Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

1 Answer


Can anyone give me the instructions for setting the timing on this machine.
(Husqvarna Scandnavia 400). I have the back off and I have loosened the two allen screws on the shaft, but I cannot move the loop without the shaft turning. Maybe I have loosened the wrong screws. I just need help!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can make a picture of the back and send it if necessary.

Tighten the screws you have loosened and try simply cleaning the the machine with a small, dry, clean paint brush. Put one drop of oil on all moving parts you can see and through any oiling holes on the top of the machine. If the machine is computer operated you will need to unplug the power from the machine for a few minutes to give time for the computer to reset itself.

It starts to sew, gets to clip thread and then this E on the display starts flashing and beeping and won't sew, I have a Scandnavia with programable 512 card for my 4D . Checked another card in machine and...

"E" stands for error. Something could be wrong with the design, or perhaps it is not suitable for the machine (too big, etc) Let me know the design you are trying to stitch, and perhaps I can help you figure out the error.

I have acquired a Husqvarna sewing machine that is labeled "Limited Edition" on the front. I do not have a manual for the machine. Is it possible to download a manual for the machine? Thanks.

For a $5 download for the 400 go to OR

If you contact they can send you a photocopied manual for 21.99 if you need a paper copy.

Let me know how you make out. Good luck and if I can be any more help let me know!
