I turned off my machine to change the pressure foot on my Bernina Virtuosa 160. The pressure foot number does not change on the display. Is there something I need to do to change the number?

The machine Knows the foot number buy the small glass part of the foot just on the upper right side of the foot. Check to see if that is not damaged and clean. Also check the sensor on the machine just above the foot for not damage and clean. If that is good make sure your foot is paralel with the stitch plate. Do this buy putting a single hole foot on your machine and make sure the needle is right in the center. If this does not work you will need to take it in. May be a bad sensor or unpulged but that is rare.
Also not all bernina feed have this foot sensor, if this is the case it will not read it
hope this helps

Here is a link to a sewing machine part company where you can order the manual. It is $19, but I think well worth it if you have the machine. Good luck! That is a nice little machine. http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-manual-bernina-virtuosa-160.aspx

I have a Bernina Virtuosa 153 sewing machine that is skipping stitches while trying to shorten a pair of jeans. I changed the needle to a 100/16 and am using all purpose thread.


You may need to increase the foot pressure to cope with the heavy denim material. Look carefully at the material as the machine tries to stitch ... if the foot is not keeping the material firmly on the stitch plate, it might be riding up on the needle (denim tends to be rather 'grippy') which will prevent the thread loop being formed correctly below the stitch-plate and therefore not getting picked-up by the CB hook. Changing to a bigger diameter needle might actually make the situation worse in this case ... go back to an 80 and try again.

How is presser foot adjusted ?


If your stitches are tiny more than likely the feeddogs are not working correctly. More often than not its because the pivot points for the feeddog mechanism inside are gummed up,dirty and oily and they need to be cleaned. Your machine is in need of service. Does not really have anything to do with presser foot pressure especially if you have tried adjusting that to no availe.
It needs servicing.

I have a Bernina Virtuosa so not the same machine - but this may help. There is an icon on the front of the machine - it is a needlepoint pointing at a dot in an oval - there are arrow buttons on either side. These move the needle left or right of center and it shows on LED screen. I checked mine just now and if you turn machine off and on it resets to center automatically. Hope this helps - Happy Sewing!!

Bernina Buttonhole foot #3A


Hi, you must have an 1130S which means it could also be a circuitboard issue. If the LED/LCD light for the buttonholer does not flash you either need a new RET-Print (circuitboard) or a new buttonhole foot. Sorry to say that you DO more than likely need a new buttonhole foot according to my manual on this machine. No way to repair the foot that I know of.
You should bring the machine in and try it first.
Guess not all news is good news. Sorry.
