Goes in reverse at odd times?

Hey guys -

I saw a cheap 1130 for sale but the seller said it sometimes goes into reverse without reason. She said she has not used it much in the past years because she had some kids and got too busy to sew.

The machine comes with lots of goodies - and I would love to have a more portable zz machine - as well as a quiet machine to play with when I cant rev up the big industrial.

Have you Bernina pros heard of this before - or think you would even touch a machine with a issue like this?

What do you think. It is very inexpensive.

Do you think it really goes into reverse at odd times, or is she accidentally hitting the reverse button? If it does reverse all on it's own it could be one of the boards. That might be expensive to fix and who knows if the boards are even still available. You might want to call a Bernina dealer and ask if they can still get boards for the 1130.

In between - I heard from the School there is a bill I have to pay off with them before I can start Grand School - so I have to put any extra toward the School stuff instead of machines.

HATE that when you have to use money for something other than machines or thread but you made the right decision.How portable will a Bernina 1130 be anyway - thing probably weighs a ton. If you see another machine you think you'd like - go try it out...:) Do you still have your Janome straight stitch? ;)

I do not have the janome anymore - I have an industrial SS.

I have a cool old kenmore for a zz -- but it is very heavy.

The School has a fancy Topaz that I will be able to play with and try out embroidery! Im excited about that!

I think the quietest machine I've ever sewn on was an Elna Carina. I don't know if the fact that it was owned by the old sewing machine repair guy's wife, had anything to do with it. It had zigzag and some fancy stitches, it was compact and well engineered. The other very portable machine I'd highly recommend is a Pfaff 1171. The 1171 has dual feed, needle up down, low bobbin light, 1/2 speed, built in needle threader, can you tell I love my old Pfaff It wasn't nearly as quiet as the Elna, but the low bobbin light and dual feed make up for that.
