SOURCE: Bernina 910 sewing machine extension table

Hi Phoebe,

What you have is the extension table for the 830 and the 830E Bernina models. What you need is part number 301 276 100. This table looks a little different as it has a small see-through window in the bobbin area and also, it has no clamp (it has push-in pins). Ebay or a site like SewItsForSale is your best bet. I doubt the dealer could get one but if they could, it'd be likely around $100.

You can oil any two metal parts that move togeather or through each other. Do not oil bearings and do not oil gears. Do not use 3 in 1 oil or WD-40. Use regular sewing machine oil.
801's were made from 1979 - 1982. The way Bernina dated these on the machine is by the serial number. Your number would probably start with a 0 or a 1. 1970 is a 0, 1971 is 01, 1980 is 1, 1981 is 11, 1990 is 2, 1991 is 21 etc. etc.

SOURCE: Bernina Bernette 65 sewing machine

I had the same problem. I'm a novice sewer. I just bought my machine. It did the samething, tension didn't work, the thread kept knotting up underneath, and the fabric kept curling up in the back.

I adjusted the tension knobs to no avail. Then it kept bothering me that it was curling up. I then decided to set the dials back to where the factory had them and adjusted the presser foot just a hair counterclockwise and I haven't had anymore problems.

The other day the needle almost broke because the tension was tight on the thread. You have to make sure that the needle is at it's highest point to get it to release the fabric so you have a thread tail.

This is my first purchased machine. I had a New Home years ago that was given to me, however it blew away in the tornado of 1991 in Kansas and I never replaced it. I really do love this machine. I don't believe I will ever want another.

I purchased a serial port that is not compatable with my sewing machine, I also purchased an updated software with Bernina to make my embroidery machine user friendly. however,I am unable to connect


Problem is that the Bernina software you are using expects to talk to a 'COM port and the PC's USB serial interface doesn't automatically default to a COM port. Make sure you have installed the software that was delivered with your USB-to-Serial adapter and look on your PC's 'Device Manager' under 'Ports' - you should see the USB adapter listed and it should be assigned to a COM Port number. You need to check what COM port numbers are accepted by the Bernina embroidery software (sorry, I cant remember and haven't got one here presently) - it should be in the Options menu. You have to ensure that the USB 'virtual COM port' is the same as that which is set in the Bernina software. If the Bernina software doesn't support the COM port allocated to the USB interface, go to 'Properties, Port settings, Advanced, COM port number and set this to the same as the COM port number in the Bernina software - hopefully this should set up the link OK, provided you haven't got a COM port clash - to avoid this, it's usually best to choose a COM port number of 2 or above.

What year was Bernina 1008 in production?


The pdf brochure on their website http://www.bernina.com.au/product_detail-n2-i18-sEN.html
says this is the last mechanical machine in their range and has been offered for decades.

So you might need to do some detective work with the serial number on the machine plate, sometimes you can deduce the year of manufacture from the serial no as they'll incorporate the manufacture year into the number.

Serial number 008 401 8311 WHAT YEAR?


do you know what model it is?
I think that is not the serial number, I think all bernina machine serial numbers do not start with a 0.

Serial number


No question, but the 'serial number' of the machine is actually the 'chassis number' on Berninas and is the 8-digit number following 'ChNo' on the specification plate on the rear of the machine. The number following 'SeNo.' is actually the type number and will be the same for all machines of the same model.

My Bernina Artista 180E no longer works with updated Windows. Is it possible to upgrade so that I can still use my 180E and not have to buy another machine?


Just use the free download software from Bernina called Artlink. I used it along with a USB to Serial converter cable to connect to the machine. Works wonderfully. Allows me to still use my old Artista designer software if I want to on an older machine and then when I want to actually transfer the designs I use the laptop with the USB cable.

Trying to connect a USB to the serial port of a Bernina Sewing Machine (Bernina 170). Has been working for a couple of years and has stopped all of a sudden. Does not work on and XP PC, Vista or win 7....


The Dynex adapter does not have any numbers on it. It was the one that is only about a foot in length and has a square center piece that houses the conversion electronics. Standard 9 pin RS-232 male plug on one end and the standard USB plug on the other end. I purchased it within the last month at BestBuy here in Austin TX.

How to identify a bernina sewing machine


Older machines, the model number is found on the throat of the machine and sometimes stamped on the cover over the motor. You can also give me the serial number stamped on the machine and I can look it up for you. I am a certified Bernina/Brother dealer and technician.
Perhaps look at Ebay, you may get lucky before your eyes become crossed looking at the many many Bernina models out there.
