You should have it checked by a certified Husqvarna repair facility. It may have a problem with the stitch length motor.
I think that model will turn off the reverse lock if you shut it off and back on so that isn't it.
Have someone check the feed length motor to see if it calibrates when the machine is operated.

My machine will not pick up the bobbin thread when sewing. I have a Viking Husqvarna. The stitch setting will not hold and the stitches are about 1/4" apart. You can pull them out with no problem.

I read on line that the needle may be in backwards. Not sure that was true, but I did take it out and re-insert. The machine sews just fine.

Thank you,

Machine sewing backwards only

If you machine was recently serviced, the service tech might have reversed the motor connections. If not, it could be the zero feeding mechanism is stuck. Try dropping your feeddogs, i.e. like sewing on a button. Then raise your feeddogs to see if the problem clears. What happens when you sew a buttonhole using the automated buttonhole accessory? If these do not work, it may be your pc board which has a 5 year warranty if you are the original purchaser from an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. If resetting feeddogs does not clear the problem, Will probably need service by an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. If the service tech cannot repair, they can send to Husqvarna Viking Service Technician for repair. Visit the Husqvarna Viking website for a list of dealers closest to you. Good luck.

OUR Husqvqrna 5310 suddenly started sewing backwards

Problem is probably with the feed stepper motor or the reverse cams are locked. What happens when reverse button is activated. If no change it's probably the feed stepper motor. Suggest 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 -
Good luck.

Husqvarna viking Platinum 775 fabric won't advance

Most of the time the bobbin case gets hung under the feed dogs, take your needle plate off and the bobbin cover there is a gray colored finger with a number 10 torx screw holding it in you can also try a small flat head screw driver, remove that finger and then remove your bobbin clean the hook out and replace the bobbin making sure it seats itself on the hook with the small notch on the bobbin case lining up with a small metall spring on the back right side of the hook area.
