Dear Magarita, The safety device is activated when thread gets entangled around the bobbin case. First check by removing the plastic see-through plate. If necessary remove the 2 scews on the metal needle plate and remove the bobbin case completely. Put it back and test by turning the handwheel. It should turn freely.

Hope this solves your problem.

SOURCE: Babylock Ellure thread issues

I have the same machine and love it. Sometimes if the thread is old that will happen to me.  And also I spray the thread with static guard before i thread the machine in dry cold weather.  Since you said you are an embroiderer I assume you are using the same weight thread top and bottom. The other thing that causes that on my machine is if there is a nick on the spool of thread I am using and the thread catches just a little as it comes off the spool.  I use a fine nail file and smooth off the edge where the little v is to reattach the thread when you are finish using it.  I never use them. You do sew a little and cut off the tail off the top thread before you let it go through the rest of design. I hope you have found the solution but I learned these tricks while having the same problem as you.

There are 3 main fixes for a freezing SE.
1> Have the latest 12501 update installed, the 12124 had a problem.
2> make sure you have the right hook (the 2 older hooks have this problem.
3> The newer tension assembly with the grounding strap needs to be in the SE as well.
4> there were only suppose to be 3 but if your screen gets weird when it freezes, it could be the video transformer

SOURCE: I'm using the Mega Single Hoop for the Viking

1. If the design came from the internet or a design package, it's possible that it's "center" has not been centered properly. To correct this you need to open the design in the Husqvarna Viking software and click on the "Center in Hoop" icon. That function redefines the center of the design so it will align properly in any hoop that it fits within. If you have 3d software, after clicking on that icon you physically have to put the black crosshair that designates the center in the design, in the very middle of the hoop and then save the design to your computer, then send it to the machine. The 4d software automatically centers the design in the hoop when you click on the icon.

If you have the software and you "combine" any designs together you must always click on the center design icon to recalculate or redefine the center position and then move the design's center to the middle of the hoop before saving the design. This way you center the designs center positoin around the needle position. Meaning that when you hit the start button on the machine, where ever the needle is, is where the center of your design is.

I hope this helps

SOURCE: On what number should I put 7570 tention when

Refer to the manual. If you do not have a manual, start at 4 and work your way through the numbers, bit by bit until you get good results.

The bobbin thread should pull the top thread slightly under and to the back.

Machine embroidery bobbin thread is heavier than the standard size machine embroidery top thread and this also helps to pull the top thread to the back.

It must not be inserted right, check your manual and if you do not have it handy, go to and download one for free. You can cause real damage if it is loose, so be careful that something isn't broken and not letting it seat right.

How to bring sewing foot holder to embroidery position

Hi, I hope this helps. If it doesn't post again.
Place the sewing foot under the sewing foot
holder so that the pins of the foot snap into
the sewing foot holder when the presser foot
lifter is lowered.
Please check that the sewing foot is properly
engaged by raising the presser foot lifter

Question: Are you using top feed? If so:
"For all sewing jobs with the top feed, only use sewing feet with Cutout at the back (OA, 1A, 3, 4)."

Embroidery foot Part No.: 98-694-840-00 will not work with top feed.

Also, except for eyelets, the darning foot can be used for embroidery.

I'm not sure what you're trying to do :) darn or embroider :); I'm not sure what mode you're working in either; embroidery mode?

Darning with straight stitch
Program 00
Fit darning foot No. 6.
Set the needle at its highest position by turning
the handwheel, and push the pin of the darning
foot fully into the hole of the sewing foot holder
slightly pressing the darning foot between thumb
and forefinger. When doing this, the guide fork
should place itself around the presser bar and the
wire must be behind the fixing screw.
Darning position:
Lower the presser foot lifter pressing it lightly to
the rear until it snaps into the darning position.
Important Only in this position you have the
optimum thread tension for darning.

• Place the darning work in the darning hoop.
• Lower the feed dog.
• Pull up the bobbin thread and hold the threads
when you start sewing.
• Now guide the fabric back and forth evenly;
the length of the darn will be set by the size of
the hole. As you are determining the stitch
length yourself while sewing with the feed dog
lowered, you should sew at an even speed.
When you have reached the width of the dam
aged area, darn over the damaged area again
from right to left.
This guarantees a durable darn.
TIP: The faster you sew, the easier and more even
the darning will be. It you are moving the workpiece
too slowly, small knots will appear on the
wrong side of the fabric."

Whether working with terry-cloth or woven fabric,
with the help of the darning foot and the pro
gram 02 you can embroider initials of your own

Drop the feed dog and insert the darning foot.
Put the machine into the darning position.

Spread the fabric in an embroidery hoop and
embroider in accordance with program 02.

Lower feed dog
If the feed dog is not lowered for embroidering, the
machine does not embroider when the foot pedal
is pressed and the message appea rs:
Lower feed dog

The feed dog must be lowered in embroidery

JANOME 300E thread jamming & breaking when embroidering over previously embroidered section.

It's too thick in that area. this happens sometimes when you get designs made for one of the larger or professional machines. Not much you can do unless you have a digitizer and can reduce the amount of under stitching.

Cant get machine to embroider

there are three positions the presser foot can sit in. Up and down are the same on any machine. The 7570 has an in-between position for embroidery. Lift the presser foot and the lower it slowly while pushing gently. It should stop about half way down. The embroidery foot pushes the foot into the down position with each stitch allowing the fabric to move easily to the next stitch.

What format does the Pfaff 7570 use for embroidery?

The format that is used by the 7570 and the 7560 is *.pcs or *.dst. Either one will work provided that the designs are within the confines of the hoop. The largest size design that would be embroidered by this machine would be 115 x 120 MM.

How do you start embroidering a design where the thread breaks on a Bernina Artista 180 sewing/embroidery machine?

Most machines have a stitch counter, stitch forward and step back features. Check your manual and embroidery machine's screens for this.

IN case you have misplaced your manual I found this one for you. It's big so allow time to download.

Does the futura software from compucon allow you to wind the design forward so you can upload the design to the machine, and can continue embroidering the design to complete it. Reason why is had to...

You can skip color blocks that you have already embroidered. When you get to the one you were working on when the machine was turned off, send it to the machine and use the needle down button to advance the design to the point when you stopped. Then you can hit the green button and proceed.

Once I set up my design card and select design, the needle moves

Hi, and welcome to FixYa. If I understand your problem, the needle goes in and out of your fabric, and the embroidery hoop moves, but the machine does not actually start embroidering your design right away....did I get it right? If have time to answer a few questions, I can give more accurate instructions.

  1. How long have you had your machine?
  2. How long have you been doing machine embroidery?
  3. Do you have a manual for your machine?
  4. Look at the back side of your design - do you see lots of bobbin thread, or hardly any?
  5. Have you taken lessons for your machine or for embroidery?
  6. When your design is finished, can you where the machine skipped stitches?
Here a couple of things you can try (if you have already):

  • Make sure you use an embroidery needle, not a universal. In most cases, you should use a size 90. Change your needle after each project. A blunt need can cause your machine to skip embroidery stitches anywhere in the design.
  • Rewind or replace your bobbin. Make sure you use bobbin thread in your bobbin when you embroider - it is thinner and gives you better tension. If pre-wound embroidery bobbins are compatible with your machine, I recommend that you try one and compare the result with designs sewn using the bobbin thread you've been using.
  • Normally, you should loosen your tension a little bit when you embroider. When you look at the back side of your embroidery, you should see more bobbin thread than embroidery thread.
I owned an embroidery business for several years, and I have six different embroidery machines of my own - so with a little more info from you, I think I can help.
