First of all is the needle the correct needle for your machine. Some needles go "flat to back" while others are put in differently. Not all "Universal" needles are used in ALL machines. Please check your manual to see how to put your needle selection into the shaft.

SOURCE: I have a Husqvarna Viking quilt 870 sewing

The overload message is usuall due to a bind in the mechanical function of the machine. When the motor has an extra "load" caused by something like a tight belt or dry bearing, it "overloads" the motor and the error message is displayed. It is doubtful your problem is computer related. Either way a trip to your service tech is required. If you continue to sew with it, you do run the risk of possible damage to some other parts of your machine. The computer portion of your Husqvarna is guaranteed for 5 years and the mechanical parts carry a 20 or 25 year guarantee depending on when you purchased your machine. A copy of your bill of sale from a Husqvarna Viking dealer or a stamped warranty card is the proof of purchase needed to obtain warranty replacement of parts. Labor is only guaranteed for 1 year.

SOURCE: How do you align the needle threader on Husqvarna

You need a torx #6 screw driver to loosen the screws on the back of the threader, (I use magnifying goggles to see the threader) then put the threader in the down postion and look to see and make sure the hook of the threader goes through the eye of the needle. Holding the threader in the down positon with the hook sticking through the eye of the needle, tighten the screws on the backside of the threader, Double check it (slowly) to be sure it didn't move while you tightened the screws.

SOURCE: Husqvarna Viking Designer I breaking needles

Dls8864's suggestion was a very good suggestion - make sure the metal stitch plate is pushed all the way to the back. Also make sure that the thread is feeding freely - if it is catching on something it can cause the needle to be pulled aside and make it break. Does the design fit properly inside the hoop you are using? If the foot and/or needle strike against the side of the hoop, that will cause a breakage. Is the bobbin thread okay - not making a bird's nest underneath?

My husqvarna designer 1 keypad doesnt work


It could be the Touch Screen. If it is a Designer 1. If it is a Designer II or Quilt Designer or #1 it could be the Dcard. Recommend it be checked by an Authorized Viking Dealer. You can find the nearest dealer from the Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us Click on the link Locate a Dealer.

Iam quilting and the tension settings must be off. I have the feeds dropped and the thread from the bobbin loops on the top fabric.


You need to slow your speed and use a larger size needle - 14/90 or 100/16.

The groove on the shaft of the smaller size needle cannot properly guide the thread through the thick layers.

I have a Quilt Designer II that is not sewing properly. I am told that the "timing" is off but cannot find out how to fix it. I do not want to send it away. I have looked for a manual to get instructions...


Setting the "timing" is something that should be done only by an authorized husqvarna viking dealer. Many dealers have inhouse service technicians certified by HV. I would look for such a store in your area. You can find the nearest dealer by click on the "Dealer" link at http://www.husqvarnaviking.com
Good luck.

Help setting Viking Designer I machine for free motion quilting


I assume you are doing free motion quilting? Use the V Menu, choose the first stitch. If you are using the Q Sensor foot or the spring free motion foot, go into the Set menu, hit "More" twice then turn On for either the Q Foot or Free motion. Make sure you have Needle Down turned on (top right-hand button on the left side above the needle). You might need to loosen the top tension by one or two clicks - first screen of the Set menu, under the picture that looks like DNA. A Size 90 needle is probably best and if the quilt is difficult to move about you might like to either use the Sewing Advisor to set for Heavy fabric or lessen the upper presser foot pressure - Set menu once again, next picture after the DNA. I have never had to do this with my D1 but I know some other people have. Get back if things are not working well for you.

Free motion quilting Viking Designer 1


I had the same dissatisfaction when I switched from the 1+ to the Designer 1. After some trials I am now happy. You need the springy free motion foot. Part #413 03 76-45. You take off the white shank and screw it on with the metal bar over the needle hook. In the set menu turn the SensorQ on, the free motion on, select stitch 1 from menu V and drop the feed dogs. It also makes a big difference to use the straight stitch throat plate which just has a small hole for the needle to go through. One other hint is that I often have to reduce my needle tension 3 or 4 steps. Hope it works for you.
