    Hi, I dont know how long ago you posted this, but I JUST got the machine, have the SAME problem with the error 19.. the thing will sew just fine for 7 stitches, when I reach the 8th it beeps and stops with Error 19 flashing.. the sewing is fine, but it disagrees. How did you get it to stop? Im scared to even try to embroider cause i dont know if it will finish it or not.
    Please email me back,
    Thanks SO much for ANYthing!!

Try re-threading the machine. Also, when you put the thread trough the clear plastic part on the top left at the back, swish it back and forth a couple times before bringing it all the way through. It is a little tip someone told me and seems to work wonders.

I actually found that the thread was releasing from the roll too quickly, the machine comes with a little netting that can go over the reel of thread and it keeps it tight until pulled by the machine. once i put the net on never got the error again

I ran into this problem as well. Root cause was that I threaded the top thread incorrectly. There is an illustration on top of the sewing machine that shows you the proper way to thread it. Once I re-threaded properly, the problem went away.

WHY does my SINGER 420 xl leave thread loops on the top of my design...I am so sick of this machine..Singer does NOT stand behind their products..I WILL NEVER BUY SINGER AGAIN!


You're probably correct. The new Singers are not what they used to be...Singer was bought out a few years ago and many buyers have registered their regrets and disappointment with the new products and service.

http://evadman.blogspot.com/2011/12/singer-xl-400-futura-sewing-embroidery.html

Most complaints about sewing machine problems concern thread loops under the fabric, which are usually caused by the upper thread. Your problem is not as common. Generally, when thread problems occur on the top of the fabric, it is a bobbin issue.

Try a brand new needle. Make sure the needle, thread, and fabric are compatible. Also, check that the needle is installed correctly.

https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjV3sKLxKvNAhUjE1IKHdbNDb4QFggkMAE&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.schmetzneedles.com%2Flearning%2Fpdf%2Fschmetz-needle-chart.pdf&usg=AFQjCNHTR52AmqwzvyCjbXmD5Ch52Va5_Q

All About Needles

Remove the thread from the machine. Check that the machine is clean--no lint, dust bunnies, thread pieces in the bobbin area, stuck in the feed dogs, or under the needleplate.

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading. Rethread the machine from the beginning. Check that the thread path is correct for the upper thread and that the bobbin case is loaded and threaded properly. Use the same thread for both upper and bobbin.

Most machine standard upper tension is set at the midway point. However, this is just a beginning point. The tension differs from one machine to another and may need adjusting depending on the fabric you are sewing.

Retest your machine.

If loops are still forming on the top of the fabric, then the bobbin tension may be too loose. Try tightening the bobbin tension (only 1/8th of a turn at a time!).

Understanding Thread Tension Threads

Sometimes it is a thread issue. Experiment with different brands of thread. Avoid old or bargain bin threads (the thread in bins at the fabric store are not the best, also Coats & Clark may not work well in your machine). Stick with better quality threads, ie Gutermann, Aurofil, Isocord, etc. Be sure to use the type of thread that is suitable for your project, ie do not use embroidery or cotton thread for sewing garment seams unless you want to be embarrassed when the seams start popping... Polyester used to be the bane of sewing projects but is now used for many items because the quality has improved and, in some cases, surpassed the former favorite cotton. Polyester is light weight but strong. Some machines just do better with one brand of thread over another.

You may also consider testing the machine with different types of fabric to see if it performs better with a particular fabric type or weight.

If it continues to be a problem, perhaps the bobbin case is damaged or malfunctioning. If you cannot find the answer to your problem, you may just need to take it for service.

Singer ce100 is skipping stitches when needle is in center position


You don't say what you are sewing so I'm going to give you general answers in hopes it helps.

1. Needles: There is no such thing as a universal needle. Make sure you are using the proper needle for your fabric. This goes for thread too... make sure it's sized for the needle.

2. Make sure the bobbin is threaded correctly (poorly wound bobbins will cause problems too)

3 Improperly threaded machine. Make sure you area threading it correctly with the foot in the UP position.

4. If you are a material puller... shop it. It is never good to pull your fabric through the machine as you sew.

5. Stitch length. simple rule: Fat fabric.. long stitch, fine/thin fabric short stitch.

I'm not familiar with your futura abut I've noticed new home machines take a way presser foot pressure adjustments... which can cause issues too.

Machine beeps and stops sewing, no error message displayed


sounds like not through the tension plate (on top) right... rethread and make sure you hold the thread taunt toward you as you putt through top tension... you should hear a slight click and some resistance...

New Singer Futura machine stops & tries to revert to overlock.


Sorry to say but it sounds to me that you need to take your machine in to be checked.

Singer CE-100 Futura


Dear Nancy,
If you do not get any error message, and the proble does not depends on your procedure ( eg, you left straight stiches plate mounted, or check that is not set width to zero for the straight stitch etc. ) Then a serviceman need to reset the machine from a jumper on mainboard, or reinstalling firmware image.
If you are not in a hurry, you can also try posting the question on this website.
If is not a simple solution problem, and the machine is new , the best thing to do is calling service, as suggested by the Singer manual.

Regards

Singer Futura CE200 Software


If you use the standard FUTURA software. you will have to buy an add-on for the Software.

Singer offers an add-on called Hyperfont which allows to digitize any true type font on the computer.

The software is available in stores and online, but be sure to get the right version for your software. There are versions for the Futura CE150, CE 250 etc, and there are other versions for the CE100 and CE200, so be careful.

You should also keep in mind that although you can digitize any true type font with this software, not every font is suitable for embroidering and will stitch out nicely.

Sincerely yours,

Aki
