Poor tension on a Viking Topaz 20

I have a Husqvarna/Viking Topaz 20 embroidery machine that is having major tension issues. I can manually adjust but I shouldn't have to be doing this every single time I use the machine. Is there a way to calibrate it?

Is the thread coming off the Thread Take Up? That will cause issues. Another thing would be to take apart the bobbin area and clean it thoroughly. If you have one of the sewing machine vacuum attachments that would be the best way to clean it. Good luck.

SOURCE: Will a Husqvarna #1 Plus embroidery unit work on a Husqvarna Rose machine?

I am sorry to inform you that Husqvarna # 1 embroidery unit does not fit onto the Rose machine. The terminals on the Rose is upright, while on the H # 1 it is flat. If you want to do embroidery on the Rose, you will have to purchase the embroidery unit.

Sad but true

Make sure that the red disk (smaller than a floppy) on the underside of your embroidery unit has been removed. Remove and discard the red disk. It is used for shipping purposes only. Joyce

SOURCE: Bobbin tension on Viking 350 Sewing Machine

Viking bobbin case tension adjustment:
When the bobbin runs out, sometimes it bends the bobbin case tension spring. Then tension is too light. Take the bobbin case out of the machine. Tie the loose bobbin thread to the Designer 1 needle plate. Insert the bobbin in the bobbin case. Here’s the tricky part set the bobbin case on the table as if it’s in the machine (Bobbin is visible and sitting horizontal to table top) threaded as if sewing and loose end tied to needle plate (that is removed from the machine). Lift the bobbin case off the table rotate it so that the flat side of the bobbin are vertical to the table and no longer horizontal. Have the bobbin case oriented so that the thread coming out of the bobbin case sprint (slot area where it is put for sewing) is at the top. Lift it high enough that the needle plate is lifted from the table. It should not release thread unless you shake it gently and then a very small amount of thread. The needle plate is the exact weight resistance your bobbin case should have on the thread.

SOURCE: viking husqvarna classica 100, thread tension

I suspect you are correctly threading the machine but the timing of the needle and bobbin hook is off. When the threaded needle goes into the bobbin area, a pointed hook grabs the thread and loops it with the bobbin thread. Something is catching when the needle starts to come up that is not allowing the bobbin thread to be pulled back through the needle plate opening by the upper thread. With machine threaded and bobbin in place, have the bobbin area open if possible and watch the thread interaction when the needle goes down. To set the hook/needle timing, normally covers have to be removed. Suggest taking it to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for service. You can find the nearest dealer by click on the "Dealer" link at http://www.husqvarnaviking.com
Good luck.

Take an example of the problem to a Viking store and talk with someone knowledgeable about embroidery. Generally, a "birds nest" under the fabric relates to improper upper thread tension but the additional variables of type of thread, type of fabric, type of backing, and needle size and type can all play a part.

Husqvarna Viking Topaz 20 owners, maintenance, and parts manual


Question. I own a Topaz 20 - 6 months old. With my old Janome, I could open it up in two places to clean out dust and lint. I can't find a way to do this with the new machine. Does this mean every time I need to have it cleaned, I have to take it into a dealer? This will add up fast. I sew a lot.

Machine will not sew correctly


The Topaz 30 is a relatively new machine and should still be under Viking's warranty if you bought it new from an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. Suggest you take it back to an authorized dealer--preferably the one where you bought it. The machines have a 5 and 20 year warranty for parts, etc. Most dealers will give you a 6 months to 1 year warranty if you bought it from them. There have been a couple of software updates released for this model. You can find more information at the husqvarna viking website. By clicking on the "Dealer's" link you can find the nearest authorized dealer. http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

My sister owns a Husqvarna Viking Iris Embroidery Machine, and the tension button is stuck, and she can't get it unstuck.


The Iris Tension unit is controlled by the computer. You can't turn the dial with your fingers. There are 2 buttons on the panel that control the tensioin knob. The graphic looks like rope (sort of) and there is a + and a - on each side of the graphic which increases or decreases the tension.

HUSQVARNA TOPAZ 20 SAYS TO ENTER CORRECT HOOP. THE CORRECT HOOP IS IN THE MACHINE.


Your embroidery unit needs to be re-calibrated. Check your user manual to determine if that's something you can do. Otherwise, you'll need to have an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer do the calibration and make sure the hoop sensor is working via the service menu. You can find authorized dealers close to you at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us Good luck.
