Question about Bernina Sewing Machines
Something happened when I did a reverse stitch - I don't know what I did, but now the only way to sew a straight line is to hold down the stitch regulator know while sewing. HELP.
Hm, am wondering if it is seizing. How long since it has had a thorough clean and oil? Seizing happens when the old oil dries and begins to stick the machine parts.
Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

SOURCE: How do I change the stiches?
You can do all of these stitches by using different combinations of your stitch selector, stitch width and stitch feed knobs, for instance, on the panel I can see on your machine:
Stitches 1, 2 & 3 are straight stitches, centered, left and right. Really basic stuff, not different stitches at all. 4,5,6,7 & 8 are zig-zag stitches of different widths. 9 is the widest zig-zag (no. 8) on a finer stitch length, etc...
I think you should try and get an instruction manual for your machine. After a lengthy search of my usual manual sources, I've determined that that this may not be so easy. I think you should contact White on their 800 number and let them try and help you... 1-800-331-3164.
If you found this helpful, please vote generously as I receive nothing other than acknowledgement for my time.

Be sure you are in the correct stitch pattern...if you are on a buttonhole stitch or a stretch stitch it normal for the machine to sew backwards. Be sure your length is to the right of 0 and not in a strtch stitch model or buttonhole mode.

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,

see your local dealer and tell them you have a bad power board. or l-print. this is a known issue and bernina is covering it under there 5 year warranty. the 5 volt output is faulty on some some models

I had a similar problem a couple of years ago. I finally figured out that I had the straight stitch needle plate (the one with the single hole), rather than the zig zag needle plate (the one with the curved hole). When I changed plates, it worked fine.
