The problem is probably the foot control. The little wires wrapped around the insulator have broken and are shorting against each other or the cord itself has a short. You can purchase an aftermarket foot control at your local shop, this is the cheapest way to try first, if that does not correct the problem replace the cord.

    Disconnect from mains power first. Open up the foot pedal and check that the wires are OK.
    They were in my foot pedal and I solved this problem by squirting some Super Servisol 10, which is a contact cleaner, available from good electronic shops. Wait 5 minutes, and reassemble. Problem was solved

My husqvarna rose is sewing without me! I am doing something and suddenly it starts sewing straight and does not stop till i turn the power off

You probably need to have that checked. Until then, be sure to always unplug the machine when you are finished--don't want to start sewing while you are away from the house.

How do I find a foot pedal for a Viking Vanessa model 5610 with a power cord?

The part is no longer available from Viking. However, you might be able to buy a used one on ebay or from sewing machine parts. However, you might try contacting some of the Viking stores to determine if they have a used one from a machine they use for parts. You can send me a private email and I'll give you some Viking dealers you can contact. email:

Hi please help. I have a Husqvarna Vanessa model 5610 and it is stuck in reverse. How can I resolve this? Kind regards, Chérise

Years ago I had a machine that did that, and I was told to take a hair dryer to the machine after I took off the outer case. Work your stitch length and reverse lever until it frees up. Put your stitch length at its highest first and see it it does anything. I don't know if this will help you or not but it sounds like my machine problem, good luck and I hope it works for you.

My model 120 Husqvarna Viking sewing machine will not start sewing with vigor. It lugs through the first two minutes of stitching with virtually no power then very gradually picks up speed. How do I fix...

Repair manuals are available only to Husqvarna Viking authorized dealers. However, I have seen some on ebay from time to time. Sounds like your problem could be several things - binding of the internal drive shaft which may have a build up of grease and lint which unbinds as you sew, could be a faulty motor, or faulty transformer. Suggest that it be serviced and cleaned by an authorized Husqvarna Viking Dealer. You can find the nearest dealer by click on the "Dealer" link at

Good luck.

Certainly from a VSM Husqvarna dealer, many good sewing repair shops will have a range of bobbins to suit most makes/models Google VSM Husqvarna and find the store locator page for your country or region to locate the nearest one...........or look in the phonebook for service centres.
