I have very old model Husqvarna as per pic. I had a bad cotton jam and had to remove the casing underneath that the bobbing holder sits in. I notice it has 3 markings stamped on it which look like crowns. How do I align this to replace it back into the machine. I did it once by fluke but can't get it right this time and the needle is hitting metal.

Re: Needle hitting metal Husqvarna 33-10 ?
I'm not familiar with this model. I'm assuming this has been resolved. If not suggest taking it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for assistance.

First, make sure there is no debris and scraps of thread in the bobbin area. I'm sure you did that already. I assume you also tried it with another thread just to be sure. I would suspect that the timing went out of whack. The machines depend on a synchronization between the needle motion and the bobbin action underneath. I once had a Singer that slipped and I had to reset the timing. If it is the timing synch problem then it would happen consistently and not work sometimes and then not work other times. G
This is usually what happens if the bobbin case gets dislodged, its just held in place by a magnet but if you have a jam up, often gets moved out of position. Remove top metal plate, take out bobbin, and have a look at the bobbin case, should be two metal markers or red dotsmfront side that align. Lift the case out by grasping edge and lifting up and towards you, clean underneath with the little brush, remove any jammed up threads, then return case to position, aligning the marks.

That use to concern me too! I thought it signalled a problem, but my bobbin case has always been loose and that was not what was causing my thread and fabric jam. Usually what causes the jam is an incorrectly wound bobbin, wrong needle or old needle, old thread, or a slightly warped bobbin that is hard to see/detect. Change everything out--needle, thread, bobbin...this usually does the trick!
the timing has, gone there is a screw holding the spool carrage on to the shaft lossen this a little so that it still grips but will turn, the neddle should pass the point on the spool case just after the eye comes level with the spool point and hence pick up the lower cotton and just miss the spool case, after re timing turn over by hand to ensure nothing is hitting anything else.
I had this problem when I first bought my machine. I took it in and they told me it was a recall problem. All the machines were having the same problem. They fixed it and I have not had the problem since. I bought mine at a Joanne fabrics. Hope this helps.
This has happened to me as well. What I usually do is:-
* remove bobbin case and clean out any lint, also under the needle plate, then replace needle plate , bobbin case and the little front cover. replace the bobbin , checking that you have the thread going the correct way.
* replace the needle with a new one of the correct size for the weight of your fabric and the weight of your thread
*remove and rethread the top thread
* check that the stabilizer is of sufficient weight for the density of the design. (You may need to float an extra piece of stabilizer underneath the hoop)
* check also that it is bobbin-fill in your bobbin (it is easy to get it mixed up)
* when stitching out lace, sometimes it helps to hoop the solvy double.
The tension may be too tight causing the needle to break or the needle is hitting the bobbin case cam causing it to break. Suggest you take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service if the problem still exists.
