I am at my sister-in-laws and she couldn't find the manual to her sewing machine (husqvarna viking daisy 335) I just want to know how to change the bobbin, how to thread the machine, how to adjust the stitch length and tension. Can anyone help me out?

    Thank-you so much for your help. Is the tension the knob above the bottom knob? If so, what is the knob that is on the top left under the case?

    I did a "stitch line" and the bottom looks good but the top thread, I can pull it and the whole line of stitches comes out. The stitch length is 2.5, the knob above that is 2.5, the presser foot pressure is 4 and the tension is 5. Do you have anymore suggestions? Thanks in advance, Donya:)) (I also put in a new needle)

Drop in bobbin, only goes in one way (you can't do it wrong. follow white on white arrows to thread it. It's hard to describe over internet (lift presser foot, first go behind the metal guide, then downto left around tension assembly then back up. Around take up lever, then back down to just above the needle, to the thread guide at the top of the needle. Needle goes in flat sode to the back.
stitch length is the bobbtom knob (2.5 is normal s.s. length) The tension should be at 5 or so (between 4-6) I hope this helps

    the knob under the lid is presser foot pressure. The tension is the small knob in the middel of the machine over the needle.

    The knob under the lid is the presser foot pressure, the tension knob is above the needle bar to the right and in the middle of the machine alone. its a smaller numbered dial.

Many Viking machines do not require oiling. Viking does have manuals online for many of thier machines, I don't know which ones specifically.

I need a sewing guide, basic , starting with threading

Hi! You can find manuals for Husqvarna Viking sewing machines at Another place to look for an instruction manual for your machine is I didn't find anything about replacement instruction manuals on Husqvarna Viking's website--BUT they have a neat feature called The Sewing Room that offers how-to-sew instructions. (

You can also take a look at my Hints and Tips about threading your machine.

Let me know if this helps!

Happy Sewing!

OUR Husqvqrna 5310 suddenly started sewing backwards

Problem is probably with the feed stepper motor or the reverse cams are locked. What happens when reverse button is activated. If no change it's probably the feed stepper motor. Suggest you take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page -
Good luck.
