SOURCE: hoop arm won't slide to start position

You can try re-loading the program, it is possible the static spark has corrupted one of the chips if this is the case and the re-loading does not fix the problem then I am afraid you need the services of a sewing machine tech.

Do not switch on the machine with the small hoop attached. After changing the hoop reload (close and open again) the design or restart the software or select the small hoop manually from the menu.

SOURCE: Futura CE-200 Stops in middle of design and says wrong hoop size

Dear cjnations
Firstly we must all remember that the CE200 is a very particular machine and requires that you follow certain procedures in order for it to run smoothly. When using the small hoop, firstly you must make sure that the small hoop is selected on the screen by going to Tools, Select Hoop & clicking on small frame. Once this has been done and the design selected, you must then attach the small hoop before sending the design to the machine. If you attach the hoop after sending the design, the machine will give you the error message.
Good Luck!

Singer futura quartet embroidery machine's bobbin area is tangling up the top thread. the top thread never breaks it just clogs up in the bobbin compartment can you help?


Be sure that when you thread the top thread, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot. This allows the thread to seat firmly in the tension disk. Sounds like what you are experiencing is called bird nesting or thread nesting.

Futura quartet keeps shredding the top thread, help?


AVOID old or bargain bin thread--use only fresh, good quality thread. Try a brand new needle, perhaps switch to a top-stitch needle. Change to a different brand of thread. Check to make sure the top thread follows the correct threadpath and that no guides have been skipped or threaded out of order. Check that the top tension is not set too tight.

Singer futura quartet seqs 6000 keeps giving me a broken thread error. Thread is not broken and I have done tried the unwaxed dental floss and canned air, Please help


Hello
Embroidery sewing machines will often give this error message due to low "drag" on the thread. Try placing the spool of thread upright into a cup on the floor and lead-up the thread as normal for threading. Make sure that the thread does not catch on the thread lock on the spool.

Happy stitching

Singer futura quartet connection error


I need more information to answer this question. Is this a error message on your computer screen? Or on the machine? I know Singer Futura machines require a USB cable connection to work; check USB drivers are installed properly on the compatible version of windows as well.

WHY does my SINGER 420 xl leave thread loops on the top of my design...I am so sick of this machine..Singer does NOT stand behind their products..I WILL NEVER BUY SINGER AGAIN!


You're probably correct. The new Singers are not what they used to be...Singer was bought out a few years ago and many buyers have registered their regrets and disappointment with the new products and service.

http://evadman.blogspot.com/2011/12/singer-xl-400-futura-sewing-embroidery.html

Most complaints about sewing machine problems concern thread loops under the fabric, which are usually caused by the upper thread. Your problem is not as common. Generally, when thread problems occur on the top of the fabric, it is a bobbin issue.

Try a brand new needle. Make sure the needle, thread, and fabric are compatible. Also, check that the needle is installed correctly.

All About Needles

Remove the thread from the machine. Check that the machine is clean--no lint, dust bunnies, thread pieces in the bobbin area, stuck in the feed dogs, or under the needleplate.

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading. Rethread the machine from the beginning. Check that the thread path is correct for the upper thread and that the bobbin case is loaded and threaded properly. Use the same thread for both upper and bobbin.

Most machine standard upper tension is set at the midway point. However, this is just a beginning point. The tension differs from one machine to another and may need adjusting depending on the fabric you are sewing.

Retest your machine.

If loops are still forming on the top of the fabric, then the bobbin tension may be too loose. Try tightening the bobbin tension (only 1/8th of a turn at a time!).

Understanding Thread Tension Threads

Sometimes it is a thread issue. Experiment with different brands of thread. Avoid old or bargain bin threads (the thread in bins at the fabric store are not the best, also Coats & Clark may not work well in your machine). Stick with better quality threads, ie Gutermann, Aurofil, Isocord, etc. Be sure to use the type of thread that is suitable for your project, ie do not use embroidery or cotton thread for sewing garment seams unless you want to be embarrassed when the seams start popping... Polyester used to be the bane of sewing projects but is now used for many items because the quality has improved and, in some cases, surpassed the former favorite cotton. Polyester is light weight but strong. Some machines just do better with one brand of thread over another.

You may also consider testing the machine with different types of fabric to see if it performs better with a particular fabric type or weight.

If it continues to be a problem, perhaps the bobbin case is damaged or malfunctioning. If you cannot find the answer to your problem, you may just need to take it for service.

Skipping straight stitches with proper bobbin size, needle in place same thread for both needle and thread, tried different threads and bobbins that worked before. What can I do please?


Have you checked the tension? That could be one reason for skipping threads. Another cause would be cheap thread. If you don't use good quality thread it can gum up the feed dogs and cause skipped stitches. The third reason I can think of off the top of my head is if you're sewing a fabric with more or less bulk than your previous projects.

Why does it sew a couple of stitches and quit?


Sounds like you're getting a false "thread break" error. That's caused because the thread is either not in the tension disk at all, or the thread is not seated deeply enough between the disks and triggers the thread out sensor.

You MUST thread your machine with the presser foot UP. That is the only time the tension disks are spread to accept the thread. If you are doing that and getting the error, take the cover off (page 81 in your user's manual--it's designed to be removed for cleaning), and using UNWAXED ONLY dental floss or hand embroidery floss, gently floss between your tension disks to see if there are thread ends or lint preventing the thread from seating. To locate the tension disks, raise and lower your foot, and you'll see it move.

Futura Quartet embroidery thread breaks


first unthread completely the machine and rethread it checking all the places run smooth. Change the needle for a new one with the correct size for your fabric and project. Clean the bobbin case and surround areas with a brush making sure is neat and no any fluf left behind. Put a fresh feel bobbin and try again. Sure will do the trick and will run perfect again. Happy sewing!!!!!
