SOURCE: singer futura XL400 thread breaking

Unthread the machine and start from scratch. After rethreading make sure your spool of thread has free play at the reel (not caught on anything) then check the thread tension make sure it's not too tight. Also check the bobbin is in place correctly and the bobbin has been wound correctly not too tight. If it is still happening it may be an adjustment to be done by a tech? Also try different threat, faulty thread can do that as well.

I have Singer Futura XL400. When I turn the power switch on, LED lights come on but no motor power. The panel with the stitch lights does not come on and machine will not sew. This is a new machine.

If you just purchased this machine, bring it back to the retailer where it was purchased. If it is a defective machine, they should replace it. If you've had the machine for a while, it may still be under warranty, so take it for service.

I just bought a cs6000i sewing machine from USA. I live in India. Why is there smoke coming out of my new sewing machine? Is there a problem with the voltage?

Yes, India voltage is 240, USA is 110. You have probably fried it, should have purchased a machine from another 240V country like Australia of used a voltage converter to break it down.

New machine, plug in turn on and it beeps at me and all the lights are blinking and it is doing nothing. It is a singer futura xl400

If it's new, take it back immediately! You'll end up with it in the shop more than your home. Go to a local sewing machine dealer with a repair shop. They can tell you which brands are reliable, and will fit your needs.

Xl400 futura software won't work on windows xp

I owned an XL-400, and now own an XL-550 and Quintet, which all run on the same software. Could you be more specific about the problem you're having?

I have a feeling that you received the basic Futura software, as well as a second CD with the add-on software like AutoPunch, and THAT software refuses to install, giving you a message that the basic Futura software hasn't been installed. It has, but XP has not yet installed the drivers into Windows. What you need to do is after installing the basic Software, you need to plug the machine into the computer and turn it on. You will get a message, "Installing new Hardware." Bring up the Futura program once and then close it, and NOW you will be able to install the add-on software.

Software wont open for Singer Futura XL400

Before any Singer Futura embroidery software will open, your machine must be on and connected by USB cable to the PC. It serves as a dongle. Many high-end programs require that a USB plug called a dongle be inserted before their program will open; connecting the PC serves as a substitute for that.
