    I started out just fine, but after a 5 min break I went back to my machine and continued to sew. when i started on the 2nd piece the thread got all bunched up and tangled around the bobbin case. What do I do? How do I get it to stop doing that. My machine is brand new first time using it when this happened.

Having trouble with tension on my Husqvarna Viking E 20


Be sure to RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread. (Remove the upper thread and rethread from the beginning.) Upper thread malfunctions commonly occur if it is not threaded correctly or the thread is not seated in the tension disk properly.

Install a brand new needle if you haven't already done so.

The needle has got stuck and does not come out when hand wheel knob is turned counter clockwise


You probably have a Bird's Nest, as they call it, under the needle plate.
  • You need to release the needle from the machine
  • Pull your work up and about so you can access the screws
  • Remove the needle plate
  • Carefully cut the tangle of threads around the needle with a small scissors or scalpel
Make certain you have turned the machine off first!

I had this issue with all sorts of sewing machines when I was a Workshop Technician at High School. Students were often in tears when they were sewing something special for an exam!

Thread breaks


Hi!

Check to see if the lower thread be tangled. Also, the bobbin could be threaded improperly in the shuttle hook. Rethread the bobbin in the shuttle hook.
How to detangle a thread---

  • When a machine stops operation due to tangled thread, do not turn the pulley by force.
    If the pulley is turned by force then, lower thread might not be picked up correctly and stitches might not be formed correctly.

  • If threads get tangled, remove a needle plate and cut the tangled threads by scissors or cutter.
  • Do rate the solution if you find it helpful & useful.

    Thanks
