Timing of viking

Hi. I have been timing other machines for a while. I am very familiar with sewing machine mechanics. I have the print outs on how to time a vertical rotary hook and it shows the timing marks on the paper but the machine I am working on doesn't have the timing marks or the same set screws. I was hoping you could tell me what to look for other than timing marks and those set screws.
Thanks, Karen

Is there any timing marks underneath the end cover?

When the needle eye finishes the downstroke and starts upwards, the eye of the needle should be directly in front of the hook , when the needle is in the furthest left position.

How do i dismantel a viking sewing machine 6000 model 6440?


You can remove the rear cover by taking out two screws on the back cover and a screw at the lower rear corner on the side. With this cover removed you can see most of the internal levers and mechanism and be able to access some (not all) components.

Huskylock viking serger machine is very noisy / squealling; oiled / cleaned machine, changed needles... It gets quieter if I sew fast.


some machine make more noise than others, but to be on the safe side I suggest having the machine check to see if there is something else wrong, it could be something is loose or worn in the machine.

I'm not familiar with that program. This particular forum is for sewing machines by Viking Husqvarna. Sorry, I can only answer what I am familiar with. You should take this to the computing forum.

HI, I have inherited a LENA, limited edition sewing machine made by Husqvarna. It sounds a bit louder than I'm used to machines sounding...suggestions/comments/


Probably needs a good cleaning and oiling. I'm not familiar with this machine, but it sounds like an older machine, right? In general, older, all metal, mecanical sewing machines are just wonderful to sew with.

Good luck and let me know if a good cleaning solves the problem.

I have a Husqvarna Viking quilt 870 sewing


The overload message is usuall due to a bind in the mechanical function of the machine. When the motor has an extra "load" caused by something like a tight belt or dry bearing, it "overloads" the motor and the error message is displayed. It is doubtful your problem is computer related. Either way a trip to your service tech is required. If you continue to sew with it, you do run the risk of possible damage to some other parts of your machine. The computer portion of your Husqvarna is guaranteed for 5 years and the mechanical parts carry a 20 or 25 year guarantee depending on when you purchased your machine. A copy of your bill of sale from a Husqvarna Viking dealer or a stamped warranty card is the proof of purchase needed to obtain warranty replacement of parts. Labor is only guaranteed for 1 year.

Husqvarna Viking Sewing Machine 6020 sews in reverse


It doesn't need a part for this repair. The reverse mechanism inside the machine is seized from old grease which has hardened. It should be seen by a technician so the part can be cleaned out. Don't be surprised if he finds 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.

Viking 190 sewing machine stuck on backstitch


Found the problem (s) with Viking stuck on backstitch!!!

Two problems:

A: machine is "gummed-up" form old grease.
Solution: degrease machine with a high quality degreaser.. I used a spray electrical degreaser from an automotive store. Turn the machine up-side-down to preform this!
Then relubricate machine. Use a high quality sweing machine lubricant! Also lubricate the inner parts with a qigh quality "Sewing machine" oil.

B: Found that the return spring from foreward to backward was tired.
Soultion: Replace with slightly stronger spring from local hardware store.

If you need pictures, I took very detailed pictures of the reverse mechanism and "return to forward" spring.

Husqvarna sewing machine


Sorry I'm not familiar with that model but if it is a Husqvarna Viking machine, you can probably get one from an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. They should be able to order one if they don't have it in stock. You can find the nearest dealer by click on the "Dealer" link at http://www.husqvarnaviking.com
Good luck.
