Hi Beckham363,
I'm not completely familiar with that particular model but can offer some general advice. In the middle of your crank wheel on the top right of the machine, there should be a smaller wheel inside that. You need to turn that towards you until it doesn't come any further. The know you turned is going to feel lose, that's good! Now if you look on the top of your machine on the right, there should be a small shaft coming up about and inch high. You need to then put your bobbin on the shaft and push it to the right. What that does is connect the bobbin winder tire inside your machine to your hand wheel which is connected to the motor via your belt. Now just thread your bobbin case and push your foot control! If you have any more questions just let me know and I'll be glad to take pictures if needed. Also you can purchase a side bobbin winder pretty cheap on my website here:

Hi can wind bobbins while you are sewing your product, or you can wind them seperately. To wind them seperately, pull out the bobbin case, lift the presser feet up and lock them in the up position, undo the threading beyond the tension assembly. The takeup will create a birdsnest if you don;t pull the thread from it. Wind your bobbins, the re-thread your machine, insert your bobbin case, drop the presser feet, pick up the bobbin thread and sew away. If you need any other input, call me at 888-283-9640.

I have a designer 1 and the bobbin thread is showing on the top when I embroider. I have tried rewinding with the same thread I am using on the top, replacing the needle, cleaning the bobbin area,...

It sounds as though maybe the bobbin thread is not "clicked" into the tension slot correctly. You need to be sure it goes into the slot and you can hear/feel it seat itself in there. As a last resort, you can tighten the bobbin tension. Take the bobbin case out. On the side there is a recessed screw. If you think of it as a clock, turn the screw in no greater than 5 minute increments - to the right to tighten, to the left to loosen.

Is your machine sewing regular stitching (i.e. not embroidery, hoop off) okay or is the bobbin thread not right for that either? Next time you have your machine serviced, be sure to take in your embroidery unit too so the technician can set it up to be good for both ordinary sewing and for embroidery. I actually have a second bobbin case that I adjust if necessary for whatever project I'm working on that needs anything other than "default" setting for the bobbin. Thay way, I'm not messing about with the bobbin that has been set correctly by the technician but you can easily adjust your bobbin if it needs it. Just remember to put it back to "normal" when you are done.

I have a designer 1 that won't release the bobbin.

Winding too tight;
Whenever your bobbin won’t come off any Viking, Designer 1 included, it’s because it wound too tight. This is how you know. It went on easy! To get it off, don’t pry, slowly unwind all thread, it will change shapes and let go of the bobbin winder. My favorite way to wind a bobbin on a Viking is to thread the machine through the needle and go under the foot then up to the bobbin winder (it has to be under the foot or it winds too tight. If it still winds too tight, lay your thread down instead of standing it up, the weight of the thread can increase tension on the winding process also check that you use a spool cap as large as or slightly larger than your spool. If it still winds tight. I’ll explain what bad thread can do.

Test your thread quality to start, thread your machine and LIFT the presser foot (this opens the tension disks). Pull your top thread straight back. If you feel no tension no mater how much thread you pull, your thread is good. If that your machine passes that test (tip: always check your thread this way when you thread your machine)

Bobbin won't wind

The bobbin rewind unit needs to be inspected. In order to do that the covers have to be removed. It could be the wiring to the board may be disconnected or the rewind unit is just broken and needs to be replaced. You might want to take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page -
Good luck.
