Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

Viking 940 Sewing Machine will not run.

My wife took it to a Viking repairman because it would not run. It did before when she would wiggle the cord where it plugs into the machine.

He said it now blows fuses and it might need a new transformer?

The transformer has broken solder connections between the pins for the plug and the transformer board. Brave? 4 phillips screw. Black box on bottom. remove ribllon cable. Transformer out. 2 screws black cover on transformer off. Theres the board with broken solder joints to the plug pins. The large plug they used on that model broke the solder joint easily. it shoudlnt be blowing fuses though unless he tried to fix it and put in wrong one.

Biking Husqvarna 940 + bobbin case falls out

Go to, look for how to install a vertical bobbin case. You don't have to find a Viking 940 because a vertical bobbin installs the same in most machines. They have good tips and it is free.

I replaced the foot control on my Husqvarna Viking Model number 545 and still have problem with it not seeming to get the message to run.

I just got a great answer to the same question. If you are sure the cord is conducting electricity it may be the contacts in the machine. Check for lint on pins. If they wiggle a little you may have to remove back and tighten the screws that hold the machine wires in place.

The part is no longer available from Viking. However, you might be able to buy a used one on ebay or from sewing machine parts. However, you might try contacting some of the Viking stores to determine if they have a used one from a machine they use for parts.

My viking 990 sewing machine just stop running can you help

Mrs, Clark
It may need a new board or a new transformer. those are the two possible items that usually cause that. It could be a motor but I dont ever see that. It could also be if you wiggle where the cord goes inif it works, there a broken solder connection on the transformer board (repairable witha soldering gun) and fixable.

Feed dog switch

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.
