I need the foot control,not the cover, for my 730 record. Several years ago, the control died; my dealer replaced it with a generic control, using Velcro to attach it to the cover. Cut off the plug and hardwired the cord to the control. I wasn't sewing much then, so limped along with it, although it never did work right. Now I am sewing more ,and want my pedal corrected. Anyone know where I can find a used control to fit my pedal cover???? I have found a few new control/cover units, but all I really need is the control to fit in my pedal cover. Help!!

I don't know if the 730 Record and 830 record use the same foot control. I do remember reading somewhere that some of the earlier 830's had problems with the control shorting out after being used for a long time. Bernina wasn't making them anymore, so they became scarce.

Yahoo! has a group called Bernina Thirty Somethings for owners of the older 30 series machines. You could try joining and asking if someone has one to sell. It might take a few days for a response, though.

Hi

I looked at a Swiss web site (220 volts foot controls) and it seems like there is a difference between Bernina Record 730 and 800 record machines and you should be aware of there exists several types of foot controls for 800 record series and they are not interchange able.

The Swiss web site is Info about vintage Bernina sewing machines in German
