SOURCE: needle up down moves the embroider

It's okay - it's supposed to do that! The Needle Down button has a different function when you are in Embroidery mode i.e. you have the emb. unit attached.
It moves the emb. arm forward for two reasons: so you can cut top-side jump stitches more easily between colour changes (you touch the button again and the emb. arm returns to under the needle so you can finish the design); and secondly so you can "park" the embroidery unit when you are finished. You can then turn the machine off, remove the emb. unit and replace it in the carry case. If you DON'T do this, the emb. arm is not in the right position to fit into the moulded carry case properly.

The Broken Thread message usually means that it has started the colour, but the thread has been pulled down underneath instead of making nice locked stitches. Hold onto the thread end until the machine has stopped and beeped for you to cut the thread. This usually solves that problem. Sometimes the thread gets pulled out of your hand so just back up the stitches a few and start over, holding the thread more tightly. Don't tug on the thread - just keep a firm grip.

Designer 1s often cut the bobbin thread too short so that it can't make those nice locked stitches when it starts. You need to take off the hoop, open up the bobbin cover and use your stylus, the tip of a pair of scissors, tweezers (whatever is to hand) to pull the bobbin thread out a little. Instead of cutting it on the bobbin thread cutter, just let it hang outside by 1/8" or so. That way you can be sure there is enough bobbin thread available for the stitch to lock. Don't use the scissors button on the machine after every colour change. Sure, it makes for a tidier back of the embroidery with less work for you afterwards, but if it means you are taking the hoop and bobbin cover off after every colour change then it is not worth it in time-saving.
If your machine is doing this - cutting the bobbin thread too short - mention it to your tech. when you machine goes in for its next service. He may be able to tweak the bobbin cutter so it does not cut so close.

Why won't the motion stop knob will not move?


Look carefully for thread caught around and under the knob. If you can't get it to turn and find no reason why it won't, you can probably delay fixing it until the next time it's due for its yearly "tuneup" (COA, clean/oil/lubricate) by taking the needle out before you wind a bobbin.

I need to adjust the sewing speed is going really slow


1. Loosen your hand pulley by removing a small screw that is on the outside edge and take your pulley off. The pulley also has to be rotated to unscrew it. Check the belt to insure the belt is aligned and push down to see if it is too tight. The motor can be loosened to adjust for tightness and alignment. If the belt is cracked it should be replaced. Try to also oil all moving parts including the needle bar while you're at it. Also, oil the race that is under the bobbin with one drop of oil. If that doesn't correct the problem you should try another foot control.

After taking only a few stitches, the bobbin thread becomes tangled and knotted. I've cleaned and oiled the shuttle and cover and adjusted the tension, but it still happens. Advice?


have you tryed changing the needle?
have you tryed changing the thread on top & bobbin area?
some thread & needle are not compatable--here's a tip I learned from a sewing expert
Cut 6-8 inch piece of thread of the spool you are going to use for your project
Take the needle you are going to use for the project
& insert the thread thru the eye of the needle
& lift one end of the thread to a 45 degree angle
& if the needle is the right size for the thread it will slide down the thread
But if the needle hangs on the thread you need one size larger needle for the thread
hope this helps

I wound a new bobbin and now I can't get it on the bobbin winding spindle. I have the exact same problem with a husqvarna 400


When you wind a bobbin on a Husqvarna and you leave the machine threaded to wind the bobbin through the needle, you must take the thread down below the foot (a metal foot only) before you take the thread up to the bobbin winder. If you take the thread directly from the needle it creates too much tension on the thread and crushes the center of the bobbin so that either you can't get the bobbin off the spindle or in some cases it damages the bobbin completely.

Some threads, the kind that can stretch slightly when pulled, shouldn't be wound through the needle at all. Instead go through the first guilde and then straight down to the little metal "button like" guide and then to the bobbin. It will create much less tension on the thread and wind it much better.

I need a new manual for my husky 145. Where can I


The manual for your machine is probably out of print. If you call 1-800-474-6437 Husqvarna may be able to get you a photo copy of the original owners manual.

Husky 145


Usually when a machine is totally jammed, it's either (a) because a bunch of upper thread has gotten jammed into and around the bobbin assembly so thoroughly that the assembly can't turn at all, or (b) the needle is jammed down the hole so thoroughly that nothing moves.

If both of those places are clean and empty. . . then "Never mind!"
