Husqvarna bobbin thread jamming

I have a Husqvarna Quilt Design 2 and the bobbin thread won't sew properly. The thread bunches underneath. It is like there is no tension on the thread. Working fine one minute and it just jammed up underneath.

Make sure the bobbin thread "clicks" into the tension slot. However, thread nests underneath are usually caused by the top thread, not the bobbin. Make sure your thread is seating itself in the top tension disks. To do this, put the spool on the machine, pull off about 12 or 15 inches of thread, then hold this thread down with one finger on your right hand as you take the thread tail through the threading path with your left hand. When you get to the needle, tug the thread (still holding it down up top) to be sure it seats in the tensions disks. You must also have the presser foot UP while you do this to ensure that the tension disks are open. Watch the first thread guide after the spool as you sew to make sure the thread is not jumping out of there (a common problem with Des1 machines, fixed with SEs - no comfort to you and me!). I have put a small piece of tape across there with the end turned back on itself so no sticky bit is going to catch on the thread.

How do I change the tension husqvarna 3610


EIther the top of your machine is not threaded properly, or More than likely, your bobbin is not installed correctly.
If the attempt to sew is a mess on the back make sure your bobbin is spinning off the bobbin in the correct direction when installed into the bobbin case.

As you sew thread bunches up in bobbin compartment


Generally, you need to rethread your machine on top. You should probably take the bobbin out and see if it is wound properly. You should change the needle too.

Thread bunching up around bobbin


If you do not have a user guide, you might want to find one. Try ebay or have an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer order you one. In fact I would find your nearest authorized Husqvarnia Viking dealer and visit them with you machine. They should be able to help you and usually are very helpful even if you didn't buy the machine from them. If they determine it is correctly threaded and the bobbin is ok, have it serviced by an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer or have them send it to Husqvarna Viking (SVP) Technical Service Dept in Tennessee for service. The machine should give you years of good performance.

Use only genuine Husqvarna Viking bobbins.

To find an authorized dealer near you, check the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

Good luck.

I am having trouble with my bobbin . When I put into the sewing machine and begin to sew the cotton just bunches up and jams . Any suggestions


Hello,
Here are a couple of things to try.

* Un-thread your machine and remove your bobbin. Clean any loose thread or lint out of your
bobbin case. Re-thread your machine, reinsert and re-thread your bobbin.

* Change your bobbin
There could be a nick along the edge of your bobbin spool that’s catching your thread as you
sew.

* When you start to sew a seam, grasp the upper and bobbin thread tails. Hold them back
and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting
caught in your machine.

Hope this helps.

I have a viking Iris sewing and embroidery machine and the bobbin thread is bunching up underneath so then the thread breaks


When I had that happen, it turned out that I had not wound the bobbin thread correctly (it was not wound tight and smooth enough). Wound a new bobbin from scratch, and all worked fine.

Hello I have a Husqvarna Quilt Design sewing machine. It workes great and Ihave it maintained once a year since I've owned it (5yrs) When I went to thread a bobbin it won't engage. The machine works...


Sounds like your bobbin winder has broken down, Kate. Nothing for it but to take it in for repair I'm afraid. It happens - you didn't necessarily do anything to break it - it is just a weak spot in these machines. I think everyone who owns one has had their bobbin winder repaired once, at the very minimum! (Coming up to repair No.3 for mine - luckily mine still winds, but just won't stop when the bobbin is full so I have to manually stop the machine.)
