Singer Futura 150 - White Bobbin thread shows through

I have a new Singer Futura-150 and have also installed a program called "Monogram Wizard" that has additional fonts. When I embroider smaller letters or letters with narrow lines, the white bobbin thread shows on the top - outside - of the fabric, as if the tension is not set correctly. I set it on "E" as instructed and even adjusted it lower, added additional stabilizer. Nothing seems to work.

Dear Magarita, The safety device is activated when thread gets entangled around the bobbin case. First check by removing the plastic see-through plate. If necessary remove the 2 scews on the metal needle plate and remove the bobbin case completely. Put it back and test by turning the handwheel. It should turn freely.

Hope this solves your problem.

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.

SOURCE: keeps "birdnesting", besides rethreading, how do I fix?

when you have bunching on the bottom, you have a problem with the top thread: no tension. (and visa versa) Make sure the thread runs through the tension discs, these discs are activated when you put the presser foot down, so you want to thread the machine with the foot up, also feel if there no burrs, hooks, or whatever, so your top thread comes smooth off the spool, no jerking.

I have a futura ce 150 and my bobbin thread won't catch


Are you able to bring the bobbin thread to the top of the needle plate, but it's skipping stitches, or you can't "catch" the bobbin thread to start sewing at all.

If you can't "catch" it at all, your machine's hook is no longer synchronizing, and you will need to have it retimed by a technician. The good news is, timing is not something that is unique per manufacturer, which means ANY sewing machine technician should be able to do it.

I have a Singer Futura XL 400 the bobbin thread is showing on the top


Tension between top and bottom is a BALANCE, and when the bobbin thread shows on top, it means that your top tension is tighter than your bobbin tension, so it is pulling the bobbin thread up above the fabric.

Loosen the top tension to balance it--it should only take a couple of "ticks"--no more than one number. Loosening the top tension, by the way, is AWAY from the "S".

I have a singer Futura CE-250. I am having problems with the tension I think. While embroidering the top thread is showing completely on the underside of the material. In other words the bobbin thread...


One of the things they don't really tell you about embroidering with the singer machines is that you really do need to use the same color in both the bobbin and the top. No matter how much you adjust the tension, you will still end up with some of the thread from both showing through on the other side, unlike with most other machines.

I found this out from a Singer technician about 3 years ago when I had the same problem with my CE 150 and was going nuts! He worked with both Singers, Vikings and Huskvarna's. and saved my sanity after demonstrating a lot of technical stuff that basically showed me why Singers did this.

Save your sanity-just bite the bullet and use the same thread in the bobbin as you do in the top.

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).

Can't thread the bobbin on a singer futura CE 150


Be sure the bobbin thread is coming off from the left. There is a picture on my Futura bed that shows the correct way to insert the bobbin. If the thread is comming off from the right you will have the problem you described.

Good luck,

Bobbin/threading


Could be acouple of things. The tension on the thread or the bobbin. The needle not in all the way. Wrong type of needle for the thickness of the material. My problem was always trying to pull or push the fabric with the needle in the material - cause a bend, then the tip snags the side of the bobbin hole. Snap it's gone.

As your friend suggested, check the threading of the bobbin, the click she/he might be talking about it the first rotation of the bobbin, then being snagged by the needle thread. Good luck!

I have a Futura CE 150 and it has been working great. I just started using it again, and now when I stitch it out on the edges it has the bobbin thread on it.. I threaded the bobbin right, and also the...


This has worked for me.

1. Make sure the tension dial is set at E.
2. Remove the bobbin case with thread in it.
3. Tape three quarters to the end of the thread.
4. Hold the bobbin case up. Given your problem, the quarters should be dropping to the ground.
5. Tighten the tension screw until the quarters are just a tiny bit away from dropping. You don't want it tighter than that because it will be too tight.
6. Put the bobbin in and test embroider.

This fix came from Jim at the Futura Yahoo group. It is a group well worth joining.

Problem with bobbin case - new machine Singer CE 100


My problem is solved (I think...that is a knock on wood kind of thing). Upon recommendation from another Futura user, I remove and clean my bobbin case and I put a drop of oil in the little hole under my bobbin case about every 5th or 6th monogram use. AND, I pitched all of my bobbins that were 15 and not 15J (I had some that were 15 and they were the culprit as well.) I have had no more problem. It seemed the least bit of lint caused me a lot of birdnesting. I also stopped using rayon thread and use only polyester and bobbin fill in the bobbin. I have got to say I am thoroughly enjoying my machine these days. Please try these things before giving up on this so user friendly machine.
