```I'm afraid I can't reproduce the problem you allude to. I give a simple
example:

In[1]:=
Fn[x_, y_] := Module[{formulae},
formulae = k + x^2 + y^2 - 1; solution =
Solve[formulae == 0, k]; solution[[1]]]
In[2]:=
y = 7; Do[Print[Table[Fn[x, y], {x, 1, 3, 0.5}]], {i, 4}]
{{k -> -49}, {k -> -50.25}, {k -> -52.}, {k -> -54.25},
{k -> -57.}}
{{k -> -49}, {k -> -50.25}, {k -> -52.}, {k -> -54.25},
{k -> -57.}}
{{k -> -49}, {k -> -50.25}, {k -> -52.}, {k -> -54.25},
{k -> -57.}}
{{k -> -49}, {k -> -50.25}, {k -> -52.}, {k -> -54.25},
{k -> -57.}}

It seems to work as it should.
