Hi from Australia, we have a husqvarna 2000 with a broken cam. I can see the broken cam it is visible through the opening where you insert the plastic stitch cams. My question is : How do you remove the broken part? Do you remove the large screw in the centre of the cam or does the cam simply slide out once other items have been removed? Thanks Don
There's a guide that holds the cam stack in place. There's a screw just to the left of the cam that needs to be loosened. This is spring loaded, but it should wedge against the stitch length arm and not come out completely. Once this is loose you should be able to pull the cam stack out. You just need to make sure this guide makes it into the groove of the new cam stack when you're inserting it.

What model machine are you using? If it is one of the 2000 series machines (might be labelled 6430 or something else but starting with 6000), from memory you need to align the knobs on the front to the "dot" before you remove or insert a new cam.
look at the cam gear. This is the unit that the cam connects to. It could have a crack or be split completely. If there is a crack the cam stack will have to be replaced. The parts are hard to get and a good technician is needed.
That part is called the "permanent cam" the part number is 4111595-01. Your local Husqvarna Viking dealer should have them. You can locate your closest dealer by visiting their web site, they have a dealer locator. Just put in your zip code and they'll show up.
The information you were given is unlikely to be true, unless the part was no longer available (which would be pretty unlikely if the machine were new as you stated). If you can provide a model number AND an indication of what cam your repairman was referring to, I would be happy to check on that part's availability.
The plastic dries out over time, and this is what may have happened. You could probably remove it by exerting a great deal of force, but will most likely break either the cam itself or the part where the cam is inserted. You could try squirting a little lubricant (maybe Tri Flow?) and leaving it for a while to penetrate before trying again to remove the cam. Otherwise, it would be best to take it in to a repair shop where an expert can work on it and maybe replace any parts that are no longer working properly. Pamsquilt
I too just aquired a husqvarna viking 6030 that was stuck in straight-stitch reverse. No forward, no zig zag, no button hole, no cam stitches. I also suspected a broken spring, since the reverse button was slack and had no resistance. But after inspecting every moving part, I realized it was just stuck from many years of non-use. I finally got it free today! I had used some Tri-Flow oil and applied it sparingly to all moving points (but not belts or motor). I exercised all the buttons and like another poster (either here or elsewhere, not sure) I used my hair dryer to apply heat to the inside of the machine through the cam slot. After you remove the white cover on back of machine that holds the two spool spindles, you will see a formed aluminum part just behind the reverse dial that has a rounded-pointed protrusion which sort of looks like a fat flat head screwdriver. It is supposed to travel in an up-down motion when reverse button is pressed. I used a flat head driver to coax its movement, and once it began moving, I continued with heat and drops of oil. Good luck.
