Question about Husqvarna Designer I

1 Answer

I have a husqvarna Designer SE. After embroidering for a while the thread gets jammed in the bobbin area and makes a big clumped up mess. What's causing this? All I can do is squeeze my scissors under the embroidery hoop and cut the mess of threads because at that point everything is jammed.

Most likely the thread is riding up and out of the tension disks. Look for the small, round opening in the pre-tensioner. It is the metal piece to the left of the horizontal spool pin. If the thread is on the horz spool pin, it will travel in the rounded opening. If the thread is fed in higher up, it can ride up higher in the pre-tensioner, causing it to not be pinched by the pretension spring and it may ride up and over the top of the tension disks. If this is a possibility, rotate the horizontal spool pin out toward you. Place a spool cap on it and feed the thread around it on the right side and below so the thread feeds into the pre-tensioner horizontally and I think that your problem will go away.
The only reason for this to happen is that you are loosing the upper tension for some reason so if my suggestion doesn't work continue to look at the upper tension assembly and the takeup lever.

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.

My Viking Designer SE Bobbin does not stop winding


I have a Designer Topaz, very similar to yours. There is a small eccentric-shaped piece that rides the thread as the bobbin is filling. On my machine, it can be turned via the little star shaped "torx" depression. This determines the point at which the drive disengages the winding process. In the alternative, when the bobbin is as full as you want it, just push the rider away from the bobbin; the same effect is achieved.

Husqvarna Viking Designer 1 keeps breaking needles


The threading may be out of the channels. Rethread. Put in a fresh needle. Make sure you are using an embroidery needle and a new one for each new project. You can't use YLI bobbin thread. It stinks. If all this doesn't help, take it in to be checked These work great when there is not thread stuck in the bobbin case and it is threaded properly. If all is well, it will go like gangbusters.

PR600 does not pick up bobbin.


needle/hook timing is off. Best to take it to authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for service or have them send it to Husqvarna Viking (SVP) Technical Service Dept for repair. A list of authorized dealers is available on the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

good luck.

Satin Stitch Problems - Designer SE (similar to the Designer 1)


It sounds like to me you might have some thread stuck in the tension assembly. Possibly some thread "snubs". Also there is an internal service program on this machine that could also solve that problem. That is why you need to take it to a qualified Husqvarna service center to be fixed by a qualified technician.
