SOURCE: Thread tangles around shuttle

are u talking about 3-4 uses from being a new machine or is this a machine you aquired,,,,alot of times the machine can be off timing, if this is not the case always try fully unthreading and rethreading and please use rayon or polyester thread, plus make sure you have the bobbin case in correctly

SOURCE: thread tangled and bunched up on one side when

If you machine is looping on the bottom of the fabric try the following.
1. Remove the thread from the top of the machine and retrhead it. Also make sure the presser foot is in the up position when you thread the top because the tension discs separate when the foot is up, so the thread can get deep into the tension unit where it belongs.

2. Replace the needle. They can be bent and still look straight, which can cause a whole bunch of problems.

3. Take out the bobbin and inspect the edges of the bobbin. Make sure it's smooth. When replacing it back into the machine, make sure to thread the tensioin area of the case correctly. You should hear a small "click" when you drag the thread into the metal guide. You enter the guide in the 6 O'clock position and pull the thread to the 7 O'clock position. You should alway see the thread laying across the top of the bobbin through the clear bobbin cover when it's threaded properly. (After you've taken a few stitches on a sample fabric, look through the cover, that's when you can see the thread laying across the bobbin.)
4. Make sure your tension is between 4 and 5.
5. When the bobbin thread is pulled up through the needle plate, you can pull it gently towards the back of the machine to feel how much tension is on the thread and to see if the bobbin rotates freely in the case. If while a bobbin is being wound, the thread has any difficulty being delivered to the bobbin, it can cause the bobbin's shape to distort. It then will have trouble spinning in the bobbin case correctly which will make a very ugly stitch. If you've ever had trouble getting a bobbin off the spindle, the thread delivery was compromised and it was being delivered to the bobbin with too much tension on it and it basically crushed the center post of the bobbin onto the winder making removeal difficult. Sometimes the only way to remove the bobbin from the spindle if that happens, is to take the thread off the bobbin and start again.

My Husqvarna started having problems with the bobbin. The thread from the bobbin side is a tangled mess when I stitch. The top looks fine, but the seam falls apart easily and the backside is all tangled. I cleaned underneath the bobbin holder but it didn't help.

Usually it is your top threading or your needle needs to be changed. Rethread paying close attention that the thread is in the tension discs right. Try with presser foot up, pull thread, it should pull smoothly, now put the presser foot down, it should barely move. This usually seats the thread in the tension discs.

Having trouble with tension on my Husqvarna Viking E 20

Be sure to RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread. (Remove the upper thread and rethread from the beginning.) Upper thread malfunctions commonly occur if it is not threaded correctly or the thread is not seated in the tension disk properly.

Install a brand new needle if you haven't already done so.

try a different bobbin
make sure that the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case

How do I tighten the lower thread on my 5710 Husqvarna please?

you need to change the needle to a ball point,, but check your
manual to see what needle it recommends
if you don't have a manual let me know & I'll check to see if I can
find one for you
adjust the top thread tension--if the bobbin thread is loose, then
tighten the top thread tension one number or letter at a time higher,
if the bobbin thread is tight,, loosen the top tension one number or
letter less..
take the bobbin out & reput it back into the bobbin case--make sure it's
turned the right way

My machine is a designer 2 but I encounterd a problem with my stich getting all tangled. tryed to clean the bobbin case and under, stich is still tangling bad.

Be absolutely sure that the machine is threaded correctly, with the upper thread clicked into the tension discs (the presser foot MUST be raised when you thread so the tensions discs are open to receive the thread) and bobbin thread clicked into the bobbin tension slot. Change the needle - a bent or blunt needle can cause tangles. Hold onto the thread tails for two or three stitches when you first start sewing to avoid them being drawn down under the fabric and making a mess.

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 -

good luck.

Thread breaks


Check to see if the lower thread be tangled. Also, the bobbin could be threaded improperly in the shuttle hook. Rethread the bobbin in the shuttle hook.
How to detangle a thread---

  • When a machine stops operation due to tangled thread, do not turn the pulley by force.
    If the pulley is turned by force then, lower thread might not be picked up correctly and stitches might not be formed correctly.

  • If threads get tangled, remove a needle plate and cut the tangled threads by scissors or cutter.
  • Do rate the solution if you find it helpful & useful.
