Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

1 Answer

Hi I have a Viking Husqvarna 6360, and although

Hi I have a Viking Husqvarna 6360, and although it all seems to be working fine smoke soon pours from the motor area once its fired up. I've taken off the motor cover and made a visual inspection: at the back of the motor, just visible, is a small electrical looking gizmo, about 2cm by 1cm by 1cm, with this number on it: PZB4003/13. It looks exploded and is probably the source of the smoke. What is that gizmo, and how do I replace it? Cheers.

Dead right, the part you can see is a suppressor which on most machines you don't need these days, snip it off, id the machine does not work when you have taken it off you can get the part from most sewing machine shops

    Perfect, thanks. I removed the motor, snipped off the offending article - a metallized paper capacitor, or suppressor - and replaced it with an updated version supplied by the wonderful and patient people of Coles Sewing Centre of Nottingham (no connection).

SOURCE: Bobbin Case Assembly

Careful now, don't get in too big of a hurry.
The back side of the hook cover, which holds the hook in place in this machine is supposed to have several grooves in it. If there are no cracks, it's probably ok. The hook should also have a considerable amount of movement, or clearance when the cover is in place. Take that away and it won't sew at all.
The most common noise I hear in these machines is a buzzing or moaning sound from the bobbin area. If this could be an apt description of your sound, remove the bobbin case, roll a cotton swab between your fingers until it will fit inside the center post of the bobbin case and clean it out with alcohol. Allow it to dry completely and then put one drop of machine oil inside this post, place it in the machine and run it. The sound should be gone.

SOURCE: Husqvarna Model 6360 reverse button stuck

This problem comes about due to lack of useage usually. If the machine has been sitting for some time the grease inside hardens. The stitch length regulator, the pattern selector and the buttonhole mechanism could all be contributing to your problem. To fix it properly all three dials should be remove from the machine, disassembled cleaned, assembled and oiled lightly with a teflon lubricant. Since so much is removed from the machine doing this job, every setting in the machine is checked and or reset. It's a major overhaul and costs about $350 and only a handful of Viking Techs in the country can do it.

SOURCE: Designer I software compatibility

You need the Husqvarna Viking software to turn those file extensions into the SHV format. It's about $400 at your dealer. Their web site does a nice job of showing its features. You get over 100 fonts and alot of designs too. You would open your current designs on a screen and then re-write them to the floppy or stick depending on your model of D1. It then sends the stitch information with the picture of the design to the floppy so your D1 can display the image. (The SHV format)
The VIP and HUS format don't carry the image file for your machine so it say's, "file not found", when you try to open them in your D1.

Price removed casing round bobbin and inner case to clean fluff , now I carnt seem to line up properly although all slots back the needle won't go down properly .....husqvarna Viking E10 ..man


Remove bobbin case completely and check that the needle will go down properly. If so, put the bobbin case back in lining up the black arrow on the bobbin case (on left hand side) with the metal arm that comes out slightly on the left side. Sometimes, it is tight getting the case back in place properly. Once in place, check that the case will rock back and forth slightly.
Hope this helps.

How do sew a straight line on a viking 6360?


You may need to service the machine. One thing to check is the feed teeth are at least 1mm above the needle plate on the highest setting. You can remove the needle plate and check if there is lint keeping the teeth from rising. The upper right knob controls the stitch length set it at 3 for normal sewing. 6 would be a longer stitch.

Husqvarna 3610 doesn't pick up lower thread


Hi, Check to see if needle is bent. If the needle is bent it will not work well and soon it will break.
Replace the needle. Also lube the moving parts on your machine. (fine oil) sold in most sewing centers.
