Is it possible to replace the stitch length lever (22 in manual) on a bernina record 730?


Most likely. If the lever has been damaged, it may be found by picking up a machine (for parts or repair)--check eBay. Check with your Bernina dealer. Frequently, they will have parts from used machines.

Bernina 730 how do I change feed dog pressure it is way to high not touching fabric when down??? Help please


There are actually two Bernina 730 machines (confusing, huh?). One is the 730 Record from around 1960. The other is the more modern 730 computerized model made in the 21st century.

The 730 Record has a hidden pressure adjustment. Lift the top cover and locate the screwhead on the very left side (left of the takeup lever knuckles). This screw loosens or tightens the spring that applies pressure on the presser foot.
The manual can be downloaded here, although it does not show the pressure adjustment:

On the computerized 730, the pressure adjustment is on the screen (pg 37 of the manual):

Where are the carbon brushes located on a Bernina sewing machine located? It is a Bernina Record 730, B2-730, EPI 2 - 40 -0803, 85/37 W 7250/min. Thank you.


THE MOTOR USUALLY HAS A LARGE SCREW. WHEN YOU REMOVE THE SCREW THE CARBON BRUSHES WILL SHOW. THERE IS USUALLY TWO. YOU CAN TAKE THEM TO A LOCAL MOTOR SHOP TO GET NEW ONES.

try changing the needle--one for the fabric being sewed
also the zig zag could have a worn or damaged gear or cam
or there could be a timing problem.

My Bernina 730 record can only run the zig-zag stitch. The tech said the motor was "weak". Will replacing the brushes in the motor fix the stitch problem?


Sewing machines needs full service now and then (every 10 years will often do). The motor on the 730 series is actually as powerful as they get on domestic machines, and handles just about everything that fits under the pressure foot. Only if the machine has been used a lot over the years are the brushes worn down, but it might need new grease not matter how little it has been used. 

However, the stitch applications can sort of gum or clog up if the machine has not been used for ages. Take a look in the manual and oil ever point suggested every time you take out the machine. Try them now and then on slow speed, that might get every function to run smoothly again. 

This is as good a machine as any out there, favorably compared to any new machine under 500£. It sews perfect stitches on just about any material, and is well worth a full professional service (At a shop they will always recommend a new machine they want to sell you). All kinds of pressure feet and accessories are available in regular sewing shops and online.

Check with different shops for price on full service. This is a great machine what ever they tell you.
