Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

1 Answer

I can't drop feed dog on my Husqvarna viking 230 sewing machine. I've set the stitch length knob to the "drop feed dog" sign, it clicks, but the feed dog is not lowered. When I start the machine, it sews backwards. Please help me!

It sounds like maybe you have it set up to make button holes.

What do I set my machine for to make very close zig zag stitch. Husqvarna Viking platinum 755.


With most machines after you select the Zig Zag setting you then select the normal stitch knob that can be adjusted for long or short stitch lengths and that should also give you adjustment on your Zig Zag stitch length .

Stitch length stuck husqvarna


Remove the needle plate and make sure there is no lint obstructing the feed dogs. If they are clear, it is usually the feed dog step motor gone bad. You should have your machine serviced by an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. You can find your nearest dealer at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

Is it that the feed dogs won't go up and down, or that you can't adjust the stitch length? If the feed dogs won't go up and down after you have released the feed dog button and cycled the handwheel one revolution, than there is a mechanical adjustment needed. I the stitch length can't be ajdusted, that It's either a circuit board of a step motor problem. The repair shop should be able to tell you that they swaped the feed motor with the zig zag motor to test this issue.

I have a Husqvarna Viking Emerald 183. I can't get it to feed fabric. The footer will move back and forth, but not up and down. So it's making stitches, but will only feed if I manually pull the fabric...


Do you have the feed dogs dropped? Check the feed dog and also the pressure on the presser foot. This knob is located at the left on the top of the machine. The normal setting is 4.

Viking Husqvarna Model 6020 stitch selector will not turn.


look at the cam gear. This is the unit that the cam connects to. It could have a crack or be split completely. If there is a crack the cam stack will have to be replaced. The parts are hard to get and a good technician is needed.

Feed dogs won't stay down


Your machine needs to go in for service.

In the meantime, try this:

Set the stitch length to zero to slow down the motion of the feed dogs.

Securely tape an index card over the feed dogs with a hole punched in the center for the needle.

Painter's Blue Tape works well as it does not leave a residue.

Do a test sample to see if this will work for you until the machine can be repaired.

The feed dog motor needs re-calibrating. If recalibrating does not resolve the problem, the feed dog stepper motor may need to be replaced. These tasks have to be done by a certified Husqvarna Viking service technician. Suggest that 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.

Feed dog switch


Did you turn the handwheel? The feed teeth will not come up until the machine is operated. Run it a few stitches and they will come up.
