    I have this same problem. I keep getting the "E6" message but there is no thread tangle. It will sew perfectly fine for a second then it will lock up and say there is an error. I have no idea what to do.

I am in the middle of fixing this same error. I phoned Brother service in Manchester and they are spot on. Give them a try, they talk you through the problem and suggest things to do to narrow down the cause. Make sure you have the model and serial number as this saves time. In extreem cases you can send your machine to them by parcel post and they will look at it free of charge and then give you an estimate for any repairs needed. If you decide not to go ahead, you can elect to have the machine returned to you for the cost of the postage.
In my case I bought the machine second hand off of E-bay and was getting the dreaded tangle/needle message. I phoned the service department and I was told to thread the machine up and switch on. Then they give you several things to try. Essentially you need to get someone to press the start button while you immediately turn the handwheel forward gently and smoothly.
If this stops the message coming up then you must suspect the motor or its fuse. In my case, it would seem the machine had been dropped as there was a hairline crack in the circuit board which stopped the power getting to the motor.

If your thread is not tangled .The E6 will come up also if the top thread is not threaded properly. Is your thread breaking at all ?

The same problem with mine. It's almost new, but begun to show this error. And there is no thread inside. It seems to be a software error.

I keep getting the e6 error message for tangled thread but when i go to fix the tangle there isnt one and both bobin and spool spin freely any help would be great im at a total loss


The "thread out" sensor can be triggered if the thread is not between the tension disks. That is usually caused because you threaded with the presser foot DOWN. You MUST raise the presser foot when you thread your machine; that is the only time that the tension disks are spread to accept thread.

After 3-4 stitches, machine shuts down. On display panel E6 show up.


Error codes are on page 62 of this manual.
It says " The motor locked up because the thread is tangled.
Remove the tangled thread before continuing operetion."
I would guess that this could happen for anything that would cause too much load on the motor.

Showing E6


You receive the error message E6 when the motor locked up because thread is tangled or the machine is seizing up.

Remove the tangled thread, it it still happens that means your machine is seizing and requires service.

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?

What kind of thread are you trying to use? Is it a decent fresh thread? If, it is old, throw it out and buy some fresh quality thread. Usually, cheap thread is the problem.

I keep getting an E6 error message - tangled thread. I think it's the bobbin thread that's getting tangled, and I can't figure out why, or how to fix it. Any ideas?


It could be that the bobbin is being put in upside down check to make sure that you do not need a bobbin with a magnet on one side. also make sure there is no thread tangled inside the bobbin housing it will cause the timing of the machine to be off and cause issues with your needle picking up the bobbin and thus cause a mess inside you bobbin housing

Ihave anerror E6 and I can no find the problem


Hi! The E6 error means the thread is tangled. I suggest you completely unthread the machine, including the bobbin. clean out any lint or bits of thread in the bobbin area, and carefully rethread.
Hope this helps!
