    If it's not your thread it might be you need a new thread sensor. First make sure your machine is clean of debrey above and below where thread passes. If the sensor is going crazy on you with it in sewing mode on straight stitch too and your tension looks fine could be your thread sensor is bad.

I found i had put the thread reel with the snick at front of the reel. Put the reel in the reel holder the other way up so the thread comes off the reel without getting caught in it

Select in the main Futura menu Help->Machine setup Tutorial, lesson 10b, the balloon shows the proper position of the upper thread inside sensor checked area.

I am trying to embroidery on my futura ce200 and it starts then stops, giving message thread breakage but thread is not broken


I have this problem when the thread isn't locked into position under the clear plastic guide on top of the machine. You have to hear it click 2 times on the right hand side. You have to pull the tread kinda hard. Hope this helps.

Needle keeps breaking when embroidery unit is attached


Make sure the top thread is not catching and causing the breakage.

Sometimes the thread unwinds too fast and catches on the spool pin and sometimes there is a rough spot on the thread spool that catches the thread.

Thread nets will help eliminate the fast unwind (pooling) - you can find them at sewing machine dealers.

If the thread spool has a rough notch that is catching the thread, smooth it with an emery board or turn the spool so the thread feeds from the opposite end.

Singer CE-150: Constant error messages, thread breakage, etc.


Check the sensor at the top of the machine. It is where the thread passes through the plastic "u-turn". Check to see if the wheel turns when you pull the thread through the machine. The wheel has a red marking on it. If the wheel isn't turning when you pull the thread, it may not be sensing the threading correctly.

I hope this helps. God bless you!

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).

I keep getting the thread breakage message and there is no broken thread it is threaded correctly but it keeps saying that there is threas breakage can anyone help me this is for the futura 250


have you tried re-threading the machine, sometimes the thread can slip off the check spring for needle thread and cause a thread break message.

if you have re-threaded and cleaned the bobbin area (preferrably with compressed air) then most likely the thread break sensor is damaged and will require a tech to repair.

goodluck

I am trying to do letter embroidery on my Futura 350 and I keep getting constant error messages about thread breaking even when there is no visible sign of that. Also, the bobbin thread side is bunching...


Check out your threading with "Machine setup" Tutorial under Help submenu and whether the thread tension control on the front panel is set to "E".

P.S. The error message about thread breakage appears not only when the thread is really broken but if the sewing speed is not changing smoothly (for example if design is not optimised).

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

Problems with Singer CE-150... the LED light #19 keeps coming on, but I KNOW it isn't threaded incorrectly..


This machine uses a rotary thread break sensor. If you look at the top left of your machine when it is running the sensor (white dial) should be spinning. Threading around this part is critical. Make sure it spins when you pull thread through the needle. if it does not you have missed something in threading. If this is spinning and machine still stops it is likely the sensor is malfunctioning.
