Can you turn the handwheel without a great deal of effort? If so, it sounds to me like your motor may be drawing excessive current and the machine is shutting off so as not to burn out the circuits.

SOURCE: Upper Thread Breaks!!!

Hi, here are some reasons why the thread is breaking :-)

  • Threading is not correct.
  • Thread has a knot in it.
  • Thread tension is too tight.
  • Needle is bent or blunt or has a sharp eye.
  • Needle is wrong size.
  • Needle has been inserted wrong.
  • Needle and thread does not match.
  • Starting to stitch too fast.
  • Thread take-up lever has not been threaded.

  • Hope this helps.

    SOURCE: Thread breaking.

    Rethread the machine following these directions:
    all machines thread the same. TTN tension, take up, needle.
    Beginning with the spool, guide the thread through the thread guides to the tension assembly. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
    (To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.) If it passes this test, continue up through the take up lever,then down through the thread guides to the needle. Make sure your needle is fully inserted and turned the correct way.( If you load your bobbin case from the left side,the needle rule is normally FLAT to the RIGHT is RIGHT. There are some exceptions. If you have a newer style drop in bobbin or your bobbin case loads in the front then the rule is FLAT to the BACK.
    Remove the bobbin case and bobbin. Pull on the bobbin thread to make sure it doesn't pull too hard. It should have some tension on it but not a lot. Insert the bobbin and bobbin case into the hook assembly and pull on the bobbin thread again.The tension should still be about the same. If it is tight, you need to look at the bottom of the pin that the bobbin case sits on and see if there are any threads looped around it. If there are , you need to remove them.
    Hold the top thread , turn the hand wheel and see if the thread is catching someplace around the hook assembly. If it pulls the thread up easily, put some fabric in it and see how it works.
    Make sure the thread is through the take up lever.

    SOURCE: Husqvarna Sewing Machine starts sewing when power switched on

    The problem is probably the foot control. The little wires wrapped around the insulator have broken and are shorting against each other or the cord itself has a short. You can purchase an aftermarket foot control at your local shop, this is the cheapest way to try first, if that does not correct the problem replace the cord.

    SOURCE: Sewing thick fabric and machine won't send it through

    Sergers are not really meant to sew very thick material. The blades have a maximum amount of range, or thickness that they can reach to cut. If you go outside that range, get ready for a big repair bill! You can break loopers and even the needle plate when you "push" a serger. My advise would be to use you sewing machine for the, "pounding" work. The type of material matters too, A thick Quilt like fabric can be sewn becatuse it's not dense material. A thinner harder denim could max out at 3 layers because of it"s hard finish. If the fabric you're sewing isn't dense like, you could just need new knives.

    My Huskylock 936 won't sew. I was sewing yesterday, 4 thread overlock. I finished a seam, cut the thread, proceeded to sew another seam. I put my foot on the pedal..and nothing.If I turn the machi


    Good evening madam
    It sounds like there is something wrong with the electrical system in your sewing machine. You can check the power and connections.
    good luck

    Husqvarna 3610 doesn't pick up lower thread


    Hi, Check to see if needle is bent. If the needle is bent it will not work well and soon it will break.
    Replace the needle. Also lube the moving parts on your machine. (fine oil) sold in most sewing centers.

    Out of nowhere, after working fine for weeks, the bobbin thread started breaking, and then stopped "wrapping" properly around the outside of the bobbin while I sewed. It keeps jamming to where I...


    Change needle
    Clean under needle plate where feed dogs are for lint
    Clean bobbin area for lint or loose threads
    Rethread machine top thread make sure to get every thread guide
    & bobbin is threaded correctly & inserted in the bobbin case or shuttle correctly
    Check tension 3 or 4 is usually good

    after you try all this & it keeps jamming then it may need to be serviced

    I need a sewing guide, basic , starting with threading


    Hi! You can find manuals for Husqvarna Viking sewing machines at http://sewingpartsonline.com/viking-sewing-machine-instruction-manuals.aspx. Another place to look for an instruction manual for your machine is http://www.sewconsult.com/husqvarna/husqvarna_instruction_manuals.htm. I didn't find anything about replacement instruction manuals on Husqvarna Viking's website--BUT they have a neat feature called The Sewing Room that offers how-to-sew instructions. (http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us/3368.htm)

    You can also take a look at my Hints and Tips about threading your machine.

    Let me know if this helps!

    Happy Sewing!

    Viking Designer 1 balleds / Birdnest / issues after repaired from Husk service center in midwest - replaced thread needle and adjusted tension .. freequilting and embroidery situations


    birdsnest refers to a mess of thread on the underside of fabric when you start sewing (after a few stitches all looks good). if this is the case and it is happening during embroidery, switch off jump stitch thread cutting.

    if it happens at the start of normal sewing, either hold your needle thread when you start sewing or make sure the needle thread is under the presser foot and held by the presser foot when you start sewing. this way you will have an inch or so of thread on top of your fabric which you can trim instead of a mess underneath.

    if there is a mess underneath for more than first few stitches, either your check spring in the needle tension area is set incorrectly, or your needle tension is set too loose (adjustable in sevice menu by tech only) or there is foreign matter caught in tension assembly preventing proper tension.

    Thread keeps wrapping around bobbin


    frustrating huh?  it happens!  even to us that have been sewing for 50+ years, but the solution is very simple.  Top thread tension is the culprit.  pull the spool all the way off and rethread the top, follow the threading path precisely and make sure the thread goes down into the tension discs.
    one more thing - when that happens often times the piece has to be removed from the machine by cutting those annoying loops on the bottom.  if this is the case, make sure you have removed all the thread clippings from in and around the bobbin case.  sometimes one little piece of thread will make you want to use swear words.
    good luck and happy stitching.
