Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

Open Question

I tried to remove the bobbin case (viking 500) and couldn't figure it out. I had to clean lint build up. I got the lint out(took forever with the bobbin case in the way)...now the bobbin case is jammed and I can't move it at all. Do I have to take it in (to the dealer) or is there an easy way to take out and put back in correctly.

I have changed stabalizers and the type of bobbin thread i am using (invisible poly) and it seemd to have solved the problem. Note: wind invisible thread very slowly and carefully it is like fishing line

I had this problem when I first bought my machine. I took it in and they told me it was a recall problem. All the machines were having the same problem. They fixed it and I have not had the problem since. I bought mine at a Joanne fabrics. Hope this helps.

Parts are still available. Make sure you are using an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. Check the Husqvarna Viking website for dealers in your area - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us If the dealer is unable to fix or get parts, have them send the machine to Husqvarna Viking Service Technician headquarters in Tennessee. They can repair or rebuild parts no longer available. Also parts may be available from third party = http://www.pd60.net. Good luck.

SOURCE: freesia 415 - bobbin thread is jamming up will

1. Put in a new needle
2. Take the thread off the top of your machine and rethread the top. Make sure the presser foot is in the up positon when you thread your machine because that is when the tensions discs separate so your thread gets deep into the unit where it belongs. The tension dial (the small dial) should be on 4 or 5.
3. Inspect the bobbin area. Do you see the thread laying across the bobbin itself? You should alway see the thread laying across the bobbin in that model. That tells you that you've threaded the bobbin case correctly. The thread must be pulled into the metal guide of the bobbin case, from approximately the 6 O'clock postion to the 7 O'clock position.
4Never turn the handwheel away from you with the 415. You'll notice that the take up lever is of a more open design. If you turn the handwheel backwards (away from you) the thread will jump out of the lever and jamming will result.

My viking emerald 118 machine just started breaking needles and the bobbin thread will not hold. YOu can pull the bobbin stitch out by pulling the thread.


Check the upper tension by lowering the presser foot and pulling on the thread through the needle. You should feel resistance. If not, take a stiff brush and clean out the tension disks/dials removing any loose threads or lint. If upper tension is ok, check bobbin tension by pulling thread through needle plate opening. You should feel resistance. If not, remove bobbin case and brush any loose threads or lint from the case, especially in the tension spring where the thread is snapped into place. You may need to use a sharp needle to dig in between the spring but be careful that you don't damage it.

How do you adjust the bobbin tension on an emerald 118


There is a screw on the bobbin case that can be used to adjust the tension. However, first I would check that there is not a thread or lint caught in the tension spring of the bobbin case. Use a stiff brush to clean bobbin case. Use a needle (or other sharp point tool), and check spring area for thread.

it would be a good idea to have the machine serviced
Try these suggestions for bird nesting
1. Change the needle--use a needle that's for the fabric being sewed
2. Rethread the machine--top --make sure to use every thread guide
3. try a different bobbin--make sure bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case
& make sure the bobbin is turned the correct way in the bobbin case
4. make sure the thread has not come off the thread take up lever
5. Clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or threads
6. Check to make sure the bobbin is not warped or damaged
7. Make sure the bobbin case is correctly in the machine,, if it's a top loading bobbin you may need to have the bobbin case checked to see if it's damaged or see if the hook and hook race has a problem
8. Also could be a timing problem, and the machine would need to be checked.

Trying to clean under the bobbin case on Viking Emerald 183 and I can't get it out.


When looking at your bobbin case from the top you will notice the hook. Think of the tip of the hook as a clock dial. At 12:00 the hook would be behind the needle. Turn the hand-wheel is at 10:00 this will allow more clearance when removing the bobbin case/basket.

Thread breaks and skips stitches


Open the needle plate, remove the bobbin and bobbin case.....refer to your manual.

Clean away lint and threads.

Thread with the presser foot up.

If this continues, take the machine and samples of the mis-stitching in for service. It could be the timing needs to be adjusted by a professional.

Thread balls up underneath my feed dog when straight sewing. Why?????


Could be needle/hook timing. With machine off do the following to check timing -

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 and thread cutter 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 counter clockwise when going through the bobbin case.
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 sew without thread balling up, 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.

Can't bring up the bobbin thread


Sounds like hook/needle timing is off. Check it by doing the following with the power off:
remove bobbin, bobbin case, and needle plate.
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.
Make sure the bobbin is unwinding in the correct 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?
