SOURCE: burned resistor, need value for replacement

I re-drew the schematics from the PCB-layout and did some backward engineering to determine the resistor value. The machine is now again in excellent working order.

SOURCE: I have a Bernina 1015,

Hello there,

Any resistor can fit in that position of the old resistor, you just have to ensure it is of proper fitting and size. Most of the time, it tends to be a capacitor that is burnt out and need to be replaced.

There are replacement circuit board and that should help you do the joband save you the arithmetic problems there on. You can get any type of resistor that carries the same resistance as the old one already does.

Most of these machines have 220V. I will strongly advice you replace the entire circuit switch in order to save time,and it actually is not expensive. The colours on the resistor actually do not really matter that much, it is for them not to get mixed up in the process of installing them on the board.

Hope this was helpful to you.

What type Of bobbins may be used in a Berlina 1130.

FWIW, genuine Bernina bobbins are frequently better quality than generic--some of the generics are flimsy metal and sometimes bent, misshapen.

Bernina 1230 nothing happens when pedal is depressed.

Hmm, wonder if it could be a board or ????? You've already tested the foot control and it seems to be okay, so the problem would appear to be in the machine itself. Does the light work? That may be another clue.

May be time for a service call.

FWIW--Here are a couple of posts on a Bernina group:

My Bernina 1230 has lost its electric connection. My mechanic says that I need a new power board for $270, $30 for shipping from Bernina, $100 for installation, and $70 for the initial service--a grand total of $470.

I bought a 1230 this summer and finally dropped it off for service with
a very reliable OSMG though not a Bernina tech.

He had the machine all tuned up and ready to go, decided to try it one more time, and the machine didn't move. Tried another foot control, and still nothing.

The theory is the internal circuit board is the problem.

I know that some of you have had local electronics guys fix the circuit board problem, instead of shipping it to Bernina headquarters."

Does the benina 1130 have a fuse

There are three fuses, all on the L Print circuit board under the rear cover.

F150 - main fuse on incoming mains supply
F151 and F152 - between the isolation transformer and the power supplies for the control logic, motors and lights.

If you are in the UK, then there's one in the mains plug too.

Bernina 1130 feed dogs won't feed fabric

On a Bernina 1130 the power on-off knob and the feed dog raise and lower knob look similar and are next to each other on the end of the machine, making it easy to lower the dog assembly entirely, without realizing it. Make sure you didn't accidentally lower the entire feed dog assembly by turning the feed dog knob: you can tell as you turn it if the dogs are up or down. On the Bernina 1130 the knob, like the power should be in the horizontal position to be working both feed and power.
