Question about Sewing Machines
Most often a seized wheel is because there is a lot of thread jammed at the needle. I suggest you first check the needle and the bobbin beneath the needle and remove all thread and lint build up. Hopefully this will get your machine sewing again. If not provide more details of your problem so I can help further.

Watts is Current ( listed in Amps and normally shown on a tag of some sort on your machine ) times Voltage ( 120Vac) so if you had
For example.. if it listed 10A as in 10 amps @ 120 V then you would have 10 x 120 or 1200 watts.. This should get you in the ballpark.. If you can provide the exact model number of your machine.. I couold get the specs on it and give you a better answer.. Hope that helps...

Please don't use WD40 on your sewing machine, WD40 is an alcohol based cleaner and will do the opposite of lubricate. Take your machine to a certified Bernina Repair shop, they will have a look at the timing and lubricate all of your gears. Lubricant will dry out over time, grease turns to putty and oils turn to varnish after several years of non-service. Lint is attracted to moisture, moisture being those key areas of any machine. Lint acts like an oil wick and will draw out your lubricant from key areas. It then begins to attract dust and other nasty things over the years to become grit. Your motor begins to burn out due to stress trying to move all of these clocked gears, cams and shafts. Take your machine in!
