Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

1 Answer

Emerald 183 will only sew forwards and backwards on straight stitches. Can't select any stitches from the control panel. Does this mean the motherboard is faulty?

Possibly, but loose cables or a bad touch panel are other among other causes

SOURCE: sewing backwards

The reverse button works by hitting it twice in succession to make it stay on (it lights up), and you turn it off my hitting it once again. If you just want to reverse for a little bit, you hold it down while you sew, then let go. Is the button lit all the time?
Having said that, it sounds like Nannayoyo needs to take her machine to a service centre - the electronics behind the button panel might need replacing. Is it possible the button is stuck in? Maybe phone a Husqvarna service person - not a sales person - and ask for advice.
Everyone - are your machines new? If yes, you need to go back to the sales centre straight away and get it fixed or replaced while you wait. If these are problems that have just appeared when your machine used to work perfectly, probably the best solution is to take it for a service. It might just be a speck of dust has settled on the electronics behind the panel and is causing unpredictable behaviour.

SOURCE: Viking sewing machine model 6430 will only sew backwards

Th cam stack gears have gummed up on you you can try getting the back cover off along with the side and soaking the machine down with wd-40 and running it while forcing the reverse button in and out if it breaks free try and soak up as much of the wd-40 as you can and then oil anything that moves. I know this may be discouraging but viking no longer supports this machine and you might be better off taking it to an older viking dealer for help.

SOURCE: the bobbin thread is bird nesting on my viking

Make sure the bobbin is extended out of the bobbin case via the tension spring mechanism in the bobbin case. This provides tension for the bobbin unit. Check to make sure the upper thread has not "jumped out" of the take-up lever so that when the needle first touches the fabric the thread is still taunt and when the needle enters the fabric a small loop is formed right above the fabric and the eye of the needle. If these tips do not help suggest that you take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

SOURCE: the bobbin is bird nesting on my viking emerald

Check that it is threaded correctly (both top and bottom) making sure that the upper thread is in the takeup lever and the bobbin is guided through the tension spring in the bobbin case. Watch the needle as you slowly turn the handwheel counter clockwise (toward you) and the needle point touches the fabric (make sure presser foot is down). Is the thread still relatively taunt? If it is loose, the upper thread tension unit does not have enough tension. Check the areas where the thread goes and make sure you remove any loose threads or fluff which could be inhibiting the tension discs from closing over the thread. If the tension unit still is not tightening enough, the tension unit may need to be replaced or the circuit board replaced. If everything is ok in the upper thread area, now look at the bobbin area. With no fabric, watch as the needle enters the bobbin area. Does it go down and the upper thread catch the bobbin thread and pulls it to the surface? Check for anything preventing the bobbin thread from being pulled up to the surface through the needle plate. If you have still not been able to resolve the problem suggest you take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service.

Good luck.

Singer Simple 3116 only sews backward.Looking for answer I saw earlier that involved several steps including buttonholer


You are stuck in buttonhole. The selector knob does not spin round and around. It is moved from Stitch 1 to stitch 14 and back. Try selecting buttonhole and then running the knob in the other direction to straight stitch. If that does not work, (1) drop the lever that senses the button hole attachment, (2) sew a few stitches backward, (3) push the button hole lever rearward, once, hard, (4) rotate the stitch selector to straight stitch.

No digital display on the screen and will not sew...was sewing along very nicely, changed thread and now have this problem?


It may be something you can fix if you can find a dealer who will tell you what the code means and how to re-set it. The backward and forward C are not a normal code. Does your book have a section for error codes under "trouble shooting?"

How do I choose stitch 2:07 for darning on the Emerald 183 Husqvarna Viking machine


Press the Menu button below the + for stitch length adjustment to rotate through the stitch menus. When you see 2 LEDs, you should be on the correct menu. Then press button 7 in the stitch selection area. Confirm this by checking the stitch selection on the display. (Make sure that you have the C foot in place.)

I hope this helps.

Janome 2030 QDC How to predict whether the buttonhole (24) will start forward or backward? I power off the machine and reselect stitch 24 and move the buttonhole presser foot to the start position every...


does it sew buttonholes both ways?

My Janome 6500 always buttonholes away from me, so when it starts, it sews the near bartack, then stitches backwards down the right hand side of the buttonhole. It then comes back with little straight stiches on other side and sews the zigzag backwards on the left side, then the far bar tack. I would have thought your Janome would do the same stitch sequence.

I am trying to alter a swim suit, and I need to use a stretch stitch. Does the Singer model 2638 have this feature?


Here is the stitch selection page from your manual

tally_girl_49.jpg
I would suggest that you use the stitch called "elastic overlock" using a stretch needle, you need a ball point tip on the needle to press between the elastane fibres in lycra. A stretch needle is blue, coated with a substance that makes it easier to stitch these types of man made stretch fibres, often size 75. If you can't get one of those, then use a ball point needle, size 70 or 80.

You need a stitch with forwards and backwards movement so that the stitching doesn't break under stress. Your machine also has a stretch straight stitch and this would be a forwards and backwards straight stitch so this will work too but can look a bit 'heavy' sometimes. But even triple zig zag narrowed down will work often.

If you are sewing leg edges with lycra, shop made garments will have clear swimsuit elastic sewn into the seam using a coverstitch overlocker, you'll never get as good a result with a regular sewing machine but you can get a reasonable finish with practice. This elastic is available to buy, you might want to use the overlock stitch to attach it to the fabric edge, stretching as you go, then turn it to the inside and use a stretch twin needle and straight stitch to top stitch from the outside, stretching the fabric as you sew.

Trust this helps you a little, 4 thumbs up if so. :-)

Sewing machine only sews backwards


Make sure that the machine is in straight stitch forward and the stitch length is the highest level that it can go. If that doesn't make it go forward, you will have to use the old hair dryer trick. Take the top lid of the machine off and heat the inside with a heated hairdryer. Work the stitch length and the reverse until it frees up.
