I do have the very same problem! I took my bobbin case out and took a good look at it, turns out right below the plastic hook part, the plastic was cracked off (probably due to thread jamming). Turns out I need a new internal bobbin case, which range in price from $35-$50 from what I researched. I had no luck with local sewing centers on finding the part.
That may (or not) be your issue as well. Good luck, and I hope this your issue is simple fix. A little tune up after might be needed, HAPPY SEWING!! ~Kelly J~

How 2 fix Brother's CS-8060 bobbin auto winder to work?

Replacing the bobbin winder rubber ring.
  • The case halves are held together by 5 larger screws, one under the carry handle, obvious from the holes in the casing, plus one smaller screw up by the foot-raising lever.
  • There is also the final screw, which is a devil to find. You have to remove the plastic tray to which the spool carrier is attached, up by the spool winder. You do not need to remover the spool winder stop but the small screw on the left, in the bottom of the tray-shape.
Next, WITH CARE , lever round the tray with a thin blade and use a small screwdriver to ease it out of the case; there are 2 bits that stick out more than the rest.
  • Once this tray is out you can see a small bar with a screw. Remove this screw and the 2 halves of the case will separate.
TAKE CARE NOT TO DROP THE SCREW INTO THE WORKS!. A piece of sticky-tack on the end of the screwdriver helps here if the screwdriver is not magnetized.
  • Now you can carefully ease the ribbon-strip cable from the circuit board and move the case round to be able to access the screws that hold the circuit board. You do not need to pull out the other cables; just take a tad of care as you work.
The bobbin winder mechanism is held in by 1 screw - take this out and you can then easily replace the rubber drive ring -(which you have providently ordered)
  • Take the opportunity to clear out any fluff and dust while you have the cases apart. Put ONE drop of oil in the center of the bobbin carrier rotating mechanism and one drop on any moving joints.
  • Replace the components/ ribbon cable in the reverse order, taking care not to drop the small screw! It is necessary to carefully line-up the hole into which it fits. It is surprising how easily the tray clips back into place, compared with the hassle you had getting it out.
I took both my CS 8080s apart last week to replace the drive rubbers. The first took nearly 1.5 hours, the next 1 hour as I knew what I was about.

Bobbin winder stop before befor fully wound

Is the bobbin close to full in the middle but not that full above and below? You may need to watch the bobbin wind and give the thread a nudge so that it fills right across the bobbin core to avoid this happening. Most bobbin winders will click off before the bobbin is completely full as you don't want any thread actually touching the bobbin case when it is in position, just fill to about 80% for good tension and stitching.

Bobbin winder does not spin

Hi. I have a CS-8060 and while I love the machine--the bobbin winder isn't my favorite. Anyway, I have found that the cover to the bobbin winder must be opened completely, also the thread spool must be as far back as possible. Another place I'd check is with a small flashlight just under the small bobbin spool. It can be hard to see under there, so a small flashlight helps. I have gotten thread wound around the pin that goes up to hold the bobbin and if sufficient thread has gotten up in there it could keep the spool from spinning. It's hard to clean out, but careful use of a seam ripper and tweezers does the job.

Good luck and let me know if this works.

Brother CS 8060 bobbin wont wind...but motor runs

Firstly check that you have the correct bobbin for your machine, there are many bobbins that will fit in the bobbin case and sew ok, but the hole in the centre is what matters. If you do not have an original try putting the bobbin on the winder spindle with a small piece of paper inside the centre of the bobbin so it is tight on the shaft.
If that does not work it usually means the winder rubber on the bottom of the cover is worn or stuck, this part often looks like a large O Ring.

Cannot wind the bobbin

Check to make sure that the bobbin is locked onto the winder. If is not locked on then nothing will move. I know I had this problem as well and found that the bobbin must be locked on the winder.
