Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

Open Question

I just bought the 360 x 350 hoop for my year old Diamond. However, after calibration when I am supposed to connect the hoop, it will not center the design (off by about 3.5 inches) and if I try to begin the design, it claims that the design is outside the hoop area, which it clearly is not. I do not think that the arm itself has been correctly calibrated to accept this large hoop. Nothing happens.

SOURCE: 180E Hoop problem

Joan, there are 3 micrositches on your embroidery unit arm. these switches are depressed when you attach the hoops, it appears from your comments that one switch is not functioning. This could be simple, it is out of alignment or more complex it is broken. Either way you need to take it to a professional for repair.

Make sure that the red disk (smaller than a floppy) on the underside of your embroidery unit has been removed. Remove and discard the red disk. It is used for shipping purposes only. Joyce

SOURCE: pfaff 2124 can't select a design

Be sure your embroidery card is in the side slot BEFORE you turn on your machine. If you are using a pre-loaded card, you would hit the "hoop" button first. This will move the embroidery portion. Then punch in the design number. If you are using a personal card, make sure your design was actually transferred to the card. The instructions in the book are TERRIBLE!

Good luck!

SOURCE: Embroidery arm misaligns design, but not on a

Firstly check that the embroidery arm is not hitting against something as it travels around. Even a very slight bump and put things off. However, most registration problems are caused by incorrect hooping or insufficient stabilising, or a combination of both. Even using the same fabric and same stabiliser you will not necessarily get the exact same sew-out results if there is slight variation in the amount of tension on the stabiliser. There are lots of tips out there for better hooping and stabilising, but my favourite is to hoop the stabiliser firmly then turn the hoop over and put 1" or 3/4" wide masking tape half-and-half over the edge of the hoop and onto the stabiliser on all four sides. This stops the stabiliser from moving about at all. Try it and see how it goes.

How do I add a hoop size to my designer diamond deluxe? I added it to the 5D.

The hoop size will automatically appear on your Designer Diamond Deluxe for selection as the embroidery arm is attached and the design is chosen.
If the correct hoop size is not appearing at this time, your machine may require updating to include this new hoop size.

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.

Embroidery arm won't park or go in position on hoop to embroider

You may need to have the embroidery unit serviced. The slide rods in the embroidery unit will get dirty over time and must be cleaned and lubricated. If not, the mechanism can not slide freely and you will be unable to keep the unit calibrated while stitching a design.
You could attempt to disassemble and clean it yourself, but if you bring it to a repair center in pieces or improperly assemble your repair is going to cost a lot more than it will if you go today.

Pr600 shunts over on big designs

You can try to calibrate the hoops by having the machine turned off and the largest hoop and smallest hoop ready hold down the start/stop button and the needle theader button and turn the machine on while holding those in, you should get a different screen that say a/d test in the upper left corner, put the largest hoop on the machine being shure the screws are tight and hit the l button on the upper right side the numbers next to the button will change, then put the smallest hoop on and hit the ss button once the thats done turn off the machine and on again and it will start normally and try your designs again if that doesnt work take it to a brother service center/ dealer and tell them to check your x-axis position

Needle sticking on hoop

When you switch the machine on with the embroidery unit on, it is suppose to calibrate itself and move the bottom left position. If not, the problem lies with the embroidery unit. If the machine is still under warranty your dealer should fix it free of charge.
