Question about Bernina Activa 130
Bernina 130 Sewing Machine
While sewing, the needle broke off. I got both pieces of the needle so nothing is stuck in it. Then the bobbin carriage started making clanking noises. I took the bobbin case apart. Put back the hook and race and it still makes noise. It sews fine and the tension and everything is beautiful. But the noise is coming from the bobbin carriage (not the motor) and I don't know why. It's driving me nuts. HELP
If your bobbin area is making a noise, then do NOT sew with the machine until a reputable technician looks at it. You may have thrown something just a little off line - not enough to affect sewing NOW, but it could easily cause troubles down the line.
I suggest you call ahead and talk directly to the repair person - not to the sales person. Ask if you can bring in the machine while he/she is in the shop so they can listen while you run it.
You aren't trying to cheat the store out of the repair charge, just ensuring that the problem is diagnosed correctly.
You paid lots of money for this machine - it deserves good care.
