Bernina 1630 problem

I have a Bernina 1630 that worked fine until it started having problem that it did not want to sew in reverse. Today i tried it again and it only wants to sew in reverse. After playing around with settings i got it to sew forward but stitches are very tiny i can't adjust the size of the stitches.
thanks Judy

    I cannot find a way of reducing/ increasing the sizeof letters when sewing names

    I know there is an icon for a single repeat of letters or a design, I just can locate it.

Your feed dogs sound like they are getting stuck,chec whether they are on the down position,and also make sure that you have cleaned any lint that builds up in the bobbin area, if all fails it will have to go into the technician,

Machine start to jump around while sewing. Sometimes the needle jumps when sitting idle. What causes this to happen? I've replaced 2 boards since I've owned the 1630. I bought it new in 1997.

Take it in for service. Is it a Bernina 1630? Probably worth having a professional check it out and tell you what it would cost for repair.

Bernina 1630

I have a Bernina Virtuosa so not the same machine - but this may help. There is an icon on the front of the machine - it is a needlepoint pointing at a dot in an oval - there are arrow buttons on either side. These move the needle left or right of center and it shows on LED screen. I checked mine just now and if you turn machine off and on it resets to center automatically. Hope this helps - Happy Sewing!!
