Question about Husqvarna Viking 1
Model 6430 Viking has the reverse button located in the center of the stitch length dial. It is firmly jammed in the reverse position causing the machine to sew ONLY in reverse.
When I pull firmly on the button it will sew forward but goes back to reverse when I let go...It seems to be attached to a spring, inside. Possibly the top knob has not been installed correctly????
MOdel 6430 has the stitch length and buttonhole selector on the same knob. It is the one on the bottom right side of the machine. I believe you may have selected the buttonhole by pulling out on the large round knob. You need to turn the knob back to 0 zero and push in. This should return the machine to normal mode.Adjust your stitch length to 3 and try it. The reverse knob in the center should also stick out so that it becomes operational again.
