Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

1 Answer

I have a Husqvarna Viking 2000 SL and it seems there is a short in the cord. The machine has power because the light turns on, but the foot pedal does not work. Any suggestions?

The first thing to check is the pedal itself. If you have a continuity tester you can check to see if a connection is being made in the pedal when it's being stepped on.

You can also turn the handwheel back and forth while you step on the pedal with the power to the machine on. If the motor starts to run a little bit, you know the pedal is good and the motor carbons will be bad.

That machine's rear cover over the motor comes off somewhat easily, so you could also check the connections in the electric terminal where the foot control plugs in. Make sure to have it unplugged when you do this part. Gently move the wires near where they connect to the terminal block and see if any are loose. There are screws there that tighten onto the wires that sometimes loosen which would make your pedal not work.

How do I find a foot pedal for a Viking Vanessa model 5610 with a power cord?


The part is no longer available from Viking. However, you might be able to buy a used one on ebay or from sewing machine parts. However, you might try contacting some of the Viking stores to determine if they have a used one from a machine they use for parts. You can send me a private email and I'll give you some Viking dealers you can contact. email: deborahcha@aol.com

Viking 980 foot pedal not making contact with machine although machine has power.


It could be lint jammed into the jack the cord plugs into. Make sure the jack and plug are both clean and free of lint. It also could be a damaged cord. If a friend has a working Viking pedal try borrowing theirs to see if it works on your machine. If not, your machine might need service.

Just bought a Husqvarna 5710, and found out that it did not have a power cord, or foot pedal. Do I need to buy replacement products specific to the model, or are there universal models that would work?...


You will need to buy power cord and foot pedal specific to your model. You can have an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer order these for you. A listing of authorized dealers is available on the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

Also you could try ebay but be careful that you know what you are buying. Other 3rd party vendors are:

My Viking 5710 starts to sew without any pressure on foot pedal


Mine does the exact same thing. I think the problem might lie in the cord to the foot pedal. The cord packs into the foot pedal for storage, which forces the cord to to remain bent during storage. I believe the wires in mind became damaged and broken so I took it apart and reconnected the wires at the spot where the connector meets with the wires. But I still don't leave it plugged in if I'm not using it, it could be a fire hazard.
