Question about Bernina Virtuosa 150
If you can not turn the handwheel at all there is a bind in the machine somewere. The most comon place that this will happen is in the hook/bobbin/race area. Follow these steps and it may fix your problem.
Remove needle and bobbin case.
We need to open the race and remove the hook. (The race is the black round part that the bobbin goes inside.)
On the left part of the race there is a small steel clip that you push to the left and it should fall open.
Then remove the hook, it may have fallen out alreay. (It is just right behind the race.)
Clean out that area and make sure there is no broken needle/lint/ ect.
Test to see if handwheel is moving freely with the parts out.
If so lubricate the hook and put it all back together. Should be ready to sew.
Hook needs to be lubricated every 2-3 bobbins
If this does not fix it probably will need to take it in for repair.
Also check to make sure your bobbin winder is not on (I dont think that is it but ill mention it).
Hope this helps
