Question about Singer Quantum XL-1000 Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Spotty embroidery The "center panel" of the stitching path is loose.  As the machine sews it moves back and forth with a tapping noise and any satin/embdy stitch is not made completely because the needle will not go down into the cloth, especially on the left side. Any suggestions appreciated.  Thanks.

Ensure that the panel is properly fixed to the machine, check that it is not ajust a bad threading problem.

Top tension is too loose. Even adjusted to 0. Was stitching fine embroidery Same pattern.


Not sure but most machines 0 on the tension is the loosest tension. To tighten, move it to a higher number.

The other thing to try is install a brand new needle and remove the top thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the machine from the begining--verify the thread path is correct.

My sewing machine will not make decorative stitches?


Is it an embroidery only machine. Typically embroidery is done with the needle in a fixed position while the hoop is moved around.

Embroidery not working correctly


Well, before I did all that (which may be necessary), I would take a piece of UNWAXED dental floss or hand embroidery floss and floss between the tension disks. You mentioned that you were suddenly breaking threads; there may be lint or loose threads or both seated between the disks, preventing the thread from seating properly. Then,
I would take the embroidery unit off and try to do some sewing with it, to see what results I got. If you can catch and bring the bobbin thread to the top with the top thread, I am doubtful that your timing is off. Sew a line of both straight stitch and zigzag stitches, and see if the stitches are balanced. If not, you may have a bobbin tension issue, and if so, most bobbin cases can be adjusted.

I think you'll find, though, that things will improve considerably when you have cleaned out the upper thread path and tension disks. Make sure when you do that, that your foot is raised, so that the disks are spread. Oh, a drop of sewing machine oil wouldn't hurt either--generally you should put a drop of oil for every 5 hours of embroidery.

Embroidery compontent wont move has computer first starts up


When the embroidery unit is not connected to the machine and you power up the machine it comes up in sewing mode? Holding the embroidery unit in your hand can you move the embroidery arm back and forth and the frame carrier back and forth? Is it very very easy to move or is there resistance? If its easy, probably a belt break. If it is very very hard, take it to a dealer at least for a learned opinion.

Cant embroider on toyota quiltmaster 50


The Quiltmaster 50 can only do free-hand embroidery. Use the darning foot. Set the machine for a satin stitch with a stitch length of 0 and lower the feed dogs. Manually move the hoop to stitch your design. (Trace the design on the fabric and place on a stabilizer if needed. Center the design in an embroidery hoop and move the hoop under the needle. In my limited experience, all fabrics need stabilizers. Some require multiple sheets of stabilizer.)

Personally, I have trouble moving any fabric under the pressure foot. This is mostly a matter of practice. You have to make a lot of scrap piece trials.

This site has the manual for the Quiltmaster 50 (European version): http://www.home-sewing.com/WebRoot/Store/Shops/homesewing/4AAF/95FA/5ED9/1505/56BA/4D44/240A/754B/QUILT50_0020_EFNI_0020__0020_679111-CEA10.pdf . See page 37 (49 of the PDF).

I hope this helps.

(who actually cheats: I either use an embroidery sewing machine or I use a late 1960s Singer Sewing machine with its Monogramming accessory. This has pre-programmed designs on little discs. That's why I don't practice free-hand stitching.)

Trouble sewing lycra fabric using a zig zag stitch


You have the machine set for blind hem stitching. Change the stitch selector to stretch stitch, which is a single, in line stitching zig zag stitch.

You probably do not have lever to put the feed dogs down. That's why you have a cover. To free style embroider or darn you don't need a foot but the presser foot has to be down and as you run the machine, YOU will be doing the stitching by moving your fabric back and forth. This is usually done with a wooden embroidery hoop so that your fabric stays taught. I have done it on jeans without a hoop. Hope this helps.

Fix button won't work in embroidery mode


Just to make sure you know what "Fix" does in Embroidery Mode - you press it before you start your embroidery then when you press Start, the machine will baste a square or rectangle the size of your embroidery before moving back to the centre ready to start the actual embroidery. It is not used to Fix stitches in embroidery mode (like it does in regular sewing mode) and it must be used before the embroidery is begun if you want the basting. Is this problem you have? It will not do the baste stitch?
