More details needed. What model machine? What does "went crazy" mean? What happens when you turn the switch off, then on again (with the embroidery arm attached)? Does the machine function normally once the embroidery arm is removed?

SOURCE: #1 Viking Embroidery #13 Set.

Use any card that has the On/Off in the bottom right og the card (1). You have to know what number is you design so you can push that number after selecting on/off. Make sure you programmed emb card is in the machine. You can use another card if you do not have the generic numbered card with on/off and the hoop positioning E on the right side of the numbers 1 to 35 designs.

SOURCE: internal flopppy problem with Designer 1 embroidery machine

Dear bjdouce,

Push the floppy drive lid inwards and do the following:

First of all, check for any visible thread or dust inside the floppy drive.

Secondly clean the drive by blowing it with compressed air.

If this does not help, it is time to upgrade your machine to USB. Great to work with. Cost: plus minus $500.00.

Good Luck

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: My sister owns a Husqvarna Viking Iris Embroidery

The Iris Tension unit is controlled by the computer. You can't turn the dial with your fingers. There are 2 buttons on the panel that control the tensioin knob. The graphic looks like rope (sort of) and there is a + and a - on each side of the graphic which increases or decreases the tension.

Why does the embroidery arm repeat the calibration process over and over?


Take it back to the dealer. There may be a glitch with the software update that was installed on your machine.

My machine does not recognize that the embroidery unit is attached. It keeps saying attach embroidery unit. Has anyone had this problem


What make and model of sewing machine do you have? I have seen this problem with a Husqvarna Viking Designer I (or similar older Viking machine). In that case, the problem was corrosion on the contacts between the embroidery unit and the sewing machine. The solution was to use an electronic contact cleaner to clean the contacts; this is one product: http://www.amazon.com/CRC-05101-QD-Electronic-Cleaner/dp/B000CCMLD0 . Make sure that the machine is unplugged. Spray the contact cleaner on the contacts. (In some cases, you should then connect the embroidery unit to the machine and remove it a few times.) Allow the product to dry before you plug in the sewing machine again.

In another case, the solution was actually easier. The owner had two similar embroidery machines. She managed to mix up which embroidery unit went with which sewing machine. Neither embroidery unit could be properly seated on the machine that she attempting to use it with. Once the embroidery unit was paired with the correct machine, both pairs worked.

I hope this helps.

I have a viking designer 1. When I put the embroidery arm on the pressed foot will not stay down. But does stay down when regular sewing arm is attached.


When embroidering, the presser foot hovers above the fabric a few millimeters. The machine does this automatically.

Why won't embroidery machine arm won't move freely


The arm belts may be in a bind. You will need to have it serviced by a Viking Service Tech. You can find a dealer near you by using the link 'Locate a Dealer' at the Husqvarna Viking Website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

Cant get rid of message


I think that you need to have an authorized Husqvarna Viking repair center look at your machine.

The only thing that I can think of that you can do is place your left hand on the embroidery arm that moves left and right. Put your thumb into the opening where the hoop holder comes out and lift the cover slightly. I have seen the cover get pushed down too far so that the sensor inside is not able to move when the hoop is removed so the machine thinks it is still there. Look at the end of this opening in the arm that is closest to your stomach to see if it looks as if the cover is pushed down too far.

Beyond that, several things could be causing this problem, only one or two being serious. Most are simple.

On 955E embroidery unit, the large black gear snapped


Welcome to FixYa. Hi - Viking has online tutorials for several of the 955E features, including embroidery. 
Here is a link to the 955E tutorials. If the link isn't active, paste it into your brower window.
 
http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us/6616_393.htm

As mentioned in the next paragraph, you can order a manual from your Viking dealer if you don't have yours. The Viking manuals aren't very expensive, and it is well worth having. You'll find detailed instructions for inserting and calibrating the embroidery arm, which happens everytime you insert the emb arm. See the Hints and Tips paragraph below.
If your machine is broken, the 955E Parts manual lists each part number in the machine, and the 955E Service Manual should provide instructions for repair. But because the 955E is not discontinued (as far as I know), the dealer might not be willing to sell you those manuals or order the parts you need. eBay often has Parts and Service manuals for sale for current model Viking machines, or you might be able to find them for sale on other web sites. Keep in mind that if your machine is still under warrantly, you risk voiding the warranty if you attempt to remove the covers and perform a "non-consumer" repair.
Some general hints and tips for inserting and removeing your embroiodery arm and navigating the Viking web site: 
  • Always turn your machine off when you attach or remove your embroidery arm or when you insert or remove an embroidery design card.
  • When you insert your embroidery arm, insert an embroidery design card. When you turn your machine back on, you should see a message on the info screen that says something like "embroidery arm will move". Press OK, and the embroidery arm will calibrate. 
  • After the embroidery arm has calibrated, place your hoop on the embroidery arm. 
  • Look at each end of your embroidery arm - you will find a connector that must slip into a corresponding connector on the embroidery machine. This connector slides into a corresponding connector on the machine. The connector on the machine has a cover that slides open and closed. If it is closed, it you might not spot it right away. You must open this slot when you attach the embroidery arm - slide the embroidery arm straight back (not at an angle), so the embroidery arm connects to the machine securely. Although you might need to nudge the embroidery arm in place, do not force it!

Trouble with Viking 955E Embroidery Unit and Control Panel


Welcome to FixYa. Hi - Viking has online tutorials for several of the 955E features, including embroidery.
Here is a link to the 955E tutorials:
http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us/6616_393.htm

Some general hints and tips: 
  • Always turn your machine off when you attach or remove your embroidery arm or when you  insert or remove an embroidery design card.
  • When you insert your embroidery arm, insert an embroidery design card. When you turn your machine back on, you should see a message on the info screen that says something like "embroidery arm will move". Press OK, and the embroidery arm will calibrate. 
  • After the embroidery arm has calibrated, place your hoop on the embroidery arm.

Although you might need to nudge the embroidery arm in place, do not force it! 
The Viking site also has projects for the 955E that will help you learn to use some of the features - you can probably sew most or all of the free projects on the site, but projects for the 955E incorporate features on your machine that might be available on others. And look for the free designs!
Hope this helps get you started.  If you and other readers have a minute to rate this information (good or bad, or indifferent), your rating will help me determine if I understood your question and if my answer is helpful.
A few more recommendations...You can order a manual for your machine from any Viking dealer and probably online, and I recommend that you do. Your machine has some very cool sewing and embroidery features. I sold Vikings, so I can answer specific questions about many individual features, but Viking manuals are not expensive and can help you save time and avoid irritating problems.

If you have more questions, please comment and I will do my best to help you further. I am pleased to answer general questions about embroidery, if you want hints and tips or run into problems.

Cheers, Ginny
