SOURCE: thread tangled and bunched up on one side when

If you machine is looping on the bottom of the fabric try the following.
1. Remove the thread from the top of the machine and retrhead it. Also make sure the presser foot is in the up position when you thread the top because the tension discs separate when the foot is up, so the thread can get deep into the tension unit where it belongs.

2. Replace the needle. They can be bent and still look straight, which can cause a whole bunch of problems.

3. Take out the bobbin and inspect the edges of the bobbin. Make sure it's smooth. When replacing it back into the machine, make sure to thread the tensioin area of the case correctly. You should hear a small "click" when you drag the thread into the metal guide. You enter the guide in the 6 O'clock position and pull the thread to the 7 O'clock position. You should alway see the thread laying across the top of the bobbin through the clear bobbin cover when it's threaded properly. (After you've taken a few stitches on a sample fabric, look through the cover, that's when you can see the thread laying across the bobbin.)
4. Make sure your tension is between 4 and 5.
5. When the bobbin thread is pulled up through the needle plate, you can pull it gently towards the back of the machine to feel how much tension is on the thread and to see if the bobbin rotates freely in the case. If while a bobbin is being wound, the thread has any difficulty being delivered to the bobbin, it can cause the bobbin's shape to distort. It then will have trouble spinning in the bobbin case correctly which will make a very ugly stitch. If you've ever had trouble getting a bobbin off the spindle, the thread delivery was compromised and it was being delivered to the bobbin with too much tension on it and it basically crushed the center post of the bobbin onto the winder making removeal difficult. Sometimes the only way to remove the bobbin from the spindle if that happens, is to take the thread off the bobbin and start again.

I can get you the service manual for your 770, but you are going to need some fairly specialized tools, meters and gauges to do any repairs.

In 37 years of servicing sewing machines, I've seen lots of machines worked on by backyard mechanics; some are ruined, some are repairable, ALL cost much more to repair after you tinker with them.

Need a manual for Husqvarna Platinum 950E sewing machine?

Unfortunately, I don't know of any free sources of the manual. It is available here: . Scroll down to the 64th item in the list. You can also check with a Husqvarna Viking sewing machine dealer in your area.

I hope this helps.

Foot control does not work

Does it work by pushing the Start/Stop button. If so the problem is probably with the foot control. Make sure all connections are secure. You may need a new foot control. Contact your local Viking Dealer and try one of their foot controls to determine if it is indeed the foot control or something else. You can find your nearest authorized Viking Dealer from the Viking website - Click on Locate a Dealer for your local dealers.

Manual for a husqvarna viking victoria sewing machine

I do not see this manual available for a free download. You can try at a local Viking dealer; they will be able to order it or may have it in stock. Otherwise, this site has it (Scroll down; the Victoria manual is listed between the Emma and Platinum 770 manuals).

I hope this helps.

(I know that a local Bernina dealer got us the manual to an older Serger (obtained used) for minimal cost when we provided the model and serial number.)

VIK ROSE 45010050 Stitch size button will go up but not down in size...

Possibly the touch pad is bad. Are they any other buttons that don't work? Usually when the touch pad is bad other buttons won't work either. If only the stitch length won't work then the step motor for the feed is bad or you have a bad board.

Using a twin needle on light jersey fabric with Platinum 770. Set up as indicated in manual but it will not operate and sew at all, just keeps missing or breaking the thread. Only difference between...

Sewing on jersey is not easy, make you are using an anti static needle otherwise it will not sew properly, the only other way round it it to put a toilet roll on your lap, sew over the toilet roll and peel the paper off after but it is time consuming.

Button holes husqvarna 6440

Use the "C" foot.
Set the "Stitch Width" dial to 0, then pull it out. You will now be able to rotate the knob and, if it is working properly, you will get the 4 parts of the buttonhole. Rotate to 1 and sew the left column, 2 for a bar tack, 3 for the right column coming down the other side and 4 should close it off.
The knob may be rotated back around to start another buttonhole by rotating forward. When it is pulled out, it will not stop turning at 4.
Always set the know to 0 to pull it out or push in.
