Question about Singer CE-100 Futura Computerized Sewing Machine

The Machine Lights are Beeping and Flashing

Hi, I just received my sewing machine a couple of days ago and was eagerly trying to use it today. When I depress my foot on the foot peddle, the green light just below the reverse function turns red, the machine beeps and then the it stops sewing. If I lift my foot off of the peddle a little, the red light still stays lit, but I can still sew a few stitches then it happens all over again. If I continue to try to sew, all the lights on the machine start flashing and the machine stops. HELP! Thanks, Cynthia

    M-I-L has CE100 and we have it set up for embroidery. Worked fine until yesterday when all the panel lights started flashing and beeping. When I opened a design and tried to send to machine I received a lower thread or bobbin error. I have checked and replaced thread, bobbin, and needle to no avail. Any ideas.

    I am having the same problem and I am ready to throw it out the window,I am thinking about dragging out my mother's 60 year old works!

    There is nothing more irritating than that blanky blank beeping. Please help!

    Mine does the same. I had it checked out at a store and they fixed it for a couple uses then it continued to do it. No matter how hard I try it won't stop beeping after a few stiches!

    I guess nobody has a solution yet....I have the same problem!

    This sounds like a Manufacturer defect. Too many customers are having the same issue. I think we all need to complain to Singer and see what happens. My machine starts to sew for a little while then starts beeping and then sews for a second and beeps. I have used this machine maybe 5 times and all five times it does the same thing. We need to take action. I will email the company because they need to be held liable. We can not all be doing the same thing wrong.

    have you solved this problem yet?

    I've threaded and re-threaded and it does not seem to be that.

    I have had my CE100 for several years, It has NEVER embroidered despite replacing everything and trying everything in the manual and singer futura website. I kept it just because it was still good for sewing. Now, the machine sews a few stiches then beeps and flashes like everyone here as described and nothing I do or service people do will solve the issue. Singer is of no help at all and has never been even when it was under warranty...they just told me to get back to the place I purchased it from, which was also no help. At time of purchase it was nearly 500$$ and I cannot afford to replace it now. If anyone has reached any solutions to this problem now I'd appreciate an update.

    Thanks so much

I plugged the sewing machine in it started working but my foot was not on the peddle looked and button was not stuck under peddle so what do.

The pedal pushes on the button which is nothing more than a on/off switch. Even if the button is not currently depressed, there could be a short inside. If yours is the type with a removable pedal, unplug it and see if the machine stops. If it does, there is definitely a short in the button.

My older husky sewing machine runs on a couple of threads before stoping each time, it is not the foot peddle.

...most likely it is the foot control pedal. Try your on another machine perhaps. The control pedal is the only way power can get to the motor ....

How to repair a non-working foot peddle on a Singer 6215C

There are a few things you can do. If you are even a little technically savvy, UNPLUG the sewing machine then take a detailed look at the pedal cord from the pedal all the way to the machine and check for any damage, pinch points, etc. If it all looks good, you should be able to open the foot pedal to see inside. There should be a small limit switch that actuates when the foot pedal is depressed. Manually cycle the pedal to ensure that the pedal mechanism is making contact with the limit switch. Listen to the limit switch as it should click when you first engage the pedal. I cannot tell you exactly what you would have to do to replace the pedal but after you have exhausted what I have suggested, I would take it to a sew & vac shop and they can replace it for you. It should not be that expensive. You can call one or two shops and get quotes for replacing the pedal.

Pfaff triptronic 2040 sewing machine

Could be a couple of things:
  1. Foot control is bad - take foot control to your local Pfaff dealer to try on one of their machines. If their machine won't run either, it's the foot control and you can look into repair/replacement.
  2. Machine has a short or some type or computer board problem - take machine to local Pfaff dealer and try with one of their known working foot controls. If the machine still doesn't work, your dealer will need to diagnose what is wrong.
Hope this helps.

Happy stitching,
Kim & Linnette
