Bobbin problem: Huskystar by Husqvarna Viking E10 sewing machine

I am new to sewing and I just want my machine to work properly!

This problem happens about 70 percent of the time:

I can bring up the bobbin thread and all looks well. I sew a simple line and the thread gets jammed in the bobbin! When I open up the bobbin case there are threads everywhere. Then the handwheel won't turn or it's extremely tight and then won't turn. I have to get the threads out, redo the bobbin and start again. What am I doing wrong? I follow all the directions and went to the class provided, so I know how to wind the bobbin correctly. Please advise!

Thank you,
Brigitte

    This happened to me too. i tried to fix it and took apart the bobbin casing and can't put it back together!

    According to the sticker on my machine (C10), the bobbin should be threaded counter clockwise, not clockwise.

    This problem--with the bobbin thread becoming tangled, is obviously a common problem. I've had it, too and will contact Husqvarna. Perhaps it is the bobbin. I have not tried to use a Husky bobbin. I'll try that.

    If anyone knows where to get an English copy of the manual, I'd appreciate that. A link would be great. I cannot find the c10 on the husky website. Very frustrating.

This has happened to me, even though I have been sewing for 30 yrs. When I take the bobbin holder out I realise what I have done wrong. When placing a bobbin into the bobbin holder the thread must be running around the bobbin CLOCKWISE. If incorrect take bobbin out of holder turn it over, so now the thread will run clockwise.If bobbin placed in holder and thread runs anti-clockwise, when you tried to turn wheel to bring bobbin thread up, it will either not do it at all or will make a huge tangle of the threads. Happy Sewing

There is a small **** in the bobin casing that you must make sure your threead is pulled into. Try holding onto the thread from the needle with your left hand while turning the wheel with your right hand. Also, make sure that you have at least 2-3 inches of thread at the end of the bobin, so there is enough to pull up

I have the same problem. I haven't figured out how to fix it completely, but I've found things that can help. First, make sure your machine is threaded properly. When the bobbin is in the case (and threaded) when you pull the thread, the bobbin should turn counter-clockwise. When you start sewing, hold onto the threads a little behind the foot and give them a little tension. I've found when the threads are completely loose, sometimes they get pulled down into the machine. So hold onto them until you have enough stitching for them to hold their own.

I was having similar issues. Apparently they had made changes to the machine and one of the changes was the bobbin holder. I ordered a new one ($2.50) but haven't tried it out yet.

Price removed casing round bobbin and inner case to clean fluff , now I carnt seem to line up properly although all slots back the needle won't go down properly .....husqvarna Viking E10 ..man


Remove bobbin case completely and check that the needle will go down properly. If so, put the bobbin case back in lining up the black arrow on the bobbin case (on left hand side) with the metal arm that comes out slightly on the left side. Sometimes, it is tight getting the case back in place properly. Once in place, check that the case will rock back and forth slightly.
Hope this helps.

I need to know how to lower the feed dogs on my Huskystar Viking E10


There is a switch on machine to raise feed dogs up/down. Remove any extension table to locate it because many of these options are located in the back of machine & hidden by table! Jimmy :)

Husqvarna Huskystar 207 Sewing Machine not stitching. It won't pull the bobin thread up to sew.


Be sure not to use Singer Needles. They are longer than standard needles. Don't know if this helps, but I did this once on my Huskystar 207 and that is what happened. It also damaged the bobbin thread.

I have a huskystar E20, husqvarna viking sewing machine. I the bobbin winder is not engaging...any suggestions


To answer the posting of: " By cakes_bynich on Mar 20, 2011
I have a huskystar E20, husqvarna viking sewing machine. I the bobbin winder is not engaging...any suggestions" Are you using the right bobbin - class 15 and not 15J? I am having a similar problem and I believe it's because I'm using a bobbin 15J and not the 15. 15J's are just slightly less tall when lying flat next to a 15, and the edges of the 15J are slightly curved inward toward the thread whereas the 15's edge are completely straight and flat. If I hold a 15J just right on the winder, I can get it to engage sometimes. That slight size difference must be the cause. I'm off to pick up some new 15's and will test it out!

My 5 year old Huskystar 216 sewing machine is


Sounds like the hook/needle timing. To check do the following:

With the power off!!
remove bobbin and bobbin case.
push needle all the way to the left.
Turn handwheel toward you watching the needle and bobbin housing hook. The point of the hook should line up right above the eye of the needle.

If not timing, clean bobbin area removing lint and thread.
Check bobbin tension, should get slight resistance when pulling thread.
Make sure using only Husqvarna Viking bobbins -- most are green but they have new colors now. All will have the Husqvarna logo on them (an H). Make sure the bobbin is unwinding in the right direction.

Remove fabric. Pull extra long bobbin thread (about 3 inches). Hold upper thread tail in left hand, turn handwheel toward you for 1 revolution. Is the bobbin thread caught by the top thread and pulled through the opening of the needle plate?

If you are still unable to get a good stitch, take to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for service or have them send to Husqvarna Viking (SVP) Technical Service Dept for repair. A list of dealers close to you can be found at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

Good luck.
