SOURCE: Husqvarna Viking Designer I breaking needles

Dls8864's suggestion was a very good suggestion - make sure the metal stitch plate is pushed all the way to the back. Also make sure that the thread is feeding freely - if it is catching on something it can cause the needle to be pulled aside and make it break. Does the design fit properly inside the hoop you are using? If the foot and/or needle strike against the side of the hoop, that will cause a breakage. Is the bobbin thread okay - not making a bird's nest underneath?

My husqvarna designer 1 keypad doesnt work


It could be the Touch Screen. If it is a Designer 1. If it is a Designer II or Quilt Designer or #1 it could be the Dcard. Recommend it be checked by an Authorized Viking Dealer. You can find the nearest dealer from the Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us Click on the link Locate a Dealer.

Am moving and need to repack my Viking Designer 2 but cannot seem to get the embroidery arm to go back all the way to the left, so it will fit back in the carrier. I have clicked the little Pyramid icon...


Hi bobbie_berry I have a Designer 1 which is simular to your 2 I believe at least with the control buttons. With your embroidery unit on you hit the needle up/down button which is next to the pyramid icon on the top row and it will bring your embroidery arm all the way over to the left. If that doesn't happen which it should you can always take your embroidery unit off and manually push it all the way over until you can it to fit back into your case. Hope this helps.

4D d-Card Reader/Writer Kit and Husqvarna Quilt Designer II


Assume you are loading your designs using Organizer? Yes? I have very limited experience of this, preferring to use Disk Manager (but you need to have this program which I am guessing you don't).

It is my understanding that Organizer will only load one design to an embroidery media, not a whole menu of various designs. However you obviously are not "seeing" even one design. Did a pre-loaded Husqvarna card come with your machine? I think it should have, but if it didn't then that doesn't help you very much either.

I am wondering if the D-card is not "formatted" for embroidery recognition. The Designer machines like to receive their designs in a certain file arrangement but I'm afraid I can't offer you advice on how to format the card - I do my formatting through Disk Manager.

However, while I was writing the above it did occur to me - are you loading designs that are the .shv format? Your machine will not recognize .hus, .vip, .vp3 or any other format. Please write back to this group and let me know if any of the above was useful to you. I belong to a Yahoo group that deals exclusively with Designer machines, so I will ask the group members if they can come up with any helpful advice.

I have a viking designer I and I am trying to embroidery lettering. No matter what I try, it puckers. It looks like the bobbin tension is too tight because I use red thread on top and white on the bot


It sounds like a stabilizer prob. Try some better stabilibers maybe heavier. It may just need the be adjusted by a sewing technician at your local dealer. You can often take these in and have them hooped up and tested right there on the counter. I can do this at my store here in Portland, OR. They usually like them to run well or they get a bad rap. Just try better bobbin thread like anything but YLI. Try a different needle possibly. Or call Gary at 503-254-7317 and ask him what needle to use and what stabilizer and say Lin asked him to assist you. Tell him you are my friend.

On 955E embroidery unit, the large black gear snapped


Welcome to FixYa. Hi - Viking has online tutorials for several of the 955E features, including embroidery. 
Here is a link to the 955E tutorials. If the link isn't active, paste it into your brower window.
 
http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us/6616_393.htm

As mentioned in the next paragraph, you can order a manual from your Viking dealer if you don't have yours. The Viking manuals aren't very expensive, and it is well worth having. You'll find detailed instructions for inserting and calibrating the embroidery arm, which happens everytime you insert the emb arm. See the Hints and Tips paragraph below.
If your machine is broken, the 955E Parts manual lists each part number in the machine, and the 955E Service Manual should provide instructions for repair. But because the 955E is not discontinued (as far as I know), the dealer might not be willing to sell you those manuals or order the parts you need. eBay often has Parts and Service manuals for sale for current model Viking machines, or you might be able to find them for sale on other web sites. Keep in mind that if your machine is still under warrantly, you risk voiding the warranty if you attempt to remove the covers and perform a "non-consumer" repair.
Some general hints and tips for inserting and removeing your embroiodery arm and navigating the Viking web site: 
  • Always turn your machine off when you attach or remove your embroidery arm or when you insert or remove an embroidery design card.
  • When you insert your embroidery arm, insert an embroidery design card. When you turn your machine back on, you should see a message on the info screen that says something like "embroidery arm will move". Press OK, and the embroidery arm will calibrate. 
  • After the embroidery arm has calibrated, place your hoop on the embroidery arm. 
  • Look at each end of your embroidery arm - you will find a connector that must slip into a corresponding connector on the embroidery machine. This connector slides into a corresponding connector on the machine. The connector on the machine has a cover that slides open and closed. If it is closed, it you might not spot it right away. You must open this slot when you attach the embroidery arm - slide the embroidery arm straight back (not at an angle), so the embroidery arm connects to the machine securely. Although you might need to nudge the embroidery arm in place, do not force it! 
If you or other viewers have a minute to rate my response (good or bad), your rating will help me to determine whether I unserstand your question and provided useful information. These ratings help me provide better service.

Trouble with Viking 955E Embroidery Unit and Control Panel


Welcome to FixYa. Hi - Viking has online tutorials for several of the 955E features, including embroidery.
Here is a link to the 955E tutorials:
http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us/6616_393.htm

Some general hints and tips: 
  • Always turn your machine off when you attach or remove your embroidery arm or when you  insert or remove an embroidery design card.
  • When you insert your embroidery arm, insert an embroidery design card. When you turn your machine back on, you should see a message on the info screen that says something like "embroidery arm will move". Press OK, and the embroidery arm will calibrate. 
  • After the embroidery arm has calibrated, place your hoop on the embroidery arm.

You must open this slot when you attach the embroidery arm - slide the embroidery arm straight back (not at an angle), so the embroidery arm connects to the machine securely. Although you might need to nudge the embroidery arm in place, do not force it! 
The Viking site also has projects for the 955E that will help you learn to use some of the features - you can probably sew most or all of the free projects on the site, but projects for the 955E incorporate features on your machine that might be available on others. And look for the free designs!
Hope this helps get you started.  If you and other readers have a minute to rate this information (good or bad, or indifferent), your rating will help me determine if I understood your question and if my answer is helpful.
A few more recommendations...You can order a manual for your machine from any Viking dealer and probably online, and I recommend that you do. Your machine has some very cool sewing and embroidery features. I sold Vikings, so I can answer specific questions about many individual features, but Viking manuals are not expensive and can help you save time and avoid irritating problems.

If you have more questions, please comment and I will do my best to help you further. I am pleased to answer general questions about embroidery, if you want hints and tips or run into problems.

Cheers, Ginny
