They require no lubricant and this is a sealed unit that cannot be opened easily

How to change under tension on Husqvarna optima 190 selectronic

The bobbin has a tiny screw on the side that is the tension setting. Turn it a slight 1/8 turn and test (a small turn makes a big adjustment). Be sure to mark the original setting of the screw before making any adjustments so you can back out the adjustments if it's not working.

Would like to get a owners manual for my husqvarna 190 selectronic sewing machine. I am having trouble with upper tension and need to make sure I am threading it properly, any suggestions

Here's an ebay that has one for $ 15.00. There are others.

Generic threading:
1. Go from right to left.
2. As you feed you will come to the tension. Make sure it is fed through the tension disc or it won't work.
3. Feed through the take up lever.
4. Feed through the final holes to the needle. Final little pull to check for snags.
5. Put pressure foot down and give little tug. It should have some resistance, but not excessive. Usually four on the tension control is a good starting point.
6. Check your bobbin for pressure. Pull out the bobbin case and let it hang from your finger with the bobbin inserted. While you bob it back and forth it should extend one inch. Adjust the tension as you need to. Put one drop on the little ring under the case. (It looks like a race track).
7. As you use the machine you may have to adjust the upper tension as you need.

Explanation of what all feet are for

Do you have a manual? If you do not, Google 0ptima 190 selectronic and download one. It will explain what all your feet are for or buy the "FOOT BOOK" from a Viking dealer and it will tell you every foot that has ever been made for a Viking.

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.
