Unfortunately the machine is going to be around twenty years old now so spare pcb's are extremely hard to find. Many of the key electronic components on the board are also long discontinued, but if it's something simple like a failed relay then any electronic repair specialist will be able to fix it. Bear in mind that a sewing machine repair technician is rarely going to be an electronics whizz, so what he/she may find to be impossible to repair may be a piece of cake to a specialist if the damage is obvious or if you're able to give them details of which component has failed. If one of the programming chips has failed then the board is unfixable.

If the board is definitely unfixable, then all you can realistically do is to consider contacting every Bernina stockist and any shop which sells used machines to see if they have a spare board. If not, then sell yours as a spare parts donor and use the proceeds towards buying another machine.

That's an older machine, may not be worth such a high dollar repair.
Consider a new machine.

Bernina Aurora 430 sewing machine that the sewing light and the display went out on at the same time. I assume the problems are related but not sure. Was told that the main circuit board was the problem...

That's probably true if there's not a fuse or circuit breaker on the machine. Alas, if anyone but a repair shop opens the case, you've voided the warranty, so I'd look hard for a circuit breaker on the machine and then if that's unsuccessful, drag it in for repair. With luck, it's a loose board.

I have a bernina 1015 that burned out the circuit board. I replaced it with a new one and now the light dims and goes out when sewing.

Your post says 1015...Did you mean 1008, 1001, 1011? If so the PCB will be a type 290. After market foot controls are not recommended for this machine. You original PCB can be repaired... "> SewTechnical Home
