Check the bobbin winding feature to see if it is disengaged.

If there is thread jammed in the bobbin area, the wheel will not move.

Turn off the machine and remove the needle and presser foot.

Remove the bobbin. Open the needle plate and remove the bobbin case and clean the area from lint and thread that may have accumulated there.

I have a bernina 730 and it does a fabulous straight stitch but it won't do zig zag or any ornamental stitches


Assuming this is the older mechanical Bernina 730 Record (not the new computerized model)...Sounds like your machine is seized due to dried oil.

Wheel on right side that controls the needle up and down is very tight...

Release stop motion knob won't move


What are you calling a stop motion knob? Are you trying to stop the needle from moving while winding a bobbin?

LED that illuminates the stitch selection bar quit working as did the up/down needle button.


Check your bobbin spindle. If engaged (pushed toward the right) LED will not light. When the clutch knob is pulled out, when you wind a bobbin, the up & down needle will not move. So you must push the clutch knob in again to let the up & down needle go up and down. The clutch knob on my machine is in the large hand wheel upper right side of my machine.

Where is the indicator to move from one pattern to another on the New Home mx 3123 ? The red light is on behind pattern 1.... How do you move it? Thanks!


it is the big knob on the right hand side below the bigger wheel that moves the needle bar up and down. You have to turn it clockwise to move the indicator to the right all the way to # 13 for straight stitch. It will make a loud click with every move. Make sure the needle is raised up because it jumps back and forth as you move the dial. When you make a buttonhole using pattern 1, when one finishes you turn the dial to #2 then back to #1 to reset the program. I have one right in front of me if you have more questions. This is an AWESOME machine and should never wear out :o)

Easy fix is take to local repair person, but barring that you will need to look to replace the little knob so that it tightens down and grabs the larger knob. Sometime you'll need to try to place it on the machine a few different ways till it works right.


The little knob is used to disenage the machine for winding a bobbin. Add little bit of machine oil to help keep it loose.

Needle wont go up or down


If the Handwheel (big knob) is moving but the needle is not moving, you need to engage the clutch ........depending on the model

- push handwheel in to engage, pull out to disengage
or
- if there is a smaller wheel inside the handwheel, tighten to engage, loosen to release.

BUT if all is jammed........

Check for threads that are jamming the motion of the hook around where the bobbin case is

If your bobbin goes in from the top, remove the needleplate and bobbincase remove thread jams by gently rocking handwheel back and forth until released.

Clean around the hook race with a rag moistened with methylated spirit, surgical spirit or similar, then reassemble.

If front loading, open the door for bobbin case area, release 2 retaining clips holding the collar on (take note of the position/orientation for when you re-assemble....even take a digi photo to refer to !?!).....
......then just do jam removal & clean out in much the same way as for the top loader.

In all cases, don't force too much or be too brutal, gentle and patient works best, try to judge where the jam is caught and work with it slowly......you may need to cut jammed threads, just ensure all are removed before you re-assemble.
