Question about Husqvarna Viking 1
My Viking Husqvarna 6430 (30 years old) has become very noisy. The problem seems to be in the bobbin housing. I think it's probably badly worn. Can I obtain spares anywhere?
Careful now, don't get in too big of a hurry.
The back side of the hook cover, which holds the hook in place in this machine is supposed to have several grooves in it. If there are no cracks, it's probably ok. The hook should also have a considerable amount of movement, or clearance when the cover is in place. Take that away and it won't sew at all.
The most common noise I hear in these machines is a buzzing or moaning sound from the bobbin area. If this could be an apt description of your sound, remove the bobbin case, roll a cotton swab between your fingers until it will fit inside the center post of the bobbin case and clean it out with alcohol. Allow it to dry completely and then put one drop of machine oil inside this post, place it in the machine and run it. The sound should be gone.

I am having the same problem on my 6440. I think I have narrowed down the problem to the plastic part that holds the sewing hook and bobbin case in plate. It is chipped at the top (from being hit with the needle) and I think it does not fit tight against the sewing hook and bobbin case. There are lots of on-line places to buy parts for our old machines (I bought mine in 1976) but I don't know what this part is called. Take a look at it on your machine and see if maybe you show the same chipped issue.
