Question about Bernina Activa 130
I have a 830 Bernina Sewing machine and none of the zig zag stitches will work, blind hem, ect. Have any idea what the problem might be? I've had this machine for years and have never had any problems with it until now.
I would appreciate any help you might have.
Check to see if the cam stack gear does not have a crack in it. The other problem is the cam engager lever is does not engage the cam stitches because it is gummy. To solve this, lift the lid and follow the lever to where it make contact, add a penetrant oil. More the lever back and forth as fast as you can and work the penetrating oil into the area. It should click back and forth and snap between the back and front V's. One is for the zig zag and straight stitches and the other is for all cam patterns. Once it is clicking and snapping back add regular oil. Thensew out your pattern stitches. If the machine binds then you could have a cracked cam stack gear and has to be change by a Bernina service center.
