I have a Bernina Sewing Machine with a Control Board that smoked

I have a Bernina Sewing Machine with a Control Board labelled L 1030 220 v 0686. The PCB has at least 3 failed components ; R17 -- a 3 watt Resistor; C40 a .1/250v Rifa Capacitor and C44 an Electrolytic capacitor 10 mf /450 v.

Bernina does not sell individual components for PCBs, rather they have an exchange program for the entire board. But you have nothing to lose and much money to save if you can obtain the parts and replace them yourself. You should be able to get the caps and resistors from any electronics supply.

Bernina 1230 nothing happens when pedal is depressed.


Hmm, wonder if it could be a board or ????? You've already tested the foot control and it seems to be okay, so the problem would appear to be in the machine itself. Does the light work? That may be another clue.

May be time for a service call.

FWIW--Here are a couple of posts on a Bernina group:

My Bernina 1230 has lost its electric connection. My mechanic says that I need a new power board for $270, $30 for shipping from Bernina, $100 for installation, and $70 for the initial service--a grand total of $470.

---
I bought a 1230 this summer and finally dropped it off for service with
a very reliable OSMG though not a Bernina tech.

He had the machine all tuned up and ready to go, decided to try it one more time, and the machine didn't move. Tried another foot control, and still nothing.

The theory is the internal circuit board is the problem.

I know that some of you have had local electronics guys fix the circuit board problem, instead of shipping it to Bernina headquarters."

What is the difference between a bernina record 930 and just a bernina 930


At the present time, Bernina 930 Record and Bernina 930 are the same machine. Although, technically the name is Bernina 930 Record, referring to the mostly mechanical sewing machine produced in the 1980's. They are very coveted machines and one of the more popular models.

However, Bernina has, in the past few years, begun producing computerized machines and labeling them with the same numbers of older mechanical machines (makes things very confusing), ie Bernina 830 Record vs Bernina 830 computerized model. At this point in time, Bernina has not yet produced a computerized 930.

When I tried to turn my Virtuosa 150 on, a light colored smoke came out of the top left hand side of the machine. What happened?


sounds like a capacitor, circuit board or something electrical has gone inside it; I'd suggest taking it to a Bernina service centre for deeper diagnosis as this is an electronic machine and more complex that a standard mechanical machine.

I have a 930 Bernina and it started to sizzle and smoke came out of it. It smelled real bad.


I repaired one last week for the same fault.

A component called a capacitor blew on the main circuit board. I was able to repair it but you may have to replace the entire board.

Expensive job but worth it as its a quality machine.
