SOURCE: machine quit like it blew a fuse
The 9000 has a safety fuse which blows to protect the circuit board from overloading. It is a simple 3amp fuse available at Radio Shack or automotive store.
If you are mechanically inclined, give it a try. If you are not, take it to a dealer who knows how to repair it.
Remove the top cover by taking the two large screws and the small one under the handle, LHS.
Remove the left side cover. The hidden screw is a 2.5mm allen accessed through the vent.
Lay the machine on its back and remove the four large phillips screws on the bottom and the small screw for the side, paying extreme caution with respect to the embroidery arm.
CAREFULLY move the base unit to the left and out of the way.
Inside the body of the machine you will see a black box held in place by three or torx/slotted screws. Remove the screws and, as you slowly pull the box out MAKE NOTE OF WHICH WIRES PLUG IN WHERE.
One of the wires will not remove.
On the other side of the box, remove the two screws that hold the cover on.
Inside, remove the two screws that hold the board.
Inside you will find two fuses. One will be blown. Replace with new fuse and reassemble.
When refitting the base unit, make sure that the knee lifter is on the correct side of the lever. Also, orient the base so that the accessory bin fits properly.
After securing the base unit with the four large screws, test the knee lifter to make sure that you got it right.
You will then need to recalibrate your clothsetter if you have one.

It sounds like the tension setting is too tight. The tension mechanism consists of two metal disks; the thread runs between these disks. When the pressure foot is down, the disks come together, trapping the thread between them. When the pressure foot is up, the disks separate and the thread can flow freely. (BTW, this is why you adjust the tension with the pressure foot down.)
Take a look at your tension setting and try loosening it. That should resolve the problem.
Let me know if this helps, ok?

First, check to be sure you are threading the machine correctly. This accounts for most problems.
Try using new thread and carefully rethread top and bottom . If that doesn't take care of the problem, then check the bobbin case and hook for scratches, burrs, nicks, etc.
Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,
