Hi everyone,

The serger 1110 is supposed to be the 1150 without the automatic threader. Does anyone in a non-220V country like US or Canada have a 1110? I'm wondering if it's 110V compatible.

There are models of the 1150 that are made to run in the USA. I

unfortunately do not have a lot of out of country experience, but I have

many friends that do. They seem to be able to find transformers etc. to run

their things.

Subject: AW: [430_440_630_640_730] 1150 serger in the US - what about 1110?



Hi Karen,

I have the 1150 MDA here in Germany and doubt that that it could be used in

countries with 110V since the type sign on the back clearly states 220 -

240V. Opposite to that I checked my Virtuosa and there the sign says 100 -

240 V, so that machine could work e.g. also in US, same as my Artista 180 or

B780. I know, my OLD 830 can.t work here in Germany, at that time the sewng

machines from Bernina also have been dedicated to the one or other system. I

run that machine with a Trafo without problems though.

So, if the 1100 serger.s sign carries the same sign on the back like I

described above that particular machine should not be run in US-net - I

suppose, that in US the machines have the other motor and are specified in

accordance on the type sign on the back of the machine.

So if you want to run a machine in a country with other voltage than the

machine is dedicated for you need a transformator.

Best Regards,

Barbara from Tornesch near Hamburg, Germany

Thanks Barbara and Karen,

The data is therefore still unclear for me. The 1150 is sold in both places, but the labels show only the local voltages. The 1110 is apparently the 1150 without the autothreader.

My friend and I will double-check with the dealer about the voltage, the dealer has ordered the 110V cable (as part of the foot pedal) but it hasn't arrived yet. I'm starting to suspect that Bernina is still verifying that it will work.

It won't work. You can't just change the cord to use an electric motor on a different voltage system. If the motor requires 220/240v and you want to use in North America, you will need a transformer to step up the voltage. You should be able to get one to adquately power a serger for about $30. To size it correctly, you need to pay attention to the wattage of the device too?

Where did you get the 1110? According to Bernina, it is manufactured for sale only in certain countries. Since almost everywhere but North America uses 220/240, that apparently means no availability in the US.

BTW, I own a TOL (at least for another minute or two) Bernina 1300 MTC (or

other letters J) It.s autothreader is really a tool for threading the

needle that can be bought separately for about $30. It is a nice tool, but

I want to put things in perspective. Once we remove that tool, the

threading of the 1300 and 700 are basically the same. I have seen the 1150

and it looks the same to me, but I never actually threaded it. NOW, I do

thing think the 1300 serges better than the 800 I previously owned. And

there are a number of important differences that make me glad I spent the

extra money. However, I don.t wasn.t you to think the auto threader is

anything like the Babylocks. .

Hi Karen,

This transformer should be adequate for your serger. It costs a bit more than some on Amazon but it has the necessary wattage for any sewing machine or serger.

This machine is for a friend, not for me. She's living in Germany for about 3 years, then will return to the US.

Because she was anxious about her other (11) machines, she chose to buy a 220V serger and a 220V sewing machine.

The Bernina 550 she bought was no issue, and at first the dealer presumed the serger would be the same.

That is clearly not the case, thanks to information from you, the dealer and several other places I checked. Neither the 1110 nor the 1150 are mains-compatible in both regions, so she would need not only a power cable(and for the 1110, integrated into the foot pedal), but also a motor.

So I informed her about the many choices, and we'll see what she decides. The dealer offered some of the options himself, like swapping the motor out just before she leaves Germany, but I think my friend is not so experienced with these matters and will likely prefer to buy a serger that is already good for both.

BTW, she already has a Babylock super-duper serger with the air (?) threading, just 110V.

Thanks again,

KarenO
