Needle thread getting caught in bobbin are on Brother Cs-100

Help me please.... my needle thread is getting stuck on some spring on the outer part of the bobbin case. I cannot find whether this spring is in the appropriate position since there is no picture in the manual or anywhere online. The needle thread is entering the bobbin area, getting stuck on the spring, and causing it to bunch inside and knot.

Any ideas??

    Mine did the same thing!! It (spring-thing) finally broke off completely and now the machine won't sew anything at all. I have only used the machine a few times and I absolutely love it. Now I cannot use it at all and I won't accept the fact that I spent all that money for a new machine and must watch it just collect dust in my crafting room. If you receive any info on this problem, please post it here....I will do the same. Sorry I was of no assistance to you.

I don't know if this is any help, but I would suggest taking it in to a repair store. So here is a way to find places that repair brothers machines. The place near me has done a great job both times I've gone in. Also they usually don't charge for labor, just parts. If they charge for labor it probably won't be much.

Thread breaking, not even threaded in needle anymore, thread gets caught on spool sometimes


Upper thread breaks
1.the needle may be bent or damaged--try rolling the needle on a flat surface to see if it's bent or not
Or the needle could be in backwards
Correct needle insertion
Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of sewing machine.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle, place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side to the back of the machine or if using a round needle--the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft.
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
2.upper tension may be to tight--try 3 to 5
3.thread may be hanging up in bobbin case--check area for loose threads or lint
???
Lower thread breaks
The most probable cause of lower thread breaking is improperly wound bobbin
1.always start with a empty bobbin
Never wind one color over the other
2.choose thread that is identical in color & type as the one to be used for upper threading
3.wind the bobbin evenly across & in layers
4.don't wind the bobbin so full that it would be tight & hard to insert into bobbin case
5.bent bobbin--replace
6.lint built up in the bobbin case--frequent cleanings will eliminate this problem, the more often you use the sewing machine the more often it needs to be cleaned
7.thread catching on the bobbin spring or latch on bobbin case, check to see that the bobbin is inserted completely & correctly, & that you are using the right kind of bobbin

for the top & bobbin thread keep thread tails of 3 to 6 inches long pulled behind the needle before you start sewing

yes,sometimes the thread will get caught on the spool, you might think about getting a extra holder that sets behind the machine to hold those spool's that the thread get caught on, that's what I did.

My brother sewing machine keeps un-threading. I have checked the bobbin and took the thread all the way out and re-threaded it. What else can I do?


Make sure you are using the right needle for the application. Also check that your needle isn't damaged, bent or put in backwards. Sometimes a needle will have a burr on the eye, just sharp enough to break the thread. So always buy quality needles. Check your tension too.

There has to be a problem in your threading or your needle. You may have the needle inserted backwards, flat side has to face rear or the needle is bent. Totally unthread your machine and make sure that there are no tangles and that it feeding the right way. Watch how they show your for threading and winding the bobbin, plus threading the bobbin. Good luck, but I truly think it is in your threading.

Needle thread keeps getting caught in bobbin


Hi! First, make sure you have the needle in correctly. I know this may sound silly, but there's a flat side on the needle shank and that flat side has to go in a certain way, facing right or left, or to the back of the machine. Many new machines have the flat part of the needle facing back, but you need to check the manual to make sure that's correct for your machine. Unless the flat part of the needle is in correctly, the grooves in the needle don't work properly and you can have problems like what you're experiencing.

Let me know if this works, ok?

Happy Sewing!

Needle is getting stuck on the bobbin case


That usually means there is a problem with the threading. If the thread is pulled through the wrong side of the needle, is wrapped around the top wheels wrong, or the bobbin is threaded wrong, this will usually cause it to jam up by the bobbin. i would suggest re-threading your machine, or if that doesn't work, contacting the problem hotline.

My needle on my brother CS-100 sewing machine keeps getting stuck on the bobbin case. I think it may need to be retimed but do not know how to do this.


before you do that, make sure that the machine is threaded correctly. often when the needle is threaded from the wrong side, the thread is wrapped around the top wheels incorrectly, or the bobbin is not threaded right, it will cause the needle to get jammed in the bobbin. however, if this does not work, check their hotline and ask the maker what you should do. you can also go to a local sewing machine store and have them take a look at it.

Bottom tread keeps jamming and getting all knoted up. The display gives me an E6 error code. what can i do


try re-threading your machine. usually when the machine is jammed at the bobbin or when the needle gets stuck to the bobbin thread, it means that there is an error with the thread. make sure that the thread isn't pulled through the wrong side of the needle, wrapped the wrong way around the wheels on the top, and that the bobbin is threaded correctly. if this doesn't work, you may want to contact their hotline.

Thread getting caught in bobbin area


If you are seeing the needle thread in loops and birdnests then its the needle thread you need to check. The main reason is it is not threaded through the takeup spring(the one that moves) This action is critical as it is how the thread is pulled up tight. Also make sure the needle thread is between the discs and that it has sufficient tension that you do not see it on the bottom of the material. Try this: Use two different color threads for needle and bobbin. If you see the needle color on the bottom then the needle thread is not tight enough (or in 5% of the cases the bobbin is too tight or hung up). Let me know how it does. Jay
