The Designer II should not be oiled by the user. As with most computerized sewing machines, it's got a sealed bearing system. You do need to clean the bobbin area and the space under the bobbin case. See page 65 of the user manual to open stitch plate to clean the bobbin area and feed dogs. Next remove bobbin case holder and bobbin case to clean under there. Sometimes the interdental brushes can get some of the lint that the sewing machine brush misses.

The manual for the Husqvarna Viking Designer II is available on the product page: http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/en-US/Machines/DESIGNER-II . The current link to the manual is http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/getattachment/Machines/DESIGNER-II/Designer-II.pdf.aspx .

I hope this helps.

Hello Ed

Three beeps indicate "attention, the set-up is not correct". Is the presser foot down?

Happy stitching

Rotate the handwheel several turns. It should turn smoothly and evenly without binding or jams.

Could be the problem is inside the foot control/cable. Disconnect foot control and try using START/STOP and see if the resets stop.

I noted the following in the manual;
"Never operate the sewing machine with any air openings blocked. Keep ventilation openings of the sewing machine and foot controller free from the accumulation of lint, dust, and loose cloth."
I don't believe this is your problem but check it anyway.

If it still resets when using START/STOP, could be speed control electronics inside machine or even the motor itself.

Check power gear selection (see bobbin spindle).

If you need a copy of manual;

On my machine, I use a size 18 needle with an 8 to 9 tension. Could try that. :-)

No, the Scandavania 300 doesn't have embroidery stitches built in. Embroidery patterns come on a memory card; the card reader is on the side of the machine above the power switch. The machine originally came with a card with 25 "sampler" patterns. There are only 20 pre-programmed stitches, including a blanket stitch/hand-look applique stitch. See page 32 the manual, http://manuals.husqvarnaviking.com/VSM/Husqvarna%20Viking/HVManual.nsf/5bc6115484660075c12575d2003f80e3/51860492a45a0af1852575ed00729c00/$FILE/Scandinavia300_manual_EN.pdf , for the list of included stitches. See page 20 for setting up for embroidery.

If you don't have that memory card, some may be available on E-bay. However, you'll need to check that the card is compatible with the Scandavania 300. Most of the cards I've seen on E-bay are programmable ones that require a separate reader/writer that connects to your computer. Many of the writers are not supported for newer versions of the Windows OS; the drivers weren't updated.

I hope this helps.

Here is a recent answer of mine on the same question: : Q: Why isn't the Needle Thread picking up the Bobbin Thread? A: Steps to Resolve: Take all of theses these steps before trying to pickup the Bobbin Thread again. 1. Check to be sure the needle is properly installed and threaded. 2. Check if the Bobbin and Bobbin thread is properly installed. 3. Remove any thread tangle or lint from under the needle plate. 4. Remove the Bobbin, Bobbin Case and Hook Assembly. 5. Clean, Oil and Reassemble Hook Assembly and Bobbin Case. 6. Install a new needle according to owner's Manual. Very important. 7. Test for Bobbin Thread Pickup. 8. If problem persists, the machine Timing is likely off. 9. Check Timing: a. Remove Needle Plate (Feed Dog Removal is optional for better view). b. While turning Handwheel (Top of Wheel Toward Operator), observe the Hook. The Tip of Hook should pass behind the Needle shaft, just above Needle Eye, at each upward needle cycle. c. If the Tip of the Hook lags or precedes the Needle on it's upward cycle, that means your machine has slipped out of proper Timing and needs to be Re-Timed. Machine Repair shops usually charge about $90 to Time your machine. With a lot of patience, study and persistence you can time your own machine. Timing a machine is outside of the scope of this reply, but many U-Tube videos will go into great detail of how to Time your machine. Service Manual instructions with diagrams can walk you through it. Timing is very do-able, if you are the slightest bit mechanically inclined, but is still a little tricky the first time (till you find the correct gear, with two set-screws, to adjust). With a little persistence, you should be able to Time your machine. Sincerely, Amender 2019-JAN 06 P.S. If your machine needs Timing, I wrote a post since the one above that goes inot what is needed.

Remove the cover on the left side of the arm and there is a knob that you push to the right and turn it down.
