Question about Husqvarna Designer I
Please, take this machine to an authorized technician before you attempt to set the timing on your own. An authorized technician will have a device to quickly tell you whether or not the timing is incorrect. If you change the timing yourself and that isn't your problem, you will spend far more money getting 2 problems fixed than the one original problem.
If the machine is making what I describe as a chattering sound, you may be able to clean the bobbin case and the ledge that it sets on and the problem will go away. This bobbin case should be operated with no lubrication. Some repairmen recommend " a drop of oil to make it run quieter". This generally makes it chatter louder. If there is any lube on the bottom of the black bobbin case, wipe it off and wipe the ledge that it rests on.
By the way, if the needle is hitting the raceway, you will be able to see the marks where it is hitting. In a Viking machine, this is normally caused by the "needle to hook clearance", not timing.

Actually sounds to me like the bobbin is not seated correctly. Make sure the thread "clicks" into the tension slot.
