Futura 250 e4

I was embroidering and it seemed to be working fine. The machine started smoking and now I only get message e4 but there isn't any thread problems, machine has been cleaned and there doesn't appear to be anything locking the machine up.

Error code 04 is that the safety device is activated. I think if it is smoking, it's time to take it to a dealer/repairman/someone who can look at it and tell you what's going on.

    I had the same thing happen to mine (only I did not see smoke, but there was definitely a smell). I was wondering what the problem was. When I took it in to a repairman he said he couldn't figure it out. I know that the F2 fuse keeps blowing, but we cannot figure out why.

I have an error reading e1 but the bobbin and thread are fine


You need to hold the thread tightly when you do your first 5 or 6 stitches. The pull out card on the machine will tell you exactly what the E1 error mean

HAVING A PROBLEM WITH MACHINE JAMMING UP AROUND BOBBIN AREA WHEN TRYING TO FREEHAND EMBROIDER IT STARTS OFF OK THEN QUICKLY JAMS UP HAVE ADJUSTED THE FOOTPLATE SO THERE ARE NO TEETH


Check your tension first by sewing a wide zig zag stitch. Does the top of the stitch and the bottom look identical? The sides of the stitch should look like a hole where the thread disappears to the other side, with no extra thread from the other side coming through. It also should lie flat and not be puckering in the middle. When it looks identical and no puckering the tension is correct. Use the same type of material and thread you will be using for the embordery. The bottom side of the stitch is effected by the TOP tension. The top side of the stitch by the BOTTOM tension.

Are you stretching the material you're hand embordering with a hoop?

The dog feed needs to be totally down and if your machine has an adjustment the tension on the foot should be lessened too. (not all machines allow for that adjustment).

Last but not least make sure you have the right needle for the job and material.

Jamming up in the bobbin area would most likely be from the top tension being too loose but also make sure the material isn't getting pulled down in by stretching it with an embordery hoop. Do use a presser foot... a wide clear one is best.

When I try to set the time on my electric wolfgang puck pressure cooker, I get an "E4" and a beep. What is the problem?


I actually have one I use all the time at home. We LOVE it but this seems to a common issue.
the problem is a Signal Switch Malfunction. It has to do with the power switch and the pressure switch from what I have been able to find out. Mine doesn't have a pressure problem it just goes to E4 once you set the time. I gave the switch a good smack and it has been working for a while. This is the second time and this worked both times now. I am sure the switch will have to be replaced at some time.
I have come across this error when I am cooking rice and then trying to pressure cook something else immediately after. I have found that If I release the pressure valve and manually let the steam release, then my chances of getting the getting the E4 errror are less, but it recommends not to do that. :( Another way I have gotten rid of the code was to open the machine. Let it cool off by washing the lid and pulling the pan inster out of the base and let that cool as well. Then I will unplug the machine and basically start all over. The error will go away after some time either way, it's just unfortunate that it can't go from meal to meal when you have several different dishes you need to make. Don't THROW away your machine with an E4 error, just give it time to reset
