Question about Bernina Sewing Machines

2 Answers

I had a Bernina Aurora 440 given to me to repair the machine runs for about 20-30 mins then the screen goes off. When you take the front cover off you can see 3 leds a 30v 12v and a 5v. The 5v led goes dull when this happens when you turn the machine off for about 30 secs and turn it back on again the machine restarts for about 5 mins then it does the same thing again my guess is it's probaly a circuit board or power board anyone got any other ideas?

This is a problem with the particular model. Bernina has a servi ce bulletin out on that issue and it should be under warranty. It needs a new power supply, or L-Print as Bernina calls it.

You correctly surmise it is a problem on the power supply board in the back cover - called an 'L'-print. You can change this for around £150 or, if you have some electronic knowledge, you can do the job much cheaper by identifying the 8-pin DIL chip nearest the multiway connector - it is labelled KA34063 - change this for a new one and it will cure the problem. Parts can be found on eBay for under £5.

How do I get my BSR to work on my 440QE? I plugged it in, but I don't see a light on the foot. Can't make BSR 2 work? BSR2 is on my screen, but won't run.


Try BSR 1. I have a 440 and only one of the BSR settings works--don't know why--just is.

Manual:

BERNINA aurora 440 QE Support BERNINA


Check to make sure the BSR is firmly plugged into the machine head. Don't know why they made this so difficult. I find I usually have to practically stand on my head to find it and then plug it in.

If it still does not work, perhaps Bernina did not calibrate the BSR to your machine. They recommend, whenever it goes for service, to be sure to bring the buttonhole foot and BSR so they can be calibrated.

Bernina 440 QE -- Freezing with blank display


Definatly it is an electronic issue. Have the cables checked to be sure there weren't any pinched between the covers etc. And that the plugs on them are seated properly. This they should do naturally. I have also seen this before when what is called the EEPROM chip went bad. Screen lit, no info. The EEPROM is a small chip, black and rectangular on the S-Print board,The EEPROM stores all the information for the machine to work. The screen will light but no info on the screen if its bad. Before replacing a whole circuitboard I would suggest replacing this. It just plugs and unplugs from the S-Print and much less expensive.
If your not feeling all that trustworthy if the tech can do it then ask that it be sent to Bernina in Illinois and repaired. It could take 6 weeks though.
