Q foot for Designer 1 machine

I can't get the Q foot on my Designer 1. I took off the R foot and unscrewed the "base" and tried to attach the Q foot but it will not go on and I don't want to force it. Any ideas? This should be simple but we have no Husqvarna dealers here any more to ask.

    I'm having the same problem only when I do get the foot on I get the message "set sensor foot" and it is already set. Then when I try to choose one of the quilting stitches, I get the same message and it doesn't accept the stitch, just stays at the straight seam stitch. Help!

Hold the foot in your left hand. Attempt to put the foot on, but when you begin to struggle bring the needle down through the foot using the hand wheel. Once the needle screw is lowered about 1/2 way, the ankle will easily fit onto the shank and you can put the screw in.
Bringing the needle down saves you from having to wrestle with the spring tension in the foot and take all the work out of it.

I have a viking designer 1. When I put the embroidery arm on the pressed foot will not stay down. But does stay down when regular sewing arm is attached.


When embroidering, the presser foot hovers above the fabric a few millimeters. The machine does this automatically.

Designer 1 foot pedal won't work


Have you tried using another Designer 1 foot control? It is more likely that the problem is a loose connection at the machine. Do not cut anything apart on the foot control unless you are certain that is where the problem lies.Take the machine in to an authorized dealer and have them test it for you. Find out EXACTLY what is not working. No need to buy a foot control and find out that the connectors on the machine are not properly attached.

I bought a seam binding foot for my Designer 1 and have no instructions. I have tried to use it but can't seem to get it to work. Could somebody instruct me please


Not sure just what foot you have. Was it a genuine HV foot or a generic brand? Could you describe in more detail what the foot looks like and what it is supposed to do. There are lots of videos on YouTube showing how various feet work and you might find what you need there.

Make sure the plug from the buttonhole foot is going all the way in when you insert it. If that doesnt correct it, then the foot may be bad.

I have a designer 1 that won't release the bobbin.


Winding too tight;
Whenever your bobbin won’t come off any Viking, Designer 1 included, it’s because it wound too tight. This is how you know. It went on easy! To get it off, don’t pry, slowly unwind all thread, it will change shapes and let go of the bobbin winder. My favorite way to wind a bobbin on a Viking is to thread the machine through the needle and go under the foot then up to the bobbin winder (it has to be under the foot or it winds too tight. If it still winds too tight, lay your thread down instead of standing it up, the weight of the thread can increase tension on the winding process also check that you use a spool cap as large as or slightly larger than your spool. If it still winds tight. I’ll explain what bad thread can do.

Test your thread quality to start, thread your machine and LIFT the presser foot (this opens the tension disks). Pull your top thread straight back. If you feel no tension no mater how much thread you pull, your thread is good. If that your machine passes that test (tip: always check your thread this way when you thread your machine)

Designer 1 reverse won't select, no light at all


The designer 1 has a weakness of the reverse pad (rubber button set) on left side of the machine wearing out and not working. You can try pushing from different angle, or pushing hard, but it most likely needs to be replaced. If you did buttonholes with the buttonhole sesor foot (foot with a wheel and a cord that plugs in), it would automatically size the buttonhole and you wouldn't need to reverse and you can use "FIX" to tie a knot instead of reverse

Presser foot wont raise and lower


Does the presser foot move at all when the machine is first turned on?
Do the needle and feed teeth calibrate when the machine is first turned on?
You probably need to locate your nearest authorized repair center.
