Husqvarna making squeaking noise

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
serviced

SOURCE: Brother Sewing Machine model:CS8150 bobbin thread problems

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.

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: my sewing machine keeps getting jammed when

Hello,
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
sew.

* 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.

Why is my handwheel hard to turn and making a squeaky noise?


Sounds like possible thread in the gears, or the wrong oil might have been used to oil the machine. Sewing machine oil (clear oil) should be used for oiling the machine. I use an oil called Tri-Flow Lubricant which is available at your local bicycle repair shop.

Hi...I have a Toyota DC31 which I have to admit, haven't used for a few years because each time I've used it the bottom row of stitches kept snagging. I tried to slacken the tension but it...


hi, when a machine sit up for awhile, the grease & oil can because nasty, & it needs to have new fresh grease & oil put in it, & also check to make sure there's nothing loose or damaged. so having a machine service at least once a year is good.

if you could explain the problem more maybe I can help you. just send me a comment

I have not sew with my machine in about a year or two do i oil it or just start to sew.. it not making no noise or any thing..


It depends on how many years you have owned the machine. If the machine is less than 5 years old, I would say that it is safe to operate it without oiling. This type of machine typically has few non plastic gears. If you wish to be on the safe side you can oil the machine according to the owner's manual. Be careful not to use too much oil.

Squealing noise Husquvarna 3310 sewing machine. Still sews ok but noise must be harming the machine. Anyone know what I can check?


My Designer 1 started squeaking recently and, like you, I was concerned even though it sewed like usual. I emailed my tech. and he suggested either feed lifter mechanism or feed cam were the most likely causes - simple to repair but I would need to bring machine in for him to hear because there could be other reasons for the squeak. Well I did not have time to go then and there. Next day when I sewed, the squeak was gone!
At the time it squeaked I was sewing through several fairly thick layers (making a pot holder) and sewing very slowly. The next day I sewed normal cloth at normal speed but no matter how slowly I sewed, I could not get it to squeak. I will get it checked eventually but as long as it is squeak-less I'm not going to be concerned.
If yours squeaks all the time no matter what you are sewing then, yes, I think you should get it looked at. Be sure that nothing is rubbing against the body of the machine i.e. accessory tray and making the noise.
