Question about Brother CS-6000

I can't sew on my machine

I have a brother cs-6000. I have the foot pedal connected and when I push it I get an E1 error. I unplug the foot pedal and try to use the auto sew button and I get the same error. What's wrong??? I have a manuel but that isn't helping solve my issues!

I had the same problem.There is a gold or silver washer on the back of the sewing machine that holds the part inside that you are connecting to. If the washer is gone or loose you will not get a connection when you insert the foot peddle. This peice inside is small and square with three delicate wires attached, You should be able to see it

E1 flashes on the message window of my brother sewing machine


Brother Computer Codes
  • E1: Make sure the presser foot is lowered before sewing.
    E2: You chose a stitch other than a buttonhole stitch or a bar tack stitch and you tried to sew with the buttonhole lever in the lowered position. Raise the buttonhole lever.
    E3: If you selected the buttonhole or tack bar stitch and start to sew with the buttonhole lever raised, you will get the E3 code. Lower the buttonhole lever.
    E4: You hit the reverse button while the bobbin winder shaft was moved over to the right. Move the bobbin winder shaft to the left.
    E5: On automatic sewing machines, the start/stop button was pressed while the foot controller was plugged in. Unplug the foot controller if you are using the automatic function.
    E6: This code tells you that the motor locked up because the thread is tangled. Untangle the thread, make sure the machine is threaded properly and that the proper tension is set before continuing.

I am getting error message E4 when foot pedal is plugged in. Unplug the foot pedal and the machine goes back to normal with the exception that you really can't sew without the foot pedal.


Your reverse reinforcement stitch button was pushed or needle position was pushed while bobbin winder was moved to the right. You can download a free manual brother-usa.com and you will see all of the troubleshooting and error messages there

What does error E1 mean on a brother CS6000i


hello,the E1 code simply means the machine is working so hard,you can follow the information below to help you fix the problem,

The instructions for bobbin winding tell you to click the start button for the bobbin to wind. When you do that you get that E1 with a beeping. What they don't explain is that in order to press that "UP" arrow button to get the bobbin to wind..........you need to UNPLUG the foot control. So, in other words it to be used for sewing w/o a foot pedal. Now instead of doing as per instructions, assuming you've plugged everything in (foot pedal), after winding is finished just press the foot pedal and your off and running or sewing as the case may be. BTW, look it up in the TROUBLESHOOTING SECTION OF YOUR MANUAL.
please kindly rate the solution if it;s helpful,

take care.

What should I do when error message E1 hapend


An "E1" message appears on the panel. Description: The foot controller was pressed (or the start/stop button was pressed if the foot controller is not connected) and the reverse/reinforcement stitch button was pressed while the presser foot is raised.

Lower the presser foot lever before continuing the operation.

I have a brother ce4000. I am getting an e1 message every time I push the pedal. I have the foot in the down position. I have sewed something heavy and the automatic stop mechanism has been tripped. How do...


Page 62 of the manual does not have any reference to E1 requiring a re-set.

E5 does state to unplug the foot control and use the start-stop button. This might work as a re-set.

My sewing machine is flashing E1 AND I DONT KNOW HOW TO FIX IT Dottie


Error code E1:Make sure the presser foot is lowered before sewing.

In order to get this error the foot controller has to be pressed (or the start/stop button was pressed if the foot controller is not connected), and the reverse/reinforcement stitch button needs to be pressed while the presser foot was raised.

The only solution offer by Brother is to lower the presser foot lever before continuing.

This seems a bit simplistic so assuming you tried that already
Check to make sure there is no tangled thread interfering with the take-up lever.

This seems to be a common problem and it may be related to a computer issue rather then a mechanical fault.

In this case you may need to have the machine serviced.
I hope something here helps. I will investigate more and if I discover anything else I will pass it on.

you may need to have the machine serviced.

Brother CS-6000 E1 error message - my presser foot is not up!


Did you take this machine apart? If so, then the lever that extends from the thread tension wheel is to the right of the raised presser foot switch plate (inside the sewing machine), keeping the switch from being unpressed.

Take the machine apart again, raise the presser foot, and put the machine back together. This will ensure proper alignment of the plates.

With the foot pedal disconnected from the machine, push the button with the - and upward arrow. to stop sewing use the same button. It is the first button closest to the needle.
