Question about Singer CE-200 Quantum Futura Computerized Sewing Machine

I pulled out the lubricating strip under the bobbin

I accidentally pulled out the lubricating strip under the bobbin thinking it was a piece of fluff when clearing a nesting problem.
I poked it back in with an open paperclip, will this be OK do you think?

    I am not talking about winding the bobbin, so I don't understand your reply.



    By the way, I don't know how I managed to get my question under Futura CE200 as mine is a CE-350. Sorry about the confusion.

I've done the same thing with my Janome 1600, I took it to the service man and he replaced the "wick" for me and gave it a service at the same time.

Your replacement of the wick is probably okay but if your machine hasn't had a service in the past 2 years then consider taking it to be serviced and ask the mechanic to replace the wick for you. If you leave it, then apply some oil to the wick, clear sewing machine oil or Triflow is good.

Bobbin Winding 1 Put spool of thread on spool pin. ] Use spool cushion when using cross wound thread. ] Use spool cap when using parallelwound thread. 2 Lift thread guide bar all the way up, and run thread through triangular thread guide as shown in drawing. 3Run thread through bobbin winding thread guide as shown in drawing. 4 Run thread through top thread notch 1, and align bottom thread notch 2 with guide pin on bobbin winder shaft. 5 Press bobbin stop up against empty bobbin. If the bobbin stop does not slide easily between the top and bottom of the bobbin, check that the bobbin is seated properly with the guide pin (4) inserted into the lower notch 6 While holding the end of the thread, step on the foot controller for a few seconds. Once enough thread has wound itself around the bobbin to hold itself in place, release the foot controller and trim the excess thread. 7 Stop winding when bobbin Begin
8 Manually move bobbin stop back to original position. 9 Cut thread and remove bobbin.

bobbin insertion 1 Lift slide plate (and open bobbin door). 2 Put bobbin into the bobbin case. ] Run thread through thread notch and under latch spring, so that a length of about 10 cm is exposed. ] Use a bobbin case with an idling prevention spring. 3 Pull the latch lever of the bobbin case out and push the bobbin case into the shuttle race and release the latch lever. ] If the latch lever is not all the way on the hook, it may fly off during sewing and cause lower thread breakage. 4 Lower slide plate and close bobbin door, following numbers 1 2 above in order. 6 While holding the end of the thread, step on the foot controller for a few seconds. Once enough thread has wound itself around the bobbin to hold itself in place, release the foot controller and trim the excess thread. 7 Stop winding when bobbin is full. Take foot off foot controller. * Place the thread end so that it does not protrude from the bobbin. Bobbin Stop
so this will be ok and no need to worry about this

Machine sewing too slow,


Sewing to slow
the leading causes of a sewing machine running too slow are the following: "Thread jam, Incorrect oil or lubricant used, Not lubricated correctly, Machine unused for long time - Gummed up, Belt too tight or too loose, Machine needs thorough cleaning, Worn or bent parts."
Unplug the machine. Look for thread wrapped around the motor shafts or any other motor or bobbin part. Use tweezers to lift thread to snip with scissors. Use tweezers to pull the thread away from the machine parts. Plug in the machine and test.
Unplug the Singer machine. Remove the bobbin and insert a newly wound bobbin. Blow the dust from the bobbin area. Use tweezers to pull out any thread pieces in the bobbin area gears. Plug in machine and test
How often you will need to clean and lubricate the machine will depend on how often you will use it. When in regular use, the machine should be cleaned periodically to remove lint and fluff which may have accumulated around the working parts."
could also be either the motor or the foot control.
May also need to be serviced.

Problem with thread getting caught under bobbin holder


have you applied any lubricant to the bobbin holder the one that holds the bobbin? I would suggest using your manual and lube your machine. sounds to me like your mechanism is sticking.

I have a Janome model 577 (I know it's old!!) and


If the top tension is on 0 I suspect the problem begins in the bobbin, make sure first of all the bobbin is turning anti clockwise in the bobbin case, when you pull the thread through the bobbin case there should be slight resistence, if it is too loose turn the screw on the bobbin case clockwise about a quarter of a turn to tighten, if it is not making muh difference you may have fluff stuck under the spring on the bobbin casem take a fine sewing needle and slide it under the spring to see if you can get any fluff out, top tension about 4 or 5

Do you have a manual for this machine? You need to follow the cleaning instructions and remove the needle plate, and clean under the bobbin holder. I've attached an image from my Janoma 6500 manual, I think yours has a top loading bobbin inside a magnetic bobbin case so this info should work for your model. There may be a little triangular shaped tool in your kit but any short flat blade screwdriver will remove the two setscrews. (always good idea to unscrew off the pressure foot and take out the needle first so you've got room to work).

PLEASE NOTE: If you've never pulled this bobbin area apart before, good idea to snap pics with your digital camera as you go to refer to and for reference next time!!

This uncovers the bobbin holder area, you'll see there is a black plastic holder which your bobbin goes into which has the tension device on the side and this then sits inside an outer metal casing which is the hook race. The bobbin holder is held there by a magnet underneath it and sits up against another little stopper. Look at the bobbin case and the stopper, there should be two red marks that must line up. Are they???

If the answer is no, then you need to remove the bobbin case, clean out any lint and fluff using your little brush that came with the machine, and you may also have pieces of thread caught in here too. Once clean, place the bobbin case back into the outer surround, under the other piece and lining up the two red marks. This is where photos are so helpful.

Now replace the needle plate and screws, pressure foot, pop in a new needle and thread everything up again.

If the thread continues to catch then you may have managed to damage the bobbin case; as they are plastic if they move out of position the needle can catch and burr or pierce them. If this has happened you could try to smooth out the burring with an emery board or similar. Or you may need to replace it if damaged badly. I've changed mine twice so far because I've pierced it with the needle several times.
I hope that this helps you out, good luck with your machine.tally_girl_3.jpg

The thread on the bottom bunches up all down at the bottom than bunches up


Usually problems like this are caused by improper bobbin winding and installation, incorrect tension, the wrong needle for project, or simply not grasping the threads and gently pulling them backwards when you start a seam.

1. Make sure you are threading the machine correctly.
2. Check your tension.
3. Check the bobbin, make sure it's wound properly and that you don't have the bobbin in upside down.
4. Check for bits of fluff and thread in the bobbin race area.
5. Change your needle, they wear out, get bent, dull... etc. You should have several different types on hand at all times.
6. Grasp both the threads gently and pull slightly backwards when you begin a seam. this will assure that your bobbin thread doesn't get all bunched up under the fabric.
7. Always test tension, needles etc., on a scrap piece of fabric before you begin sewing your project.

:o) Smile... sewing is fun... remember?

The thread seems to be getting caught under the plate on something.


Do you have a manual for this machine? You need to follow the cleaning instructions and remove the needle plate, and clean under the bobbin holder. I've attached an image from my Janoma 6500 manual, it looks very similar to this Elna so I'm thinking its the same design bobbin and race. There may be a little triangular shaped tool in your kit but any short flat blade screwdriver will remove the two setscrews. (always good idea to unscrew off the pressure foot and take out the needle first so you've got room).

4d embroidery machine is pulling bobbin thread to front


Not sure what a 4D machine is, but guessing you have a Designer of some kind. Have you put in a new bobbin since you sewed out the successful design? Did you wind it yourself or is it a pre-wound? If wound yourself, maybe the tension on the bobbinfill was not correct and the bobbin is not wound properly as a result. Wind a new bobbin - take the machine speed down three clicks and wind the bobbinfill around the round metal tension bit in a figure-of-eight instead of around once only (i.e. go under the disc, around to the left then over the top then across to the bobbin filling mechanism).
Floss out the bobbin tension slot with a piece of strong sewing thread to be sure there is no fluff in there, and when you re-load the bobbin be sure to listen for the "click" as the thread goes into the tension slot.
Sometimes designs are badly digitised and they will not sew out nicely. If you are sure your fabric is correctly hooped, the bobbin is correctly wound and securely in the bobbin case, try loosening the upper thread tension by two clicks and see if that helps the problem to go away. (SET menu, numbers and plus and minus signs under the icon that looks like a DNA thread - minus to decrease tension.)

Bobbin thread getting all nested underneath fabric


I have found that either the bobbin is not threaded correctly or the top is not threaded correctly. Try re-threading your machine. I always sew on a test piece before sewing on my project.
