You have somehow posted a hedge trimmer question amongst a sewing machine forum, so I would suggest a re-post in a different forum to maximise responses !

You will need to have it serviced by a Viking Service Tech. You can find a dealer near you by using the link 'Locate a Dealer' at the Husqvarna Viking Website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

Sounds like some type of power surge and now either the control board or motor has gone bad. You will need to have it serviced by a Viking Service Tech. You can find a dealer near you by using the link 'Locate a Dealer' at the Husqvarna Viking Website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

4D d-Card Reader/Writer Kit and Husqvarna Quilt Designer II


Assume you are loading your designs using Organizer? Yes? I have very limited experience of this, preferring to use Disk Manager (but you need to have this program which I am guessing you don't).

It is my understanding that Organizer will only load one design to an embroidery media, not a whole menu of various designs. However you obviously are not "seeing" even one design. Did a pre-loaded Husqvarna card come with your machine? I think it should have, but if it didn't then that doesn't help you very much either.

I am wondering if the D-card is not "formatted" for embroidery recognition. The Designer machines like to receive their designs in a certain file arrangement but I'm afraid I can't offer you advice on how to format the card - I do my formatting through Disk Manager.

However, while I was writing the above it did occur to me - are you loading designs that are the .shv format? Your machine will not recognize .hus, .vip, .vp3 or any other format. Please write back to this group and let me know if any of the above was useful to you. I belong to a Yahoo group that deals exclusively with Designer machines, so I will ask the group members if they can come up with any helpful advice.

Viking 6440, sticks in reverse. Hair dryer on high temp. fixes it until it cools off. How can I clean the old grease out and add new grease, myself? Repair is 425.00 at the shop.


You need to purchase a de-greaser spray to clean out the old grease. Im sorry but Im not an expert at this type of machine, but most of the inner workings are similar to all brands. You need to remove the top to expose the crankshaft device that is inside, and spray with a de-greaser. If you know the area where it sticks try that area first. A common de greaser is actually WD40. It lubricates and de greases, you could try this, if available in your area. You may have to use a lithium based grease for that machine I cannot say for certain. I do however have a link to the Husqvarna help site if that will help.. http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us/2821_3079.htm

The needle in my Viking 6440 is locked in on the left side and the machine will only sew in reverse. The reverse button cannot be moved in or out.


I'm trying to find a machine similar to yours and have done much research re: the older mech viking sewing machines 6000 series. They are GREAT machines, suffering only from problems such as yours caused by the old "lube/grease" they used when it was made @ factory. In their efforts of making a "never needs oil" mech sewing machine, the grease tends to harden & freeze up the gears & cams inside the machine. You need to have it serviced @ authorized Viking shop as you have to completely disassemble the machines & gears, clean, re-lube, & re calibrate the gears... I understand this s/b ~ $175. Money well spent considering if taken care of your beauty could be sewing for another 60 yrs!
Hope this helps!

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.

Machine stopped running, its getting power but wont run.


I would take it back to your service tech or choose another. It may be something simple that needs replacement, like a new cord. (or . . .)

Also, before thinking of buying a new machine, I would get another opinion.
