It is difficult to find service manuals because they were reserved for service/repair personnel. Finding them for older machines is even more difficult. You may find one on the secondary market, ie eBay, Etsy, etc. However, you may have some luck by joining the BerninaThirtySomethings group on Yahoo. The members on that group are very helpful.

3) Cycle through and test some of the stitches and be sure that it's not a computer issue
4) What are fabric are you sewing on?
4) Do you have the correct needle for the fabric you're sewing? Or substrate if you're doing embroidery?

Traditionally, an electric sewing machine is driven by a brush-type AC motor via a foot-operated rheostat.

When the rheostat is disconnected the circuit to the motor is broken and no current should be reaching the motor. Obviously your motor is receiving current and this can only be caused by a wiring fault, probably behind the foot pedal connector...
