Threading a Viking Husqvarna 1100

I just bought this used machine. I have the owner's manual but it isn't very clear on exactly how to thread a Viking Husqvarna 1100. The thread feels too tight to me and keeps breaking. I feel like it's because I don't have it threaded properly rather than a tension adjustment. Also, when I tried to fill the bobbin, it only filled about halfway but this could be because of the machine not being threaded correctly.

#37 in the list as of me posting this. You can get a CD version too but you'll just pay more and wait longer for the same thing. Once you have it print the manual (preferably both sides to keep it small) ang you'll have it. You can also peruse eBay to see if anyone is selling a manual but I doubt that will yield regular results. The machine looks to be pretty basic and standard but it's best you have the manual to get the most out of the machine. Also be sure to check the cleaning and lubrication section and go through the process so that the machine is in top working order before you put it into regular use - saves a lot of headaches.

SOURCE: My threading is too loose?

Thank you - fixed it completely... though you have to take the bobbin case out completely to access that screw. - Remove the 2 screws holding the metal plate with a nickel and remove the plastic piece over the bobbin case - there is a small metal lever on the lower left side that needs to be pressed down. You can then remove the bobbin case. There are 3 screws - the center one is the tension adjustment. It was painted green on my machine.  It appears that it is not a regular setting change, but a bad adjustment from the factory. So if you don't feel comfortable doing all that returning the machine for another will likely fix the issue.

SOURCE: husqvarna viking, interlude 435...unable to solve tension problem

Sounds like the tension unit is at fault. First check the bobbin tension by removing the bobbin case. Use a half-full to 3/4 full bobbin. Be sure it is threaded through the bobbin case with thread hanging straight down with tension spring on top. Tie the stitch plate to the end of the thread. If the thread pulls the bobbin out, the bobbin tension is too loose. If it does not move when "jiggling" the bobbin, it is too tight (which is not likely based on your description). Small screw (through an open hole) on the side of the bobbin case adjusts the tension of the bobbin case. Left for loose and Right for tighter. Otherwise, contact local authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for their assistance. You can find the closest dealer at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us Good luck.

SOURCE: 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.

Good luck.

SOURCE: The bobbin thread on my Viking Designer 1 is too tight

In most cases, this is caused by loose threads and fluff being in the upper tension unit rather than a problem with the bobbin. There is a screw on the bobbin case that losens and tightens the resistence. However, it can easily come out and then you have a mess.

Try this to check the bobbin thread tension -
Take the bobbin case holder out of the machine. Use a bobbin that is about half full and use standard 50 wt sewing thread.
Take your needle plate (the metal plate over the feed dogs that has markings showing stitch width under the presser foot).
Thread the bobbin thread in the bobbin case, holding the case so that the thread is through the tension spring as though it is in the machine, tied the end of the tread to the needle plate and have it hang below the the bobbin case.
If the needle plate immediately drops to the floor, unwinding the bobbin, the bobbin tension is too loose. If you jiggle the bobbin case slightly up and down and the needle plate moves slightly down, it is just right. If it does not move at all it is too tight. The resistence should be 14g which is the weight of the needle plate.

The upper tension unit, look straight down from the tension unit and you should see some metal disks which the upper thread rides through when threaded. Take your small cleaning brush and brush out any loose threads/fluff there. Look down the left side of the tension unit to make sure there is none hiding.

When you tighten the upper tension unit by pushing the tension buttons on the screen, do you hear the tension disks tightening? If not, it may be the pc board or the tension unit itself that will have to be replaced.

Otherwise, you might want to take it to an authorized husqvarna viking 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 - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

Good luck

I need a sewing guide, basic , starting with threading


Hi! You can find manuals for Husqvarna Viking sewing machines at http://sewingpartsonline.com/viking-sewing-machine-instruction-manuals.aspx. Another place to look for an instruction manual for your machine is http://www.sewconsult.com/husqvarna/husqvarna_instruction_manuals.htm. I didn't find anything about replacement instruction manuals on Husqvarna Viking's website--BUT they have a neat feature called The Sewing Room that offers how-to-sew instructions. (http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us/3368.htm)

You can also take a look at my Hints and Tips about threading your machine.

Let me know if this helps!

Happy Sewing!

I need to know how to thread my Viking Husqvarna Huskylock 905/910 This is a serger sewing machine and very difficult to thread. I have had this machine for quite a while and have not had the opportunity...


You have a great machine. These are hard to thread but once you have mastered it, you'll have many years of great use. The owner's manual has instructions, as well as the inside door of the machine (the door that folds down on the front bottom part of the machine. However, you might want to follow-up with your local authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. Most are eager to help you even if you didn't purchase the machine from them. Some even have classes on using the serger. You might try several stores in the area. Suggest that it be serviced and cleaned by an authorized Husqvarna Viking Dealer. You can find the nearest dealer by click on the "Dealer" link at http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

Good luck.

One fundamental tip is to follow the color coding, start with green, then blue/navy, then red, and finally yellow. The sequence is work inside to outside with threading (green - blue - red - yellow). Do not try different order--especially with green and blue -- since the threads build on each other. I have switched yellow and red with no impact but green then blue is always the proper order.

Good luck.

They have many different models so threading and winding the bobbin can vary due to your model. I would recommend calling them at: 1-800-474-6437 and see if they can get you a photo copy of your original owners manual.

Someone gave me a machine


Kelly,

I found the Instruction Manual for the 6000 Series machines (6010 and 6020) on www.sewusa.com available for purchase: $15 including shipping.

Additionally, the site says they will post a FREE Threading Diagram for any machine for which they have the manual. You need only make the request through their email link on that site. They already have posted Threading Diagrams for several Viking machines, however the 6020 is not yet posted. I emailed a request tonight. Hopefully they will get it posted soon.

Let me know if there's anything more I can do to help.
