Make sure you are using the correct bobbin, and that it was threaded properly. Check needle and plate to make sure there are no nicks. Clean all fuzz from the bobbin area. Always thread needle with needle down.

This is a design you have successfully sewn prior? Check available memory... go FileManager-> QuickHelp-> MyFiles, it will show available memory. Or could be the file is corrupt, load new copy into machine.

How minutes does it take to sew, design? I'm wondering if you have utility power issue<?>. May be try running machine off a properly sized UPS.

Or could be machine failure. May be try a different design file that you know worked prior.

Tension of lower thread In most special sewing cases it is sufficient to adjust only the upper thread tension. Rarely do you need to adjust the lower thread tension. If it is necessary to adjust the tension of the lower thread, take out the small screwdriver from the accessory box. Fit it in the larger screw on the thread tension spring and turn it not more than 1/10th of a turn to the left if the thread tension is too tight, to the right if it is too loose.

Use a zig-zag so the stitching will not pop when the fabric stretches.

Husqvarna Viking has the text instructions and for a couple of cover-stitch options on the Huskylock 936 page: . The link to these instructions are here: . There is also a video for setting up a triple cover stitch in the How-To tutorial. Note: the video requires Adobe Flash Player to run. The manual has a section on the cover stitch starting at page 40. This is available here:$FILE/Huskylock_936_manual_EN.pdf .

I hope the steps in one of these files helps you set up the serger.

Raise the foot! Hours of frustration and this fixed the triple beep when trying to wind the bobbin.

You had it serviced for this issue specifically?... and they did/said what?

From 300 manual;
Note: Before plugging in, check to ensure that the foot control is of type "FR4".

So you have a new FR4 type pedal and it does not work?

It does work using RUN/STOP button at selected sewing speed?

Hello Tucker
Make sure that the USB stick is firmly attached to machine. Refer to pages 175 and 176 of the Owner's Manual which can be found at this link:

The Knowledge Centre starting on page 82 of Manual will also provide additional information.

The machine should have the latest update as well to insure that all the 'help' menus are available to you.

Please give me a 'thumbs up'

Happy Stitching

The Designer II should not be oiled by the user. As with most computerized sewing machines, it's got a sealed bearing system. You do need to clean the bobbin area and the space under the bobbin case. See page 65 of the user manual to open stitch plate to clean the bobbin area and feed dogs. Next remove bobbin case holder and bobbin case to clean under there. Sometimes the interdental brushes can get some of the lint that the sewing machine brush misses.

The manual for the Husqvarna Viking Designer II is available on the product page: . The current link to the manual is .

I hope this helps.
