This happened to me last year. When I took it in to be fixed, they told me it had to do with the long/basting stitch. They way it works it that the needle doesn't move for one stitch while the feed dogs move forward. They mentioned that I should use the long/basting stitch every so often so that it doesn't stick.

Now I'm having a problem with the bobbin thread not being pulled thru when stitching. I think something is out of alignment in the bobbin casing. Anyone have an idea how to fix it?

This sounds like you have the machine in bobbin winding mode, just refer to your manual to take it out of bobbin winding mode. I'm not familier with your exact model, but the is typically a lever, or button that is used to wind bobbins, so the needle doesn't keep sewing without the bobbin thread in place.

Please rate my solution thanks

What is smart pedal foot control for Bernina? I have a Patchwork Edition 140 and needle stop down should be controlled by pedal according to shop. I don't understand.


The foot control you are talking about will activate the needle down function on your machine. You need to press down on your heel on the foot control. This was the precursor to the automatic needle up/down option that is found on newer sewing machines that will automatically stop with the needle in the down position.

The handwheel will turn manually but it will not move using the foot pedal. The sound it makes when I press on the foot pedal *sounds* like I am filling the bobbin.

Bernina 1030 starts by itself and runs very slowly some time after parking the needle at the top


This is most likely a fault in the foot control. Normally supplied with this machine is a Type 10 and this can be fixed quite easily but probably not by the machine's owner unless you have some electrical and mechanical experience.

If you have knowledge of and access to a multimeter, you can test it. What working properly, you will find the following:
Pedal released: resistance is infinite (anything around 4k Ohms or less and the machine will run).
Heel pressed: resistance is about 10k Ohms.
Toe steadily pressed from nothing to all the way down: resistance is infinite then after a small depression, jumps to about 4k Ohms steadily decreasing to zero as the pedal reaches all the way down.

Your problem, being at the point where the pedal isn't pressed suggests that there's some contamination in the pedal. It's also possible that you have a type 365 pedal (as used on the 930) and this is more likely to give this kind of trouble due to the use of carbon brushes in this foot pedal.

Needle won't stay in left position when using zip foot - bernina 1530


Is it possible you're using a later foot with the sensor lenses on it ... your machine has the optical sensor for the automatic buttonhole foot and I'm wondering if you're getting it confused by using a foot that is not designed to go with that machine ?

Needle won't move on Bernina 930


If the machines motor is running but the needle isn't going up and down then the baste stitch finger is gummed up and needs to be serviced.  This is a simple fix and it happens all the time on those machines.  Take it to your local Bernina dealer for a standard service.  Also if you really need it in a pinch try pushing up on the needle bar that sometimes will fix the problem but it will still need serviced.
