I have a viking designer 1. When I put the embroidery arm on the pressed foot will not stay down. But does stay down when regular sewing arm is attached.


When embroidering, the presser foot hovers above the fabric a few millimeters. The machine does this automatically.

When I sew, the stitching is loose with large loops on the underside of the fabric making the bobbin thread slide out easily. How do I fix that?


Lift the pressue foot off the fabric. Hold the thread spool with one hand and lightly pull the thread hanging out the back of the needle. This should seat the tread into your top tension discs properly. Now try sewing again. If it still throws loops, you either do not have your machine threaded correctly or your tension on top is set to zero.

Sounds like the linkage between the lifter and foot is caput. If you open the case, you void the warranty.

Brother XL-5130 machine...cannot get it to darn or embroidery work. I covered feed dogs with the plastic cover but cannot find a lever to put down the feet. With presser foot lever down (no feet and not...


You probably do not have lever to put the feed dogs down. That's why you have a cover. To free style embroider or darn you don't need a foot but the presser foot has to be down and as you run the machine, YOU will be doing the stitching by moving your fabric back and forth. This is usually done with a wooden embroidery hoop so that your fabric stays taught. I have done it on jeans without a hoop. Hope this helps.

Lights turn on but foot pedal stays dead. Needle


If you know someone who is savvy in the mysteries of electricity, ask them to test the foot pedal to see if it is working and the socket on the machine to see if it is receiving power.

If you need a new foot control pedal - check the Internet for best prices - you will need the machine's model number.

If you take the machine to a dealer for service, ask what it will cost before making the trip.

The bench rate for just looking at the machine may not be worth it.

Viking Designer 1 presser foot will not stay down


The foot should come up slightly above the fabric when in embroidery mode. If not, the fabric could not move.
The foot should come up the same distance that it would if you were to put the foot in the pivot position while sewing. If it is coming up more than that, then you have a problem and will need to see and authorized technician.
