Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

Husqvarna Viking #1 blown fuse

I need to know where I can find the computer boards for a Viking #1. Husqvarna will only supply the needed part to an authorized Husqvarna repair place, not another repair shop not theirs. I have dealt with their dealers, incompetent, want to use a Bernia repair place as their technician is really good. IThe machine keeps blowing the fuse, like amp. but not specifically for that machine. Suspect the board has a short in in but still want to find somewhere to buy the board, and not have to take it to the local Husqvarna repair. They don't know what to do and will just tell me to buy a new machine. Knowing this, it will not be a Viking even thought I like the machine.

    My Platinum 770 will only sew a straight stitch. Nothing happens when I choose another stitch pattern. Also the stitch pattern information on the screen shows incorrectly. Do you think that the computer/circuit board has gone out?

    Touch screen on our Designer 1 does not respond. It lights up and displays the stitch screen but does not respond to touches. Any thoughts?

You will most likely find that ALL of the "better" manufacturers; Bernina, Husqvarna, Pfaff, will not sell proprietary parts to non-brand dealers. Ultimately, this protects the customer.
With that being said, chances are the problem you are having is NOT a bad circuit board, but a bad power supply. But, since you don't trust your local dealers, find a dealer that is not so local. A two hour car ride is going be a lot cheaper that replacing the wrong part, and NO dealer will return your money on a part that the customer diagnosed as being faulty. I assure you, a Viking dealer somewhere will help you with your problem. You might want to try a Pfaff dealer. They can sometimes obtain Viking parts.
I would try replacing the power supply first. Its a cheaper priced part, and more likely your problem. Its also easier for DIY'ers, but extreme caution must be taken to ground yourself to the machine. Static is always a concern with electronic sewing machines, and even more so this time of year. Proper grounding equipment should be worn while performing any internal repair or adjustment in any electronic machine.
As far as replacing the circuit board yourself, if necessary, also be very careful when disconnecting and reconnecting wires. The connectors are very small and bend easily. Also, care should be taken when tightening screws. Overtightening can cause faults within the circuit board by cracking the solder paths or just plain break the board.

My Husqvarna Rose is dead. My husband tried to replace the bulb and it was the wrong one and it wont turn on at all. IS this too a fuse. Where is the fuse on these machines


You can check inside the power supply unit for a fuse, but I think he probably blew a voltage regulator and the power supply will need to be replaced. Contact an authorized Husqvarna Viking repair center.

Dead battery


There is no battery in a Viking #1. If you have no power it could be your transformer. There is a fuse on the transformer, so it may be serviceable. You need to remove the circuit board in the transformer to see the fuse so a trip to your service tech is needed
