I filled the Bobbin, now how do I get it to go back to sewing

I filled the bobbin with thread on my Viking Husqvarna 120 and now I can't figure out how to get it to stop winding the bobbin and start sewing. Can you help? this is an older machine it was my Grandma's who has passed away.

The tab arm above the one and off button must be down to stop the winding it should stop winding when you lower it.

Something didn't click back in place when you removed the bobbin from the winding mechanism. Try winding another bobbin. Make sure it stops, then remove it. If the problem continues, take it to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. They should still be able to take a look at it. Check Husqvarna Viking website for dealer closest too you.

Why is my bobbin thread jamming on viking juliet sewing machine


Be sure to clean out any stray fibers or threads in the bobbin area. Make sure the bobbin is smooth and doesn't have nicks or scratches.

The top thread is getting very tangled in the bobbin case while sewing on my Husqvarna 183. It will continue to do this even after I have rethreaded top and bobbin thread.


there could be something wrong with the hook and hook race.

make sure that the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case

Viking husqvarna classica 100, thread tension


I suspect you are correctly threading the machine but the timing of the needle and bobbin hook is off. When the threaded needle goes into the bobbin area, a pointed hook grabs the thread and loops it with the bobbin thread. Something is catching when the needle starts to come up that is not allowing the bobbin thread to be pulled back through the needle plate opening by the upper thread. With machine threaded and bobbin in place, have the bobbin area open if possible and watch the thread interaction when the needle goes down. To set the hook/needle timing, normally covers have to be removed. Suggest taking it to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for service. You can find the nearest dealer by click on the "Dealer" link at http://www.husqvarnaviking.com
Good luck.

Thread bunching up around bobbin


If you do not have a user guide, you might want to find one. Try ebay or have an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer order you one. In fact I would find your nearest authorized Husqvarnia Viking dealer and visit them with you machine. They should be able to help you and usually are very helpful even if you didn't buy the machine from them. If they determine it is correctly threaded and the bobbin is ok, have it serviced by an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer or have them send it to Husqvarna Viking (SVP) Technical Service Dept in Tennessee for service. The machine should give you years of good performance.

Use only genuine Husqvarna Viking bobbins.

To find an authorized dealer near you, check the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

Good luck.

My 5 year old Huskystar 216 sewing machine is


Sounds like the hook/needle timing. To check do the following:

With the power off!!
remove bobbin and bobbin case.
push needle all the way to the left.
Turn handwheel toward you watching the needle and bobbin housing hook. The point of the hook should line up right above the eye of the needle.

If not timing, clean bobbin area removing lint and thread.
Check bobbin tension, should get slight resistance when pulling thread.
Make sure using only Husqvarna Viking bobbins -- most are green but they have new colors now. All will have the Husqvarna logo on them (an H). Make sure the bobbin is unwinding in the right direction.

Remove fabric. Pull extra long bobbin thread (about 3 inches). Hold upper thread tail in left hand, turn handwheel toward you for 1 revolution. Is the bobbin thread caught by the top thread and pulled through the opening of the needle plate?

If you are still unable to get a good stitch, take to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for service or have them send to Husqvarna Viking (SVP) Technical Service Dept for repair. A list of dealers close to you can be found at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

Good luck.

Thread ball up


Check your bobbin area. Make sure you have put the bobbin in the case with the H logo up and the thread pulls off the spool in a counter clockwise motion. Make sure the bobbin is sitting in the case and threaded through the "catch" on the bobbin case. Then leave a long piece of thread from the bottom, holding the end of the top thread, lower the needle for one revolution using the handwheel. Does the top thread catch the bobbin thread and pull it to the top? This is done without fabric. Your checking to determine if the top thread catches the bobbin thread and pulls it to the top. IIf it does not, it is most likely hook/needle timing. f it does, gently pull on the bobbin thread and determine if it pulls through with a little resistence (checking bobbin tension). Make sure you are using correct needle -- Schmitz or Inspira needles are recommended (Universal size 80 is standard). Make sure you are using Husqvarna Viking made for your machine -- original ones were green but there are some new colored ones but all have the Husqvarna logo on them. Otherwise take it to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. You can find your closest dealer at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us Good luck

Thread balls up underneath my feed dog when straight sewing. Why?????


Could be needle/hook timing. With machine off do the following to check timing -

remove bobbin and bobbin case.
push needle all the way to the left.
Turn handwheel toward you watching the needle and bobbin housing hook. The point of the hook should line up right above the eye of the needle.

If not timing, clean bobbin area and thread cutter area, removing lint and thread.
Check bobbin tension, should get slight resistance when pulling thread.
Make sure using only Husqvarna Viking bobbins -- most are green but they have new colors now. All will have the Husqvarna logo on them (an H). Make sure the bobbin is unwinding counter clockwise when going through the bobbin case.
Remove fabric. Pull extra long bobbin thread (about 3 inches). Hold upper thread tail in left hand, turn handwheel toward you for 1 revolution. Is the bobbin thread caught by the top thread and pulled through the opening of the needle plate?

If you are still unable to sew without thread balling up, take to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for service or have them send to Husqvarna Viking (SVP) Technical Service Dept for repair.

Husqvarna viking, interlude 435...unable to solve tension problem


Sounds like the tension unit is at fault. First check the bobbin tension by removing the bobbin case. Use a half-full to 3/4 full bobbin. Be sure it is threaded through the bobbin case with thread hanging straight down with tension spring on top. Tie the stitch plate to the end of the thread. If the thread pulls the bobbin out, the bobbin tension is too loose. If it does not move when "jiggling" the bobbin, it is too tight (which is not likely based on your description). Small screw (through an open hole) on the side of the bobbin case adjusts the tension of the bobbin case. Left for loose and Right for tighter. Otherwise, contact local authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for their assistance. You can find the closest dealer at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us Good luck.
