Question about Sewing Machines
The serger will do a regular overlock stitch just fine, but will not ''roll'' the rolled edge stitch... just a smaller overlock stitch that sticks out past the edge. The dealer had never done a rolled edge stitch on this machine. I have tried over the years to get it to work, figured it was my lack of serger knowledge - but I stumped the expert!! Bought the machine from a quilter friend 10 yrs ago or so. I did just what the manual said with tensions, settings, left needle only. Dealer said never heard of using left only, just right needle only. Tried it very gently, seemed to not want to go all the way down, so did not force it. Any ideas??!!
Make sure the chain stitch thread is threaded exactly as it should be, make doubly sure the thread comes off the bobbin vertically and runs through all eyes smoothly. Any faults in the threading causes extra tension at the needle despite what the tension is set on.
If this is not the cause then the needle depth and the looper timing needs checking.

Couple of things I could think of: tension disks need cleaning, there is a site that tells how to clean them, maybe 2 as I recall. Other thing is it is a much older serger, (I have one I am slowly working on to bring up to working level), so it could be that a tension spring internally has lost its tension. It might need a trip to the repair man if that is the case. Another thing is are you using correct needles for the machine? Have you changed them recently? Even new needles can be bad, so if you have to change three times to triple check it can be worth it.

The parts catalogs show this part as obsolete.
Try Googling the top Husqvarna Viking dealers to find one with spare parts from junker machines. Most dealers have a good supply of used plates.

You can try ebay but be sure to know what you are looking for since a lot of cords are very similiar.
3rd party vendors which might have it:
contact authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer and they should be able to order one from Husqvarna Viking. A list of dealers close to you can be found at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us
