Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

Open Question

Viking Husqvarna 6360

I just inherited this machine. The cam in the back does not work (it falls right out). All I need it to do is a basic straight stitch (which it's doing a lovely job on) and a zigzag stitch. The dial where it looks like I can set it to zigzag just makes it go in reverse. I'm very familar with Singers, this is my first Viking I've ever worked with.

Did you turn the handwheel? The feed teeth will not come up until the machine is operated. Run it a few stitches and they will come up.

SOURCE: I am looking for a husqvarna viking stitch

As I wrote earlier, I also needed one. I purchased one today from The Stitching Post. Located at 101 E. Alex Bell Rd. Suite 176 Dayton,Ohio 45459 937-436-9200. I was told 170.00 but when I got there they were $64.00 and I got half off so, with tax it was $34.24!!! Maybe you could call and have them mail you one with the use of a credit card. They are used but they no longer make these. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I cleaned my Husqvarna Viking 6690 and now it

I hate to say it, but the 6690 was plagued with circuit board problems. That machine cost Viking a lot of heartache. I'm a bit surprised to see one still working. You didn't specify exactly what you did when cleaning or whether you took the covers off and disturbed the wiring. Check all the connections and plugs, but it might be dead. You can take it to a Viking dealer with experience with the 6690 for an evaluation.

SOURCE: Viking Husqvarna Model 6020 stitch selector will not turn.

look at the cam gear. This is the unit that the cam connects to. It could have a crack or be split completely. If there is a crack the cam stack will have to be replaced. The parts are hard to get and a good technician is needed.

How do I set the dials on husqvarna viking 6000 sewing machine


The "dial" in the back is for decorative stitches which require a "programmer" to be inserted with the stitch formation you want to form. For a straight stitch no cam is required in the back of the machine. The three dials on the front:

Upper Left: Stitch selector
Upper Right: Stitch lenght
Lower: Stitch width

Using the upper left dial select the straight stitch picture
Using the upper right, choose your stitch lenght
Using the lower, choose your needle position, left/center/right

How do sew a straight line on a viking 6360?


You may need to service the machine. One thing to check is the feed teeth are at least 1mm above the needle plate on the highest setting. You can remove the needle plate and check if there is lint keeping the teeth from rising. The upper right knob controls the stitch length set it at 3 for normal sewing. 6 would be a longer stitch.

Husqvarna Model 6360 reverse button stuck


This problem comes about due to lack of useage usually. If the machine has been sitting for some time the grease inside hardens. The stitch length regulator, the pattern selector and the buttonhole mechanism could all be contributing to your problem. To fix it properly all three dials should be remove from the machine, disassembled cleaned, assembled and oiled lightly with a teflon lubricant. Since so much is removed from the machine doing this job, every setting in the machine is checked and or reset. It's a major overhaul and costs about $350 and only a handful of Viking Techs in the country can do it.

How to thread my sewing machine? Husqvarna Classica 95


Suggest you contact an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. They can order you a user manual. Authorized dealers can be found at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

Brief description of probably how to thread from looking at a picture of a Classica 90 machine which should be similar -

Thread sits on spindle on backside. Pull thread straight across to upper left backside and fit in the metal guide. It should pull easily with only a little resistance. Pull thread forward across top toward you. Let thread fall between the metal disks (doesn't matter which one if more than one) and pull thread straight down. Pull thread slightly to the left to fit under a hook of some type and back up to fit through the large hook that moves up and down when the handwheel is turned. Come straight back down to needle and thread through eye of the needle. Just above the needle should be a thread guide (sideways hooking looking metal piece), slip the thread through it to hold thread close to needle. Hope this helps. Otherwise a local authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer will be glad to help you. Good luck.
