Question about Singer Futura Xl-400 All-In-One Sewing And Embroidery Machine
Im tuned in now to the point where i am getting great looking designs and lettering, however for example if i am doing a monogram.... and it finishes the first letter, moves to the second letter, the first time the needle goes down it apparently strikes the plate and breaks. can i turn the tension lower than "E" while embroidering? I have a sneaky feeling that might be the problem.
My needles break occasionally- either due to wrong needle for fabric type, or density of the embroidered design or Machine set at speed to fast for the design as each design have their own techniques when designing files. or thread tension, which is where a thread stand comes in handy

Check your needle for burrs or bends. If your needle is bent it will hit the plate. Try changing the needle

Happened to me to All I did was to press the embroidary foot a little backwards and check if the little arm that rest on the shaft that goes up and down is seating correclty.

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 embroidery foot isn't on properly. I have had this exact same problem and have had many needles break... it's because I didn't have the foot on nice and straight, even though it seemed like it. Try taking it off and putting it back on - you may have to do it several times, but once it's on properly, the needle should be dead-center of the little metal loop of the embroidery foot. If it's off, even a bit, the needle will break. Hope that helps. Remember -- patience, patience, patience!!!
