SOURCE: Needle stop up/down no longer works on Viking 118

sometimes the bobbin winder gets left closed, and that will make the machine run slowly and with no up/down button.

15000 Needle treader is a joke,does not work.I have had nothing but headaches with it from day one. I have had the machine for three years. Love everything else about the 15000!


Some needle threaders are not designed very well. Since I've had a machine without a threader for so many years, it does not irritate me so much to manually thread--although the threader is nice when there is one that works! To help with threading the needle, it helps if I lick my finger and swipe it across the back of the needle eye. The moisture attracts the thread into the eye, making it easier to thread. (Works on hand sewing needles too!) Another thing is to place the tip of thread above the needle eye where there is a groove in the needle, then push the thread down the groove and it should go right into the eye.

Not to familiar with the industrial machines. However, even with domestic models. the position of the 'needle' bar at the time you remove your fabric, does make a difference as to weather it pulls our smoothly or, you are going to get that "extra" loop. Needle should be half way up or all the way. maybe this might help

My needle hit one of the pins holding the fabric together. Usually it snaps the needle in half and I just replace it. This time, it jammed down inside the bobbin housing and I couldn't lift the needle up...


Remove the faceplate, bobbin and case. See if you can see the bottom part of the needle. Use a flashlight to look down in the bobbin area. Put a magnet on a pair of long tweezers to magnify it. You can then gently move the tweezers around to grab hold of the broken needle.

Elna SU buttonhole- I can't remember the order to set the dials for the automatic button hole function. Anyone know? Thanks


sure, put on the buttonhole foot after putting a button into it and using the screw knob to set the length you want.
Turn stitch length knob and stitch width knobs to zero, (always set them to zero first to avoid wear on the stitch selection mechanisim) then turn the left stitch selector knob to the blue button hole symbol. Now turn middle knob stitch width, to the blue buttonhole symbol. Now turn right knob stitch length to blue 1, sew down the first side of your buttonhole until foot slide in the buttonhole foot reaches end stop. raise needle and turn stitch length to blue 2, and sew three bar tacks across buttonhole. Again, raise needle and then turn stitch length to blue 3 and sew back down otherside of buttonhole until you reach the end stop. Needle up, turn length know to blue 4 and sew three bartacks to end. there is a last blue symbol dot on stitch length knob, this will sew a stitch in place to tie off the ends. Raise pressure foot, remove your work and draw top threads to underside with a needle, and tie off or use a dot of fray stop. Done! if you don't have a manual you could email me and I'll send you a copy of mine, tallygirl98 at yahoo dot com.

The needle threader is stuck down on my Emerald 116


Typically the threading device moves downward and then rotates sideways. Which function is stuck? Is the shaft bent? In any case, the threader apparatus is removable. If you need help disassembling, get a service manual for that model (probably about $20 on the internet).

I have an Emerald 203 When I hit the presser foot, the wheel goes round and needle moves up and down but the material does nt move


it sounds like the feed dogs are not working, if you have a manual
check and see if there is a lever to move the feed dogs up and down
and see if lever will move the feed dogs, if that lever doesn't then
the feed dogs will have to be checked.
here is a link for a manual if you don't have one

I have a new (less than a year old) Husqvarna Emerald 118 sewing machine and the needle up/down feature has suddenly stopped working. Is there anything I can do or do I need to take it in to a dealer?


I suggest to take it to a dealer, something may have come loose or broken or it could be the computer part of the machine has went out, but they can tell you which one

Try the process of elimination. Take out the needle, take off the needle plate, take out the bobbin case. Run the machine. Does if run full speed? You might have to let the machine run for about 5 minutes. If it runs slow or you hear it slow down, you might have a bad connecting link between the needle bar and the main shaft counter weight. They seize up sometimes. (Shop Repair).

I have an Emerald 116 Husqvarna/Viking sewing machine and the feeder teeth have simply stopped feeding. It worked fine the last time I used it a couple of months ago and it hasn't been moved or disturbed...


HOW TO FIX YOUR FEEDER TEETH (DOG TEETH) ON EMERALD 116/118/120 IF THEY STOP WORKING....

So this is just a temporary solution to this problem... after reading through the user's guide (which really needs to be updated to have more troubleshooting suggestions), and basically taking apart various parts of the machine, I found a temporary solution.

1. Unscrew the Face Place (where the needle is attached to. #9 in User Guide Overview) There is only one screw on the side right underneath the Pressure Foot Pressure Dial (#8 in User Guide Overview). Taking off the Face Place gives you room to use a screwdriver for step 2...

2. Unscrew the Needle Plate (#12 in User Guide Overview), and take out the Bobbin holder (black). Slide the lever for the Feed Teeth to the raised position, and with your forefinger pop up the Feed Teeth (underneath the needle) to the raised position. You will here a click... and you are set to go. Reassembly your machine and get back to sewing!
