Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I have a brother ES-2000 sewing machine. My bobbin winder stopped working due to disintegrated bobbin winder tire. I just replaced the tire. When I try to wind a bobbin, it spins for a few seconds and stops with the error message "E6" which means that the motor is locked up. There is no tangled thread, or dust inside and outside. The machine is clean. I don't know what to do. Do I need to have it repaired? Please help!

You may need to take it in for repair. Try spinning your winder spindle. It is possible the spindle has seized and the motor is trying to work to hard to spin it. If it is seized you could try some natural lubricator or WD But you would need to make sure you don't spray any on any other parts other then the metal spindle itself....Hope this helps

SOURCE: Unable to wind bobbin on Brother Css-8150 stopped suddenly

Checking to see if in fact that the bobbin shaft is turning. Run it without any bobbin on the bobbin shaft. Make sure that it is push over in the correct position and run it. I checked on mine and it does make the whirring sound and the the shaft does spin. Also check underneath the shaft to see if there is any thread wrapped around it. ( I had problems with that in the past). I hope this helps,

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.

SOURCE: Very inexperienced sewer! How do I thread it?

The way I solved this problem was to take a break! When I resumed I was more patient and found that I wasn't doing the bobbin right. I took my time and got it right this time....hooray!

Hi. It's very likely that the needle is inserted wrong. Take the needle out and make sure that the flat shank of the needle is facing away from you (to the rear of the machine).

Try this and let me know if it helps, ok?

The "E6" message means that the motor locked up because the thread is tangled.
The solution is to remove the tangled thread before continuing the operation. Clean the bobbin case to remove the tangled thread. After cleaning the bobbin case, insert the bobbin case properly. If the needle is bent or broken, replace the needle. Then, thread the upper thread properly, and continue the operation.

Bobbin winder doesnt work


The bobbin winder tires on most of the new lower to medium end brother machines have a tendency to sort of melt. I honestly don't know what causes it, but basically the rubber ring that rides the handwheel and causes the bobbin winder to turn will liquify and drip off the bobbin winder and then re-solidify. It would be best to take your machine to a repair shop, to get the tire replaced and to have the old tire sludge cleaned out, though if you are adventurous, you could try it yourself. You can order a tire at the link I've provided, but most sewing machine repair shops can get you one as well.

Getting the cover off my brother cs 80. all screws have been removed and the cover comes off partially. I seems to be stuck at the turn wheel, like something is holding it fixed.


I had the same problem when opening my machine. The problem is a screw underneath the bobbin winder area. Pull the bobbin base off and then gently pull up the bobbin winder assembly from under the front cover. You will see a screw in the corner to remove so that you can complete the task. I had to purchase a service manual and then I had great success with replacing the bobbin winder "tire" (Bobbin Winder Tire, Babylock, Brother #X55238051 at sewingpartsonline.com - $3.99!!)

Bobbin winder belt melted


Mine stopped working too. Gave up and wound bobbins by hand for a while until I broke down and took the machine apart -- an ordeal to figure out. I found that a pliable ring on the winder was completely disintegrated (gummy plastic-like stuff). An online search found this -- a bobbin "tire" which I THINK is the part I need: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/bobbin-winder-tire-brother-x55238051.aspx. Hope this helps. --Also cleaned all the lint out when I had the machine opened up. They don't make it EASY!

Cannot wind the bobbin


Check to make sure that the bobbin is locked onto the winder. If is not locked on then nothing will move. I know I had this problem as well and found that the bobbin must be locked on the winder.
