Here is a tip from expert Hans Herzog， innovation and technical education manager at BERNINA of America：
When using compressed air or canned air to clean your sewing machinepersonalized gifts for her， where does all the lint go？ The hook area might be free of lint， but most lint ends up in areas where usually no lint ever accumulates， deep inside the machine. That lint accumulation over time could become an issue and negatively affects the performance of your machine. As you can see in the picture， the hook area is perfectly clean and on the right hand side with the covers removed the lint is packed in.
We recommend not using compressed air for cleaning for obvious reasons. Using the cleaning brush provided by the manufacturer or using a larger soft brush is effective as anything else. In general we recommend to have the machine serviced once a year by an authorized store.
