How to deactivate the safety device on the Singer Futura SES 1000 embroidery machine? How can I get the hand wheel to turn again to get the machine to sew/embroider?

You can't--something is stopping the wheel from turning, and until you find out what is stopping it, your machine will be locked up. Take a look below the bobbin case, and you'll see a ***** holding a little door. It allows you to clean and see on the other side of the bobbin basket. Chances are, there's something like a broken off needle stopping the gear that turns the hook. It can also be caused by threads wrapped around the tension disks, or around the inside of the hand wheel itself. The hand wheel can be removed by removing the cap in the center--it is hiding a ***** that holds the wheel.

The center of the hand wheel looks like it should be able to be pressed inward to lock needle while winding bobbin; won't budge but will spin...


If you are trying to wind a bobbin or resume sewing, the center knob across many models of machines; is to TURN the center hub to lock or unlock the needle bar sewing action so you can wind a bobbin; or resume sewing.

Hand wheel & needle very stiff

Hai, I think your machine timing is changed. So you can't sewing properly. Please check the timing and put the oil everyday all oil parts properly.

Safety Device Activates but no error message

It sounds like there may be something inside the machine. This happened to me twice. The first time was the wrong stabilizer. The second time I had a piece of thread inside the machine. When I opened it to see the thread was activating the error beep in the machine. I hope it helps.

I just bought a brand new sewing machine used it everywas fine now i go back to sew and it say E$ and wont start

Please look again--are you SURE it doesn't say C4? That error code for your machine says there's something stopping the machine, and it's usually thread wound around something it shouldn't be? Also, check to make sure that your bobbin winder spindle is not in winding position, and also check to make sure your buttonhole lever is all the way up. Turn the hand wheel--ALWAYS TOWARDS YOU FOR ANY MACHINE--to see if it turns freely.

Blocked motor message for 2140. Has happened 3 different times. Sewing machine repair is two hours away and I need my machine today. I did all the thread things suggested with the bobbin, re threading,...

You said the hand wheel barely moves. Is that all the time? If the hand wheel is hard to turn the motor is getting overloaded and is protecting itself by stopping and giving you the error message. You need to determine why the hand wheel is tight. There could be thread caught or something might need lube. These are non oiling needed machines however sometimes a linkage might need fresh lube.

Singer stylist 534 sometimes when you stop won't start without turning balance wheel

Yes this is normal especialy with heavier fabrics. It allows more control so you build up speed gently. It is also related the limited power of the motor.
