    Thank you VERY much. I cannot get the handwheel to move at all.....BUT I am going to go through it again and maybe take it a part ( fingers Crossed). The biggest problem are the Viking dealers. They keep saying NO an buy a new one. I am a real Viking gal. I have 7 other machines, in the same room and have NEVER had a rust problem. This also is my most expensive an newest machine. I will work on it next week. Thanks again...I am going to attack this problem! Lynn

Hi there,

yes, that can still be fixed. First buff all the affected parts with any fine buffing compoud then wife the residues with dry cloths. After this, every surface on a machine, which is in movable contact with any other point, must be lubricated. A small drop of oil on each point is sufficient. Take off the machine covers and rotate the handwheel in the normal direction of rotation. Observe and note every movable contact point on the machine. This includes the visualizing of shafts within bushings, etc. Perform this exercise thoroughly while lubricating the machine, and you will soon find it quick to lubricate every point without fail.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards.

What is the difference between Husqvarna 1003 lcd and 936. TY. Hug

The difference is that the 1003 is an older machine. The 936 is a newer machine and I have one. I bought mine new in 2003 so it's already a few years old and the 1003 is much older than that. The 936 has already been replaced and as I understand from the Viking store not made in Sweden any more. The real differences are the LCD screens, the location of the dials, the looks of the machines and of course the AGE of the machines and the price. It's always easier to get parts for a newer machine and the 936 should come with a DVD. They both do the same overlock stitches. The coverstitch is the main reason you would buy one of these machines. If you AREN'T going to do the cover stitch (the twin needle look) don't buy one of these because you will pay more money and have more mechanisms to work with. (If you don't need the coverstitch, look for a Huskylock 910. It's just like the 936 but without the coverstitch. You still get the beautiful display, the free arm and the lower looper threader.) If you look on eBay under huskylock 1003 and 936 there are two machines you can see. The 1003 is bid up to 305 dollars and has 20 hours more for bidding. The 936 has a buy it now price of 750 dollars or best offer. You could offer them 350 and see if they take it or go up to 500. I paid 1000 new in 2003. Both say 7 day money back guarantee. If you go to a Viking store and see the new one (I forgot what number replaced the 936) the cover stitch is easier to set up on this one. Good luck picking a new serger. You'll love it! Feel free to ask if you have any other questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

Huskylock 936 error code

This will also occur if the "needles" and "loopers" lock up as though threads are tangled and binding the machine. If needles and loopers move freely when manually turning the handwheel counter clockwise, you probably need to 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 -

Good luck.

Parts for serger machine.

Hello, you need to find your nearest Husqvarna Viking dealer for that part. It's call the motor pulley. The reference number on the machine parts break down is #215008-844 you should also change the little washer at the end of the pulley, #215008-845. Inspect the belt, if the teeth are "rough" in any way, you may want to pick up a belt too.#215008-843
