Question about Brother CS-8150 Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Machine makes a loud noise and will not make stitches.

I have a Brother CS-8150 that has only been used a few short months. My daughter accidentally knocked it over on the floor and ever since then it will not work properly. If I try to sew a few stitches there is a loud grinding noise and the bottom stitches are not picked up. Today I took it apart because I got the "safety mechanism is engaged" when I pushed the needle position button a few too many times. The machine will move the needle, but I can hear the grinding coming from the wheel on the side. Could it have been a belt that was knocked out of place? I have checked for burs, stuck thread and everything. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

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.

Hi
Manuals for Brother machines are usually available from the Brother site.
http://www.brother-usa.com/manuals/default.aspx?PGID=3
They have one for the CS-8150 but I'm not sure if this is your machine or if the model number is UL273C.
The manual for the CS-8150 is here:
http://www.brother-usa.com/ModelDocuments/Consumer/Users%20Manual/UM_CS_8150_EN_183.PDF
The manual for ULT2001 is here:
http://www.brother-usa.com/ModelDocuments/Consumer/Users%20Manual/UM_ULT_2001_EN_200.PDF
Maybe one of them is similar enough to your machine.
Hope this helps!

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

Brother Super Galaxie 2100 Buttonhole lever not working


I have a problem with my CS 8150 which sometimes tells me to lower the pressure foot even though I had already did it. What clears the problem for me is that I eject the thread cassette and re-install and I can go ahead and sew. Try that to see if it will quit telling you to pull down the lever.

Brother Sewing Machine model:CS8150 bobbin thread problems


The top of the machine is not threaded correctly. First raise the presserfot then rethread the machine. Bottom looping is usually caused by a lack of top tension. There could allso be a bur on the hook.
