Question about Singer Futura Xl-400 All-In-One Sewing And Embroidery Machine

1 Answer

I bought the SINGER FUTURA XL400 in august. It sews,monograms an embroiders. Sews like a dream with no issues. The monogramming part has me at my wits end. It skips stiches, leaves big loops an looks bad UNLESS i set threw it, stop, an back stitch every mess up. For example a 5 letter name that is 2 to 2-1/2 inches tall takes an hour to monogram due to fixing all the mistakes. Any suggestions??? I have been looking for tutorials or someone to give me lessons. Also I bought a BUZZTOOL version 4 to unzip designs i have bought offline an cant figure out how to get the designs from my computer folder transfered to my machine. Please Help.

Be sure to install a brand new sharp needle before sewing. Check that the needle, thread, and fabric are compatible. An embroidery needle or top stitch needle may help.

When threading the top thread, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot before threading to insure the thread seats in the tension disk.

SOURCE: how do you monogram and embroider with this sewing

Turn the pattern selector to the pattern you want, set the width and length dials to your liking.

Your machine does not do embroidery.

SOURCE: I would like to find

My advice is to try going to a shop that sells machines and gives lessons for free. I bought from JoAnn's and they gave me lessons on it. I bought a Brother for $549 and I am not sorry because I actually know how to use it thanks to the girls at JoAnn's. I would not be using all of the features if I didn't have the hands on instruction. The manual is great for a refresher but nothing beats doing it and someone answering your questions. Think about it before you buy online, you may save a few bucks but in the long run you will be happy to have a relationship with people who care if you have a problem and can help you.

Sewing machine skips stitches
1.needle inserted incorrectly--flat side of the needle faces the shaft
round needle--groove of needle faces away from the shaft
2.Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the needle. Place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back of the machine.
If round needle--the groove in the needle faces away from the shaft
Push needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go.
3.possible bent needle--lay needle on flat surface & roll needle over, if the needle does not roll good -replace
4.blunt needle point--needle makes a popping sound when needle penetrates the fabric--replace needle
5.needle not all the way up in needle holder--loosen needle clamp screw & push the needle up until it stops then tighten screw
6.incorrect threading--one step missed in sequence of threading can cause machine to skip stitches
7.wrong needle in machine--check instruction manual--some machines can use a generic needle with no problem--some can't--
8.size of needle & thread not compatible--
Using the wrong type needle can cause problems,,
A needle to fine for heavy fabric can bend or break when it hit's the fabric
And a too large needle can make puncture holes in the fabric and pull unevenly while stitching

I'm looking for a Manuel and a start up cd for a xl 400 singer embroidering machine..


Singer has the manual for the Futura XL400 on the product site: http://www.singerco.com/products/2168/xl-400-futura . The direct link to the instruction manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/bbd749beb7151a637824d777a05c51b4fb50b0a4.pdf . There is also a quick start guide. Additional documentation and driver upgrade software is here: http://futura-support.com/products/xl-400 . Unfortunately, Singer doesn't provide replacement CDs if you lost the original one. According to the directions for the driver upgrade, you need the CD to install the upgrade.

The software packages are available for sale at Amazon and other vendors. Some CDs may be available on E-bay.

I hope the manual helps.

Why is the fabric bunching into the bobbin when embroidering with the Singer Futura


bobbin thread is too high pressure or too low pressure on teh top adjustment!

remove bobbin and turn tension screw about 1/8turn left (anticlockwise) check if still grabbing, if so - top thread turn about 1/4 turn (at embroidery ir should do automatically, but sometimes need kick...).

check if it is still grabbing on the bottom, do it grab during straight? zigzag? double zigzag? if do not - setting on the pattern need to be look at. if it tangle as well on these three - need definitely servicing...

follow manual how to adjust.
