SOURCE: Replacing the cam-stack in my Viking 6440

The cam stack can come out quite easily but putting it back in has some danger to it. The screw that holds the mechanism guide pin is somewhat tricky to get back in and if you cross the threads you've ruined your machine because the part is no longer available that the srew goes through. If you cross the threads it pitches the guide and your dial on the front of the machine that selects the different stitches won't work. If you shine a light in the back of the machine you can see it the camstack is cracked.

Have you searched the internet?

How do i dismantel a viking sewing machine 6000 model 6440?

You can remove the rear cover by taking out two screws on the back cover and a screw at the lower rear corner on the side. With this cover removed you can see most of the internal levers and mechanism and be able to access some (not all) components.

Can't get seam former out

To remove the seam former (stitch pattern cam).

- Move your stitch selection dial so the white dot on the dial lines up with the red dot on the body of the machine. Then you pull the cam out.

It can be difficult to remove if the cam has been sitting in the machne for a long time.

Machine only sewes in reverse have cleaned and lubed machine

If this is a 2000, 5000 or 6000 series Husqvarna Viking, you have not cleaned the reverse mechanism fully. It will come loose when completely cleaned and lubed.

Dog feed with husqvarna viking sewing machine model 6440 does not work

You should join the yahoo group "vikingsewingmachinespre1980". Bill will take very good care of you. I'm new to that group and have gotten every question I've asked answered. This is just for pre-1980 Vikings which includes the 6000 series - including the 6440. Good luck.

Cannot snap decorative stitch cam back in

What model machine are you using? If it is one of the 2000 series machines (might be labelled 6430 or something else but starting with 6000), from memory you need to align the knobs on the front to the "dot" before you remove or insert a new cam.
