THE SINGER 6235 ARE BOTH GOOD. I'VE LOOKED AT THE FUTURA AND BELIEVE IT IS NEWER THAN THE 6235. THE FUTURA WILL GIVE MORE CHOICES OF STITCHES. EITHER ONE WILL BE A GOOD PURCHASE. EITHER ONE WILL BE HEAVY SO YOU KNOW THERE IS A LOT OF METAL FOR LONG LIFE. THE ORIGINAL PRICE IS HARD TO FIND OUT. IF YOU WANT TO KNOW TODAYS SELLING PRICE YOU CAN CHECK EBAY FOR A GOOD INDICATOR. THE PRICE AT THE TIME YOU ARE SPEAKING ABOUT MIGHT HAVE BEEN AROUND $200-$400.

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.

I have this machine for more than 30 yrs-- when this happens, the top thread is not pulled through the little disks correctly when you go up before getting to the arm. Here is a threading diagram

Just received a singer futura II model 920 which seems to sew just right. When I tried to wind a bobbin, I just can't get it done.


If it is a new machine, take it for warranty service. Sounds like perhaps something is misaligned with the release lever. In the meantime, a standalone bobbin winder can be purchased at JoAnn's, Hancocks, or Amazon.com for about $35 (helps reduce wear & tear on your machine).
===============

It's very difficult to say whether it is worth the price of repair. On the other hand, what would you do with a machine that doesn't work? It could be something very simple that can be repaired for a small price, or it could be something expensive. (However, since you indicate it is only the bobbin winder that is faulty, otherwise the machine works with that one exception, you can save up to get the bobbin winder fixed.) FWIW, a standard check, clean & oil could cost around $100 (based on what I currently pay for my machines). However, you could ask what it would cost to fix the bobbin winder only.

From a search on eBay:
http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=singer+futura+920

You can track similar machines and their sales prices to determine if it would be worth fixing your machine. Even if you don't, you can still purchase the standalone bobbin winder and continue to use the machine anyway. A working machine is better than none at all.

SINGER Futura XL-400


230 V @ 50 Hz; 64 W for European version, so 0.27 Amps ; if you're in the US, just call a retailer and ask them to read the voltage and wattage or amperage off the nameplate of the machine. Watts = Volts x Amps. Since US voltage is 110, 64 Watts would mean the machine was drawing about 0.6 Amps. That's assuming it's an equivalent motor to the European version.

Singer Futura II - Model 920 Sewing bottom thread is very loose, top thread perfect. Lost manuel in move. Dianne


This happens when we forget to have the presser foot raised when threading.

What looks like the fault of the bobbin is actually the top thread not forming a tight stitch with the bobbin thread.

When the machine is threaded with the foot down, the tension control is closed and the thread cannot enter the control as it should. When you begin to sew, the tension control cannot do it's job.

If the machine is already threaded, lift the presser foot and pull about 10" of thread from the needle, or re-thread the machine with the presser foot up.

Is the Singer CE-1oo Futura Windows Vista compatible? Also, can you put a #1 card in it to do the alphabet?


No it's not, All Singer futura users should be intitled to a 100% refund, or Singer should install new chips in the c-100's for former users. This is obsurb! you invest in the machine, and when the software upgrades itself, you are unable to use your machine. This is so awful
