    I have had this machine (futura200)(x-mas gift) and I hate it. I have had nothing but problems with it. I have tried so many different things to get it to work right. Yes I have the patch and still doesn't work right. What a waste of money. Wish I could get rid of it. I wouldn't but another one. I plan on buying a brother, I have the 270d and love everything about it. Wanted to up grade and now stuck with futura and regretting every moment. Has made me not want to embroidery anything. I will be saving up to buy a brother.

Brothers frame is much smaller I think 4 x 4. I have futura 200. found this to happen at first but now now. Make sure when threading that you floss the thread through the top part, it has plastic over it. The thread must fit properly in this part. (flossing means to run back and forth a couple of times holding thread tightly). Also, hold the 2 thread ends when you first start to embroider. Hope this helps

I have the singer futura xl-400. It's making me crazy! The embroidery is beautiful, when you can get it to work. I send the design to the machine, it will start stitching perfectly and then it starts...


Sometimes a design may not be perfect, try embroider the other designs that you have in the library, if similar problem crops up, close your files & switch off your machine & your PC, then start it all over again, if still not OK you may choose to reinstall your XL400 software then go over it again. Hope be okay.

How do you start embroidering a design where the thread breaks on a Bernina Artista 180 sewing/embroidery machine?


Most machines have a stitch counter, stitch forward and step back features. Check your manual and embroidery machine's screens for this.

IN case you have misplaced your manual I found this one for you. It's big so allow time to download.

My Janome 10000 stopped in middle of embroidering a design and the machine rebooted. it was making a bit of a whining sound as it was stitching just at the last..but now the hand wheel seems harder to...


Janmore10000 Stopped Embroidering thenstopped everything just shutting off.
If it is getting no power at all, it is probably a fuse. Thefuse is located in a little black box underneath the base of the machine, butit is NOT an easy job to take the box out, disassemble it, replace the fuse,and then reassemble the whole machine. But in your comment you mentioned that there is power tothe machine that means its not fuse problem.

It stopped embroidering in the middle of a project. the handwheel would notmove at all this means that it wasthread jam. Also check the carriage carriage if it does not move to the rightor left and gor stuck in one position or hardly moving a bit then it is out of calibration.

if your machine is outof calibration it will need to recaliberate . Something is like forcing theneedle through a thread jam would cause this. This is not an expensive repair.But a time consuming repair. Its advisable to get it done by service center,

Have futura 200. Was embroidering a design and


I had the same problem, go head with machine off and embroidery unit off also turn wheel toward you. If it still won't go try winding a bobbin that is what happened with mine it seemed to undo the stiffness. You can also take the cap off the wheel and make sure there is no thread wound around it.
Good luck if this does not work there are other tips but it would take all night to email all the steps.

Futura ce-100 embroidering in the wrong place


I decided to simply start from the beginning and start all over. I turned off the machine, detached the embroidery unit and blew into the sensor (where the machine and embroidery unit connect). I'm not sure what the problem was, but it was fine after that! Just goes to show that no matter how frustrating things can be, it pays to just take a moment and start over!!

Babylock Ellure thread issues


I have the same machine and love it. Sometimes if the thread is old that will happen to me.  And also I spray the thread with static guard before i thread the machine in dry cold weather.  Since you said you are an embroiderer I assume you are using the same weight thread top and bottom. The other thing that causes that on my machine is if there is a nick on the spool of thread I am using and the thread catches just a little as it comes off the spool.  I use a fine nail file and smooth off the edge where the little v is to reattach the thread when you are finish using it.  I never use them. You do sew a little and cut off the tail off the top thread before you let it go through the rest of design. I hope you have found the solution but I learned these tricks while having the same problem as you.

I am trying to embroider something for the first time on my viking #1 husqvarna. Do I need presser foot Q/ or R/ .If it's R,I can't find it-what does it look like? I need someone to walk me thru the steps...


embroider on #1+:
If it's a #1+ I recommend the Q (the spring works better) it's hard to put on, but worth it.
Here we go:
1>Turn off machine (always when installing or removing embroidery unit)
2>Install Q Foot. Always leave presser foot pressure (on left end of machine) at 6 for presser foot Q
3>Insert Embroidery Card
4>Insert Embroidery cassette (matching #’s with card)
5>turn on machine
6>Turn on embroidery unit (on cassette)
7>Select design
7>Thread for color 1
8>press reverse to start the machine embroidering....weeeeeeeee!

My start/stop switch will not begin sewing


Is the problem with embroidery only? If with both sewing and embroidery function and there is no error code (just 00) on the display, my wife experienced the same problem. There was an internal sensor that was bad. The sewing machine shop repaired with a new Singer part. Part was about $20, labor was $180.

PLEASE HELP!!! Pfaff creative 7570 tension problems


Check your bobbin tension also. Embroidery bobbin thread is finer than sewing thread and you may need to make adjustment on the bobbing case by turning the small screw slightly. The type of stabilizer can affect your embroidery. An excellent reference for machine embroidery is Embroidery Machine Essentials by Jeanine Twigg, available on Amazon.
