Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

1 Answer

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.

I turn the maching off and back on before re-threading. I can never figure out what is wrong or how to fix it, but it will randomly start working again. Sometimes the bobbin case cover will pop open while sewing as well.

#37 in the list as of me posting this. You can get a CD version too but you'll just pay more and wait longer for the same thing. Once you have it print the manual (preferably both sides to keep it small) ang you'll have it. You can also peruse eBay to see if anyone is selling a manual but I doubt that will yield regular results. The machine looks to be pretty basic and standard but it's best you have the manual to get the most out of the machine. Also be sure to check the cleaning and lubrication section and go through the process so that the machine is in top working order before you put it into regular use - saves a lot of headaches.

SOURCE: bobbin thread bunches up creating a tangled mess under the plate

This could either be due to the bobbin being wound too loosely, or the tension on the top thread is too loose. This just happened to me the other day, and I thought it was the bobbin thread, but then I put another bobbin in with a different color than the top thread (this is a huge help in diagnosing thread issues), and I was surprised to find that it was actually the top thread that was a big loopy mess on the underside of the fabric. I fixed it by tightening the tension on the top thread (quite a bit), and everything was fine.

SOURCE: Top thread won't pick up the bobbin thread

re insert the needle, maybe you did not put the needle up as far as it is to go. Make sure the flat side of the needle is to the back of the machine. Without any thread in the machine hand turn the wheel and look to see if the hook of your bobbin would/could catch the thread (to see if timing is right)
then thread the machine and hand turn the wheel and see what it is doing.
Your timing might be off, but I do not think that is likely. Though it is possible that when the needle fell out, it hit something hard, broke, and pushed the machine out of timing. then you need to bring it in.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 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.

My top thread is getting tangled up in the bobbin case area, even when hand turning the wheel with the bobbin and case removed; trying to fix a serious tension problem.


First, install a brand new needle.

Remove the thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct and that the bobbin is loaded and threaded correctly. Set the top tension to the midway point--you'll probably need to tweak the tension for your particular machine.

Bring the bobbin thread to the top of the fabric (manually with the handwheel). Then gently hold both thread tails in your left hand while you begin to slowly take the first couple of stitches.

If you are still getting thread barfs in the bobbin area, your machine may be out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

Bobbin thread tangles


when this happens have you check to see if the thread has come off the thread take up lever?

I am sewing scout badges on a uniform and when I sew there is a bunch of needle thread bunched up on the bottom (the top looks fine). And the needle thread gets all caught up around the bobbin.


Clean out the bobbin area if there are any thread tangles there.

Refer to the maintenance section of the manual - see the configuration of the bobbin case and shuttle race? The bobbin case as an extending arm and the race a notch. When inserting the bobbin case into the shuttle, turn the handwheel so the needle is at it's highest position. Then lift the lever on the back of the bobbin case and insert the cast into the shuttle, arm pointing straight up toward the bed of the sewing machine.

Now thread the machine with the presser foot up - always - and see if the tangling stops.

When you forget to lift the presser foot before threading the machine, the tension control does not open to capture the thread. Then when you begin to sew, the top thread has no tension, and the bobbin thread, which does have tension, pulls the top thread to the bottom in messy loops.

Clean any tangles from the bobbin area.

Always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up so the thread can properly seat into the tension control.

Hand walk a few stitches to see if the thread still feeds too fast from the spool.

When thread pools (falls off the spool) a thread net will help - you can get these at a sewing machine dealer. I use to find them at fabric stores, but have not seen any lately with sewing/serging notions.

Needle severs thread each time I start sewing


Take the thread completely off the top of the machine. Put in a new needle. Remove the bobbin. When you rethread the top of the machine make sure the presser foot (that rests on the fabric) is in the "UP" position and rethread the top. Also when you thread the top, put some "pull" on the thread as you thread it, don't just lay the thread in the tracks. You need to pull the thread with some taughtness through the machine so it gets into the correct places under the covers so you have good tension and good stitching. Then put the bobbin back in and make sure when you thread the bobbin case that the thread "clicks" slightly as you pull the thread into the metal tension area of the black bobbin case. Anytime a sewing machine breaks thread at the needle, you should unthread the entire top and rethread it because the thread can jump out of it's guides that are under the plastic covers and you won't be able to see it, but you will see very ugly stitching!!!
