I just inherited another Huqvarna (this is a model 630). It was working great until I wound a bobbin on it. After I removed the filled bobbin the machine won't move the needle up and down (but the bobbin...


I do not know the Husqvarna Viking 630. However, I have used the Viking 6690 and it has a similar on-the-side bobbin winding routine. I suspect that you failed to move the bobbin winding mechanism back into the sewing position. Look closely at the area around the bobbin winding spindle. It looks like there is a lever below the spindle. Does this need to be moved or rotated? Double check the steps in the manual and check that you did the opposite steps of preparing to wind the bobbin.

On the 6690, you pull out a knob after removing the bobbin. (You push this piece in and put the bobbin onto the now exposed spindle for winding.)

I hope this helps.

After sewing on heavy fabrics my machine has finally stopped working.


It sounds as though you have thrown the timing out or have a broken part. This will likely need a professional tech.

Each machine has different lubrication requirements look to your user manual for lubrication points and how often to lubricate.

Where exactly do I place the oil for singer model 7442


The 7442 is permanently lubricated, and has a self lubricating design, you shouldn't have to oil it yourself at any time.

Are you having another problem that perhaps makes you think it's a lubrication issue?

Oiling a pacesetter


No oiling by the user.

Computerized machines are lubricated and sealed in the factory.

If you are the original owner, you could invalidate your warranty if you go beyond the maintenance routine described in the manual.

To keep the warranty, your machine is to be serviced by an authorized Brother tech on a regular basis - once a year if it gets heavy use.

General maintenance, per the manual, will keep the machine in good working condition.

When was the machine last serviced by a sewing machine tech? It could be old lubricant and dust have gummed up the gears.

Carefully warm the area with a hair dryer to see if this will loosen up the selector.

If the problem continues, the machine will need to go into the shop.

Expect the bench charge to start at about $80 just to do a routine cleaning and lubricating.

Will not reverse


I would also be helpful if you were to indicate make and model............however, let us soldier on.... Unplug machine....Remove the base and while pressing the reverse lever identify where the connecting rod attaches....add a little lubricant at the point of seizing. This may need several applications...possibly over several days in extreme cases. Causes are usually lint and oil forming a "glue" or mild corrosion. Jiggle the stiff joint or collar manually to ease it more free and keep this routine going until it resolves..... If it is still sluggish, rubbing alcohol directed on the joint (sparingly) while jiggling may assist the disolving of any "clag" Sometimes it is never fully resolved and even if it seems to come good, if you do not keep it moving regularly into the future it will continue to be a problem.

Where do I oil the sewing machine?


OILING
FACTORY LUBRICATED PARTS WILL PROVIDE YEARS OF HOUSEHOLD SEWING
WITHOUT ROUTINE OILING. HOWEVER, WHENEVER THE MACHINE tS BEING
SERVICED, CHECK TO SEE IF ANY PARTS NEED TO BE LUBRICATED.
OIL
APPLY GOOD QUALITY SEWING MACHINE OIL TO THE POINTS (A, B, C, D, E)
INDICATED BY BLACK ARROWS.
GREASE
WHITE GREASE IS RECOMMENDED FOR USE ON GEARS AND CAM SURFACES.
IT IS AN IMPROVED GREASE, AND IT CAN BE USED ON THE METAL AND PLASTIC
PARTS WHICH POINTS ARE INDICATED BY THE WHITE ARROWS (F,G, & H).
HOW TO ORDER
PARTS NO.
EM / 40M

SEWING MACHINE OIL
