MY Bernina 707 minimatic. It just gets stuck sometimes when I am stitching.

Be sure that your machine is well lubricated. Most older machines suffer from lack of regular maintenance-- old oil turns to glue over time and sticks things together. Use only good quality sewing machine oil, ie Bernina oil for older machines or Tri-Flow Synthetic Oil. Apply a couple drops each place where metal rubs on metal (that includes inside the upper machine, around the needle bar on the left, and in the base area, especially bobbin hook, feed dogs, etc.) Do NOT oil cams, nylon/plastic, or belts. To speed things up, you can direct hot air from a hairdryer into the internal mechanics of the machine.

If cleaning and oiling does not resolve the issue, you should probably take it for service because it could require replacement parts or technical adjustment.

FWIW, your machine is a great machine, so spending some time/dollars on it reward big dividends.

Bernina 830, How do I raise the feed dog?

Feed dog selectors on older mechanical machines often become stuck with age, lack of use, and lack of oil. Do a thorough clean and oil of your machine (see your manual for where to oil) using a good quality sewing machine oil (not 3-in-1, WD-40, or cooking oil). If it hasn't been oiled in quite some time, a good penetrating oil such as liquid Tri-Flow Synthentic Oil from your hardware store can be used. Do not use more than one or two drops at a time and do not oil the metal cams or the two white plastic gears. To further loosen things up, direct a hand-held hair dryer on a hot setting into the internal mechanism of the machine. You may need to repeat several times and let it set overnight, but if it is old oil that has gummed things up, it will usually loosen up with oil and heat.

Recommendation is to oil every time a bobbin thread is changed, every 8 hours of constant sewing use, or every six months if not in use.

Also note, sometimes the feed dogs do not raise until you begin to sew even though the selector has been changed.

My clippers are pulling the dog hair instead of cutting, why?

Most common cause will be the blades have gone dull and should be sharpened or replaced. Check that the 2 screws on the blade latch assy are tight where it screws onto the front housing, blade off to check them. 3rd thing to check is for excessive wear in the lever that drives the blades, if it is worn replace it.

1995 honda shadow ace, overall runs great, but at certain times while under heavy load, like riding into the wind at highway speeds it will heat up and temp light comes on. if i pull to shoulder and reduce...

could be several things
1-- coolant radiator is partially blocked or the thermostat is not fully opening reducing the flow of coolant through the radiator
2--- tuning is too lean at full load which causes overheat conditions for the engine
3--- timing a bit retarded for the rpms
i t is all connected to the extra load from the head winds requiring extra throttle that you would not normally use in normal conditions
another place to check is the fairing in use as the extra wind speed from the bike and the head wind may be causing a turbulence around the radiator and so preventing full air flow to the radiator

The turntable won't turn off.

The ole' wife hit the turntable with a tennis ball while playing with the dog accident. Very familiar with it. You can try a couple of different things...

1) Go inside the turntable, and see if you can fix it. Often times, there is a spring or bearing underneath the button, which has come dislodge. Just a matter of getting in there and putting it back.

2) See if some electrical contact spray does the trick. This stuff works great. and it's also available at most Radio Shack's now.

3) Just unplug it when u want to turn it off. Although, this is not really recommended, as your unit will be prone to slight surges and sparks - unless you just connect it to a power surge protector with a switch on it.

If all else fails, bring it to a service location for assistance. Shouldn't cost too much to fix, unless... the switches underneath the buttons are broken and need to be replaced. The switches are inexpensive ($5-10 part), but they'll get you on labor.
