  1. The other videos will not open. I've tried two different browsers. Any way to get a link to the DIY Viking 6000 series video?

    I am servicing a 6030 and I am not sure if the decorative stitches are not working at all or if I am just not installing the cams correctly as I have never seen them in action. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!

  2. I have a Viking #1+ and there seems to be no voltage on the LEDs to the information panel. What do I do? I cannot find the service manual anywhere and I have no dealer here. I have the machine in pieces and would like to know how to proceed. Any advice? I am an engineer and can handle what needs doin.

  3. Hello. Total novice here, doing my best. I live in a remote place with no sewing machine repair. Husqvarna 6440, bought new in 1975! Capacitor smoked, took the machine apart to get to it, removed it. All is well except that there is a little spring left over! It's about .5" long unstretched, with a loop on one end and a hook on the other. Can you tell me where this goes? It must be from the motor area. Thank you!!!

  4. I have a 6430 Viking. It sews well, but it will not zig zag now. It will stitch to the right or to the left side of the needle placement, it just won't alternate back and forth. Is this an easy fix?

  6. Help. My Designer 1. Bobbin filler (top right on machine) suddenly stopped when only half filled. Now it is impossible to dislodge it from the spindle. It will turn freely but will not come off . What can I do? Shirley

    1. Shirley go to http://support.sewingnz.com/forums/forum/sewing-machine-support/husqvarna-viking-sewing-machines/ and start a topic and add some pictures. I'll be able to help you then. I'm not sure how it is stuck on the spindle.

  7. My #1 Husqvarna 1200 will no longer do anything side to side, only straight stitches. Is that fixable? Is it a motor replacement or electronic problem?
    Thanks for any input.

    1. Yes,some people do remove them and think they are a nuisance. Their function is to prevent electromagnetic interference (EMI) with other appliances. According to regulations you should have them and as a registered electrical worker I replace them.

  9. I have a model 150 that is hardly used for its 25 plus year old age. It fried what I believe is a capacitor (a approx 1" square electrical device located after plug behind access door under machine). Local shop here says you can't buy this part anymore. Can anyone identify the part or send me in the right direction? Can provide picture if desired. Thanks,

    1. The top tension is too low or your machine is not threaded correctly. Make sure your tension is set on 5 and that there is no cotton or fluff stuck in between your top tension plates. You can just use a old needle to check for any.
      Also make sure your machine is threaded correctly and that your needle is fitted correctly.

    2. It is normally low top tension causing bunching at the bottom, but sometimes no tension on your bobbin case too. It must just have a small amount of tension but not totally loose.

    3. Less likely: The hook or hook race cover could have needle damage and your cotton can catch on that. It could also be a case where your hook race cover shifted backwards and you cotton can't glide over your hook.

    4. Sometimes your bobbin case does not go in properly due to cotton stopping it from clipping in or maybe your bobbin could be damaged.

  16. I have a Husqvarna 6440 and I cannot remove the seam former. I have the dots lined up as they should be. I have not had this trouble before. Ideas?

    1. Use a hair dryer to warm the shaft from the back (cover off). After sitting, the grease gets sticky. As a matter of fact, the hair dryer trick will free up lots of stuck things inside. Work the knobs and levers as you do, and then apply penetrating oil as needed. Do not force the cam as there are 3 tiny prongs you do not wabt to break off. Also, have front knobs set to the white dot (cam selector), and stitch width to 0.
