Freezing problem with d1 machine embroidery and regular sewing.

I have a designer 1. I will be embroidering and the machine freezes. I tried to do regular sewing but the machine freezes. I don't use it for a few days and then it starts up . Had this problem during the summer - thought it was the humidity - But weather has changed and it is still doing the same thing.

I can think of no good reason why this should be happening - afraid it means a trip to the technician's shop. Make sure to take your embroidery unit along too and preferably a design you have been working on when the problem occurred. Also any regular sewing projects you were doing when it happened so the tech. can know exactly what you were doing when the problem occurred and hopefully recreate it.

I have a futura SEQS 6000. It sews perfectly fine but when I try to embroider the thread is either unthreaded or becomes tangled with the bobbin thread and doesn't finish the design.


indicates that the needle thread is not tight enough some embroidery threads are finer than normal threads so require an increase in thread tension

I have a viking designer 1. When I put the embroidery arm on the pressed foot will not stay down. But does stay down when regular sewing arm is attached.


When embroidering, the presser foot hovers above the fabric a few millimeters. The machine does this automatically.

Bernina artista hoop not recognized


Calibrate the embroidery hoop


Note
The embroidery hoop can only be calibrated with the oval hoop.. You'll find the instructions for each machine in the relevant user manual.

How do I find out the embroidery time on my Viking Designer 1 sewing machine?


Hi there, If your trying to find out how long it took you to embroider something, You need to go to your touch screen menu- touch Set- then down at the bottom left of this screen and touch More- three (3) times you'll get to where it says Running time:(It's the 3rd Selection) There it will actually show you the total running time (Sewing and Embroidery If you haven't zeroed it out by hitting the zero (0) next to that selection.) You can do this on the touch screen with the embroidery unit on or off. You need to touch the zero (0) to zero out your time before you start an embroidery project. Once you've done this and you've finished an embroidery you can check how long it took by the touch screen menu- Set- touch More 3 times and there you will see how long on the Running time it took to embroider your design. I hope that helped. The total time your machine has ran (Embroidery and Sewing) is kept in Memory on the Service Screen that your Technician gets into when he services your machine. So your not actually wiping out that. The Set menu is just for you to keep track of how long your machine sews or embroiders something pretty much. I hope that helped you out with your question. Happy Sewing!! Kathy

Usb freezes up


If you're trying to see the embroidery designs on the stick, the embroidery unit has to be on the machine to view the designs in the larger size, so be sure to have it hooked up. If you're trying to select the regular stitches and the screen freezes, you need to take it in for service. You have a 5 year electrical / computer warranty on parts if you are the original purchaser. There will be a labor charge if it's over 1 year old.

Machine will freeze up on me while embroidering.


The e-unit may need calibrating. These are older machines and not like the ones out now. They are louder than the new embroidery mechanisms and not as smooth running as the newer ones. But when properly calibrated they do okay but are not the best quality. Don't compare them to the newer machines. It may be the computer board is going out too. If that happens, there isn't a way to fix as the boards are obsolete unless you can get an old one for parts. Check with a dealer for availability. Good luck.

I am trying to embroider something for the first time on my viking #1 husqvarna. Do I need presser foot Q/ or R/ .If it's R,I can't find it-what does it look like? I need someone to walk me thru the steps...


embroider on #1+:
If it's a #1+ I recommend the Q (the spring works better) it's hard to put on, but worth it.
Here we go:
1>Turn off machine (always when installing or removing embroidery unit)
2>Install Q Foot. Always leave presser foot pressure (on left end of machine) at 6 for presser foot Q
3>Insert Embroidery Card
4>Insert Embroidery cassette (matching #’s with card)
5>turn on machine
6>Turn on embroidery unit (on cassette)
7>Select design
7>Thread for color 1
8>press reverse to start the machine embroidering....weeeeeeeee!

Embroidery machine patterns are not consistant


I'm just beginning to work with my machine, but I have had a similar issue. Some of the possible solutions that I have found include (note: I've tried #1, I will try 2 and 3 soon)...
1. use stabilizer fabric.
2. if you're using tear-away stabilizer, and it is tearing prematurely, try a cut-away stabilizer (or maybe iron-on stabilizer?).
3. if you're embroidering on fabric like fleece, try 'hoopless embroidery' This involves using adhesive stabilizer - put the stabilizer in the hoop with no fabric, (if you don't have adhesive stabilizer, use regular stabilizer and spray it with a craft adehesive) then lay your fabric over the hoop and press the fabric onto the adhesive.
good luck.

Viking Designer 1 won't embroider


I have seen some of the older style machines that are very susceptible to static charge. Usually this doesn't happen with newer ones. If you get static shocks on door knobs in your house, do not touch the screen of your machine with your finger. Use a stylus instead. You may also try touching the metal presser bar just above the foot and ankle when sitting down at the machine prior to using the screen. This should not be happening with a new machine. Check with your dealer.
