At present, training is required for both the embroidery function and sewing function of the Husqvarna.
To use as a sewing machine:
- Turn the Husqvarna on using the switch on the right side
- If it's not already attached, find the Husqvarna foot pedal under the bench. Plug it in on the right of the machine, near the power cord. (See the thumbnail to the right.)
- Once the LCD boots, select the Sewing Mode icon. (This icon can be found in the blue bar at the very top of the LCD. It's the fifth icon from the right, the leftmost of two which look like sewing machines. See thumbnail.)
- Select your stitch from the on-screen display. For a complete listing of available stitches, see the Husqvarna documentation noted below, or consult a sewing expert.
- Switch the foot.
- In the top drawer of the fabric storage cabinet below the Husqvarna, find the clear box labeled "Husqvarna Feet and Accessories".
- In the upper left-hand corner of the LCD, locate the foot display. Find the foot that looks like the display in the LCD.
- Raise the foot. On the front display, find the button at top right (with a picture of a foot and an up arrow), and press it. (In the following thumbnail, this is labeled as "1".)
- Swap in the new foot. (In the thumbnail, note the metal bar on the foot, labeled as "2". Snap this into the slot labeled "3".

See documentation as noted below, or see Craft Room warden.
Vacuum under the bobbin after every use to keep machine free of lint. Per the sewing shop tech, the machine does NOT need oil. During everyday use, a user may need to perform several basic maintenance actions. Those are noted in the links above.
Service requiring removal of plastic casing should not be done by anyone other than the Husqvarna Viking technician. If security videos show work being done to the machine in this manner and problems are created as a result, you may be responsible for the $175 service call fee. Contact Jan Henry or Kevin Flory for issue requiring investigation and service, and a visit to the service center will be scheduled.
No advanced maintenance tasks have been identified.
What sizes are the embroidery hoops? What design size does the machine permit? What file format(s) are supported?
Jan: purchase additional bobbin thread and a backup ankle.
Better documentation and investigation into the design/execution toolchain--scheduled to be handled by the Coordinators.
Coordinators: Regularly check bobbin cutting blade. Order new part from repair shop if damaged.
Coordinators: Regularly check for nicks/scratches in needle plate. Sand out as necessary. Similarly, nicks in feet should be sanded lightly to reduce the burrs.
Kevin: Rewrite maintenance page as maintenance + troubleshooting; add link to Husqvarna troubleshooting section of manual (http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/SiteMedia/Products/Machines/Support/Designer_SE_Troubleshooting_EN.pdf).
