Make sure your thread goes under the plate of the carrusel. If not the machine think is not threaded and it beeps. Thread the machine with your left hand and 1.Pull the thread with your other hand to make sure it "clicks" to every part of the machine.

2.Make sure you are using good quality bobbin thread. There are some kinds that the Futura doesn't like.

3.There is a little screw attached to the bobbin carrusel. You can try to turn it just a little bit. The reason is that this carrusel gets loose after a while.

4. Clean and oil your machine at least monthly.

Hope something helps!

Why is my bobbin thread is showing while embroidering


Your tension on top can be loosened. If this causes your stitch to be too loose then tighten your bobbin tension. Just think of the top and bottom tensions as a tug of war. They must be even to get the stitch in the middle of the material.

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.

My Singer Futura keeps beeping and stopping every few seconds.


There are a few problems this could be. Your top thread could be broken or about to break; your bobbin thread could be broken, about to break or empty/about to become empty and is loose around the bobbin; you could have a birds' nest (a mass of thread just under the fabric/presser foot and/or within the feed dog and bobbin) forming and causing a jam; or it could be your Futura having a little bit of a hissy fit. Obviously, if you've checked for broken thread you need to move on. Check for a birds' nest by removing the fabric and clip your threads. If you find one, clear it, rethread your bobbin and begin sewing again. If there's no birds' nest, then place the fabric back in and try sewing/embroidering again. If the machine acts up again, I recommend removing the fabric/hoop, rethreading your top and bobbin threads, replacing fabric/hoop and resuming where you left off. If the machine still gives you trouble, try hitting the start button for a couple of times and seeing if the problem doesn't simply resolve itself. When you're embroidering areas that have a few small, short stitches only, the machine seems to act up a little and then behaves fine once you bypass the area. Be sure to take all of the other steps first, though, because a birds' nest will RUIN a beautiful seam or embroidery.

I have the futura ce-100. When embroidering it


This annoys the heck out of me, cause it happens a lot more than it should. There can be some valid reasons as to why it happens, though.

Your top thread could be broken or about to break; your bobbin thread could be broken, about to break or empty/about to become empty and is loose around the bobbin; you could have a birds' nest (a mass of thread just under the fabric/presser foot and/or within the feed dog and bobbin) forming and causing a jam; or it could be your Futura having a little bit of a hissy fit. Obviously, if you've checked for broken thread you need to move on. Check for a birds' nest by removing the fabric and clip your threads. If you find one, clear it, rethread your bobbin and begin sewing again. If there's no birds' nest, then place the fabric back in and try sewing/embroidering again. If the machine acts up again, I recommend removing the fabric/hoop, rethreading your top and bobbin threads, replacing fabric/hoop and resuming where you left off. If the machine still gives you trouble, try hitting the start button for a couple of times and seeing if the problem doesn't simply resolve itself.

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.

Being simple minded as i am, if your singer ce100 works the stitch looks good just be glad you are not having the problems so many are, if you want to see bobbin thread on bottom tighten top tension

Top thread will not pick up bobbin thread makes a big loopy mess


This is sometimes caused by the upper thread not threaded correctly. You need to thread it first with the pressure foot in the up position. You need to "floss" the thread into the clear plastic guide as this is where the tension is. The tension should be set to E for embroidering. Also make sure you get the bobbin thread in the slot on the bobbin case. Also, lower your pressure foot before you begin embroidering. Hope this helps!

I have a Futura CE 150 and it has been working great. I just started using it again, and now when I stitch it out on the edges it has the bobbin thread on it.. I threaded the bobbin right, and also the...


This has worked for me.

1. Make sure the tension dial is set at E.
2. Remove the bobbin case with thread in it.
3. Tape three quarters to the end of the thread.
4. Hold the bobbin case up. Given your problem, the quarters should be dropping to the ground.
5. Tighten the tension screw until the quarters are just a tiny bit away from dropping. You don't want it tighter than that because it will be too tight.
6. Put the bobbin in and test embroider.

This fix came from Jim at the Futura Yahoo group. It is a group well worth joining.

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.
