Not enough info provided but will provide procedure for testing tensions:

Check that it is threaded correctly (both top and bottom) making sure that the upper thread is in the takeup lever. Watch the needle as you slowly turn the handwheel counter clockwise (toward you) and the needle point touches the fabric (make sure presser foot is down). Is the thread still relatively taunt? If it is loose, the upper thread tension unit does not have enough tension. Check the areas where the thread goes and make sure you remove any loose threads or fluff which could be inhibiting the tension discs from closing over the thread. If the tension unit still is not tightening enough, the tension unit may need to be replaced or the circuit board replaced. If everything is ok in the upper thread area, now look at the bobbin area. With no fabric, watch as the needle enters the bobbin area. Does it go down and the upper thread catch the bobbin thread and pulls it to the surface? Check for anything preventing the bobbin thread from being pulled up to the surface through the needle plate. If you have still not been able to resolve the problem suggest you take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service. 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.

Most of the time the bobbin stitch is correct. Occasionally there is a loop in the bobbin thread. Any suggestions as to what this could be?


Is it actually the bobbin thread that loops or is the loop appearing on the underside of the fabric as you stitch? If it is a loop under the fabric, that's usually an indication it is an upper thread issue. Thread irregularities that appear on the topside of the fabric are generally bobbin related.

First thing to try is installing a brand new needle. Verify it is the correct needle for the fabric and thread being used.
All About Needles
Sometimes, the fabric being stitched will "grab" the thread and hold it for a second before releasing and will cause a loop. In this case, a needle with a larger scarf and eye may be helpful.

You might also open the upper tension as much as possible, RAISE the presser foot and run a piece of UNwaxed dental floss through the tension disk a few times to clear out any gunk that may be stuck there. A piece of pearl cotton dipped in rubbing alcohol and squeezed moist/dry will also work.

Remove the upper thread. RAISE the presser foot and rethread the top thread from the beginning. Use only fresh, good quality thread--NO old or bargain bin variety! Try using the same thread in the top and bobbin. Make sure the thread is firmly seated in the tension disk and the thread path is correct. Check that there are no burrs or snags in the thread path that could be catching the upper thread. Especially, check that the thread is not catching on the spool "slit" that holds the thread when in storage. Every time the thread navigates around the thread spool, it could be catching on that slit just enough to cause a loop.

Try changing the bobbin. There could be something amiss with the current bobbin--could be nicked or could even be the wrong bobbin for the machine. Also, make sure the bobbin is loaded and turning the correct direction in the machine.

Set the upper tension to the midway point. This is usually the starting point, although it will probably require some tweaking. Test your stitch and adjust the tension so the upper and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric. Neither thread should dominate one side of the fabric or the other.

Understanding Thread Tension Threads

Last thing to try is a different presser foot.

If you still have the intermittent loop, you might want to take it for service. Could be a problem within the tension disk.

How do I get the thread from the bobbin to the needle?


If your machine is functioning properly, when the needle goes down into the bobbin area, the needle thread will catch the bobbin thread in a loop. (If you gently pull the upper thread tail, you will be able to pull the bobbin loop up above the needle plate.) If your machine is not doing that, then there is something wrong. Make sure the needle is installed correctly and both threads are threaded properly.

Can anyone help me with an idiots guide on engaging the bottom bobbin


Are you asking how to pull the bobbin thread up? Simply hold the thread tail from the top thread and gently handrotate the handwheel toward you. One full circle completes one stitch cycle. The upper thread should hook the bobbin thread and pull up a loop. When that loop appears above the needle plate, gently pull the upper thread tail, enlarging the bobbin thread loop and catch it with a sewing tweezer, pin, or even the point of a scissor blade to pull the rest of the bobbin thread to the top.

Looped threads


Hello Rosemary
Looped thread on the underside are created by the upper thread. Loops on the top of the fabric are created by the bobbin thread. Whichever one is looping, has very little tension. This may be corrected by:
1. Re-threading the upper thread according to manufacturer's specifications.
2. Re-wind bobbin and re-set it into bobbin case and bobbin case area according to manufacturer's specifications.
3. Ensure that the needle is correctly installed and is the correct needle for the sewing machine.
4. Ensure that he bobbin being used is the correct one for the machine.
5. Double check that the tension on the upper thread is at the correct setting.
6. Double check that the tension unit is clean and free of dust, lint or lodged thread/s.
7. Double check that the bobbin tension is correctly set ... if you are comfortable doing so, otherwise leave it for a qualified technician
8. Make sure that he presser foot is down when stitching.
Please let me know how you go.
Happy stitching.

Why wont my needle pick up my bobbin thread


1. Either the needle is smaller than required and does not reach down enough to loop the bobbin thread.2. Or the bobbin thread is not kept out of the shuttle and does not make a loop with the needle thread.

Problems with prolectrix sewin machine


you have to make sure the bobbin thread is positioned right in the middle. When the needle comes down (into the bobbin compartment), you can peer into the bobbin compartment and see a loop of thread (coming out of the needle). You want to catch that bobbin (thread) in the loop of thread (that runs from the needle).

I dont understand what it means by...


I beleive what they are asking you to do is to bring up the bobbin thread to the top of the throat plate( which cover the bobbin area, to do this you hold the top thread end and manually turn the wheel to engage the bobbin thread and bring it to the top of the throatplate, now you should be ready to sew

Hold the tail of the needle thread loosely.  
Turn the hand wheel toward you (counter clockwise) and lowerthe needle into the hole in the plate. 
Turn the hand wheel until the needle rises back up to it's highest position.
Gen
You will see a loop of thread wrapped around the upper thread. 
Open the loop and find the free end of the bobbin thread.  
Voila!
Now you can sew.
