Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

My viking 6030 sewing machine is so hard t get going it's nearly impossible. Bobbin fills ok just the needle moving parts are very stiff. I can't figure out how to get inside the head at the front to see if something has it bound up. Gears at the back look ok, I live about 2 1/2 hours from a repairman so please advise for self help.

Try spraying WD40 on the moving parts to see if it frees up...If it does free up, then lubricate it with sewing machine oil. The WD40 is a cleaner not a geed lubricant. Normally the problem will be where the top shaft goes thru the machine casting at the handwheel

How to wind a bobbin for a 250 electronic Viking Husqvarna machine


Make sure that the presser foot is raised if you are winding a bobbin with the top thread threaded through the needle. Place the bobbin on the spool spindle with the mark (a stylized H) outwards. Bring the bobbin spindle down. Next pull the thread from the needle under the presser foot to the thread guide on the right. Bring the thread above the bobbin and wrap the thread around the bobbin several times. Cut off the excess thread on the thread knife and step on the foot control to wind the bobbin. When the bobbin winding is finished, remove the bobbin from the spindle. Cut the thread to separate the bobbin thread from the needle thread. Move the bobbin spindle up.

Sewingpartsonline.com has a link to the manual for the Husqvarna Viking 250 on the machine specific parts page (under Manuals), http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/viking-250-sewing-machine-parts.aspx . The direct link to the manual is http://manuals.husqvarnaviking.com/VSM/Husqvarna%20Viking/HVManual.nsf/5bc6115484660075c12575d2003f80e3/ecf97dd171581582852575ed00755e7a/$FILE/Viking%20210,%20230,%20250%20%20x.PDF . The bobbin winding steps are on page 12. There is also a method for winding a bobbin with a different thread from the top thread. See the manual.

I hope this helps.

My viking emerald 118 machine just started breaking needles and the bobbin thread will not hold. YOu can pull the bobbin stitch out by pulling the thread.


Check the upper tension by lowering the presser foot and pulling on the thread through the needle. You should feel resistance. If not, take a stiff brush and clean out the tension disks/dials removing any loose threads or lint. If upper tension is ok, check bobbin tension by pulling thread through needle plate opening. You should feel resistance. If not, remove bobbin case and brush any loose threads or lint from the case, especially in the tension spring where the thread is snapped into place. You may need to use a sharp needle to dig in between the spring but be careful that you don't damage it.

How do you adjust the bobbin tension on an emerald 118


There is a screw on the bobbin case that can be used to adjust the tension. However, first I would check that there is not a thread or lint caught in the tension spring of the bobbin case. Use a stiff brush to clean bobbin case. Use a needle (or other sharp point tool), and check spring area for thread.

I only want to know if the wheel must be loosened to wind the bobbin and if so with direction, to the front or backwards and press and turn or pull and turn.thanks


Which make and model sewing machine do you have?

None of my sewing machines need the wheel to be loosened for bobbin winding. The Singer Touch & Sew bobbins are filled in place. Use the handwheel to get the needle into the highest position (just turn the wheel). Wrap the top thread around the screw that holds the presser foot; open the slide plate part way and press the bobbin wind button. Hold the top thread and then begin winding by stepping on the foot pedal.. The thread should break after a few winds.

The Kenmore and the Husqvarna Vikings both get wound at the top. Place bobbin on winding pin. With the needle up and metal presser foot in place thread the top thread up to the bobbin (through the guides) and up through the hole in the bobbin. Slide the bobbin winding switch over towards the bobbin. Hold the thread tightly and begin winding (step on the foot control). After a few winds are on the bobbin, cut the thread that you were holding flush with the top of the bobbin. Continue winding the bobbin. (The newest Viking in the group has a computer screen; on that one, do not press OK until done winding the bobbin.)

However, if the handwheel is not turning and the needle is down, first find out why it isn't turning properly. This could indicate a tangle of thread somewhere in the system. (The older Husqvarna sewing machine in my home has a non-functional handwheel. The machine will still sew but you have to use the needle up/down switch that forces the needle to stop in the up position before you run out of bobbin.)

Please add a comment with the specifics of your sewing machine and I'll be glad to add additional information.

I hope this helps.

My viking 6570 sewing machine needle will not pick up the bobbin thread


Remove the bobbin case and lean the machine back. Bring the needle down as low as it will go using the hand wheel. Locate the tip of the needle in the bobbin area. Rotate the hand wheel forward and as the needle rises, you should see the tip of the hook cross the back side of the needle, moving left to right. If it is crossing below the eye of the needle, find a qualified repairman. If it crosses above the eye, try a new needle and make sure that the flat side is installed toward the back.

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,...


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. http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

Make sure that the bobbin winder stop is up. That is the little black post below the bobbin winder. If it is pressed down, the machine will not run.

Bobbin tension on Viking 350 Sewing Machine


Viking bobbin case tension adjustment:
When the bobbin runs out, sometimes it bends the bobbin case tension spring. Then tension is too light. Take the bobbin case out of the machine. Tie the loose bobbin thread to the Designer 1 needle plate. Insert the bobbin in the bobbin case. Here’s the tricky part set the bobbin case on the table as if it’s in the machine (Bobbin is visible and sitting horizontal to table top) threaded as if sewing and loose end tied to needle plate (that is removed from the machine). Lift the bobbin case off the table rotate it so that the flat side of the bobbin are vertical to the table and no longer horizontal. Have the bobbin case oriented so that the thread coming out of the bobbin case sprint (slot area where it is put for sewing) is at the top. Lift it high enough that the needle plate is lifted from the table. It should not release thread unless you shake it gently and then a very small amount of thread. The needle plate is the exact weight resistance your bobbin case should have on the thread.

it is called needle and hook timing
after the needle has been fully down and is starting to come back up the hook for the bobbin carrier should be at or slightly before the eye of the needle
in most machines it is adjustable by loosening of the clamp on the needle shaft and moving the shaft up or down to get the desired position relation of needle to hook
don't turn the machine or that alters the hook position so leave it steady while moving the needle shaft
once the desired timing is achieved re-tension the clamp on the shaft
go google and type in--t workshop manual ( not user ) for your make and model machine manual)in pdf version for your make and model machine and the needle /hook timing and adjustment procedure should be in there
