Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

1 Answer

My Husqvarna Prism 990 only sews in reverse.

My sewing machine hesitates before it will star sewing, then only goes in reverse. My husband cleaned and oiled everything. We have not been able to find a service manual for the Husqvarna 990. Could the problem be in the foot control or in the computer part of the machine?

You could have an electronic problem on the main printed circuit board or in the feed length stepper motor. You may also just have a bound section in the feed mechanism. I don't think there is a cure all answer for this problem.
A 1/2 second hesitation between depressing the foot control and motor response is very common in these machines
If your husband lubricated the bushings on the upper and lower shafts of your 990 I recommend that you have him remove all of the lubricant possible and keep your fingers crossed. The 990 is a self-lubricating machine and applying machine oil to these bushing will probably cause them to seize. The 990 should never be lubricated in many of the places you would lubricate many machines. Hopefully, you haven't done irreparable damage.

I have a Husqvarna Viking Quilt Designer II that the reverse button does not reverse. It continues to sew forward when I hold and press the reverse button. Thank you for your help.


If, the machine has been sitting, take a hair dryer and heat where the reverse lever is. Try this, it worked on mine. If, that does not work, try cleaning and oiling your machine according to your manual.

Machine only sewes in reverse have cleaned and lubed machine


If this is a 2000, 5000 or 6000 series Husqvarna Viking, you have not cleaned the reverse mechanism fully. It will come loose when completely cleaned and lubed.

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.
