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.

I have misplaced my instruction booklet for my Husqvarna Viking Platinum 755 Royal Edition sewing machine in a recent move. Can anyone help me?

I was unable to locate a free copy anywhere, but I did find an edition for a 750 edition for $10.00. I believe this does cover the 750 Series, which would include your machine. You should email the company selling the book first, though, to be certain.

This was the only site I found with any manual that was close. You might try giving a quick search on eBay. Oftentimes when someone's machine dies, they will sell the manual and any accessories they had on there. You might end up finding something.

Good luck!

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 a Husqvarna Rose 605 that has just begun to give me problems when embroidering. After embroidering on a project for a few minutes, the surface of the fabric stretches just enough, that on...

It sounds like the needle just isn't in your machine all the way. Loosen the screw that holds the needle and push it up and see if it moves upward. Your machine has sensors that let the embroidery unit know where the needle bar is so the hoop won't move while the needle is down. There is a clamp that holds the needle bar tightly in the machine, if you can rotate the bar, the clamp has loosened. If the needle bar is loose at all, don't sew with your machine as you could cause real damage.
