This should be your machine: shows that they have this downloadable in Adobe PDF format here:

#37 in the list as of me posting this. You can get a CD version too but you'll just pay more and wait longer for the same thing. Once you have it print the manual (preferably both sides to keep it small) ang you'll have it. You can also peruse eBay to see if anyone is selling a manual but I doubt that will yield regular results. The machine looks to be pretty basic and standard but it's best you have the manual to get the most out of the machine. Also be sure to check the cleaning and lubrication section and go through the process so that the machine is in top working order before you put it into regular use - saves a lot of headaches.

SOURCE: Viking 190 sewing machine stuck on backstitch

Found the problem (s) with Viking stuck on backstitch!!!

Two problems:

A: machine is "gummed-up" form old grease.
Solution: degrease machine with a high quality degreaser.. I used a spray electrical degreaser from an automotive store. Turn the machine up-side-down to preform this!
Then relubricate machine. Use a high quality sweing machine lubricant! Also lubricate the inner parts with a qigh quality "Sewing machine" oil.

B: Found that the return spring from foreward to backward was tired.
Soultion: Replace with slightly stronger spring from local hardware store.

If you need pictures, I took very detailed pictures of the reverse mechanism and "return to forward" spring.

How to change under tension on Husqvarna optima 190 selectronic

The bobbin has a tiny screw on the side that is the tension setting. Turn it a slight 1/8 turn and test (a small turn makes a big adjustment). Be sure to mark the original setting of the screw before making any adjustments so you can back out the adjustments if it's not working.

Would like to get a owners manual for my husqvarna 190 selectronic sewing machine. I am having trouble with upper tension and need to make sure I am threading it properly, any suggestions

Here's an ebay that has one for $ 15.00. There are others.

Generic threading:
1. Go from right to left.
2. As you feed you will come to the tension. Make sure it is fed through the tension disc or it won't work.
3. Feed through the take up lever.
4. Feed through the final holes to the needle. Final little pull to check for snags.
5. Put pressure foot down and give little tug. It should have some resistance, but not excessive. Usually four on the tension control is a good starting point.
6. Check your bobbin for pressure. Pull out the bobbin case and let it hang from your finger with the bobbin inserted. While you bob it back and forth it should extend one inch. Adjust the tension as you need to. Put one drop on the little ring under the case. (It looks like a race track).
7. As you use the machine you may have to adjust the upper tension as you need.

My Mum has lost the feed dog for her Husqvarna Optima 190, does anyone know where I could get her a replacement as they do not make them anymore.

Feed dogs are still available for that machine. Part number is 412006601. Probably will cost you $20-$25.
I recommend that you find a dealer in your area using this link:

They can order them for you from Husqvarna Viking
