Question about Husqvarna Sewing Machines

How do I program my Viking 980 sewing machine? I can't find my manual & I think this machine can be programmed to stitch a word/phrase at one time, but I can't figure it out.

First touch the "P" button, the #1 will appear in the left digital window. Choose the first letter you want to sew and then push the reverse button, ( the button furthest to the left with the upside down arrow on it) that puts your first letter into memory. Then select your next letter and push the reverse button again. Repeat the process until your word is programmed into the machine.You can start sewing immediately by pressing on the foot control. Pressing the finishing button (Bullseye) before you start to sew, will make the machine tie off each letter so you can cut the joining stitches. Husqvarna may be able to make you a copy of the manual. They can be reached at: 1-800-474-6437 Good Luck

Testimonial: "Thank you. Worked as stated. Husqvarna did not offer that option at their web site. I did find a down loadable copy for $5 @ gotoes.org."

SOURCE: Husqvarna Prisma 980 decorative stitch cassettes don't work

Hi,
On that machine, the cassettes aren't actually computer chips. Each cassette has a little spot of white on a certain little area you must find (top right I'm pretty sure). Look in the machine at that point. There is a sensor that looks for that white spot, and as it identifies it, it changes stitches according to that cassette. Either the sensor is blocked, gone bad, or you can put a fresh coat of white paint on with white out. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Viking sewing machine model 6430 will only sew backwards

bbragg77 is mostly correct. It is not the camstack. Although they will crack, but that is all together another problem. It is the stitch length/reverse mech. You can manually work it back and forth to free it and I like to use break cleaner to get it free then re lubricate. A good service shop can put you back in business. And yes Viking does not support 6000 series machines any longer.

How can I program a full name into my 1+Husquvarna Sewing machine?


I have the #1 and it should be similar in programming if not the same.

Instructions for the #1 (1200) -- Programming Block Letters
(one model down from the #1+ Husqvarna)
From the machine instruction page for letters and numbers

Ready:
  • .Fabric Woven-medium, stitch & tear
  • .Enter: Woven-medium on your sewing advisor
  • .Consult Info display: Presser Foot B

Program:
Insert Cassette B
  • .Touch SELECT function to PROG
  • .Advance to an empty memory
  • (->) means arrow: .Touch H-> U-> S-> Q-> V-> A-> R-> N-> A (STOP) -> REP

Sew:
  • .Place Stitch & Tear against the wrong side of your fabric.
  • .Stitch the word HUSQVARNA. Easy!
  • .Now, program your name and today's date. Stitch on your sample.

Smaller sizes of letters
You can program a number of letter sizes by - the width before entering the letter. You may want to enter the first letter of a name at 6.0 width and the other letters narrower.

Correcting Errors
You may clear any single stitch but the first one on a program. When the cursor is under the first stitch and you touch CLR, the entire program is erased.

NOTE: The cursor designates the first letter to be sewn.

I have a viking 980. The decorative stitching does not work. I have no manual. Can any one tell me how to use these stitches. I think I may have just forgotten what to do.....:( Thanks! ChampionChicka


If the decorative stitches you are talking about are on the card that you insert into the machine, the problem can be that the sensor is not seeing the white squares on the bottom of the card itself. Take white paint or a white out liquid paper and "paint" the white squares at the bottom of the card but only the white squares. That will help the sensors "see" which card you have inserted. If that doesn't do it, your sensors are bad and they are not available. Make sure the paint is dry before you put the card back into the machine.

My Husqvarna Viking 980 continues to sew when I take my foot off the petal. Sometimes the stich get very tight when this occurs. Could this be the foot petal or is my circuit board going out?


I have never seen it be the circuit board, always is the foot control switch. I dont understand the stitch getting tight though. And yes, it could be the circuit board.

#1 Viking Embroidery #13 Set.


Use any card that has the On/Off in the bottom right og the card (1). You have to know what number is you design so you can push that number after selecting on/off. Make sure you programmed emb card is in the machine. You can use another card if you do not have the generic numbered card with on/off and the hoop positioning E on the right side of the numbers 1 to 35 designs.
