My Bernini Sport sewing machine has given wonderful service

Customer Question

My Bernini 'Sport' sewing machine has given wonderful service for 20 odd years without problem. I sewed a straight seam as usual then changed the needle position to sew in a zip-the machine wouldn't move forwards or backwards. I have done all the usual checks but to no avail ( I still have the users book.) I'm looking for a Bernini technician. Thank you.

How old is your sewing machine?
Also may I have the FULL model #?

Thats great as I said, you don't need to reply to this message, and I am only a technician and don't get paid unless you rate in a positive fashion. Just please don't rate negatively as it will hurt my good standing as a tech here for 7 years ;-)
Thank you
You would need to talk with customer service about that.
