Question about Husqvarna Designer I
I have a designer 1 that I purchased in 2003. I've had to have the bobbin winder replaced 3 times. Now when I wind a bobbin it won't release the bobbin and I have to pry it off with plyers. It's also been splitting the top off of my bobbins while they are winding.
Winding too tight;
Whenever your bobbin won’t come off any Viking, Designer 1 included, it’s because it wound too tight. This is how you know. It went on easy! To get it off, don’t pry, slowly unwind all thread, it will change shapes and let go of the bobbin winder. My favorite way to wind a bobbin on a Viking is to thread the machine through the needle and go under the foot then up to the bobbin winder (it has to be under the foot or it winds too tight. If it still winds too tight, lay your thread down instead of standing it up, the weight of the thread can increase tension on the winding process also check that you use a spool cap as large as or slightly larger than your spool. If it still winds tight. I’ll explain what bad thread can do.
Test your thread quality to start, thread your machine and LIFT the presser foot (this opens the tension disks). Pull your top thread straight back. If you feel no tension no mater how much thread you pull, your thread is good. If that your machine passes that test (tip: always check your thread this way when you thread your machine)

On the back of how to wind the bobbin correctly on the Designer 1 in order not to wind the bobbin to tightly.
Also make sure you wind the bobbin use a standard foot and not the S foot (for omni stitches) I found if the S foot was use I had great difficult in try to get the bobbin off the winder once it had wound on. Hope this helps somebody.
Thanks for this great site.
