Setting Up the Table (and Taking
it Down for Storage)
Installing the Power Cord
The PLATINUM™ 16 quilting machine table has been
designed to accommodate the PLATINUM™ 16 quilting
machine. It has folding legs that are height-adjustable
and is heavy enough to provide stabilization for quilting
at high speeds.
1. Open the box and gently remove the table, taking
care not to drop the table on the floor.The table weighs
nearly 50 pounds, so it is recommended that you ask
someone to help.
2. Remove the bracer.
3.Unfold the legs, pulling on the horizontal braces until
the legs snap into place. Set the table upright.
4. Make the table taller by pinching the two heightadjustment tabs on each set of legs and lifting on table,
while holding legs down with foot. Make the table
shorter by pinching the same tabs and pushing down
on the table.
5.To store the table, remove machine and return legs to
their lowest position.
6.The legs are attached to the table top with brackets
of two different sizes. One is longer than the other.
Identify the long and the short leg brackets.
7. Fold in the short bracket leg first. Push on the
horizontal braces to loosen the legs and push them
back toward the table top.
Figure 4
Check that the On/Off switch (page 12, Figure 3, #21)
is turned off (the 0 setting). Plug the power cord into
the power outlet on the back of the machine (Figure 4).
Do not plug the power cord into a power source at this
time.
Installing the Foot Pedal
1. Plug in the foot pedal cord end into the foot pedal
connector (see page 12, Figure 3, #23).
2. Place the foot pedal under the table where operator
can reach it from the front of the machine.
8. Repeat with the long bracket leg.
Placing the Machine in the Table
1. We recommend having someone help lift and place
the machine.
2. Lift the machine by putting one arm through the
throat space.
3. Guide the machine from the back of the table into
the slot. Machine is positioned correctly when the back
of the machine is flush with the back of the table.
Page 13
Installing the Thread Stand
Installing the Color Touch-Screen
Figure 6
The color touch-screen comes pre-installed on its
mounting bracket and should have one end of the D
cable attached to the back of the touch-screen (see
Figure 6).
NOTE: Confirm that the power is turned off before
installing the Color Touch-Screen.
Figure 5
1. Locate the two threaded holes on the left side of the
machine, near the top and towards the middle.
2. Remove the 2 screws. Line up the holes of the
thread stand with the holes on the machine and
reinsert the screws.
3.Turn the thread stand until the eyelets are positioned
over the spool pins.
1. Align the holes in the color touch-screen bracket
hinges with the 4 holes on the front of the machine,
with the touch screen facing the needle end of the
machine.
2. Use a Phillips screwdriver to tighten the 4 screws
through the holes of the hinges and into the machine
(Figure 6).Tighten in place.
3. Plug the remaining cable end into the display connector located on the side of the machine (page 11,
Figure 2, #19).
4. Remove the protective plastic from the touch-screen
before using.
Note: The eyelets of the thread stand MUST be centered
over the spool pins.This ensures that the cone of thread will
not pull, turn or tilt, which will cause thread tension problems
(see Figure 5).
Page 14
Inserting (or changing) the Needle
Note: Changing the needle is recommended for each new quilt
loaded on the machine or any time the needle becomes bent,
dull or burred.
Needles are inexpensive and are important to the success
of your project. Plan to change needles every 5-7 hours of
quilting or more often if working with a lot of fusibles or heavy
materials.

Adjusting the Hopping Foot
The foot is adjusted at the factory and should not be
moved without consulting your dealer.
1. Move the needle bar to the highest position by
turning the hand wheel.
2. Confirm that the power is off and that the machine is
unplugged.
3. Loosen the needle-bar clamp thumb screw (see Figure
7) enough to assure that the needle can be inserted all
the way up to the top of the sight hole.
4. With the scarf (small ground out section/dip on the
back side of the needle just above the needle eye)
facing the hand wheel end of the machine, and the long
groove down the front of the needle facing the bobbin
case side (see Figure 7), push the needle all the way up
into the needle bar – until it can go no further. Look
into the sight hole to verify that the butt of the needle
reaches the top of the sight hole.
5. Carefully tighten the thumb screw. Over-tightening
the thumb screw will result in damaged threads or
stripping of the screw hole. Stripped holes are not
covered under warranty.To avoid over-tightening the
screw, finger-tighten only.

and bad tension. For most threads on a cone, it is important
to thread all three holes for consistent results and to make
adjustments at the top tension assembly. An exception to
this rule is when working with very delicate threads, such as
holographic or threads that are prone to breakage.You may try
skipping one or two holes on thread guide B when using these
threads.

NOTE: It is important that the thread is “flossed” up between
the two tension discs. If the thread is not firmly in place
between the two tension discs, the thread rests on the outside
of the tension discs (without tension) and looping on fabric or
thread nests may occur.

5. Bring the thread back up through the take-up lever
from back to front, and then down through thread guide
E. Pull the thread at the take-up lever to ensure that it
is properly flossed between the tension disks. If it is
properly flossed in the tension disks you should feel
some resistance as you pull the thread. If it is not, then
the thread will pull freely.
6. Pull the thread down to the needle thread guide and
thread through the hole (thread guide F).
7. Make sure the thread is following the groove down
the front of the needle and threads from front to back.
Be careful that the thread does not twist around the
needle.

DETAIL D
SCALE 1 : 2
Figure 10
IMPORTANT NOTE: The PLATINUM™ 16 quilting machine
does not have a presser foot lever or top tension release like
a home sewing machine. On a home sewing machine the top
tension is released when the presser foot is raised, allowing
the thread to come freely out of the machine. When a home
machine is threaded, the presser foot is raised and the tension
discs are released and open for the thread to easily fall between
the tension discs. This is not the case with the PLATINUM™
16 quilting machine where the top tension is always tight and
the tension discs are never open. Therefore, the thread must
be pulled up or “flossed” between the tension discs or it will
stay outside the discs and float without tension, causing serious
stitch problems and/or thread nests. It is also possible to bend
the needle while it is threaded if care is not taken while moving
the machine around the quilt because the top tension is never
released.

bobbin case with thumb and first finger. Do not lift the
lever on bobbin case. Fit the bobbin case onto the hook
spindle in the machine. Rotate the case until the open
throat keys into the alignment notch in the middle of
the hook. Push the case in until it stops in place. Push
the case inward further until it clicks (see Figure 14).
Allow the thread end to hang freely.

2. Slide the thread through the slot (Figure 12) and
under the tension spring leaving 5-6 inches of thread
hanging loose (Figures 12 and 13).
Page 18
NOTE: Pulling out the latch lever pushes the bobbin forward
in the bobbin case, aiding in removal of the bobbin.The lever
should be used only for removing the bobbin case from the
machine.
Drawing the Bobbin Thread to the Top of
the Quilt
1. After threading the machine, plug it in and turn on
the power. Place quilt sandwich under hopping foot.
2. While firmly holding the tail of the needle thread with
the left hand, choose one of the following methods to
cycle the needle through one full rotation to bring the
bobbin thread to the top of the quilt.
A. Foot Pedal Method. LIGHTLY tap the foot pedal to
make the needle go down.Then LIGHTLY tap again to
bring the needle up.
B. Needle Up/Down Button Half-Stitch. Find the
Needle Up/Down Button in the lower left of the color
touch screen main display. Press once to cycle the
needle down. Press again to cycle the needle back up.
C. Needle Up/Down Button, Full-Stitch. Find the
Needle Up/Down Button in the lower left of the color
touch screen main display. Press and hold briefly to
cycle the needle through one complete stitch cycle
(down and back up).

Tighten Bobbin Case Tension
The bobbin case tension is TOO LOOSE if it will not
lift up onto its side.Turn screw clockwise to tighten.
The bobbin case screw requires very small adjustments.
Think of the “tick of a clock” . Adjust, then check. Adjust
and check again.
3. Pull the fabric 3-4 inches away while holding the
needle thread.
Loosen Bobbin Case Tension
4. Bobbin thread will pull up and through to the top,
allowing you to grasp the loop and pull it to the desired
length.
The bobbin case tension is TOO TIGHT if it lifts out of
your hand. Turn screw counter-clockwise to loosen.
The bobbin case screw requires very small adjustments.
Think of the “tick of a clock” . Adjust, then check. Adjust
and check again.
Checking and Adjusting Bobbin Case
Tension
The bobbin case tension is the foundation tension
for the entire machine.To test that bobbin tension is
correct, hold the bobbin case in the palm of your hand
with the open end facing up. Wrap the thread around
your index finger and lift the bobbin case from your
hand. While gently moving the finger front to back (not
up and down, which is not consistent), the bobbin case
should slide slowly down the thread, like a spider on its
web.
The small screw in the center of the tension spring is
where the adjustment is made (see Figure 15). Turn
clockwise to tighten and counter-clockwise to loosen
the bobbin case tension. Make very small adjustments.
Check the bobbin tension every time a new bobbin is
inserted.
Top Thread Tension Adjustment
IMPORTANT NOTE: Top thread tension should be adjusted
only after the bobbin case foundation tension adjustment is
made.
Puckering, gathers and thread breakage occur when the
top tension is too tight. Loops and thread nests occur
on the back when the top thread tension is too loose.
(See Figure 16 on next page.) Tension may need to be
adjusted, depending on the fabric, thread or batting used
in each project.
Unlike the bobbin case adjustment, which requires
minute adjustments (like the tick of a clock), the top
tension knob may require turns anywhere from 1/4 of a
turn to 2-4 turns to achieve balanced tension.
Tighten Top Thread Tension
To adjust the top tension tighter, turn the top thread
tension knob (page 10, Figure 1, #5) clockwise.
Page 19
Loosen Top Thread Tension
To loosen the tension, turn the top thread tension knob
(page 10, Figure 1, #5) counter-clockwise.
NOTE: Before adjusting the top tension, remember to floss
or pull the top thread up into the tension discs or it will float
outside the discs providing little or no top tension. This could
cause significant tension or nesting problems on the bottom
side of the quilt. If the top tension is too loose (causing loops
of thread on the underside of the quilt) and no amount of
tightening the top thread tension knob seems to affect it, there’s
a good chance that the thread is riding on the outside of the
tension discs and is not “flossed” between them.
A stitch is balanced when the
top thread and the bobbin
thread meet in the middle of
the quilt sandwich.
Having set the bobbin thread tension properly, and the
top thread looks like Diagram A:

Maintenance
NOTE: Turn off the machine and remove the power cord when
performing maintenance on the machine.
Cleaning and Lubricating the Machine
Only use light sewing machine oil in the
PLATINUM™16 quilting machine. Internal oiling is not
necessary on the PLATINUM™16 quilting machine
except when the machine is taken to a service
technician for routine maintenance and cleaning. The
hook assembly, however, needs regular lubricating.
Failure to keep the hook assembly lubricated can cause
severe damage to the machine.
Page 20
Figure 17
To lubricate, turn off the machine. Remove the bobbin
and case before oiling. Clean around the hook assembly
with a soft brush to remove lint. Put a very small drop
of oil on the hook in the region where the bobbin
basket assembly and the rotating hook meet (see Figure
17). The bobbin basket is the portion of the hook
that the bobbin case snaps into. The bobbin basket
remains stationary while the hook rotates around the
basket. The oil lubricates the region where these two
components interlock. A drop of oil in the region
indicated will work its way back into the interlocking
area of the hook and bobbin basket.
The frequency of lubrication depends upon the usage
of the machine. Lubricating is recommended before
running the machine if it has not been used regularly,
or every other bobbin change if used frequently. After
oiling, always stitch through a scrap piece of fabric, as
oil may cling to thread. Over-oiling can cause excess
dripping from the bobbin assembly. Lack of lubricant
may be noticed by a change in the sound of the
machine and will affect stitch quality.
Cleaning the Touch-Screen Display
Use a soft rag dampened with isopropyl alcohol to
gently wipe the display and remove any marks. Never use
any other chemicals to clean your display as they may
adversely affect the touch-screen response and clarity.

Current Speed
The box in the top right of Figure 19 is the current
percentage of full speed the machine is running. The
value displayed will vary as you press and release the
foot pedal. The maximum percentage value that is
displayed is controlled by the Limit that is set for the
machine.
Limit Controls
The Limit box encompasses two main features, the
“My Speed” controls and Preset buttons. The My Speed
controls consist of “+” and “-” buttons and the My Speed
display box (Figure 20). Pressing the “+” button will
increase the maximum motor speed the pedal controls.
Pressing the “-” button will decrease the maximum
speed.
The My Speed range is between 5 % and 100 % or
between 75 and 1500 stitches per minute (SPM). The
current percentage My Speed value is displayed in the
box under the “Limit” text. This My Speed setting will
be preserved when the machine is shut off, allowing
you to begin quilting again at the same speed when you
turn the machine back on.

Getting Started Quilting
Thread Requirements
Threads have a tendency to dry rot over a period of
time. Be sure to choose high quality threads for your
valuable heirloom quilts. Most machine quilting threads
on the market today are acceptable.
Needle Requirements
For general quilting, a size 16/100 needle will
accommodate most threads and fabrics. Heavier threads,
such as top stitch and some decora­tive threads, require a
larger needle such as 18/110 or 20/120. Heavier fabrics
such as denim, canvas or densely woven fabric may
require a larger needle.
To Prepare for Quilting
With any quilting machine, it is important to under­stand
the basics of free motion quilting. The PLATINUM™
16 quilting machine Quilting Machine does not have
feed dogs like domestic machines; therefore, the fabric
does not automatically feed under the hopping foot.
The operator controls the machine sewing speed with
the My Speed setting and the foot pedal, and moves the
fabric to get an even, consistent stitch.
In order to become comfortable using the PLATINUM™
16 quilting machine, quilters can begin with a few
simple techniques using a sample quilt sandwich (two
pieces of fabric with a layer of batting between them).
Set the machine at a medium My Speed setting (perhaps
25%) and begin moving the fabric until you become
accustomed to the resistance. By moving the fabric
faster, the stitches begin to elongate.The My Speed
setting can either be increased or the fabric can be
moved slower to get the stitches back to the desired
length. By moving the fabric slower, the stitches get
shorter and can build up on top of each other, breaking
the thread or making it extremely difficult to unpick.
Page 28
The My Speed setting can be decreased or the foot
pedal released slightly, while maintaining a constant
motion with the fabric, to bring the stitches back to the
desired length.
When quilting, relax your hands and maintain a light
touch on the fabric. Gripping the fabric too tightly may
cause body tension resulting in poor quilting quality and
discomfort.
Different colors of fabric may require different
brightness settings for the LED light ring to prevent eye
strain.
Correcting Common Issues
Skipped Stitches
Corrective Measure
• The needle is damaged, dull,
bent, or installed improperly
• Replace the needle often, normally once or twice per day for continuous
quilting or at least once per quilt. Use PLATINUM™ 16 quilting machine
recommended needles.
• Always change the needle if the needle has struck any hard object such as
a straight pin, etc.The tip of the needle can become damaged or burred,
resulting in fabric damage as well as skipped stitches, thread breakage or
shredding.
• Always change the needle if it has been hit, bumped or pulled off center
while maneuvering the machine about the quilt. A slightly bent needle can
be a major cause of skipped stitches.
• Incorrect needle size
• Very tightly-woven fabric
(such as batiks)
• Check for the proper combination of needle size and thread weight
• Needle has not been
positioned properly
• Position the needle properly to the needle bar. Inspect the position of the
needle to make sure the needle is at the 6 o’clock position (see figure 16,
page 20)—If you stand directly in front of the needle (facing the bobbin
case side of the machine), you will see the entire needle eye directly facing
you. This is 6 o’clock position.
• Make sure (1) the needle is installed all the way into the needle bar to the
needle stop hole in the needle bar, (2) the long groove in the needle is
toward the front (bobbin case side), and (3) the scarf/scooped out part of
the needle is toward the handwheel.The needle can sometimes be rotated
to 5 o’clock (slightly right) or 7 o’clock (slightly left) in order to adjust for
a more positive thread loop pickup by the hook point.
• Thread tension too tight
• Loosen top tension. Re-check top and bobbin tension (see pages 19-20).
• Improper threading
• Inspect that the thread take-up lever, thread stirrup or tension spring are all
being applied to the quilting operation. Some fabrics used in quilting may
constrict or impede the thread passing through the front groove of the
needle.This diminishes the loop lift required for stitch formation.Typically,
a larger needle will solve the problem; however, it has been found that
certain smaller sizes of needles as well as the use of ball-pointed needles
solve some specific problems.
threaded correctly.
The Needle Breaks
• The needle is bent or not
installed properly
• The needle hits the needle
plate
Stitches are Puckered
Corrective Measure
• Replace or correctly change the needle. Make sure that the needle is
pushed up into the needle bar clamp until it can go no farther (visually
check that it is up to the top of the stop/sight hole above the needle bar
clamp screw). Failure to do so can cause damage in the bobbin area and
throat plate.
• Correctly position the needle, needle plate or hopping foot. Replace
needle with a new one.
Corrective Measure
• Tension is not balanced
• Balance the tension of the needle thread after ensuring the bobbin tension
is adjusted correctly (see pages 19-20).
• Needle too large for material
• Replace the needle with a size better suited to the fabric.
Page 29
Correcting Common Issues
Stitch Quality is Poor
Corrective Measure
• Tension is not balanced
• Adjust the tension of the needle thread after ensuring the bobbin tension is
adjusted correctly (see pages 19-20).
• Bobbin case is damaged,
corroded, dirty, et cetera
• Since thread slides over the surface of the bobbin case at a high speed,
make sure the case is free of any lint or foreign matter that could impede
thread passage through the machine.
• The My Speed setting should be adjusted to a value that will allow you
to sew comfortably and confidently with the foot pedal fully depressed.
Discover a method of holding the fabric that is most comfortable.
Corrective Measure
• Moving the fabric or
depressing the foot pedal
inconsistently
Tension Is Poor
• Lint caught under the tension
spring in the bobbin case
• With some threads, lint and other material can build up under the tension
leaf spring and begin to lift the spring.This reduces the spring’s ability to
compress against the thread. By inserting a needle under the spring and
clearing out the lint, the bobbin tension will return to the previously set
tension.
• Poorly wound bobbin
• If the bobbin is wound too tight or too loose it can lead to poor and
inconsistent tension. Make sure when the bobbin is wound that the thread
tension is not so tight that the wound bobbin thread feels hard and causes
the bobbin sides to bulge. It should also not be so loose that the thread is
spongy, which can cause the thread to tangle as it is wound.
Hand Wheel Won’t Rotate
• Thread is entangled and
caught in the hook
Thread Nests Under Quilt
Corrective Measure
• Turn off the machine and remove the power plug from the electrical
outlet. Remove the bobbin case from the machine. Lubricate the hook, then
manually rotate the hand wheel clockwise and counter-clockwise several
times. Remove the thread caught in the hook.
Corrective Measure
• Not enough tension on top
thread
• Check that the machine is threaded correctly. Make certain that the thread
is flossed snugly in place between the two tension discs. If the machine is
correctly threaded, tighten the top tension by rotating the tension knob
clockwise.
• Improper threading
Motor Fails to Run
• Refer to the threading diagram and threading instructions on pages 16-17.
Corrective Measure
• On/Off switch is off or power
cord is loose
• Turn the machine on only by using the switch on the back of the power
pod. Verify the power cord is plugged in tightly at both the machine and
the power source.
• Verify that the foot pedal is plugged in. If the main screen status message
in the upper left hand corner says “Check Pedal”, then the pedal is not
properly installed.
• Foot pedal is unplugged
Page 30
Correcting Common Issues
Needle Thread Breaks
Corrective Measure
• Top and bobbin tension not
balanced
• Check the tension of the top tensioner and bobbin for proper balance (see
pages 19-20).
• Thread cones/spools are poor
quality or may have severe
twisting or thread rot
• Look for severe twisting of threads when approximately 12 to 15 inches
has been pulled off, with ends pinched together. Cotton threads are
particularly susceptible to dry rot which makes thread brittle. Do not use
poor quality thread, or thread that is rotted or brittle.
• The machine head has been

• Inspect the vertical positioning of the thread cones.Tipped cones can
dramatically affect thread tension and can cause breakage.
• Particles in tension discs
• Inspect for particles and remove any lint or debris.
• Bobbin rotation is not smooth • Change the bobbin. The slightest hesitation of the bobbin rotation can
be the cause of dramatic tension change and thread breakage. Use ONLY

thread path
• Wrong type of needle
• Use needles recommended by HUSQVARNA VIKING®. Using the wrong
needle with a smaller shank diameter causes many problems. For example
a system 1738 or 287WH needle with a shank diameter of 1.64mm will
fit loosely into the clamp at an angle. This may cause skipped stitches
because the needle is positioned too far away from the hook point. It can
also cause the needle to hit the hook, breaking the needle.
• Other possible causes:
• The needle is too close to the hook, which causes friction and a possible
collision of the hook point and the needle.
• Needle plate damage.
• Hook damage.
• Broken needle inside needle bar clamp, preventing the needle from
insertion to the top of the clamp.
• Damaged needle bar clamp.
No Visible Display
