Try setting the machine in direct sunlight with the back cover off and let it get nice and warm. It might even need a little assistance from a hair drier. Warm the area directly behind the reverse button. If you can get it to move a little, you will see which parts are moving. Use Tri-Flow on these parts and they may come loose without having to take it in for service. DO NOT USE WD-40 or 3-IN-1 oil. Go to a bicycle shop and get a small bottle of Tri-Flow liquid.If that won't work, any authorized Husqvarna Viking repair center should be able to take care of it for you. Don't force anything too hard. If you break anything, you may not be able to find parts as they are no longer available from the manufacturer.
If you keep scrolling through the Set menu you can find out how many hours the machine has done since the Hours was re-set. This feature is used in case you need to time a project - perhaps you are doing a paid job and need to calculate how long you spent on it. Most people just let it accumulate and don't bother to zero it out ever, so it is likely that the hours shown there are the total hours the machine has done. But not guaranteed to be the total - someone selling a machine second-hand might zero it out hoping to convince a potential buyer that the machine has done very little sewing.
There is a screen where you can see the true total hours a machine has done but this is best accessed by a qualified technician. You can cause all kinds or problems for you and your machine if you access these areas and don't know what you are doing. Go to a dealer and get them to check it.
Assuming you now have the manual. Your local authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer can order a user manual from Husqvarna Viking. A list of authorized dealers is available at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us
