    When I turn my #1 on and start to sew, the needle comes down and up very slowly 5-6 times and then takes off like its suppose to. It then sews just fine the rest of the sewing period. It even sews normal if I turn it off and then turn it back on. It only does this when it has been turned off overnight. Could this problem be in the foot pedal? I did use canned air inside the openings in the foot pedal thinking that would blow any dust out of the wiring however, it didn't help. I would appreciate any advice from someone that knows about the Husqvarna Viking Model #1.



    Thank you,

Hi,
Worked with these machines for years - I would say my wiring in the pedal was our biggest problem. Some mis-wire or outsource problem for their company is what I think.

I would just contact them and ask for a replacement - they like to know if several folks are seeing a matching problem - I only had to pay shipping each time I needed a new pedal.

Hope you can narrow it down.
Good Luck

When i push my foot pedal on my Brother SE 400 machine shakes and goes into safe mode


TRY TO REMOVE YOUR BOBBIN CARRIER AND NEEDLE AND SEE IF THE MACHINE WILL MOVE SMOOTHLY WITHOUT THEM. IF IT IS RUNNING SMOOTHLY YOU KNOW YOUR PROBLEM IS THE BOBBIN CARRIER OR NEEDLE. YOU MUST HAVE THE RIGHT SIZE BOBBIN. ONCE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT BOBBIN YOU CAN PLACE ONE DROP OF OIL ON THE RACE (LITTLE TRACK UNDER BOBBIN CARRIER) AND PUT THE CARRIER IN. WITH YOUR HAND TURN THE HAND WHEEL TO SEE IF IT IS INSERTED PROPERLY SO IT ROTATES SMOOTHLY. THEY'RE IS A PLACE THAT KEEPS THE CARRIER FROM MOVING. YOU MUST BE CAREFUL TO LEAVE IT LOOSE SO THREAD CAN GO UNDER IT. IF IT IS STILL MOVING SMOOTH WITH YOUR HAND YOU CAN TRY THE PEDAL. IT SHOULD WORK. NOW, REPLACE THE BOBBIN MAKING SURE IT IS ROTATING THE RIGHT DIRECTION. I CAN'T STRESS ENOUGH TO MAKE SURE THE BOBBIN IS THE RIGHT SIZE. IF THIS IS OK THEN REPLACE YOUR NEEDLE. THE NEXT STEP IS TO GO TO YOUR REPAIRMAN IF IT IS STILL A PROBLEM.

try changing the needle--make sure it's the right type for the fabric being sewed
try rethreading the machine make sure to use every thread guide
make sure the power cord and the foot pedal are securely plugged into the machine
clean under the needle plate for lint and also in the bobbin area
also make sure the bobbin winder spindle is not pushed over to
wind a bobbin
if these suggestions don't help then it would be a good idea to have the machine checked..

My daughter's brand new, right out of the box Janome 2212 machine is not working. The foot pedal is not engaging the motor so the needle doesn't move up and down. The wheel is pushed in as it


Sorry, but gotta ask is it plugged in and turned on? Check before you answer. (I ask this because it happened to me, set up, ready to go, and no power. After an hour and the machine was in pieces, My son asked if i plugged it in and I snapped "YES, DUH" not seeing him twirling he plug in his hand...he informed me that you must be 10% smarter than anything you operate or eat....at which point he was happy to inform me, the machine was 11% smarter. If it is plugged in and turned on, is the plug to the foot pedal plugged all the way in? Is the machine on? If you get zero reaction, no movement or sound of any kind, the foot pedal my be faulty, it can happen. Take it back to the dealer and they should replace the entire machine or the foot pedal. Good luck and happy sewing.

The needle does not move when the foot pedal is used.


Make sure that you pushed the bobbin winder all the way to the left.

How to set up


  • Remove your Janome sewing machine from the box, placing the main machine on a hard surface appropriate for sewing and the accessories and smaller items to the side. Unwrap all of the wrapped items. Remove the tape used to protect the machine during shipment. Set aside the power cord and foot pedal.

  • 2

    Attach the power cord to the machine. The power cord plug-in area is located on the lower right side of all Janome sewing machines and has a series of metal prongs and a power switch. Fit the female end of the power cord onto the metal prongs and push it gently until it no longer moves.

  • 3

    Attach the foot pedal to the machine. The foot pedal plug-in is also located on the lower right side of all Janome machines, right next to the power cord plug-in. Press the foot pedal plug-in into place gently until it no longer moves.

  • 4

    Turn the power switch on. The power switch is located in the same area as the foot pedal and power cord plug-ins and is a rectangular black switch. Press this button. The sewing machine light will turn on.

  • 5

    Place a spool of thread on the spool pin, located on the upper right top side of the sewing machine. Place the thread so that the thread unwinds in a counterclockwise motion, with the thread coming off the back of the spool.

  • 6

    Insert a needle into your machine. Consult your owner's manual for the appropriate size and type of needle. Turn the needle clamp screw, located above the needle area, toward you to loosen it. Turn the needle so that the flat part of the upper shaft area faces the rear and slide the shaft of the needle up and into the needle area. Turn the needle clamp screw away from you to tighten the needle and lock it into place.

  • 7

    Wind the bobbin and insert the bobbin into the bobbin case. This procedure may vary depending on the model of your Janome machine, so consult your owner's manual for specific instructions.

  • 8

    Thread your machine according to the directions in your owner's manual. Like the bobbin, this procedure can vary widely depending on the model of your Janome machine.

  • 9

    Set your tension, located on the front of the machine, to halfway between three and four. The tension may be a dial or it may be computerized and located on the LCD screen, depending on your model. Consult your owner's manual to find out how to set the tension.

  • 10

    Place a piece of scrap fabric in the machine and sew a test seam before you start to work on a project to make sure all of your settings are correct.

I have a viking 183, I broke a needle and replaced it and now it doesn't work. I have re-threaded - took out everything and cleaned it out. It looks fine but when I put my foot on the pedal (foot control)...


Hi. A couple of things come to mind. First, you say that when you put your foot on the pedal, the machine doesn't work. That sounds to me like you may have pulled the electric plug loose from the machine (or from the wall, possibly). Check to see that all your electric connections are good.
Second, when you changed the broken needle were you careful to get the new needle inserted correctly? Every needle has a flat side on the shank and this flat side has to be inserted facing a particular way. If it isn't, you won't be able to pick up the bobbin thread or make any stitches. The direction the flat side of the needle faces varies by machine, so take a look at your manual. With some of my older machines, the flat side faces to the left, and with others, it faces to the right. But my more modern machines all require that the flat side of the needle face to the rear and it's my experience that modern machines need the flat side to the rear.
So, check your electerical connections and make sure your new needle is in correctly. Let me know if this does the trick, ok?
Happy Sewing!

Hi,
It sounds like the bobbin winder is engaged. On the top of the machine on the right hand side is a spindle that you can put your bobbin on to wind it. Make sure this spindle is pushed to the left when you want to sew and pushed to the right when you want to wind a bobbin.
