This annoys the heck out of me, cause it happens a lot more than it should. There can be some valid reasons as to why it happens, though.

Your top thread could be broken or about to break; your bobbin thread could be broken, about to break or empty/about to become empty and is loose around the bobbin; you could have a birds' nest (a mass of thread just under the fabric/presser foot and/or within the feed dog and bobbin) forming and causing a jam; or it could be your Futura having a little bit of a hissy fit. Obviously, if you've checked for broken thread you need to move on. Check for a birds' nest by removing the fabric and clip your threads. If you find one, clear it, rethread your bobbin and begin sewing again. If there's no birds' nest, then place the fabric back in and try sewing/embroidering again. If the machine acts up again, I recommend removing the fabric/hoop, rethreading your top and bobbin threads, replacing fabric/hoop and resuming where you left off. If the machine still gives you trouble, try hitting the start button for a couple of times and seeing if the problem doesn't simply resolve itself. When you're embroidering areas that have a few small, short stitches only, the machine seems to act up a little and then behaves fine once you bypass the area. Be sure to take all of the other steps first, though, because a birds' nest will RUIN a beautiful seam or embroidery.

My futura ce-100 keeps beebing and it lights up. it stops working and will not move on. how do i fix this.


Check the threading, especially in the clear plastic tension race at the top back of the machine. This is the part where the machine checks the thread is moving. If the thread breaks, or is not running correctly through that area, the machine thinks the thread is broken/run out and stops.

The computer keeps indicating that the machine has paused


Something similar happend to me and what fixed it was turning the dial toward me to raise the needle. After that I pressed start and it worked. This machine is finicky sometimes. I have to hold my thread tight at the beginning of embroidery or it says my thread is broken. I hope you can find the answer if this does not help.

I have a Singer Futura CE-150 and it keeps stopping due to "Thread break error" but the thread and bobbin seem okay what could it be?


Either upper thread is not passing through thread sensor area or sensor is broken.
Second possible reason is that if design is not optimized the sporadic speed change provides thread breakage error even if the thread is not broken physically. Make sure your software is updated to optimize it automatically (Futura main menu->Help->Live Update).

Top thread will not pick up bobbin thread makes a big loopy mess


This is sometimes caused by the upper thread not threaded correctly. You need to thread it first with the pressure foot in the up position. You need to "floss" the thread into the clear plastic guide as this is where the tension is. The tension should be set to E for embroidering. Also make sure you get the bobbin thread in the slot on the bobbin case. Also, lower your pressure foot before you begin embroidering. Hope this helps!

Hi, I'm trying to embroider using my Singer Futura CE-100. After it starts to embroider, it will either bunch up bobbin side or the machine will beep, and the computer says to turn it off, remove hoop,...


could be a threading problem. on the top of the machine, where you go under the plate, pull the thread back and forth like you are flossing. you should feel the thread snap around the 2 wheels, then continue threading. hope it helps

reduce the upper tension until the thread doesn't show on top anymore. This will probably solve both problems.The problem you describe is mechanical not computer related.

Can't seem to embroider


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

Singer futura ce-100 embroidery machine


Under the embroidery attachement (on the front side) is a lever to engage or disengage the "feed dog control." When embroidering, you need to move the lever to the level to disengage. The feed dog control should only be at the righe side position, or raised when you are not using the embroidery attatchment.
