Question about Husqvarna Huskylock Computerized 910

1 Answer

Huskylock 901 I have a standard huskylock 901. The handwheel keeps getting stuck. I tried oiling but it only helps for awhile (1 hour maybe). I can hardly turn the wheel by hand. Any suggestions on what I can try before I have it sent in for repairs?

Re: huskylock 901

Your problem may be twofold. One, the motorbelt may be too tight. Remove the sidecover and loosen the two screws on the motor. Adjust the belt tension in such a way that if you oress with your thump halfway between the motor pulley and the handwheel, the belt should give way app. 15mm.

Check if this help. If not, you need to wash your machine with white spirits to get rid of old oil and grease. Best done by a technician.

How can I fix a stuck needle bar on my Bernina 730?

If this is a Bernina 730 Record, it needs to be cleaned and oiled. Do not attempt to run the motor if the mechanics are stuck as it could damage the motor.

Consult your owner's manual in the Maintenance section, use only good quality sewing machine oil (NOT old stale oil, 3-in-1, WD-40, or cooking oil) and apply 1-2 drops every place that metal rubs on metal (while you hand rotate the wheel). Pay particular attention to your problem areas--the needlebar area and the handwheel area (Do NOT oil the cams, the belts, or the plastic gears!!) To speed it up, you can direct hot air from a handheld hairdryer into the internal mechanics. (You may have to repeat several times over several days depending how "stuck" things are.)

If you are impatient, try to find a bottle of Tri-Flow Synthetic Oil at the hardware store and use it in place of the sewing machine oil. CAUTION: even if Tri-Flow loosens things, you should still follow up with sewing machine oil afterwards because the Tri-Flow evaporates quickly.

In the future, following the instructions in your manual, clean and oil every time you change a bobbin, every 8 hours of constant sewing, or every 6 months if not in regular use.

Why is hand wheel stuck?

If it is a mechanical sewing machine (pre-1990), it most likely needs cleaning and oiling. (Old oil has turned to goo and is sticking things.) Consult your manual. Use good quality sewing machine oil (NOT 3-in-1, WD-40, cooking oil, or your grandmother's sewing machine oil). Apply only 1-2 drops each spot as instructed. Concentrate on the area around the handwheel since that's where your problem is, but the entire machine should be oiled. You can direct hot air from a handheld hairdryer into the interior mechanics to help loosen things. Let cool and test. Wiggle the handwheel and see if things have changed. Repeat oil/heat until your machine is working again. In the future, be sure to clean and oil every 8-10 hours of constant sewing or at least every six months if not in use.

Or take it for service to a good sewing machine repair service.

How can I fix a jammed, squeaky hand wheel?

This sounds like a bushing in your serger or the upper looper shaft heats up with use. This the swells the metal and seizes the machine. This is always hard to fix right because there are many points on the serger that need regular lube and can heat up. it is an eliminate 1 joint at a time and try agein

Why is my handwheel hard to turn and making a squeaky noise?

Sounds like possible thread in the gears, or the wrong oil might have been used to oil the machine. Sewing machine oil (clear oil) should be used for oiling the machine. I use an oil called Tri-Flow Lubricant which is available at your local bicycle repair shop.

I need information on how to oil my huskylock 905

Oil any and all moving parts with sewing machine oil. If you turn the handwheel, look to see which parts are moving and oil them.

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.

If your machine is hard to turn you need to look for threads which are bunched up around moving parts or it needs oil badly. This, combined with skipping stitches, indicates a need for a technician to adjust the timing and generally service the machine.
