Over locker loopy bottom stitch

Loopy on bottom means the top tensions need to be adjusted. "All on 3 means nothing" These are tension knobs and are not required to be on the same number.

In the mean time rethread the machine with a different color on each spool This will help you determine which thread is the offender. sew the same type of material this thread set up... tighten the corresponding tension dial. Once you get a good stitch, Lift the food, cut all the threads near the spools and tie off new thread/spools and pull the thread through to the needle. Once it is all threaded again test your stitch with the same fabric again.

Intermittent floppy disk drive for Husqvarna Viking Designer 1

Could need a new drive, could need a new cable, could need a new floppy disk.
Try the disks that came with the embroidery unit. If you put the same disk in 5 times will the machine respond the same way to it each time?

The 3-D embroidery system seems to be only compatible with downloading the designs to a floppy disk. I have a Husqvarna Designer I that has a USB port. Is there any way to download designs to an USB...

USB Designer 1s use Disk Manager, just like their floppy disk sisters, but it needs to be Disk Manager USB. New USB Des1s came with this program on a CD, and this software was also included free when a floppy disk Des1 was converted to USB. If you bought your D1 USB new, check the disks that came with it - one should be Disk Manager USB. If you purchased the machine second hand, contact the seller and ask for the program. It is a free standing program and you don't need a dongle. Check your 3D software - you might already have what you need. Open 3D, click down arrow for Accessories (far right-hand side) - what does your Disk Manager say? If it says Disk Manager USB you are okay to go.

I am not 100% sure of this, but I think that maybe the last update for 3D software (version 7.25) might have included Disk Manager USB. Go to the Husqvarna website and make sure your 3D is updated to the latest version.

If none of the above helps you, there is always the cheap cost embroidery software alternatives: Embird or Sew What. I believe they can write to Designer 1 USB sticks now.

I just bought a used Designer 1 with Customizing Software. The customizing program recognizes the a:Floppy external drive to receive designs. When I try opening the Disk Manager so I can download them,...

Don't insert the floppy disk in the drive until you are ready to actually do the writing to disk. If it still won't recognize that there is a design disk there, try re-formatting using disk manager - you will lose whatever designs are already on the disk, so make sure to save them to your hard drive using Windows Explorer first.
You might just need updated drivers for your floppy drive. Try an internet search by searching for Husqvarna Customizing drivers, or something like that.

I need to know how to download a CD onto a Floppy Disk for my Designer 1 I have the Customizing Plus Software, but I need to be explained in an easier manner as I have just learned a little about the...

Hi Maria, I'll try to explain this to you hopefully as simple as possible you being new to the computer an all. With your Customizing Plus Software you should have the Disk Manager program that came with it,correct? Because you need this program so you can bring your designs into it so that it can make a floppy disk or disks depending on how many designs you have on your CD. What this program does is makes a disk for your Designer 1 in the format (design language) of shv. that your machine can read to do the embroidery. It won't read regular design formats such as hus.,vip.,pes ext. Did you check out the tutorial that came with your software when you installed it? If not go to your start menu click on it go to All programs, a menu of all your programs should pop-up. Go to Embroidery System-Tutorials-Disk Manager click on that a tutorial video will start there are 2 choices writing to a disk & printing or reading a disk & saving. Click on writing to a disk & printing 1st when that starts click on the choices they give you highlighted with a red square to take you to the different steps that it will show you how to do that, or click on the arrow on the right of that and it will take you though the steps.Now this video is showing you to take your designs from the files that are located in your customizing system's sample stitch file folder that are located there, but since you are taking these files off of your CD you would go to your CD drive where they are located and select them from there. They are also showing you how to use the camera view button so you can see what you are selecting rather than the open button where you would just see the file names. Once you click on a design it shows up in a box in your disk manager. I myself like the camera view so I can see what I'm choosing.They are also showing how to add just 6 designs at a time because there are actually 4 menus you can add to in case you want to separate them into different sections. If not you can just keep adding your designs in the first menu until you can't add any more and then it will tell you disk full. Then it will show you how to get these designs onto your floppy disk by clicking on the button at the top that says write to disk and a menu will pop-up saying all designs will be deleted from disk! That just means any designs that maybe you have added to your disk for the machine format will be deleted not regular design formats (hus., pes.,ext.) Once you click on that it will show a bar at the bottom of the screen showing that it is writing to the disk once it hits 100% the bar will disappear and you disk is ready to put into your machine and you will be able to read your disk and sew your designs.
I know this sounds like a lot of info to take in and there are different ways to get your designs into your disk manager program faster but since you are new it would be too over whelming. But the disk manager is where you need to load your designs in order to be able to turn them into your sewing machines format ,and to a disk to sew them. If you've gone thru this process and still have problems or questions please contact me at my email Don't waste your money on buying already formated disks since you pretty much have all you need to do so. I hope this helped. Give me a shout back and let me know how it goes.I've been a Designer 1 owner now for about 16 years as well as the Professional Software. Just Love it!

Embroidery disk 100 (all 4) machine says there is a disk error and cannot start. need book of 100 full size patterns to go with disks

I doubt you will be able to locate a copy of the book of designs, but maybe if you joined one of the Yahoo Designer 1 groups you may be able to contact someone willing to part with theirs. (Membership of these groups is free.) However, having the book will not solve your problem with the design disks. It sounds like there is a problem with your D1's internal disk drive. There is no quick fix for this unfortunately and you will need to visit a machine technician for a diagnosis and repair. If you know anyone else with a D1, test the disks in their machine. You could also take the disks in when you go to the technician and ask him to check them in his computer or on another D1 before he works on your machine, just in case it is the disks that have gone bad - although it seems unlikely that all four would become unusable at once.

My D1 still runs designs from a floppy. I have the 4D software. What computer extension do I need to save my designs to, in order for the sewing machine to be able to stitch them. So far I'm having no luck...

Your Designer 1 will read none of the file formats you listed. It uses .shv which is a special file type created just for the Designer 1. Some embroidery sellers offer this format, but most do not. You don't need the .shv if you have the 4D software. When you purchase designs, you can buy almost any format you want and your software will deal with it. Most Husqvarna Designer owners purchase designs in .vp3 or .pes format. Avoid .art designs.

You need to set up your software using the Configure module. You can access this either by locating your 4D software folder on your hard drive - in that folder there should be an .exe called Configure - or use a link in your normal 4D screen once you open the program. Look for the icon along the top that looks like a screwdriver and pliers (or something like that). In Configure use the Send 1 tab to tell your software that you have a floppy disk Designer 1.

When you want to load designs for your sewing machine, open 4D Disk Manager (it will be in the drop-down Accessories box using the arrow beside the Configure button). You need to have the correctly formatted floppy disk in your computer's floppy disk drive. If you don't have one, you can format a blank one from within the Disk Manager module. Most importantly if you are using a floppy that already has been used in your Designer 1, you need to use the Read Disk icon along the top. The designs already on your floppy are read into the program. You can then add whatever designs you want by using the Open (icon showing an open manilla folder) or View (looks like a blue camera) buttons. Then you choose the Write Disk button to put not only your newly added designs on the floppy disk, but to also put back the ones that were already on it. Click "Yes" when asked if you want to erase designs already on the disk. It is quite safe provided you read the disk into Disk Manager first, as described above.

Viking D1 error message file not found

You need to use either Organizer or Disk Manager to put designs on the floppy disk. Both of these are Husqvarna programs, not part of your computers operating system. If you copy shv file directly, the machine does not have all of the information that it needs to read the files. If the folder containing your original shv files that you purchased contains additional files, you just need to copy EVERY file within that folder to the floppy disk and it might work. Don't attempt to move individual files to the floppy. You will need them all.

Downloading designs from the internet

Disk Manager is part of Customizing software, in case you were wondering if you needed to buy more software. Ask again if you are having trouble locating it. You also need to format your floppy disk in Disk Manager before writing your designs to it.
