Question about Bernina Sewing Machines

1 Answer

My Bernina 1230 (which I love very much) is sick. When I turn it on, it just flashes lights on and off till I turn it off. I think it might be dead. Linda

I would take it in for service at your Bernina retailer because there is a short somewhere in the electrical wiring. They may be able to test it at the dealer with another power cord and see if the problem is in that and then guide you as to the best course of action to take. I wouldn't let anyone work on it that wasn't connected with Bernina because of warranty issues.

What would cause my Bernina 1230 to only sew backwards?


Hmmm, not sure I can answer your problem. I have several Berninas (older than your 1230) but have not had this problem. Wondering if your machine needs oiling--like maybe the reverse mechanism is stuck. With mechanical machines, I've been able to loosen stuck parts using heat from a handheld hair dryer. Not sure that would work on your machine.

Bernina 1230 nothing happens when pedal is depressed.


Hmm, wonder if it could be a board or ????? You've already tested the foot control and it seems to be okay, so the problem would appear to be in the machine itself. Does the light work? That may be another clue.

May be time for a service call.

My Bernina 1230 has lost its electric connection. My mechanic says that I need a new power board for $270, $30 for shipping from Bernina, $100 for installation, and $70 for the initial service--a grand total of $470.

I bought a 1230 this summer and finally dropped it off for service with
a very reliable OSMG though not a Bernina tech.

He had the machine all tuned up and ready to go, decided to try it one more time, and the machine didn't move. Tried another foot control, and still nothing.

The theory is the internal circuit board is the problem.

I know that some of you have had local electronics guys fix the circuit board problem, instead of shipping it to Bernina headquarters."

How do I change the light bulb in my Bernina 1230 sewing machine? Is it made to be replaced only when serviced?


There is a small brown screwdriver/gadget that came in your accessory box included with the Bernina 1230. At one end, it is black plastic with a small point coming out of it. That end is used for tightening or loosening the screw that holds the needle in place. On the opposite end (brown on mine) it is hollow. This hollow end is pushed up and onto the lightbulb. (The bulb fits into the hollow.) Push up (firmly) and twist to the left to remove the light. To replace the bulb, insert the new one into the hollow spot on the holder and push it up and into the receptacle - twist to the right to lock it in place. There are actually two light bulbs, the one on the right is covered by a diffuser, but they both use the same procedure. It's easy to do and you are meant to be able to do it yourself. The pictures and instructions are on page 51 of the Bernina Guide. Hope this helps.
