Husqvarna Viking Cam Replacement

Husqvarna Viking 6000 Sewing Machine Cam Replacement 

This cam gear replacement applies to most of the older Husqvarna Viking sewing machines. It is not a difficult repair. The sewing machine should have a good service and clean. Make sure that the buttonhole Mechanism is clean and not sticking.

  1. I have a 2000 SL. The cam on the front right stopped working properly. It would only do a straight stitch AND the reverse button stopped functioning as well. I took it to a repairman at the local husky dealership and was told that it was unrepairable. I then purchased a $4600 Designer 2. I never got rid of my 2000 SL. Now I want to try to fix it b/c I feel it is better at sewing certain things than my computerized machine. Any thoughts on repairing this front cam? Can i do it myself? Is it worth it?

  2. Can anyone tell me where I can purchase the part (don't know what it is exactly called) you're replacing in this video? Regards, Kathrine

  3. The video to replace the cracked cam and the instructions in the video are straight forward. However, when I lifted the connecting arm off to get to the pin, the entire piece came off and I am not sure how to replace this piece and where and how to reattach the spring. Any suggests or details of how this piece fits would be appreciated.

  5. I replaced the cam gear, problem is reinstalling the connecting arm for zig-zag. The piece is not broken, just disconnected. And I got the new cam from sewingpartsonline, who were great to work with. I just need a picture of how the connecting arm fits in and where the spring connects. Make sense?

  8. Hello,
    I have a Viking Selectronic 6570. I had the cam gear out of the machine because I thought it might have broken and I don't know how the spring goes back on. :/
    Thanks for any feedback,
    TB

  9. I see how you do the cam in the back (sort of), but my problem on my Husqvarna 6010 is the stitch width knob won't pull out. Is that a cam problem too? Or something else?

  10. The stitch width knob on my Husqvarna 6010 won't pull out. Is this a cam problem? Or something solved more easily? Just discovered this when I went to do my first buttonhole.

    1. Likely a sticky buttonhole unit: This will video should help. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fsCIOM7Bn8U&list=PL770BF19B107BD992&index=8

  11. I was trying to free up the reverse (stuck in reverse) on my 6010 and I removed the spring that seems to connect the reverse button. I don't know where to reattach it. Any help?
