    I did that. They try to convince me that this is the way supose to be. Since that can not be the way, I gave the mashine to their shop for fixing. Wish me good luck. I think the reason is: the tension disks are not tide enough when the needle gouse its way up.

Take an example of the problem to a Viking store and talk with someone knowledgeable about embroidery. Generally, a "birds nest" under the fabric relates to improper upper thread tension but the additional variables of type of thread, type of fabric, type of backing, and needle size and type can all play a part.

    A certain amount of thread buildup will take place on the back side of the fabric when embroidering. You may be able to reduce this by increasing the upper thread tension ( which should be an available adjustment on any machine). You will know when you have increased the tension too much if the thread starts breaking or if you start seeing bobbin thread being pulled up to the top side of the fabric. One simple solution, should you continue to see this problem, is to get a soft iron-on type backing that is intended to cover over the threads on the backside for items where the thread might be irritating to the skin.

SOURCE: Will a Husqvarna #1 Plus embroidery unit work on a Husqvarna Rose machine?

I am sorry to inform you that Husqvarna # 1 embroidery unit does not fit onto the Rose machine. The terminals on the Rose is upright, while on the H # 1 it is flat. If you want to do embroidery on the Rose, you will have to purchase the embroidery unit.

Sad but true

I am not sure what you mean: motor runs but nothing else moves?

Have you have turned the machine off and tried again? Like computers, sometimes they need rebooted.

More information is needed to evaluate further.

SOURCE: Designer 1 Embroidery Bobbin problem

Designer 1 bobbin case tension adjustment:
When the bobbin runs out, sometimes it bends the bobbin case tension spring. Then tension is too light. Take the bobbin case out of the machine. Tie the loose bobbin thread to the Designer 1 needle plate. Insert the bobbin in the bobbin case. Here’s the tricky part set the bobbin case on the table as if it’s in the machine (Bobbin is visible and sitting horizontal to table top) threaded as if sewing and loose end tied to needle plate (that is removed from the machine). Lift the bobbin case off the table rotate it so that the flat side of the bobbin are vertical to the table and no longer horizontal. Have the bobbin case oriented so that the thread coming out of the bobbin case sprint (slot area where it is put for sewing) is at the top. Lift it high enough that the needle plate is lifted from the table. It should not release thread unless you shake it gently and then a very small amount of thread. The needle plate is the exact weight resistance your bobbin case should have on the thread.

Most likely the thread is riding up and out of the tension disks. Look for the small, round opening in the pre-tensioner. It is the metal piece to the left of the horizontal spool pin. If the thread is on the horz spool pin, it will travel in the rounded opening. If the thread is fed in higher up, it can ride up higher in the pre-tensioner, causing it to not be pinched by the pretension spring and it may ride up and over the top of the tension disks. If this is a possibility, rotate the horizontal spool pin out toward you. Place a spool cap on it and feed the thread around it on the right side and below so the thread feeds into the pre-tensioner horizontally and I think that your problem will go away.
The only reason for this to happen is that you are loosing the upper tension for some reason so if my suggestion doesn't work continue to look at the upper tension assembly and the takeup lever.

Having trouble with tension on my Husqvarna Viking E 20


Be sure to RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread. (Remove the upper thread and rethread from the beginning.) Upper thread malfunctions commonly occur if it is not threaded correctly or the thread is not seated in the tension disk properly.

Install a brand new needle if you haven't already done so.

Good Day, On my Designer 1, I have a problem with the embroidery. The bottom thread comes up over the fabric and I don't know how to readjust the tension. Can you help me please ? Thank you very much....


Tension should be adjusted automatically by the machine when embroidery unit is engaged. However, if there is loose threads or fluff in the upper tension unit this could cause the tension discs not to properly close. Using a small brissel brush and remove any loose threads/fluff by brushing between the discs in the upper tension unit with the presser foot in the up position. Also try these tips:

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? 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

Good luck.

When I sew with the regular portion of my Designer One, all is fine. I've been using the embroidery attachment and when I embroidery a simple design, the top looks great, but the bobbin thread is sooo taut...


The bobbin tension sounds ok if regular sewing is ok. The upper tension unit may be the culprit in that there are loose threads or fluff causing the discs not to tighten enough for embroidery. The best solution is to have it serviced by an authorized husqvarna viking dealer.

Top color thread showing on bottom of embroidery on a Bernina Deco 330 embroidery machine


Upper tension is too loose or lower tension is too tight.This might be a good thing. It depends upon how much it is pulling the thread under. A perfect tension on embroidery is about 2/3's lower thread and 1/3 upper thread showing on the bottom.

Designer 1: upper thread shredding while embroidering


I too, have the same problem withmy Designer 1. I just bought ISACORD brand polyester embroidery thread to hopefully solve this problem, but I believe it must be a tension problem. I have a "date" with the repair lady on Friday (11/22/08) and if it gets repaired I will re-post what the problem was. Still love the machine WHEN IT SEWS!!
