My niece has this machine, was recently helping her sew with it -- I go the E6 code also - I believe it is the button lever is down - it is the white/beige 'flag' arm beside the presser foot - it needs to be raised back up to the case housing to clear the error - it means you do not have the proper stitches for the foot. Good Luck.

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.

E6 is an error code. You didn't state the model number, but if you look in your instruction manual, it will list the error codes. If you don't have a manual, go to Brother.com and you can get the answer.

Error message e6. Needle won't move


Check your owner's manual - troubleshooting section. Sometimes it will show the error codes. Otherwise, search the internet for:

Make + Model + "error code E6"

You can also check with the manufacturer.

I am getting an "E6" on my motor when I turn it on. Do not know what that means and I do not hear the motor running.


Hi Nancie
have a good day to you
can you please tell me what kind of control model ? any way E6 coming with control model ( SC-1 / SC-380 / SC-2 ) it means:
-Check the control panel cord for
disconnection. (Check whether
the panel cord comes in contact
with the V belt.)
-Check whether the control panel
connectorhas loosened, (Check
whether the control panel connector
has been securely connected
to the machine.)
best regards

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.

I keep getting the E6 (tangled thread) message on my Brother CS600 when I try to sew. I have check for tangled thread and cannot find any. Could it be that the bobbin case needs to be replaced? It seems...


is the bobbin case damaged in any way?
try turning off the machine & unplugging it & then replug it back up & turn it on & see if that clears the computer parts of the machine
if it still shows a E6, then you can replace the bobbin case or you might even consider having it serviced

I had sewing machines E6 computer bother a few yeas . Now I sewing , it turn E6 . what does E6 mean? Can you help me . How to fix it? Thank you.


Download a free manual from www.brother-usa.com and under support and put in your model number. E6, means that the thread is tangled, totally unthread it, now with the presser foot up, rethread, pull the top thread, now lower the presser foot and pull the thread, it should barely move. This will seat the thread in the tension discs. Read your manual before using, it will save you lots of grief. People love to skip this step, and wonder why the machine is not working right. This is one time you should take the time, it is worth it.

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?
