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.

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.

I just got a Husquvarna Viking, Rose machine, i do not know how old it is, but i can't find the model number, and i wuld also like to see how the bobbin case should look.

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.

I own a husqvarna viking rose sewing machine. The tension when embroidering wants to make the thread break when it moves to a different part of the design. What can I do?

Sounds like tension issue. You might want to take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service. 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.

Bobbin Winder won't release

i have a husqvarna rose, i has the same problem when i started using my machine. i was suggested to not wind the bobbin so fast. the reason it gets stuck is because the thread is so tight on the bobbin it actually makes the bobbin a tiny bit smaller, making it hard to get off again. if you dont wind it so fast, it doesn't get so tight.


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.
