Question about Sewing Machines
I haven't used my sewing machine in over a year and have recently wanted to make a few things but when I went to use the machine it made a squeaking noise only when I'm trying to sew. It also won't stitch anything and keeps saying that there is no thread (when I make the first stitch it makes a tangled mess and won't sew anything after that). It's a Husqvarna Viking 350.
Try changing the needle
try a different bobbin--make sure the bobbin is turned the right way
in the bobbin case
also try a different thread
make sure the top has not come off the thread take up lever
also the machine may have a timing problem and need to be

The top of the machine is not threaded correctly. First raise the presserfot then rethread the machine. Bottom looping is usually caused by a lack of top tension. There could allso be a bur on the hook.

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.

Here are a couple of things to try.
* Un-thread your machine and remove your bobbin. Clean any loose thread or lint out of your
bobbin case. Re-thread your machine, reinsert and re-thread your bobbin.
* Change your bobbin
There could be a nick along the edge of your bobbin spool that’s catching your thread as you
* When you start to sew a seam, grasp the upper and bobbin thread tails. Hold them back
and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting
caught in your machine.
I hope this helps.

SOURCE: thread tangled in the bobine
I had this same problem yesterday. I took apart the needle tension casing and now it doesn't get tangled or stop. The only thing is the bobbin is not sewing...it looks fine on the top, but the bottom is just loose loops.
