Question about Singer CE-200 Quantum Futura Computerized Sewing Machine

I have a Singer Futura CE-250 and when I am embroidering and have to change thread color I often get an 88 error. There is nothing in the manual that tells me what this error code is. Can anyone help with this?

I have a singer Futura CE-250. I am having problems with the tension I think. While embroidering the top thread is showing completely on the underside of the material. In other words the bobbin thread...


One of the things they don't really tell you about embroidering with the singer machines is that you really do need to use the same color in both the bobbin and the top. No matter how much you adjust the tension, you will still end up with some of the thread from both showing through on the other side, unlike with most other machines.

I found this out from a Singer technician about 3 years ago when I had the same problem with my CE 150 and was going nuts! He worked with both Singers, Vikings and Huskvarna's. and saved my sanity after demonstrating a lot of technical stuff that basically showed me why Singers did this.

Save your sanity-just bite the bullet and use the same thread in the bobbin as you do in the top.

Bobbin thread is coming to top when embroidering. I have changed needle and re-threaded several times


Just an FYI-the bobbin thread needs to match your top thread. The majority of the thread that appears in the top of your embroidery actually IS the bobbin thread. The machine is working correctly. Don't use a bobbin full of white thread-instead, thread a bobbin with the color your doing the embroidery work in to match and you will have a perfectly beautiful embroidery.

Hi, I'm trying to embroider using my Singer Futura CE-100. After it starts to embroider, it will either bunch up bobbin side or the machine will beep, and the computer says to turn it off, remove hoop,...


could be a threading problem. on the top of the machine, where you go under the plate, pull the thread back and forth like you are flossing. you should feel the thread snap around the 2 wheels, then continue threading. hope it helps

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.

Can't seem to embroider


brothers frame is much smaller I think 4 x 4. I have futura 200. found this to happen at first but now now. Make sure when threading that you floss the thread through the top part, it has plastic over it. The thread must fit properly in this part. (flossing means to run back and forth a couple of times holding thread tightly). Also, hold the 2 thread ends when you first start to embroider. Hope this helps

Needle breaking-CE 250


I had that same problem and it was due to the thread being too tight. Put the thread net on your thread and it should be ok.

Bobbin Thread


I have had the same problem. I always just used the same color of bobbin thread as on the top. It is a pain to change inbetween each block, but the designs usually look perfect. I will have to try playing with the tension.

My machine is giving me an error 88 and keeps flashing fast when I turn it on.


I had that problem when the machine was not threaded correctly. I now floss the thread back and forth through the tension area everty time I thread the machine, to make sure the thread is in the right place.
