    My husband was sewing with my Huskystar 207 and struggled with getting the tension right. I got it adjusted correctly for him and he finished his project. A few days later I needed to sew something and nothing happens--no light comes on, no hum, no movement NOTHING. My husband reports that he didn't experience any odd behavior once I got him over his tension problems;no strange noises, no stalling. I tried different electrical outlets, tried unplugging and re-plugging the power cord several times. nothing happens. I am distraught--this is my livelihood.

I'm going to assume "by no power" you mean the light doesn't come on and the machine won't run. If this is the case you might want to unplug the cord from the machine and plug it back in. If this solves your problem , GREAT. If not, you have either a burned out fuse or a bad circuit board which means you need to get it to a good mechanic who can get Viking parts.

When I turn on my machine the needlehousing judders and stops at extreem left position and ERROR #1 comes up on screen

The temperature in the room the machine was at 28c and humidity was at 85%.

Switched aircon on and went out to dinner. Came back two/three hours later. Temperature was down to 23c and humidity to 30%.

Plugged machine back in and it worked straight off.

Seems the machine does not like high temp and high humidity.

When I turned on my viking 980, the power went on for a moment and then went completely dead. Checked that outlet has power, all connections are made securely.

More than likely it blew the fuse in the transformer, although it is fairly easy to replace this fuse it is important to find out why it blew. The transformer is under the machine and held in place by 4 screws. Take this out and ease the transformer out, it will still be hooked to the connecting wires just gently disconected them. Once you open the transformer you will see a small fuse, you can take it to radio shack and get an EXACT replacement.

Machine stopped running, its getting power but wont run.

I would take it back to your service tech or choose another. It may be something simple that needs replacement, like a new cord. (or . . .)

Also, before thinking of buying a new machine, I would get another opinion.

Viking Designer 2 service mode

Hold down the start/stop button and the presser foot pivot button at the same time and turn the power on. You may need to try it a few times.
Hope that helps.

I filled the Bobbin, now how do I get it to go back to sewing

Something didn't click back in place when you removed the bobbin from the winding mechanism. Try winding another bobbin. Make sure it stops, then remove it. If the problem continues, take it to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. They should still be able to take a look at it. Check Husqvarna Viking website for dealer closest too you.
