Solved, Bernia 1130, needle won't move

Hope this might help someone with the "basting, use it or lose it" problem.
Our machine would run, but the needle would not move up or down.
First service company said it was worn out and would have to take to a authorized Bernia dealer to be sent back to Bernia.
Authorized Dealer said would cost 400 to 600.00 to repair.
We had previously read that a homemade mixture of 50/50 Acetone and automatic transmission fluid, out performed most all commercial penetrating oils, so we tried it. Sprayed it in around the top of the needle shaft.
About 30 seconds later, our machine was working again. Note: we had previously tried Liquid Wrench, but it failed to give results.
Good luck.
