Dont think it would be the motor the moter is on the right side below the handwheel, you can see the vent.
Could it just be the light bulb, they get very hot.
The motor on that machine is solid, never had a bad one.
When you say warm do you meen HOT, there is going to be heat generated from the motor, light and movent that goes on it there this is normal.

Is the Bernina 1230 a low shank or high shank machine?


BEWARE! Bernina machines take a special Bernina-only foot, and even the older Bernina mechanical feet will not fit the newer Berninas, and vice versa.

For the most part, your 1260 uses the old style presser foot--BUT be sure to check as there are some old style that will NOT work on your machine. (Be sure to CONFIRM whether it will work on your machine as I believe the 1260 has some specifics that will not take all old style.) Red marked presser feet are only new style (ie computerized machines). The difference is in how the presser foot is designed at the top where it attaches to the machine. Your Bernina dealer generally carries both the old and new style. BEFORE you buy, be sure to ask whether you are getting the right foot for the 1260!

Look at the top of these presser feet so you can recognize what you need. You are probably safe buying the presser feet that have the 2 pegs at the top (if it has solid peg across the top, it may not work):

You can use snap-on feet BUT you still need a Bernina Adapter in order to do so.

The presser foot doesn't sit all the way down in order to sew correctly. Can I adjust it myself? How?


Has that particular presser foot worked in the past? Do the other presser feet work?

If it hasn't been used before, check that it is the correct foot for the machine. Is it perhaps a darning foot or free motion foot? If so, those particular feet are made to Not rest on the feed dogs so that the fabric can be manually moved without the use of the feed dogs.

If none of the presser feet work with the machine, then the needlebar has probably shifted. It may be best to take it for service as it may require specific tools and gauges to adjust it properly.

Hi you should have a plastic piece in your tool kit that holds the second spool of thread. It clips on behind the existing thread stand

then thread as normal with one thread on each side of the top tensions now continue to thread down to the twin needle.
the resultant look will be two straight lines on top and a zig zag look on the bottom
hope that helps

Presser foot on bernina 180 won't go all the way down


Could be a number of things ... does the foot-lift lever go all the way down when you lower the foot and is it unusually 'floppy' when you lower it. There is a small spring inside that should keep tension on the lever and these can ping off if you inadvertently let the foot drop under its own pressure instead of letting it down slowly onto the fabric (they're a nightmare to put back, too !) ... if it has come off, it may be jammed in the foot lifter mechanism. It's also possible that the foot lifter has shifted on the foot bar, in which case it really needs to be looked-at by a qualified Bernina service agent. When raised, there should be a gap of 7.5mm between the bottom of the foot and the top of the stitch plate - if much more than this, it indicates that the adjuster has shifted and you'll need to get it looked-at professionally.

How to I determine the hours on my bernina 180 and on the embroidery module?


With the machine off, hold down the 'CLR' button and turn on the machine still holding down the button. On the lower right hand side of the screen that will appear is a clock symbol, next to it is the number of hours on the machine since the last service.

Bernina artista 180 keeps warning to check top thread and it is threaded right


Refer to your manual for maintenance and clean the machine as indicated. A sensor may be blocked by lint.

If this continues, the machine will need to be serviced by an authorized Bernina repair tech.

I thought this was free . . . didn't know I'd be asking to join. So, I called the shop where I purchased the machine. They were able to help me fix the problem.
