Question about Husqvarna Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Husqvarna viking designer ruby error message says "Machine needs to rest. Wait a moment and touch OK when it is enabled."

There is a noise that is very hard to describe. Almost like a top spinning/grinding. The machine will quit unexpectedly or will make that noise and then I get the error message above. The needle needs to be raised and then the machine seems to jolt and then continues on embroidering.

SOURCE: help setting Viking Designer I machine for free motion quilting

I assume you are doing free motion quilting? Use the V Menu, choose the first stitch. If you are using the Q Sensor foot or the spring free motion foot, go into the Set menu, hit "More" twice then turn On for either the Q Foot or Free motion. Make sure you have Needle Down turned on (top right-hand button on the left side above the needle). You might need to loosen the top tension by one or two clicks - first screen of the Set menu, under the picture that looks like DNA. A Size 90 needle is probably best and if the quilt is difficult to move about you might like to either use the Sewing Advisor to set for Heavy fabric or lessen the upper presser foot pressure - Set menu once again, next picture after the DNA. I have never had to do this with my D1 but I know some other people have. Get back if things are not working well for you.

SOURCE: Husqvarna Viking Designer 1 keeps breaking needles

The threading may be out of the channels. Rethread. Put in a fresh needle. Make sure you are using an embroidery needle and a new one for each new project. You can't use YLI bobbin thread. It stinks. If all this doesn't help, take it in to be checked These work great when there is not thread stuck in the bobbin case and it is threaded properly. If all is well, it will go like gangbusters.

SOURCE: Husqvarna Viking Designer I breaking needles

Dls8864's suggestion was a very good suggestion - make sure the metal stitch plate is pushed all the way to the back. Also make sure that the thread is feeding freely - if it is catching on something it can cause the needle to be pulled aside and make it break. Does the design fit properly inside the hoop you are using? If the foot and/or needle strike against the side of the hoop, that will cause a breakage. Is the bobbin thread okay - not making a bird's nest underneath?

SOURCE: The touch screen will not

Hi, this is a common problem to any touch screen. Touch screens has lesser life than the machine. You screen has gone bad, and you may have to replace it. There is no troubleshooting guide. And there is nothing wrong with your machine. Just that the touch screen has gotten old and not working.

SOURCE: machine will not sew correctly

Take it in and have them do a once over. Something could have been knocked out of adjustment during sipping.

Machine needs to rest message


When you see this message, wait until the OK message is enabled. Tap the OK button and then resume sewing. This message occurs often enough to be listed in the manual under Pop-up messages in both the Sewing and Embroidery section. (That starts on the last few pages of each of these "chapters".) Turning off the machine while this message is displayed may cause on issue with the on-board computer.

For the Husqvarna Viking Designer Diamond Royale, you can find the manual on the product page: http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/en-US/Machines/DESIGNER-DIAMOND-Royale . The direct link to the manual is http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/getattachment/Machines/DESIGNER-DIAMOND-Royale/Designer_Diamond_Royale_manual_ENG.pdf.aspx . The pop-up for the Machine needs to rest is shown on pages 4-26 and 8-14 (pages 74 and 123 of the PDF). The Designer Ruby Royale has the messages on pages 4-24 and 8-14 (70 and 116 of the PDF). The manual for this machine is here: http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/SiteMedia/Products/Machines/-%20DESIGNER%20RUBY%20Royale/Manual/Ruby_Royale-manual-EN.pdf .

I hope this helps. If the message comes up after a few minutes of sewing (under 5), I would recommend that you consider cleaning the bobbin area. Sometimes a flossing swab can help remove debris that has gotten into the corners below the bobbin. If that doesn't help, your machine may need to be serviced.

I have a Viking designer ruby machine. I am trying to embroider a name. I have the right hoop and the design fits the hoop and I keep getting an error message.


Sometimes machines will not work because even though the hoop appears large enough, there is not enough leeway for the presser foot to maneuver inside the hoop. This is a common issue with embroidery machines. The probably answer is to either shrink the design or use a larger hoop.

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


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:

This is usually a bad transformer. If the machine is less than 5 yrs. old it is covered under the mfg. warranty. You need to take it to an authorized dealer.

My needle bar fell off my designer ruby


If the needle bar has come off, you need to take your machine in for service. This needs to be corrected by a technician. Particularly for a Husqvarna Viking machine which has a very specific warranty.

My designer diamond gives me a message that machine needs to rest ,but I have not used it in over 24 hours. I press the ok button but it continues to give me the same message.


It is either the motor that needs replacing or the power supply. I've seen both. There is an updated power supply that was recently recommended by Viking. These parts should still be covered by the Manufacturer Warranty (provided you are the original owner and purchased from an Authorized Viking Dealer). Take the machine to an Authorized Viking Dealer. If it is still warranty, you should only be charged for the service/labor for the repair. You can find a local dealer by checking the Viking website at http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us and going to the Locate a Dealer link.

Good luck. I know how frustrating this can be.
