Question about Bernina Sewing Machines
Hi this is a common problem with Berninas 930 - 1630. The problem is that there is a small pin that electromagnetically engages and disengages the needlebar when in basting stitch. If the basting stitch is not used much (or ever) the oil will harden or dirt will get in it and cause the small pin to stick. Therefore the needlebar will not engage. Possibly by softening it up with a blowdryer in the needlebar area (the slot in front) and tapping it etc. it might free up. Otherwise it jneeds to have a tech look at it. Its 50/50 whether it can be freed up from the outside. If a tech has to go to the inside and take it apart and clean it it could be more expensive. I always tell people to excersize their basting stitch. Use it or lose it. I hope yours will free up easilly. Time to have it serviced maybe. Good luck.
