Often a drop of oil on the shaft in the center of the hook will solve the noise. There is a special gauge to measure the clearance between the hook and the hook cover (also called the shuttle). Try the oil first.

SOURCE: Bobbin Case Assembly

Careful now, don't get in too big of a hurry.
The back side of the hook cover, which holds the hook in place in this machine is supposed to have several grooves in it. If there are no cracks, it's probably ok. The hook should also have a considerable amount of movement, or clearance when the cover is in place. Take that away and it won't sew at all.
The most common noise I hear in these machines is a buzzing or moaning sound from the bobbin area. If this could be an apt description of your sound, remove the bobbin case, roll a cotton swab between your fingers until it will fit inside the center post of the bobbin case and clean it out with alcohol. Allow it to dry completely and then put one drop of machine oil inside this post, place it in the machine and run it. The sound should be gone.

SOURCE: The bobbin thread on my Viking Designer 1 is too tight

In most cases, this is caused by loose threads and fluff being in the upper tension unit rather than a problem with the bobbin. There is a screw on the bobbin case that losens and tightens the resistence. However, it can easily come out and then you have a mess.

Try this to check the bobbin thread tension -
Take the bobbin case holder out of the machine. Use a bobbin that is about half full and use standard 50 wt sewing thread.
Take your needle plate (the metal plate over the feed dogs that has markings showing stitch width under the presser foot).
Thread the bobbin thread in the bobbin case, holding the case so that the thread is through the tension spring as though it is in the machine, tied the end of the tread to the needle plate and have it hang below the the bobbin case.
If the needle plate immediately drops to the floor, unwinding the bobbin, the bobbin tension is too loose. If you jiggle the bobbin case slightly up and down and the needle plate moves slightly down, it is just right. If it does not move at all it is too tight. The resistence should be 14g which is the weight of the needle plate.

The upper tension unit, look straight down from the tension unit and you should see some metal disks which the upper thread rides through when threaded. Take your small cleaning brush and brush out any loose threads/fluff there. Look down the left side of the tension unit to make sure there is none hiding.

When you tighten the upper tension unit by pushing the tension buttons on the screen, do you hear the tension disks tightening? If not, it may be the pc board or the tension unit itself that will have to be replaced.

Otherwise, you might want to take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

Good luck

SOURCE: Bernina 180 Bobbin Case Housing Loose

The housing you are pointing out is the rotary hook asm. This is suppose to have a little clearance there, the clearance allows for the lower thread to come up. In order to make the machine run smoother in that area, is to put a drop of the benina only oil

Thread balls up underneath my feed dog when straight sewing. Why?????


Could be needle/hook timing. With machine off do the following to check timing -

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 and thread cutter 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 counter clockwise when going through the bobbin case.
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 sew without thread balling up, 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.

Can't put a bobbin on the winder Husqvana Viking 6020


Is this a Designer 1 or a #1? There is no moving lever on the pin of a Deigner 1,they are fixed. If it's a #1, use sewing machine oil or Triflow. NEVER use 3 in 1 oil. It will gum up and cause problems later on.

Husqvarna viking, interlude 435...unable to solve tension problem


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.

Bobbin thread is catching on bobbin case


Could be a few things: 1) the tiny screws that adjust the thread tension may have loosened, or even tightened. 2) the bobbinnitself is not wound well. Place the bobbin in the case, and gentlpull on the thread, if it is too loose, it will cascade out quickly. if too tight, it will give resistance when you tug on it. he little screws on the case will either tighten or loosen the thread tension on the bobbin. Make sure that when you re-engage the case, the bobbin fits al the way into the machine. You should here a little "snap" when it fits all the way in. Also, check to see if the bobbin has too uch thread, making ithard to put all the way in the case.

Designer 1 Embroidery Bobbin problem


Designer 1 bobbin case tension adjustment:
When the bobbin runs out, sometimes it bends the bobbin case tension spring. Then tension is too light. Take the bobbin case out of the machine. Tie the loose bobbin thread to the Designer 1 needle plate. Insert the bobbin in the bobbin case. Here’s the tricky part set the bobbin case on the table as if it’s in the machine (Bobbin is visible and sitting horizontal to table top) threaded as if sewing and loose end tied to needle plate (that is removed from the machine). Lift the bobbin case off the table rotate it so that the flat side of the bobbin are vertical to the table and no longer horizontal. Have the bobbin case oriented so that the thread coming out of the bobbin case sprint (slot area where it is put for sewing) is at the top. Lift it high enough that the needle plate is lifted from the table. It should not release thread unless you shake it gently and then a very small amount of thread. The needle plate is the exact weight resistance your bobbin case should have on the thread.

Can't bring up the bobbin thread


Sounds like hook/needle timing is off. Check it by doing the following with the power off:
remove bobbin, bobbin case, and needle plate.
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.
Make sure the bobbin is unwinding in the correct 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 sew, 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
