If the thread is not clearing the hook te chances are the machine will need retiming, have you checked for any sharp edges or burrs ont the hook that might be holding it back, if the machine is sewing perfectly once you getit going and is not missing stitches the timing will be okay.

Won't catch the bobbin thread everytime. skips. I have retreaded everything several times, reajusted tension, and even the presser foot tension.


Install a brand new needle.

Check the upper tension: Remove the thread. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. This ensures the thread is seated properly in the tension disk. Make sure the bobbin case is threaded properly.

If still missing the bobbin thread, it probably has a needle/hook timing issue.

Won't catch bobbin thread


hi Shauna.
this is all i could find out from the internet.
Make sure the presser foot is up when seating the thread through the upper tension. Now, it's time to draw up your bobbin thread. Turn the hand wheel (TOWARDS YOU ONLY, never turn the hand wheel away from you) and hold the needle thread lightly. Tug on it as the needle goes down and then comes up again.
if this is off no help to you go to this link and see if its any good to you.

Bobbin problem


Hi. What a great daughter you are! Almost always, this problem is because the needle isn't in right (an easy mistake to make). The needle shank has a flat side, which needs to be facing a certain way. With almost all new machines (I hate to say all new machines), the flat side of the needle has to face the rear of the machine. The needle would then be threaded from front to back. (There was a lot more variation in older machines, but nearly all of them now have the flat side of the needle shank facing away from the seamstress.) A couple of other things can also prevent the bobbin thread from being pulled up, like if the needle is bent or dull or if the machine isn't threaded correctly, but in my experience, it's most likely the needle.
Please let me know if this solves the problem, ok?
Happy Sewing!

Viking husqvarna classica 100, thread tension


I suspect you are correctly threading the machine but the timing of the needle and bobbin hook is off. When the threaded needle goes into the bobbin area, a pointed hook grabs the thread and loops it with the bobbin thread. Something is catching when the needle starts to come up that is not allowing the bobbin thread to be pulled back through the needle plate opening by the upper thread. With machine threaded and bobbin in place, have the bobbin area open if possible and watch the thread interaction when the needle goes down. To set the hook/needle timing, normally covers have to be removed. Suggest taking it to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for service. You can find the nearest dealer by click on the "Dealer" link at http://www.husqvarnaviking.com
Good luck.

The bobbin thread does not fully rotate in the bottom in order to catch the top thread. The bobbin thread stops halfway... looks like the hook is not catching the thread properly. How do I fix that?? (This...


Is there thread caught in the bobbin case? How far are you turning the wheel and are you holding the end of your bobbin thread out so that the top thread can hook it?

I can't raise the bobbin thread. The needle raises before the bobbin thread can 'catch'


readjust the hook to just grab the thread loop as the needle raises it will take a few tries to get the exact setting for the hook (maybe you will see a mark on the hook shaft to show you where the hook's set screw was located before it slipped)

Bottom thread will not catch


Unplug the machine and remove the needle plate so that the bobbin case if fully exposed. Lift out the bobbin case and the cup that it sets in will be visible. Locate the "hook" on this cup. It is a finger with a sharp point at the upper edge of the cup. The hook is what grabs the thread from the needle while sewing.
  • Thread the needle.
  • Turn the handwheel by hand.
  • Watch the hook as it approaches the needle from right to left.
If the hook passes by the needle AFTER the eye of the needle is above it, you timing has slipped and the machine must be taken in for repair.
If the hook catches the thread from the needle, put everything back together and try threading again.
