The foot should come up slightly above the fabric when in embroidery mode. If not, the fabric could not move.
The foot should come up the same distance that it would if you were to put the foot in the pivot position while sewing. If it is coming up more than that, then you have a problem and will need to see and authorized technician.

I have a Viking designer ruby machine. I am trying to embroider a name. I have the right hoop and the design fits the hoop and I keep getting an error message.


Sometimes machines will not work because even though the hoop appears large enough, there is not enough leeway for the presser foot to maneuver inside the hoop. This is a common issue with embroidery machines. The probably answer is to either shrink the design or use a larger hoop.

I have a viking designer 1. When I put the embroidery arm on the pressed foot will not stay down. But does stay down when regular sewing arm is attached.


When embroidering, the presser foot hovers above the fabric a few millimeters. The machine does this automatically.

Birds nests embroidering husqvarna viking designer se


it would be a good idea to have the machine serviced
Try these suggestions for bird nesting
1. Change the needle--use a needle that's for the fabric being sewed
2. Rethread the machine--top --make sure to use every thread guide
3. try a different bobbin--make sure bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case
& make sure the bobbin is turned the correct way in the bobbin case
4. make sure the thread has not come off the thread take up lever
5. Clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or threads
6. Check to make sure the bobbin is not warped or damaged
7. Make sure the bobbin case is correctly in the machine,, if it's a top loading bobbin you may need to have the bobbin case checked to see if it's damaged or see if the hook and hook race has a problem
8. Also could be a timing problem, and the machine would need to be checked.

Husqvarna Designer 1 noise and thread breaking issue.


I would be willing to bet that there is a piece of thread wound around one of those pieces below the bobbin area. Get your magnifying glass out and have it a good long look. When you find thread... use tweezers to pull it out.

I have a designer 1 that won't release the bobbin.


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)

Viking Designer 2 service mode


Hold down the start/stop button and the presser foot pivot button at the same time and turn the power on. You may need to try it a few times.
Hope that helps.

I am trying to embroider something for the first time on my viking #1 husqvarna. Do I need presser foot Q/ or R/ .If it's R,I can't find it-what does it look like? I need someone to walk me thru the steps...


embroider on #1+:
If it's a #1+ I recommend the Q (the spring works better) it's hard to put on, but worth it.
Here we go:
1>Turn off machine (always when installing or removing embroidery unit)
2>Install Q Foot. Always leave presser foot pressure (on left end of machine) at 6 for presser foot Q
3>Insert Embroidery Card
4>Insert Embroidery cassette (matching #’s with card)
5>turn on machine
6>Turn on embroidery unit (on cassette)
7>Select design
7>Thread for color 1
8>press reverse to start the machine embroidering....weeeeeeeee!

Viking Designer 1 won't embroider


I have seen some of the older style machines that are very susceptible to static charge. Usually this doesn't happen with newer ones. If you get static shocks on door knobs in your house, do not touch the screen of your machine with your finger. Use a stylus instead. You may also try touching the metal presser bar just above the foot and ankle when sitting down at the machine prior to using the screen. This should not be happening with a new machine. Check with your dealer.

Designer 1


This doesn't sound like something that you can do yourself. Find your nearest authorized repair center and have it checked out.
