    I have the same problem. I've been given a Husqvarna 3500 electric without a user manual. Also having trouble threading it. Have tried to get a manual but can't track one down.

I have not dealt with them myself but they have all sorts of Viking manuals in PDF or CD listed. You download (or pay for a mailed CD with the PDF on it) and either view it on screen with Adobe Reader (free at or best bet is to print it - suggested you print double sided duplex) if possible to keep it smaller in thickness. That way you have a hardcopy with the machine.

How to clean a Viking 6430 sewing machine

You can find extensive information here:
You really should get a manual. It will give you all the details about cleaning your machine. You start by opening anything you can (be careful with the screws and plates - I keep a magnet for holding these while I clean) Take a pipe cleaner and/or a small sewing machine brush and get out any lint. This is where you first need your manual. It will tell you how to clean the bobbing case. After all lint is removed, you will need to oil it in certain spots...again, you need the manual for this. Always use sewing machine oil in your machine. It is different than other oils. You can download your manual here: I think they charge $7 for it.

I need a sewing guide, basic , starting with threading

Hi! You can find manuals for Husqvarna Viking sewing machines at Another place to look for an instruction manual for your machine is I didn't find anything about replacement instruction manuals on Husqvarna Viking's website--BUT they have a neat feature called The Sewing Room that offers how-to-sew instructions. (

You can also take a look at my Hints and Tips about threading your machine.

Let me know if this helps!

Happy Sewing!

How Need to know how to thread the machine and how

They have many different models so threading and winding the bobbin can vary due to your model. I would recommend calling them at: 1-800-474-6437 and see if they can get you a photo copy of your original owners manual.

Threading a husqvarna viking 3610

This should be your machine: shows that they have this downloadable in Adobe PDF format here:

#37 in the list as of me posting this. You can get a CD version too but you'll just pay more and wait longer for the same thing. Once you have it print the manual (preferably both sides to keep it small) ang you'll have it. You can also peruse eBay to see if anyone is selling a manual but I doubt that will yield regular results. The machine looks to be pretty basic and standard but it's best you have the manual to get the most out of the machine. Also be sure to check the cleaning and lubrication section and go through the process so that the machine is in top working order before you put it into regular use - saves a lot of headaches.

Someone gave me a machine


I found the Instruction Manual for the 6000 Series machines (6010 and 6020) on available for purchase: $15 including shipping.

Additionally, the site says they will post a FREE Threading Diagram for any machine for which they have the manual. You need only make the request through their email link on that site. They already have posted Threading Diagrams for several Viking machines, however the 6020 is not yet posted. I emailed a request tonight. Hopefully they will get it posted soon.

Let me know if there's anything more I can do to help.
