  1. Hi,
    I have a Viking 6460. The feeder dog moves up and down but does not move back and forth to move the cloth. Any ideas? Regards.

    1. Take the back off and wd40 the reverse section move it back and forth to free it. Once free oil it. With sewing machine oil only.

  2. Hi There

    Make sure your feeder are up.

    It could be that your machines stitch regulator is sticking and needs a clean. You will have to remove the back cover for that and heat the sticking parts with a hair dryer to melt the old oil.

    Maybe there is some dirt stuck under your needles plate.

    Hope that helps.

  3. Hi, I have a Viking 6570. It seemds to have some kind of elec problem.My 1st one I have used since the 80's.The machine light comes on when plugged in. I have kept it clean but have used it alot. Repair people have not been able to fix it.I then got one off of ebay and it has been fine.I had it tuned up when I got it.I tried the newer foot on older and it still wouldn't work,just light does. ( and vice versa). OK,now the second one has gotten a hitch in the startup of pushing on the pedal, but you could push the wheel and the motor would start. And as of today the light comes on only on it too?? Any ideas? Would any of your videos help me on this? I am pretty mechanically inclined and have access to tools( elec,etc). Thanks for your time, BD

  4. Have a look at your motor brushes. They take a long time to wear out normally. Could be that you need to change your foot control.

    Normally if you turn your hand wheel and your machine starts again: Brushes or damaged motor.

    If you have a basic Multi Meter you can test to see if you get a reading from your foot control and pressed down. You test by the two points on the foot control lead.

    Make sure your machine is disconnected from the power source!

    Hope that helps

  6. I have a viking 460. I have had it since it was brand new. I love it. But recently when I push the foot control you have to push it almost to the floor before the machine will start. Then when it does it is going very fast. Is it the motor or the foot control

  7. Hi, I have a 5610 and it shows great, except the reverse button is stuck. I can go forward, but can't backtack. The button is just frozen. What can I do to un-stick it?

    Many thanks...

  8. Go to this youtube link.

    It needs some oiling and a hairdryer.

  10. HI!

    I've just found an old Husqvarna 21e (I have a 21a before and I love that machine!). There is a problem however. The reverse and stitching length adjustments doesn't work.

    When I press the reverse button, the button moves in but never comes back out again. It feels (and looks) as it is loose. There is no tension at all. You have to pull it back out again.

    When I turn the stitching length dial it turns but nothing changes.

    I tried to make a little video that shows what's happening on the back end. You can see it here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JX1rjy8kjeM I tried to compare it to my 21a but they doesn't look the same.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!

    1. Hi There

      Your stitch length cam is sticky and needs a good clean

      Have look at on of my videos athttp://husqvarna-viking-service-repair.blogspot.co.nz/

      You can warm the stitch length guide up and lubricate it. That should help to release it.

  11. Well. I think that I know now. It is the same issue as you described on your youtube-video. And also the spring that is supposed to push back the button is broken.

    I'm not sure if I will be able to pull this of yet.

  12. I wrote up a short story + some images on my missing spring. If anyone has one laying around I would be happy :)

  13. Hi There

    I had a look the picture, you can reuse the spring. Just bent it like the original. You might have one winding less. I don't think it will make a difference.

    That unit should move freely. It controls the stitch length.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I can see the broken spring compared to the video. You most unlikely to find a original part. I'll shorten the spring by one loop and re-bend it at the same point as the original.

    You can normally bend it once, more it might brake.

  15. I purchased a used VIKING 2000SL site unseen for my daughter. The booklet that came with the machine says it's a model 6430 but the plate on the bottom of the machine says model 6000. The handwheel is VERY difficult to turn. When plugged in, the light goes on and I can hear the motor humming as it attempts to turn but that's all. After looking over your videos, I had the courage to open up the side panel and have a look. The drive belt that goes from the top pulley down to the pulley (by the bobbin winder mechanism) seems kind of loose. Is there an adjustment for tightening this belt? Is is difficult to change the belt? This machine also has problems with the buttonhole selector button and the reverse feed button but after following your videos, they have loosened up slightly. I'll keep working on them. Will 3-in-one oil work as a lubricant?

    1. Hi There

      Never use 3-in-one oil. It will work fine till it dry. Then your machine will even get stuck more. If you have used 3-in-one oil, try to clean out as much as possible and use a penetrating oil. Any hardware shop will be advice you to a good product.

      I've had success using Methylated Spirits, It can help to dissolve old oil.

      It can take a long time to get fresh oil worked in. I've spend hours on machines before to get them going.

  16. I have a Viking 6570 that I purchased at a resale store. It worked fine when I tested it but I let it sit for a few months and now the stitch selector is stuck. Any suggestions? Thanks!

  17. Hello,
    I have an old Husqvarna ZigZag Model 1020. It was working fine, then all of a sudden the machine has somehow gotten stuck. When I press the pedal the machine makes a sound and seems as if it's trying to move, but nothing happens. Almost like something is blocked internally or something. Any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Joseph

    1. Hi There
      Have a look at this video, it will point out problem points.
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=No_XTJa9-ao

      The hook race behind your bobbin could be dry and make sure there is no cotton stuck around your take up lever.

      Check if your Bobbin winder is still working, then at least you know it is not your motor.

      Give it a good clean and oil.

  18. I have a husqvarna 6570. The button hole cam is frozen and because of that my needle is out of alignment. I have viewed your videos but can not get to the cam from the side view to move it manually as suggested. I have heated the area and have been able to move the knob when the button cam is not engaged but the needle is still not moving. Am I missing something?

    1. Hi There

      This part of the videos should explain it else you can send me pics and I'll try and help.

      I added a extra video to this page.

  19. In the video you can see the buttonhole cam. On my machine it is behind the metal plate. I can see it from the back of the machine but don't have the leverage to turn it. In your video you say that you will explain something later in the video. What were you trying to show? Should I be tring to move the arm from the threaded side?

  22. I have a Viking husqvarna #1plus. It is still under warranty, but the thing that holds the needle is apparently going out, and the dealer says he can't get the part. Is anyone aware of a parts supplier that I can contact, and for that matter what the name of the part is.

  23. I have a viking 5610 machine that I have owned for almost 40 years. I bought it brand new when I was 16 and it's the only machine I've ever owned. It has been a great machine but in the last several years it has had what I can only call "timing issues". If I sew over anything with bulk - or sometimes for no reason at all, it seems to catch inside the machine. The only thing I can do it to take it apart behind the bobbin (sometimes wasting a half hour or so), and manually turn the black plastic casing on a gear until, through trial and error, the threads will interlock again. Then I have to put the whole business back together again. This is becoming very old, as my time for sewing is very limited. I took it in for repair and I swear all they did was the same thing I do over and over again as I sew. Is there a replacement part associated with this problem that I could lead a repair person to that would actually solve my problem for good? Please help!

  24. I bought a 2000 SL but it's stuck in reverse. The reverse button has no tension in it it pops in and out almost as if it's not connected to anything but a little piece of metal pushes through a slot holding it in place, and it only slides half way down the slot never settling in to the right end. Help!!!!! Please ;)

  25. I am confused with all the model numbers referred here, my number isn't even close! I have a sewing machine model: lily 545, no other numbers. On the bottom of the machine, type: 600 listed sewing machine: 790c. I have no other documentation. Machine was purchased in 2000, and it was about $1500 I think. I would like to be able to service this machine myself, as I can't afford a pro. Is this the correct manual for my machine?
    Thanks, Amy

  27. Hi,

    I shifted cam gear on my Model 6030 (huge thanks for the video!) but ended up with the zig-zag out of sync, i.e. needle doesn't reach it outermost sideways position until it's well past the needle plate and down in the bottom position (which also means that it makes a sideways sliding through the fabric - ouch!). The cam lobes lift and releases about 45 degrees too late.

    Cam lobes are however exactly in line with the lobes on the pattern cam wheels, so the cam gear as such should be OK.

    I must have shifted position of something else when I fixed the buttonhole-wheel (and THANKS for that video as well!!!)- the follower to that wheel got out of position and fell down into the machine - took quite some time to get in in position again...)


    Any ideas on how to adjust? (other than trying to adjust the cam followers)

    Thanks!

  32. I bought a Viking 6460 second hand a few months ago. I had it serviced and they fixed the skew needle alignment. After that it worked like a dream until now, after 2 weeks of not being used. I tried to swap cams and the cam no longer secures into place. I can feel the pegs get "stuck" into the gaps but when I press the cam in it no longer clicks in. I tried pressing and turning the selector dial at the same time but that doesn't work. Now with Blue selected the needle alignment is so skew that the needle hits the plate (hopefully this is due to no cam being present?). When I looked at the cam mechanism I saw that there is a loose piece of oddly shaped wire at the base on the shaft the cam fits onto. The wire partially covers a gap or 2, despite me trying to rotate it a little to move it away from the gaps. I hope you can help me please.

  35. I have a Viking 6570. It has started to "race" when sewing - foot pedal does not control the speed or stop the machine. It might sew fine for a few seconds, but then kicks into a dangerously fast speed. If I gear it down with the bobbin winder control, it still sews fast, but I can control it. I don't know if it is the foot pedal switch or the motor control switches. Can you help? Thank you.

  38. Hi! I bought a Viking 6440 and as I was sewing, the reverse button got stuck pushed in. We fixed it, but noticed that you can't use the reverse button when the stitch length is at 0. Is this normal? Or is there something wrong with my machine? Also, how do you oil it? The manual doesn't tell me how to do that. Thanks!
