Question about Husqvarna Viking 1
The machine is not feeding the fabric through. I have to pull behind on the fabric to stitch forward. Also the reverse button is stuck. It seems to be a feed dog problem, but I've looked under the plate and it looks fine. Is the reverse button the problem?
Anyone know who can repair such as old machine (over 25yrs old) in MA?
The older 6XXX series are the best machines Viking ever made. But they have one flaw - if the button hole mechanism is not regularly serviced and used, it will eventually stick and the machine will only sew in reverse. This can also happen if you turn the knob backwards when in button hole mode.
I always tell my customers to make a few button holes every time they use the machine. This helps to keep the mechanism free and working between servicing.
Unfortunately the fix is not a DIY consumer project. It requires knowledge and expertise in disassembling the machine and re-aligning the parts. Expect to pay anywhere from $25 to $75 in addition to the regular servicing fee.
