    Hi everyone. I'm new here and I live in Massachusetts. I have a Viking Rose and the other day it kept telling me that my presser foot wasn't down when it was. I took it to be checked out and was told that the sensor was gone. Instead of ordering a new sensor they bypassed it and it seems to have done the trick. Has anyone else had this problem?

    I had that problem when I 1st got my Viking Rose in 96 or 97. It became a known defect after being in for repair 3 times in several months. My machine was replaced in 97 after they resolved the issue.

    Are you the original owner? I'm surprised you did not have the problem sooner. I was doing a lot of quilting back then as I retired when I got my machine in 1996. Mine was still under warranty & I made a lot of phone calls & letters to - I think it was Sue Hausman - who was in charge back then. I was also working - teaching quilting - for a Viking dealer.

    I bought mine in 1999 and have never had a problem until now. The dealer I bought it from no longer exists. It runs fine now but I just hoping it continues to.

    Unless it was a leftover or something, the machines manufactured in 1999 should not have had the problem. I had to wait for them to create a fix before I could get my replaced & that was in 1997. You might call Viking & see if they can tell you when your machine was manufactured.
