I have a Husqvarna Viking quilt 870 sewing

I have a Husqvarna Viking quilt 870 sewing machine. When I sew the ''machine motor overload '' message pops up. It then takes days before I can sew again. The longest period of time I can sew is about thirty minutes. Usually I am sewing cottons.

The overload message is usuall due to a bind in the mechanical function of the machine. When the motor has an extra "load" caused by something like a tight belt or dry bearing, it "overloads" the motor and the error message is displayed. It is doubtful your problem is computer related. Either way a trip to your service tech is required. If you continue to sew with it, you do run the risk of possible damage to some other parts of your machine. The computer portion of your Husqvarna is guaranteed for 5 years and the mechanical parts carry a 20 or 25 year guarantee depending on when you purchased your machine. A copy of your bill of sale from a Husqvarna Viking dealer or a stamped warranty card is the proof of purchase needed to obtain warranty replacement of parts. Labor is only guaranteed for 1 year.

Sounds like a bad motor or transformer. The original warranty on these are usually 20 years if you are the original purchaser. Recommend taking it to a local authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for service or have them send it to Husqvarna Viking (SVP) Technical Service Dept in Tennessee for repair. A list of dealers can be found on the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

good luck.
