SOURCE: Viking sewing machine model 6430 will only sew backwards

Th cam stack gears have gummed up on you you can try getting the back cover off along with the side and soaking the machine down with wd-40 and running it while forcing the reverse button in and out if it breaks free try and soak up as much of the wd-40 as you can and then oil anything that moves. I know this may be discouraging but viking no longer supports this machine and you might be better off taking it to an older viking dealer for help.

bbragg77 is mostly correct. It is not the camstack. Although they will crack, but that is all together another problem. It is the stitch length/reverse mech. You can manually work it back and forth to free it and I like to use break cleaner to get it free then re lubricate. A good service shop can put you back in business. And yes Viking does not support 6000 series machines any longer.

SOURCE: Viking 2000 6430? sewing machine, only sews in reverse.

Your stitch length dial is stuck. Your machine is in need of oil. If you open the back of your machine and see the bit that moves when you turn you stitch length dial. oil that bit and warm it with your hair dryer. It should become loose. It take a bit of warming and working the oil into the machine. You have to repeat this process a few times.

I do have the service manual at sewingnz@gmail.com

SOURCE: how to clean a Viking 6430 sewing machine

You can find extensive information here: http://stitchesandseams.blogspot.com/2010/04/review-viking-6010-sewing-machine.html.
You really should get a manual. It will give you all the details about cleaning your machine. You start by opening anything you can (be careful with the screws and plates - I keep a magnet for holding these while I clean) Take a pipe cleaner and/or a small sewing machine brush and get out any lint. This is where you first need your manual. It will tell you how to clean the bobbing case. After all lint is removed, you will need to oil it in certain spots...again, you need the manual for this. Always use sewing machine oil in your machine. It is different than other oils. You can download your manual here: http://gotoes.org/sales/VikingSewingMachineManuals/ViewInfo.pl?Viking=1&Sewing_Machine_Model=6430. I think they charge $7 for it.

SOURCE: feed dog won't come up on my viking #1, is there a switch? tried turning hand wheel , is there a switch

you didn't put a model number in the question, yes, it's possible there is a switch or lever. if you have a manual it should have the information in it. but without being able to see the machine, I can't say for sure. try looking on youtube for a video. the next best thing I can suggest is calling a sewing machine shop in your area and ask them if they are familiar with the machine and ask them about the feed dog lever.

Husqvarna viking 6430 fabric dont move


There is a control to the right side of the bobbincase that might be in the wrong position. after selecting the proper position, manually rotate the handwheel to confirm that the feeddogs come up above the needleplate. if this does not work, take the machine to an authorized Viking dealer for repair.

Reverse sewing button stuck HELP!!


MOdel 6430 has the stitch length and buttonhole selector on the same knob. It is the one on the bottom right side of the machine. I believe you may have selected the buttonhole by pulling out on the large round knob. You need to turn the knob back to 0 zero and push in. This should return the machine to normal mode.Adjust your stitch length to 3 and try it. The reverse knob in the center should also stick out so that it becomes operational again.
