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!

Please supply a WORKING LINK for the Bernina Vertuosa 155 Owners manual PLEASE PLEASE


The manual is not available on Bernina's web site. So far, the only thing I've found is the Bernina Owner's Workbook (for several Berninas including the Virtuosa) that may be helpful:

You may also try checking out some Yahoo Bernina Groups. You'll need a Yahoo email account, then search the Bernina Groups, and request admission. From there, you can post your questions as well as view the various documents that have been stored. Some groups have great manual libraries and very knowledgeable, helpful individuals.

Bobbin thread tangling into knots on my Bernina QE 153


Its possible, refer to your machine manual to adjust the tension. You might need to change your needle to fit the thread you are using.

I have a Bernina 153 QE Virtuosa. The bobbin carriage is noisy. When I notice that it is suddenly sounding smoother, I can be sure it has run out of bobbin thread. I have taken it in to my dealer for...


The previous answer is incorrect. The bobbin should turn clockwise in the bobbin case, but then the thread doubles back through the bobbin case tension slot so the end of the thread would be pulling counter clockwise. Are you using genuine Bernina bobbins? Sometimes, generic bobbins do not work as well.

Are you applying a drop of oil to the shuttle/hook area every 8 hours of sewing time? Lack of oil makes my machine noisier. When I notice the sound has changed, I know it's time it needs some TLC.

If you are still having problems with the Bernina technician, try to find another dealer.

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.
