Question about Husqvarna Viking 1
Posted by Anonymous on
There is a control to the right side of the bobbincase that might be in the wrong position. after selecting the proper position, manually rotate the handwheel to confirm that the feeddogs come up above the needleplate. if this does not work, take the machine to an authorized Viking dealer for repair.

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.

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.

Sergers are not really meant to sew very thick material. The blades have a maximum amount of range, or thickness that they can reach to cut. If you go outside that range, get ready for a big repair bill! You can break loopers and even the needle plate when you "push" a serger. My advise would be to use you sewing machine for the, "pounding" work. The type of material matters too, A thick Quilt like fabric can be sewn becatuse it's not dense material. A thinner harder denim could max out at 3 layers because of it"s hard finish. If the fabric you're sewing isn't dense like, you could just need new knives.

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.

Your stitch length dial is stuck. Your machine is in need of oil. If you open the back of your machine and see the bit that moves when you turn you stitch length dial. oil that bit and warm it with your hair dryer. It should become loose. It take a bit of warming and working the oil into the machine. You have to repeat this process a few times.
I do have the service manual at email@example.com
