Feed dogs go up and down but not forward and

Sounds like the feeding mechanism is messed up. If turning it on and off does not resolve the issue, you'll need to have it serviced by a certified Husqvarna Viking service technician. If you are the original owner it may still be under warranty. SE's have a 5 year electronic parts warranty and 20 year mechanical warranty. However, you will need to have it serviced by a Husqvarna Viking dealer. 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.

Husqvarna Designer Jade 35, says it needs to rest and won't sew.

Question edited for clarity. Question moved from Cars and Trucks. There is not much on this, and you will probably need dealer service and cleaning. ..

How to tread Viking Husqvarna h class 500 r

I can't find a Husqvarna Viking H Class 500 R. There is a 500E. Make sure that the presser foot is up and the needle is in the highest position. Use the hand wheel to move the needle by turning the wheel towards you. All machines follow a move from right to left, down, up, down threading pattern. Place the spool on the appropriate spool pin and put on the spool pin cap. First guide the thread around the thread guide to the left of the spool pin and then pull it down along the groove. Continue running the thread down the groove and then around the inside of the tab at the bottom. Bring the thread up to the thread take-up lever. Pass the thread through the thread take-up lever from right to left. Insert the thread in the left-most groove and bring it down to the thread guide. Guide the thread into the thread guide above the needle. To use the needle threader, lower the presser foot. Otherwise, push the thread through the eye of the needle from front to back. See the manual if you are using a vertical spool or a double needle. The needle threader can't be used with a size 60 needle or the multi-needle options. For inserting the filled bobbin, raise the needle. Open the bobbin cover plate by pressing the release button to the right while pushing the left corner of the plate. Place the bobbin on the pin of the bobbin case with the bobbin rotating counter-clockwise when the thread is pulled gently. Pull the thread through the slot slightly to the left of the 6 o'clock position (12 hour clock) and then to the left. Gently hold the bobbin with a finger and pull the thread the second slot (near 8 o'clock). Pull out about 6" of thread heading towards the rear of the machine and replace the bobbin cover plate. The manual for the H-Class 500E is available here: . The current link to the manual is . See page 11 (page 13 of the PDF) for threading the top thread. Page 15 (page 17 of the PDF) has the section on inserting the bobbin. I hope this helps. Cindy Wells

Can my old machine be fixed

If you are getting smoking and a burning smell DO NOT use it. It is a SERIOUS fire hazard. Yes, it is probably a burnt out set of brushes in the motor or the motor itself. You also could have a problem with the pedal itself. it could be sticking in a pedal down position causing the continuous running of the motor. I would suggest you take both to Good repairer and he will be able to give you a price for repair. 50 is a good age and parts might be difficult to find. Keep in mind, once you get 3 or 4 quotes, it might be cheaper to replace rather than repair.

Husqvarna Viking Designer Jade 35 Sewing and Embroidery Machine keeps saying rest. I can't get rid of it hit ok and it comes right back.

Our sewing Expert Cindy Wells posted this In the manual for yours as well. If you can't clear it, you will need dealer service. It may need cleaning and lubrication to reduce strain. Machine Needs to Rest If you are sewing on very heavy fabric or if the machine is blocked when sewing, the main motor can get overloaded. The pop-up message will close when the main motor and power supply is secure.

My Jade 20 sewing machine is not working. When I step on the foot control, nothing is happening. There is no error message.

Try using the START/STOP button. If that works then the issue is with the foot control.
