Problems with stitching

I have a Viking Iris and I'm having problems with the stitching. The underside of stitching is on the top. As in the actual stitch is on the wrong side of the fabric. If that makes sense. It's threaded up correctly and the tension sets automatically. So I don't know what's wrong. Please help.

I think what you are describing is the bobbin thread is pulling up to the top of your work so the pretty side is getting ugly. If so, you may need to have the machine serviced and the tensions adjusted. You can adjust the bobbin tension, but if the problem is caused by a piece of lint or stray thread lodged in the proper place and it later comes loose, you just have to adjust it again.

Husqvarna Viking Iris sewing machine keeps beeping and top thread broke icon flashes on display despite being fine. The machine sews fine on slow speeds without issue


Does the thread actually break? The upper thread sensor is normally connected to the check spring that is part of the top thread tension assembly. I would check or have a Viking tech check the tension assembly to see if something is causing the sensor to stop working. It might be a bit of thread or something else.

I just bought a used Viking Iris. I removed the embroidery unit and now when I try to sew it just beeps at me. What's wrong?


Did you remove the stitch card? If not remove it with the machine turn off. Is there anything showing or flashing on the info screen?

?The top stitches are fine; the bottom stitches are very loose.


Firstly check the tension on your bobbin case is sufficient or if the thread is actually into the spring fully, this is most likely cause of bottom thread loose stitching. You can test bobbin case tension adjustment using the "Dangle" test, here is a link to some good images to help.
http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Repair/Thread_Tension_Settings.htm

If you look closely and there is actually looping on the underside then is is the top thread coming to the underside and not being tensioned back up; so top thread is not under tension enough or at all.

Set top tension to 4-5, then recheck the threading up and and always thread with the presser foot raised as this opens up the tension device so the thread can seat in fully. Once you've threaded to just before the needle thread guide, lower the presser foot and pull the thread downwards, it should be very firm if its under tension.

Tension devices can get gunked up or fail with use so if you can't get it to feel firm, it will need a technican to investigate further.

I want to buy more accessories for my Husqvarna Viking Iris


That number looks like a serial number for your machine rather than a model number. The Iris series pretty much didn't have model numbers (other than internal production numbers). Anything that fits an Iris should fit yours. Also some of the newer Viking foots may also fit. Visit a local husqvarna viking dealer and they should be able to assist you. Also the Husqvarna Viking website has information on Accessories for various machines and will provide you with information on your local dealer from the "Dealers" link. The website is http://www.husqvarnaviking.com Good luck.

My 5 year old Huskystar 216 sewing machine is


Sounds like the hook/needle timing. To check do the following:

With the power off!!
remove bobbin and bobbin case.
push needle all the way to the left.
Turn handwheel toward you watching the needle and bobbin housing hook. The point of the hook should line up right above the eye of the needle.

If not timing, clean bobbin area removing lint and thread.
Check bobbin tension, should get slight resistance when pulling thread.
Make sure using only Husqvarna Viking bobbins -- most are green but they have new colors now. All will have the Husqvarna logo on them (an H). Make sure the bobbin is unwinding in the right direction.

Remove fabric. Pull extra long bobbin thread (about 3 inches). Hold upper thread tail in left hand, turn handwheel toward you for 1 revolution. Is the bobbin thread caught by the top thread and pulled through the opening of the needle plate?

If you are still unable to get a good stitch, take to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for service or have them send to Husqvarna Viking (SVP) Technical Service Dept for repair. A list of dealers close to you can be found at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

Good luck.

After a few stitches my machine quits


The problem you are having is with the sensor on the top tension unit. There is a sensor that registers the movement of the spring which lets the machine know that it's sewing. When the spring either sticks or the sensor moves out of position because of vibration, the machine "thinks" that the top thread is broken. The machine needs to be taken apart and the top tension spring checked to see if it still has enough pressure to return to it's starting position, or to see if the sensor is in it's correct position. A trip to your service tech is required

Viking is skipping some stitches when it is on zigzag


These are great machines but after 25 years there are probably a lot of problems that need to be fixed. It could be as easy as buffing or replacing your needle plate. If you take it in for service (and can actually find someone who is good with this machine) you will probably pay $200 to $400 to get it back to 'factory' state.

Bobbin thread bunches up creating a tangled mess under the plate


This could either be due to the bobbin being wound too loosely, or the tension on the top thread is too loose. This just happened to me the other day, and I thought it was the bobbin thread, but then I put another bobbin in with a different color than the top thread (this is a huge help in diagnosing thread issues), and I was surprised to find that it was actually the top thread that was a big loopy mess on the underside of the fabric. I fixed it by tightening the tension on the top thread (quite a bit), and everything was fine.
