Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I need a capacitor for the motor on an old viking sewing machine model 2000sl.

No more details. The part required is shaped like a very small rectangle with wire antennae protruding from sides. Writing on part is : 250v-mpLDS (+s) fou36mhz 0.1uF @ X. C6/77 PME GPF-40/+85o. This is written on the belly of the capacitor. Hope you can help.

Try Mouser or Newark electronics Call their number(s) and give them the info. They can look it up in their cross reference books. If you are lucky they will have it in stock. Otherwise you might weight a few weeks.

SOURCE: Viking Husqvarna model 6440 gets stuck in reverse

There are numerous things that can cause this, some very simple, some less so.
1. Fortunatly, the most common one is also the simplest to cure. When you turn the selector (upper left) knob between stitches, one of the things that is happening when you feel the resistance is that it is lifting the followers off the camstack so that it can move to another stitch. When the camstack is normally doing its job, lifting the feed cam follower is what puts the mechanism in reverse. So, while the selector is between stitches, the machine is temporarily in reverse. Also, the dots where the dial is to be placed to change the camstacks is between stitches, so if the dial is on these dots or anywhere else except snapped into a stitch, you will get nothing but reverse.
2. The buttonhole mechanism is stuck in the reverse portion of the buttonhole. Usually if this is the case, the needle position will also be stuck on the left side, and the width control /buttonhole control will not function correctly. Usually you can correct this yourself and I'll explain how in a bit. It is usually caused by lack of use of the buttonhole mechanism.
3. Either the arm that connects the camstack to the stitch length block or the block itself is stuck. Both these parts are spring loadedto bring them in the forward position, so long periods of rest are a contributing factor.
All of these causes except for the first one are because of the mechanism not being exercised frequently enough. These older Vikings do not like to sit still very longYou should fully exercise all the knobs at every sitting.
Ok, try this fix. And this is to free up the mechanisms that are probaby stuck from non use and old oil and grime buildup. Take your seamformer (cam) out of the back. Find a hairdryer and blow some heat in there for awhile. This will soften up any hard oil or grease that may be causing the mechanisms to stick. Then if you can it would be best to have what is called TRI-FLOW oil (the BEST) and spray or drop quite a bit into there covering the mechanisms and let it soak in. You might try a good sewing machine oil soaking or WD-40 in small amounts. Little by little test your knobs, slowly working whatever is stuck lose. Never force the issue. Small amounts of movement little by little will eventually free it up.
Good luck. Hope this helps. If this does not help you may have to take it to a technician and hopefully you won't find out that your take up slide isn't broken which is a major job.

The plastic dries out over time, and this is what may have happened. You could probably remove it by exerting a great deal of force, but will most likely break either the cam itself or the part where the cam is inserted. You could try squirting a little lubricant (maybe Tri Flow?) and leaving it for a while to penetrate before trying again to remove the cam. Otherwise, it would be best to take it in to a repair shop where an expert can work on it and maybe replace any parts that are no longer working properly.

How to fix a Husqvarna sewing machine 2000SL 6460 stuck in reverse


A machine stuck in reverse usually means the step motor controlling the movement of the feed dogs has gone bad. You will need to have it serviced by a Viking Service Tech.

My husqvarna sewing machine has started sewing by itself when I plug it in and turn it on. I can't stop it sewing by itself. How do I stop this I've checked all buttons and plugs


What model is your machine? If it is a computerized model with a Start/Stop button, I would check to be sure that button is not permanently depressed. The next thing I would do is check the food pedal - it may be stuck in a position that makes it run straight away when the power is turned on (maybe a small bit of "stuff" is stuck down the side between the pedal and the part that sits on the floor???).

I think also that some of the upper end machines might have settings for disabled persons and maybe yours has this facility turned on?
