Question about Husqvarna Viking 1

1 Answer

I have a E20 Huskystar I was sewing elastic, the machine pulled to many threads into the bobbin case. I pulled out the threads and the thread take up doesn't work now. The machine gets hung up at the midway turning of the needle, it gets stuck then it gets harder to turn and won't take up the thread at all. I have taken it apart and cleaned out everything I could but it still won't bring up the thread when rethreaded.

Thread in the bobbin area can be difficult to get out. Even though you do not see any there is thread wrapped around under the hook area. Shine a flashlight in there and look carefully. Often times you will see a piece of thread. Use tweezers to get it out, pull slowly while turning the wheel by hand. If you notice the thread not coming out, turn the wheel in the opposite direction.

Removing parts in the bobbin area will allow you to get at any thread that is hung up in there. The smallest of pieces can create havoc in there as you may find out. Before removing parts make sure you have a manual in case you forget how to put them back. Remove one piece at time and check for thread right after. No need to remove more than you have to.

SOURCE: Needle Sticks - Huskystar E10

When it feels like the needle is jammed, open the bobbin cover and release the two black retaining levers, one on either side of the bobbin case. The hook cover that is visible will be released. If the machine turns by hand smoothly, you may have a piece of the broken needle, or just a piece of thread stuck behind the hook or hook cover causing the bind. This problem will sometime make you swear that the needle is stuck in something because it will usually bind while the needle is down in the fabric.

SOURCE: Free Motion Sewing - Jams

I don't have a solution, but wanted to remind users of this machine that it does not do the proper free motion action until you reach a certain speed. This information is on page 26 of my manual (older machine, so page no. might have changed with newer manuals). You can stitch at the lower speeds, but it does not "hover" and allow you to move the project swiftly and smoothly.
If you can sew regular sewing without thread/bobbin issues, then it is probably something to do with how you have set/threaded/used the free motion to cause the stoppage. Make sure you have a sharp (i.e. new) needle of the correct size for your thread, that the bobbin thread is the same weight thread as the top thread. Turn on the Needle Down button. There is a Free Motion setting in the Set menu, but I have no idea what it does. I turn it on anyway, just in case! What foot are you using? If you don't have one of the free motion feet (there are quite a few to choose from!) use the embroidery foot (small clear plastic one).

SOURCE: Top thread won't pick up the bobbin thread

re insert the needle, maybe you did not put the needle up as far as it is to go. Make sure the flat side of the needle is to the back of the machine. Without any thread in the machine hand turn the wheel and look to see if the hook of your bobbin would/could catch the thread (to see if timing is right)
then thread the machine and hand turn the wheel and see what it is doing.
Your timing might be off, but I do not think that is likely. Though it is possible that when the needle fell out, it hit something hard, broke, and pushed the machine out of timing. then you need to bring it in.

My sewing machine don't want to work the elastic tread that you use for smocking. I put it on the bobbin. Also, were can I download a free service/ repair manual?


To seek a manual, search the internet for:
Manufacturer + Model + the word "Manual"

Be sure you hand-wind the bobbin with the elastic thread. You may also need to loosen the bobbin tension a bit if the elastic thread is stretching too much while stitching.

Husqvarna Huskystar 207 Sewing Machine not stitching. It won't pull the bobin thread up to sew.


Be sure not to use Singer Needles. They are longer than standard needles. Don't know if this helps, but I did this once on my Huskystar 207 and that is what happened. It also damaged the bobbin thread.

I have a huskystar E20, husqvarna viking sewing machine. I the bobbin winder is not engaging...any suggestions


To answer the posting of: " By cakes_bynich on Mar 20, 2011
I have a huskystar E20, husqvarna viking sewing machine. I the bobbin winder is not engaging...any suggestions" Are you using the right bobbin - class 15 and not 15J? I am having a similar problem and I believe it's because I'm using a bobbin 15J and not the 15. 15J's are just slightly less tall when lying flat next to a 15, and the edges of the 15J are slightly curved inward toward the thread whereas the 15's edge are completely straight and flat. If I hold a 15J just right on the winder, I can get it to engage sometimes. That slight size difference must be the cause. I'm off to pick up some new 15's and will test it out!

My 5 year old Huskystar 216 sewing machine is


Sounds like the hook/needle timing. To check do the following:

With the power off!!
remove bobbin and bobbin case.
push needle all the way to the left.
Turn handwheel toward you watching the needle and bobbin housing hook. The point of the hook should line up right above the eye of the needle.

If not timing, clean bobbin area removing lint and thread.
Check bobbin tension, should get slight resistance when pulling thread.
Make sure using only Husqvarna Viking bobbins -- most are green but they have new colors now. All will have the Husqvarna logo on them (an H). Make sure the bobbin is unwinding in the right direction.

Remove fabric. Pull extra long bobbin thread (about 3 inches). Hold upper thread tail in left hand, turn handwheel toward you for 1 revolution. Is the bobbin thread caught by the top thread and pulled through the opening of the needle plate?

If you are still unable to get a good stitch, take to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for service or have them send to Husqvarna Viking (SVP) Technical Service Dept for repair. A list of dealers close to you can be found at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

Good luck.

Thread frays and breaks when sewing and embroidering.


Make sure that the machine is threaded correctly, that the needle is in properly, that the bobbin case and bobbin are both inserted correctly and that you are not using old thread.

Make sure that there is a new needle in the machine and loosen the top tension about a number

You need to carefully re-thread the machine.

My machines has a shirring foot, so I don;t have the same machine. However, I do not think that elastic thread will work in the bobbin. Have you tried it the other way around? Do you have your manual?
