Question about Brother Sewing Machines

1 Answer

How do you clean brother SQ9050

When i'm sewing, and I go into reverse, the needle stalls. I get an error messaage E6. After a few seconds, I'm able to start again, however it sometimes continues to stall if I need to go in reverse. I don't know why it does this. And troubleshooting Error Message E6 in the manual isn't any help.

Try changing the needle
try rethreading the machine top and bobbin
make sure to use every thread guide this is important for the tension
try using a different bobbin
clean under the needle plate and in the bobbin area for lint
also possible that the machine may need some type of adjustment
or the machine could be starting to have a timing problem

actually e2 is the button hole lever being down. e6 means that the thread is tangled and to prevent the motor from overheating the machine automatically stops. All you have to do is re-thread the machine and take the bobbin out, untangle it and put it back in and sew. This usually works. If it keeps happening, there could be a few things wrong.

1. if you are using thick fabric your tension should be lower. normal tension is 5.

2. your machine is out of alignment. take it in to a service center, they can fix it in 5 minutes. to find a service center near you go to http://www.brother-usa.com/service/

3. your needle is old or bent and should be replaced.

4. Your needle is too thick, standard is 80. The thicker the fabric, the thicker the needle.

I fought with this machine so much, then felt like a fool. It wasn't threaded properly, and I needed to re-set the tension.
Thanks for being there - if only to vent......

SOURCE: machine is telling me E6 error but there is no thread tangled

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.

My SQ9050 Brother machine will not pull the bonnin thread up.


Try re-threading the bobbin you may have it in there backwards. If that doesn't work re-thread your needle thread and play with your tension.

Needle Position Sensor is disconnected
This sensor detects the drive timing for the pulse motor for
zigzagging and feed, the vertical stop position for the needle. It
detects the upper shaft angle of rotation using a shutter attached
to the upper shaft and an optical sensor.

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?

My brother CE 4000 sewing machine freezes. After some tinkering I can sew a little then in happens again. It makes a shuddering noise then freezes and shows an E6 error message?


Turn off the power and remove the needle and presser foot.

Remove the needle plate, bobbin and bobbin case.

Clean the shuttle and surrounding area.

Replace everything.

Make sure the flat side of the needle faces to the back of the machine.

Raise the presser foot and re-thread the machine.
