If you have a light gray button then you need to have the embroidery unit upgraded. The hoop will fit on the machine, but the machine can not recognize the hoop. The new hoop holder that needs to be installed will have a second sensor trigger allowing the machine to recognize more hoops. The original holder only has one trigger and can only recognize earlier hoops.
Contact an authorized Husqvarna repair center to have your embroidery unit upgraded.

When I install embroidery hoop light keeps blinking n saying wrong hoop size looked it up n it's saying malfunction


Ok, there are a couple of possibilities, and I'm going to include an image. I"m not sure whether you're trying to use the small or large hoop, but the first thing you should try is turn off the machine, take the hoop off entirely, then turn on the machine without anything and let it reset to its default position, which will be the center. If it has a problem there, make sure the needle it at its highest position.

Next, put the large hoop on, bring up a design, (preferably a design that came with your machine--there are sample designs in the \Library directory where the program is--that's generally in c:\program files\futuraquartet--and is designed for the hoop you're trying to use, and transmit to machine. If it tells you the hoop is the wrong size, download a patch from www.futura-support.com. If it STILL tells you you have the wrong size, reseat your USB cable into the machine and tape it in place with masking or duct tape.

The third possibility--and the one pictured in the photo I'm going to attach--is there is a tab on your hoop which indicates the hoop size, and your TAB may be off. It needs to be dead center of the sensor, which is also pictured. A while ago a BUNCH of hoops were manufactured with the tabs slightly off, and if it's off, your machine can't read the size. What generally happens there, though, is it will indicate that there is NO hoop attached, rather than the wrong size.

You can see the sensors--they're inside the arm where you put your hoop, and they're not covered up. Below it are the large hoop (top), and small hoop (bottom). The hoop tabs have to match up to the sensors exactly, and you'll be able to see if it doesn't by matching up the notch in the hoop that matches the catch in the embroidery arm.

How do i calibrate the hoops on a baby lock emp6


This is a translation of instruction from the Service Manual for the Brother PR600, the twin of the Babylock EMP6. I will testify this works because I just did it to stop the insanity of my EMP6 thinking everything was a 5x7 hoop. If you look on page 4-36 of the free PR620 manual http://www.brodyrmaskiner.se/service/pr620/pr-620-service.pdf you will find the same exact set of instructions that are in the PR600 manual. So here are the exact steps to augment the manual's instructions.
1. Turn off the machine.
2. Press all three buttons (start, threader and cutter) and keep them pressed while turning the machine on.
3. Press MAIN BOARD TEST MODE.
4. Press A/D TEST.
5. Put the largest hoop on the machine (7 7/8 x 11 3/4).
6. Press LL.
7. Put the smallest hoop on the machine (1 1/2 x 2 3/8).
8. Press S.
9. Take the smallest hoop off the machine.
10 Slide the arm to where the knob on the arm is when the large hoop is on the machine.
11 The reading on the screen should be very close to the value that is in the LL setting.
12 If not, go through the large hoop steps (5-6) again.
13 Slide the arm to where the knob on the arm is when the smallest hoop is on the machine.
14 The reading on the screen should be very close to the value that is in the S setting.
15 If not, go through the smallest hoop steps (7-8) again.
16 Press close when you have both settings close. They need not be identical but they do need to be no further than 200 away from the screen value.
17 Turn the machine off.
18 Turn the machine back on, load a file, and see if you have the same results that I had; it will show the proper hoops when you press the hoop symbol and it will also center itself in the hoop properly.

You can buy the PR600 service manual online for about $12. However, you have the 620 manual for free and there is really very little difference. I have found the manual invaluable in saving me trips to the shop and doing my own repairs.

My Husqvarna designer SE embroidery unit keeps giving an error message "install hoop correctly". I've checked everything but can't get around the message. can anybody help ,?


You have probably got the machine set to use a different size hoop. Click on the hoop icon and change it to the size you are using. Hope this helps you.

Don't know for sure what is happening, but you should not put on a hoop until you are actually ready to embroider. The unit goes on while the machine is turned off; turn on the machine; it will make a noise; you should get a pop-up on your screen to Calibrate the unit. Touch this button, and the arm moves into position ready. Load your design and choose the correct hoop then put the hoop and project on the machine. Also be sure that your design will fit in the hoop selected.

I have the quilters 150x150 hoop and I need an update to use it, the button on my embroidery machine is grey I think it needs to be dark blue


Dark grey, actually, but you don't need the upgrade. Set the hoop size at the machine for the 150 x 240 hoop and the 150 x 150 hoop will work. Just be sure that the design starts in the centre i.e. don't move it up or down at the machine Embroidery screen. Before you begin sewing, check that the design will fit in the hoop without bumping the sides of the hoop. Use the Check Size button which is on the second screen of the Embroidery Screen (touch More on bottom right of first screen). The Check Size button is the one on the bottom right - the first button to the left of "More". Touch it once, hoop moves to top left of design; touch again hoop moves to bottom left of design; again hoop moves to bottom right; again hoop moves to top right.

Make yourself a note so that when you next take your D1 in for its regular service, get the hoop upgrade done at the same time. You need to have at least version 2.1 of the machine software installed - your tech. can do this for you too. It is a really minor adjustment so should not add much to the service cost. Be sure to take the embroidery unit in too when you go for the service.

I have a 170x100 hoop. My machine does not give


If it is not highlighted at the machine that means that the design you want to sew will not fit that hoop. You do not need a download for that hoop, just need to use designs that fit the embroidery field.

Sometimes you think a design will fit but the machine thinks otherwise. Trust the machine - it knows where the stitches are going and knows when it can't do it. I just loaded a design whose longest dimension was 97cm, other side was a lot smaller, but it would not let me sew it in the 100cm x 100cm hoop.

I was able to use my 150 x 150 hoop instead but if you do not have a choice of hoop, try downsizing the design in the Adjust menu. Try only one click each for height and width and then check if the hoop is available. If not, downsize one more click each dimension. Don't downsize a huge design using this technique - you won't like the result!

You definitely need to take that in for service. The machine has a feature that lets it know which hoop is on the machine so is can't sew outside the hoop area, so if it does, you'll need a technician to make it right.

My embroidery unit does not recognize my hoop size. I am using the 240 x 150 and I have the size selector set to the size. When I try to start my project the screen says to attach correct hoop size. I...


The first thing to check is the software version on your machine. Later versions are far better at recognizing the proper hoop than the earlier versions. The current version is 2.24 . Check this by looking at the bottom, right corner of the welcome screen when the machine is first turned on. The numbers in that corner are your software version.
If you are in the 2's, then adding the latest probably won't change this problem. Make sure that when the hoop is slid into position you do not go beyond the proper position. The release button on the hoop holder should drop down fully. If it is slightly raised, pull the hoop back toward you, without holding down on the button and see if it clicks down farther. If so, I recommend that you press the button just when you start the hoop onto the machine, then release it and as the hoop slides back it will click into the hole. Wiggle the hoop a little and the button should seat fully and then the machine should recognize it. If it still does not recognize the hoop, you may need professional attention.
