Most likely they have seized due to lack of regular oiling. I have used the following method on several older seized Berninas with great success. Just be sure to NOT get any oil near the 930 basting stitch mechanism (about the middle of the needle bar) or it will most likely lock the machine.

This is a diagram for the Bernina 830 Record, but it will give you a good idea of what & where to look for oil ports.

My bernina 930 speed has basically came to zero. the wheel is turning but the needle is moving very slow and even stops moving even when the wheel is turning. what could be the problem?

Um, how long since the last clean and oil? Sounds like the machine has seized due to old dry oil preventing things from moving. Avoid using the machine until the problem is addressed or the motor may be damaged. (Do this and you will be surprised at how nicely your 930 will run!)

I have been away from sewing for a while but have recently begun again. I have a Bernina 1010. The fabric feeder has quit working. Any trouble shooting tips? I no longer have my manual.

Hm, I'm more familiar with the Berninas older than the 1010. The old mechanicals will seize if they haven't been regularly oiled. Could be the feed dogs on your machine have seized for the same reason.

I've resurrected several seized Berninas from a 930 on down to some 530s by opening the top, side, and bottom and applying a couple drops of oil where metal rubs on metal. After the 830 Record, Bernina stopped including any extensive oiling directions in the owner's manual, even though the 930 requires it frequently. (Some say Bernina really wanted the repeat maintenance business, but the 930 also presented some special issues with the basting stitch and the electronic board.) However, I am uncertain how much a user can oil a 1010 without causing damage. Most Bernina manuals provide information for oiling the race but don't go beyond that. Something that may be worth trying is directing hot air from a handheld hairdryer into the area that houses the feed dogs to see if that loosens anything.

Whatever you do, don't use WD-40, 3-in-1, cooking oil, or anything other than fresh good quality sewing machine oil.

You can find a manual for the 1011 here. It may be close enough to your model to be of some use:

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.

How to raise the feed dog to grab the fabric better

Most Berninas have adjustable presser foot pressure. The new machines are pretty obvious as Bernina has added dials that do that. The older machines, you have to look for a screw above the needle bar that will loosen or tighten the pressure. There is usually a long spring associated with it.

This is a picture of a 930 oiling diagram. But, if you look at the arrow second red arrow from the left (top picture), points to the adjustment screw on the 930. You might find something similar for your machine.

My Bernina 930 does not feed the fabric through the feed dogs. Hoe do I fix this?

Did you unknowingly drop the feed dogs, as for darning? It is the lowest knob on the right, the silver dial in the center raises and lowers the feed dogs.

Bernina 930 feed dogs won't come back up

Make sure you are oiling your machine every 8-10 hours of constant sewing or every six months if it's not in use. Use Bernina oil for CB hook and follow the instructions in your manual making sure you oil in the bobbin area.
