Question about Husqvarna Designer I

1 Answer

USB drive does not regularly read the USB flash

I have a Viking/Husqavarna Designer SE sewing machine - 2005 model. The USB drive does not regularly read the USB flash vaults. Does this mean the drive is going/gone on the sewing machine. The drives work great on the computer and in the embroidery software on the computer, just not with the Designer SE sewing machine. Machine was working great, I keep it unplugged when not in use, to prevent power surge damage. When I went to sew after not sewing for about 2-3 months, it would not read the USB flash drives without turning the machine on and off a couple of times and jiggling.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Being kind of computer literate, that was my first line of troubleshooting defense. Tried 4 different USB's - 2 new and 2 I have been using. The only one it would occassionally pick up if I finagled it was one of the older ones :(
    Thanks for the post....I dropped it off to be serviced and will see what they have to say.

I have a Designer I USB that suddenly started not reading the usb stick that came with the machine. I was terrified that my machine was going bad, but I always start with the cheapest solution first. I bought a new usb stick, loaded the designs from the old one into my software then loaded everything on the new usb stick. My machine reads it every time so far. I replaced the usb stick about 3 months ago and have not had another problem since. I don't know if this is your problem, but usb sticks can go bad and since they are so cheap, I would try this first.

Replace floppy drive with USB on a Designer 1


Check with a Viking dealer whether Viking offers a conversion kit. My guess is that rather than offer such a kit, Viking would rather sell replacement floppy drives or a newer model of machine.

My Viking Designer SE Bobbin does not stop winding


I have a Designer Topaz, very similar to yours. There is a small eccentric-shaped piece that rides the thread as the bobbin is filling. On my machine, it can be turned via the little star shaped "torx" depression. This determines the point at which the drive disengages the winding process. In the alternative, when the bobbin is as full as you want it, just push the rider away from the bobbin; the same effect is achieved.

Husqvarna designer 1 floppy drive to usb


First you need the USB upgrade kit that has the connectors and parts to change the cover of the machine.
Next, you will need a new main circuit board if your machine was made prior to about 2006.
At this point, the cost of parts is about $489. If you can get someone to install these for $10, you can get this done for under $500.
Otherwise, go to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer and check into trading your Designer 1 in for a Designer SE. You will then be able to plug in an external 3.5 floppy drive to read your old disks, a USB stick, or plug directly into your computer and read them from the hard drive (an upgraded Designer 1 can read ONLY from the stick). Used Designer SE's are very reasonably priced since the introduction of the Designer Diamond as the new top of the line and you may be able to get a full manufacturers warranty on the gently used machine.

You can find this information by touching the configuration icon (this looks like pliers). The item that shows you how many sewing hours is called Timer. You should know that this can be reset to 0 by anyone.
