Hi, the most likely reason for this is that the needle is not inserted correctly. There is a flat side to the needle shank that has to be inserted facing a particular way--to the right as you're facing the machine, or to the left, or to the rear, facing away from you. Most modern machines need the flat side of the needle facing to the rear, so try that first. Also make sure the needle isn't bent or dull.
Hope this helps!

Take care

My bottom thread wont pull out once the cover is closed and the thread is pulled through and ready to sew.


If the top thread is not pulling up the bobbin thread, is it actually catching the bobbin thread? If not, then the machine may be out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

If it catches the bobbin thread but then the bobbin thread is difficult to pull, then possibly there is a snag somewhere that is catching the bobbin thread, the bobbin tension needs adjustment, or the bobbin case is incorrectly threaded.

How to fix the tangling of top thread on bobbin race.?


1. There are many bobbin cases. Make sure the right one is installed. Also, once you have it installed check the handle of the bobbin case to make sure it is going flat with the bobbin case.
2. Check the bobbin you are using. If it is too long it will protrude the length of the bobbin case. It must be able to spin freely.
3. Check the bobbin case on the outside for any rough edges that could hang up on thread.
4. The bobbin tension should be checked. I've attached a guide for this. Your's is the older style.
5. Make sure the top is threaded properly. Especially make sure the thread is going through the thread in the right direction.

Top thread not connecting to bottom thread


First check to make sure the needle is correctly and fully inserted and is not bent, dull or otherwise damaged.

Then make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly and unspooling in the proper direction for your machine. (yes it does make a difference)

If these don't work, your machine is likely out of time and will need professional care.

Why does the shuttle hook grab the spool thread instead of the bobbin thread? It wraps the thread around the bobbin and binds the machine up.


The shuttle hook is suppose to hook the needle (spool) thread and loops it around the bobbin case to form the lock stitch. Is it possible that something was adjusted without proper clearances as to allow the thread looping around the bobbin case to do so without catching up where it should pass through freely?

Have you pulled up on your top thread as it loops the bobbin thread? You are supposed to hold on to your top thread with your left hand and then lower your needle with the handwheel, you have to turn the wheel towards you not away from you or else you can mess up the timing. You will see it catch the thread and you will know to pull it up.

Is there thread caught in the bobbin case? How far are you turning the wheel and are you holding the end of your bobbin thread out so that the top thread can hook it?

Thread ball up


Check your bobbin area. Make sure you have put the bobbin in the case with the H logo up and the thread pulls off the spool in a counter clockwise motion. Make sure the bobbin is sitting in the case and threaded through the "catch" on the bobbin case. Then leave a long piece of thread from the bottom, holding the end of the top thread, lower the needle for one revolution using the handwheel. Does the top thread catch the bobbin thread and pull it to the top? This is done without fabric. Your checking to determine if the top thread catches the bobbin thread and pulls it to the top. IIf it does not, it is most likely hook/needle timing. f it does, gently pull on the bobbin thread and determine if it pulls through with a little resistence (checking bobbin tension). Make sure you are using correct needle -- Schmitz or Inspira needles are recommended (Universal size 80 is standard). Make sure you are using Husqvarna Viking made for your machine -- original ones were green but there are some new colored ones but all have the Husqvarna logo on them. Otherwise take it to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. You can find your closest dealer at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us Good luck
