How do I remove soft touch button pad on Husqvarna Platinum Plus sewing machine?

I am working on a Husqvarna Platinum Plus sewing machine and see that the soft touch front button panel has a flat wire lead going right into the back side of the removed panel and has no way of taking this off the the plastic machine cover by screws or otherwise. I need to service the flat wire connection embedded in this area and have to remove the soft touch pad from the plastic front cover on the machine. Does anyone have experience in this? Do I use heat to soften the adhesive and remove soft touch panel the from front machine cover?

Make sure that your machine is set to sew forward. The reverse button on your machine should have a spring loaded return. If the spring is in place, and doesn't appear stretched, try a drop (just a drop) of sewing machine oil. Please use sewing machine oil. Not WD-40, or any other household oil. If the machine hasn't been serviced in a while, or used alot recently, they knob may need to be "reminded" that its supposed to go in and out. :) After applying the oil, push the knob in and pop it back out like you have been. If nothing else is wrong, it should loosen up and move freely.

The plastic dries out over time, and this is what may have happened. You could probably remove it by exerting a great deal of force, but will most likely break either the cam itself or the part where the cam is inserted. You could try squirting a little lubricant (maybe Tri Flow?) and leaving it for a while to penetrate before trying again to remove the cam. Otherwise, it would be best to take it in to a repair shop where an expert can work on it and maybe replace any parts that are no longer working properly.

SOURCE: Thread wound around disc of take-up lever on bernina 1008

Hi, there is no top cover on this machine. First the side cover has to come off then the back cover. Under the back cover there is a rigidity plate with many screws that has to come off and then you might be able to get at the take up lever mechanism. I'm not saying you can't do this but it might just be the time to have a tech go in and service this machine completely.
The thread must have slipped out of the end of the takeup lever and wound in the mechanism. It happens.
If you feel you want to do this yourself feel free to contact me and I can walk you through getting the covers off.
Possibly you can get a tweezers or needlenose pliers in through the front slot, grasp the thread and turn the handwheel bit by bit and see if it will unwind as you pull it out.

SOURCE: How to remove the rear cover on a Bernina 1530

Hi, yes they just come off. I usually slide a small screwdriver behind them and gently pry them out.
There is also the cover on the handwheel that needs to come off by taking maybe a needle and prying that off from the edge. Then you will see a couple more screws. A small one and a big black one. There is also screws under the machine.
Hope I helped.

Need a manual for Husqvarna Platinum 950E sewing machine?

Unfortunately, I don't know of any free sources of the manual. It is available here: . Scroll down to the 64th item in the list. You can also check with a Husqvarna Viking sewing machine dealer in your area.

I hope this helps.

(I know that many dealers can get the manual for you. I was able to get a manual for an older Bernina serger for a minimal fee a few years ago.)

How do i restore designer pape only letter page is showing on screen have husqvarna designer 1 with 4d embroidery extra

I'm not sure I understand the problem exactly. It sounds like you touch pad is not responding properly. Did you notice before this happened that you needed to touch the screen not exactly where the button on the screen comes up. If that is the issue your best bet is to have a husqvarna Viking tech and have the touch screen calibrated.

VIK ROSE 45010050 Stitch size button will go up but not down in size...

Possibly the touch pad is bad. Are they any other buttons that don't work? Usually when the touch pad is bad other buttons won't work either. If only the stitch length won't work then the step motor for the feed is bad or you have a bad board.

My touch pad is off of alignment and the buttons I touch are not be recognized

I had the same problem last summer. I ended up taking it to the dealer for service. Cost me a lot but it sews beautifully now (except with the problem of not liking to sew polyester thread). Get your machine's software upgraded at the same time. There were some fixes I didn't know about that were done for free.

Hi Can u please tell me how to calibrate my Designer 1? Have not done it for a few years and now I've forgotten. Also my touch screen is only partially responding....I'm not getting any response...

Hi Vina, Since you can't get any response to your Menu-Norm-Prog-Rep-Set-or Help on your touch screen but you can get into your stitches, It does sound like you need to re-calibrate your touch screen. Normally you would get into your Set Menu to access your touch screen calibration. But as suggested on another solution. You turn off your Des 1, Holding in the reverse button (bottom left of the eight buttons) and the pivot button (the second one from the bottom of the four buttons) at the same time and turn on your machine. This is the Service menu that pops up (try not to touch anything on this screen, it could really mess things up if you don't know what you are doing) After this screen pops up go over to the eight buttons on the far left of your machine and touch the needle up, needle down button (top right button of the eight) the Calibration Screen will pop up on your touch screen (two plus marks labeled 1 & 2) In your sewing sitting position touch the center of the #1 mark and then the #2 mark. Once you've done that the Service Screen will pop back up. Shut off your Des 1 and restart it normally. Try getting into your different menus- Menu-Norm-Prog Etc. Hopefully that fixed your Calibration issue! ** Note: If the service menu doesn't pop up when trying to hold in these 2 buttons together and turning on your Des 1 the buttons weren't held in properly and you need to turn it off and try it again. Hopefully that helped you out!! Happy Sewing!! Kathy

Husqvarna 955E will not change stitch length. Is

Does the length on the display change or is it as if the buttons are not even working. If the touch pad is malfunctioning you will probably find other buttons not working. Try all of the buttons and see if others do not work. If this is the case, the keypad can be replaced.
