Viking 6430 - Hand Wheel is stuck - Please advise....

The hand wheel on my Viking 6430 is stuck so my needle bar isn't moving to sew. I removed the knob as well as the panel and when I push the pedal to sew, the bottom gears are turning, but the belt isn't because the inner part of the hand wheel is stuck. I've attempted to lube it up, but it's still not budging. I don't have the manual just yet, I'm currently waiting to receive a downloaded version that I purchased online. Please let me know if there's a way for me to fix this problem myself, and if so, how.

Also the hand wheel itself broke when I was attempting to turn it (old plastic), and though I glued the piece back on, I would like to know where I can buy a replacement because I'm not sure how long it will hold.

Any help with both of these would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance! :o)

SOURCE: reverse sewing button stuck HELP!!

MOdel 6430 has the stitch length and buttonhole selector on the same knob. It is the one on the bottom right side of the machine. I believe you may have selected the buttonhole by pulling out on the large round knob. You need to turn the knob back to 0 zero and push in. This should return the machine to normal mode.Adjust your stitch length to 3 and try it. The reverse knob in the center should also stick out so that it becomes operational again.

SOURCE: Viking Huskylock 910 Upper Looper problem...

You will find that it was most likely the top looper has moved to the left too far, undo the looper clamp and press the looper to the right by about 3mm. Then turn the machine over to see if it still hits anything, when the top looper comes up past the bottom looper there should be about 0.5mm clearance between the two. Try this first please.
Also the arm shaft may have moved. Trace the shaft back to where there is a clamp type crank with usually a hexagon head clamp screw. Loosen this and set the top looper so as the eye of it is just past the needle when it is all the way up and to the left.
You are correct in not using the machine under power, turn by hand when you think it is correct and make sure there is nothing hitting.

SOURCE: Viking sewing machine model 6430 will only sew backwards

bbragg77 is mostly correct. It is not the camstack. Although they will crack, but that is all together another problem. It is the stitch length/reverse mech. You can manually work it back and forth to free it and I like to use break cleaner to get it free then re lubricate. A good service shop can put you back in business. And yes Viking does not support 6000 series machines any longer.

SOURCE: Viking 2000 6430? sewing machine, only sews in reverse.

Your stitch length dial is stuck. Your machine is in need of oil. If you open the back of your machine and see the bit that moves when you turn you stitch length dial. oil that bit and warm it with your hair dryer. It should become loose. It take a bit of warming and working the oil into the machine. You have to repeat this process a few times.

I do have the service manual at sewingnz@gmail.com

Make sure that the bobbin winder stop is up. That is the little black post below the bobbin winder. If it is pressed down, the machine will not run.

SOURCE: the needle screw on my Viking 400 sewing machine broke off

If the screw broke off inside the holder, it will have to be drilled out.

Cover the feed dogs and any other open area on the machine before working on the holder.

If you do not have an offset drill and the tiny bit to do this, a professional sewing machine service person fix this for you.

Call to see if you can make an appointment for this proceedure so you do not have to leave the machine.

Hand wheel moving needle moving but will not sew cannot release hand wheel to turn in opposite direction


Do NOT turn the handwheel the reverse direction.

If your machine is mechanical, most likely it hasn't been cleaned and oiled for a long time. Old sewing machine dries out and turns to glue which then prevents parts from moving like they should.

How to Oil Vintage Sewing Machine

Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube is very good because it has little teflon beads. It also does not dry out like sewing machine oil will. Then applying heated air from a handheld hairdryer will help loosen it.

Do NOT oil plastic/nylon, cams, or belts.

Hand piece is very tight to turn and unable to use the machine


Make sure to clean/remove all the lint, thread, dust, etc. that may have built up in the bobbin area, around the feed dogs, and under the needle plate. Sometimes gunk build-up will prevent the hand wheel from turning. Remove the bobbin & bobbin case from the machine and the needle and see if the hand wheel will turn. If not, then it may be time for service.

My hand wheel is hard to move and will not make complete turn unless...

Help My Needle Hand Wheel are Stuck Sewing Machine Jammed

..

Jammed and needle bar will not move.no thread wrapped anywhere,hand wheel won't raise the bar either


1. Remove the needle and bobbin assemble completely.
2 Try to move the hand wheel - forcefully if necessary.
3. Place one drop of oil on race. That is the little dip that has been circled. The hook (pointed thing) must ride on this smoothly.
4. Try to move the hand wheel again. Back and forth until it will move without resistance.
5. Oil parts that move with metal against metal.
6. Replace the bobbin assembly. Try to rotate the hand wheel again. If it is ok you can replace the needle.
7. Try to rotate again. If it rotates smoothly you shouldn't have any further problems. If the needle strikes something under the throat plate you will need to get the sewing machine timed.

Sewing machine grinding and needle won't go up and down without force. Air and cloth cleaned what I could.


THIS IS HARD W/O BEING THERE. ANYWAY HERE ARE SOME IDEAS:
1. REMOVE BOBBIN, CARRIER AND CLEAN AREA. OIL IN THE RACE (UNDER WHERE THE CARRIER GOES)-ONE DROP ONLY. TRY TO HAND ROTATE. IF IT IS OK THEN THE BOBBIN CARRIER WAS INSTALLED WRONG.
2. MOVE THE NEEDLE BAR BY MOVING THE HAND WHEEL. PLACE ONE DROP OF OIL ON THE BAR.
3. REMOVE THE TOP OF MACHINE AND MONITOR ALL MOVING PARTS AND CLEAN (USE QUE TIP). ANY PARTS STUCK TOGETHER MAY NEED A SMALL AMOUNT OF CARBURETOR CLEANER. OIL ALL MOVING METAL PARTS THAT MAKE CONTACT WITH EACH OTHER.
4. UNDER THE MACHINE REMOVE THE LID AND CLEAN AND OIL JUST AS ABOVE.
5. TRY TO MOVE THE HAND WHEEL.
6. IF THIS STILL DOESN'T WORK THE BELT MAY BE OUT OF ALIGNMENT. THE BELT HAS TO BE DONE BY REMOVING THE HAND WHEEL. ONCE THE BELT IS ACCESSED THE BOLT UNDER THE MOTOR IS LOOSENED. IF POSSIBLE TRY TO APPLY THE FOOT PEDAL A LITTLE WHILE ADJUSTING THE BELT. IT SHOULD NOT BE REAL TIGHT BUT MUST BE IN ALIGNMENT. PAY ATTENTION TO THE AMOUNT OF TURNS IT TAKES TO REMOVE THE OUTSIDE SHINY PART OF THE HAND WHEEL SO IT IS EASIER TO SET IT PROPERLY.

Bernina 180 needle bar won't move up and down


This could be the needle bar clutch. Turn off machine. Unplug machine. Remove needle. Turn hand wheel in normal rotation 1/4 turn. Gently move needle bar up and down by hand you should feel a click and the needle bar will not move up and down easily now. Restart machine and test. If it works all is good. This is a result of the machine requiring professional attention. If you use basting stitches it will likely unclutch again.

Does not move the needle bar


Does the needle bar move when you turn the hand-wheel? It may have the bobbin winder engaged.

The needle is stuck in the Shark 612C model sewing machine, any solutions?


Try http://www.fixsewingmachine. com I also suggest that you clean bobbin case. Now, when needle is "stuck", this requires patience and care in "jiggling" the hand wheel to and fro until needle point begins to clear the jammed area. Carefully snip one thread that moves up under needle and jiggle hand wheel by carefully turning hand wheel toward you to see if you can move the take-up lever all the way up to the UP position. Look at bobbin case area and remove bobbin. Cut bobbin thread and remove bobbin case. Sweep gently with brush underneath case and carefully, gently sweep over the feed dogs, poking very ends of brush bristles into "teeth" area to remove lint, fuzz ball/s, and any loose thread/s. Raise presser foot, remove (possibly bent) needle. Insert new needle of appropriate size for fabric weight. Make sure needle pushed all the way up into needle bar groove, at side to back. Keep presser foot RAISED while rethreading. This allows thread to locate tension discs, and HOLD THREAD TAUT. Replace bobbin, making sure thread is EVENLY distributed on it. Imablanced bobbins cause jams, and bobbins with burrs and scratches can real havoc as well as the hook part of the shuttle where the bobbin fits. Smooth such areas with emery cloth carefully, ever so gently. Hope my suggestions are a solution for you. Jimmy

My viking 6570 sewing machine needle will not pick up the bobbin thread


Remove the bobbin case and lean the machine back. Bring the needle down as low as it will go using the hand wheel. Locate the tip of the needle in the bobbin area. Rotate the hand wheel forward and as the needle rises, you should see the tip of the hook cross the back side of the needle, moving left to right. If it is crossing below the eye of the needle, find a qualified repairman. If it crosses above the eye, try a new needle and make sure that the flat side is installed toward the back.

Hand wheel spins without moving the needle


I used to have an old Bernina that had an inner and outer hand wheel. Loosening the inner wheel disconnected the needle bar from the motor so you could wind the bobbin without running the needle up and down. It sounds to me like your machine has the same feature, but resistance on the needle makes the inner wheel loosen up. I don't know whether wrenching on it as tight as you can would be enough, or whether this is a symptom indicating that there is something loose internally in the connection between the inner and outer wheels. Good luck!
