Do you mean the Husqvarna Designer Topaz 40? If so, first make sure that the unit is in Park. You need the sewing machine on to do this. Select the Park Position on the Embroidery Stitch-Out menu. This screen is accessed after you choose a design and press Go (at the bottom of the touch screen on the left). Then press the release button on the bottom of the left hand side of the embroidery unit.

The directions to remove the embroidery unit are in the manual on page 6:3 (page 69 of the PDF). The manual is available from the product page: . Scroll down and look on the left side of the page. The direct link to the manual is .

I hope this helps.

My Bernini 830 would not recognize the embroidery attachment. I re-attached many times, but it doesn't work.

I assume you mean a Bernina 830. If you have removed the slide-on table, I have two possible solutions. I've seen this with a couple of Viking embroidery attachment units. (I am also assuming it's not a hoop issue.)

You could have corrosion on the pins that send the signals between the embroidery attachment and the sewing machine. Remove the embroidery attachment and turn off the sewing machine. Unplug the sewing machine. Spray the pins with an electronic contact cleaner; one example is here: . Push the embroidery attachment into the sewing machine by lifting up the far side and then sliding it into the port. Remove the embroidery attachment. Repeat this a few times. (The friction of the insertion and removal will remove any dirt or corrosion.) Plug in the sewing machine and turn it on. Try connecting the embroidery attachment. If it works, remember to clean the contacts the next time the embroidery attachment isn't recognized.

Once I helped someone with two sewing/embroidery machines with an unrecognized embroidery attachment. In that case, the person swapped which embroidery unit went with which machine. The contacts were not the same and didn't mate. Once the correct machine and embroidery unit were paired, the embroidery unit was recognized instantly.

I hope this helps. If it doesn't, you may need to talk to your Bernina repair technician at your local shop.

My machine does not recognize that the embroidery unit is attached. It keeps saying attach embroidery unit. Has anyone had this problem

What make and model of sewing machine do you have? I have seen this problem with a Husqvarna Viking Designer I (or similar older Viking machine). In that case, the problem was corrosion on the contacts between the embroidery unit and the sewing machine. The solution was to use an electronic contact cleaner to clean the contacts; this is one product: . Make sure that the machine is unplugged. Spray the contact cleaner on the contacts. (In some cases, you should then connect the embroidery unit to the machine and remove it a few times.) Allow the product to dry before you plug in the sewing machine again.

In another case, the solution was actually easier. The owner had two similar embroidery machines. She managed to mix up which embroidery unit went with which sewing machine. Neither embroidery unit could be properly seated on the machine that she attempting to use it with. Once the embroidery unit was paired with the correct machine, both pairs worked.

I hope this helps.

I have a topaz 25 viking embroidery machine my screen keeps telling me to attach the correct hoop and I already have and he keeps telling me the same thing and won't embroider

Try removing the hoop, then replace it. When you replace it be sure to push hard so it snaps into place. If you don't hear or feel the snap, it is not in all the way.

Poor tension on a Viking Topaz 20

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.

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

The carriage of the embroidery unit is not move automatically to the embroidering standby position.

Is the need in upright position ?

or have you fitted the embroidery hoop correctly.
If all else fails switch off and start up again - should then automatically go to correct position.
