Husqvarna Viking Designer I (feed dogs will not lower)

Hi! I just bought a well loved Husqvarna Designer I from my local quilt shop today. I have been reading the manual and getting to know my new machine. It sews great, however I can not get the feed dogs to lower. I looked at the manual, took the extension bed off and flipped the little switch on the fron of the bed to the left, but nothing happens. I did this while the machine was on and also while it was off (the manual did not specify which was, so I tried both). Is this problem new operator error or is there something wrong with the feeddog lever. Thanks!

Its likely this machines feedogs have either never been lowered or not lowered for a long time. Thus the old oil has hardend and is causing the mechanism to freeze up. A tech would take the bottom cover off, follow the connections from the lowering knob, button or switch to the feeddogs and putting a bit of oil or penetrant on each moving connection. Don't force anything, gently tap where you beleive its sticking and turn, push or flip the switch, knob or button slowly bit by bit, back and forth until they drop. They will work loose then make sure they get a bit of oil again. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Hi, Free motion quilting is done with your programmed quilting stitches, Lower the feed dogs using the small white dial on the front of the machine behind the accessory tray, pick from one of the quilting stitches. they do make a free motion quilting tool ( I think they call it a hoop), but it just sets on top the material and helps you guide your material thru the machine. Hope this helps

I can not remember how to lower the feed dogs on my Husqvarna quilt designer and I can not find my manual


I think the Quilt Des. is the same as the Designer 1 (which is what I have) and the lower feed dogs is a serrated dial (looks like part of a circle sticking out of the machine) located on the lower front of the free arm about 2 inches to the right of in line with the needle. You turn the dial towards the left to lower the feed dogs and to the right to raise them.

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.
