U do not recomend that you adjust the bobin tension, what do you have the top tension set at? It should be between 3 and 4, have you put in a new needle? Also, check to make sure the thread is 'seated' right between the tension disc, if you stil have a problem then your machine is out of time.

How do I turn off thread portioning on Husqvarna Ruby De Luxe. I don't want to adjust the settings but need to turn this off. Thank you


FWIW, I was unable to find any information for turning off the thread portioning function. Unfortunately, this appears to be the thread tensioning system, so disabling the thread portioning would be disabling the thread tensioning--something that is critical to sewing. It appears this model may have some issues and perhaps this one is particular to your machine. It may be best to take it for service.

Perhaps this will help:

Why is my Husqvarna Viking 425 not forming stitches


1. Make sure there is bobbin thread. 2. It is very important to have the bobbin thread with the right tension setting. This is done by hanging the bobbin carrier with the bobbin inserted from your finger. Bob it a little and it should extend one inch. If it doesn't extend then loosen the tension(counterclockwise) and opposite if it extends too far. 3. Afterwards insert the assembly and pull a couple inches of thread out. 4. Now, thread the top. 5. Adjust the tension to three. 6. Run three inches of thread under the foot and hold unto the thread. At the same time turn the crank towards you. When the needle goes under the plate and back up it should have the bobbin thread with it. Sometimes the first turn doesn't catch the bobbin thread so try a second time. If this doesn't work then change your needle just in case this is the problem. If this doesn't work you will need a repairman adjust the timing.

How do I adjust top and bobbin tension on Viking emerald 183?


I don't own an Emerald, but I am pretty sure there will be a button for it. It is usually represented by what looks like a twisted strand of DNA. The adjustment will be shown on the screen. I just had a look at the Emerald promo video from Husqvarna, and could not see the button on the green control panel. Is it one of the buttons closer to the needle? I was unable to see those closely.
You will be able to completely remove the bobbin and the bobbin case. There is a small screw on the outside of the bobbin case just near the tension spring (which looks like a thin flat piece of metal). You can adjust bobbin tension by turning this screw - right for tight; left for loose. Imagine the screw head as a clock face and never turn the screw more than 5 minutes at a time. You might like to use nail polish or whiteout to mark where the preset default tension is (mark where the cross piece of the screw head is) so you can return there later.

Viking husqvarna classica 100, thread tension


I suspect you are correctly threading the machine but the timing of the needle and bobbin hook is off. When the threaded needle goes into the bobbin area, a pointed hook grabs the thread and loops it with the bobbin thread. Something is catching when the needle starts to come up that is not allowing the bobbin thread to be pulled back through the needle plate opening by the upper thread. With machine threaded and bobbin in place, have the bobbin area open if possible and watch the thread interaction when the needle goes down. To set the hook/needle timing, normally covers have to be removed. Suggest taking it to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for service. You can find the nearest dealer by click on the "Dealer" link at 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.

I have a Viking 6690. The bobbin tension is loose. How can I fix it?


when you say "bobbin tension is loose" do you mean that the thread bunches up under the fabric? If yes, then your UPPER tension is wrong and it's probably not threaded correctly.

Husqvarna viking, interlude 435...unable to solve tension problem


Sounds like the tension unit is at fault. First check the bobbin tension by removing the bobbin case. Use a half-full to 3/4 full bobbin. Be sure it is threaded through the bobbin case with thread hanging straight down with tension spring on top. Tie the stitch plate to the end of the thread. If the thread pulls the bobbin out, the bobbin tension is too loose. If it does not move when "jiggling" the bobbin, it is too tight (which is not likely based on your description). Small screw (through an open hole) on the side of the bobbin case adjusts the tension of the bobbin case. Left for loose and Right for tighter. Otherwise, contact local authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for their assistance. You can find the closest dealer at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us Good luck.

Bobbin tension on Viking 350 Sewing Machine


Viking bobbin case tension adjustment:
When the bobbin runs out, sometimes it bends the bobbin case tension spring. Then tension is too light. Take the bobbin case out of the machine. Tie the loose bobbin thread to the Designer 1 needle plate. Insert the bobbin in the bobbin case. Here’s the tricky part set the bobbin case on the table as if it’s in the machine (Bobbin is visible and sitting horizontal to table top) threaded as if sewing and loose end tied to needle plate (that is removed from the machine). Lift the bobbin case off the table rotate it so that the flat side of the bobbin are vertical to the table and no longer horizontal. Have the bobbin case oriented so that the thread coming out of the bobbin case sprint (slot area where it is put for sewing) is at the top. Lift it high enough that the needle plate is lifted from the table. It should not release thread unless you shake it gently and then a very small amount of thread. The needle plate is the exact weight resistance your bobbin case should have on the thread.
