Question about Singer CE-200 Quantum Futura Computerized Sewing Machine

Futura ce 200

My futura 200 is not recognizing the small hoop. At first I got the error message to undo the hoop and reattach, then I noticed it started stitching in the bottom half of the small hoop area, hitting the plastic hoop at the very bottom. I can see it's stitiching in the same area as the large hoop. I have the parts list and think the p/n I need is 86312. I have no trouble with the large hoop
Have you seen this problem. Please suggest a plan of attack
thanks in advance

    Thank you for replying iberich. The pins on the small hoop

    are not bent at all. And it is sitting correctly. I took the cover off the arm to make sure the hoop hardware is hitting the p/n I had referred to. Seems to be hitting the wire and the contact is being made. (not sure how to check if power are going through the points)perhaps maybe that part could have a chip that possible could go bad.. Without knowing or being able to find a detailed

    picture of that part, It looks fine to me. And all I can figure that if the hoop is pushing the wire so that contact is being made with those two little pins (kinda like a set of points). then there is something wrong with that part. number 86312.

    I will try whatever is suggested.

    Thanks again and hopefully you have more suggestions.

    Sal

    Can anyone help me find a repair manual for my singer futura ce 200. I am more than willing to pay for it, I just don't know where to find a repair manual for this machine. I search and search the internet, but nothing for this machine.

    VOTIT, thank you for your comment, but it's the repair manual I need.
    I haven't been able use my small hoop on my futura 200 sewing machine. When I try to stitch, it stitches as if the large hoop was attached. I have taken the cover off the arm and the part the small hoop pins hit, looks to me like it's hitting. The points touch. I have just gotten the machine out to the shop and can't afford to take it back. So, I think it's time I learned how to repair it. I have a parts list, and know how to do basic repairs (mechanically inclined). I would check next for power going through the points, but don't know at what points to check. So if anyone can help me. Thank you.

    I have followed all troubleshooting from the singer site. I called singer in New Jersey and they want me to send it in. They will not offer any advice. I've owned the machine for a couple of years, and have followed troublshooting many times. But this is different. I can click on the small hoop in the software and use the large hoop for aperfect large hoop design. The machine is not getting the message from the software of which hoop I'm using. I've used two different computers. Same thing for both. I have a feeling a a computer chip on the futura machine. That's why I would like a repair manual.

  • bikersal Feb 05, 2009

    You know, I think you may be on the right track, and I had given that some thought. I think I will buy a new small hoop before I proceed with any more troubleshooting. My small hoop looks fine, and is hitting where it is supposed to hit. However, it's worth a try.
    thank

    I bought a new hoop. No luck. Still need help trying to figure why the small hoop isn't being read. Only embroiders like I'm using the large hoop. Need schematics for this machine and don't know where to find them. Someone must have had this problem. Please help.

  • bikersal Mar 13, 2009

    I bought a new small hoop. I still have a problem not being able to use my small hoop, the machine just doesn't read it at all. When the software says small hoop, and I transfer it to the machine, it prints out as the large hoop. I did take the embroidery arm off and clean it out and got quite a bit of thread balls. But no help

Usually a loop problem is a error in threading the machine.

Please - recheck the proper threading using your owners manual and re-try.

Joining THIS GROUP may have more technical information.
Post your question, and a user of your exact machine will get back to you!!

You have a rather expensive model that you may do more damage in the long run repairing yourself instead of taking in for professional repair.

It has a 25 year manufacturer warrany!! Get it serviced under warranty!!

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

    If it is a programming error as you describe, it is in the PLC, and not a user-replaceable part. The program may have become corrupt, or out of sync.

    Has singer offered some sort of manual reset of the machine?

    CLICK HERE for a parts store with various size hoops.



    No "service manual" is available.

    Singer says they dont provide them because of the 25 year warranty.



    Just a quick thought - Have you updated the software recently? Has the problem just developed?

Lights blinking on singer futura


The most likely cause of this is the needle is not ALL the way up, although it may look like it is. The CE machines are VERY sensitive to the needle position. The second cause is putting on the small hoop and turning on the machine; with the small hoop on, it cannot set to its default position. If you want to use the small hoop, leave all hoops off, then put in on AFTER you have turned on the machine.

My futura ce200 is driving me insane because i have the small hoop selected on the computer but the machine thinks that the large hoop is selected. How do i fix it??


Before attaching small hoop, turn on power switch to
move the carriage to embroidering standby position, and
turn off power switch.

check troubleshooting in manual

Make sure you have the latest software version. Current version you may check in About dialog under Help submenu and in the same submenu you wil find a function Live Update.
Also make sure you switch on the sewing machine either with the large hoop connected or without hoop. If sewing machine was switched on with the small hoop attached, it will provide this error message about wrong hoop.

Futura CE-200 Stops in middle of design and says wrong hoop size


Dear cjnations
Firstly we must all remember that the CE200 is a very particular machine and requires that you follow certain procedures in order for it to run smoothly. When using the small hoop, firstly you must make sure that the small hoop is selected on the screen by going to Tools, Select Hoop & clicking on small frame. Once this has been done and the design selected, you must then attach the small hoop before sending the design to the machine. If you attach the hoop after sending the design, the machine will give you the error message.
Good Luck!

Singer Futura CE 150 not recognizing small hoop


Except advices from the previous posts I suggest to check out whether you install small hoop precisely, there should not be any deflections, you need to insert it on the full length and fix it very well.

Do not switch on the machine with the small hoop attached. After changing the hoop reload (close and open again) the design or restart the software or select the small hoop manually from the menu.

Singer futura ce-200 problem, pattern mis-alignment


I have had similar problems in the past.
Do you hear a noise from the embroidery unit when the misalignment occurs ? If so, I suspect that your issue may be that you have some resistance under the hoop. Is there extra material that may be rubbing on the machine or catching somewhere. I have found that if I use some masking tape to keep all of the extra material from hitting any other parts of the machine or dragging under the edge of the hoop this error does not occur. FYI: I also stopped using the "optimize stitch speed" option at the same time. I believe that material dragging was causing the problem, but I still wonder about the stitch speed optimization feature.
