Question about Husqvarna Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I own a Husqvarna Viking 6690 that works great but it's missing the B,C,D and E cartridges. I've tried e-bay, craigslist, kijjiji and the listings are either already sold or don't ship to Canada.

SOURCE: missing a foot pedal

Check with your local Husqvarna Viking dealer. That is what they are there for.
The foot control is a little pricey for that machine, but why would you want to take a risk on cheapening your experience with your machine that you "ADORE" by trying to take the cheap way out in getting a part for it.
Get what you need and continue to "ADORE" your machine.

SOURCE: I have a Viking 6690.

when you say "bobbin tension is loose" do you mean that the thread bunches up under the fabric? If yes, then your UPPER tension is wrong and it's probably not threaded correctly.

If you're sure you're using the correct needles, you should take it to a service tech to align it properly.

SOURCE: I cleaned my Husqvarna Viking 6690 and now it

I hate to say it, but the 6690 was plagued with circuit board problems. That machine cost Viking a lot of heartache. I'm a bit surprised to see one still working. You didn't specify exactly what you did when cleaning or whether you took the covers off and disturbed the wiring. Check all the connections and plugs, but it might be dead. You can take it to a Viking dealer with experience with the 6690 for an evaluation.

SOURCE: Viking 6690 will only sew in reverse what to do

The reverse mechanism has a tendency to stick in these machines. Unfortunately, putting oil on it will not make it come loose. You need to find an authorized dealer that knows your machine and they can take care of it for you. Some areas of this machine must be disassembled to be cleaned properly.

I just inherited another Huqvarna (this is a model 630). It was working great until I wound a bobbin on it. After I removed the filled bobbin the machine won't move the needle up and down (but the bobbin...


I do not know the Husqvarna Viking 630. However, I have used the Viking 6690 and it has a similar on-the-side bobbin winding routine. I suspect that you failed to move the bobbin winding mechanism back into the sewing position. Look closely at the area around the bobbin winding spindle. It looks like there is a lever below the spindle. Does this need to be moved or rotated? Double check the steps in the manual and check that you did the opposite steps of preparing to wind the bobbin.

On the 6690, you pull out a knob after removing the bobbin. (You push this piece in and put the bobbin onto the now exposed spindle for winding.)

I hope this helps.

Raise feed dog


I have a different model Viking with a feed dog button to the left of the power button. When it's pressed down, the feed dog stays in the "down" position. Press it again to bring the feed dog up.

I cleaned my Husqvarna Viking 6690 and now it won't zig zag or do any of the "fancy stitches" on any of my cartridges. The size of the straight stitch is also wrong.

My model number 6690 is getting power but will not sew. Any ideas?


The 6690s were plagued with computer failures. Sorry, but most likely it is dead and the repair costs far exceed its value.
