To understand the correct thread
tension, sew a few sample stitches at
different settings.
1. Begin with a tension that is too
loose, i.e. set at "1". The lower
thread will lie straight and the
upper thread will be drawn down
on the underside.
2. If you set the tension at the
highest number, the opposite will
occur, and the seam may pucker.

3. The correct thread tension is
provided when the threads
interlock in the middle of both
layers of material or, in the case
of decorative stitches, on the
underside.
Make a few tests on a scrap piece of
the material you are going to sew
and check the tension.

Three-step zigzag
Overcasting
Three-step zigzag is suitable for
overcasting most fabrics. Trim the
edges of the fabric before overcasting.
Make sure that the needle sews over
the edge of the fabric. Place the
fabric according to the presser foot
(see picture).
Sewing
Sewing terry cloth
Terry cloth is a rather loosely woven
fabric in which seams easily break.
Sew the garment together with
straight stitch. Trim the seams and
press the seam allowance flat and
sew the edges down against the
garment on the wrong side with
three-step zig-zag.
Even though the stitching goes right
through to the ”right” side of the
garment, it is nearly invisible and
even the wrong side looks neat. The
stitching will also be considerably
stronger.
Necklines and armholes are finished
in a similar way.
Mending and darning
Three-step zig-zag
, can be
utilized for mending and darning. A
threadbare spot is mended by
sewing back and forth with threestep zig-zag.
. For
Use the reverse feed button
every row of stitching, guide the
fabric slightly to the side. If the
fabric is very worn, a piece of fabric
or lining may be attached to the
reverse side of the material as
reinforcement.

Flatlock
The flatlock , is suitable for
sewing overlapped seams and
decorative hems. Loosen the presser
foot pressure to 2 when sewing
stretch fabric.
You can produce a decorative hem
by folding a single hem to the
wrong side and sewing the flatlock
from the right side.
Trim excess hem to stitching from
the wrong side.
Sewing
To sew an overlapped seam, lap one
piece of fabric over the other piece
and sew flatlock stitch over the
fabric edge on the right side.
Trim from the wrong side or sew
another seam from the right side.
Narrow belts and bands
Fold the fabric in thirds and sew in
the center. Trim excess material from
underneath.

Blind hem
Snap on presser foot D for blind
hem. As a general rule the elastic
blind hem
is used for knit fabrics
and the woven blind hem
for
woven fabrics.
Fold the material as shown. Make
sure that the fold line of the fabric
rides in the groove under the right
side of the presser foot. Practice
using a scrap of material and
compare with the illustrations.
Sewing
1. If the stitch does not
catch the folded edge,
increase the stitch
width (+).
2. If the stitch catches too
much of the fold,
decrease the stitch
width (-).
3. For an invisible hem
the needle catches a
single thread of the
folded edge.
46
Instruction book Rose
Bridging stitch
The bridging stitch
is suitable for
joining two pieces of fabric with
folded edges.
Leather and vinyl are joined by
butting the edges close to each other
using the bridging stitch. Also use to
join lace and ribbon.
Sew from the wrong side over both
lengths of the elastic following
marked lines. Gather the shirring by
pulling the elastic threads.
Seam and overcast
Some stitches can be used for seaming and overcasting directly on the edge
where a 5 mm (1/4") seam is allowed. Place the fabric so that the inside
right ”toe” of the presser foot follows the edge of the fabric.
Overlock is chiefly used for
sewing heavy stretch fabric.
Snap on presser foot B.
Overcast stitch, may be
used to sew light and
medium non-stretch fabric
and light stretch fabric. Snap
on presser foot J.
Overlock stitch is used for
medium stretch fabric. Snap
on preser foot B.
Instruction book Rose
Presser foot J is also used to
overlock and overcast many different fabrics with the exception of
heavy, firm fabrics. The pin on the
presser foot should follow the edge
of the fabric and will prevent the
fabric from puckering. Stitch width
5-6 mm. When using stitch width 4.5
or lower, use presser foot A.
47
Sewing
Elastic shirring
The bridging stitch is also useful for
gathered elastic shirring. Use the
buttonhole foot C, tighten the upper
thread tension.
On the wrong side of your fabric
draw lines to sew the stitched rows
straight.
Remember that the elastic will
always be stitched double, so take
this into account when calculating
how much you will need.
Place the shirring elastic (elastic
thread) around the finger of the
presser foot C.
Darning stitch
is a perfect stitch for mending and
darning. Use presser foot A.
1. Select NORM, sew the first row of
stitches as long as you need to
cover your tear or worn spot.
2. Touch the reverse button
and
the machine continues sewing the
remaining stitches at the same
length and fastens the thread.
3. Touch STOP. Move the fabric so
that the needle is right over the
last stitch. Repeat as many times
as you need to cover the hole.
See "Satin taper and darning
stitches" page 25.

Fault-finding
Fault-finding
Always start by checking the
needle
Always start with a new needle as
soon as you discover that a stitch is
not what you expected. Test sew on
a scrap of the fabric you are sewing.
Check that you have chosen the
correct needle and see that it is
correctly inserted. See page 16.
Unattractive stitches
The thread tension is not correct.
See page14. Make sure that the
thread is not catching. Certain thread
spools are unsuitable for spooling
from the horizontal spool pin. Try
instead with the vertical spool pin.
The machine may be incorrectly
threaded. Be sure to place spool
holders correctly.
The correct threading is shown on
page 10.
Wrong bobbin thread. It should be
of the same thickness as the upper
thread except when sewing
embroidery.
The needle breaks
The needle can strike against stitch
plate and break. Change the needle.
See page 16.
The upper thread breaks
Check the thread spool to see that it
has not caught in any way.
The needle eye may have sharp
edges which cut the thread. If so,
change the needle. See page 16.
The upper thread is incorrectly
threaded. See page 10.
The upper thread may have too
much tension. Refer to page 14.
56
The hole in the stitch plate may be
chipped and have sharp edges. We
recommend that you replace it.
The bobbin thread breaks
The bobbin thread may be
incorrectly threaded. See page 13.
The stitch plate hole is damaged.
See "Upper thread breaks".
Irregular thread tension
This may be due to poor quality
thread. When sewing with cotton
thread, increase the thread tension.
Irregular bobbin winding
The machine is not correctly
threaded for bobbin winding. See
page 12.
The fabric puckers
The upper thread tension is too
tight. See page 14 for correct thread
tension.
Use the correct presser foot as
recommended by the display.
The machine does not feed the
fabric
The stitch length is too short.
Increase stitch length.
The feed teeth may be lowered.
Raise them by turning the dial to
. See page 16.
The feed teeth are full of dust and
dirt. Clean with the brush. See page
55.
Instruction book Rose
Fault-finding
The stitch is too loose - fabric
layers not held together
The thread tension is far too loose.
Page 14 shows how to adjust the
thread tension.
Incorrect stitch
If the machine does not sew the
stitch indicated by the display, it is
possible that the electronics have
been disturbed in some way, perhaps by a short power cut or electrical disturbance. Shut off the main
switch, wait a few seconds and try
again. If the fault remains, contact
your dealer.
Machine runs sluggishly
Dirt or lint has built up under the
stitch plate. Loosen the plate and
brush clean between the feed teeth
and in the bottom area. See page 55.
Instruction book Rose
The sewing and embroidery
machine screen does not respond
to touch
The socket on the back of the
machine where the embroidery unit
is connected can be sensitive to
static electricity when the
embroidery unit is not connected. If
the sewing machine screen does not
respond to touch, turn the machine
off and back on again. If this
persists, contact your authorized
Husqvarna Viking retailer.
Expert assistance
Have your machine "tuned up"
regularly by your dealer. If you have
followed the preceding points and
still do not get satisfactory results,
you should contact the dealer where
you bought the machine. When the
machine is being checked, it is a
great help if it can be test sewn
under as similar conditions as
possible as when you used it.
Remember to take a sewing sample
along with you, preferably of the
fabric and with the thread you
intend to use.
A sewing sample will often give
much better information than words.
Non-original Parts and
Accessories
The warranty does not cover any
defect or damage caused by use of
non-original accessories or parts.
57
Fault-finding
Balance setting for buttonhole
Balance can only be set if a buttonhole is selected. Press the buttons
and
until the letters BAL
are flashing to the left on the display. In place of the stitch length
indication a balance indication is
shown. When you wish to increase
the density of the right column,
press stitch length button (-). When
you wish to decrease the density,
press stitch length button (+). The
balance can be set between -5 to +5.
The balance indication on the display will change in steps fo each
touch. When you select another
stitch, the display goes back to show
the sitch length indication. The
machine always retains the last
made balance setting.
Main motor does not work
The electronic overload protector
may have switched off. Shut off the
main switch, wait about a minute.
Then switch on the machine.
