The machine should have came with a light bulb tool, to help you get it out.
Very very hard to do that with out the tool.
You can get it at your local bernina dealer, or they should change it for free.
Does that machine have a power switch on the back top of the machine, there is a good chance that if it does it is bad. They go bad all the time. Some dont have the switch.

Light bulb 1008 bernina sewing machine


The bulb can be replaced. Your Bernina dealer will have what you need. The owner's manual should have instructions on how to replace it.

How do I change a light bulb in my Bernina 707?


I don't have a 707 but do have a 530-2 Record. Unfortunately, with some of these older machines, Bernina did not provide a very good method for accessing the light bulb. On later machines, the side cover would either be hinged or removable. If yours doesn't have this capability, the only way of changing the bulb is by reaching in with your fingertips, gripping, and turning the bulb to remove it and then installing the new bulb in the reverse manner (difficult for someone with big fingers). Sometimes it helps to use thin rubber gloves (like the surgical type), lightly moisten the finger tips to provide more "grip." There is also a sewing tool available that is somewhat like a pencil with a rubber suction at the end made specifically to help with replacing sewing machine bulbs. If you are creative, you may be able to fashion something similar.

Have you tried LED bulbs? I've installed them in all my Berninas. They provide a lot more light and do not get as hot as the regular bulbs--as well as, they supposedly last much longer! They seem expensive at the outset but if I never have to change a bulb again, so much the better!

In case you need it, here is the manual for your machine:

How do I change the light bulb on my Bernina 1530?


You might check out some of the older Bernina manuals to get an idea of how it may work in your machine. The 1260 is the closest manual available. Looks like your machine takes the same push-in bulb. So, you would push up on the bulb and twist. Then you would install the replacement the same way. Sometimes, using tight fitting medical gloves helps grip the bulb in order to twist.

BTW--I have older Berninas and upgraded their bulbs to LED.

How do I Replace light bulb in bernina 1010


Theres a gray flexible cap about 1.5" long and .75" in diameter that comes with the machine. It is used as a tool to screw and unscrew the bulb. Weirdly I have had my machine since I bought it new in about 1987 and have never replaced the bulb. And I do use it, at times heavily.
