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 overload message is usuall due to a bind in the mechanical function of the machine. When the motor has an extra "load" caused by something like a tight belt or dry bearing, it "overloads" the motor and the error message is displayed. It is doubtful your problem is computer related. Either way a trip to your service tech is required. If you continue to sew with it, you do run the risk of possible damage to some other parts of your machine. The computer portion of your Husqvarna is guaranteed for 5 years and the mechanical parts carry a 20 or 25 year guarantee depending on when you purchased your machine. A copy of your bill of sale from a Husqvarna Viking dealer or a stamped warranty card is the proof of purchase needed to obtain warranty replacement of parts. Labor is only guaranteed for 1 year.

I own one too. To correct the bottom thread tension, you need to start with the highest number first then gradually turn the knob down ( bit by bit) to about 4 and see if that will work for you. If not then take it in for service.

Take an example of the problem to a Viking store and talk with someone knowledgeable about embroidery. Generally, a "birds nest" under the fabric relates to improper upper thread tension but the additional variables of type of thread, type of fabric, type of backing, and needle size and type can all play a part.

How can I program a full name into my 1+Husquvarna Sewing machine?


I have the #1 and it should be similar in programming if not the same.

Instructions for the #1 (1200) -- Programming Block Letters
(one model down from the #1+ Husqvarna)
From the machine instruction page for letters and numbers

Ready:
  • .Fabric Woven-medium, stitch & tear
  • .Enter: Woven-medium on your sewing advisor
  • .Consult Info display: Presser Foot B

Program:
Insert Cassette B
  • .Touch SELECT function to PROG
  • .Advance to an empty memory
  • (->) means arrow: .Touch H-> U-> S-> Q-> V-> A-> R-> N-> A (STOP) -> REP

Sew:
  • .Place Stitch & Tear against the wrong side of your fabric.
  • .Stitch the word HUSQVARNA. Easy!
  • .Now, program your name and today's date. Stitch on your sample.

Smaller sizes of letters
You can program a number of letter sizes by - the width before entering the letter. You may want to enter the first letter of a name at 6.0 width and the other letters narrower.

Correcting Errors
You may clear any single stitch but the first one on a program. When the cursor is under the first stitch and you touch CLR, the entire program is erased.

NOTE: The cursor designates the first letter to be sewn.

I need to download a manual for a viking 330 model sewing machine


I don't think that Viking allows free downloads. I think that you have to buy one from them, either their site or at a Viking sewing center, ie JoAnn Fabrics

Looking for stitch cassettes for Viking 1+ -


Check with your local Husqvarna dealer. They are easy to save even if an old machine has been thrown away. Many dealers will have a supply of used cards.

I am trying to embroider something for the first time on my viking #1 husqvarna. Do I need presser foot Q/ or R/ .If it's R,I can't find it-what does it look like? I need someone to walk me thru the steps...


embroider on #1+:
If it's a #1+ I recommend the Q (the spring works better) it's hard to put on, but worth it.
Here we go:
1>Turn off machine (always when installing or removing embroidery unit)
2>Install Q Foot. Always leave presser foot pressure (on left end of machine) at 6 for presser foot Q
3>Insert Embroidery Card
4>Insert Embroidery cassette (matching #’s with card)
5>turn on machine
6>Turn on embroidery unit (on cassette)
7>Select design
7>Thread for color 1
8>press reverse to start the machine embroidering....weeeeeeeee!
