Question about Husqvarna Designer I

1 Answer

Am moving and need to repack my Viking Designer 2 but cannot seem to get the embroidery arm to go back all the way to the left, so it will fit back in the carrier. I have clicked the little Pyramid icon (top left button) but it will not go all the way over and won't fit in the carrier unless the arm is all the way to the left. How do I do this? Please help. Thank you.

Hi bobbie_berry I have a Designer 1 which is simular to your 2 I believe at least with the control buttons. With your embroidery unit on you hit the needle up/down button which is next to the pyramid icon on the top row and it will bring your embroidery arm all the way over to the left. If that doesn't happen which it should you can always take your embroidery unit off and manually push it all the way over until you can it to fit back into your case. Hope this helps.

Embroidery Arm is not moving right/left


Check to notice if when the embroidery arm is installed and you turn the power on does the embroidery unit move as it calibrates the stepper motors. If not I would first check the plug where the machine and embroidery unit attach. If this looks ok and is not out of place it could be a cable, or the main circuit board. Both of those are for your dealer to repair.

I the floppy discs that control my Designer 1 embroidery machine


You can have replacement discs ordered from Husqvarna Viking. Visit an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for them to order the replacement discs. However, you might luck out and they have some already on hand from a scrapped machine or a trade-in. You can find your nearest dealer by visiting the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com and clicking on dealer link down the left side of the page.

Good luck.

Cant get rid of message


I think that you need to have an authorized Husqvarna Viking repair center look at your machine.

The only thing that I can think of that you can do is place your left hand on the embroidery arm that moves left and right. Put your thumb into the opening where the hoop holder comes out and lift the cover slightly. I have seen the cover get pushed down too far so that the sensor inside is not able to move when the hoop is removed so the machine thinks it is still there. Look at the end of this opening in the arm that is closest to your stomach to see if it looks as if the cover is pushed down too far.

Beyond that, several things could be causing this problem, only one or two being serious. Most are simple.

On 955E embroidery unit, the large black gear snapped


Welcome to FixYa. Hi - Viking has online tutorials for several of the 955E features, including embroidery. 
Here is a link to the 955E tutorials. If the link isn't active, paste it into your brower window.
 
http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us/6616_393.htm

As mentioned in the next paragraph, you can order a manual from your Viking dealer if you don't have yours. The Viking manuals aren't very expensive, and it is well worth having. You'll find detailed instructions for inserting and calibrating the embroidery arm, which happens everytime you insert the emb arm. See the Hints and Tips paragraph below.
If your machine is broken, the 955E Parts manual lists each part number in the machine, and the 955E Service Manual should provide instructions for repair. But because the 955E is not discontinued (as far as I know), the dealer might not be willing to sell you those manuals or order the parts you need. eBay often has Parts and Service manuals for sale for current model Viking machines, or you might be able to find them for sale on other web sites. Keep in mind that if your machine is still under warrantly, you risk voiding the warranty if you attempt to remove the covers and perform a "non-consumer" repair.
Some general hints and tips for inserting and removeing your embroiodery arm and navigating the Viking web site: 
  • Always turn your machine off when you attach or remove your embroidery arm or when you insert or remove an embroidery design card.
  • When you insert your embroidery arm, insert an embroidery design card. When you turn your machine back on, you should see a message on the info screen that says something like "embroidery arm will move". Press OK, and the embroidery arm will calibrate. 
  • After the embroidery arm has calibrated, place your hoop on the embroidery arm. 
  • Look at each end of your embroidery arm - you will find a connector that must slip into a corresponding connector on the embroidery machine. This connector slides into a corresponding connector on the machine. The connector on the machine has a cover that slides open and closed. If it is closed, it you might not spot it right away. You must open this slot when you attach the embroidery arm - slide the embroidery arm straight back (not at an angle), so the embroidery arm connects to the machine securely. Although you might need to nudge the embroidery arm in place, do not force it!

Trouble with Viking 955E Embroidery Unit and Control Panel


Welcome to FixYa. Hi - Viking has online tutorials for several of the 955E features, including embroidery.
Here is a link to the 955E tutorials:
http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us/6616_393.htm

Some general hints and tips: 
  • Always turn your machine off when you attach or remove your embroidery arm or when you  insert or remove an embroidery design card.
  • When you insert your embroidery arm, insert an embroidery design card. When you turn your machine back on, you should see a message on the info screen that says something like "embroidery arm will move". Press OK, and the embroidery arm will calibrate. 
  • After the embroidery arm has calibrated, place your hoop on the embroidery arm. 
  • Look at each end of your embroidery arm - you will find a connector that must slip into a corresponding connector on the embroidery machine.

You must open this slot when you attach the embroidery arm - slide the embroidery arm straight back (not at an angle), so the embroidery arm connects to the machine securely. Although you might need to nudge the embroidery arm in place, do not force it! 
The Viking site also has projects for the 955E that will help you learn to use some of the features - you can probably sew most or all of the free projects on the site, but projects for the 955E incorporate features on your machine that might be available on others. And look for the free designs!
Hope this helps get you started.  If you and other readers have a minute to rate this information (good or bad, or indifferent), your rating will help me determine if I understood your question and if my answer is helpful.
A few more recommendations...You can order a manual for your machine from any Viking dealer and probably online, and I recommend that you do. Your machine has some very cool sewing and embroidery features. I sold Vikings, so I can answer specific questions about many individual features, but Viking manuals are not expensive and can help you save time and avoid irritating problems.

If you have more questions, please comment and I will do my best to help you further. I am pleased to answer general questions about embroidery, if you want hints and tips or run into problems.

Cheers, Ginny
