Question about Husqvarna Viking 1
My Viking 6440 will straight stitch, but the buttonholer, reverse, stitch adjustment are frozen. The cam will turn and is not cracked at the assembly, but it is stiff & hard to rotate. The local Viking dealer wants $379 to service this. Does anyone know where I can buy a service manual for this machine? I've had it since it was new in 1976, over half my life, and I don't want to part with it, but can't afford that expensive of a service. My husband can fix anything if he has a manual or someone to answer questions (like what type of lubricant to use).
A seller on e-bay who redoes Viking machines says the the grease they put in them (the older vikings) becomes too stiff and the knobs stop turning. He cleans them out and then he adds some kind of teflon lubricant. Probably can find him on e-bay still. He is informative.
