Question about Sewing Machines

I have a Viking sewing machine model #6370. I was adjusting the thread tension and the bobbin winder started running whenever I try and stitch. I've checked everything and can't find out what's going on. I'm on a project deadline and need help fast! Thanks so much for your prompt reply.

How do I turn off thread portioning on Husqvarna Ruby De Luxe. I don't want to adjust the settings but need to turn this off. Thank you


FWIW, I was unable to find any information for turning off the thread portioning function. Unfortunately, this appears to be the thread tensioning system, so disabling the thread portioning would be disabling the thread tensioning--something that is critical to sewing. It appears this model may have some issues and perhaps this one is particular to your machine. It may be best to take it for service.

Perhaps this will help:

Need to know how to thread bobbin


manuals can be purchased @ janome. com. your machine should have a bobbin winder. Set empty bobbin on the bobbin winder pin. Thread spool of thread though guide(or tension wheel on the top of the machine;NOT the stitching tension.) wrap thread around bobbin to start, and push bobbin toward the flywheel. slowly press foot pedal and bobbin should begin to turn. apply more pressure to foot pedal to increase speed.When full, bobbin winder should kick back to stop.

Need new bobbins as the ones I have are not for


Hi Karen. First, you really do need a manual for your machine. I found one at http://www.sew4less.com/browse.php?CategoryID=5&filter_brand_id=83&filter_model_id=6040&go_filter.x=27&go_filter.y=9. Sewing Parts online also has your manual: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/viking-sewing-machine-instruction-manuals.aspx
If the bobbins fit your machine and it makes a stitch, then the bobbins you have are fine--what you have is an adjustment problem, to get the stitch balanced. (I have a little tip/hint on adjusting the balance that might help you.) Here are a couple of things to remember when you're adjusting the tension:
1. Use different color threads in the bobbin and on top to make it easier to see
2. Thread your machine with the pressure foot UP. (Otherwise, the thread may not slip into the tension disks like it should.)
3. Adjust the tension with the pressure foot DOWN. (This engages the tension disks.)
4. Move the tension dial only a little bit at a time.
Hope this helps!

Can't pull thread from spool


The sequence of setting up of thread from spool to needle is not complied to actual setting is one factor to be consider it affect the sequence timing of sewing.Particularly some machine are common in starting up threading.fig. shown a basic flow of thread on red color.It maybe a helpful oneb1934dc.jpg

In addition to this the set up of thread to bobbins winder is also need in right place the thread should be in clockwise rotation when coming out to bobbins casing as shown in fig.76e4431.jpg as you can see when thread was pulled out from bobbins winder is moving counter clockwise.If you try to sew, try cotton fabric and set dial to # 3 to 4 and stitch set range to 8 up to 12 depend on layers and thickness,After setting try to sew manually ,turn hand wheel by your hand first,let upper tension catch the lower bobbins tension and arranged thread and insert fabric use hand turning hand wheel several time until stich appear on fabric observed loop thread on lower bobbins on fabric.if accumulation of loop thread on lower adjust upper tension also dial tension gradually until it has a smooth stich appear.

I have a designer 1 that won't release the bobbin.


Winding too tight;
Whenever your bobbin won’t come off any Viking, Designer 1 included, it’s because it wound too tight. This is how you know. It went on easy! To get it off, don’t pry, slowly unwind all thread, it will change shapes and let go of the bobbin winder. My favorite way to wind a bobbin on a Viking is to thread the machine through the needle and go under the foot then up to the bobbin winder (it has to be under the foot or it winds too tight. If it still winds too tight, lay your thread down instead of standing it up, the weight of the thread can increase tension on the winding process also check that you use a spool cap as large as or slightly larger than your spool. If it still winds tight. I’ll explain what bad thread can do.

Test your thread quality to start, thread your machine and LIFT the presser foot (this opens the tension disks). Pull your top thread straight back. If you feel no tension no mater how much thread you pull, your thread is good. If that your machine passes that test (tip: always check your thread this way when you thread your machine)

Bobbin on a Viking #1+ sewing machine


Could be the bobbin case tension is too tight--are you using a thicker thread than usual? Also, check to make sure that it is the correct bobbin for your machine--several are very similar but if not exact, will not sew properly. Also, if the thread is not evenly wound on the bobbin, there would be problems. Check to make sure the bobbin thread is threaded through the bobbin tension. It may help to tighten the top tension, but if the bobbin case tension is too tight, adjusting the top tension will not completely resolve the problem. The tension is correct when the top and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric--this means that whenever you start a different project, you may need to re-adjust the tension.
