Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I have a Singer Futura Quartet SEQS-6700 sewing machine. Keep getting error code 16, but there is no explanation in the product manual. Can you help?

Serviced the bobbin case area yesterday, removing all the lint from my sewing projects. Sewed with it for about an hour last night and it worked beautifully. Today I turn the machine on, sew about six inches and then get error code 16. The manual does not explain #16.

    Hello Elakayel114 ... Error 16 relates to a variety to possibilities concerning "communication" between your sewing machine and the embroidery software. Check that the USB is firmly connected. Are all the software drivers installed and still active? Is software completely installed? Sometimes installing a new programme or a new driver or updating a driver for another programme may cause your embroidery software driver/s to become de-activated. 'sorry that your nearest dealership is so far away, could you possibly telephone them and have them walk you through the fix as it sounds like you may need to re-install missing drivers OR re-install the embroidery programme but it should not be done without un-installing the one you already have on board. Hopefully this sheds some light on your challenge. Let me know how it goes.

Generally the error message is due to "some" electrical overload. It settles itself most times by turning off the sewing machine for a few seconds to allow complete shut-down and then turning it back on. It the error message returns, it is best to visit your qualified local technician.

SOURCE: bobbin thread bunching

I agree with brodering about the damage to your bobbin case, it should be smooth all over, as the thread travels across the top surface to form a stitch, and the small step on the underside locates it as the hook spins underneath.

Needle strikes often compromise the surface, as will the hook colliding with the under surface... and although it is possible to gently polish off the damage with fine grain wet & dry (black) sand paper (emery paper) there are limits to the success depending on the degree of damage.

While on the subject, ensure the bobbin case and hook race beneath are clean and free of lint or thread.

SOURCE: Bobbin Case

I'm having a similar problem today. I took out the bobbin case and when I went to put it back in, the whole system locks up. I've tired cleaning, changing needle taking the metal plate and piece that holds bobbin case out and put it all back in after cleaning. Nothing. My symptom is I can't get a complete stitch, the needle goes down, the whole deal acts like it will work and as soon as the arm of the bobbin case gets to 8 o' clock on the gears, It jams and won't hardly move. I cannot pull the bobbin case out easily after this. Perhaps there is someone out there that can help us!

SOURCE: cannot thread bobbin

If I remember correctly this machine has a little arm in the bobbin case area. You will need to open the slide plate, move that arm towards the middle of the bobbin. Thread your machine as normal, take the thread going through the needle eye and wrap it around the thumb screw a couple times, then start "sewing" your bobbin should begin filling, once started, you can release the thread wrapped around the thumbscrew. Once filled, you simply close the slide plate and that moves the arm back into place and start sewing.

The opening fits on the right side, toward back. There is the silver ring with the slot in it for the bobbin. That slot is facing the sewer.

SOURCE: Singer Sewing Machine model 9224. Bobbin thread

If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.

Let me know.

Singer futura quartet seqs 6000 keeps giving me a broken thread error. Thread is not broken and I have done tried the unwaxed dental floss and canned air, Please help


Hello
Embroidery sewing machines will often give this error message due to low "drag" on the thread. Try placing the spool of thread upright into a cup on the floor and lead-up the thread as normal for threading. Make sure that the thread does not catch on the thread lock on the spool.

Happy stitching

Two questions i own a futura embroidiery sewing machine. I need to purchase a beading foot where can i purchase it 2) My bobbin casing keeps loosing I have to constantly stop sewing and tighten it


First, look for a replacement bobbin case for your machine. And while you doing that, also look for a beading foot.

Try some of the online sewing vendors:

Bobbin Case Singer 416444401

Singer SEQS 6000 Futura Quartet Par

Finding a beading foot make be difficult, but you may be able to find a snap-on adapter and a snap-on beading foot for your machine.

Which one is the best for Embroidery Singer XL 420 or Singer SEQs 6000?


Difficult to advise since we really don't know your criteria.

SEQS 6000 FUTURA QUARTET
FWIW, I would be hesitant to purchase a machine with so many functions, ie sewing, embroidery, serging. Seems like a lot of things to go wrong.

XL 420 FUTURA

Your best bet is to do a lot of research on the internet. Read the reviews from people who have purchased these machines. Then go talk to a Singer specialist. Only when you have gathered as much information as you can are you able to make an educated decision.

Singer futura quartet connection error


I need more information to answer this question. Is this a error message on your computer screen? Or on the machine? I know Singer Futura machines require a USB cable connection to work; check USB drivers are installed properly on the compatible version of windows as well.
