Sounds like the feeding mechanism is messed up. If turning it on and off does not resolve the issue, you'll need to have it serviced by a certified Husqvarna Viking service technician. If you are the original owner it may still be under warranty. SE's have a 5 year electronic parts warranty and 20 year mechanical warranty. However, you will need to have it serviced by a Husqvarna Viking dealer. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

Good luck.

Feed dog on viking 6690 are frozen down...how do I fix this


Hello Mary

There may be various reasons for the feed dogs staying down. Let's start with the most obvious ....
The Viking 6690 features a 'Presser Foot Pressure Dial' located on the left side of the sewing machine head. It is probably turned down to the thin end of the wedge or may even be parked on the rectangle ... this will cause the feed dogs to stay down. Turn the dial toward the wider part of the wedge symbol. The feed dogs will come up as the sewing machine makes a stitch.

Please let me know how this works out for you.

Happy stitching.

I need to know how to lower the feed dogs on my Huskystar Viking E10


There is a switch on machine to raise feed dogs up/down. Remove any extension table to locate it because many of these options are located in the back of machine & hidden by table! Jimmy :)

Have Viking 990 and feed dogs not working. Local repair man kept for over a month and then said it was the circuit board and that Viking no longer making circuit board for 990-- or, that machine can't be...


Is it that the feed dogs won't go up and down, or that you can't adjust the stitch length? If the feed dogs won't go up and down after you have released the feed dog button and cycled the handwheel one revolution, than there is a mechanical adjustment needed. I the stitch length can't be ajdusted, that It's either a circuit board of a step motor problem. The repair shop should be able to tell you that they swaped the feed motor with the zig zag motor to test this issue.

Raise feed dog


I have a different model Viking with a feed dog button to the left of the power button. When it's pressed down, the feed dog stays in the "down" position. Press it again to bring the feed dog up.

The feed dog motor needs re-calibrating. If recalibrating does not resolve the problem, the feed dog stepper motor may need to be replaced. These tasks have to be done by a certified Husqvarna Viking service technician. Suggest that you take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

Sounds like the feeding mechanism is having problems. The feed stepper motor is probably getting reset telling the feed dogs to move up and down rather than backward and forward. Suggest you take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service.

Feed dog problem and service cost


I believe that your machine will need a new link spring
SPRING, LINK
itm412514901--> 412514901
This spring is in the freearm area and rides on the feed eccentric. Go to a Husqvarna Viking authorized service center. The technician may not be immediately familiar with this problem but when you tell them where the problem is they will be able to fix it quite easily.
I recommend that they do not remove the feed mechanism. Instead, remove the three large screws on the bottom of the machine that hold the frame on the base plate and the screw that holds the link spring in place can be accessed through a hole in the bottom of the freearm that may be hidden by the ribbon cable that goes to the thread cutter. I have changed the part without removing anything else, just put it in place with a tweezer and reinstall the screw. No adjustments are required to the feed mechanism because none of the mounting screws are loosened.
Definetly have the machine serviced while it is in.
First, ask the associate at the service dealer what the price will be for a service for the machine. Then, ask what the additional cost will be for replacing the link spring. I will charge an additional $35 to the service for labor and the spring is about $5 to $10 is I remember correctly.
Don't attempt the repair on your own.

Machine works but doesnt move forward


Could be that the feed dog is in the down position. The feed dog consists of serrated sections which move together under the fabric and move it under the needle. Run the machine unthreaded and you should see the serrated sections lift above the needle plate, move forward and then drop again. If this doesn't happen the "drop feed dog" knob on the front of the machine could be pushed in. Look for a small knob about 1/2 inch across on the right front of the machine. Push on it and move it sideways at the same time. If it pops out this means that the feed dog is now up and you should be able to sew.
