Husqvarna mega quilter

I have the Husqvarna mega quilter on an Inspira frame. When I push the needle down button to pull up the bobbin thread the machine starts to run and needle keeps going, nothing turns it off. I have tried turning it off and starting it again, I have double checked that all wires are hooked up properly. Any ideas as to what else I can do? When I turned off machine last time I used it it had been working fine. Thanks Audrey

If you're sure you're using the correct needles, you should take it to a service tech to align it properly.

SOURCE: Husqvarna Vicking - The bobbin thread is knotting

Check that it is threaded correctly (both top and bottom) making sure that the upper thread is in the takeup lever. Watch the needle as you slowly turn the handwheel counter clockwise (toward you) and the needle point touches the fabric (make sure presser foot is down). Is the thread still relatively taunt? If it is loose, the upper thread tension unit does not have enough tension. Check the areas where the thread goes and make sure you remove any loose threads or fluff which could be inhibiting the tension discs from closing over the thread. If the tension unit still is not tightening enough, the tension unit may need to be replaced or the circuit board replaced. If everything is ok in the upper thread area, now look at the bobbin area. With no fabric, watch as the needle enters the bobbin area. Does it go down and the upper thread catch the bobbin thread and pulls it to the surface? Check for anything preventing the bobbin thread from being pulled up to the surface through the needle plate. If you have still not been able to resolve the problem suggest you 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: I have a husqvarna mega

have you checked to see if the needle is bent-roll on a flat surface & see if it rolls correctly
if the needle makes a popping sound when it goes thru fabric then it's blunt
check to make sure your tension is correct
check to make sure the thread is not caught on anything like
1.the spool pin
2.the notch on the thread spool
3.check to see if the thread has come off the thread take up lever
I've had this happen to me several time when sewing
let me if this helps
happy sewing

Are you using a different bobbin when you try embroidry? The machine forms the stitches the same exact way when you either sew or embroider. It's just that the hoop moves the fabric. Maybe your bobbin thread in not flowing out of your bobbin case freely. Maybe the type of stabilizer your using is the problem. Maybe your not hooping your fabric tight enough.

My nedle on my husqvarna mega quilter will only pick up the bobbin thread through one thickness of fabric and not through all three layers. Suggestions?


Try a brand new needle. A dull or bent needle will frequently not pick up bobbin thread. Also, be sure you are using a needle type that is suitable for the thread and fabric you are sewing, ie if you are sewing woven fabric, use a sharp needle, not a ball point or jersey needle.

If you are still experiencing problems, it could be a timing issue. Take it for service.

Which direction should the bobbin move when pulling the thread in the HV Mega Quilter 18x8? Clockwise or counter?


Hello
Hold the loaded bobbin case in your left hand and gently pull on the thread. The bobbin will rotate clockwise when correctly loaded.

I'm also sending a link to page 17 of the manual for fututre cross-reference.

Husqvarna mega quilter


Each machine is different. Most of the machines that are electronic have a sensor to shut it off if you place the bobbin on the winder and push the winder into its position to wind. Give it a try. Also, check your spindle at the end to pull it outwards or attempt to untighten like you do a jar. This is the old mechanical machine but it is possible this machine uses it. Next you must look on your monitor for a particular symbol that represents the bobbin. This would likely be a button to turn it off and on.

Husqvarna Mega Quilter. After using the thread cutter the bobbin thread will not pick up to continue sewing.


sometimes the cutter doesnt leave a long enough tail to start sewing, and the needle wont pick it up, use a diferent thread in bobbin, sometimes thats the issue, or manually extend the thread from the bottom and then start sewing, it will pick it up then

Thread ball up


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
