Question about Brother CE5000 Computerized Sewing Machine

CE-5000 thumping sound when I sew, messy stitching

No sure if this is normal or not but when I am sewing at a quicker speed the machine makes a thumping sound. Its not necessarily loud but I am worried about breaking the needle or something else, Also another issue I was having last night, when I was sewing with stitch # 05 and 06 (using the correct foot) the thread pattern was really messy looking on the top of the material and very neat on the underside. I would flip the material over but than I cannot see what I am sewing. Any suggestions to fix these issues would be greatly appreciated

Any sound out of the ordinary could mean that a part is worn or fixing to break or something is loose
it's very possible that the machine needs to be serviced

SOURCE: Brother vx790, my stitches are reversed ( top is on botom & bottom is on top )

It sounds like your tensions are out of adjustment. Your upper tension should be between 3-5 and make sure the tension in your bobbin case is not too tight as well. Pull the thread through the bobbin case and make sure it comes out with a small amount of resistance. If no resistance, tighten the tension just a bit, if too much resistance, loosen it just a small bit at a time.

Check the bobbin to ensure it is installed correctly. Your bobbin is probably in incorrectly. You shouldn't have to change your tention yet but it is possible. this may sound stupid but the other culprit may be that your forgot to put the foot down. Hope this helps. Let us know. If you found that the tension adjustment did help call your local service center and ask for the in-house tech, ask them where the original # position is when it came from the manufacturer and re-adjust the top tention to that.

SOURCE: My ls2125i won't stitch

Start slowly, make sure your thread trails are long enough, I had this problem a LOT when I first started using this machine. (mainly because it was my first machine!)

Fabric bulge- Don't try to push the fabric through the machine, let the feed dogs do it. Your job is to guide the fabric.

Thread jumps- Also, like Outdoorsman said, the tension is probably off. On this machine, the tension knob is easy to find. It's the small one with the numbers on it. "0 1 2 3 4-5-6 7 8 9" 4-5-6 are your optimal sewing tensions. I usually sew on 4 or 5, depending on my fabric and type of stitch.

No stitches- Your lower thread may not be being grabbed properly/bobbin case may be jumping out of position. Open the lower case and make sure your bobbin case is secure, and the thread is grabbed properly.

Hope this helps!

Makes a thumping noise


Most likely your needle needs replaced. As they get older, or hit a pin, they will dull. You can usually tell by your stitch quality, or the thumping sound you are hearing.

Not stitching correctly after using pattern selectors - zigzag very messy stitch


Describe in more detail a messy stitch. It may be the cam follower that creates the patterns is not aligned and is contacting two different cams at the same time. The machine then sews both patterns at the same time. The solution may require an expert.

Can you sew leather or vinyl on Husqvarna 415? If so, what tension, needle and foot should I use?


Ok. Depending on the thickness... garment weight leathers can be sewn with a domestic machine... Most often an even feed foot (the home version of a walking foot) is needed. You will likely need a larger leather needle and somewhat longer stitches than you would normally sew.

As for stitches looking messy on the back that is a top tension problem... you'll need to tighten the tension until that goes away. AFTER you have made sure you have your machine threaded correctly with the presser foot in the up position.

It sounds as though the problem is with the tension in the bobbin. Check to make sure the thread is pulled through the tensioner on the bobbin case, if it is check and adjust the tension on the case.

Can a twin needle be used with the Futura ce-200?


If the needle plate and presser foot are wide enough to accommodate the double needle, then you can use it.

Make sure the needle position is center and the stitch type is straight stitch.

Hand walk the needle at couple of stitches to be absolutely sure all is clear.
