Balance wheel locked on crafter's choice

I have an error E6 that states the motor is locked up because the thread is tangled. I have removed the spool and re-threaded the machine and cleaned the shuttle and the message still shows. The balance wheel won't move. How do I fix this?

Babylock.com has really good cust. service, but your dealer should know what steps to take to clear this code.
If the sell an addtional information book on your machine, and stitching BUY it, it was so worth my $70 for my Evolve book (200+pages of HOW to's for that 8 thread monster!)

I hope this helped

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.

The motor locked up because the thread is tangled.
Solution:
Remove the tangled thread before continuing the operation.
Clean the bobbin case to remove the tangled thread.
After cleaning the bobbin case, insert the bobbin case properly.
If the needle is bent or broken, replace the needle.
Then, thread the upper thread properly, and continue the operation.

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?

Machine is telling me E6 error but there is no thread tangled


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 ?
