It is a clutch issue.
If you can turn the handwheel manually and the motor belt is running OK but the needle will not move, you will need to check the clutch mechanism for the bobbin winder.
There are three ways for the clutch to engage, and as I do not know your machine, I offer all three for you to see which applies to yours.
Flick winder to the left to engage needle arm motion.......it may activate automatically when the winder is set to wind a new bobbin and de-activate the needle arm
there may be a small wheel inside the larger handwheel....tighten the inner wheel to engage needle arm...
the handwheel may have a push/pull action ....push in to activate the clutch, pull out for bobbin winding.
If there is any more you need to ask or update your info to refine the question, just post back here, or drop a line through the "Contact Us" page at www.bargainbox.com.au

The clutch has fallen off the shaft. Remove the very small screw in the clutch release screw to remove the clutch release. Place the clutch(round thing with ears on it) back on the shaft with the center ears pointing towards the outside. Put the clutch release screw back on. Tighten it to make sure it works
properly. Put the small screw back in the clutch release screw and test it again. If it will not tighten or release properly, remove the clutch ,rotate it180 degrees and try it again.This should solve your problem.

hi! well! everything is gonna be fine,make sure the thread was wine on clockwise rotation as shown on figures if this similar to your bobbins anyway this is just a sample how to set up bobbinsthe thread is inserted on slot of bobbins case to acquire a tension tread. then hold bobbins on spindle while the needle of machine is on higher position.as shown on figuresthen inset this on shuttle hook case as shown on figures.then after bobbins was set up on shuttle case the thread of bobbins will hook up by the thread of needle by rotating the handwheel manually by your hand be sure the top thread was set up properly.just let me know if the procedure can help.

Certified Viking parts are only available from an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. However, there are some third party parts companies online. You should be able to find these using Google Search. However, I strongly recommend you have the machine serviced through an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. You can find the nearest dealer by click on the "Dealer" link at http://www.husqvarnaviking.com
