Question about Husqvarna Rose

I own a husqvarna viking rose sewing machine. The tension when embroidering wants to make the thread break when it moves to a different part of the design. What can I do?

    Are you setting it up according to the manual instructions? If so you can try loosening the upper tension. if that doesn't work, try loosening the tension on the bobbin case. You don't mention what type of thread and type of needle you are using, but using the correct ones are also a big factor. Again, check manual for what to use.

Blinking bobbin on info display on Husqvarna Rose 600

Do you mean the symbol above the scissors on the infodisplay? If that is the blinking indicator, then the top thread has broken or the spool is empty. If the top thread continues to break, then the problem could be the age of the thread or the thread catching on a spot on the spool. (Thread degrades under most light. So the time it was on display at the store or sitting in your sewing area can be a factor.) Check the spool for rough spots. Make sure that the top thread is threaded correctly. Try a new needle; sometimes the eye of the needle can have sharp burs or edges. Check the top thread tension. Look at the hole in the stitch plate; if it is chipped or damaged, replace it. A damaged stitch plate can also cause breakage of the bobbin thread.

Husqvarna Viking has the manual for the Rose 600 on the machine support page: . The direct link to the manual is . See page 10 a picture of the top thread icon. See page 56 for the trouble-shooting guide. A stand-alone trouble-shooting guide here is also available: . Husqvarna Viking uses same manual for the 600 and the 605.

I hope this helps.

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:

My Husqvarna Rose has been "professionally" cleaned and now the bobbin thread makes a big glob on the underneath side when embroidering with the hoop. They say that they see nothing wrong when returned. I...

Check the upper tension unit to make sure you don't have any loose threads or fluff in the unit causing the tension not to hold taunt when the needle enters the bobbin area. Otherwise, find another dealer for service. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page -

Good luck.

Thread breaks when embroidering

Try changing threads. If you're not using embroidery thread specifically, the "treatments" they use on different threads can really cause problems.

Viking 1+--Thread breaks during embroidery

If the thread will not run through the tension mech on 0 then it is probably stuck on a tight setting. It can be a bit complicated but the tension mech can be stripped/cleaned/free'd up. Another possible cause is the path of the thread from the spool to the needle any deviation from the correct path increases the tension at the needle. If you do not know the history of the machine I would suggest a thorough clean and service.

Mc 5700 problem

Check for loose threads or fluff in upper tension unit and bobbin case tension gauged to 14g resistence. Otherwise, service time I'm afraid. Have it serviced by an authorized Husqvarna Viking Service Technician. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page -

Good luck.

Husquvarna Viking Rose thread error

You need to see if the take up spring is moving freely when you are in these first 15 minutes (I assume the machine runs ok after 15 mins).
The take up spring is on the left side of the tension assy. When the thread is pulled up toward the take up lever, you should be able to look through the slot in the front of the machine and see a copper colored wire move up and down as the thread is pulled and released. This is the end of the take up spring. The spring is attached to the thread breakage sensor. If its movement is sluggish, it may cause the machine to falsely indicate the thread broke.
Sewing very slowly may cause this problem to stop. If the machine runs as minimal speed and then gives thread break indication when speeding up, the sensor interrupter is not moving fast enough and should be cleaned and lubed.
