Question about Brother CS-8150 Computerized Sewing Machine
How do I take it apart
The shaft to the bobbin winder may be frozen. Add a couple drops of sewing machine oil then let the oil penetrate for about 5 mins. Get a pair of pliers then carefully and lightly turn the bobbin winder until freely moving. Remove the bobbin case, thread, and needle then let the sewing machine run freely with the bobbin winder engaged for about 15 mins.

I opened up my machine to find that the bobbin winder wheel (little black ring) had totally turned into black sludge in my machine. It is very gooey and hard to remove. I ordered the part from sewingpartsonline.com and replaced the ring. It is still not working..... ugh

If you take it apart, you'll void the remaining warranty. The usual cause is not getting the door open completely and/or thread wrapped around the spindle.

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: Bobbin winder does not spin
Hi. I have a CS-8060 and while I love the machine--the bobbin winder isn't my favorite. Anyway, I have found that the cover to the bobbin winder must be opened completely, also the thread spool must be as far back as possible. Another place I'd check is with a small flashlight just under the small bobbin spool. It can be hard to see under there, so a small flashlight helps. I have gotten thread wound around the pin that goes up to hold the bobbin and if sufficient thread has gotten up in there it could keep the spool from spinning. It's hard to clean out, but careful use of a seam ripper and tweezers does the job.
Good luck and let me know if this works.

Can be dirt or particles that have made it stuck with friction and so a resetting /overhauling with good oiling, degresing will resolve the matter, provided there is wearing off in the drive.
First use a degreasing spray before you can disemble.

SOURCE: Brother CS80 ..... bobbin winder
check the power cord to see if it plugged in to the machine correctly
& if it is then something could be loose or broken inside, it needs to be serviced

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!
