Question about Husqvarna Designer I

1 Answer

Hello I have a Husqvarna Quilt Design sewing machine. It workes great and Ihave it maintained once a year since I've owned it (5yrs) When I went to thread a bobbin it won't engage. The machine works otherwise in all capacities. Did I somehow lock the bobbin threading mechansim or what could be the problem? Thank you, kate Swanson

Sounds like your bobbin winder has broken down, Kate. Nothing for it but to take it in for repair I'm afraid. It happens - you didn't necessarily do anything to break it - it is just a weak spot in these machines. I think everyone who owns one has had their bobbin winder repaired once, at the very minimum! (Coming up to repair No.3 for mine - luckily mine still winds, but just won't stop when the bobbin is full so I have to manually stop the machine.)

    Kate - another idea - there is a bobbin winding device available now that winds bobbins separate from the machine - called a Side Winder, I believe, and costs around $20-$30. You need to be careful to get the model that winds the Husqvarna Designer bobbins. Our bobbins don't fit the first model that came out so you need to check and double-check before you buy.

4D d-Card Reader/Writer Kit and Husqvarna Quilt Designer II


Assume you are loading your designs using Organizer? Yes? I have very limited experience of this, preferring to use Disk Manager (but you need to have this program which I am guessing you don't).

It is my understanding that Organizer will only load one design to an embroidery media, not a whole menu of various designs. However you obviously are not "seeing" even one design. Did a pre-loaded Husqvarna card come with your machine? I think it should have, but if it didn't then that doesn't help you very much either.

I am wondering if the D-card is not "formatted" for embroidery recognition. The Designer machines like to receive their designs in a certain file arrangement but I'm afraid I can't offer you advice on how to format the card - I do my formatting through Disk Manager.

However, while I was writing the above it did occur to me - are you loading designs that are the .shv format? Your machine will not recognize .hus, .vip, .vp3 or any other format. Please write back to this group and let me know if any of the above was useful to you. I belong to a Yahoo group that deals exclusively with Designer machines, so I will ask the group members if they can come up with any helpful advice.

I had this same problem, on my Designer Diamond. I blew it out with an air can and that didn't work, but then I decided to turn it off, then back on and start sewing a line in reverse. That seemed to fix it. My machine is working fine now.

I have a Husqvarna Viking quilt 870 sewing


The overload message is usuall due to a bind in the mechanical function of the machine. When the motor has an extra "load" caused by something like a tight belt or dry bearing, it "overloads" the motor and the error message is displayed. It is doubtful your problem is computer related. Either way a trip to your service tech is required. If you continue to sew with it, you do run the risk of possible damage to some other parts of your machine. The computer portion of your Husqvarna is guaranteed for 5 years and the mechanical parts carry a 20 or 25 year guarantee depending on when you purchased your machine. A copy of your bill of sale from a Husqvarna Viking dealer or a stamped warranty card is the proof of purchase needed to obtain warranty replacement of parts. Labor is only guaranteed for 1 year.
