Question about Husqvarna Sewing Machines
The machine does sew without a hitch. It just won't sew any specialty stitches. Someone said the inside part that the cams are inserted into is cracked. They also claimed that affected the zig zag problem. Any suggestions.
Yes your fixed cam could be cracked and that will have those symptons. Here is a video.

Basically it is a matter of a stuck part. Flip open the top by prying up on the front or ends of the lid. You already noticed the hinges on the back. When you get it open, exercise the right hand lever on top (marked ZZ at bottom and 1-20 at top. If you look just to the right of this lever against the back wall you will see that it moves a little part back and forth into triangle shaped grooves. The part is not going completely into the grooves so drop some oil in there and exercise it a few more times, using your fingers if necessary to make the part move into the triangle grooves at the front and back. After a while it will loosen up where it should operate by itself smoothly . Hope this helps.

Try these solutions.
* Re-thread your needle
It may be threaded incorrectly (backwards).
* Reinsert your needle
Make sure it goes all the way into the holder and that it’s positioned correctly – usually with the
flat side away from the bobbin, but consult your machine’s manual to be sure.
*Change your needle
Your needle may be blunt, bent, or otherwise damaged.
*Your fabric may require a different needle. Generally, heavier fabrics require larger needles and
thinner fabrics, smaller needles. You may also need a larger needle if
you’re sewing through many layers of fabric. And make sure to use a ballpoint needle for knit fabrics and a sharp needle for wovens (or a universal needle for either).
And make sure your needle is appropriate for the type of thread you’re using.
* Adjust the pressure of your pressure foot
It may be too light for your fabric.
* Change your thread
If your upper thread and bobbin threads are different types, try using the same thread for
both. And use a good quality, brand name thread.
* Adjust your thread tension
It may be too tight or too loose.
* Re-thread your machine
It may be threaded incorrectly.
* Change your needle plate
Try switching to a needle plate with a smaller hole (a straight stitch needle plate).
Important: If you change your needle plate, check to make sure your needle aligns perfectly with
this smaller hole before starting to sew. A misaligned needle could hit the plate and break, which
could be dangerous. And make sure to change your needle plate back for zigzag and other wide
I hope this helps you.
