Question about Husqvarna Designer I

1 Answer

The motor makes a whirring running noise but the needle does not go up and down

I was in the middle of sewing an embroidery. the needle stopped and the motor sounds like it is running or a fan is running. I tried turning off and restarting but it still does this. I also tried just regular sewing and it does the same thing. Is there a belt that could be broken or is it something really bad?

The embroidery unit needs to be calibrated. Can only been done by a trained dealer. you can relax, it is not a major issue and shuold not cost you a arm and a leg. Ask the dealer to also calibrate your touch screen and download the working hours on your machine.

SOURCE: Needle Sticks - Huskystar E10

When it feels like the needle is jammed, open the bobbin cover and release the two black retaining levers, one on either side of the bobbin case. The hook cover that is visible will be released. If the machine turns by hand smoothly, you may have a piece of the broken needle, or just a piece of thread stuck behind the hook or hook cover causing the bind. This problem will sometime make you swear that the needle is stuck in something because it will usually bind while the needle is down in the fabric.

I finally fixed this machine. What was wrong was the PC board. It was very expensive to fix. Over $500.

SOURCE: 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).

SOURCE: the embroidery arm is not working properly

You definitely need to take that in for service. The machine has a feature that lets it know which hoop is on the machine so is can't sew outside the hoop area, so if it does, you'll need a technician to make it right.

If your machine is not broken, it most likely is seized due to old oil that has hardened. How long since its last service? Refrain from trying to run the machine until the issue is resolved as it could damage the motor. or more...

Pfaff 1222 E Makes a whirring noise, wheel won't turn


How long has it been since it's had a thorough cleaning & oiling (including the internal moving parts)? Resist trying to run the machine if the only thing running is the motor. You could burn up the motor or possibly break a gear.

The following method has helped me rescue some frozen older Berninas (which your model seems to resemble). This method worked on all of them except one that also needed a cracked gear replaced.

Machine embroidery needle changes position


truthfully I think their something wrong with the computer in the machine because
the bobbin locked up. sometimes when a sewing machine jams it can make
the machine jump time.
but the needle moved positions, some part of the machine is changed during the
jam up, even tho you reset it.
embroidery machine are expensive, my suggestion is to have the machine checked

The bobbin thread nested underneath, tried to stop


Have you turned it back on once the machine has cooled down? If you have, and it still makes noise and won't stitch then I think the motor is damaged and you need to take it for repair. Does it do ordinary sewing or is the motor completely uncooperative?
Meantime, take the bobbin assembly apart and clean it out - ask for more instructions if you don't know how to do this. Be sure both the top thread and bobbin threads are threaded correctly and clicked into their respective tensions. Did you "park" the embroidery unit before turning the machine off? You need to do this, if the machine will do it that is.
You will need to take the machine in to be checked even if you do get it working. Any major problem with nesting - did you break needles too? - almost certainly will have put your needle assembly out - it will need re-centering.

Wheel won't turn


Hello,

The same thing happend to me with an older model (Singer XL 10). I have been sewing a decorating stitch and the machine stopped suddenly. Now I am not able to turn the hand wheel anymore like I should (I can move it a little bit, but the needle does not move up and down and the wheel is getting stuck). When I try to use the pedal the motor makes a horrible noise and stops. The needle is not moving up and down.

Is there a solution for that problem? I moved from Europe to Australia and have not used my machine since. Today is the first day, I was cleaning and oiling it and it first sewed perfectly. In case that there would be thread stuck somewhere, how could I possibly clean that? I already took off the plastic from the head, but I can not see where the problem is.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

Best regards,
Nelly
