Can't get seam former out

To remove the seam former (stitch pattern cam).

- Move your stitch selection dial so the white dot on the dial lines up with the red dot on the body of the machine. Then you pull the cam out.

It can be difficult to remove if the cam has been sitting in the machne for a long time.

My viking 6030 sewing machine is so hard t get going it's nearly impossible. Bobbin fills ok just the needle moving parts are very stiff. I can't figure out how to get inside the head at the front to...

Try spraying WD40 on the moving parts to see if it frees up...If it does free up, then lubricate it with sewing machine oil. The WD40 is a cleaner not a geed lubricant. Normally the problem will be where the top shaft goes thru the machine casting at the handwheel

Where do I oil a husqvarna viking lily 545 sewing machine? How do I get a manual? Would anyone like the useless video manual?

Many Viking machines do not require oiling. Viking does have manuals online for many of thier machines, I don't know which ones specifically.

I have a husqvarna viking model 6030 & the stitch length is stuck - it will only move forward in tiny stitches

Sounds like the feed stepper motor needs replacing (or gunk cleaned out of). You might want to take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page -
Good luck.

Husqvarna Viking Sweden Model 6030

On all sewing machines there is a button or lever which makes the machine go backward. The button could be stuck, if so put a drop of oil on it and try to release it. If there is a lever that has been raised which puts the machine in reverse, simply lower it to the lowest position. This should solve the problem.

Reverse only?


I too just aquired a husqvarna viking 6030 that was stuck in straight-stitch reverse. No forward, no zig zag, no button hole, no cam stitches. I also suspected a broken spring, since the reverse button was slack and had no resistance. But after inspecting every moving part, I realized it was just stuck from many years of non-use. I finally got it free today! I had used some Tri-Flow oil and applied it sparingly to all moving points (but not belts or motor). I exercised all the buttons and like another poster (either here or elsewhere, not sure) I used my hair dryer to apply heat to the inside of the machine through the cam slot. After you remove the white cover on back of machine that holds the two spool spindles, you will see a formed aluminum part just behind the reverse dial that has a rounded-pointed protrusion which sort of looks like a fat flat head screwdriver. It is supposed to travel in an up-down motion when reverse button is pressed. I used a flat head driver to coax its movement, and once it began moving, I continued with heat and drops of oil. Good luck.
