Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

My Husqvarna Viking 980 continues to sew when I take my foot off the petal. Sometimes the stich get very tight when this occurs. Could this be the foot petal or is my circuit board going out?

I have never seen it be the circuit board, always is the foot control switch. I dont understand the stitch getting tight though. And yes, it could be the circuit board.

Having trouble with tension on my Husqvarna Viking E 20


Be sure to RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread. (Remove the upper thread and rethread from the beginning.) Upper thread malfunctions commonly occur if it is not threaded correctly or the thread is not seated in the tension disk properly.

Install a brand new needle if you haven't already done so.

Viking 980 foot pedal not making contact with machine although machine has power.


It could be lint jammed into the jack the cord plugs into. Make sure the jack and plug are both clean and free of lint. It also could be a damaged cord. If a friend has a working Viking pedal try borrowing theirs to see if it works on your machine. If not, your machine might need service.

Missing a foot pedal


Check with your local Husqvarna Viking dealer. That is what they are there for.
The foot control is a little pricey for that machine, but why would you want to take a risk on cheapening your experience with your machine that you "ADORE" by trying to take the cheap way out in getting a part for it.
Get what you need and continue to "ADORE" your machine.
