In order to comply with the extended warranty you will need to maintain the machine and have it serviced within recommended periods. All Bernina sewing machines have electronic stitch counters*, which give and on screen message when it is necessary to have a service. However, even if a machine is only used occasionally and the stitch count for a service is not reached, it is still necessary to have the sewing machine serviced a minimum of every 3 years.

The extended warranty applies for normal domestic use only - not educational or commercial use - and to the first purchaser only.
