Mark Forums Read. Free Manual Source for Husqvarna-Viking. Thread Tools. If you purchase a machine without a manual, a lot of time gets spent finding one. Don't pay for any Viking-Husqvarna machine manuals! While they break the bank with the cost of cords and foot controls, this manufacturer at least provides free complete manuals on their website IF you find the correct link.
Try it without that portion. That's how it has always worked for me. Scroll down to your machine, click, and upload the pdf in full page form. My eyes like that! I truly hope this helps someone. Now, I just need to find the powercord plug for my HV Classica and foot pedal that works with the cord. Good thing the machine is like new or the cost wouldn't make it worthwhile!

Shifted cam gear Model and ended up with the zig-zag out of sync, i.
The cam lobes lift about 45 degrees too late. Cam ridges are exactly in line with the ridges on the pattern cam ridges, so the cam should be OK.

Using the service manual I was able to remove the covers and determine that the set screws had stripped the drive shaft, the v-belt pulleys were installed incorrectly, and the stop for the bobbin mechanism was installed incorrectly.

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. Do not use WD40 on it. Marvel Mystery oil will not leave a varnish and stick gears and cams. 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.

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. 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?? 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. Have a look at your motor brushes.You know I have often wondered how good these machines after perusing the shelves of eBay and watching them get snapped up.
Now I know they have a tendency for crakced cams I'll steer clear of them. Thank you for the informative post! I have found with my that when they freeze, usually it is they are gummed up and if you can use PB Blaster on the internal gears and keep working with it it will free up. Sometimes, however, the gears are cracked. I have 3 machines. Hello, I've had a Viking stored away for 20 years and just recently brought it out, only to find it frozen solid.

The series. I have had the opportunity to work on several series Viking machines in the past year. They are in a class of their own and do require some special handeling.
Every one that I have delt with has had a crack in the internal cam and needed to be replaced. Other common problems are slugish operation, stuck in reverse and no zigzag.

One of them is the Husqvarna Viking Like most other models and brands of sewing machines, the Husqvarna Viking requires regular maintenance and occasionally some repair work.
This is not something that requires a professional. Most repairs can be done at home in just minutes. Also, supplies can be found in most craft stores, either online or at brick-and-mortar locations. By completing repairs on your own, you can save time and money. If parts of the Husqvarna Viking are jammed, they may need oil. Sewing machine oil can be purchased at almost any craft store. It comes in a small squeeze bottle that will allow you to dab oil into the tight interior moving portions of the sewing machine.
While doing this, it is important to focus on areas of the machine that come into contact with one another while moving. This is a common area for jams and sticking to occur.
A dull or broken needle in the Husqvarna Viking will prevent the fabric being sewn from being properly punctured.
Therefore, the thread will never correctly stitch through the fabric. New needles can be purchased at many craft and sewing supply stores. Removing the old needle and inserting the new needle in the same place will allow for proper sewing to once again occur.
This same repair or replacement is also handy for a needle that may be incorrectly sized for the Husqvarna Viking. Be sure to purchase the correct needle based on the machine's model number, which can be found on the machine itself or in the owner's manual.
Wire with coating that is worn or torn can lead to sparking in the machine. This can also lead to electrical shorting and safety hazards if the wire is exposed to moisture. The machine can completely stop working if the wire is visible. Wrapping these areas with electrical tape is a way of restoring coating on the wires.
Electrical tape can be found at most hardware stores. You will not have to use anything specifically made for the Husqvarna Viking. This is also more affordable than having the entire machine rewired. Replacing old, worn or damaged bobbins will allow the Husqvarna Viking to run smoothly once again.
The bobbins are made of a thin metal and are responsible for holding some of the thread used in the sewing process.
