Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

1 Answer

Designer 1 stops sewing in the middle of long run of decorative stitch

It worked fine for about 30 minutes, then it stopped and started making a whirring noise. I've been all through the books, cleaned, changed, and rebooted everything, still no sewing, just whirring. If I can't get this fixed I'm going back to Bernina! Any suggestions other than throwing off the pier?

Sounds like the motor belt came off the machine, your description makes that sound exactly like what the problem is.

I am having problems with my decorative stitches. If the decorative stitch needs the "S" foot, the stitch does not sew correctly. Is ther a way to correct this? A reset button or something?

Check the manual - are you using the settings recommended for the s foot? Are you using the proper thread? How about the tension 0 is it properly set for the size and thickness of thread being used?

How to fix decorative stitches for sewing machine.

Make & Model??? Sounds like the stitch selector mechanism is stuck. If it's a mechanical machine, you can try oiling the mechanics of the stitch selector with Tri-Flow Synthetic Oil and then heat with hand-held hair dryer.

Singer Touch-tronic 2000 makes loud humming/buzzing noise, stitch selector lights quit working, needle bar stopped moving.

Sounds like you've got a thread jam going on in the bobbin case area. Good cleaning and a new needle will probably fix it. See:

All of a sudden my machine stopped working; it only makes a squeezy sound but like when you're starting a motorcycle an keep swinging it.

If manually turn your hand wheel and needle can move and stitch, most likely your motor belting is loose or broken.

Noisy bobbin bounces in case

If you just had serviced a month ago I would take back and tell them to fix the problem you did not have before they serviced it, or try calling maybe then can advise over the phone.
