Question about Husqvarna Sewing Machines

1 Answer

My Viking 500 suddenly stopped running. The machine comes on and will sew and then won't start. Stitches are fine. The computer shows something wrong with the foot. The symbol for the buttonho

I have tried reinserting the pressure foot cord and it might run but when I stop it won't start again. Could it be a short in the cord or a problem with the comput?

The foot pedal has nothing to do with this. You machine is telling you that you have the wrong presser foot on the machine for what you are trying to do.


Do you have your manual? Mine tells me what foot goes with which stitch.

SOURCE: start/stop button problem will the machine run on its own

You have to unplug the power cord to the the foot pedal. The manual doesn't include this. And good stinkin luck with Sears or Kenmore customer service! Just pull the cord out of the machine and the start/stop button will work. Try it on a slower setting at first though. Also, if you need additional presser feet, Singer, Brother, Janome, and possibly other brands will usually work as long as they are the snap on type. I really do like my machine, good luck with yours!

SOURCE: My Viking 5710 starts to sew without any pressure on foot pedal

Mine does the exact same thing. I think the problem might lie in the cord to the foot pedal. The cord packs into the foot pedal for storage, which forces the cord to to remain bent during storage. I believe the wires in mind became damaged and broken so I took it apart and reconnected the wires at the spot where the connector meets with the wires. But I still don't leave it plugged in if I'm not using it, it could be a fire hazard.

I just worked with my Shark sewing machine and it was fine suddenly it stopped zig zag and start working simple stitches! Can you let me know why it happened? There was no noise or sound of breaking.


There is a spring that got loose from the needle arm that keeps pressure on the arm. It needs to be reattached. Anyway, make sure all of the normal adjustments are set properly. Just one adjustment wrong will cause the machine to only run in a straight stitch. Possibly a button hole or something else. Remove the top of the machine and look down where the needle arm is. The needle arm bracket has got to pull the arm towards the arm using the pressure of an attached spring. This spring is hanging inside the machine from a permanent side bracket. If it isn't there then it has dropped to the bottom of the machine. Anyway, the needle arm must have the sideward pull in order for the machine to produce a zigzag stitch.

My husqvarna 500 computer won't start. It ran for a while after I got it tuned up and then stopped running again. The lights come on but the needle doesn't move. Turned it off and on again as...


Did you leave the foot control with the machine when it was service? I normally will not keep the foot control when I check a machine in for service as long as the owner feels it works okay. The cord must be firmly seated in the back of the foot control. Some people have had a loose cord for 10 years and never realized that it just isn't fully inserted. Also, make sure that it fits fully into the machine. Sometimes they feel like they go in but a second try lets them drop in fully and work normally.Beyond that, you should probably have the person who tuned it up for you have another look at it. Is it still within it's warranty period from the tune up. Most dealers won't mind taking a look and advising you on what is going on.

Won't operate. Won't go forward or in reverse, happened all of the sudden. Hand crank fine, but the whirring sound comes from that area.


it's possible that something in the machine has come loose or broken
it would have to be serviced at a sewing machine shop

Skipped stitches. Also, won't transition


have you checked the needle to make sure it's in correctly--flat side of needle goes to the back of the machine

correct needle insertion is mandatory for the proper use in your sewing machine. Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the needle clamp screw to remove the old needle.
place the new needle in the needle clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back (or if using a round needle the groove in the needle should be facing away from the shaft.
push the needle all the way up to the stop, or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw.

how to decide which needle is correct to sew with, it depends on the fabric & thread being used for the project.
like for example, I've been sewing for over 30 years, I'm sewing a stretchy fabric & regular needles won't work because they skip stitches & will pull the fabric thus damaging the fabric, the needle I have to use is a singer universal ball point needles, & I have no problem with the stitches they come out fine.

I'm trying to sew my first buttonhole. It sews briefly then 6L comes on the computer and it won't complete the buttonhole What am I doing wrong?


Make sure you pull down the buttonhole lever from the underside of the machine (near where the needle threader is) If you don't do this, the machine will make a few stitches and then stop. with error 6L.

thanks for using fixya.
