BROTHER CS 8150 Shuttle Problem

I can't reinstall the shuttle correctly. When I start up the machine it yanks on the fabric as it's feeding through. Is there a special way to reinstall the shuttle? I can't figure it out from the manual.

its the problem of the timing belt in your machine its extra loosen or extra tightned or is slightly came out of its position or finally broken.
as the machine is proper just missing the proper speed as it should be .
it is running continuosly as you stated.
check the timing belt and make it proper if its worn out and needs replacement this is how its done

There is an adjusting screw on the right side of the machine head. Follow the motor bracket to the machine head and loosen that big old screw or bolt which will raise or lower the motor giving you slack to remove or replace the belt.

feel free for further queries

If you or someone you know is mechanically inclined, you will need to take five screws out of the back including a hard to find one under the foot raising lever (lower the foot), then one form the front that is under the thread cartridge, and you will have to remove the bobbin winding plate cover which is held by one small screw, and then remove a small screw from the support bar.

Look at the feed dogs under the foot see if they are raised high enough to pull the material through.

Oil might help but it sounds like you don't have enough pressure on the foot. You can take the casing off where the light is and there is a screw back there that controls the tension on the pressure foot. It is not meant to be changed by anyone but a professional. I've changed the tension but it wasn't easy. If you are still interested let me know and I will try to explain.

My needle thread wrap around shuttle hook how do I repair this? on my Brothers CS 8060

Upper thread looping around the shuttle is typically caused by improper threading through the upper tension disks and takeup lever. Check the instruction manual, carefully rethread the top of your machine and make sure the presser foot is in the down position. If the problem continues it may indicate an issue with tension disks. Remove the upper thread, fold a clean piece of fabric and with the presser foot raised to open the tension disks, place the fabric it in the thread path, through the upper tension disks. Lower the presser foot and draw the fabric back and forth to clean any build up of grime and wax from the disks. Lift the presser foot, remove the fabric, rethread and try again.

If the problem persists, you should not need any tools to remove the shuttle to inspect it - sometimes it is necessary to remove the needle plate to lift it out. Check the edges and underside of the plastic shuttle for marks caused by needle strikes - these can catch the thread causing the issue you describe. If there are marks, you may be able to polish them out with fine (600 grit or higher) wet and dry paper. I generally replace them. Also check the tip of the hook for marks - you can often feel these with your fingernail. If they are present, you may need to get a mechanic to polish them out.

Bobbin shuttle doesn't move

Look in your book.

- There is a bobbin (clear plastic) it rotates.
- The bobbin fits into the bobbin case (black), it does not rotate.
- The bobbin case is nested into the shuttle which does rotate.

There is no bobbin shuttle.

I need to know how to change the bulb on a brother ps 33 sewing machine!

Hi, thank you for using FixYa! I don't see a model PS-33, however; you posted in the CS-8150 machine section, the link to the manual for a CS-8150 machine is attached. It has a section for winding and installing the bobbin and another section for upper threading. If your machine is not the CS-8150, please comment with the correct model number (PS machines start at number 1450 and increment upwards). If this is the correct manual, would you please take minute to rate this solution? Thank you! Gregg

Lower thread tangles and machine then locks up

I have the same problem. When I take it to my shop, they keep telling me there is a special order for reinstalling the shuttle case and plates on top but I get home and can't duplicate what they've told me. If you figure this one out, please let me know.
