Question about Husqvarna Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I have an old Husqvarna sewing machine model 1020 which dates to around late 1960s. I need to discover which brand of walking presser foot I can use on this model so I can do quilting.

Please help!!! I don't want to ditch this gem of a machine, but am finding it impossible to identify which generic type of walking foot I can use. It's driving me nuts, actually! I'm totally against planned obsolescence and the thought I must buy a new machine just for this purpose really worries me. I don't have the money for one, to put it simply, but I have lots of fabrics I wanted to sew to make some money. HELP!!! From Australia. Maybe they will know in Sweden...HELP!!!

Go line and type it in or go to eBay and type in the piece you need. They come in different shank sizes but are very reasonably priced so you could get a couple until one that fits your machine. You can always gift the ones you don't need. :-)

SOURCE: Needle doesn't move the problem isn't the foot pedal

Same problem with my 400. I took it in to dealer and they said main computer board on my machine would have to be replaced. Fortunately, they agreed to get it fixed for me. My machine is 2 years old. How old is yours? I wonder if this could be a manufacturer defect on the machine? Maybe this needs to be addressed with Viking Husqvarna Corporate.

You have to unscrew the presser foot, then attach the WF, using the same screw.

Make sure the lever on the WF rests on top of the needle bar clamp.

Some WF have a two prong lever and this fits around the needle clamp like a lobster claw.

Husqvarna presser foot icon flashes and will not sew


Be sure the presser foot is installed correctly and that the presser foot is lowered before beginning to sew. If that doesn't help, try a different presser foot. If there are still issues, your machine may need service.

What is a walking foot and what does it look like,please


There is a "fork" or straight bar on the needle-screw side of the foot that wraps around or sets on top of the needle screw. This fork/bar moves with the needle and causes the foot to pull fabric through the top, much like the feed dogs underneath.

Be sure you get a walking foot that will work on your machine!

When installing the foot, it helps to raise the presser foot bar as far up as it will go and that the foot is tilted slightly to slip in on. If you have a knee-lift bar, using it to lift the presser bar will sometimes give you just what you need to get it on. Do NOT bend the walking foot to put it on.

My machine is a Husqvarna Prism 980, and I'd like to know if it's a high shank or low shank.


Take a Measure

With the presser foot in the down position, measure from the Needle plate of the machine to the center of the thumb screw of the ankle of the machine (the part that the presser foot snaps on to).

Low Shank - measures ½"
High Shank - measures 1"

Most consumer machines are low shank. There is probably not a walking foot that is made for this machine but there may be some third party suppliers that have a walking foot that will work. Stitchery Sewing Machine Attachments Needle and Thread

How do I move the presser foot on a Husqvarna Viking Emerald 116 sewing machine?


Not sure what exactly you need to know. Are you trying to lift the presser foot or change the presser foot to another one? If it is lifting, there will be a lever of some kind behind the machine. On one of my Husqvarna machines it was a big flat "paddle" shaped lever, not sure what shape it is on the Emerald machines. Lift the lever from the bottom upwards and outwards. Most Husqvarna machines have clip on-and-off feet. You just gently pull forwards on the foot (while the presser foot is raised) to remove it, then push the new one on making sure the small bar part of the presser foot goes into the clip on the presser foot ankle.

I have an Emerald 183 sewing machine.The bobbin thread is too loose. I can pull the top thread out no problem. I tried rewinding the bobbin thread, changing the needle and I do use the right settings for...


Clean any tangles from the bobbin area.

Always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up so the thread can properly seat into the tension control.

Hand walk a few stitches to see if the thread still feeds too fast from the spool.

When thread pools (falls off the spool) a thread net will help - you can get these at a sewing machine dealer. I use to find them at fabric stores, but have not seen any lately with sewing/serging notions.

You should be able to adjust the pressure on the presser foot. Check your user manual or see an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for assistance. They are usually eager to help. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com
