Husqvarna Lily 540 and 550 - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


Are you using a very thin fabric? If so perhaps you need more pressure, try turning up the pressure wheel a notch. Normal setting is 4 so perhaps up to 5 or 6. But remember to turn it back down when finished.

This has happened to most of us from time to time! There are several different things you can try. The first is to turn it upside down and gently shake from side to side (I have to get my husband to do this!).

The second thing you can try is you can purchase a tiny magnet on a telescoping rod at any hardware store that will fit on the sides of the bobbin area. That will generally bring it up, and no--you won't harm the components.

Hello Joyce Smith
Please refer to page 45 in the instruction manual which can be downloaded for free at this link

Instead of using invisible nylon, if at all possible use invisible polyester thread. It behaves better and does not break during prolonged stitching. Use a "Quilting" needle size 80/12.

use the tool in your accessory box, otherwise take the machine to your authorized Viking dealer and have them put a new bulb in.

there should be tool in your accessory kit for removing and installing the bulb. If you don't have it , Take the machine to an authorized Viking dealer and have them put a new bulb in. They may also sell you a replacement bulb installation and removal tool.

Check the feed dogs are in UP position. If so, are they moving back and forward when turning the hand wheel (be careful if you have a needle in the machine). If they are not moving back/forward, it is either the lower shaft has slipped out of position or the stepper motor has gone bad and needs replacing. Your local authorized husqvarnaviking dealer should be able to repair the machine. You can find the nearest dealer at http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us

Make sure the presser foot is in the up position. This will open up the tension disks. It takes a lot of patience to remove imbedded thread. Use tweezers to grab the thread. Rock the handwheel backwards and forwards to help release the thread. If all that fails, have it cleaned by an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. You can find your nearest dealer at the viking website - http://www.huqvarnaviking.com/us

You should be able to pull the cover of the hand wheel off. Just firmly grab the hand wheel and pull straight back.

If it were my machine I would pull the back cover for better access to the rotating shaft and remove the remaining thread. If the thread works its way into the shaft bearings you will have a real mess.

If your machine has a free motion knob there should be a small screw visible. This is the knob stop screw, undo this and the knob can be fully unscrewed and then the wheel can be slid off

Check they feed dogs are at least one mm above the needle plate. If not check their is no lint under the needle plate. To raise the feed dogs you remove the rear cover and turn a knurled wheel. From the rear it is visible to the right and above the gear that drives the hook.

The machines came with a rubber tool to change the bulb. It helped you grip the bulb. If you don't have one visit your dealer.

The problem is never the bobbin when you have this problem. It's the top thread. Take the thread off the top of the machine and rethread the top. Make sure the small tension dial is on 4 or 5 (the larger dial on the front left is for the pressure on the foot, not the thread tension.) After you thread the machine, put the pressure foot down but NOT on the thread. Then pull gently toward the back of the machine. When you do, the needle should bend slightly backwards before the thread comes through the machine. If it pulls with no resistance you could simply have "fluff" or remants of thread between your tension discs. If you do, put the dial on zero and using an old needle, clean between the discs and try threading the machine again with the "pull test" I described earlier.
No tension on the top of the machine, lets the bobbin tension win and it pulls all the thread to the bottom of the fabric.
