I've just taken a chance and bought a Bernina 1031 from eBay, but now can't find a manual. I've checked the Bernina site where you can download out of print manual, online searches, etc. Everything says Bernina 1031DC, but my machine is not DC, not electronic. Can anyone tell me more about the 1031-I've read the very favorable reviews here before I bought it, but didn't realize i'd have trouble finding more info about the non-DC model. Thanks for any help!

The electronics are in the foot pedal.

My 1031 says on the front right side DC electronic. Do you have yours yet? I have a 1020 that doesn't say that. I do also have a manual and it says DC electronic on the front. Is your 1031 one that has the red and blue paint swipes on the front or the plain beige one?

I just checked on Ebay and I don't know if it's the machine you bought (sold on 3-13-13) but it does say DC Electronic on the front. It's just to the right of the stitch length lever.

I think all 1031s were the same.

Thanks, everyone! You have been very helpful. I do not have my machine yet but went to look at the listing again on eBay, and mine is the 1031DC, I just had to enlarge the photo and look around better. That means I can find a manual!
I'll likely be in touch soon with more questions once she arrives.

I bought a 1031 and was told the manual for the 1031 is the same as the 1030. I downloaded a free manual from Bernina for the 1030 and use it.

Congrats of your new 1031!

I just recently bought two 1030s (when it rains it pours!). Love them.
