SOURCE: Viking Husqvarna model 6440 gets stuck in reverse

There are numerous things that can cause this, some very simple, some less so.
1. Fortunatly, the most common one is also the simplest to cure. When you turn the selector (upper left) knob between stitches, one of the things that is happening when you feel the resistance is that it is lifting the followers off the camstack so that it can move to another stitch. When the camstack is normally doing its job, lifting the feed cam follower is what puts the mechanism in reverse. So, while the selector is between stitches, the machine is temporarily in reverse. Also, the dots where the dial is to be placed to change the camstacks is between stitches, so if the dial is on these dots or anywhere else except snapped into a stitch, you will get nothing but reverse.
2. The buttonhole mechanism is stuck in the reverse portion of the buttonhole. Usually if this is the case, the needle position will also be stuck on the left side, and the width control /buttonhole control will not function correctly. Usually you can correct this yourself and I'll explain how in a bit. It is usually caused by lack of use of the buttonhole mechanism.
3. Either the arm that connects the camstack to the stitch length block or the block itself is stuck. Both these parts are spring loadedto bring them in the forward position, so long periods of rest are a contributing factor.
All of these causes except for the first one are because of the mechanism not being exercised frequently enough. These older Vikings do not like to sit still very longYou should fully exercise all the knobs at every sitting.
Ok, try this fix. And this is to free up the mechanisms that are probaby stuck from non use and old oil and grime buildup. Take your seamformer (cam) out of the back. Find a hairdryer and blow some heat in there for awhile. This will soften up any hard oil or grease that may be causing the mechanisms to stick. Then if you can it would be best to have what is called TRI-FLOW oil (the BEST) and spray or drop quite a bit into there covering the mechanisms and let it soak in. You might try a good sewing machine oil soaking or WD-40 in small amounts. Little by little test your knobs, slowly working whatever is stuck lose. Never force the issue. Small amounts of movement little by little will eventually free it up.
Good luck. Hope this helps. If this does not help you may have to take it to a technician and hopefully you won't find out that your take up slide isn't broken which is a major job.

SOURCE: i have a very old viking - feed dog problem

The older 6XXX series are the best machines Viking ever made. But they have one flaw - if the button hole mechanism is not regularly serviced and used, it will eventually stick and the machine will only sew in reverse. This can also happen if you turn the knob backwards when in button hole mode.

I always tell my customers to make a few button holes every time they use the machine. This helps to keep the mechanism free and working between servicing.

Unfortunately the fix is not a DIY consumer project. It requires knowledge and expertise in disassembling the machine and re-aligning the parts. Expect to pay anywhere from $25 to $75 in addition to the regular servicing fee.

SOURCE: Husqvarna Model 6360 reverse button stuck

This problem comes about due to lack of useage usually. If the machine has been sitting for some time the grease inside hardens. The stitch length regulator, the pattern selector and the buttonhole mechanism could all be contributing to your problem. To fix it properly all three dials should be remove from the machine, disassembled cleaned, assembled and oiled lightly with a teflon lubricant. Since so much is removed from the machine doing this job, every setting in the machine is checked and or reset. It's a major overhaul and costs about $350 and only a handful of Viking Techs in the country can do it.

How to fix a Husqvarna sewing machine 2000SL 6460 stuck in reverse


A machine stuck in reverse usually means the step motor controlling the movement of the feed dogs 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

Stuck in reverse too!


There are some 3rd party vendors offering parts -

http://www.pd60.net
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com

I would recommend taking it back to your local authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer and have them send it to Husqvarna Viking (SVP) Technical Service Dept in Tennessee for repair. They may be able to rebuild the part or get one off an old machine being used for parts. A list of AUTHORIZED Husqvarna Viking dealers is available at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

Good luck.

Viking Sewing Machine Model 6360


There is a white button on the front of the machine to the right - it has likely been pressed in to drop the feed. Press it in and release so the button comes out - that should solve the problem.

Stiching prob. Help! Vking husqvarna model 6020


Sounds like the feeding unit is stuck rather than the button. The reverse button engages the feeding unit. Suggest that it be serviced by an authorized Husqvarna Viking Dealer. You can find the nearest dealer by click on the "Dealer" link at http://www.husqvarnaviking.com
Good luck.

Yes you can oil it, but you need a solvent, like terpentine, to clean the inside of old grease and sticky oil. Best done by a authorised technician.

On all sewing machines there is a button or lever which makes the machine go backward. The button could be stuck, if so put a drop of oil on it and try to release it. If there is a lever that has been raised which puts the machine in reverse, simply lower it to the lowest position. This should solve the problem.
