On the hand wheel there is the lock that is used to stop and start the needle from being used. This is necessary for refilling the bobbin with thread. If the hand wheel doesn't make the needle work then you will need to do some minor adjustment.
1. On the hand wheel find a small screw and loosen it until it is just about ready to remove.
2. Now tighten the hand wheel.
3. Tighten the small screw again.
It should be ready to use now.
Easy to do remove sole plate remove shuttle and case, don't forget to pull the spring loaded plate to one side by inserting a electrical screw driver in the slot and twisting it anticlockwise to release the case, remove drive dogs this will the expose the cotton pickup assembly turn the hand wheel anticlockwise until the hook gets close to the needle now watch the needle it should be in the lowest position and just as it starts it's way back up the hook should be just going behind the needle to pick up the tread if this is not the case and it's out of position then hold the hand wheel tight and insert a small screw driver into one of the gaps in the base were the shuttle case fits in away that you are able to move the hook assembly one way or the other with a gentle pressure and move the hook just to make it enter just behind the needle as it only just starts it's way up at this position it is now complete and you can reassemble and run slowly at first just to make sure things are okay.
Go to www.brother-usa.com and under support pick home sewing group, then select your model, cs 100t and download a free manual. It will show you where the screw is located, do not remove the screw, just loosen it.
turn the screw on the needle bar a little until you can pull the needle saftely out
put a new needle back in with the back ( which is the flat side) of the needle facing the back of the sewing machine & tighten the screw back up
I had the same problem with my brother vx-1120 sewing machine. I set the needle to lowest position by using the hand crank. Then I loosened the knerled set screw that holds needle in place. Then I moved needle shaft till the eye of needle is just lower than the hook on the shuttle loop maker. It made my mechine work. There are instuctions for ajusting timing on machine but I think these mechines are built to not fix and throw out. Just because there where no ajustment marks at all on machine, any machanical machine will needed to be ajusted sometime.
