Husquvarna Viking Rose thread error

When I start up my viking rose, for first 15 minutes, it auto stops giving the thread error on the screen. I use the $8 spool of thread and quality of thread is not problem. I have not found anything to help. Any info would be great

    I am having the same problem. It stitches 4 stitches and the warning comes on. If I stop pressing on the pedal for a second and start up again, I get another 4 stitches and it stops again with the warning. After about 15 minutes or so, it keeps going and I no longer get the warning. I have tried the "slow" speed, but I can't go any slower yet it still only stitches 4 and I still get the warning. I see a wire through the front and it moves...sometimes the thread has looped around it and sometimes not. I am not sure I am threading the machine correctly at the point where it goes by the tension wheel. But again, once the machine is "warmed up" it sews without the warning.

    Are the thread holders supposed to be little nubs? If so, how do you get the spools of thread to stay on?

You need to see if the take up spring is moving freely when you are in these first 15 minutes (I assume the machine runs ok after 15 mins).
The take up spring is on the left side of the tension assy. When the thread is pulled up toward the take up lever, you should be able to look through the slot in the front of the machine and see a copper colored wire move up and down as the thread is pulled and released. This is the end of the take up spring. The spring is attached to the thread breakage sensor. If its movement is sluggish, it may cause the machine to falsely indicate the thread broke.
Sewing very slowly may cause this problem to stop. If the machine runs as minimal speed and then gives thread break indication when speeding up, the sensor interrupter is not moving fast enough and should be cleaned and lubed.

    Try turning the power on and let the machine sit for a half hour. Do not attempt to run it during this time. If it still gives the problem, I don't know. If it's ok, it does warm up and will most likely need a new main circuit board.

    I should ad, either way, the machine needs to go in to a qualified technician.

Blinking bobbin on info display on Husqvarna Rose 600

Do you mean the symbol above the scissors on the infodisplay? If that is the blinking indicator, then the top thread has broken or the spool is empty. If the top thread continues to break, then the problem could be the age of the thread or the thread catching on a spot on the spool. (Thread degrades under most light. So the time it was on display at the store or sitting in your sewing area can be a factor.) Check the spool for rough spots. Make sure that the top thread is threaded correctly. Try a new needle; sometimes the eye of the needle can have sharp burs or edges. Check the top thread tension. Look at the hole in the stitch plate; if it is chipped or damaged, replace it. A damaged stitch plate can also cause breakage of the bobbin thread.

Husqvarna Viking has the manual for the Rose 600 on the machine support page: . The direct link to the manual is . See page 10 a picture of the top thread icon. See page 56 for the trouble-shooting guide. A stand-alone trouble-shooting guide here is also available: . Husqvarna Viking uses same manual for the 600 and the 605.

I hope this helps.

I have a 830 after I sew 6-8 stitches it stops & screen shows spool meaning it needs more thread when it has full spool on

could be the thread sensor is dirty or defective. Be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread.

What do I do my husqvarna rose beeps when start to sew in the display window the presser foot flashes what's wrong?

It thinks the presser foot is in the up position. Will need to be repaired by experienced service tech (preferably a certified Viking service tech). There is a clamp that may just be out of place or it could be more involved. Good luck.

My Husqvarna diamond top thread keeps breaking while doing loop embroidery. It sews a couple of stitches and then you can hear when the thread breaks. Ive tried changing the needle and bobbin, and cleaning...


Primary causes of upper thread breakage:

-- misthreading: pull all the thread off and thread again, using the manual, step by step. Read each step aloud before you do it. (sounds dumb, but helps.) (And make sure you thread the takeup lever!)

-- thread has wrapped itself around a thread guide or spool pin from one of the breaks. Take the spool off the machine before rethreading.

-- bad or damaged needle. Replace with the right size for the fabric, turned correctly (backwards needles skip stitches)

-- dirty machine, especially in the bobbin case area: review cleaning instructions and do it, using brush and vacuum only

-- bad/cheap thread: should not be slubby or break easy. Try another spool.

-- top thread tension too tight. 4 is normal for most fabrics, most stitches.


1) do a light cleaning (brush and vacuum) every day you sit down to sew.

2) replace the needle if you hear it hit metal, if you've got a really bad thread jam, if you see it deflect as you sew (for instance, sewing over the side seam on jeans when hemming). Replace every 3-8 hours of actual stitching time anyhow.

3) buy good quality thread

4) when your machine isn't sewing right, stop; take all the thread off of/out of the machine (bobbin out of bobbin case, spool off spool pin) and give it a quick cleaning. Rethread from scratch, carefully. If that doesn't fix it, do it again, then replace needle and rethread one more time, manual in hand (yah, even if you've threaded it 8 million times before). #4 is curative about 98% of the time. The other 2% often requires professional attention.

I bought a Husqvarna Rose at a yard sale. The lady told me she used it only a few times because the thread broke icon always pops up and she has to start over again. I tried it and sure enough it stitches...

Hi. You need to start with getting the manual for your machine. I found one at

Then, check the threading diagrams to make absolutely sure it's threaded properly. Check the troubleshooting section of the manual.

Hope this helps!

My Viking Rose sewing machine starts and stops and beeps at me to add thread which it doesn't need!! Drives me up the wall crazy. I can't sew with it stopping and beeping at me all the time. Help!!

The Rose has a sensor on the presser bar assembly that is giving you the grief. The machine thinkss the presser foot is in the raised position.There is a small metal flat spring that has gone bad and causing the error. Find an autorized service center to repair the problem.

After a few stitches my machine quits

The problem you are having is with the sensor on the top tension unit. There is a sensor that registers the movement of the spring which lets the machine know that it's sewing. When the spring either sticks or the sensor moves out of position because of vibration, the machine "thinks" that the top thread is broken. The machine needs to be taken apart and the top tension spring checked to see if it still has enough pressure to return to it's starting position, or to see if the sensor is in it's correct position. A trip to your service tech is required

Mc 5700 problem

Check for loose threads or fluff in upper tension unit and bobbin case tension gauged to 14g resistence. Otherwise, service time I'm afraid. Have it serviced by an authorized Husqvarna Viking Service Technician. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page -

Good luck.
