Singer futura CE-100 4 blinking reds lights

When sewing a straight stitch, the machine will stop and the red light will blink 4 times. Then you can sew again for about an inch and it will do it again. I have rethreaded the machine. Cleaned out under the face plate. I can't find any discription of this error in the book.

    My machine keeps blinking a red light on stitch 15 and 16. I unattached the hoop and turned it on and off, but the lights are still blinking.

Hold onto the thread that is coming out of the needle, and pull on the top of it (by the spool of thread) to tighten it. Then it should work fint.

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.

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.

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.

I have had the same problem with my machine as well. have you tryed, keeping it hooked to your computer while sewing, even if you are not using your embroidery unit it still needs to be hooked up, that seems to have helped some with the beeping.
