Unable to wind bobbin on Brother Css-8150 stopped suddenly

I have a 4 year old Brother CS-8150 and I had 1 bobbin completed several hours before and then tried to wind a bobbin after having the machine powered up and sewing for a couple of hours and I could not get the bobbin winder to spin to wind a bobbin. I tried different spools of thread, differnent bobbins and ensureed they were locked on . They are factory Brother bobbins used many times before.
The machine makes a whirring sound, the display says its winding a bobbin but the bobbin shaft is not spinning around to wind it.
PLEASE HELP. Pronotary@cox.net (Sherry)

Checking to see if in fact that the bobbin shaft is turning. Run it without any bobbin on the bobbin shaft. Make sure that it is push over in the correct position and run it. I checked on mine and it does make the whirring sound and the the shaft does spin. Also check underneath the shaft to see if there is any thread wrapped around it. ( I had problems with that in the past). I hope this helps,

Bottom thread from theh bobbin is in big loops.


Problem with Brother CS-8150 Computerized Sewing Machine
bottom thread from theh bobbin is in big loops.

I have a CS-8150 as well -it was fine until I decided to clean the shuttlecock and I thought I had put it back correctly. However, it was after replacing the shuttlecock in place that my bobbin thread was making big loops and no matter what tension it kept doing it. So I removed everything out of the bobbin area. Cleaned and made sure that the shuttlecock was exactly in place as per the manual. Guess what it does not make big loops any more.
Just a suggestion.

My bobbin winder stopped working on my Brother CS-8150. spindle locks in, motor runs, but it seems that the winder is slipping. Can this be adjusted?


I think that I would call Brother at 1-877-276-8437 and ask them if this is a warranty issue. They may have a quick fix for you.

Brother CS-8150 Problems with bobbin thread


Double check to see if the bobbin is in upside down and the thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the wrong direction.

I did this once after several years using the same machine, some days are just not as easy as they should be!

I need to know how to change the bulb on a brother ps 33 sewing machine!


Hi, thank you for using FixYa! I don't see a model PS-33, however; you posted in the CS-8150 machine section, the link to the manual for a CS-8150 machine is attached. It has a section for winding and installing the bobbin and another section for upper threading. If your machine is not the CS-8150, please comment with the correct model number (PS machines start at number 1450 and increment upwards). If this is the correct manual, would you please take minute to rate this solution? Thank you! Gregg

How do I disassemble my Brother CS-8150 to get inside to find a nut that fell in there?


If you or someone you know is mechanically inclined, you will need to take five screws out of the back including a hard to find one under the foot raising lever (lower the foot), then one form the front that is under the thread cartridge, and you will have to remove the bobbin winding plate cover which is held by one small screw, and then remove a small screw from the support bar.

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.

Can't wind the bobbin


Hi again,

Well we finally downloaded a service manual that cost a few bucks, then finished getting the machine apart, then found a small rubber O-ring that had obviously gotten hot when spinning after the tangling of the thread on the bobbin stem. You could see where the heat had melted tiny teeth marks in the ring and it was stretched out of shape. It and yours too will need to be replaced.

Good luck!
