When I install embroidery hoop light keeps blinking n saying wrong hoop size looked it up n it's saying malfunction


Ok, there are a couple of possibilities, and I'm going to include an image. I"m not sure whether you're trying to use the small or large hoop, but the first thing you should try is turn off the machine, take the hoop off entirely, then turn on the machine without anything and let it reset to its default position, which will be the center. If it has a problem there, make sure the needle it at its highest position.

Next, put the large hoop on, bring up a design, (preferably a design that came with your machine--there are sample designs in the \Library directory where the program is--that's generally in c:\program files\futuraquartet--and is designed for the hoop you're trying to use, and transmit to machine. If it tells you the hoop is the wrong size, download a patch from www.futura-support.com. If it STILL tells you you have the wrong size, reseat your USB cable into the machine and tape it in place with masking or duct tape.

The third possibility--and the one pictured in the photo I'm going to attach--is there is a tab on your hoop which indicates the hoop size, and your TAB may be off. It needs to be dead center of the sensor, which is also pictured. A while ago a BUNCH of hoops were manufactured with the tabs slightly off, and if it's off, your machine can't read the size. What generally happens there, though, is it will indicate that there is NO hoop attached, rather than the wrong size.

You can see the sensors--they're inside the arm where you put your hoop, and they're not covered up. Below it are the large hoop (top), and small hoop (bottom). The hoop tabs have to match up to the sensors exactly, and you'll be able to see if it doesn't by matching up the notch in the hoop that matches the catch in the embroidery arm.

All lights blink constant


That's an indicator that something is wrong with the machine, but it's usually user fixable. I'm going to assume that that happens when you attach the embroidery unit and turn the machine on. It indicates that for whatever reason, your machine cannot move the hoop to its default position. That could be because you have the small hoop attached (turn it on with NO hoops), the needle is not in its HIGHEST position, or the unit itself is not making a complete connection. Make sure that it is on solid level surface, raise the needle to its highest position (ALWAYS turn the wheel towards you), make sure the unit is making solid contact, and remove all hoops, and then try turning it on.

What is the symptom of a broken hoop


Sounds like you might be having problems with the machine not wanting to start sewing an embroidery pattern or not recognizing the hoop size. If the former, and the embroidery is full size (say 100x100mm), try reducing the embroidery slightly (say 98x98mm). If the latter, your embroidery unit may need slight adjustment to correctly identify the hoop. Its not an elaborate adjustment but you will probably need a profession to accomplish it.

Embroidery arm does not work


Sounds like the embroidery arm belt stop is out of adjustment. Unless you're pretty handy, take the machine and arm to a professional. If you're going to tackle it yourself, get a service manual for the machine.

Close your futura file & exit, switch off your futura machine. Disconnect the embroidery unit from the machine,move the hoop carriage a bit to the left then to the right & it should be able to move. Connect back embroidery unit to your futura machine,ensuring the connecting point click properly. Re thread the machine & ensure needle is fully up position. Now you switch on the machine, you will see hoop carriage moving and stop at its zero point. If that is OK and the earlier led blinking gone, you should be able to operate the futura embroidery program again.

How to stich embroidery


That would depend on if you have a regular home sewing machine or a embroidery machine. I'm going to assume that you have a regular machine.

There is something called free hand embroidery. you lower or disengage the feed dogs, take off the presser foot. Some use a darning foot and others just leave the foot off. Hopefully your design is already marked on the fabric. Place fabric in a regular hand embroidery so they fabric is right side up but the hoop makes it sit down in the rings. (make sense) Fit your hoop on the bed of the sewing machine, under the presser foot/presser foot bar. Lower the presser foot lever. (important for tension) and select stitch style and length. you may need to adjust tensions too.

Begin stitching, take a couple stitches... then reverse a couple... then snip the loose ends. Continue to stitch, guiding the hoop so that the needle follows the design. Start slowly and as you discover how your hand movements effect the length of the stitches... you can speed up and slow down as you need to create your design.

Brother Sewing Embroidery Machine


I agree with sylviaivie about find another repairman, they are suppose
to guarantee the work they do.
when the upper shaft is replaced & then the machine is retimed
the machine should work just fine.
but just don't take it back to that man to be repaired
here is a tip if it happens again,,
always try to cut the top thread first,
& turn the machine up on it's back to access the bottom cover
take the cover off the bottom to get access to the bobbin thread
where you can cut the bobbin thread
then you should be able to get the needle out without breaking it &
damaging the upper shaft, replace the needle & make sure
that the thread is good quality & not knotty, clean out the bobbin area of lint or thread
always change the needle on the embroidery machine every project
make sure the bobbin area is kept clean of lint or thread
clean under the needle plate at least once a week for lint if you
embroidery everyday or just often

Embroidery foot rest on hoop


Have you calibrated your machine to the hoop? Read that part of your user manual, it sounds as if it needs the hoop calibration.

I have a Do All Quilter's Hoop which I can't use


I'm a bit amazed that a Husqvarna technician was unable to do the minor adjustment to the embroidery arm - he needs to contact Husqvarna headquarters and ask for instructions. Meantime, you can still use your hoop (which by the way is my favourite hoop - it's a little beauty!). Tell your machine you are going to use the Large Hoop (6" x 9.5" or 150mm x 240mm) even though you are really using the 6" x 6" or 150mm x 150mm Do It All Hoop. Provided you have centred your design before loading it on your USb stick or floppy drive, it should work. However, just to reassure yourself, use the Check Size button on your touch screen to test the outside size of the embroidery and be sure it is not going to foul on the hoop borders. (It is the one on the second screen (press More to access this) once your have loaded your design - looks like little double arrows pointing to the corners of a square. Each time you press this button, the needle will zoom to each outer corner of your design in turn.
