You may have a bent bar inside the machine (big trouble), needle error is easy it is just to wind the big nob at the back of the machine, make sure you are on the correct needle when you move it, on mine it is a little stiff, just do it slowly. The engineer just bent my bar back into shape, that was 1yrs ago. Good luck have fun :-)

    Please help me with solution asap.

From the Brother web site I find, " If you are receiving a "Main motor current" error message indicates there is a problem with the unit, and it is recommended that you get the machine serviced.

Brother galaxie 3000. error msg saying thread tangled/needle broken? its neither, and the machine will not work until it's cleared. help!!

This is an error generated by an overcurrent on the motor. does the machine turn freely with the power off? My guess is that the upper main shaft bushing has seized. If so you are in for a big job remove shaft and bushings, work bushings free and then reinstall.

Main motor lock, inappropriate needle position, after broken needle

The broken needle may be lodged in the bobbin housing. If you cannot locate, take it in for professional servicing. You may have put the timing out of whack.

E6. Motor locked up because the thread is tangled. I have re-threaded machine and bobbin; thread still tangles after 2 or 3 stitches. HELP!

In my Brother CE-4000, it appears as though the feed dogs (which you can change to a higher position or a lower position) are allowing the bobbin case to spin all the way around and then the needle hits the bobbin case. When the feed dogs are in the lowest position, the bobbin case does not spin all the way around when the needle moves up and down (and therefore the needle does not get stuck in the bobbin case. I am wondering if this is a problem with the feed dogs/case?
