Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

1 Answer

I'm trying to use my embroidery unit for the first time, and it's only sewing in vertical lines that are really close to each other (I'm trying to do a flower). But the image on the screen shows the little cross going to different parts of the flowers. Any idea what's wrong with it?

Did you let the machine do the entire embroidery? It souds like it is doing the foundation stitches and then should go back over those to do the fill stitches.

My machine does not recognize that the embroidery unit is attached. It keeps saying attach embroidery unit. Has anyone had this problem


What make and model of sewing machine do you have? I have seen this problem with a Husqvarna Viking Designer I (or similar older Viking machine). In that case, the problem was corrosion on the contacts between the embroidery unit and the sewing machine. The solution was to use an electronic contact cleaner to clean the contacts; this is one product: http://www.amazon.com/CRC-05101-QD-Electronic-Cleaner/dp/B000CCMLD0 . Make sure that the machine is unplugged. Spray the contact cleaner on the contacts. (In some cases, you should then connect the embroidery unit to the machine and remove it a few times.) Allow the product to dry before you plug in the sewing machine again.

In another case, the solution was actually easier. The owner had two similar embroidery machines. She managed to mix up which embroidery unit went with which sewing machine. Neither embroidery unit could be properly seated on the machine that she attempting to use it with. Once the embroidery unit was paired with the correct machine, both pairs worked.

I hope this helps.

Sounds like your embroidery unit may have a bad motor or broken drive belt. Get that unit into a repair shop.

Singer Quantum XL 6000 embroidery unit keeps saying the embroidery hoop is loose or not installed. There is some problem with the electronic contacts and the embroidery hoop. Can't get any help.


Try push in and push out your hoop several times into the carriage, then if the problem is still there, most likely the carriage hoop lock sensor is faulty.

Artista 165 embroidery unit will not communicate with my sewing machine.


Did it ever work ? Have you had the firmware updated in the machine - if-so, the V4.04 firmware will not communicate with a V3 embroidery unit and you'll have to get them updated to the same version. Failing that, I'm afraid one of them has a fault on the serial interface. Note also that a 165 sewing machine will not work with a 180/185 embroidery unit because the earlier unit has a 2MB memory internally, whereas the later unit has a plug-in 4MB memory.

How do I find out the embroidery time on my Viking Designer 1 sewing machine?


Hi there, If your trying to find out how long it took you to embroider something, You need to go to your touch screen menu- touch Set- then down at the bottom left of this screen and touch More- three (3) times you'll get to where it says Running time:(It's the 3rd Selection) There it will actually show you the total running time (Sewing and Embroidery If you haven't zeroed it out by hitting the zero (0) next to that selection.) You can do this on the touch screen with the embroidery unit on or off. You need to touch the zero (0) to zero out your time before you start an embroidery project. Once you've done this and you've finished an embroidery you can check how long it took by the touch screen menu- Set- touch More 3 times and there you will see how long on the Running time it took to embroider your design. I hope that helped. The total time your machine has ran (Embroidery and Sewing) is kept in Memory on the Service Screen that your Technician gets into when he services your machine. So your not actually wiping out that. The Set menu is just for you to keep track of how long your machine sews or embroiders something pretty much. I hope that helped you out with your question. Happy Sewing!! Kathy

Babylock Ellure Embroidery Unit Malfunction


You need to make sure that the embroidery arm is able to move freely be sure that it has no obstructions like a wall behind your sewing table or fabric that may be stacked nearby. If all is clear you probably have thread wrapped somewhere inside the embroidery unit it only take a little bit to jam up the works. You can try to take off the cover by flipping the unit over and removing the screws to the embroidery arm. I would take it to the shop where you bought it they should be able to help you for free if it is new. If you have the original packaging you can send the machine to Steve's at www.stevessewandvac.com just send them an email they can help.
