Question about Husqvarna Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I am totally new to machine sewing and I have a Husqvarna Model 400, its been working perfect then suddenly when sewing the thread from underneath (the spool side) is just coming out in huge clumps, the top looks fine. Its the same thread on the upper and in the spool and this hasn't changed, its all threaded correctly so I am at a loss what to try next.

When you say "the spool side" I assume you mean the bobbin. There are a couple of reasons why this could be happening. First re-thread your upper thread with the presser foot up and check to see if the top thread is firmly in the tension disc. Usually when you have looping of thread on the underside of your fabric, it is the upper thread that is out of whack. Just the opposite of what you would think! When you're sure the top thread is right check your bobbin to make sure that's wound tight and not "mushy." When you start by wrapping the thread around the bobbin by hand and then put it on the winder to fill it, it is not tight enough so the whole bobbin winds too loose. This can cause clumps underneath. The last thing to check is that the bobbin thread is caught in the tension slot in the bobbin case and that there is no stray threads in the bobbin case opening to cause trouble. Hope this helps. Good luck. You have a great machine!

Need to know how to take the cover off of a viking 400 sewing machine?


Screws are either T10 or T20. There are some on the back and some on the bottom. However, would recommend taking it to a Viking Service Tech for repair. Occasionally you can use tweezers and pull thread out if it is not tightly embedded in the sewing head. You can find a dealer near you by using the link 'Locate a Dealer' at the Husqvarna Viking Website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

Husqvarna 3610 doesn't pick up lower thread


Hi, Check to see if needle is bent. If the needle is bent it will not work well and soon it will break.
Replace the needle. Also lube the moving parts on your machine. (fine oil) sold in most sewing centers.

I have a singer model 2200 inspo\iration sewing machine. The top stich sews perfect, but the bottom stich balls up.


Totally rethread your machine, then check your needle, put in new one if you haven't changed it in awhile or not sure if it is bent. Usually it is in the top threading for problems underneath. Also, make sure that you are using the same weight of thread top and bottom or else you can have problems. 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.

Husqvarna bobbin thread jamming


Make sure the bobbin thread "clicks" into the tension slot. However, thread nests underneath are usually caused by the top thread, not the bobbin. Make sure your thread is seating itself in the top tension disks. To do this, put the spool on the machine, pull off about 12 or 15 inches of thread, then hold this thread down with one finger on your right hand as you take the thread tail through the threading path with your left hand. When you get to the needle, tug the thread (still holding it down up top) to be sure it seats in the tensions disks. You must also have the presser foot UP while you do this to ensure that the tension disks are open. Watch the first thread guide after the spool as you sew to make sure the thread is not jumping out of there (a common problem with Des1 machines, fixed with SEs - no comfort to you and me!). I have put a small piece of tape across there with the end turned back on itself so no sticky bit is going to catch on the thread.

I have a viking Iris sewing and embroidery machine and the bobbin thread is bunching up underneath so then the thread breaks


When I had that happen, it turned out that I had not wound the bobbin thread correctly (it was not wound tight and smooth enough). Wound a new bobbin from scratch, and all worked fine.
