Sewing Machine Service Note

Do you have a Bernina 8 Series machine? We have a Bernina 8 Series Certified Technician on staff! Your machine will be in good hands.

Please call ahead to make an appointment when you plan to bring your Bernina in for service or repair.

When bringing your machine in for servicing, please bring only:

  • The machine
  • Power cord
  • Foot control
  • #3A or #3C buttonhole foot if available
  • Bobbin case
  • BSR (Bernina Stitch Regulator) if you have one
  • Embroidery module, hoops, embroidery foot, templates (if the module is to be serviced)
Our techs don't need any other accessories.

We often hear from customers that they don't have their machine serviced regularly because they don't use it very often and we totally understand the logic behind this notion. However, like any piece of machinery, lack of use can leave the oil and lubrication to thicken over time and when you use your machine again, it may not function as smoothly as expected. So, Bernina recommends a service at least every 12-18 months to keep your precious machine working at maximum efficiency.
