Broken Bernina 708 started smoking? Any idea what is wrong with it?

Firstly, It's great that your using a surge plug. If it was smoking with the power On DO NOT USE IT! Smoke is one step short of actual fire! Was it giving off a 'funny' smell as it smoked. Smoke usually means the electrics and/or the motor are starting to 'Burn Out'. This is possibly a serious issue. You will need to take it to a specialist repairer as they'll need to open the sewing machine up to find out why the electrics are heating up to a dangerous level.

My 830 Bernina won't stop if it's plugged in?

First, Don't run the machine until you get it repaired. Running it could burn out the actual sewing machine costing you a lot more money in repairs. This problem could be that the mechanism inside the pedal is stuck in the down position. Most sewing machine pedals can be removed. Sit with the back of sewing machine nearest to you, as if your using it from the wrong side. The block connector for the pedal should be next to your left hand. Pull the connector block towards you. It might be tight so may need a reasonable amount of force to get it out. If you take it to a sewing machine specialist they may be able to service or repair it.

Find a gear part to repair my Bernett 334d

Has the horizontal shaft gear (white nylon gear) inside your overlocker failed? Does it look like this?
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/horizontal-shaft-gear-bernina-bernette-50141103.aspx

My repair man obtained this part from Bernina and was able to repair this although it is a labour intensive repair requiring pulling down the whole machine to do. But the part itself was only $US38.

You can buy from sewingpartsonline as per link above.

Or you could ring Bernina head office in your country and talk to someone about it as I was initially told my machine was unrepairable as this part was not available by a local store who wanted to sell me a new one. I guess in light of the 4-5 hour repair time, this is probably a valid call if you buy a new plastic serger but I love my Bernette and felt it was worth repairing, not junking it. It is now 5 years later and still going strong since that repair. My OSMG (old sewing machine guy) Ken told me that the nylon gears sometimes will just crack, even if the machine hasn't had lots of work, just plastic ageing.

Hope this helps you - please rate me 4 thumbs up if so. Cheers

I have been told that the circuit board for my Bernina 640 embroidery machine is defective. Is that located within the embroidery module or the sewing machine?

The only way the cable could get damaged is by taking the housing off incorrectly.

My Bernina 932 presser foot won't lower. Can I fix it?

Unlikely, but you can try if you don't mind trying to get in behind it and see what is binding. When was the last time it was serviced? They should be cleaned, serviced and timed every 2 years even with minimal use. If it is a sideline business, every year.

Are parts still available for the Bernina 1630?

Some parts are available for the Bernina 1630, https://www.sewingpartsonline.com/bernina-1630-sewing-machine-parts.aspx?index=44 . Compatible presser feet and bobbins are probably available at most vendors. Other parts may be harder to find. I hope this helps. Cindy Wells

I have a 35 year old Bernina Sport...... The disengagement wheel won't re-engage after winding a bobbin. Is this that can be fixed easily. The machine has been in storage for sometime.

Since it has been in storage for a period of time with no regular care, I'm guessing it has seized. Recommend taking it for a thorough checkup.
