Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

Husqvarna bottom thread showing through the top

I have a husqvarna huskystar. The bottom thread is coming through to the top and the stitches are a little diagonal instead of being straight. It also makes a clunky noise.

I've cleaned it, oiled it, rethreaded, messed with the tension. I cannot figure out what is wrong!

Any ideas?

    Is there another way to adjust the tension? the wheel doesn't seem to be doing anything.

On the far left of the machine is the tension wheel for the bobbin. Sounds like it is way too loose. Should automatically set if you have entered the right type of fabric.

    You can manually turn the wheel, it should be very stiff and hard to do, if it is not then the drive to the bobbin tension has sepatated and unfortunately will need to be taken in for repairs. It is definately not a diy project.

Stitches loose and do not want to stick


You have not provided enough of a problem statement to get a good answer. (1) Has this machine ever worked well for you? (2) Are you sure you are using the right kind of thread (sometimes the shape of the thread base makes a difference (3) Have you experimented with different settings for thread tension using junk fabric? (4) Are you using the same thread in the bobbin as well as the top thread?

How can I repair the top thread from tangling in the bobbin stopper for the Husqvarna Viking Emerald 118?


Thread nesting in bottom usually means that top thread is either not threaded correctly or top tension dials has lint caught in it. Use canned air to blow it out. Also change needle.

Husqvarna Huskystar 207 Sewing Machine not stitching. It won't pull the bobin thread up to sew.


Be sure not to use Singer Needles. They are longer than standard needles. Don't know if this helps, but I did this once on my Huskystar 207 and that is what happened. It also damaged the bobbin thread.

I have inherited a Husqvarna 4500 from my mother. Everything was working beautifully until I ran out of cotton on the bobbin. I read the instructions and did as directed. When starting to straight sew...


This is not a solution but I am actually looking for the instructions/manual for a 4500 Husqvarna Viking sewing machine. Would appreciate any help. Thank you.

Hi, I'm trying to sew a silky fabric and the stitches on the bottom keep getting jumbled and the top thread breaks


My guess is that you have lost all of your upper tension and you may have your needle in backward.
Unthread the machine.
Raise the presser foot. Turn the handwheel until the take-up lever is at it's highest position. Set the upper tension dial/knob to 5. Remove the needle and replace it making sure that the flat side of the needle shank is to the back. Thread the machine.
With the presser foot up, the upper thread should pull through easily and then grab when the presser foot is lowered.
Test sew.
The upper tension pulls the stitches up and the lower tension pulls the stitches down. When they pull properly, the stitch is even.

My 5 year old Huskystar 216 sewing machine is


Sounds like the hook/needle timing. To check do the following:

With the power off!!
remove bobbin and bobbin case.
push needle all the way to the left.
Turn handwheel toward you watching the needle and bobbin housing hook. The point of the hook should line up right above the eye of the needle.

If not timing, clean bobbin area removing lint and thread.
Check bobbin tension, should get slight resistance when pulling thread.
Make sure using only Husqvarna Viking bobbins -- most are green but they have new colors now. All will have the Husqvarna logo on them (an H). Make sure the bobbin is unwinding in the right direction.

Remove fabric. Pull extra long bobbin thread (about 3 inches). Hold upper thread tail in left hand, turn handwheel toward you for 1 revolution. Is the bobbin thread caught by the top thread and pulled through the opening of the needle plate?

If you are still unable to get a good stitch, take to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for service or have them send to Husqvarna Viking (SVP) Technical Service Dept for repair. A list of dealers close to you can be found at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

Good luck.

I have a huskystar em10 embroidery machine which wont embroider it will run for so long then the needle will snap, its not the tension


I have the same machine and had the same problem. I was changing my needle about every 50 stitches until I realized that it was the timing. After I learned how to adjust the timing the machine has worked fine. The problem is I have to adjust the timing about every 3000 stitches. I leave the bottom off of my machine because I adjust it so often. If you contact a husqvarna dealer they will tell you that they have to send the machine off to get it adjusted and that you can't do it yourself. I didn't have time for this so I googled how to do it and figured it out.
