Question about Singer CE-200 Quantum Futura Computerized Sewing Machine

2 Answers

The needle constantly breaks while embroidering. I tried every type of needle with no difference. It goes ok for a few seconds till the needle goes down and hits the foot and breaks. I do have on the correct foot for embroidery. It is threaded correctly also. It seems to be a design flaw with the foot. When the foot presses down on the fabric the hinge forces it to go upward diagonally. Then when the needle goes down it hits the back of the foot and snaps. Please help!!! My machine is a Singer Futura CE-250

My foot does this with different thickness of fabrics, it will make the foot land in different, areas, sometimes making the needle hit the foot. Always check needle position before you start embroidering. once your hoop is ready, check the clearance. I often have to use a small roll of non slip material under the foot handle, the one used to bring the foot down. And I use this to adjust the needle postition so it will always land in the middle of the embroidery foot. There is also a way to adjust the height of the needle arm but that's too complicated to get into here and I've never personally tried it.

Sounds like your tension is too tight and the thread is pulling your needle. Also, make your that you needle position button is on center. If it is on left or right it will cause your needle to snap.

Needle breaking while embroidering


Could be tension is too tight. But there are also several other possibilities, ie something is not in alignment, so the needle is hitting the presser foot, needle plate, the needle is deflecting off the fabric. You might also try a different needle brand or type (ie, embroidery, top stitch, etc.)

Having problems with metallic thread breaking constantly. I have adjusted tension up and down. I am using the net over the thread as directed in them manual. The bobbin thread continues to show on


I'm not exactly familiar with your machine but... a few things you should know. 1. You need a metallic thread Needle. or at least one with a larger hole. 2. Check your bobbin carrier, if anything catches or jams between between the spring and the case it can loosen the bobbin tension and make the top show too much bobbin color. 3. If your bobbin spring becomes grooved from the wear of the thread... same thing. 4. If your spring and everything is ok and clean... tighten the tiny screws to tighten the bobbin tension some.

Singer ce350 bobbin thread on top


Be sure when you are threading the top thread that you ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot. This releases the tension disk and allows the thread to seat properly.

Have you gone back and re-tested on your test fabric? Does it work okay on the test fabric? If so, then there's a suspicion that it has something to do with the fabric, needle & thread of your project. Is your project fabric very dense, heavy... Are you using a stabilizer? A hoop--is it taut, not stretched? Make sure the fabric is not trampolining. Could be an incompatibility. The needle & thread may be having difficulty piercing the fabric. Try a different weight needle, perhaps a microtex or embroidery needle.

Thread breaks when embroidering


Try changing threads. If you're not using embroidery thread specifically, the "treatments" they use on different threads can really cause problems.

Viking 1+--Thread breaks during embroidery


If the thread will not run through the tension mech on 0 then it is probably stuck on a tight setting. It can be a bit complicated but the tension mech can be stripped/cleaned/free'd up. Another possible cause is the path of the thread from the spool to the needle any deviation from the correct path increases the tension at the needle. If you do not know the history of the machine I would suggest a thorough clean and service.
