Question about Singer CE-200 Quantum Futura Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

My futura sewing machine seems locked up

I have been using my machine for three days with little or no problem. Then, tonight, while sewing an embroidery pattern, it beeped, flashed 88 on screen and then locked up. It will not work on its own and turning the flywheel does not loosen up the machine. Can you tell me what to do, other than send the machine back.

    Take off the bottom cover under the bobbin. See if there is thread or lint stuck in the gears.

Try removing the screws that hold the needle plate on and take it off, remove the bobbin case and check for loose thread in the bobbin area. Sometimes machines lock up when a small piece of thread gets under the bobbin case, this is called being "thread locked". Hope this helps. I'll see what I can find out about the "88" error message.

I have a futura ce150 and the feed dog is raised but not moving the fabric


Try lowering the feed dog and then raising it again, but be sure to push the switch over as far as possible. Sometimes the switch will stop just a little short and the feed dog will not be 100% raised but it will seem to be to the naked eye. Hope this helps.

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)

My machine continues to run after i take my foot off the pedal.


Undo the foot control and take out the little square bit called a suppressor which you don't need these days anyway and it should be fine.
