Question about Husqvarna Freesia 415

Open Question

I have a Viking Prelude 360. I have it set for straight stitches, but it seems to be trying to make a side stitch and this is causing the neddle to break. I have be sewing on curtain trim and I don't understand what is wrong. I reran a bobbin, rethreaded the machine. Adjusted the positions for different stitches, It also has a knock when it sews. I can tell that it has hit the plate when it breaks the neddles. Thanks for your help.

SOURCE: No stitches 925D.

Probably your looper timing is off. This is common, and just a necessary evil of sergers. Their tolerances are tight.
The operation of creating a serger stitch is a succession of thread grabing and delivering. One looper grabs a thread and delivers it to the needle and so on.
To check this, turn your handwheel slowly and check to see that the upper looper is meeting the lower looper by passing very close to the indented part at the back of the lower looper (indented part is called the scarf, this is where the looper threads form a lock) If not, it's the looper timing. If they seem to meet properly then check your needle. Is your needle up into the needle clamp all the way? Try a new needle. Even a slight bend to the needle will not allow the loopers to meet and grab or deliver thread. You might check the tensions. Thread has to have some resistance in order for the loopers to do their job,

If your looper timing is off, find a sewing repair person to retime the serger. Don't try it yourself or put this repair off. If the loopers go further out of timing, they might hit something and replacement can be costly.

SOURCE: Machine is skipping stitches

One of the things that can cause this is lint buildup around the back of the hook driver. Open the bobbin cover and look just above the hinge, at the bottom edge of the black hook cover. If lint is peeking out at you, it may be time to have it serviced. You may be able to get most of the lint out if you remove the needle plate and blow onto the back side of the hook area with canned air. Keep the cover open so the lint can come out.
Now I am assuming that you have replaced the needle.

Stick with me and I'll see what I can find out.
In the mean time, verify that you are able to do card E1 stitch 24 and card E2 stitch 27. I think you can, but let me know.

SOURCE: loose bottom stitch on brother se 350

Hi, general rule of thumb:: loops on the top, problem on the bottom.. Loops on the bottom, problem is on the top.. When threading your machine, stop just before you thread your needle, put the presser foot down. Try pulling the thread. If it pulls easily, the thread is not thru the tension wheel right. If it pulls hard, you got it right.

How do I set the dials on husqvarna viking 6000 sewing machine


The "dial" in the back is for decorative stitches which require a "programmer" to be inserted with the stitch formation you want to form. For a straight stitch no cam is required in the back of the machine. The three dials on the front:

Upper Left: Stitch selector
Upper Right: Stitch lenght
Lower: Stitch width

Using the upper left dial select the straight stitch picture
Using the upper right, choose your stitch lenght
Using the lower, choose your needle position, left/center/right

How do sew a straight line on a viking 6360?


You may need to service the machine. One thing to check is the feed teeth are at least 1mm above the needle plate on the highest setting. You can remove the needle plate and check if there is lint keeping the teeth from rising. The upper right knob controls the stitch length set it at 3 for normal sewing. 6 would be a longer stitch.

Can't get the Husqvarna Viking Platinum 775 to do a zig zag


it's very possible that a cam or gear has worn down or broken
inside the machine and also if the sewing machine is computerized
then there could be a problem there, having the machine checked
would tell you for sure.

Ordinary straight stitching/Husqvarna 2000 SL


ordinary straight stitching is normlly the first button (only one) in the stitch selection area. Look for symbol/picture showing a vertical broken line on the displays.

Ordinary straight stitching


When you turn on a #1 Husqvarna Viking the machine defaults all the electronic settings to do a straight stitch at a 2.5mm stitch length, that equates to approximately 10 stitches per inch. The top tension dial sets itself automatically and the only other dial is on the left side of the machine. That dial sets the pressure on the foot that holds down the fabric. It's normal setting is 6.

Shark 384 - how can i get a straight stitch?


with the Shark Euro-Pro X machine, you need to bring the stitch width to zero it's the nob on top of the machine the manual states not to use it wider then 3 with the double needle cause it can break the needle. but either stitch selection "A" or "S" will give straight stitching with width at zero.
