My Viking Husquvarna 1100 sewing machine in great condition was turned on sitting in front of me when suddenly it started to smoke. I unplugged it & placed it outside. Have you heard of this before?

Not really but with electricity anything is possible
it could be a broken power cord that shorted out or an electronic control that failed
take it to a sewing machine shop for an examination and diagnosis

Can i use a metal bobbin with husqvarna 1100?

What is important is that the bobbin is compatible with your machine. Not all bobbins will work even though they may fit into the machine. Using the correct bobbin is very important for a successful sewing experience. For the few dollars it will cost, purchase the right bobbin for your machine.

How Need to know how to thread the machine and how

They have many different models so threading and winding the bobbin can vary due to your model. I would recommend calling them at: 1-800-474-6437 and see if they can get you a photo copy of your original owners manual.

Husquvarna Viking Rose thread error

You need to see if the take up spring is moving freely when you are in these first 15 minutes (I assume the machine runs ok after 15 mins).
The take up spring is on the left side of the tension assy. When the thread is pulled up toward the take up lever, you should be able to look through the slot in the front of the machine and see a copper colored wire move up and down as the thread is pulled and released. This is the end of the take up spring. The spring is attached to the thread breakage sensor. If its movement is sluggish, it may cause the machine to falsely indicate the thread broke.
Sewing very slowly may cause this problem to stop. If the machine runs as minimal speed and then gives thread break indication when speeding up, the sensor interrupter is not moving fast enough and should be cleaned and lubed.
