Question about Husqvarna Viking 1
I have an older Husqvarna Viking 990 sewing machine. The last time I was using it, I struck a safety pin that was underneath the project that I had fogotten to take out. The sewing machine needle was bent. I replaced the needle and now the tension is off. No matter what I try, the thread bunches up on the bottom of what I'm sewing. I've tried several new needles, cleaned out the bobbin case, taken the needle plate off and cleaned in there, used several different types of thread, new bobbins, etc. I don't think the timing is off because when I manually turn the wheel, I can see the upper thread take up the lower thread. Can you help??
Try setting the bobbin tension correctly. This is important as it affects everything else:
The try sewing and see if the stitches lock properly. Adjust the top tension as needed.

Did you bend the throat plate? I have done that and it was a nightmare. I took it off and gently hit it from the backside with a towel over it to bend it back the way it was. It worked fine.
