Question about Husqvarna Sewing Machines

Ran straight out the box

I started my Lawn mower right out of the box and started cutting. About 20 minutes into it I heard a loud clank then a sound like something snapped. I tried to re-start it but all it does is turn but doesn't fire up.

Sounds like you ran it with the choke on - best bet is to take the carburetor apart and make sure the float isn\'t suck and clean it out. Take out the spark plug and spray it with carb cleaner and dry it - wipe out the spark plug area. Reinstall the plug and carb. Give it a pull a few times let it run then adjust the throttle to the lowest setting and then back to the desired operating speed. Listen to the engine you should be able to hear the choke cut off when you adjust the throttle.

Yesterday, while machine quilting, I heard a clank. Now the feed dogs won't feed the fabric. The feed dogs seem to move back when I start sewing; it seems as if they stayed forward before...

Did you check to make sure the feed dogs weren't inadvertently dropped. Most sewists drop the feed dogs for free motion quilting or darning.

New machine, new needles, 100% cotton, yet sewing 6 consistently results in about an inch, here and there, of loose stitches. Machine is also loud, clanking-type noise.

you do not mention the name and model number of the sewing machine or serger,, you do not say if it's the loose stitches are on the top of the fabric or bottom,, try adjusting the top thread tension and see if that helps,, you might also consider taking the machine back and getting another,, remember before you sew when threading, lift the presser foot up to its highest position before threading

Clanking noise & won't sew

Are you sure you put the correct type of needle in? Normally, if you have any problem, cleaning and oiling will fix it. It sounds like you either didn't tighten the needle screw or you put the wrong type of needle in.

After lowering the feed teeth I am unable to raise them manually with the dial. They do raise with a mechanical "clank" as I begin to sew. The feed teeth are on the extreme right off the slot openings....

If you have been embroidering, the feed teeth will raise themselves next time you do regular sewing with a clunking noise - not really loud, but you can hear it. The feed teeth on my Des.1 are on the far right-hand side too so I think that this normal. So long as they are not fouling on the coverplate slots and the material is being fed properly by the feed teeth, your machine is fine.

Thead tension or space is too loose

If you have your manual for this machine, look on pages 13-16, and check the troubleshooting guide on pg 20. Both explain quite clearly in pictures and words, with suggestions on what starting tensions to use for your project, and how to fine-tune your machine for the best outcome for your fabric..

If you don't have a manual, try this: set all four tensions to four, grab some fabric scraps similar in weight to what you're trying to sew, and test. Serge about 3 inches, check the front and back. If there are not two nice straight rows of what looks like straight stitching clearly placed away from the cut edge, then raise the dial on tensions 1 and two slightly and test until you find the correct setting. BE SURE TO WRITE IT DOWN as a calibrated starting tension for your machine. If the serger track is loose on top and there are not clearly defined, uniform loops on the cut edge, where the upper looper (tension 3) and the lower looper (tension four) threads meet AT the cut edge, then you'll need to loosen tension 3 or tighten tension four, or both.

I've scanned my manual and I'm trying to upload it tonight - it clearly explains, with illustrations, just how to fix the issue. I strongly recommend any time you start a new project, save some scraps of fabric to set your tensions with. I always do this, and I get great results. Let me know if you need more info.

Pfaff 360 automatic slows and stops after only minutes of use

Pfaff 360's don't like to sit, they like to drink. . .. oil.
Set top knob "C" to 0
Right top (zig-zag knob) set to 4, lever below but on the same dial points straight down. Set stitch length to 4. Run 5 minutes medium speed.

After that lift off the top cover and spray inside with "Tri-flow", then run a hairdryer on it for 20 minutes to warm up or set near a warm lamp overnight. Run daily 5-10 minutes and exercise the right knob between 0 and 4 (zig-zag). It should come back to working with oil, time, and heat.
