Problem is probably with the feed stepper motor or the reverse cams are locked. What happens when reverse button is activated. If no change it's probably the feed stepper motor. Suggest 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

Sounds like your feed dogs are in the down position. Make sure they are in position "A" (see picture)
Also, make sure your length dial is set to a medium setting (Usually 1.5 - 3)

SOURCE: I have a singer 3343c
the presser foot only holds the fabric against the feed dogs in the needle plate area
check the feed dogs to see if there in the up position
if not there should be a nob in the feed dog area to move them up & down
on some models when you remove the extension table the nob is at the back

SOURCE: Brand new machine. Heavy Duty
Remove plate and place one drop of Zoom Sewing Machine Oil at the bottom left-hand side of race shuttle (you have to remove the plastic section - just unsrcrew with the flat silver thingy in your 4423 accessories. Don't get oil on plastic parts. Remove screws underneath of machine. Tip machine on it's side against a towel. Run machine slowly. Any moving part gets just one drop of oil and gears that look dry get Singer lubricant (Comes in a tube). Make sure you tighten screws, but don't tighten with too much force so you don't "strip" plastic. When sewing heavy fabrics, use Singer Style needles #2032/ 90/14 and 100/16. On TV they demonstrate heavy fabrics and knits with this "heavy duty" machine, I know, but you can bet, you need specific needles for specific jobs no matter if you have a home machine or even a metal industrial. Much success!

I don't think it's a major timing issue, so don't panic. Take a look at your selected stitch pattern selector and set for straight stitch, and set Tension at 3-4. Width: 4. Length: 4. Make sure presser foot Down when you rethread machine so the tesion disks open up to locate thread. Always hold thread taut when "feeling" for tension slot. Insert new needle. Needle goes all the way up into needle clamp as far as it can possibly go, FLAT side needle toward needle bar and more rounded side needle facing you. Leave 6" tail. Hold thread toward you as you turn hand wheel toward you so needle can make a loop with bobbin thread. Make sure bobbin thread isn't hanging down on or across bobbin! Make sure thread in bobbin has wound evenly - good quality thread ideal! Clean bobbin area and feed dogs for broken, loose threads and lint. Always use needles appropriate size for weight of fabric. I suggest walking away from machine, taking deep, cleansing breadth, humming a favorite tune, then doing above and see how it goes! Soon your machine will be humming happily along with you. Hope these suggestions help. Jimmy
