If I remember correctly this machine has a little arm in the bobbin case area. You will need to open the slide plate, move that arm towards the middle of the bobbin. Thread your machine as normal, take the thread going through the needle eye and wrap it around the thumb screw a couple times, then start "sewing" your bobbin should begin filling, once started, you can release the thread wrapped around the thumbscrew. Once filled, you simply close the slide plate and that moves the arm back into place and start sewing.

My Singer Futura II, model 920 won't sew. The top thread is threaded correctly, new needle, tension set correctly and the bobbin won't wind with thread. I have had this machine since the early 1970


IF IT WON'T SEW AND THE BOBBIN WON'T TURN FREELY THEN THE SIZE OF THE BOBBIN IS WRONG. MAKE SURE IT IS THE RIGHT HEIGHT AND WIDTH. THE RIGHT TENSION OF THE BOBBIN HAS TO BE RIGHT OR IT WON'T SEW RIGHT EITHER. IF THE BOBBIN DOESN'T WIND WHEN YOU ATTEMPTING TO REFILL IT THEN YOU HAVE A BOBBIN THAT IS THE WRONG HEIGHT.

Singer Futura II - Model 920 My bottom thread will not pick up and the top thread piles in a ball. I did thread the machine with the presser foot raised. Could there be a tension problem? Also where should...


you might try checking the needle, it could be damaged, bent, or blunt
then see if you can pick up the bobbin thread.
if you still can't pick up the bobbin thread it's possible that the machine could be out of time.. it would need to be serviced by a sewing machine repair shop & they can tell you if your sewing machine is one that has to be oiled or a self oiling machine.

Singer Futura II - Model 920 Sewing bottom thread is very loose, top thread perfect. Lost manuel in move. Dianne


This happens when we forget to have the presser foot raised when threading.

What looks like the fault of the bobbin is actually the top thread not forming a tight stitch with the bobbin thread.

When the machine is threaded with the foot down, the tension control is closed and the thread cannot enter the control as it should. When you begin to sew, the tension control cannot do it's job.

If the machine is already threaded, lift the presser foot and pull about 10" of thread from the needle, or re-thread the machine with the presser foot up.

Singer futura 250. while sewing the E4 code


Are you using bobbin thread? Is your thead new? Is themachine threaded correctly?

Make sure that when you thread the upper part the thread go under the circle that pull it.

Another thing is that when you hit the start button, pull the upper thread until the machine goes two or three times. It helps the bobbin thread to come up and the machine start sewing.I you leave it along the thread sometimes doesnot comes up and that is why the machine beeps.

I use this technique to make sure it doesnt beep and to cut the thread (the one at the beginning so it doesn't mess my design)

The manual doesn't explain how to thread bobbin correctly


You thread the bobin by putting spool on post and then winding around the tension thingy.
I looked on line and saw a video how to do it

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,
Beth

Dear Wendy,

The E4, error message means the safety device is activated. Machine is locked up due to thread entangled with the bobbin case. Remove the needle plate and bobbin case. Check for any thread around the hook area. Also check your handwheel. It should turn freely. Good Luck
