Question about Bernina Virtuosa 160
Contact an authorized Bernina dealer/repair center. The service technician can often tell what board needs to be worked on, take it out and send to Bernina. I just had to have work done on my 1130 and that is what was done. If that does not work, look up the number and call Bernina USA directly so they can direct you. While it's true that some parts are no longer obtainable, the machine boards can be serviced by Bernina USA. It's worth fixing.

Sounds like maybe the contacts/carbon brushes may be worn. Recommend taking it to a Bernina dealer. Sometimes local fix-all sewing shops don't want to take the time to find replacement parts for Berninas. Frequently, parts can be found as long as you are persistent and find the right source.
Also, probably not likely, but have you cleaned and oiled your machine lately? Sometimes they get unhappy with lack of attention.
