SOURCE: my sewing machine is getting jammed up after 1

Rethread the machine. If you are threading it correctly the bobbin case may have gotten out of place and is causing it to jam every time. Many times the thread comes out of the take up lever (the thing that goes up and down) and you dont even realize it. Rethread first and be very deliberate to get it in the top tension correctly.

The overload message is usuall due to a bind in the mechanical function of the machine. When the motor has an extra "load" caused by something like a tight belt or dry bearing, it "overloads" the motor and the error message is displayed. It is doubtful your problem is computer related. Either way a trip to your service tech is required. If you continue to sew with it, you do run the risk of possible damage to some other parts of your machine. The computer portion of your Husqvarna is guaranteed for 5 years and the mechanical parts carry a 20 or 25 year guarantee depending on when you purchased your machine. A copy of your bill of sale from a Husqvarna Viking dealer or a stamped warranty card is the proof of purchase needed to obtain warranty replacement of parts. Labor is only guaranteed for 1 year.

Where is the reset button on Elna6004 6004, overload message keeps appearing


The message means that the motor is drawing too much current. Could be a mechanical bind or the motor itself is worn out.

Hope that helps.

Why does it say (overload) on the screen


I'M NOT FAMILIAR WITH THIS KENMORE BUT I WOULD CHECK THE BELT TO SEE IF IT IS STUCK, NOT ALIGNED OR TOO TIGHT. IF IT IS TOO TIGHT THE MOTOR WILL ALWAYS BE OVERLOADED.

I have a problem I lost my owners Manual so I can't figure out what LO means. I sure hope you can help me. Thank You Teresa


A button is pressed when the machine halts due to te overload. Wait for at least 15 seconds to recover. If thread jamming cuses overload, remove the tangled threads.

Sewing machine motor will not run after attempting


Overload Viking:
The machine has a built in overload protector, if your needle can’t penetrate, it may stop the machine from working for a few minutes. Just wait it will reset automatically. Then, try a Sharp needle (denim needle is ideal) and be sure to Never Never reverse sew on heavy fabric, your needle will bend and hit the needle plate, use the FIX button for knotting (it really does work).
