    Different model, but same problem. Stitch looks ok on top but underneath the thread is loose, gets balled up and jams.

Several things could be happening. It may be the hook/needle timing. Or it could be the feeddogs are not moving (that's the toothy looking part under the presser foot that moves the fabric). Recommend removing thread and bobbin (needle and presser foot). Slowly move the handwheel and put your finger on top of the feeddogs to determine if they are moving back and forth and are high enough to move the fabric. Check to make sure you had not manually lowered the feed dogs. You may need to take it to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for their assistance.

What am I doing wrong when the stitching on top of the material is ok and straight and the backside is knotting?


wrong bobbin tension , but amazingly its actually easier to adjust the top threads tension to compensate for it , use your tension knob to slowly adjust , try an inch , slowly adjust try an inch , and so on to get a top and bottom thread tension to match , this will need to be adjusted for each major change in fabric (aka , knits to woven )

Thread on my consew 225 keeps balling the thread on the bottbottom


Sounds like bird nesting. The upper thread accumulates under the fabric creating a series of loops and knots.

First: Install a brand new needle and make sure it is installed facing the correct direction. (A new needle is the least expensive fix for most sewing machine issues.)

Second: Remove the thread. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Make sure it is threaded correctly (consult the owner's manual).

Third: Pull up the bobbin thread through the fabric and gently hold the thread tails in your left hand while slowly taking the first couple of stitches.

When I thread my machine and start sewing my bobbin thread gets a huge nest underneath and knots underneath my fabric. What am I doing wrong?


It is your top threading, totally rethread, then with presser foot up, pull on top thread, it should feed smoothly, now put the presser foot down, pull thread, it should barely move. This should seat the thread in the tension discs.

The top thread is bunch up underneath the fabric. Was working fine one minute not the next. it makes a noise while the fabric is moving. works fine when there is no thread in the needle though


Your bobbin may have debris or thread stuck in it. Take the bobbin out and remove the bobbin assembly to examine, and clean if necessary. There is an adjustment screw(for tension)on the bobbin housing that can be culprit also. Another solution is to ask Husqvarna directly through this link...

Size of stitch


Sounds like malfunction with the feeddogs or stitch length balance. Without thread or fabric, turn the handwheel and watch the feeddogs (the toothy looking things under the presser foot which moves the fabric as you sew). The amount of distance they move with each revolution of the handwheel determines the stitch length. Watch to see whether they move from front to back. It may be that they are worn out or that they are just too low to adequately move the fabric as you sew. Take to authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for repair. This is not something that can be done by the owner. Check Husqvarna Viking website for dealer closest too you.

Bobbin thread one big snarly knot


First ensure that your bobbin is threaded correctly. Most drop in style bobbins the thread will feed off in a clockwise motion. Also make sure to only move the hand wheel (on the right) toward you (counter clockwise). When you begin sewing ensure that you start with the needle in the fabric and when you end that your needle is in the highest position.
