Question about Bernina Artista 180

I have a Bernina Aurora 430 (not on your list). For some reason, the feed dogs have dropped. The button that usually drops them isn't working.

If you remove the metal plate on the bottom of your machine, you can see the workings of the feed dog raise and lower button. With some luck it just might be a screw that came out or it might be a broken spring inside the sewing arm.
Without a service manual or a view of what it should look like inside when it is functioning correctly, at best you would just be guessing. It should be a simple 5 min fix but it is best to take it to a Bernina dealer for proper repair. Good luck, bushvideo

Feed dogs do not drop for darn Bernina 831


Old oil has dried and is causing parts to seize. Feed dogs are a frequent indicator of this condition. Stitch selectors also tend to be affected. Eventually, the needlebar will seize and the machine will totally stop.

Can't drop the feed dogs on my Bernina 1260


Could it be that the feed dog mechanism has not been oiled for a long time? I have a 930 and perform frequent all-over oiling including the feed dog mechanism (all-over refers to a couple drops of good quality sewing machine oil every place where metal rubs on metal). To get them working faster, try directing hot air from hairdryer into the internal mechanics to loosen things.

Location of control for feed dog Bernina Virtuosa 150


I assume you mean the feed dog drop button, which is a square button in the base of the machine at the right-hand (handwheel) end of the machine, about one-third of the way back. Press it once to drop the dogs, again, to allow them to come back up.

How do you oil a Bernina Activa 130? The manual doesn't say anything about it.


Remove needle, needleplate, presser foot and bobbin case. Now take a lint brush and clean under the feed dogs and hook area. take the bernina oiler(must be bernina oil only) now place a drop just below where the bobbin case clip on and one small drop under the feed dog area. replace items, sew out a test sample and away you go.

Bernina 240, won't complete the buttonhole


Double check the instructions and if there is still an issue, call the Bernina dealer and tell them what is wrong.

Ask if someone will be available to look at the machine when you come in .... you need one-on-one assistance.

Aurora 430 Bernina


Hi, possibly your feedogs are dropped and in the darning position and/or its thinking you want to embroider and there is NO hoop attached or entire embroidery unit plugged in. Check your feedog button below the handwheel on the bottom.
