SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Viking sewing machine model 6430 will only sew backwards

bbragg77 is mostly correct. It is not the camstack. Although they will crack, but that is all together another problem. It is the stitch length/reverse mech. You can manually work it back and forth to free it and I like to use break cleaner to get it free then re lubricate. A good service shop can put you back in business. And yes Viking does not support 6000 series machines any longer.

SOURCE: Viking 2000 6430? sewing machine, only sews in reverse.

Your stitch length dial is stuck. Your machine is in need of oil. If you open the back of your machine and see the bit that moves when you turn you stitch length dial. oil that bit and warm it with your hair dryer. It should become loose. It take a bit of warming and working the oil into the machine. You have to repeat this process a few times.

I do have the service manual at sewingnz@gmail.com

Viking 6690 will only sew in reverse what to do


The reverse mechanism has a tendency to stick in these machines. Unfortunately, putting oil on it will not make it come loose. You need to find an authorized dealer that knows your machine and they can take care of it for you. Some areas of this machine must be disassembled to be cleaned properly.

My model 120 Husqvarna Viking sewing machine will not start sewing with vigor. It lugs through the first two minutes of stitching with virtually no power then very gradually picks up speed. How do I fix...


Repair manuals are available only to Husqvarna Viking authorized dealers. However, I have seen some on ebay from time to time. Sounds like your problem could be several things - binding of the internal drive shaft which may have a build up of grease and lint which unbinds as you sew, could be a faulty motor, or faulty transformer. Suggest that it be serviced and cleaned 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.

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!

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.

Husqvarna Viking Sewing Machine 6020 sews in reverse


It doesn't need a part for this repair. The reverse mechanism inside the machine is seized from old grease which has hardened. It should be seen by a technician so the part can be cleaned out. Don't be surprised if he finds a broken take up slide or a cracked pattern mechanism.
Get an estimate before you have any work done and ask about a warranty for the work they plan to do.It may be less expensive to buy a newer machine.

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.

Take to authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for repair. This is not something that can be done by the owner. Check Husqvarna Viking website for dealer closest too you.
