I have used my bernina serger 2000DCE for 20 yrs, but have bent needle bar and guess what.....that part is no longer available! boohoo. Any one have access to or knowledge of someone with parts available for the older bernina sergers. I would love to get it fixed, it is like a 3rd hand....

Ask a Juki dealer, they make a lot of the Bernina sergers.

One idea would be to prowl CraigsList and GoodWill Online for the same serger to use as an 'organ donor.'
GoodWill's site works a lot like eBay. I have bought a few things thru that GoodWill site and been very pleased with the transactions.

I am so sorry for your loss! I hope you find your needle bar. I have a Bernina 2500 DCET, I'm pretty sure they don't support that one either, so I am careful with it (that doesn't guarantee that something won't happen to it anyway).
Take some comfort in the fact that some of the newer ones are very nice. My main serger is an old 334 DS. I began to worry about it and to baby it. Then I decided to get a new serger to carry with me to classes or sewing groups. I looked at the Jukis, and was set to buy the one most like the Bernette 334 DS, when we got a trade in at work: A Bernina 1200. I got quite a nice deal on it and decided to take it home. I love it!
The moral here is that you might love a new or traded in machine as much as you loved your 2000.

I think anything you could do to it, strong enough to actually bend the needle bar (like dropping it, slamming something into it or I guess maybe even by the way and what you tried to though sew maybe, but I really can't imagine that happening at all as I think other things would "give " first) would have also messed up some other stuff too. If so, then just even only having a new or old unbent needle bar might not even be the answer to a problem like that at all. And maybe a waste of money and time. Just something to think about maybe.

How could you possibly bend up a needle bar without dropping the machine onto the ground or slamming something into the machine, (like a car maybe) that would not also affect a whole bunch of other things in it?

Sorry, I do not have parts but I have the same machine, Bernina 2000DCE, and am having trouble with the coverstitch. There is no service anymore in my area so I am trying to figure out what is wrong. Since you have been using yours so long, can you tell me if the needle heights are the same for the coverstitch? My left needle is higher than the right and I am wondering if that could be causing the looping on the bottom. I have tried adjusting tensions and it makes no difference.
