Well, when my sewing machine did this, I took a hair dryer and held it over the reverse lever for about 5 minutes. I seemed to loosen it up and worked fine after that. When machines sit, the oil can sometimes harden or dry up. Try it and I hope it works.

If it's a mechanical machine, it may be seizing if the oil has dried out. If this is the case, you should probably get it taken care of before the motor is damaged.

Probably something has become disconnected or broken.

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: . The direct link to the manual is . 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: .

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.

Sounds like something is amiss with the feed dogs or the stitch regulator itself. If it is a mechanical machine, it could be seizing due to lack of oil. However, if you are afraid to mess with the machine (understandable), you may want to take it for service. Could be something simple but could also be more complicated that would require a knowledgeable technician.

I recommend taking it for service. It could be a power issue that should be diagnosed by a technician.

You need a darning foot or free motion foot. Other than that, there are a lot of videos and web sites available. Just search for "free motion quilting." The only other thing is practice, practice, practice, It takes time and practice to do it well.

Has it been sitting awhile without being used? Try a hair dryer to loosen it up by heating it for about 5 minutes. Take look at this video if you have to take it apart.

Be sure the presser foot is installed correctly and that the presser foot is lowered before beginning to sew. If that doesn't help, try a different presser foot. If there are still issues, your machine may need service.

Go to, look for how to install a vertical bobbin case. You don't have to find a Viking 940 because a vertical bobbin installs the same in most machines. They have good tips and it is free.
