Question about Bernina Virtuosa 160
Most of the programmed stitches on my Bernina V. 160 don't perform as they should -- funny stitching, nothing like it used to work. It was cleaned and serviced a year ago and new hook installed. Can this be repaired/remedied??
As a Bernina tech I can tell you to try adjusting the stitch balance with the small knob on the side + or -. Just in little increments until they start to look right. Maybe this has gotten turned too far off. If this doesn't help (50/50), worst case scenario most likely the small gear has been jarred loose or has skipped a tooth to the stepping motor which means a tech will have to reset this and balance it from the inside. There are also steps to take in the service program but again this would be a job for a tech. I suggest you get the whole clean, oil and adjust as this would be included in that.
