Question about Husqvarna Sewing Machines
You might check your rear encoder - this is the one mounted to the bottom of the roller base. If it is not making contact or is not plugged in correctly on both ends your machine will have this issue. This encoder could need to be replaced. This mostly affects the regulated stitch mode, but can also affect constant stitiching as well.

The overload message is usuall due to a bind in the mechanical function of the machine. When the motor has an extra "load" caused by something like a tight belt or dry bearing, it "overloads" the motor and the error message is displayed. It is doubtful your problem is computer related. Either way a trip to your service tech is required. If you continue to sew with it, you do run the risk of possible damage to some other parts of your machine. The computer portion of your Husqvarna is guaranteed for 5 years and the mechanical parts carry a 20 or 25 year guarantee depending on when you purchased your machine. A copy of your bill of sale from a Husqvarna Viking dealer or a stamped warranty card is the proof of purchase needed to obtain warranty replacement of parts. Labor is only guaranteed for 1 year.

just a thought but maybe your bobbin thread is wound on to loose,try to rewind it holding onto the thread to give a tigher tension while going onto the bobbin

SOURCE: Raise feed dog
I have a different model Viking with a feed dog button to the left of the power button. When it's pressed down, the feed dog stays in the "down" position. Press it again to bring the feed dog up.

I had this same problem, on my Designer Diamond. I blew it out with an air can and that didn't work, but then I decided to turn it off, then back on and start sewing a line in reverse. That seemed to fix it. My machine is working fine now.
