Question about Singer CE-100 Futura Computerized Sewing Machine

4 Answers

I have a singer futura ce-250/ce-350 machine.

I have read and followed the directions of threading this machine to a T; still the thread is bunching and the E1 indicator comes on. The bobbin is correct, the threading is correct and this d_____ machine can't perform a straight stich without bunching. I've also tried every tension and it still the thread bunches and the indicator comes on. PLEASE help. I have had this machine for almost a year and have only used it four times.

You need to do a tension test
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} Tension assembly test. To do this test. Pull the thread through the tension assembly and test it to make sure the tension is working correctly.
(To do this test, adjust your tension setting to normal or medium or 5 or something in the middle. Raise the presser foot and pull the thread through the tension. It should pull easily!! Lower the presser foot and pull the thread. It should pull noticeably harder.)
If it doesn’t work this way then you probably have a piece of thread or lint stuck inside the tension discs. To remove it, turn the tension to 0 zero and raise the presser foot.Using a small screwdriver, open the space between the discs and spray with canned or compressed air. The stuff should come out. Do the tension test again to make sure you got everything and then try sewing again.

I have been sewing for quite some time on other machines. I assumed I knew all that I needed to do and I have the same problem, bunching undeneathe. I found out my problem was twofold. One when you thread the top part - you should pull the thread back and forth in the top thread guide. (#1 in the manual page 6). The second thing was the curly tail in front. It really needs both of these. I hope this helps you. Made me feel really inexperienced. I actually pulled out the manual.

I have a Futura ce250 that the embroidery unit stoped working due to a bad stepper motor. Singer want to sell me on for $250 dollars. Is that a way to just purchase a replacement assembly or get a new assembly with out having to purchase the single motor stepper motor for that price. Singer has no service any where, I've contacted them. They will not return my calls or emails. I like the Unit but the Singer customer service is (COMNA A GO).

I have the Futura 250 & every time I sew quickly or use the embroidery, my bobbin bowl pops up and jams everything. I pulled out the manual to make sure I am threading the bobbin correctly. It says to pull thread to the left until I hear a click. I never hear a click. Does this matter?

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).

Is the Singer CE-1oo Futura Windows Vista compatible? Also, can you put a #1 card in it to do the alphabet?


No it's not, All Singer futura users should be intitled to a 100% refund, or Singer should install new chips in the c-100's for former users. This is obsurb! you invest in the machine, and when the software upgrades itself, you are unable to use your machine. This is so awful

While sewing on singer quantum futura ce-200 sewing machine, thread bunchedup on underside of fabric and bobbin case flew out more than once.


Mine did this and it seemed impossible to fix. My problem was a tiny bit of thread stuck in the bobbin cover (but it could be anywhere in the thread route). I ran dental floss through the path the thread follows and also in the bobbin cover and poof out came a small piece of thread that all my looking missed. Hope this helps.

could be a threading problem. on the top of the machine, where you go under the plate, pull the thread back and forth like you are flossing. you should feel the thread snap around the 2 wheels, then continue threading. hope it helps

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.
