Question about Bernina 1008

2 Answers

I'd like to purchase another Bernina Sewing machine; I'm on a limited budget. A Bernina 1130 is listed on ebay for sale as parts. It's missing an "L print (backboard)" What should I offer for this machine and should I expect to pay to get it working (ballpark figure)? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380271771471&fromMakeTrack=true&ssPageName=VIP:watchlink:top:en

    Is there someone in your area that you plan to have fix it, or were you going to go through Bernina directly?



    I'd have someone try to fix it. There is only one dealer near me that I'd trust. I know the L print isn't the computer, but I was wonder what to expect to pay for the L print to work. Any ideas on the time and $?

    Yes, the solution was helpful. I'm still a little confused on the total $250 + $150 for the machine?

I would advice that you offer $150 for the machine and a maximum of $200. Getting the machine to work should not cost you more that $250 on the total. As regards paying to get it working that should include the $250 as shipping is also part of the total fugure given.
Hope this falls within your range?

Wow believe it or not that is the exact sewing machine I have and use (and yes I am a guy lol, but still sew). They are the best machines! As I'm sure you already know :) If it were me personally I'd offer $130, you can always submit another higher offer, and $130 for a "broken" sewing machine is pretty fair from my standpoint. Getting it repaired is very difficult to say. Is there someone in your area that you plan to have fix it, or were you going to go through Bernina directly? I would contact Bernina if it were me and see what they would estimate, I would email the description from that auction to them directly and see what they say... Email them :

"I have a Bernina 1130 Sewing Machine that I want to get repaired. It still has the S print which has been tested and is good--still has the bobbin case and hook assembly, power supply, front board. The L print (backboard) is missing. All motors still present. R print and take-up assembly present, all mechanical parts are present."

You can email them from their web-form, looks like the best way, and they will definitely get back to you. Here is where you need to go to contact them:

Is bernina 930 a low shank or high shank machine

Looking for secondhand bernina machine cape town to buy


You may check out local sewing machine shops or even a Bernina dealer (if there is one). There are many Berninas on eBay but verify that the machine has been serviced by a Bernina technician and is guaranteed to be in operating order. Also, shipping could be quite expensive, especially if you include insurance against shipping damage. Check if there are any for-sale-by-owner facilities near you, ie Craigslist in US. Also, are there any Bernina sewing groups in your area? That may be a good place to ask if someone has a machine for sale.

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.
