I can't find a threading diagram for the 100 but this one is for several other husq models, so could be very close for your friends.

Make sure that the bobbin is going into the bobbin case as per the diagram and is into the tension spring. The bobbin needs to turn anticlockwise when you pull on the thread tail when looking at the bobbin inside the case.

There is also a little springlatch on the bobbin case, you need to hold this to release it from the rotary hook to take out. If this isn't working correctly, it will pop out so you'd need to replace the bobbin case.

Now check the top threading too. ALWAYS raise the pressure foot to open up the tensions. And turn flywheel towards you until needle is at highest position. Now follow the threading diagram ensuring the thread does into each eyelet, then down the needle bar and into the needle eye.

Check tension knob number, should be between 4-6, usually 5.

Raise bottom thread manually through the needle plate by holding top thread tail and turning flywheel towards you through one revolution, catching the bottom thread and pulling it up through the hole in the needle plate.

Make sure that you have a new needle in, flat shank to the back, and the right size for fabric you wish to sew, sharp for wovens, ball point for knits.

Now select your stitch, place fabric under foot, lower pressure foot and while holding both threads behind the foot, start stitching. Hopefully, it will now sew for you.

If you can't get the bottom thread to come up at all then its likely that the timing is out and it will need a service.

    Awesome Robin, glad to be of assistance. Mostly problems are caused by incorrect threading, damaged or wrongly wound or wrong way bobbins, tension issues or blunt needles. But when you are struggling to get a machine to go, its sometimes easy to miss something.

Be sure to clean out any stray fibers or threads in the bobbin area. Make sure the bobbin is smooth and doesn't have nicks or scratches.

Why is bobbin tread jamming on my husqvarna viking juliett sewing machine

Most of the time, you should rethread the machine, take the bobbin out and put it in again and change the needle. Generally if it is jamming under the fabric, it is because something is wrong with the top ie rethread the machine.

Thread bunching up around bobbin

If you do not have a user guide, you might want to find one. Try ebay or have an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer order you one. In fact I would find your nearest authorized Husqvarnia Viking dealer and visit them with you machine. They should be able to help you and usually are very helpful even if you didn't buy the machine from them. If they determine it is correctly threaded and the bobbin is ok, have it serviced by an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer or have them send it to Husqvarna Viking (SVP) Technical Service Dept in Tennessee for service. The machine should give you years of good performance.

Use only genuine Husqvarna Viking bobbins.

To find an authorized dealer near you, check the Husqvarna Viking website -

Good luck.

I am having trouble with my bobbin . When I put into the sewing machine and begin to sew the cotton just bunches up and jams . Any suggestions

Here are a couple of things to try.

* Un-thread your machine and remove your bobbin. Clean any loose thread or lint out of your
bobbin case. Re-thread your machine, reinsert and re-thread your bobbin.

* Change your bobbin
There could be a nick along the edge of your bobbin spool that’s catching your thread as you

* When you start to sew a seam, grasp the upper and bobbin thread tails. Hold them back
and out of the way as you sew your first couple of stitches. This will keep them from getting
caught in your machine.

Hope this helps.

Needle jamming, threads all screwed up underneath, tension change

Try another authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. Sounds like the hook/needle timing is off or the hook height. Or you could ask them to ship it back to Viking for them to do the repair. Check the Husqvarna Viking website for another dealer closest to you. You also might want to report the company to Viking. They do have to adhere to certain standards in order to keep their dealership.
