Sometimes when a bobbin is wound very fast the plastic gets hot and misshapen, and you can't remove it. Nothing for it but to break the bobbin - it's useless now anyway even if you could get it off in one piece. Pull off as much thread as you can and use pliers or something similar to break enough of the bobbin so it will come off. You need to take care not to let little broken pieces fall into the machine mechanism and take care not to yank too hard on the bobbin winder spindle. If all this scares you too much, take the machine to your dealer for help. And remember to slow the machine down a click or two when you wind bobbins! (It may be of some comfort to you to know that every user of plastic bobbins has done this at some time!)

When I try to fill my bobbin the thread gets all balled up on top of the bobbin instead of filling it. What should I do?


Consult your owner's manual. Chances are you may be threading the thread incorrectly. Make sure it is going through the bobbin winder tension guide before going to the bobbin winder mechanism.

If it continues, the bobbin winder may need a height adjustment. I had that issue with a machine that the case surrounding the bobbin mechanism was slightly misaligned. Once it was fixed, the bobbin winder worked perfectly.

I just inherited another Huqvarna (this is a model 630). It was working great until I wound a bobbin on it. After I removed the filled bobbin the machine won't move the needle up and down (but the bobbin...


I do not know the Husqvarna Viking 630. However, I have used the Viking 6690 and it has a similar on-the-side bobbin winding routine. I suspect that you failed to move the bobbin winding mechanism back into the sewing position. Look closely at the area around the bobbin winding spindle. It looks like there is a lever below the spindle. Does this need to be moved or rotated? Double check the steps in the manual and check that you did the opposite steps of preparing to wind the bobbin.

On the 6690, you pull out a knob after removing the bobbin. (You push this piece in and put the bobbin onto the now exposed spindle for winding.)

I hope this helps.

How to fix viking designer 1 broken bobbin winder


If you mean the bobbin winder mechanism where the bobbin slips on to the spindle is loose, the pin that holds it in place has come out. It's an easy fix but requires that all the covers be removed. Suggest taking it to an authorized Viking dealer for repair. You can find your local dealer by going to the Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us and click on Locate a Dealer.

The bobbin on my Husqvarna sewing machine (Viking 100) is stuck on the bobbon winder


If your bobbin still has thread on it, remove it by hand and then try to pull the bobbin off the winder.

Bobbin stuck on winder


Sounds like you need to remove some thread off the bobbin to get the pressure off. Sometimes if you wind too fast or you have a poor quality thread, the thread will stretch as it winds and causes to bobbin to compress onto the winder shaft.
Good Luck!

Have a husquvarna viking 200 machine and the bobbin has stuck on the mechanism while I tried to remove it after the bobbin was filled. Have pulled and pulled and it simplyu will not come off. Thanks for...


I'm assuming you are talking about the rewinding mechanism on top. There are grooves in the bobbin which fit on to the rewinding spindle that holds the two together while the bobbin fills. It may be they have gotten out of synch or the bobbin is a non-standard Husqvarna Viking bobbin for that machine. These usually use green bobbins but they have come out with new colors but all have the Husqvarna logo on the bobbin -- an H. I would try to wiggle it slightly to try to remove it. If still will not come off, try popping it off with a flat head screw driver but be sure to put a folded towel under the screwdriver so that you don't damage the molding of the machine. If you still are unable to get it off, recommend taking it to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. A list of dealers near you is available at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

Good luck.

Viking sewing machine 545 bobbin stuck on rewind


It should just pull off of the winder shaft. There is a small spring that sticks out from the shaft to hold the bobbin in place (at least on my wife's Viking which is a different model number than yours). Is there a release button somewhere near?

Bobbin does not wind all the way up


I have had this problem, easily fixed by twisting the rubber knob that is in contact with the spool to the left.

Bobbin Winder won't release


i have a husqvarna rose, i has the same problem when i started using my machine. i was suggested to not wind the bobbin so fast. the reason it gets stuck is because the thread is so tight on the bobbin it actually makes the bobbin a tiny bit smaller, making it hard to get off again. if you dont wind it so fast, it doesn't get so tight.
