Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

1 Answer

Husqvarna ROSE: started going slow after rewinding the bobbin. Now I can hardly move the handwheel, let alone sew anything. It feels as if it has siezed, but when my husband took the 'collar' off, everything was moving freely.

Check the bobbin area to make sure the needle is not catching on something with the bobbin unit. Take the bobbin case out and see if it runs. It may be the belt but that's inside. Usually if the belt is off, the handwheel will turn easily but the needle will not go up and down. Suggest service by local authorized husqvarna viking dealer. You can find the nearest dealer from the husqvarna viking website and click on "Dealers" link.

Bobbin stops rewinding before it is full. The machine is a Husqvarna Rose

Is the thread even on the bobbin when it is finished, if it is higher on one side the machine may think it is done, I watch the bobbin wind and if it is not looking even I give the thread a nudge up or down whichever it needs with a seam ripper or something, not your finger the thread moving that fast will cut you in a heartbeat. hope it helps good luck!

Husqvarna viking 300 sewing machine bobbin winder will not stop spinning. machine will not sew when foot pedal depressed. bobbin winder just keeps spinning.

The bobbin winder moves a plate next to the handwheel that disengages the needle from moving If you can't push it back to the left you will have to take the machine apart to fix it.

I just rewound my bobbin and it will not come off the holder, what do I do?

When the bobbin is wound with too much tension it crushes the inside and won't come off the spindle. You need to pull all the thread off the bobbin and replace it. Make sure you wind the bobbin at slow speed and the presser foot is up if you wind through the needle.

Thread is bunching up from bobbin side think tension needs adjusting

I assume you have tried adjusting the top thread tension and are referring to bobbin tension adjustment. Before you do anything, with the bobbin properly threaded, manually pull out some bobbin thread. There should be resistance, just like the resistance you feel when you pull on the top thread with the foot down. Bobbin tension adjustment is by means of a small screw in the bobbin assembly. Mark the screw head position before you start adjusting it (so you can return to that position should you need to). Make small adjustments (1/8 turn of the screw) in each direction and see if it helps the problem. Be aware that thread tension is only one of many problems that can result in faulty stitches.

I have the Husqvarna Rose 600 sewing machine. My bobbin threads are uneven. How can I adjust the tension?

Before you start fiddling with the bobbin tensions, make sure the bobbin is loaded correctly. The bobbin thread should "click" into the tension slot. If you really need to adjust it, remove the bobbin cover, the stitch plate (feed teeth down, it slides forwards - use the black shaped piece on the end of the brush to help but you can do it just by force alone) and the bobbin case holder (light grey curved piece - it just lifts out), then remove the entire bobbin case. Try to mark where the slot in the tension screw is at the present time with whiteout maybe or even try scoring the bobbin case at that mark. This is so you have a point of reference and also so you can return it to that place if everything goes completely out of whack.
Use a small screwdriver to move that tension screw (it is the one directly outside the tension slot). Turn it only 1/5th of a circle at a time, replace everything and do a test sew. Turn to the right to tighten, to the left to loosen (righty-tighty - lefty-loosey). You should never have to adjust the bobbin tension a huge amount and only ever if you are sewing with unusual fabrics and/or threads. If you continue to experience problems, it would be money well spent to take your machine to a tech. and have it serviced and tweaked up - the upper tensions might need adjusting too and only a technician can get everything balanced properly and back to out-of-the-box specifications.
Do hope you are enjoying your Rose. I had one but traded it on a Designer 1 years ago. As much as I love the Des.1, I would dearly love to have my Rose back.

My bottom thread is all messed up i have a rose

Check that it is threaded correctly (both top and bottom) making sure that the upper thread is in the takeup lever. What the needle as you slowly turn the handwheel counter clockwise (toward you) and the needle point touches the fabric (make sure presser foot is down). Is the thread still relatively taunt? If it is loose, the upper thread tension unit does not have enough tension. Check the areas where the thread goes and make sure you remove any loose threads or fluff which could be inhibiting the tension discs from closing over the thread. If the tension unit still is not tightening enough, the tension unit may need to be replaced or the circuit board replaced. If everything is ok in the upper thread area, now look at the bobbin area. With no fabric, watch as the needle enters the bobbin area. Does it go down and the upper thread catch the bobbin thread and pulls it to the surface? Check for anything preventing the bobbin thread from being pulled up to the surface through the needle plate. If you have still not been able to resolve the problem suggest you take 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 -

Good luck.
