Yes you can oil it, but you need a solvent, like terpentine, to clean the inside of old grease and sticky oil. Best done by a authorised technician.

Viking 6460, cam knob on front seems to be frozen. How do I operate this knob? P.S. just bought this machine seems to work well except stitch (cam) selector knob


Most likely has seized due to lack of use and lube over time. If you can access the internal mechanism of the knob, applying 1-2 drops fresh good quality oil to the knob mechanism may help. Heat from a handheld hair dryer may loosen it. If unable to access the knob internally, setting in a very warm area, ie in the sun during summertime may work.

Will a 6440 foot pedal and cord work on a 6460 Viking sewing machine


According to this site (although the parts are no longer available), it looks like the same foot control will work on both machines:

How to fix a Husqvarna sewing machine 2000SL 6460 stuck in reverse


A machine stuck in reverse usually means the step motor controlling the movement of the feed dogs has gone bad. You will need to have it serviced by a Viking Service Tech. You can find a dealer near you by using the link 'Locate a Dealer' at the Husqvarna Viking Website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

The feed dog just moves the fabric back and forth but will not advance it in the forward direction. Any sugestions about it? It is a Viking model 6460.


Take it to a knowledgeable repair center and have it service. I can't think of anything that would break to cause this. I'd imagine something is frozen and not moving freely.When you take it in to have it checked, the person looking at it should immediately try the stitch selector operation, the reverse button operation and look under the removable cam, in the back, to check for cracks in the fixed cam. If they don't look at these items, check with someone else about working on the machine.

Reverse sewing button stuck HELP!!


MOdel 6430 has the stitch length and buttonhole selector on the same knob. It is the one on the bottom right side of the machine. I believe you may have selected the buttonhole by pulling out on the large round knob. You need to turn the knob back to 0 zero and push in. This should return the machine to normal mode.Adjust your stitch length to 3 and try it. The reverse knob in the center should also stick out so that it becomes operational again.

Reverse only?


Hi,

I too just aquired a husqvarna viking 6030 that was stuck in straight-stitch reverse. No forward, no zig zag, no button hole, no cam stitches. I also suspected a broken spring, since the reverse button was slack and had no resistance. But after inspecting every moving part, I realized it was just stuck from many years of non-use. I finally got it free today! I had used some Tri-Flow oil and applied it sparingly to all moving points (but not belts or motor). I exercised all the buttons and like another poster (either here or elsewhere, not sure) I used my hair dryer to apply heat to the inside of the machine through the cam slot. After you remove the white cover on back of machine that holds the two spool spindles, you will see a formed aluminum part just behind the reverse dial that has a rounded-pointed protrusion which sort of looks like a fat flat head screwdriver. It is supposed to travel in an up-down motion when reverse button is pressed. I used a flat head driver to coax its movement, and once it began moving, I continued with heat and drops of oil. Good luck.
