Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

1 Answer

The light turns on, but the machine doesn't.

Seemed like the "ignition" button was starting to fail the last couple of times I used it. Also, the accelerator pedal seemed to stick a little. Now, I only get the light. Have tried unplugging and replugging. Help?

    It's an old model 940 machine. Not a designer One.

It would be a good time to have the machine and the foot pedal checked.

I have a Singer 7285Q sewing machine that comes up with a "E-7" message and the machine won't work. It only happens when I use "back stitch" button. My instruction manual has no mention of an

E7 means
The start/stop button, reverse/reinforcement stitch button
or the thread cutter button was pressed while no thread
cassette was installed. If the start/stop button is pressed before the sewing machine is correctly set up or if an operation is performed
incorrectly, an error message appears in the stitch indicator. Follow the instructions that appear.
If you press (Stitch selection key) or do the operation correctly while the error message is displayed, the
message disappears

I would call a sewing machine repair shop and ask how much it would cost to have the machine serviced and fixed and then you can decide wether or not it would be worth having the machine fixed or looking for a newer machine...

Foot pedal not working

Well, you are definitely getting power from the electric plug in.

Let's do some diagnostic work. Do you hear anything when you press the foot pedal? Any hum? Did you happen to leave it in bobbin winding mode?

your machine doesn't have a "sew" button for use without the pedal. So please rotate the hand wheel toward you as you press the pedal. Did the motor take over and sew?

If you know someone with a meter... have them test the pedal. (they will place probes on/in the part that plugs in which tests for shorts, etc.) If that tests ok... then we know it's something more than the pedal and it will need servicing by a Singer Tech.

Won't start up

No, the 180 doesn't have a battery backup. What are the symptoms ... does the sewing light come on or is the machine completely dead. Where did you store it ... is there a chance that the damp has got to the electronics inside ... if so it is best not to power it up until you have an authorized bernina engineer look at it and possibly clean the main processor board etc.

My New Home sewing machine has been in storage for 2 years. When I press the pressure foot, the motor just hums. Can you help me?

try oiling the machine, since you took the machine apart oil it, use only sewing machine oil, usually you can get it at a fabric store or I think wal mart sells some too.
oil the machine,, let it set for a couple of hours,, put paper towel or old towels under neath the machine because of the oil dripping
then try to turn the handwheel back & forth,, putting slight pressure but not heavy,, DO NOT FORCE IT
if it doesn't break loose oil it again & let it set another couple of hours
then try to turn the handwheel again like before
if that doesn't work then get a can of penetrating oil, & use that,, then wait a couple of minutes & try the hand wheel again & after it breaks loose then be sure to oil it again.
let me know if it helps you

Comunication error


At first turn the machine off, and then press the start button, reverse button and auto lock button at the same time.

-Turn the machine back on while still pushing the three buttons. After the machine has powered on, release the buttons.

-Press the + sign at the bottom of the screen, continue pressing each + sign as it appears. The machine will display a "Test Complete" message, turn off your machine.

-Wait 5 to 10 seconds before powering your machine back on, your machine will run through a diagnostic test and repair any issues it finds.

If this doesn't work;

Have you set up communication is to the "COM Port" designation within Customizer/Digitizer.

Go to >ScanCard >Communication Settings > choose the COM Port you want to use (find out what COM port the cable's using by going to your Start/task Bar in Windows>Control Panel >System >Hardware >Device Manager >Ports (COM & LPT).
There, you should be able to see what port your cable's using.

Hope this helps

I went to use my Bernina 640 after 18 months of storage, and it will not turn on. The screen is blank and the light is not on. The outlet is working, and I triple checked all connections. It just...

Are none of the lights on .... for example, is the sewing light on or the display backlight, even if there's nothing displayed on the screen. If it's completely dead, there may be a problem with the power supply 'L'-print module, but before you go poking-around, please make sure that the machine is dry and has not got damp in storage. Open the bobbin door and check that there's no sign of brown stains around the rotary hook (shuttle). Does the mechanism move OK when you turn the handwheel ? It's important to know whether damp has got into the machine because if-so it's essential to have the machine properly dismantled and dried BEFORE applying power for a long time, since this can destroy the main processor board, which is very expensive to replace.

I started at the edge of fabric but ended off the fabric.Now E-1.

Check the bobbin area to be sure there aren't any thread tangles that may be causing the jam.

Take it back to the dealer and show them what is happening.

It sounds like the timing might need adjusting.
