Question about Husqvarna Designer I

Open Question

Switched machine on the next morning after using it previous day with embroidery hoop. Touch screen just flickers and then stays dark. More flickering and lighting up with lines flickering across if I put my hand closer to the side of the machine (where the dongle goes in). Screen will just not come up. Had used updated embroidery patterns on it which I had downloaded from husqvarna that day.

    I tapped it hard on the side this morning and the screen came up for a little while before flickering and going dark again. Any ideas how to make it stay on.

SOURCE: Husqvarna Viking Designer I breaking needles

Dls8864's suggestion was a very good suggestion - make sure the metal stitch plate is pushed all the way to the back. Also make sure that the thread is feeding freely - if it is catching on something it can cause the needle to be pulled aside and make it break. Does the design fit properly inside the hoop you are using? If the foot and/or needle strike against the side of the hoop, that will cause a breakage. Is the bobbin thread okay - not making a bird's nest underneath?

Hi Jayn.

First check to see if your Husqvarna is still under warranty. If so take it in to the dealer for service.

I just did a little research and found that a recall was issued for some Designer 1s for power supplies overheating. The information on that is found here....

and here....

For additional information, please contact Husqvarna Viking at (800) 446-2333 between 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.

It sounds as if you have gotten hit with an energy spike. I make sure I unplug all of my sewing machines at night for this reason. But let's try a few things.

You said that if you place your hand where the USB goes, it flickers. What happens when you grasp and gently wiggle the USB when it is plugged in? Does it still flicker? If it does it makes me think there is a short or bad ground and needs service by a qualified professional. (basically you are becoming the ground when you touch there.)

Is there any screen brightness adjustment knob that perhaps got moved, bumped or turned by curious little fingers?

I think your best bet considering the value of your machine is to take it in for servicing.

I have a Viking designer ruby machine. I am trying to embroider a name. I have the right hoop and the design fits the hoop and I keep getting an error message.


Sometimes machines will not work because even though the hoop appears large enough, there is not enough leeway for the presser foot to maneuver inside the hoop. This is a common issue with embroidery machines. The probably answer is to either shrink the design or use a larger hoop.

Could need recalibration. There are most likely instructions in your manual. If not, might be a good idea to take it for service.

There are a couple of things to check. First, check to make sure that your machine is on a solid flat and level surface. If the surface is even slightly sagging, your connectors may not be making a complete connection.

Next, you cannot put your small hoop on the machine and turn it on; it will not allow the machine to go to its default position. Turn it on without any hoop attached.

Next, take a look inside the unit where you slide in the hoop. About midway up, you will see three black rectangles in a row; those are the hoop sensors. Those sensors have little plastic "feelers" sticking out to touch a corresponding tab on the hoop to indicated which size of hoop is attached. You can see them if you look sideways. If one or more of those feelers is not sticking straight out, it will cause this problem. GENTLY run your finger over them (you don't want them to break), and make sure that they ARE sticking straight out.

You have probably got the machine set to use a different size hoop. Click on the hoop icon and change it to the size you are using. Hope this helps you.

I bought a new embroidery unit for my designer 1 when I but it on it makes e terible noise and says to slide of hoop and clear position for i . embroidery position'But it won't go into embroidery...


Don't know for sure what is happening, but you should not put on a hoop until you are actually ready to embroider. The unit goes on while the machine is turned off; turn on the machine; it will make a noise; you should get a pop-up on your screen to Calibrate the unit. Touch this button, and the arm moves into position ready. Load your design and choose the correct hoop then put the hoop and project on the machine. Also be sure that your design will fit in the hoop selected.

I have a Do All Quilter's Hoop which I can't use


I'm a bit amazed that a Husqvarna technician was unable to do the minor adjustment to the embroidery arm - he needs to contact Husqvarna headquarters and ask for instructions. Meantime, you can still use your hoop (which by the way is my favourite hoop - it's a little beauty!). Tell your machine you are going to use the Large Hoop (6" x 9.5" or 150mm x 240mm) even though you are really using the 6" x 6" or 150mm x 150mm Do It All Hoop. Provided you have centred your design before loading it on your USb stick or floppy drive, it should work. However, just to reassure yourself, use the Check Size button on your touch screen to test the outside size of the embroidery and be sure it is not going to foul on the hoop borders. (It is the one on the second screen (press More to access this) once your have loaded your design - looks like little double arrows pointing to the corners of a square. Each time you press this button, the needle will zoom to each outer corner of your design in turn.

I have the quilters 150x150 hoop and I need an update to use it, the button on my embroidery machine is grey I think it needs to be dark blue


Dark grey, actually, but you don't need the upgrade. Set the hoop size at the machine for the 150 x 240 hoop and the 150 x 150 hoop will work. Just be sure that the design starts in the centre i.e. don't move it up or down at the machine Embroidery screen. Before you begin sewing, check that the design will fit in the hoop without bumping the sides of the hoop. Use the Check Size button which is on the second screen of the Embroidery Screen (touch More on bottom right of first screen). The Check Size button is the one on the bottom right - the first button to the left of "More". Touch it once, hoop moves to top left of design; touch again hoop moves to bottom left of design; again hoop moves to bottom right; again hoop moves to top right.

Make yourself a note so that when you next take your D1 in for its regular service, get the hoop upgrade done at the same time. You need to have at least version 2.1 of the machine software installed - your tech. can do this for you too. It is a really minor adjustment so should not add much to the service cost. Be sure to take the embroidery unit in too when you go for the service.

Husqvarna Des 1.. won't recognize hoops


The embroidery unit needs to be calibrated. Can only been done by a trained dealer. you can relax, it is not a major issue and shuold not cost you a arm and a leg. Ask the dealer to also calibrate your touch screen and download the working hours on your machine.
