Thread break warning when thraed is fine

Just got this machine Singer CE- 150 Futura and every time I try to use it the alarm about the thread goes off. The thread is fine, the needle is fine, the material is not thick at all. Yet it keeps doing that. It will sew or embroider for like a min then the alarm again. What should I do?

Try switching to a higher quality thread, and blowing out the upper assemblies with canned air. (Making sure the machine is turned off before you do so.) Many problems are associated with low-quality thread, (Coats and Clark is the worst offender in this category.) Set your tension to about 4.5 and then try sewing again.
If this doesn't help, you may have a bad sensor, which would require service.

I have a futura ce 150 and my bobbin thread won't catch


Are you able to bring the bobbin thread to the top of the needle plate, but it's skipping stitches, or you can't "catch" the bobbin thread to start sewing at all.

If you can't "catch" it at all, your machine's hook is no longer synchronizing, and you will need to have it retimed by a technician. The good news is, timing is not something that is unique per manufacturer, which means ANY sewing machine technician should be able to do it.

Singer quantum futura ce200 - thread breaks


The needle thread breaks
1. the needle thread is not threaded properly
2. The needle thread tension is to tight
3. The needle is bent or blunt
4. The needle is incorrectly inserted
5. The needle thread & the bobbin thread are not set under the presser foot when starting to sew
6. the threads were not drawn to the rear after sewing
7. The thread is either to heavy or to fine for the needle

I have the CE 150 Futura and my thread is breaking, am I threading it right at the top the diagram is confusing that came with the machine.


If the 150 is like my 200 there is a spindle underneath the clear plastic piece on the top of the machine. If you do not get the thread around that hidden spindle it will either break or read as broken every time. It is the weirest think because you cannot actually see the little hidden spindle but you can feel the thread pop behind it if you get it right. Good luck.

I have a Singer Futura CE-150 and it keeps stopping due to "Thread break error" but the thread and bobbin seem okay what could it be?


Either upper thread is not passing through thread sensor area or sensor is broken.
Second possible reason is that if design is not optimized the sporadic speed change provides thread breakage error even if the thread is not broken physically. Make sure your software is updated to optimize it automatically (Futura main menu->Help->Live Update).

reduce the upper tension until the thread doesn't show on top anymore. This will probably solve both problems.The problem you describe is mechanical not computer related.

I have a CE-250 and I was having problems getting this message. After doing some research, I discovered that it was the thread sensor not sensing the thread. Try rethreading it or cleaning out your sensor area. It works for me when I get this message

Can't seem to embroider


brothers frame is much smaller I think 4 x 4. I have futura 200. found this to happen at first but now now. Make sure when threading that you floss the thread through the top part, it has plastic over it. The thread must fit properly in this part. (flossing means to run back and forth a couple of times holding thread tightly). Also, hold the 2 thread ends when you first start to embroider. Hope this helps
