The foot control you are talking about will activate the needle down function on your machine. You need to press down on your heel on the foot control. This was the precursor to the automatic needle up/down option that is found on newer sewing machines that will automatically stop with the needle in the down position.

I have a Bernina Patchwork 140. How do I change the needle to stop in the down position? The sewing manual is no help.


As far as I know, the Patchwork 140 doesn't have a needle stop up/down button. You'll need to use the hand wheel to bring the needle up or down, as needed. The Bernina machines that have a needle stop up/down button have this button below the LCD screen. (On those machines, it's usually the left-most button below the LCD.) I suspect the index giving a page number for the Needle Stop Up/Down button is a artifact of using the same index for multiple machines.

The manual for the Patchwork 140 is available at Manuals Lib here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1002243/Bernina-Activa-131.html . The Bernina 135 has the needle stop up/down button. See https://www.bernina.com/en-US/Support-US/Machines/BERNINA-activa/BERNINA-activa-135 . The manual for this model is https://www.bernina.com/getdoc/90f75840-2b12-4f46-88f2-76f09e35d8d4/030529-52-04_0303_a135-a145_EN .

I hope this helps.

What is presser foot 37 for


The Bernina foot 37 is called the 'Patchwork Foot'. It is very useful in piecing quilt tops as the foot features an accurate 1/4" and 1/8" on both sides of the needle. It also has a 1/4" guide in front and behind the needle to allow accurate 1/4" stops and starts from the end of the pieces being stitched together.
An excellent reference guide is available on line at: http://berninainstitches.com/pdfs/Bernina_Presser_Feet_Guide.pdf

How do you fix a sewing machine foot pedal for Bernina 930?


You could open it and tinker around, but since those are very expensive controls to repair once a customer has "tinkered" with them, I would suggest bringing it to a Bernina repair shop.

Bernina 1030 starts by itself and runs very slowly some time after parking the needle at the top


This is most likely a fault in the foot control. Normally supplied with this machine is a Type 10 and this can be fixed quite easily but probably not by the machine's owner unless you have some electrical and mechanical experience.

If you have knowledge of and access to a multimeter, you can test it. What working properly, you will find the following:
Pedal released: resistance is infinite (anything around 4k Ohms or less and the machine will run).
Heel pressed: resistance is about 10k Ohms.
Toe steadily pressed from nothing to all the way down: resistance is infinite then after a small depression, jumps to about 4k Ohms steadily decreasing to zero as the pedal reaches all the way down.

Your problem, being at the point where the pedal isn't pressed suggests that there's some contamination in the pedal. It's also possible that you have a type 365 pedal (as used on the 930) and this is more likely to give this kind of trouble due to the use of carbon brushes in this foot pedal.

What needle do i i need for a bernina patchwork 140 ?


The 130/705H needle system is standard across most domestic sewing machines so should be what your Bernina takes too.

On other Berninas you are able to take one stitch and end the stitch with the needle in the down position. I can't seem to find a lever, button or anything to allow me to do that on my Bernina Activa...


If you don't see a button that you can select for needle up / down, then you can't. Your foot control might might have a symbol at the lower side that shows and up / down arrow. If so you can tap the bottom edge of the foot control and the machine will half cycle, stopping with the needle in the down position.

I can''t remember the steps to make a button hole using my Bernina patchwork 140. I have the # 3 foot. What button do I push to turn the corner manually?


you can download a manual for the Activa 145 here, buttonholing steps would probably be very similar for your model
http://www.bernina.com.au/webautor-data/888/0305295204_0303_a135-a145_EN.pdf

It says you sew one bar, then press the reverse button and the automatic function then sews the bar tacs, other side, bar tack and finishes.
