Question about Singer Quantum XL-1000 Computerized Sewing Machine

Singer Quantum XL 1 red button not working

I took my Singer Quantum XL 1 machine in for service and now the red button (for emergency stop and also push for manual sewing - it is below the reverse button on the face of the machine over the needle bar) doesn't work and he has no idea what is wrong. Originally it jammed when I tried an embroidery stitch with the open throat foot and not the embroidery one, but it unjammed when he looked inside the left cover to service it. What could it be, and is it an easy fix? I don't want to take it in to someone else as it is $100 just to show up in my area (and most of these guys are dishonest and charge more with no fix). This guy is trained in many machines, just doesn't have the service manual for this Singer XL 1 as he usually works more on European machines and older domestic ones.

You can purchase the service manual from Sewing Parts Online. If your model is not listed, just email or phone them and they can get it for you.
Just offhand, it sounds to me like he accidentally unplugged the connector that runs it on the motherboard. If so, it's a very easy fix -- the motherboard is under the display and you can often see it by removing the bottom cover (the base). All of those plugs only plug in the right way, and only ONE plug will fit the correct connector.

It depends on your software version. The list of supported formats could be found in the manual, on Futura support site or checked right through the sofware menu (File->Open, File->Save as)

SOURCE: I need a throat plate

I would suggest contacting singer themselves in your country first off.

They may run mail order spares sales.

Or there is, or who carry a wide range of spares.

The touch screen on my singer quantum xl-1000 lights up but no icons are showing. What should I do?

I have instructions for recalibrating the screen on an XL-6000, which is similar enough that it should work; however, give it a try at your own risk. I would point out, though, that at this point you probably have nothing to lose.

While the machine is turned off, you hold down the scissors button, reverse button, and the green/red light button all at the same time. While pressing these buttons, you turn your machine on and can let go of the buttons. You take the pointy end of your lint brush and use it as a stylus to touch a little red dot on the screen (that also has that pen looking thing that I had messed with and that caused my trouble), the dot will move to another position and you will touch it again. It moves again two more times, and each time you will touch it with the pointy end of the brush. Then you will touch the treasure chest box on the screen to save what you did. You will then turn off the machine and turn it back on, and then things work again!
