Free print manual


there are Bernina manuals as pdf's on their website, www.bernina.com, then go to Support, choose your manual in the drop down box and download it. There is not one there for the Activa 130 but the 135 is there and the 125, both will be very close to your mode.

I have a Bernina 125 Activa sewing machine but no maual. How do I thread this thing?


This is a nice machine - you can download a manual from the Bernina website, here is the link you need:
http://www.bernina.com.au/webautor-data/888/0305955004_0201_a125_EN.pdf

just give it time to build the page and download the pdf file.

Then you can save it to your PC and print it out if you have a printer. It is 52 pages so if you don't have a printer, you might need to save to CD and print at a copy centre. They could double side it and bind it for you too.

Threading up diagrams are in the manual.

Enjoy your Activa, it is a quality sewing machine.

How to oil? Where do you put oil?


The Activa range came with a lightweight plastic hook/shuttle that Bernina claims does not require oiling. Oiling/greasing of the main drive mechanism should only be done by a competent Bernina service engineer - it's not like the 'old' Berninas that had red paint spots next to all the oiling points ! I, however, always recommend that the hook/shuttle is removed every 3-5 bobbins-worth of thread and the hook race is thoroughly cleaned with a cotton-bud. Although Bernina says it doesn't need oil, I find that a small drop of oil on the hook race running surface is extremely beneficial to keeping the noise-level down and improving the consistency of the stitch formation.

Should the machine have some oil? Where? It is a Bernina Activa 130


The Activa range is fitted with a light-weight part-plastic hook/shuttle that Bernina claims does not require oiling. However, this does not mean it shouldn't be regularly cleaned and I'd recommend that it is also lightly oiled at the same time. Remove the bobbin case, press the metal lever to the top left of the bobbin door and the black plastic hook/shuttle retainer should pop open so that the hook/shuttle can be removed, or it will just drop out anyway. Use a cotton bud to firmly clean around the inside edge of the hook race (the round piece that the hook/shuttle sits in. Give the whole thing a good clean to make sure any surface grime/fluff is removed. Put a small drop of oil on the running surface of the hook race - the recessed groove around the inside edge, before replacing the hook/shuttle and holding in place by pressing the hook/shuttle retainer back until the securing lever clicks back into place. Rotate the handwheel once to distribute the oil and off you go. Dont overoil but do this regularly and your machine will run much quieter and produce a consistent stitch formation.

How do you oil a Bernina Activa 130? The manual doesn't say anything about it.


Remove needle, needleplate, presser foot and bobbin case. Now take a lint brush and clean under the feed dogs and hook area. take the bernina oiler(must be bernina oil only) now place a drop just below where the bobbin case clip on and one small drop under the feed dog area. replace items, sew out a test sample and away you go.

Bernina Activa 135 foot pedal problem


If you can get acess to or borrow another foot pedal to try I would do this first any of the Activa, Artista range fit to try. The fault may not be in the foot pedal but in the main CB of the machine. This can give a fualt of lights on but no motor drive. In this case the board would need replacing by a technician. Hope this may help.

Operating manual


I also have a Bernina Activa 125 w/o a manual. (is it contagious?)!
I figured it out by experimenting:
Use a #3 foot
Hit the "0" to make a buttonhole
On the LED you can see the left vertical blinking
Start stitching your first line, stop when you want
Now press the reverse pad
Start stitching
It will stitch in reverse w/ a straight stitch only
This provides you with a "guide line" next to your first one
When you stop at the end, push the reverse pad
Start stitching
It will make 2 small zig zags and then automatically make the end of the hole (wide)
Then it starts moving up your guide line in a mini zig zag
Stop at the end, then push the reverse pad, it will make the wide end of the hole.

Now a keyhole end ... haven't tried it yet, but I think this is the other one the Activa 125 makes
