Question about Singer CE-200 Quantum Futura Computerized Sewing Machine
A short time ago I began using some rayon embroidery thread I recently bought. Up to this time I have exclusively used Madeira thread. After stitching one design with this new (made in China) thread, my needle broke in half. I put in a new needle & rethreaded but now my machine will only go 5-6 stitches before it shreds my thread at the needle.
I have adjusted the tension from E to 2 & that seemed to help a little bit but it is still shredding even after I went back to my Madeira thread.
Have I done permanent damage or is the machine just not used to this new needle?
No damage to the machine yet
check the thread size you are using as you may have to use a needle with a bigger eye
thread is made by winding the material around and around then using a product to hold the material ends together
as a result thread will not last indefinitely and will break easily
you may have to use only thread from manufacturers that you know make good thread

Sounds like the timing is a little out.
If you remove the needle plate and turn the handwheel manually watch for the lower looper as it swings behind the Left needle....the needles ought to rise by only about 2mm before the looper passes......the looper must pass the needle above the eye to catch the thread, and be so close as to be barely touching the rear of the needles......if the left needle thread is not picked up, it may be the timing, or the distance between needle and looper.
For the uninitiated, there are a myriad of variables in correctly timing an overlocker (serger), and without the manual to refer to the correct parameters, you will rapidly descend down a road of despair....if you move a looper to advance or ****** the timing, you risk looper collision and a broken looper is almost as much as a service, so my advice is do the test to see if the timing is the likely culprit, and if so, take the opportunity to give the old girl a treat.
If you need to save for a while to do it, just use the 3 thread option for the time being.

I have had similar problems in the past.
Do you hear a noise from the embroidery unit when the misalignment occurs ? If so, I suspect that your issue may be that you have some resistance under the hoop. Is there extra material that may be rubbing on the machine or catching somewhere. I have found that if I use some masking tape to keep all of the extra material from hitting any other parts of the machine or dragging under the edge of the hoop this error does not occur. FYI: I also stopped using the "optimize stitch speed" option at the same time. I believe that material dragging was causing the problem, but I still wonder about the stitch speed optimization feature.

if your machine's needle threads from front to back, make sure that the flat part of the needle shank points to the rear of the machine. If it threads from left to right, the flat side should face right, etc.

I have this same machine and it does this sometimes, too. I've found it's usually due to a couple of things: 1. The thread is caught on the spool in the little **** that holds the initial starter piece. If you turn the spool around with the **** on the side away from the bobbin maker, that usually does it. 2. The needle is not in with the thread going from front to back (it may be in with the thread going from side to side). 3. The thread is bad. (I had one spool that actually had "lumps" in it!
Hope this helps - good luck.
