I inherited my Grandmother's Bernina Record 530. I know nothing about sewing but I know this machine was used and loved for five or six decades. The foot pedal no longer works. does anyone know where I can turn to get a part this old? Are there universal pedals that would work with a machine this old? Any guidance would be very much appreciated.

Thank you so much!

Hi,I have an old Bernina 530 Record sewing machine.I didn't know it also came with a foot control.My Bernina 530 Record has a knee power control.So did the Bernina 530 Record I used to sew on in Switzerland a long time ago.

Here is a YouTube video,at the beginning you can see the knee power control. I'm sure a Bernina dealer knows which kind of foot control will fit on your sewing machine.

I would try to get it fixed first. This is the advantage of mechanical machines. The foot pedal on my Bernina 730 Record stopped working all of a sudden (while I was trying to sew a gift bag for a birthday party that evening) but my BF took it apart and reattached the loose wiring and it worked!

If you are not handy with electrical things (as I am not), I would definitely get someone knowledgeable to help.

There are many online resources (in addition to PR of course ) such as Yahoo groups to help you diagnose problems, get missing parts, and learn to repair the machine yourself if you feel so inclined.

I can't remember the exact names of the Yahoo groups, but there is one called something like "thirty something" (referring to the Bernina 530, 730, 830, 930, etc) and another called "Sewing Machine Repair"

Good luck and enjoy your machine. I love my 730!
