SOURCE: Needle won't move on Bernina 930

If the machines motor is running but the needle isn't going up and down then the baste stitch finger is gummed up and needs to be serviced.  This is a simple fix and it happens all the time on those machines.  Take it to your local Bernina dealer for a standard service.  Also if you really need it in a pinch try pushing up on the needle bar that sometimes will fix the problem but it will still need serviced.

SOURCE: I have bernina sport 801 machine and need to know

You can oil any two metal parts that move togeather or through each other. Do not oil bearings and do not oil gears. Do not use 3 in 1 oil or WD-40. Use regular sewing machine oil.
801's were made from 1979 - 1982. The way Bernina dated these on the machine is by the serial number. Your number would probably start with a 0 or a 1. 1970 is a 0, 1971 is 01, 1980 is 1, 1981 is 11, 1990 is 2, 1991 is 21 etc. etc.

SOURCE: Bernina Bernette 65 sewing machine

I had the same problem. I'm a novice sewer. I just bought my machine. It did the samething, tension didn't work, the thread kept knotting up underneath, and the fabric kept curling up in the back.

I adjusted the tension knobs to no avail. Then it kept bothering me that it was curling up. I then decided to set the dials back to where the factory had them and adjusted the presser foot just a hair counterclockwise and I haven't had anymore problems.

The other day the needle almost broke because the tension was tight on the thread. You have to make sure that the needle is at it's highest point to get it to release the fabric so you have a thread tail.

This is my first purchased machine. I had a New Home years ago that was given to me, however it blew away in the tornado of 1991 in Kansas and I never replaced it. I really do love this machine. I don't believe I will ever want another.

The selector lever doesnt work on my bernina 1030 it will only sew straight and ziz zag stitch can it be fixed


Yes, most likely the mechanics are seized due to old oil that has dried. I have a 930 that I frequently clean & lube thoroughly to keep it running smoothly. The only thing is to stay away from the basting stitch mechanism (sorry, can't remember if your machine has it) located in the middle of the needlebar directly behind the take-up lever. Once you give your machine a good lube, you'll be amazed at how quietly and smoothly it runs.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

Here's a Service Manual for your machine:
https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1059902/Bernina-1030.html#manual

Only a caveat, but is generally recommended to NOT use compressed air to clean sewing machines. Frequently, it pushes the lint and dust further into the machine so a technician will have to clean it.

Bernina 1030 the teeth will not stay up and cannot feed material through


You should probably take it to Bernina for service. It could just be a matter of adjustment or tightening a screw. On the other hand, a general cleaning, oiling, and adjustment will probably run around $100-$125 which would be beneficial if it hasn't been done in a while.

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).
board-bernina-1030-yfctketow5dlawzorpkxttl4-1-3.jpg

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.
board-bernina-1030-yfctketow5dlawzorpkxttl4-1-6.jpg

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

Bernina 1030 needle not moving up or down


I believe the 1030 has a basting stitch, similar to the 930 Record. If the basting stitch is not run regularly, it may lock up the machine requiring a technician's expertise to get it working again.

I have a 1030 Bernina sewing machine and for the first time in 10 years the needle will not move up and down. It will go side to side. It stopped while sewing and won't restart. I have checked all of the...


Take it to your Bernina dealer, they should be able to determine what is wrong and hopefully fix it, free. You really do not want to do something that could void your warranty. My Bernina dealer is super nice and always helpful, they are very professional. I hope that it is just some silly thing, like mine was.
