My huskystar is sewing too slow. What can I do to speed it up? I have cleaned all the lint from bobbin area. The longer I sew the slower it goes.

Machine sewing too slow,


Sewing to slow
the leading causes of a sewing machine running too slow are the following: "Thread jam, Incorrect oil or lubricant used, Not lubricated correctly, Machine unused for long time - Gummed up, Belt too tight or too loose, Machine needs thorough cleaning, Worn or bent parts."
Unplug the machine. Look for thread wrapped around the motor shafts or any other motor or bobbin part. Use tweezers to lift thread to snip with scissors. Use tweezers to pull the thread away from the machine parts. Plug in the machine and test.
Unplug the Singer machine. Remove the bobbin and insert a newly wound bobbin. Blow the dust from the bobbin area. Use tweezers to pull out any thread pieces in the bobbin area gears. Plug in machine and test
How often you will need to clean and lubricate the machine will depend on how often you will use it. When in regular use, the machine should be cleaned periodically to remove lint and fluff which may have accumulated around the working parts."
could also be either the motor or the foot control.
May also need to be serviced.

When following manual directions to wind a bobbin, it starts out OK, but after several winds, the thread turns out with little loops on the bobbin. ??? Sylvia


Make sure that you are running the thread through the winder tension guide before it goes bobbin winder. Best to consult your owner's manual.

Also, it helps to slow down the winding process. Slower speed winds the bobbin more consistently and does not stretch the thread as much as a fast speed will.

My machine will not sew. New not used but a few years old. once thread goes down to bobbin it locks and you can hear the clutch disengage. without thread you can run the needle at full speed then it


There may be a small bit of thread or lint caught somewhere in the bobbin case or bobbin holder. Brush lint away from the feed dog area, being careful not to brush lint into the workings of your machine. If you have the manual, look up how to clean lint from the bobbin. If you don't have the manual, try just taking the hook out, if possible. Run a clean toothpick around the housing and then use a clean small brush to brush out any lint or thread pieces. Put one drop of sewing machine oil on the hook of the bobbin housing. Then use a thread to "floss" your bobbin case. Run a thread through the slot and wiggle back and forth to loosen any caught thread bits. Good luck. ps If this doesn't work, repeat. Sometimes after you turn the hand wheel a bit, another piece of thread or lint will work loose and can be cleaned.

Rattle in the bobbin area.


make sure the bobbin is not warped or damaged
also make sure the bobbin fits securely in the bobbin case
does the bobbin case fit securely in the machine?
the bobbin case could be getting old & might need to be replaced.

Husqvarna Huskystar 207 Sewing Machine not stitching. It won't pull the bobin thread up to sew.


Be sure not to use Singer Needles. They are longer than standard needles. Don't know if this helps, but I did this once on my Huskystar 207 and that is what happened. It also damaged the bobbin thread.

It stopped picking up the bobbin thread while sewing. In the middle of a zig zag sewing project, it stopped picking up the bobbin thread. I cleaned the bobbin area and needle area and tried again and it...


Hello,

You can take the slide plate off, that your needle goes through and watch to see if the arm grabs the bobbin thread, if you can get it to pick up, than slide scissors or something flat under your needle and manually pull both threads through, replace the plate.

Your bobbin thread could be wound to tight or spliced threads on it, and your tension needs to be adjusted. If your using a pedal, try setting to a slower speed.

I would try a different bobbin and thread it manually as in the step I mentioned, if you can't see the arm grabbing it, you will need to check to see if you have loose threading jammed in youir machine, if this isn't the case and adjusting the tension dosen't help...than you will need to replace the bobbin casing.

Kind regards!

Change needle
Clean under needle plate where feed dogs are for lint
Clean bobbin area for lint or loose threads
Rethread machine top thread make sure to get every thread guide
& bobbin is threaded correctly & inserted in the bobbin case or shuttle correctly
Check tension 3 or 4 is usually good

after you try all this & it keeps jamming then it may need to be serviced

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.
