Replacing the bobbin winder rubber ring.

  • The case halves are held together by 5 larger screws, one under the carry handle, obvious from the holes in the casing, plus one smaller screw up by the foot-raising lever.
  • There is also the final screw, which is a devil to find. (see 3rd image)You have to remove the plastic tray to which the spool carrier is attached, up by the spool winder. You do not need to remover the spool winder stop but the small screw on the left, in the bottom of the tray-shape.
Next, WITH CARE , lever round the tray with a thin blade and use a small screwdriver to ease it out of the case; there are 2 bits that stick out more than the rest.
  • Once this tray is out you can see a small bar with a screw. (see 2nd image)Remove this screw and the 2 halves of the case will separate.
TAKE CARE NOT TO DROP THE SCREW INTO THE WORKS!. A piece of sticky-tack on the end of the screwdriver helps here if the screwdriver is not magnetized.
  • Now you can carefully ease the ribbon-strip cable from the circuit board and move the case round to be able to access the screws that hold the circuit board. You do not need to pull out the other cables; just take a tad of care as you work.
The bobbin winder mechanism is held in by 1 screw - take this out and you can then easily replace the rubber drive ring -(which you have providently ordered)
  • Take the opportunity to clear out any fluff and dust while you have the cases apart. Put ONE drop of oil in the center of the bobbin carrier rotating mechanism and one drop on any moving joints.
  • Replace the components/ ribbon cable in the reverse order, taking care not to drop the small screw! It is necessary to carefully line-up the hole into which it fits. It is surprising how easily the tray clips back into place, compared with the hassle you had getting it out.
I took both my CS 8080 apart last week to replace the drive rubber. It took nearly 1.5 hours along with the cleaning and lubing.
I am sorry the 3rd image is so small. It shows the screw to remove to access the arrowed screw in the second image

The bobbin winder ring, (the rubber ring which drives the bobbin winder within the machine) on many of the lower end brother sewing machines have a tendency to melt/liquify. It's a very strange condition but is very common. If this has happened, it would be best to take your machine to a sewing machine repair shop to have the former bobbin winder ring cleaned out and replaced. If this is not the case, it is likely that your ring has become worn and is no longer making contact with the drive wheel, and should be replaced. I would not recommend taking this specific model apart to replace the ring yourself. It is not terribly difficult to take apart, but it can be very difficult to put it all back together properly, and this machine is particularly fragile, and could easily be damaged if you don't have a fair amount of experience with sewing machine repair.

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: Can't wind the bobbin

Hi again,

Well we finally downloaded a service manual that cost a few bucks, then finished getting the machine apart, then found a small rubber O-ring that had obviously gotten hot when spinning after the tangling of the thread on the bobbin stem. You could see where the heat had melted tiny teeth marks in the ring and it was stretched out of shape. It and yours too will need to be replaced.

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.

Good luck!

Bobbin will not wind


For ~$25 you can purchase a stand-alone bobbin winder from the local fabric store (JoAnn's, Hancocks) or the internet, ie Amazon.com.

How do I get the bobbin thread to wind?


Are you holding onto the end of the thread while it starts to wind? You must provide tension on the starting thread by inserting the end of. The thread up through a hole in the bobbin and hold onto the end to start the winding.

My Brother CS-8060/CS-80 is making a high pitched squeaking noise when I try to thread a bobbin. My manual has nothing about that kind of problem. I think it might be something to do with the belt or maybe...


Hi! The first thing I'd do is look for thread caught on the bobbin winding spindle, but below the little platform where the bobbin sits. It's really hard to get at, but if you shine a light from the side, you should be able to bend your head (or tilt the machine back) so that you can see the underside of that platform. When I've gotten thread caught on that spindle, I take my scaple or a craft knife and carefully cut the thread free, then use a set of tweezers to pull it out. You're working in a very cramped area, so be patient and go slowly.

Make sure the lid that uncovers the bobbin winding mechanism is as far back as it will go; the same goes for the spool that holds the thread.

Sometimes I get a a high-pitched squeaking noise (but it's not loud) just sewing. It comes from the handwheel and I don't know why my machine does it. It stops if I push the handwheel in (although the handwheel doesn't seem to be out.)

See if these suggestions help--if not, let me know, and we can try something else.

Happy Sewing!

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.
