Question about Husqvarna Sewing Machines
I just purchased my husqvarna scandinavia 300 sewing machine from an individual and I have not been able to take the first stitch! I am very disappointed! I thought that I had wound the bobbin correctly but, when I thread the bobbin to the best of my understanding ---- it will not sew. It kind of stays at one place; in fact the thread bunches up right away in the bobbin and jams and I cannot do anything. Have I not threaded the bobbin correctly? I do not know what is wrong. Can you help me?
You have received some good advice already, especially to make sure you are using the correct bobbin - these machines will not accept just any old generic bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin thread "clicks" into the bobbin tension slot. Make sure that the feed dogs are up (don't know your specific model, but guessing there is a "switch" under the sewing arm). Hold onto the top and bobbin threads, or at least the top thread, for the first few stitches. Be sure to have your material under the needle when you start (i.e. you are not sewing into "air" for the first stitches). Be sure to put the presser foot lever down before you start sewing. Check threading of the top thread - it must be done with the presser foot lever Up so that the tension disks are open to receive the thread.
If you can't get to a dealer easily, phone the person you bought the machine from and ask for some help.

If you do not have a user guide, you might want to find one. Try ebay or have an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer order you one. In fact I would find your nearest authorized Husqvarnia Viking dealer and visit them with you machine. They should be able to help you and usually are very helpful even if you didn't buy the machine from them. If they determine it is correctly threaded and the bobbin is ok, have it serviced by an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer or have them send it to Husqvarna Viking (SVP) Technical Service Dept in Tennessee for service. The machine should give you years of good performance.
Use only genuine Husqvarna Viking bobbins.
