Question about Bernina Virtuosa 160

1 Answer

Input power We are moving to Singapore and looking at the sewing machine I see it is capable of 100-240V, 50-60Hz., but on the side of the case it shows a decal indicating 110-120V. Is there a user selectable voltage setting on the inside of the machine circuit card?

Yes there will be a selector switch inside the machine, this will be near the motor and is either a rotary or flick switch.

How do i move the needle from side to side please


Zig-zag? Set the stitch width to something larger than zero.

Needle Position? If your machine has the capability, there would be a needle position selector--usually for center, left or right. Newer machines would probably have more selections than the three.

Skipping stitches on bobbin thread Juki DDL555-5. any suggestions?


sounds like u have the wrong needle or machine is out of time. if its a needle feed machine u might have the wrong bobbin case. try lowering the needle slightly. machine is easy to time. theres a mark on the needle bar which u align with the bottom of the bar guide then loosen the hook (3 screws) and move hook till it just starts to meet the needle. careful of side to side movment. bobbin case has to remain in the finger.

case if it's a top loading bobbin
if it's a side or front loading bobbin make sure the bobbin case is
inserted correctly
if the bobbin and bobbin case are inserted correctly then

problem and needs to be checked at a sewing machine shop

Annoying solution, but works every time. Remove the ENTIRE bobbin casing from the base and then turn the wheel. The needle should lift right out. Reassemble bobbin casing and oil very well.

This generally only happens when you are sewing through several layers of fabric or though a thick fabric. If you are doing neither, the timing in your machine may be off and you will need to get it repaired.

Sorry to say, you probably burned up the motor (judging from the burning smell). The solution would be to replace the motor, but that might not be as easy as it sounds, especially if your sewing machine is computerized.

The black bobbin case that the bobbin sites in is not supposed to move at all, on the right hand side of the bobbin case you will see two screws, if you slacken them off you can push the guide bar closer to the bobbin case leaving enough thread to pass through the gap.

Wont change settings


Take out the needle, tighten the needle clamp screw.

Select the zigzag setting plus the largest stitch width, run the machine quite fast for a few seconds. Turn the hand wheel so the needle bar is at it's lowest, turn power off, get hold of the needle bar and move it side to side half a dozen times.

Turn on power, run the machine again as before.

Go through all stitch type settings zigzag/straight etc and run the machine in each setting.

If after all that the problem is not solved I am afraid you need a sewing machine tech to have a look at it.

It would be interesting to know the make of machine and how old it is, plus when it was last serviced.
Best of luck
