Question about Husqvarna Sewing Machines
Its likely this machines feedogs have either never been lowered or not lowered for a long time. Thus the old oil has hardend and is causing the mechanism to freeze up. A tech would take the bottom cover off, follow the connections from the lowering knob, button or switch to the feeddogs and putting a bit of oil or penetrant on each moving connection. Don't force anything, gently tap where you beleive its sticking and turn, push or flip the switch, knob or button slowly bit by bit, back and forth until they drop. They will work loose then make sure they get a bit of oil again. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Usually a walking foot is for straight forward stitching only.It keeps the many layers from shifting for you. The "hand-look" quilting takes a couple stitches forward then one back. If you look close, you will see about every other stitch is thicker and stands out more.

SOURCE: Husqvarna bobbin thread jamming
Make sure the bobbin thread "clicks" into the tension slot. However, thread nests underneath are usually caused by the top thread, not the bobbin. Make sure your thread is seating itself in the top tension disks. To do this, put the spool on the machine, pull off about 12 or 15 inches of thread, then hold this thread down with one finger on your right hand as you take the thread tail through the threading path with your left hand. When you get to the needle, tug the thread (still holding it down up top) to be sure it seats in the tensions disks. You must also have the presser foot UP while you do this to ensure that the tension disks are open. Watch the first thread guide after the spool as you sew to make sure the thread is not jumping out of there (a common problem with Des1 machines, fixed with SEs - no comfort to you and me!). I have put a small piece of tape across there with the end turned back on itself so no sticky bit is going to catch on the thread.

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.

Interesting. It may be that the "chip" in the machine itself needs to be replaced. This is not a hard task but has to be done by an authorized service technician plus the part has to be ordered from Viking and only authorized dealers can order parts. You might clean the contact points with a pencil eraser but be sure to remove any particles left before inserting it into the machine. Hope this helps. Good luck.
