I can't tell you how frustrating this machine made me.

I have trouble with the bobbin locking up, then the thread needle comes up, when the needle is already threaded.

I would only recommend this machine for a person who likes to fiddle and has lots of time.

I should have known better. I had the 180E and it never worked right and it never accepted any other hoop except the largest. I felt that I got a lemon and it wouldn't happen again. I bought the 830 because of the large flatbed on it (but now other makes have it, as well). For the big $$$ I expected it to be my dream machine. Well, it's my nightmare machine. In a year it's had major surgery twice tying it up for weeks. The only reason it's only been in twice is because it's hardly portable and I can't afford to tie it up. I need it for work so I put up with it but it takes 4x as long to get anything done with the constant threading problems. It DOES NOT thread itself, it doesn't stay threaded, breaks needles all the time coming down on it's own foot. Thread jams, top & bottom, constant error messages, and sometimes it forgets where the design is supposed to be in the hoop after you have several of the colors down. It's cost me a fortune in ruined projects, time & asperin.

But seriously, why should I have expected more from a company that named it "830" after another 20 year old model? So that anytime you look for parts or need service or accessories you have to make sure you're both talking about the new 830 not the old 830. These machines couldn't be more different. Did the universe run out of numbers or is it that no one at Bernina can count any higher?

I belong to a couple of chat groups for people who machine embroider & sew. Very often someone will write in to ask for a machine recommendation. Never once have I heard a Bernina owner recommend a Bernina machine. While the Janome, BabyLock, Viking & Brother owners can't say enough great things about their machines. I going to have to trade this in for another make. This machine was not ready for market.

I was new to the Bernina Sewing Machines, I paid top dollar for this Machine, as soon as I bought it home I started having problems with the Bobbin door not responding correctly, I must have had this machine in repair over 15 times in the 2 1/2 yrs that I owned it. I can't tell you how frustrating this machine made me. The Sensor on the bobbin door never worked right from the beginning, then I was told to use only special tread, which I didn't want to because I do thread painting, I purchased this machine in another state so every time I had to drive over 3 hours to bring it in, drop it off and then pick it up. The tolls and gas and my time became so expensive I could have purchased yet another machine. I knew this machine was a lemon but the dealer and Bernina would not admit it. Then my dealer told me that if I called them and complained about the dealer they would pull their license from the dealer, "Bernina who the HELL do you people think you are?

I tried calling Bernina in Chicago no satisfaction, you can't get anyone on the phone to call you back. Pluse they don't have customer service. Their customer service STINKS!!! I was told from my dealer that the tread is too far away from the needle and when it travels such a long distance it creates problems. I have no desire EVER to PURCHASE A BERNINA ANYTHING EVER AGAIN...THIS MACHINE STINKS & IS OVER HYPED ADVERTISING FOR A
LEMON IT JUST NOT WORTH YOUR TIME. IT IS NOT A USER FRIENDLY MACHINE, AND AS FAR AS THE "SWISS" GOES, THESE PEOPLE ARE STUCK UP-SNOB'S AND WILL NEVER GET MY BUSINESS AGAIN. THIS MACHINE WAS MARKETED TOO SOON, AND HAD TOO MANY PROBLEMS BEFORE PUTTING IT ON THE MARKET. I NOW OWN TWO BROTHER MACHINES, NOT ONE PROBLEM. ONE IS THE Innovis 2800D, and the new one is the Innovis 6700D Quattro.

I have this machine and love the quilt in the hoop feature, well made hoops and feet --- but there my like for it ends. It is one picky piece of machinery. I am a computer savy person but this machine is picky to beat the band. Yes, I have figured out how to go around many of its "quirks" but I don't like the fact that I have to use so many work arounds and the machine is not intuitive at all. The bobbins are painted with silver paint and if the paint wears off the bobbin must be replaced.

I would only recommend this machine for a person who likes to fiddle and has lots of time. I do not have the time or the inclination. I am keeping it because of the quilt in the hoop and other things and because I can't sell it for enough money to justify giving up some of the quilting features. I have seen people do beautiful quilt in the hoop that rivals the best long arm but that is because it is NOT threaded for embroidery in the bobbin area. The embroidery is in my opinion lacking and the bobbin system that requires a dental mirror to learn to thread it SUCKS. However I have bought an Ellisimo Gold to do most of my sewing.

This machine can't read Anita Goodesign patterns easily due to its operating system. Best I have heard is copy in DST and do without the proper color charts. If you copy into exp it hops and does running stitches between colors. No way will I tolerate that. I haven't had the problems many have because I have a great dealer and got the LE, but I really don't like this machine for being picky and not user friendly. I would not recommend it for that reason.

I will personally never buy another Bernina machine again. Priced higher than most with less features on the lower end and on top end buggy updates, poor design that requires many work arounds.
