Question about Sewing Machines
Try changing the needle
rethead the machine top and bobbin using every thread guide
which is important to the tension on the machine.
make sure the bobbin is not over full
make sure the bobbin is not warped or damaged
also make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin
case, if the bobbin is a front or side loading make sure the bobbin
case is inserted correctly into the machine
if none of these suggestions help then it's also possible that the
machines timing could be a problem and needs to be checked.

Thank you, thank you! I just tightened the screw on my bobbin case and that instantly fixed my thread tension problem. How on earth are you supposed to know about the little screw?! I thank you so much for the tip!

Sounds as though you've misthreaded the upper tension. The best way to verify this would be to thread your machine, lower the presser foot on to the material. Now try pulling the thread through the needle. (Assuming your upper tension dial is set to a number greater than one). You should feel resistance. Should you not feel resistance, rethread your upper tension.

1. Put in a new needle
2. Take the thread off the top of your machine and rethread the top. Make sure the presser foot is in the up positon when you thread your machine because that is when the tensions discs separate so your thread gets deep into the unit where it belongs. The tension dial (the small dial) should be on 4 or 5.
3. Inspect the bobbin area. Do you see the thread laying across the bobbin itself? You should alway see the thread laying across the bobbin in that model. That tells you that you've threaded the bobbin case correctly. The thread must be pulled into the metal guide of the bobbin case, from approximately the 6 O'clock postion to the 7 O'clock position.
4Never turn the handwheel away from you with the 415. You'll notice that the take up lever is of a more open design. If you turn the handwheel backwards (away from you) the thread will jump out of the lever and jamming will result.

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.

Do you mean the thread knots and loops up under or over the fabric? If so it sounds like you need to re-thread. You may have not put the thread into one of the tension wheels correctly. Keep the presser foot up when you do it.
