Question about Husqvarna Designer I

1 Answer

PR600 Needle #4

Needle 4 sews correctly, however it will only sew about 20-30 stiches at a time and stops. I have to cut the thread and then the machine will start to sew again. I have adjusted the tention... it makes no difference?

My sewing machine straight stitch sews in reverses but misses stiches while going forward


try these suggestions
Skipped stitches
1. The needle is not inserted correctly
Remove needle & reinsert needle( flat side towards the back of machine)
2. The needle is damaged
replace with new needle
3. The wrong size needle is being used
Choose a needle to suit the thread & fabric
4. The foot not attached correctly
Check & attach correctly

I have a pr600 brother embroidery machine,it trims the thread too short


Make sure that when your machine stops and cuts that your needle is in the upper most position. Other than that you may need an adjustment from a pro repairman.

I have kanmore sewing machine its not stiches at all one time noise & stop stiches thered not pick up for bobin its not come out.


Wow. If I understand your attempt at English. Your machine made a noise and now won't sew or pick up the bobbin thread.

First change your needle and make sure it's full inserted and correctly oriented in the needle bar. Do a test stitch on scrap fabric.

If you still have problems.. check the timing. The shuttle hook should just be starting to pass the needle scarf when the needle is at the lowest point of travel.

I hope that helps you. Good luck.

Sewing in reverse cuts top thread, help? Please!


the fabric & thread & needle may not be compatable
try changing the needle- it may be damaged
the horrible grinding noise needs to be check --the machine needs to be serviced
check for burrs on the needle plate & on the bobbin
some sewing machines don't do with strong material

When I am sewing it will sew about 3 stiches and then jam.. It does it if I change weight of material or it will s kip stiches.


Skipped stitches is usually indication that needle is blunt or burred.
Or if you are using a sharp needle on knit fabrics it may also skip a little.

Not sure what you mean by "change weight of material" - do you mean you are sewing applique and going from one fabric weight onto another? or different sewing projects?

It is a good idea to change your needle for each new project (4-6 hours sewing time max) and choose the right type of needle and size for your project.

However, the jamming part sounds more like thread tension issues, especially if the jamming is happening underneath from the bobbin. If stitching is loose underneath, then top tension is the problem and visa versa.

Recheck your threading path, top and bottom tensions and that you have good quality thread. Change the needle, rewind a fresh bobbin, thread up and try again.

There is really good info on www.sewing.about.com or I refer to my Singer Sewing Machine textbook at lot too. Good luck.

I have gotten my Mother- in -Laws sewing machine it said on back it is a 1764180 kenmore 24 stich , I can not get it to sew stiches in row it skips , I had no instructions with it for settings etc. can...


Hi Vicki
It's possible that the needle is too small for the size of thread you are using. Also make sure thread is not wrapped around the needle and that the needle is properly seated in the needle bar. It's also possible that the machine needs to be timed and serviced to correct this problem. Is it possible to get the users manual from your MIL? It would have the information you need reguarding needle sizes and threading, etc.

Bobbin thread not feeding into the upper needle thread


completely unthread the machine....ensure the needle piston shaft is in the correct position and retread the upper. reinstall the bobbin and turn the machine by hand to engage the bobbin thread. Draw the bobbin thread through the stitch plate and with the needle thread, allow to trail off the back. attempt to sew a piece of scap material.

please let me know what happens at this point.
