Question about Husqvarna Sewing Machines
The thread cutter will not retract and makes it impossible to use the embroidery feature of the machine. Does anyone have a solution ....I am frustrated
A work around would be to remove the thread cutter mechanism completely. You can manually cut the top thread when spool changes are reqiired and would only have to deal with the bobbin thread when the hoop is removed. Moreover, I suspect when the cutter mechanism is removed the source of the problem will reveal itself. Depends on how skilled you are whether you tackle this yourself or take it to a sewing machine repair person. I suggest the latter.

Suggest you contact an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. They can order you a user manual. Authorized dealers can be found at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us
Brief description of probably how to thread from looking at a picture of a Classica 90 machine which should be similar -
Thread sits on spindle on backside. Pull thread straight across to upper left backside and fit in the metal guide. It should pull easily with only a little resistance. Pull thread forward across top toward you. Let thread fall between the metal disks (doesn't matter which one if more than one) and pull thread straight down. Pull thread slightly to the left to fit under a hook of some type and back up to fit through the large hook that moves up and down when the handwheel is turned. Come straight back down to needle and thread through eye of the needle. Just above the needle should be a thread guide (sideways hooking looking metal piece), slip the thread through it to hold thread close to needle. Hope this helps. Otherwise a local authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer will be glad to help you. Good luck.

Three things to check:
1.You need to use a needle specifically made for metallic thread. I believe the eye of the needle is square and the thread will pass through it easier, and will not be shredded which can be a cause of breaking.
2. Be sure to check your tension to make sure it is not too tight on the top. Test your stitches, checking both top and bottom tension.
3. The thread should come off the spool straight, not twisting. The thread cone should be standing up straight and the spool should twirl to release the thread. If the spool is not moving and the thread unwinds from the stationary spool, then the thread is twisting and that can cause the breakage as well.

If the cutter is not moving when the cutter motor runs, there is probably a gear loose in the cutter mechanism. Take the machine to the dealer that you purchased it from, or the nearest authorized dealer. http://webservices.us.vsmgroup.com/DealerLocator.aspx?Brand=Viking
Make sure that you have your warranty card and purchase receipt. If a gear has broken, the mechanism is warrantied to the original owner for 20 years.
If you are the second owner, or the machine was purchased online instead of through an authorized dealer, an authorized dealer will give you an estimate for parts and labor and repair the problem for you.
