Not being notified when the bottom bobbin thread is running out

I have a husqvarna quilt designer II. It wont beep when the bottom bobbin thread is running out and it seems to be slow to let me know when the thread breaks. I have had it serviced and the repair man wasnt sure what the problem was. He thought maybe the sensor. He didnt have one in stock to try it. Any ideas? He tried some adjustments and a new bobbin case.

There is a light sensor that "shines" through the bobbin and lets the computer know when your low on thread. If you were looking straight down on the bobbin it's beam runs from the 10 O'clock positoin to the 5 O'clock positoin straight through the bobbin. Sometimes lint gets in the way of the sensor on the left side.(the 10 O'clock side) Take out your bobbin case, turn the handwheel until the opening on the spinning thread hook in the machine exposes the 10 O'clock positoin and using a can of air or a compressor, blast that area to knock the lint out of the sensor. The sensor is located below the gray plastic housing to the left of your bobbin area. You won't be able to see it but you can see a slightly raised area in the plastic that covers it if you inspect the area. You have to tilt the machine back and look under the gray bed to see the "updent" in the plastic. Blow out that area for your best chance. Other than that It could be a number of adjustments and even a bad sensor. Good Luck

Remove thread message in husqvarna viking sapphire 870 quilt


I had this same problem, on my Designer Diamond. I blew it out with an air can and that didn't work, but then I decided to turn it off, then back on and start sewing a line in reverse. That seemed to fix it. My machine is working fine now.

My Husqvarna Designer I has an upper thread tension problem... the thread gets "caught" right at the beginning point of the threading process and the machine comes to a dead stop. There's major bobbin...


My guess is that it is the thread spooling off the reel that is the problem. Some of those specialty quilting cottons come on reels with plastic ends that have rough spots particularly knicks where you are supposed to "park" the thread end when you are done sewing. Run your fingers around the rim at each end of the reel and choose the smoother one to be the one closest to the threading mechanism. If neither end is suitable, flip the spool holder upwards so it is standing at a right angle to the machine, make sure the large spool holder is on then put the thread on - you won't need the smaller spool holder on top. Let the thread feed off from the right-hand side i.e. "under" the thread spool, across to the tension disks etc. Also be sure that the thread is not jumping out of that first thread tension slot.

As Iam quilting with my macine the top stitches are ok, but back of quilt the thread is all boggled up-Tension ??


yes, this is a tension issue. Check your bobbin area. Make sure you have put the bobbin in the case with the H logo up and the thread pulls off the spool in a counter clockwise motion. Make sure the bobbin is sitting in the case and threaded through the "catch" on the bobbin case. Then leave a long piece of thread from the bottom, holding the end of the top thread, lower the needle for one revolution using the handwheel. Does the top thread catch the bobbin thread and pull it to the top? This is done without fabric. Your checking to determine if the top thread catches the bobbin thread and pulls it to the top. IIf it does not, it is most likely hook/needle timing. f it does, gently pull on the bobbin thread and determine if it pulls through with a little resistence (checking bobbin tension). Make sure you are using correct needle -- Schmitz or Inspira needles are recommended (Universal size 80 is standard). Make sure you are using Husqvarna Viking made for your machine -- original ones were green but there are some new colored ones but all have the Husqvarna logo on them. Otherwise take it to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. You can find your closest dealer at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us Good luck

No tension on bobbin thread


You might remove the bobbin assembly looking for a broken tension spring (maybe a piece of it lying in the bottom the bobbin case.

Husqvarna bobbin thread jamming


Make sure the bobbin thread "clicks" into the tension slot. However, thread nests underneath are usually caused by the top thread, not the bobbin. Make sure your thread is seating itself in the top tension disks. To do this, put the spool on the machine, pull off about 12 or 15 inches of thread, then hold this thread down with one finger on your right hand as you take the thread tail through the threading path with your left hand. When you get to the needle, tug the thread (still holding it down up top) to be sure it seats in the tensions disks. You must also have the presser foot UP while you do this to ensure that the tension disks are open. Watch the first thread guide after the spool as you sew to make sure the thread is not jumping out of there (a common problem with Des1 machines, fixed with SEs - no comfort to you and me!). I have put a small piece of tape across there with the end turned back on itself so no sticky bit is going to catch on the thread.

Hello I have a Husqvarna Quilt Design sewing machine. It workes great and Ihave it maintained once a year since I've owned it (5yrs) When I went to thread a bobbin it won't engage. The machine works...


Sounds like your bobbin winder has broken down, Kate. Nothing for it but to take it in for repair I'm afraid. It happens - you didn't necessarily do anything to break it - it is just a weak spot in these machines. I think everyone who owns one has had their bobbin winder repaired once, at the very minimum! (Coming up to repair No.3 for mine - luckily mine still winds, but just won't stop when the bobbin is full so I have to manually stop the machine.)
