Question about Bernina BERNETTE 65 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I believe the Bernina's motor is worn out. It sews but at a painfully slow speed is smelly and heats up within a few minutes. (my mother was a professional dressmaker and used it extensively since bought new in 1957). Would re-wiring the motor fix the problem or should I look at replacing it. If replacement is the best option what model Berninas would have compatible motors? It is knee-controlled. Thanks for your assistance.

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.

The manual for the Bernina 930 is online..Check out Bernina's site for it. Sounds like yours needs oiling. My handwheel was very hard to move and I finally oiled that and it loosened it up very well. I'm not sure when I had it repaired why that wasn't oiled as the rest of the machine had been. Great machine.
