There is nothing one can do about the lower thread. However, you can loosen the top thread to match tension of the lower one. From the tensioner nut you can do it.

    tried that. It didn't work. what happens is that I put the bobbin in slide the thread in the metal notch and bring it up . It sews fine for a minute or so, then the thread comes loose from the notch and goes directly up with no tension. Any Ideas??

  • Rinoo Kumari Oct 10, 2010

    On the slide of the bobbin there is a small strip of metal that is screwed to the surface and the thread passes through it. The thread is kept under control by this strip. The screw must have got loose and the thread goes haywire. Tighten it with a small screwdriver. The thread will be under pressure and hance not go astrat.

Viking 1: where is the bobbin control, my bobbin is loose...


The bobbin spool is loose, the bobbin case is loose or the bobbin stitches are loose??????

If it is the last one - thread the machine with the presser foot up and see if this resolves the issue.

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.

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.

Mc 5700 problem


Check for loose threads or fluff in upper tension unit and bobbin case tension gauged to 14g resistence. Otherwise, service time I'm afraid. Have it serviced by an authorized Husqvarna Viking Service Technician. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

Good luck.

Bobbin on a Viking #1+ sewing machine


Could be the bobbin case tension is too tight--are you using a thicker thread than usual? Also, check to make sure that it is the correct bobbin for your machine--several are very similar but if not exact, will not sew properly. Also, if the thread is not evenly wound on the bobbin, there would be problems. Check to make sure the bobbin thread is threaded through the bobbin tension. It may help to tighten the top tension, but if the bobbin case tension is too tight, adjusting the top tension will not completely resolve the problem. The tension is correct when the top and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric--this means that whenever you start a different project, you may need to re-adjust the tension.
