How do I turn off thread portioning on Husqvarna Ruby De Luxe. I don't want to adjust the settings but need to turn this off. Thank you

The upper thread is not moving, thereby just showing bobbin thread

    Perhaps you can give the dealer a call and ask if they can explain the process to you.

FWIW, I was unable to find any information for turning off the thread portioning function. Unfortunately, this appears to be the thread tensioning system, so disabling the thread portioning would be disabling the thread tensioning--something that is critical to sewing. It appears this model may have some issues and perhaps this one is particular to your machine. It may be best to take it for service.

Perhaps this will help:

I am having problems with my Husqvarna Ruby De Luxe thread shredding and would be grateful to receive advice.


Hm, wonder if the tension is not stable that it is an intermittent problem or does it occur where there are points where there is more thread buildup than others? Do you raise the presser foot before threading the upper thread so it will seat in the tension disk properly?

The other things I would look at would be the needle and the thread. Some threads work better than others so you may have to experiment with brands. The same with needles--the thread and needle should be compatible. If the thread is shredding at the needle eye, then it is probably a needle issue. Are you using embroidery needles? Maybe try a different type/size of needle (perhaps a needle with a large scarf). Make sure the thread is not too big for the needle's eye--try a lighter weight thread or a larger needle. Sometimes the thread shreds because the fabric (or stabilizer) is actually cutting the thread strands every time the needle penetrates the fabric.

Different machines seem to favor certain needles and threads over others. Some sewists swear by Superior thread, other sewists have better luck with another brand like Floriani. Ergo, needles--some sewists use only Organ embroidery needles, other sewists will use only chrome plated needles.

It may be a matter of finding what works best with your machine.

I have the Husqvarna Viking designer ruby. It is making huge loops on the underneath side of the fabric. This is during straight stitch on cotton and then on duck cloth. I have cleaned underneath t


Typically, when there are loops on the bottom of the fabric, there is something missed in the upper threading. Make sure when threading:
- the presser foot is in the up position to open the tension disks
- make sure the thread is well "seated" in the tension disks before continuing to the take up bar.
- using the manual follow the thread path carefully
- check to make sure the thread flows smoothly from the spool
- use the correct size spool caps to help the thread flow easily

What is the way to get even top and bottom thread tension. the machine is a Husqvarna 2000 6440


Let me give you a quick lesson in adjusting your tension. First, thread your bobbin and your upper thread with two different colors-it'll make it easier to see exactly what you need to adjust.

Thread your machine with the presser foot UP. The disks that control the tension (thread goes through them) are tightened up if the foot is down.

Change the machine tension with the presser foot DOWN. Because the disks won't be engaged (see above) if the foot is up, the disks won't move.

Start at the middle setting, 3. Go up to tighten, decrease to loosen. Each machine is different, even 2 different machines of the same model. The best thing to do is start at 3 and use a different color in the top and bobbin thread so you can easily see what changes to the tension do to your stitches.

Now use a straight stitch a sew 3 or so inches. Take a look at the top and bottom of the fabric. You don't want to see any (or at least not much) of the other color showing from the other side.

Loops on the bottom of the fabric means you need to tighten (increase) your top tension. If you're stitches on the bottom are causing puckering, then you need to loosen you're top tension. For the most part, you really don't want to touch your bobbin tension-leave that to a repair technician. The factory setting shouldn't be touched except by someone who really knows what they're doing.

Keep sewing a few inches at a time until you have the results you want. Now you're tension is where you need it!

I have a Scandinavia that seems to sew just fine except the bobbin thread is all knotted up. I am sewing on light weight naugahide with upholstery thread and a size 16 needle. thank you.


You may use the upholstery thread in the needle, but not the bobbin. Use standard size thread in the bobbin. If you absolutely need to use the upholstery thread in the bobbin, you will need to adjust the upper and possibly lower tension in order for it to work.

Good Day, On my Designer 1, I have a problem with the embroidery. The bottom thread comes up over the fabric and I don't know how to readjust the tension. Can you help me please ? Thank you very much....


Tension should be adjusted automatically by the machine when embroidery unit is engaged. However, if there is loose threads or fluff in the upper tension unit this could cause the tension discs not to properly close. Using a small brissel brush and remove any loose threads/fluff by brushing between the discs in the upper tension unit with the presser foot in the up position. Also try these tips:

Check that it is threaded correctly (both top and bottom) making sure that the upper thread is in the takeup lever. Watch the needle as you slowly turn the handwheel counter clockwise (toward you) and the needle point touches the fabric (make sure presser foot is down). Is the thread still relatively taunt? If it is loose, the upper thread tension unit does not have enough tension. Check the areas where the thread goes and make sure you remove any loose threads or fluff which could be inhibiting the tension discs from closing over the thread. If the tension unit still is not tightening enough, the tension unit may need to be replaced or the circuit board replaced. If everything is ok in the upper thread area, now look at the bobbin area. With no fabric, watch as the needle enters the bobbin area. Does it go down and the upper thread catch the bobbin thread and pulls it to the surface? Check for anything preventing the bobbin thread from being pulled up to the surface through the needle plate. If you have still not been able to resolve the problem suggest you take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service.

Loosen the upper tension looper thread by turning the dial to a lower number. The upper tension looper is to tight and pulling the lower looper thread up. Also might want to loosen or tighten the left or right needle tensions depending on the results you get. It will be a trial and error exercise to get the correct adjustment between the loopers and needle thread tensions. Otherwise, you might want to take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service.
