Question about Husqvarna Viking 1
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.
