Take the bottom plate off where the foot rides and watch the hook as the needle bar goes up and down you will be able to see why. to cure this problem take the plate off where your tension adjustment is because to cure the problem you have to adjust the needle bar either up or down to make the needle meet the hook when the needle is just starting up.

Model 230. Why is it losing the thread at the needle everytime I sew?


The thread sounds like it is not running freely so the upper tension is either too tight or blocked by lint.
If neither of these solutions work then try changing your needle as a blunt or wrong needle can also be a cause

When I start sewing the back of thread is all overlap and tangled what can I do?


A more detailed description would be helpful, but my guess is that you have lost all of your upper tension.
Unthread the machine. Raise the presser foot. Turn the handwheel until the take-up lever is at it's highest position. Set the upper tension dial/knob to 5. Thread the machine.
With the presser foot up, the upper thread should pull through easily and then grab when the presser foot is lowered.
Test sew.
The upper tension pulls the stitches up and the lower tension pulls the stitches down. When they pull properly, the stitch is even.

check that the bobbin thread is pulled thru 'the tongue' of the bobbin case: that is what controls general tension of the lower thread. also make sure the upper thread is threaded thru the tension disk and the disk is 'grabbing it'.

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.

The bobbin is bird nesting on my viking emerald


Check that it is threaded correctly (both top and bottom) making sure that the upper thread is in the takeup lever and the bobbin is guided through the tension spring in the bobbin case. Watch the needle as you slowly turn the handwheel counter clockwise (toward you) and the needle point touches the fabric (make sure presser foot is down). Is the thread still relatively taunt? If it is loose, the upper thread tension unit does not have enough tension. Check the areas where the thread goes and make sure you remove any loose threads or fluff which could be inhibiting the tension discs from closing over the thread. If the tension unit still is not tightening enough, the tension unit may need to be replaced or the circuit board replaced. If everything is ok in the upper thread area, now look at the bobbin area. With no fabric, watch as the needle enters the bobbin area. Does it go down and the upper thread catch the bobbin thread and pulls it to the surface? Check for anything preventing the bobbin thread from being pulled up to the surface through the needle plate. If you have still not been able to resolve the problem suggest you take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

Can't draw up the bobbin thread on my Brother LS-1217 sewing machine... it just won't catch


Make sure you have enough of a "tail" from teh bobbin... Probably 4 inches or so before starting. If that doesn't work, check upper tension and needle is properly seated.

The needle drags the thread down and then starts back up causing a loop at the eye which a shuttle goes through and acrries the upper thread over the bobbin. The upper thread then drags the bobbing thread up.

Bobbin problem


Suspect the needle and hook timing is off causing threads not to catch to make a stitch.

Try these troubleshooting tips:
With machine off, remove the bobbin and bobbin case. Push the needle bar to the left. Lower the needle to the bobbin case and notice when the needle starts traveling upward does the tip of the hook in the bobbin area align with the eye of the needle? If it does not align, the timing is off. If it does, move on to check upper tension:

Check that it is threaded correctly (both top and bottom) making sure that the upper thread is in the takeup lever. Watch the needle as you slowly turn the handwheel counter clockwise (toward you) and the needle point touches the fabric (make sure presser foot is down). Is the thread still relatively taunt? If it is loose, the upper thread tension unit does not have enough tension. Check the areas where the thread goes and make sure you remove any loose threads or fluff which could be inhibiting the tension discs from closing over the thread. If the tension unit still is not tightening enough, the tension unit may need to be replaced or the circuit board replaced. If everything is ok in the upper thread area, now look at the bobbin area. With no fabric, watch as the needle enters the bobbin area. Does it go down and the upper thread catch the bobbin thread and pulls it to the surface?

Bottom thread will not catch


Unplug the machine and remove the needle plate so that the bobbin case if fully exposed. Lift out the bobbin case and the cup that it sets in will be visible. Locate the "hook" on this cup. It is a finger with a sharp point at the upper edge of the cup. The hook is what grabs the thread from the needle while sewing.
  • Thread the needle.
  • Turn the handwheel by hand.
  • Watch the hook as it approaches the needle from right to left.
If the hook passes by the needle AFTER the eye of the needle is above it, you timing has slipped and the machine must be taken in for repair.
If the hook catches the thread from the needle, put everything back together and try threading again.
