Question about Singer CE-200 Quantum Futura Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

I recently bought a Singer Futura CE-200. I was using the embroidery function, but had to stop due to threading problems. When I went back to the computer a few days later my computer was shut down. I am ready to embroider a new project, but my machine keeps telling me to cancel my other embroidery job first. How do I do that?

Wow, I finally get to have a solution.
1. Turn the machine off.
2. Remove the hoop.
3. CAREFULLY slide the bar on the embroidery unit to the left.
4. CAREFULLY slide the piece where the hoop attaches toward you.
5. Turn on the sewing machine. The machine should take the unit to "standby" with a click.
6. Attach the hoop with the power on.
7. Exit the Futura software.
8. Restart the software.
This "should" fix the problem, however, you may have to repeat this process more than once to get it to "stick".

What needles do I need


As above, your machine will work fine with either standard sewing machine needles or embroidery needles from Schmetz, Organ, or Singer, but most experienced users find they use standard sewing machine needles instead of embroidery needles which are much more expensive. The only difference is on embroidery needles the eye is slightly larger.

Now, as to your snapping thread! The needle is not usually the cause of that. Your problem is being caused by too much tension being applied to the thread BEFORE it goes into the thread path, or it can also be caused by aged thread. Even if you purchased it new, it could have been standing on the shelf for a while. Most experienced users don't put the thread on the provided spindle; instead, put it in a mug placed at the back of the machine away from the embroidery hoop, and then thread normally. If you have a CE-200, you will have an auxiliary silver thread holder at the back you can use before the thread enters the normal thread path. Also, try switching the thread (as well as the thread brand) you are using to test if the problem is the thread.

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.

I am trying to embroidery on my futura ce200 and it starts then stops, giving message thread breakage but thread is not broken


I have this problem when the thread isn't locked into position under the clear plastic guide on top of the machine. You have to hear it click 2 times on the right hand side. You have to pull the tread kinda hard. Hope this helps.

Do you still have the embroidery arm attached? If you do, the sewing function of the machine won't work.

Needle breaking-CE 250


I had that same problem and it was due to the thread being too tight. Put the thread net on your thread and it should be ok.
