Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

Husqvarna/Viking SLE 6570 only sews "backward"

I inherited my grandmothers sewing machine. The reverse button feels "loose" (there is no resistance to "push in" to make it reverse) and it will ONLY sew backwards. HELP!

    I was hoping not to have to take it anywhere. All the parts move -- it's almost like a spring is missing.

    Guess it's a search for a vintage repair person.

It should not need a part for this repair. The reverse mechanism inside the machine is stuck from old grease which has hardened. It should be seen by a tech, so the part can be cleaned out. He may also find a broken take up slide or a cracked pattern mechanism.
Get an estimate before you have any work done and ask about a warranty for the work they plan to do.It may be less expensive to buy a newer machine

Buttonhole


Set the machine to button hole and use the "C" foot. The machine sews backwards first. When it reaches the correct length push the reverse button. Then when it has sewn the left side even with the right side push reverse again.

Will only Sew in reverse.


Could be several things -- motor hooked up backwards, reverse is stuck, etc. Is there a Reverse on the machine? If so, what happens when you activate the reverse. If it then sews forward I would say someone hooked the motor backwards. If there is no change, it would be a problem with the feeding motor or the circuit board. Suggest taking to a reputable service center for analysis. Good luck.

Machine sewing backwards only


If you machine was recently serviced, the service tech might have reversed the motor connections. If not, it could be the zero feeding mechanism is stuck. Try dropping your feeddogs, i.e. like sewing on a button. Then raise your feeddogs to see if the problem clears. What happens when you sew a buttonhole using the automated buttonhole accessory? If these do not work, it may be your pc board which has a 5 year warranty if you are the original purchaser from an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. If resetting feeddogs does not clear the problem, Will probably need service by an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. If the service tech cannot repair, they can send to Husqvarna Viking Service Technician for repair. Visit the Husqvarna Viking website for a list of dealers closest to you. http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us Good luck.

OUR Husqvqrna 5310 suddenly started sewing backwards


Problem is probably with the feed stepper motor or the reverse cams are locked. What happens when reverse button is activated. If no change it's probably the feed stepper motor. Suggest 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
Good luck.

Viking sewing machine model 6430 will only sew backwards


Th cam stack gears have gummed up on you you can try getting the back cover off along with the side and soaking the machine down with wd-40 and running it while forcing the reverse button in and out if it breaks free try and soak up as much of the wd-40 as you can and then oil anything that moves. I know this may be discouraging but viking no longer supports this machine and you might be better off taking it to an older viking dealer for help.

The cheapest manual I have found for the model 6440 is at http://gotoes.org/sales/VikingSewingMachineManuals/ViewInfo.pl?Viking=1&Sewing_Machine_Model=6440
It is a downloadable version also sent by email.
There is a free threading diagram including bobbin info at www.sewusa.com. Repair manuals are available on ebay and run ten dollars or more.
