    Bernina 730 Record Service Manual?

    Hi there,
    Has anyone found a downloadable service manual for the 730 Record?

    I have a problem with the stitch width selector, and will need to change out the cam stack gear if I can get this motor running.

    I could probably futz with the stitch width til I get it, and the cam stack gear doesn't look like rocket science, but reference is nice, and if it's like the Singer 401, etc, I wonder if the cam stack needs to be "zeroed out" after the gear is replaced.

    I tried both of the yahoo groups: wefixit, and Vintage Sewing machine Repair already, no luck.

    Tammi,

    I got the owners manual for our 930 Record from the Bernina site.

    Here is the page with the out of print and 730 manuals:
    { http://www.bernina.com/en-US/Support...ing-Systems-us }
    I didn't see any service manuals, but perhaps a phone call to their office might direct you to one.

    Here is their home page:
    { http://www.bernina.com/en-US }
    well, at the the U.S.A. home page.

    Hope this helps.

    Joe

    Tammi,

    I found one. It don't help much cos it ain't free, but it's a 730 Record service manual.

    { http://pages.sewing-machine-manuals....1797253/2.html }

    It's the bottom one on that page.

    Oh my, Joe, I'm sorry, I should have mentioned the free word. Yes, I've seen tons of the for sale ones, most of then for less than the $15 they want on that site.

    This machine actually came with 2 owner's manuals, identical from what I can tell. I'll need that to figure out how a couple of the features work once the machine is up and running.

    The service manual is mostly just to make me more comfortable with the work, so I'd rather not put still more money into the machine until I know if I can get it running (still have the motor to work on, life keeps getting in the way)

    Thanks for looking!

    Hi Tammi! Did you find a source for the service manual for less than $15?

    Hi Jannilee, I didn't end up finding one, no. I ended up selling the machine for parts when I couldn't get the motor running right. I think I mentioned that there were other sites who had it less than $15, but I can't recall who they were. Google should help here though.

    Christy, PM me with an email address. I can help you offline probably. I think I have the Service manual, such that it is, here somewhere too now.
