I wonder if alot of people on this board have had this problem with the "L" Board going bad on their 430 or 440? Mine was purchased in December 2006. It's a fairly expensive part. My Bernina was purchased used and has been fine until this ghastly problem! Just wondering....Can't wait until she is home again though! Pam in Chico

It doesn't seem to be machine specific Pam, those darn "L" boards just

seem to go out. I fervently hope there isn't an "L" board in my 830!

He is a great tech, too. At one time I did all the sewing (including working on sails for our boat). He now has my mom's 22 year old Pfaff which he modified to handle the heavy thread etc so I don't have to do that kind of work anymore. It has been handy for him to actually sew. I was making a silk chiffon bias skirt for our daughter and the rolled hem on the serger was pulling out. He suggested not using the knife and it worked really well. I have used that technique several times since.

I had the L board go on my 630 which was purchased November 2006. It does not seem to be an uncommon problem. I suppose with computerised machines it makes sense that the boards may give problems from time to time, just as mechanical faults occur on mechanical machines. It's a pain though!
