Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

1 Answer

Stuck in reverse too!

However, when I took mine in, they said the little reverse button is broken and would need to be replaced. However, since the maching is now over 25 years old, they can't get the parts. I was wondering if anyone knew if anyone still has parts for these machines. I've called quite a few VIking dealers/repairs and they all are telling me the same thing. Help!
Thanks
CC

There are some 3rd party vendors offering parts -

http://www.pd60.net
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com

I would recommend taking it back to your local authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer and have them send it to Husqvarna Viking (SVP) Technical Service Dept in Tennessee for repair. They may be able to rebuild the part or get one off an old machine being used for parts. A list of AUTHORIZED Husqvarna Viking dealers is available at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

Good luck.

Viking/Husqvarna 5710 sewing machine is stuck in reverse. Reverse button isn't stuck, but doesn't pop out by itself anymore. Stitch dial isn't in between stitches. Put wd40 in the insides, didn't help


Uh-oh. Don't use WD-40 on your machine... WD-40 becomes sticky with time and will seize the mechanics...

Wondering if there is a spring under the R button that perhaps is broken or collapsed.

Model #385.1764180 the reverse no longer works. Is there a quick fix?


Mine was doing same thing. Open up from side and see if a little oil will help. Also, keep pushing down the Reverse button and make sure your needle Iis up, push down the V Reverse and see if it works again. A lot of grease inside these macbines have gotten thick. Keep trying to use it, guarantee it will start back. Mine works all the time now.

Need simple instructions for making button holes with a Bernina Activa 130 sewing machine


This question appeared for an Activa 131 elsewhere on Fixya, so I am simply copying and pasting the previous answer in hopes it will also solve your issue:

There are TWO buttons on the machine that have the little u-turn on them. Look for the other one. That is the one that makes the second half of the buttonhole. Look in the owner's manual, it may tell you where it is on your machine. I spent a long time swearing at my machine before I figured out that the reverse is not the only button with the u-turn arrow. The manual is not clear on this. Why they use the same symbol twice is beyond me. Mine is on the front of the machine, down by the needle. Hope this helps.

The reverse button does not work


The button is a relay switch and is an electronic component

Quite easy to replace, but you need to get parts from Janome Authorised Dealer

Operates only in reverse-How to fix


Isn't there a button that you would push to make machine go in reverse? You may have used this button and it got stuck in the reverse position or the button may be broken or disconnected. Pull the button outwards, put some penetrating oil on button to loosen up and see what happens or check for broken piece or check for bad contact. I hope this will fix your problem. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Why doesn't my elna model 300375 work in reverse?


the reverse button or lever could be broken or stuck, it would be a good idea to have the machine checked to see why the reverse isn't working.

F2 error on brother sewing machine..what does it mean? wont do anything but beep


On mine this means the button for reverse is stuck. Just wiggle the button a bit and it will pop out again. It can get pushed in at a slight angle and catch a bit, but nothing is broken... I don't know if this is the only thing F2 means, but it is one thing!

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.

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.
