Question about Sewing Machines
The wire loop in the front thread guide seems to be "pinching" my thread... making it very tight and not easy to pull.
Try checking the wire loop and see if there is a burr on it an if there is try using a small file to take the burr off
or check to see if the wire loop is bent, it may have to be replaced.

This should be your machine:
Sewingmanuals.com shows that they have this downloadable in Adobe PDF format here:
#37 in the list as of me posting this. You can get a CD version too but you'll just pay more and wait longer for the same thing. Once you have it print the manual (preferably both sides to keep it small) ang you'll have it. You can also peruse eBay to see if anyone is selling a manual but I doubt that will yield regular results. The machine looks to be pretty basic and standard but it's best you have the manual to get the most out of the machine. Also be sure to check the cleaning and lubrication section and go through the process so that the machine is in top working order before you put it into regular use - saves a lot of headaches.

I need more info.
>Where is your presser fooot pressure set(1-9) it should be around 4?
>How fast are you free motioning (faster is better? from 1-10 10 being full speed.
>Is your bobbin threaded correctly (I need to cover the basics.)?
>Never never use a needle smaller than a 90/14 for free motion (I know everyone's an expert...but trust me)
After all this, it's OK to tighten your tension up on top a little when free motioning and getting eyelashes/spider webs on bottom. around 6 should do it though.

Sounds like the tension unit is at fault. First check the bobbin tension by removing the bobbin case. Use a half-full to 3/4 full bobbin. Be sure it is threaded through the bobbin case with thread hanging straight down with tension spring on top. Tie the stitch plate to the end of the thread. If the thread pulls the bobbin out, the bobbin tension is too loose. If it does not move when "jiggling" the bobbin, it is too tight (which is not likely based on your description). Small screw (through an open hole) on the side of the bobbin case adjusts the tension of the bobbin case. Left for loose and Right for tighter. Otherwise, contact local authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for their assistance. You can find the closest dealer at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us Good luck.

I suspect you are correctly threading the machine but the timing of the needle and bobbin hook is off. When the threaded needle goes into the bobbin area, a pointed hook grabs the thread and loops it with the bobbin thread. Something is catching when the needle starts to come up that is not allowing the bobbin thread to be pulled back through the needle plate opening by the upper thread. With machine threaded and bobbin in place, have the bobbin area open if possible and watch the thread interaction when the needle goes down. To set the hook/needle timing, normally covers have to be removed. Suggest taking it to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for service.

I know the answer is a little late now...
I bought the machine a month ago and find that the bobbin picture is a bit misleading... i find putting the bobbin in the case, pushing the thread down over the hook thing (like in the picture) but then cutting the thread really short and putting the plastic cover on seems to work!
it is actually vary easy once you get the hang of it!

Be sure you haven't missed a loop while threading the bobbin. If that's not it, check how well the bobbin is turning on the spindle. If it is threaded properly and you have cleaned it, I suspect you will find some damage to the bobbin that is causing it to bind on the spindle. If you have another bobbin, try it and see what happens.
Post back to let me know what you find.
