Question about Husqvarna Viking 1
It could still be either problem. Lowering the needle is kind of like curing a cough by not breathing. You still don't know if you have bronchitis or emphysema, but you will stop coughing.
Is the needle centered in the plate side to side?
Does your zigzag have equal clearance on either side in the plate?
Check timing by lowering needle bar to lowest position and then raise it 2.5mm, push the hook back into the driver and the tip of the hook should center on the needle. (raising the bar 2.5mm is easily done with a setting gauge available to authorized technicians)
If timing is correct, set the needle bar height by loosening the screw in the cross head and adjust the bar up or down so that the hook crosses above the eye of the needle while in the far right needle position.
Adjusting the bar height will be the equivalent of lowering the needle but check the timing first. If it is off, the machine will sew but the stitch quality will be poor.
You really should try to find an authorized repair technician in your area. If you change the wrong thing you may make the problem worse and it will just cost that much more when you have someone fix it for you. Also, the tolerances are very close on these adjustments. You may thing that raising the needle about 2.5mm is close enough on the timing check. For that measurement, there is no tolerance. If you go to 2.4 or 2.6 your stitch quality will suffer.
