Question about Husqvarna Viking 1
The tiny part that goes thru the needle to catch the thread.....isnt going thru the needle anymore. Can I fix this?
Yes, I fix them all the time. You will need very good eye sight as the wire/metal hook is very small. If you get at an angle where you can see how the hook lines up between the metal flaps that hug the needle, the hook will probably be off center. You will need something very flat, but strong. I have use the exact-o-knife blade, in the handle of course, a knife, and a tiny screw driver. The hook has to line up vertically and horizontally. What usually happens is when we thread the needle it did not line up exactly, and putting pressure on the white tab, bends the hook. Bend it back and you are in business. If the threader does not line up horizontally, the needle threader may have slid down the shaft. This take a special tool. I purchased mine at Sears tools. There are 2 screws on the back of the threader. Move the needle to the highest position and after loosening the 2 screws, you can slide the threader up and down on the silver shaft, this is trickier, because the shaft moves up and down and rotates as it gets close to the needle. I use calipers/hemostats to hold the shaft while I line up the hook.
Hope this helps.
