Question about Husqvarna Viking 1
Just got this used machine and am trying to familiarize myself with it. The stitch selector knob (upper left) was broken at some time so they super glued it...unfortunately they didn't glue it then put it back on but glued it in place basically locking the stitch selector up. An hour's worth of acetone loosened it enough to change the stitch if I use a pair of pliers. Yikes!
But on to the question. It appears that the needle is hitting the bobbin case and kicking it out. My guess is a bent needle but the instruction manual doesn't indicate if the snaps into place or if it is supposed to just sit there.
Maybe the needle isn't installed properly?
I'm a novice sewer and any assistance will be greatly appreciated!
Check with allbrands.com - they have LOTS of resources and if you can't find it - you can call and they have lots of great ideas.
Also - ebay has a seller who owns and LOVES sewing machines. He is located in California - so he has a wealth of population base to help you search.
His SELLER NAME on ebay is craigthecat - just do a search and you will find him.
EBAY also has many "for parts" machines - I sure "stick and brick" sellers also have lots of old machines they just sell out the parts.
Glad it was just the thread - happy sewing
