Looking for a HusqvayViking Selectronic 118 sewing machine manual

Hello, Martha -

I hope I am correct in understanding you wish to find an owner's manual for a Husqvana Viking Selectronic 118 sewing machine.

This Husqvara Viking web page lists many of their sewing machine model manuals, with links to each manual by clicking on the blue right pointing arrow to the left of each model name and number:

However, I do not find any model named Selectronic in that list. The only model I found listed in that list with the number 118 is the Emerald 118.

Note: The manuals are all in PDF format, so you will need Adobe Reader software (free.)

If you can't turn the handwheel on the side at all you need to be very careful. If the two loopers are crossed and you force the machine you will be looking at a rather expensive repair bill. Open the front cover and do a visual inspection, making sure nothing foreign is inside the machine. If the handwheel turns easily and the only problem is electric, check the front cover. If it is not closed all the way the power to the motor is cut off for safety reasons. Hope this helps.

it sounds like a needle threading problem. if you have the instruction book, pull yout needle thread off the machine and re-thread as per the book ie presser foot up and make sure thread goes betwen tension discs and up over takeup lever.

to check needle tension is ok, lower presser foot and pull needle thread through needle, the needle thread should be tight enough to bend the needle a little.

Husky 55 chainsaw

All chainsaws are air cooled. The problem is the cylinder head often sits underneath the gas tank. People fill their tanks with a mixture of gasoline and oil and often spill it or overfill the tank causing that oily mixture to coat the cylinder often. Then all the saw dust and dirt sticks to the oil and pretty soon the cooling fins on the cylinder head and all the parts surrounding it are coated with an oily dirty grime that keeps air from circulating around the cylinder head letting it cool normally. I'm not that familiar with a Husky but you need to be careful about other parts in the area, but you need to clean off the cylinder head so that it can get some cooling and quit heating up the gas in your tank. Usually there is a vent in the gas cap also and if it's plugged it will cause the gas tank to pressure up and force more gas than is necessary into the carburetor. Either clean the vent or buy a new gas cap.

Husqvarna 51 chainsaw will barely run, magnito and carberator ok

Probably need to re-adjust the carburetor jets. They are very small screws in the base of the carburetor. They will be labeled with an "H" and an "L" . Set the low speed first by turning it in slowly until the rpm drops slightly then start turning it outward untill the engine idles smoothly. At that point you can also adjust idle speed. Then you need to be careful here but you need to hold the throttle wide open at the same time adjusting the high speed jet. Turn it in until the rpm drops then slowly turn it out. The rpm will keep increasing. Once you get to a point where it is max'ed out then screw the jet back in one half a turn. Changes in altitude like using your chainsaw in town versus going to the mountains for firewood can sometimes make it necessary to adjust the fuel/air ratio.

My Husqvarna 142 chain saw, new out of the box, starts and runs well enough but left to idle it continually stalls. Any ideas?

The carb needs to be adjusted. Look for 2 adjustments label High(H) and Low(L). Low is the one that you want. Start you chainsaw and let it warm up and turn the L adjustment a until you are able to let it idle on its own. Hope this helps.
