Problems with Singer CE-150... the LED light #19 keeps coming on, but I KNOW it isn't threaded incorrectly..

Hello!

I desperately need some help with my machine. I purchased a week ago and followed the manual exactly when threading. The machine's LED light #19 keeps coming on and won't let me do more than 10 stitches at a time. I have re-threaded, used different thread, different bobbins and re-read the manual 15 times to no avail. Have you heard of this problem before with other users? Should I contact Singer's help line? Please help me, I am ready to take this darn thing back to the store..

Thank you,
Gloria I have broken 4 needles just trying to embroider a simple name. What am I doing wrong? A friend says that it has something to do with the bobbin. Is there a trick that I don't know?!?!? My machine is actually a Singer CE-150.

    I have the same problem. Someone PLEASE HELP!!! The error light comes on after I stitch about 2". The stiches look fine . I have tried rethreading bobbin and top thead. Turning off machine and resetting, tried other stitches and differant thread. This is so frustating. All this money for this machine and my old $79.00 Brother seems to be a better machine.

    A friend of mine has the same machine and loves it. She took a class on it and learned that it is the way I am threading the machine. She said that something needs to click. I tried it the way she said and have not had the problem anymore... I did not hear a click but I did something right:) She also said that the bobbin needs to click?????

This machine uses a rotary thread break sensor. If you look at the top left of your machine when it is running the sensor (white dial) should be spinning. Threading around this part is critical. Make sure it spins when you pull thread through the needle. if it does not you have missed something in threading. If this is spinning and machine still stops it is likely the sensor is malfunctioning.

SOURCE: What part(s) would I need to embroider baseball

Hi,
It depends where do you want the embroidery to be.
If is on the front part of the cap there are two ways:
One is with sticky stabilize rmaking sure all the parts of the cap are laying flat on the sticky paper.
The second way is with a special cap attachment (sells for around 440) that comes also for the singer futura.

SOURCE: Constant thread breakage.

Well it sounds like you're using a decent thread, that can often be the issue. Just wondering if your top thread is too tight? Might be worth fiddling with the tension to see.

Another thought could be look at the trouble shooting guide in your manual as most have one, but my gut instinct would be the tension.

Testimonial: "Yes I checked everything on the tension and the trouble shooting in the manual. Noticed the thread on the one roll had been twined backwards. "

It must not be inserted right, check your manual and if you do not have it handy, go to singerco.com and download one for free. You can cause real damage if it is loose, so be careful that something isn't broken and not letting it seat right.

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,
Beth

Singer Ce-150 Error 19


The top little circle you think you're supposed to wrap your string around - the one that you wrap the thread around to fill the bobbin -- thats not what you're supposed to wrap it around. Im an idiot, and thats what I was using. My friend Amanda showed me what I did wrong.. LOL

reduce the upper tension until the thread doesn't show on top anymore. This will probably solve both problems.The problem you describe is mechanical not computer related.

I have a CE-250 and I was having problems getting this message. After doing some research, I discovered that it was the thread sensor not sensing the thread. Try rethreading it or cleaning out your sensor area. It works for me when I get this message
