Question about Husqvarna Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Husqvarna 6440 - sounds like a traction engine

Took it to a repairer who said, '' There's a link (plastic and metal) that's broken, which is now obsolete so cannot repair.''

I do not know to which link they are refering - if I could find a workshop manual it might help. Even then, where can I find spares for this?

Take it to an older sewing machine mechanic who knows where to find "Replacement Parts" and can repair it. The part you are referring to is a crank slide which can be purchased by a dealer from PD60( a wholesale parts supplier) The part number is 4114948-01 A word of caution. Normally, there is another part which fails frequently on these machines which is the cam stack. It will crack and either make noise on patterns or distort the patterns. That replacement part # is 4111596-01. Get an estimate first to be sure you like the machine this much. Please do not rate this as '"thanks for trying". It needs to be better than that or don't rate it at all . Thank you

The timeing is off on my model 6440

Timing will need to be set by a Service Tech since it involves removing the covers and using a timing set tool. You can find a Viking dealer near you using the link "Locate a Dealer" at the Husqvarna viking website -

6440 husqvarna sewing machine needs repair and replacement parts are difficult to acquire. where to get repair?

Try here

If your needed part isn't available there... The only hope in that case is to find another Husky of the same model and use one or the other as a parts machine. (or part out your Husky and buy something else with the earnings..... just don't buy new plastic ones)

Hi, I have a Husqvarna Viking 6440 and for some reason, it will not stitch. The needle moves as if it's making a stitch, but it just makes holes in my fabric. Can you help me?

First make sure your needle isnt broken ( ive run into this myself then feel so dumb when found out needle was broke) and you thread is thru eye of needle and then check to make sure bobbin is installed correctly, from what your describing sounds like your bobbin isnt being picked up by the needle could be one of those 3 issues
