on-set and travel a great deal with it. I don't have any problems with it and just want to keep it in top condition, and haven't any idea where to send it or take it. I live in the New York City metropolitan area and work at a tailoring studio in mid-town. Thank you for any advice, I live in New Jersey. thanks, Trena

Hi, what's the difference between bernina 1031 and bernina 1031DC?


Everything that I find calls it a Bernina 1031 DC. Even the manual to download from Bernina's website says "DC."

How to Turn Off the Bobbin Sensor in the Bernina Artista 640


make sure you're using the appropriate bernina bobbin, others can confuse the sensor. This video(by Bernina Boys) shows how to clean lint to prevent this problem which is what often causes this error. Or go into settings by pressing the diamond with right hand arrow inside of it. The eye with the speaker next to it should get you where you need to go to turn it off.
The manual on Bernina's website is here:
https://www.bernina.com/en-US/SupportData/BERNINA-Nah-und-Stickmaschinen/artista/Manuals/031508-50-04_0601_a640_EN

page 98 has the information you want.

No motor sound with walking foot on Bernina 1031?


Keep in mind that that is not a walking foot... it's actually an even feed foot.

Approach your issue logically. Take the EF foot off and put your normal foot one. Does the sound return to normal?

If it does... keep in mind that your machine is exerting more effort to make the EF foot work. That can make a motor sound differently.

Need free! copy of bernina sewing machine #1130


Try this web site:
Bernina 1130 User Manual and Service Manual PDF

You can probably use the Bernina 1031 manual for most of your purposes. The 1130 is a bit newer and has more buttons.

I need a foot control for a Bernina Artista 165 machine, do any of you know where to find one? I have the power cord.


Try your local Bernina dealer....google or phone book, old fashioned, but it might just work !
Also any repair shop that services all makes may have a second hand one, so shop local first then cast the net wider.

Bernina Buttonhole foot #3A


Difficult to say whether your current foot can be repaired or even if a new foot is the answer. I believe the auto buttonhole needs to be calibrated to the machine, but not sure that is the issue with your machine.

You can sew a buttonhole without using a buttonhole foot--not really difficult as that's how it was done for many years before the manufacturers developed the specialty foot. (My machine came with a buttonhole foot but I still make mine the old-fashioned way because I determine how they will look rather than the machine making that choice for me.)

Practice a few times on scrap fabric and write down the stitch widths & lengths that work the best for you so you can replicate each stitch to look alike.

(also don't care for this type--don't like the look when the fabric is rotated and stitched across the end of the buttonhole--the bartacks on the other buttonholes is much more professional)
