Question about Husqvarna Huskylock Computerized 910

1 Answer

Stitches don't feed properly

I don't know what happened, but all of a sudden the stiches on my huskylock 905 won't feed properly. I tried re threading several times, i know it is threaded properly. I tried adjusting the differential feed and nothing works. It just bunches up stitches on the finger. If I put fabric through it will overlock but will bunch up unless I tug on it. It was working properly last time I used it so I don't understand. Please help! All the settings are set to default, normal.

Remove the foot and the needle plate. Check the area where the stitches are formed to see if there are any rough edges on the plate or stitch finger. Sometimes you will find a crack in the plate that is hidden under the foot. While the foot is up, the gap closes but when it is lowered and fabric is trying to feed the crack opens and the rough edge won't allow it to advance.

Huskylock 905, bought new, just love it. Changed thread, first time ever the blue looper keeps breaking. Rethreaded x 20. Still breaking. Sounds good, cleaned regularly with canned air, etc. Help!

Hello Christine,
Since I can not be there with you to guide you, here is video showing the threading Detailed How to Thread Viking Huskylock 905 Serger
However a few additional tips:
1. Make sure to use good quality thread.
2. Make sure to use fresh thread. Thread does have a shelf life.
3. Make sure that the tension, stitch length, and blade position are at the correctly set for the type of stitch required.
4. Make sure that the 'lower looper' thread is sitting "over" the 'upper looper' and "over" the 'upper looper thread'. This is VERY important.
5. Make sure that the threads are not caught-up/wound-up/stuck around anything.
This should solve that phantom challenge. Please let me know how the stitching works out, or come back with more information/questions
Please give me a thumbs up if this was helpful.
Happy serging

Replace needle on a Huskylock 905

Look in your owner's manual for needle replacement procedure. You have to unscrew the small screw holding the needle.
Be careful that the new needle is properly seated before screwing it tight. Otherwise, you might end up with it slightly askew.

I am using the walking foot doing top stiching on a quilt and have set the stitch on 4 and when sewing medium speed the stichs are not what I have set it for. They come out super small and I am not sure...

Do you have the proper walking foot for your machine? Make sure the pressure foot is moving up and down freely. And check to see that the feed dogs are coming up above the needle plate at least 1MM (almost as high as a dime) If they don't, remove the needle and check for any lint build up between the feed dog teeth. If they still don't come up above the needle plate, they might have to be adjusted.

I have the huskylock 905 and it is running great--but-- the seam easily spreads apart after sewing. I have adjusted all of the tensions in different areas and it looks great until you hold the fabric and...

The left needle thread tension is the problem if the seam can be pulled open. Check the threading and tension on this needle, you may find that the stitch looks okay on the top but on the underside the left needle thread is actually lying against the right needle stitching.

Check the left needle tension device is working, clean it according to the manual instructions, rethread and ensure it is set to the normal number (probably 5), then test again and see if its still happening. If so the tension device is probably faulting and will need a service.

Reading your description again, if the whole seam is pulling apart fully, then all the tensions are too loose. Either way, I'd take it to the Husqvarna dealer for a service, all machines benefit from one at least every 2 years.

Suddenly my brother xl-2220 is sewing strangely! The top stich is fine, no tensio issues, but when I look at the bottom stitch it isn't right! The stitch is very loose and looks like the pattern a snake...

totally rethread, and do this test, rethread with the presser foot up, pull the thread it should feed smoothly, now lower the presser foot, pull thread, it should barely move. This will seat your thread in the tension discs, Also, don't be afraid to change your needle often.

My 905 Huskylock was stitching just fine. I changed the thread last night by tying on new threads but one of the knots got caught in the tension plates. I cut it out and rethreaded the machine. It will...

It just may be that you haven't seated the thread in the tention disc, put on hand on each side of the disc when threading and push down to be sure its seated, I don't reccomed that you just 'tye' the treads to change colors, may I suggest that you practice threading your machine, it will come as second nature and really is very easy to thread

Sounds like the feeding mechanism is having problems. The feed stepper motor is probably getting reset telling the feed dogs to move up and down rather than backward and forward. Suggest you 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.

If your machine is hard to turn you need to look for threads which are bunched up around moving parts or it needs oil badly. This, combined with skipping stitches, indicates a need for a technician to adjust the timing and generally service the machine.
