Question about Sewing Machines
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

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,

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.

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.
