Question about Bernina Virtuosa 160

1 Answer

The humming noise the Bernina 350 makes when first turned on, doesn't go away when the machine is not in use. Otherwise, it sews well, and doesn't have any other issue. Just that very loud annoying sound.....

    Thanks for the tip, Nathan. I panicked when my new 380 started buzzing as soon as I turned it on.

My Bernina 1300 MDC serger stopped sewing. The light comes on and the machine makes the start up noise but, when I press the foot pedal, nothing happens.The foot works with other machines.


check to see if any thread is jammed inside the right turning side wheel in the core area at times there can be thread that flies in there and may stop the main belt turning.

My bernina aurora 440 sewing machine is making a high pitch humming noise when I turn it on


These machines do make a noise during start-up, but if it stops after the sewing machine has gone through the set-up, it is probably okay. However, if the noise continues, it should probably be taken for a check-up. Even so, if you are worried, a check-up may still be helpful.

How do I keep the walking foot from unscrewing the needle holder on my bernina record 730


I don't know about bernina but I will take a shot at your problem. Make sure your needle is inserted in the needle arm with the flat part of the needle facing away from you. After it is for sure inserted in the crack in the arm tighten the needle down firmly. If the needle is backwards it will continue to come out. Your machine might sew but it will possibly make noise when the needle is in the down position. The problem isn't the walking foot.

I have a new Bernina 350 and the bobbin doesn't wind on evenly. If left to do it automatically it ends up wrapped around the bobbin spool. Is this normal?


the thread has to be pretty tight around the bobbin tension guide
but I would suggest if you can't get it to wind correctly to have it check to see if there is a problem with it

Bernina 1080 stitch length and needle jumping problem


you will most likely find that just adjusting the stitch length and width controls for a while will correct the problem (if the machine has been sitting idle for some time the stepper motor linkages seem to stiffen up a bit but i have good success with continual adjustment until they free-up.

also try switching machine off and on again to ensure it resets correctly.

the combination of both above fixes works 95% of the time - otherwise, as you mentioned circuit board and or stepper motor replacement may be necessary (however if both length and width are playing up it is unlikely to be an electrical fault).

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.
