Question about Bernina Sewing Machines
Only sew for 20 min at a time... just kidding.
It could be a lot off stuff, could be a bit price to fix aswell.
The fisrt thing that comes to my mind is a bad S-print (mother board). This will need to be removed from the machine and mailed to bernina of america for repair. May be around $350 or so and about 3 weeks.
That is just a guess with the info you gave. It could also be a bound up slide block or bad stepmotors.
Most deffinitly will need to bring this to a bernina trained teck.
That is a great machine. If you like it then I say it is well worth the repair.
Hope this helps.

Agree with Nathan ... most certainly needs specialist attention. For what its worth, I've noticed that this range of machines suffers badly from dry joints on the main 'S'-print processor board .... I've had about half-a-dozen examples of the general range (with the slide-in processor/display board) that have either been stuck on straight stitch or kept reverting to straight stitch (because it's the switch-on default) that were easily got to work by separating the two boards and giving them the once-over with a soldering-iron on suspect joints and that have gone-on to have a long and useful productive life !!!
