The black plastic ring must be put back on with it oriented correctly. It can be a bit tricky, but experiment different ways.

Another small part may have come off too. If you can't get it, a Viking tech can do it for you without much trouble.

I'm sewing on a husqvarna 1100. After winding a bobbin a tiny black semi-circle flew off. Now the machine refuses to sew...only want to wind bobbins. Is this be something small that I can fix?

Hello Kitty
The 'tiny black semi-circle' sounds like the bobbin winder or a part of it. That 'little' part has to go back onto the bobbin winder, or else the bobbins will over-fill. However, if the bobbin winder (the 'thing' that holds the bobbin in place while winding) is pushed toward the bobbin spindle ... pull it back and the machine will 'let' you sew. But still no winding bobbins. Refer to pages 10 and 11 of your manual, or download it for free from:
The part that came off, should be installed to factory specifications which a qualified technician will be able to instal.
Hopefully this will let you finish what you started.

Please give me a thumbs up if this is helpful.

I just inherited another Huqvarna (this is a model 630). It was working great until I wound a bobbin on it. After I removed the filled bobbin the machine won't move the needle up and down (but the bobbin...

I do not know the Husqvarna Viking 630. However, I have used the Viking 6690 and it has a similar on-the-side bobbin winding routine. I suspect that you failed to move the bobbin winding mechanism back into the sewing position. Look closely at the area around the bobbin winding spindle. It looks like there is a lever below the spindle. Does this need to be moved or rotated? Double check the steps in the manual and check that you did the opposite steps of preparing to wind the bobbin.

On the 6690, you pull out a knob after removing the bobbin. (You push this piece in and put the bobbin onto the now exposed spindle for winding.)

I hope this helps.

I have a Freesia 425 - I have wound the bobbin successfully, but the bobbin will not come off the winder - any explanations

The bobbin is probably cracked. They get that way when bobbins are wound in correctly, or to tight. Just break it off and get new bobbins. Just make sure your theading it correctly when winding bobbins.

Bobbin winder plastic part came off, now it won't

You must put that black ring back on the sewing machine. It will not work without it. There is a groove in the black plastic part that lines up with the black metal "fin" that is in the middle of the bobbin winder. Put the "fin" in the 12 O'clock position and line the groove up at 12 O'clock as well and push it onto the spindle. It will "click" when you have it on all the way.

The reason it got pulled off is because the thread has too much tension on it as the machine was winding the bobbin and it crushed the center of the bobbin onto the spindle and the black piece that pulled off the machine. If you are winding the bobbin through the needle you must go under the presser foot, (always have the foot in the up position)and the foot must be a metal one and you DO NOT put the thread over the silver button like guide on the right side of the machine to wind the bobbin. That guide is a tension device that is used to put tension on the thread when you use the guides on the rear of the machine instead of the regular path through the needle. If you use the normal thread path through the needle and that button like tension device, it creates too much tension on the thread and wraps it too tightly on the bobbin, some it even breaks in half. You can also have bad stitching even if you get the bobbin off the machine because it can distort the shape of the bobbin which can cause it not to spool properly so you sewing tension of the bobbin is compromised.

Can't put a bobbin on the winder Husqvana Viking 6020

Is this a Designer 1 or a #1? There is no moving lever on the pin of a Deigner 1,they are fixed. If it's a #1, use sewing machine oil or Triflow. NEVER use 3 in 1 oil. It will gum up and cause problems later on.

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.

Bobbin winder is only thing that works

What model are you talking about? For my older Husqvarna machine you had to pull the bobbin winding bit out to wind the bobbin, then push it back in when you were done.
