Can you move the heedle up and down by hand and is the motor running? If yes, is the clutch for the bobbin winder not disengaged?

Stitch selector knob on bernina 600, not Deco, is stuck and cannot select needle position, However the width of stitch part of the knob is working.This knob has 2 parts, needle position and width control


Your machine (Bernina 600 Record) has most likely frozen (seized) due to lack of regular maintenance. Don't panic. It can be fixed with a lot of elbow grease, good quality oil and a hairdryer. The following method has resurrected several Berninas I've picked up as "nonworking."

Pfaff 1222 E Makes a whirring noise, wheel won't turn


How long has it been since it's had a thorough cleaning & oiling (including the internal moving parts)? Resist trying to run the machine if the only thing running is the motor. You could burn up the motor or possibly break a gear.

The following method has helped me rescue some frozen older Berninas (which your model seems to resemble). This method worked on all of them except one that also needed a cracked gear replaced.

I have an Elna SU. I cannot get my cam stitches to work....what could I be doing wrong? I have followed the manual.


If your machine is mechanical, not computerized, it probably needs a thorough oiling with fresh good quality sewing machine oil. The old oil has solidified over time and locked the moving parts in place.

5417 Mechanical Sewing Machine: ok when my needle goes down it seems to hit someth...


If the needle is not in all the way it will bottom out in the shuttle, or if you bought new needles and accedently got the wrong ones. If the needle does not enter the needle plate far enough to be bottoming out then the machine is out of time. You know i was about to hit post it and I realized I didn't think about, if the needle is bent it will hit the hook. so check those things hope it works out.
