Machine won't recognize embroidery unit

I went to use the embroidery unit for the first time in a month or so and connected everything correctly and got the software open fine. However, the sewing machine doesn't recognize the embroidery unit and I cannot transfer the design to the machine. Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this? I have the Futura CE-250.

This problem has to be with the communication between the arm and the main machine. Make sure the arm is leveled, to do so, very careful move the arm higher or lower, this creates the connection between the arm and machine. When I find where the off level is I put a thick cardstock folded in half under the arm. When the communication is successful and the machine is on hooked to the computer the embroidery arm should move.

My machine does not recognize that the embroidery unit is attached. It keeps saying attach embroidery unit. Has anyone had this problem


What make and model of sewing machine do you have? I have seen this problem with a Husqvarna Viking Designer I (or similar older Viking machine). In that case, the problem was corrosion on the contacts between the embroidery unit and the sewing machine. The solution was to use an electronic contact cleaner to clean the contacts; this is one product: http://www.amazon.com/CRC-05101-QD-Electronic-Cleaner/dp/B000CCMLD0 . Make sure that the machine is unplugged. Spray the contact cleaner on the contacts. (In some cases, you should then connect the embroidery unit to the machine and remove it a few times.) Allow the product to dry before you plug in the sewing machine again.

In another case, the solution was actually easier. The owner had two similar embroidery machines. She managed to mix up which embroidery unit went with which sewing machine. Neither embroidery unit could be properly seated on the machine that she attempting to use it with. Once the embroidery unit was paired with the correct machine, both pairs worked.

I hope this helps.

What is the symptom of a broken hoop


Sounds like you might be having problems with the machine not wanting to start sewing an embroidery pattern or not recognizing the hoop size. If the former, and the embroidery is full size (say 100x100mm), try reducing the embroidery slightly (say 98x98mm). If the latter, your embroidery unit may need slight adjustment to correctly identify the hoop. Its not an elaborate adjustment but you will probably need a profession to accomplish it.

My Husqvarna designer SE embroidery unit keeps giving an error message "install hoop correctly". I've checked everything but can't get around the message. can anybody help ,?


You have probably got the machine set to use a different size hoop. Click on the hoop icon and change it to the size you are using. Hope this helps you.

You have to plug in your usb cable to the same port everytime. It will act like your machine is not there if you plug your cable into any other port.

Make sure you're using the correct foot for the stitch. Is this during sewing or embroidery? Take off the bobbin plate using the screwdriver and remove the bobbin. Make sure everything is clean under and around the shuttle. If you've ever broken a needle the tip might have fallen down into the mechanism and occasionally be jamming it.

The carriage of the embroidery unit is not move automatically to the embroidering standby position.


Is the need in upright position ?

or have you fitted the embroidery hoop correctly.
If all else fails switch off and start up again - should then automatically go to correct position.

Problems with embroidery unit


The machine should always be off when you attach the embroidery unit. Attaching it without it being turned off can damage the computer system of the machineor embroidery unit. It needs to be tested by a repairman.

Husqvarna Des 1.. won't recognize hoops


The embroidery unit needs to be calibrated. Can only been done by a trained dealer. you can relax, it is not a major issue and shuold not cost you a arm and a leg. Ask the dealer to also calibrate your touch screen and download the working hours on your machine.
