Question about Husqvarna Lily 540 and 550

1 Answer

Husqvarna Optima Hi! I have an old Husqvarna Optima 180. Has worked fine for 30 years, but suddenly is stuck on buttonhole. Mum thinks there is dust stuck in all the gears, but I cant work out how to get the back off to get in there. There is one screw visible which i have taken out, but it still doesnt seem to want to come off. Do you have any ideas? Thanks!

Needle from getting stick in one place when using buttonhole function?


I suspect that you have your feed dogs lowered and/or you have the setting wrong for buttonhole, several of these machines you have to turn the dial or use the reverse arrow to make it change to all dies.

Buttonhole Husqvarna 6430. When it is supposed to sew the right side of the buttonhole it just goes back over the left side. The machine doesn't do the two buttonhole lines next to each other . An


the machine probably needs to be serviced to see why it's not making
a buttonhole and see if the gear or cam for the zig zag stitch is
worn or damaged.

My Mum has lost the feed dog for her Husqvarna Optima 190, does anyone know where I could get her a replacement as they do not make them anymore.


Feed dogs are still available for that machine. Part number is 412006601. Probably will cost you $20-$25.
I recommend that you find a dealer in your area using this link:http://webservices.us.vsmgroup.com/DealerLocator.aspx?Brand=Viking

They can order them for you from Husqvarna Viking

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. http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us Good luck.

Auto buttonholer problem singer 2662


You do need to adjust your stitch length to get the satin stitch look. Also, some of the auto buttonholers require you to reset the lever after each buttonhole to restart it.
