Singer Futura CE 150 not recognizing small hoop

Hi, I am having a problem with my singer machine. Everytime I try to monogram something in my small hoop, it always thinks it is the big hoop. I have tried everything that the other post said to do and it has not helped. Do you have any idea what is wrong. I just got the machine and am unable to do anything on it.

Except advices from the previous posts I suggest to check out whether you install small hoop precisely, there should not be any deflections, you need to insert it on the full length and fix it very well.

I have a Singer Futura XL550. The small hoop will not slide on to machine. the big one goes on easy. Could they have sent the wrong hoop when I bought it? Or is there a secret to putting it on

No, there's no secret to putting it on, but occasionally, you can get a bad hoop. You see, the hoops for every machine are not made by the same people that make the machine. Often, for instance, the center markings are slightly off.

If your machine is under warranty, just email Singer with a copy of the receipt, and they'll send you a replacement. If it isn't under warranty, you can easily find one on Amazon or ebay. By the way, if it fits the XL-400, any SEQS machine, or an XL-420 or -480, it will fit yours, too, and they're not expensive.

All lights blink constant

That's an indicator that something is wrong with the machine, but it's usually user fixable. I'm going to assume that that happens when you attach the embroidery unit and turn the machine on. It indicates that for whatever reason, your machine cannot move the hoop to its default position. That could be because you have the small hoop attached (turn it on with NO hoops), the needle is not in its HIGHEST position, or the unit itself is not making a complete connection. Make sure that it is on solid level surface, raise the needle to its highest position (ALWAYS turn the wheel towards you), make sure the unit is making solid contact, and remove all hoops, and then try turning it on.

What does the 10 light mean

Manual for this machine is here:
10 means the hoop size is too small to let the hoop move to the proper position, install a bigger hoop, according to the error codes on the next to last page.

My singer xl-5000 has a misaligned hoop.

Have you found the reset to your machine yet? Mine's a Janome... but I think I hold the power and some other button together and it puts me in diagnostic mode. If you are computer savvy you should be able to navigate until you can find the reset. If this scares you... call a repair person

Before attaching small hoop, turn on power switch to
move the carriage to embroidering standby position, and
turn off power switch.

Make sure you have the latest software version. Current version you may check in About dialog under Help submenu and in the same submenu you wil find a function Live Update.
Also make sure you switch on the sewing machine either with the large hoop connected or without hoop. If sewing machine was switched on with the small hoop attached, it will provide this error message about wrong hoop.

Futura CE-200 Stops in middle of design and says wrong hoop size

Dear cjnations
Firstly we must all remember that the CE200 is a very particular machine and requires that you follow certain procedures in order for it to run smoothly. When using the small hoop, firstly you must make sure that the small hoop is selected on the screen by going to Tools, Select Hoop & clicking on small frame. Once this has been done and the design selected, you must then attach the small hoop before sending the design to the machine. If you attach the hoop after sending the design, the machine will give you the error message.
Good Luck!
