    bernina artista 200 keeps locking up on me

    I was able to purchase this machine from a friend who bought it new. She only put 19 hours on this machine. I have had it for about a month. I have done a lot of sewing on it and just love it. I have not had any problems until now. I have to keep restarting it for it to work. It will stop sewing and the touch screen will stop working. I have checked to make sure it is plugged in all the way and the room is not too cold. What could be wrong with my machine????

    Hmmm. Sounds like a service is in order. I hope it's not too costly of a repair. I would guess it has something to do with the computer/mother board. Maybe a loose connection(hopefully!).

    I think it will have to go to the shop but don't panic yet. It might be something as simple as the foot pedal. My old Bernina had a ghost. I would take my foot off the pedal and it would keep on sewing. Scared the bejeesus out of me but I just needed a new foot pedal. You could have a short in the cord, switch or pedal. Definately get an estimate though before doing anything else.

    If computer related, it may be under warranty. I would certainly ask at time of repair.

    Have you tried another wall outlet? Or maybe a surge protector. It's important for the machine to get
    constant and even power.
    Lord, please keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth.

    Wow, I pray that I do not have to take this in for repair already. I just bought this secound hand from a lady that I know really well. She says that there were only 19 hours on this machine. It does not have a warranty since it is second hand. I will see if it continues. If it does I will take it in for check up.
