I PURCHASED A USED HUSQVARNA VIKING ROSE MACHINE AND WHEN I TURNED IT ON TO SEW AND IT IS SEWING IN REVERSE. I HAVE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS BUT CAN'T SEEM TO GET IT OUT OF REVERSE. ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
If you have located the reverse button and pressed it once - this should shut off that feature. If this does not, then I am afraid you are going to have to take it in to be reprogramed. Any local shop that is familiar with Husky should be able to help you out. Good Luck!

You will need to have it serviced by a Viking Service Tech. You can find a dealer near you by using the link 'Locate a Dealer' at the Husqvarna Viking Website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us If the local dealer cannot repair, they can send it to the Viking Service Center in Nashville, TN for repair.
That's a tricky fix. I recently fixed one (I'm a Service Tech). The spring is wedged into the front cover in the housing. The sewing head has to be removed to access the area. Suggest you take it to an Authorized Viking Dealer to have the work done. You can find the nearest Viking Dealer by going to Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us and clicking on Locate a Dealer
Sounds like a sensor needs to cleaned or reset. This will have to be done by a certified Husqvarna Viking service technician.

If you bought your SE from a dealer they will be able to transfer those designs for you. If not, you need the Husqvarna Viking software so you can "read" the designs from your rose cards into your computer, then you will be able to send them to your USB stick for the SE.
The software really unlocks the potential for that machine. The first module of the software is about $400, comes with about 100 fonts and many designs and abilities to alter the text you want to sew. If you go up to the $900 option, you can cut designs apart and save different aspects of the design by themselves and also get an automatic digitizing option that works well. Husqvarna's web site shows their software in detail.
The overload message is usuall due to a bind in the mechanical function of the machine. When the motor has an extra "load" caused by something like a tight belt or dry bearing, it "overloads" the motor and the error message is displayed. It is doubtful your problem is computer related. Either way a trip to your service tech is required. If you continue to sew with it, you do run the risk of possible damage to some other parts of your machine. The computer portion of your Husqvarna is guaranteed for 5 years and the mechanical parts carry a 20 or 25 year guarantee depending on when you purchased your machine. A copy of your bill of sale from a Husqvarna Viking dealer or a stamped warranty card is the proof of purchase needed to obtain warranty replacement of parts. Labor is only guaranteed for 1 year.
Put on the C foot. Select the buttonhole stitch. The machine will start sewing in the bottom left corner of the the buttonhole. Sew the length that you need, press and release the reverse button and sew the right side of the buttonhole. When you get back to the bottom, press and release the reverse button again and the buttonhole will be finished and the thread will tie off and the machine will stop. If the buttonhole is what you want, press and release the Stop button and the machine will repeat this buttonhole as many times as you need until the machine is turned off or the Stop is pressed again. When repeating, you need not press the reverse. Just press down on the foot control and continue until the machine stops by itself. If you don't like the first one, just sew another one using the reverse button to set the ends.
