Bernina Virtuosa 153 QE Won't turn on

My Bernina initially turned on earlier today but now shows no sign of life. I've checked plugs, connectors, etc., and all looks fine. Definitely the machine. I live in Hawaii and it's about a 3 week wait until someone can service it. Any suggestions?

If you've got bad luck like I do, you probably blew out the circuit board! It took my Bernina dealer 4 months to get another from Sweden; thank goodness they gave me a loaner.
Unfortunately, it happened again right after I picked it up from the dealer, and they have to find another circuit board for it! It's not a problem with my electrical wiring because the loaner ran just fine.
It's very, very frustrating because I'm a small business and need my machine running!

Some one said if you use a different needle will damage the hook what is a hook i use a different needle for awhile how can you tell if you damage the hook i got a bernina 153 QE from a friend work good...


The hook is in the bobbin area and is what takes the thread from the needle to make the stitch. A standard 15x1 needle or 705 needle is the correct needle for your machine. They are available at ant sewing center.

Bernine 153 QE motor sometimes does not respond to foot pedal


If its not the footcontrol (which it probably is) it is most likely the circuitboard acting up. Needs a tech.

No power on foot pedal


There is no way to change brushes on theses sealed motors and I highly doubt thats the issue. Most likely you didn't put the bobbinwinder back togeather correctly. The small spring type clip under it needs to be in the second notch of the teeth below the bobbinwinder to engage/disengage right. If you had the cover off its also possible you disconnected the wire to the circuitboard for the footcontrol, I beleive its black and red. Probably best for a tech to look at it.
