Question about Singer Sewing Machines

1 Answer

How do I fix my singer.

I have a singer futura xl-420. When sewing a straight stitch, it will stop sewing and blink error code 6. When I look up in the manual it says that the top thread has broken, however it isn't broken. I've re-threaded it, and same thing. When I flip the project over, the bobbin thread is all messed up. What is going on?I have tried re-threading top and bottom threads, changed bobbins. It will also randomly 'jump' then the top thread will break.

The problem most likely is thread tension possibly on the upper thread
It is not pulling the thread up from the bottom allowing the bottom thread to become tangled

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.

Machine beeps and stops sewing, no error message displayed


sounds like not through the tension plate (on top) right... rethread and make sure you hold the thread taunt toward you as you putt through top tension... you should hear a slight click and some resistance...

New Singer Futura machine stops & tries to revert to overlock.


Sorry to say but it sounds to me that you need to take your machine in to be checked.

Singer CE-100 Futura


Dear Nancy,
If you do not get any error message, and the proble does not depends on your procedure ( eg, you left straight stiches plate mounted, or check that is not set width to zero for the straight stitch etc. ) Then a serviceman need to reset the machine from a jumper on mainboard, or reinstalling firmware image.
If you are not in a hurry, you can also try posting the question on this website.
If is not a simple solution problem, and the machine is new , the best thing to do is calling service, as suggested by the Singer manual.

Regards

Flashing lights


This is a copy of the post on your premium solution thread.

According to Singer guidelines , if there is only red blinking light, then there is an fault inside the machine, unless it reset disconnecting from power.
If there is an error code with format EM-01 - EM-09 tell me which error you get and I should find a fix.
Here is a complete user guide, check pages 90-92 for common errors.
If you have no error message, and light does not go out with power disconnect then it may be a faulty control board.
In this case I suggest doing a last attempt removing all threads, and reset design unplug from power 10/15 mins.

Let me know if you still have the problem.

This error indictaes that the upper thread is broken. If it is not the sensor is telling the computer the thread is broken. Try tightening the upper thread tension some and rethread the upper thread.
