SOURCE: Hand Wheel

There is a smaller wheel in the center of the big wheel. This has to be tightened in order for the needle to operate. This smaller wheel is needing to be in the loosened state to wind the bobbin. The needle should not go up & down then. Just hold the outside wheel & tighten the inner wheel. This should solve your problem. Hey, just wondering if I could possibly get a copy of your manual, as I lost mine for this model. I would really appreciate it! My email is dianahus@paulbunyan.net Thanks & Good Luck

SOURCE: Hand wheel spins without moving the needle

I used to have an old Bernina that had an inner and outer hand wheel. Loosening the inner wheel disconnected the needle bar from the motor so you could wind the bobbin without running the needle up and down. It sounds to me like your machine has the same feature, but resistance on the needle makes the inner wheel loosen up. I don't know whether wrenching on it as tight as you can would be enough, or whether this is a symptom indicating that there is something loose internally in the connection between the inner and outer wheels. Good luck!

SOURCE: can't tighten clutch on Kenmore zig zag sewing machine.

The clutch has fallen off the shaft. Remove the very small screw in the clutch release screw to remove the clutch release. Place the clutch(round thing with ears on it) back on the shaft with the center ears pointing towards the outside. Put the clutch release screw back on. Tighten it to make sure it works
properly. Put the small screw back in the clutch release screw and test it again. If it will not tighten or release properly, remove the clutch ,rotate it180 degrees and try it again.This should solve your problem.

SOURCE: needle wont go up and down.

well,it seem that your upper camshaft was stuck due to several factor on mechanical linkages and maybe on gears.You have to isolate the checking since you have clean lower bobbins free from dirt and thread/fabrics chips.If there an opening on top of machine open it to check some mechanical destorsion or breakage.Check some broken gears inside.If nothing try to open also at the bottom of machine cover and there are also belt and gears connected to the motors and bobbins shuttle holder if so oil all shafting oil port,oil port bushing specially on bushing near hand wheel there is port for oil,
check also motor assembly of machine,you can disconnect belt from motor release the bolt holding motor adjust to lower tension belt and release the belt.Take some tools such as monkey pliers or small pipe wrench that can hold hand wheel just crack in order to move suddenly after oiling for several hours sometime bushing and shafting rushes emerged or if you have anti rush spray put in on.After cracking and you can move a little crack only by your hand several time lleft and right until all linkages free from rush.If you can move all parts and hand wheel rotate freely.Check also motor by rotating the small pulley conncted to motor if free to move.if ok put back and reassembly all parts disconnected.try to move again by hand if free to move after all asssembly.Run machine using foot pedal.

936 Huskylock needle bar does not move up and down.


First, make sure the machine is engaged to sew. some machines,
have a knob inside the flywheel on the left side that disconnect the sewing mechanism to wind a bobbin without the needle bar moving.

Husky lock 936 cover stitch troubleshooting


try a new needle

try rethreading that one needle

rethread the looper

if that doesn't help, then the machine may have a timing problem and would have to be checked

How do you sew with three needles on huskylock 936. I can't seem to find a third spot for a needle.


A 936 has 5 needle positions. C & D are in the back position and AB&E are in the front position. Check your user manual for diagram. you can view, print, or download the manual from the viking website - http://www.manuals.husqvarnaviking.com

Viking 936 Machine is not cutting fabric, but continues to sew. What can cause this?


More than likely the cutter/knives need replacing or are not coming up all the way to catch the fabric. Put a piece of fabric on the plate just before the cutters and turn the hand wheel slowly. Are the cutters coming up above the fabric and moving to below the fabric to complete the cut? If not, open the front cover/door and turn the hand wheel watching the cutters' movements. You should see the gears that travel up and down. Many times this area becomes packed with lint/fabric and binds the movement. I usually take a large needle and dig out the lint/fabric or whatever else is stuck in that area. You'll be surprised how much you will remove from that area.

My Huskylock 936 - needle won't go down. The motor seems to be binding up.


Check your threading, both top and bottom, sounds like you have threaded wrong.

Huskylock 936 is making an irritating chatter noise. Stitches are fine but moving by hand the wheel seems stiff. Got from dealer used and long drive away like this and not sure if it is normal. Something...


Sounds like maybe its to do with the loopers hitting in the bottom,go to the manual and make sure that you have not moved the coverstitch lever..also, do you have the right bottom plate on for the stich your trying to do?

Needles hit the arm when stitching


Make sure you have completed all the steps to convert to cover stitch. There is a "clutch" to move from S to C for coverstitch that is located on the inside front of the machine where you thread the lower loopers. Make sure you have "locked down" the looper as instructed. There is a VHS and a DVD available from the Husqvarna Viking dealer. 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 - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

Good luck.

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 - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

Good luck.

Viking Huskylock 910 Upper Looper problem...


You will find that it was most likely the top looper has moved to the left too far, undo the looper clamp and press the looper to the right by about 3mm. Then turn the machine over to see if it still hits anything, when the top looper comes up past the bottom looper there should be about 0.5mm clearance between the two. Try this first please.
Also the arm shaft may have moved. Trace the shaft back to where there is a clamp type crank with usually a hexagon head clamp screw. Loosen this and set the top looper so as the eye of it is just past the needle when it is all the way up and to the left.
You are correct in not using the machine under power, turn by hand when you think it is correct and make sure there is nothing hitting.

My huskylock 936 is binding up.


I've never seen one that couldn't be fixed. It is just a matter of finding the right technician to work on it. Binding in this machine is often in the upper shaft, either the bushings or in the linkage to the needle bar. If this is where your problem is you probably shouldn't try to do it yourself.
