If the capacitor is still legible, it is a simple task to unsolder the old capacitor, read the label and source and solder in a new capacitor. Capacitors do blow once in a while...

An electronics repair shop should not charge more than $10 or $15 to replace it if you are not up to the task of soldering...

Husqvarna viking sewing machine bobbin

Could the part number be 4011770? I've found the Viking 7 bobbins here: . Another site with them is . This bobbin is compatible with the Husqvarna Viking 7, 49, 51, 52, 21 & 21E . It probably will work for other machines. Sears also has them listed as 11770: .

I also found these bobbins: . The part number appears to be 1702.

I hope this helps.

How do I get the outside case off the husqvarna sewing machine freesia 425 to get to the inside mechanisms?

I don't know about a Freesia specifically, but I saw my tech. literally rip off the front of my Designer 1 once - took me years to get over the trauma!! I think with most of these modern plastic machines, the various parts of the cover are clipped on. You just need to be brave, take a hold, and go for it. I would be sure to remove any "loose" bits and take a good hard look at which bit fits where first. Try jiggling the part you want to remove to see if there is more "give" in one direction than another. Also be prepared in case you accidentally break the lugs that hold the piece in place.
