when i,m doing a machine embrody the thread will fray in the needle and spoil the whole design, i,m afaird to do anything on a piece to keep. what is the best thread to use

Yes, I fix them all the time. You will need very good eye sight as the wire/metal hook is very small. If you get at an angle where you can see how the hook lines up between the metal flaps that hug the needle, the hook will probably be off center. You will need something very flat, but strong. I have use the exact-o-knife blade, in the handle of course, a knife, and a tiny screw driver. The hook has to line up vertically and horizontally. What usually happens is when we thread the needle it did not line up exactly, and putting pressure on the white tab, bends the hook. Bend it back and you are in business. If the threader does not line up horizontally, the needle threader may have slid down the shaft. This take a special tool. I purchased mine at Sears tools. There are 2 screws on the back of the threader. Move the needle to the highest position and after loosening the 2 screws, you can slide the threader up and down on the silver shaft, this is trickier, because the shaft moves up and down and rotates as it gets close to the needle. I use calipers/hemostats to hold the shaft while I line up the hook.
Hope this helps.

Hold down the start button and the presser foot pivot buttons at the same time and turn on the power. The machine will make a funny noise and the test screen will come up. You then need to find the sub-menu, I think it says tensions on it but I'm not sure.

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.
