    Need help, I am sewing draperies and just went up to a size 3.5 needle because I kept breaking the 3's. Now I can not get my machine to sew right. It sounds funny and the tread keeps breaking? Do I need to have it is brand new!

    I just purchased this machine and don't know how to operate it.Does it have a bobbin? because it gets caught in the fabric right away! I also find it impossible to thread the needle the only way to thread it is when I remove the needle and then thread it and then put it back.Please help me

No this machine does not use a bobbin. I just purchased one too and called the supplier to help me keep mine threaded. He said they do not take much tension at all. So check your tension and then when threading it, make sure your thread goes under the bar in the center of the tension disk, not on top of.
Good luck, once you get it going it does a beautiful job!!!! Love it, Love it!

Tacsew T500. I have good stitches then open stitches. I've tried tightening the tension and also decreasing the tension. Nothing seems to work. HELP!!

Sounds like you may have burrs on the throat of the needle plate. These are caused by the needle striking the sides of the opening, either from pulling the fabric or the fabric not feeding freely and are frequently, though not always, associated with a broken needle. Any time you hear a "chunk" while sewing, your needle has hit the plate and probably left a burr. These burrs put drag on the fabric or on the thread and cause the issue you described.

Needle come unthreaded

try changing the needle--it's possible that something is wrong
with the tip of the needle
check on the needle plate for burrs--if you find any gently use a file
to remove them--but not enough to damage the needle plate
also check in the bobbin area for burrs

Bought for a child, ls2000 the needle unthread

Make sure the needle is installed correctly. With most sewing machines, this would be with the flat side of the needle shaft facing the back of the machine.

If this is indeed a Viking machine you might want to 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 -
Good luck.
