Brother CS6000i - Needle breaking, bobbin thread not picking up

I am having the same problem.. It worked fine last week, then randomly yesterday it broke the needle when I tried to use it. Went through 4 needles before giving up. I also have tried to clean it out, but nothing works. It is not even picking up the bobbin thread at all. Any solutions?

There are a few possible causes, firstly make sure you have the correct needle and it is in the correct way and make sure when you fit the needle it is pusshed all the way up into the needle holder. If the shuttle or hook is moving around the bobbin case then the timing may have been knocked out. If the it is not moving it means either the gear or belt that drives the hoo / shuttle has been damaged or broken.

Needle not picking up bobbin thread and it makes funny loud noise


Sometimes both symptoms are a result of a bent, dull, or damaged needle. Try installing a brand new needle.

If it is still not picking up the bobbin thread and making a noise, take it for service. It most likely has a needle/hook timing issue and the noise could be the needle making contact with the needleplate or in the bobbin area. Continued use could cause the needle to break and flying pieces of needle, in most cases, are not a good thing.

The motor locked up because the thread is tangled. 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.

I've been sewing for awhile and randomly my bobbin started tangling - I've tried all the usual things (actually read the manual and everything ;-) and cannot get it to work properly. Any suggestions.


try changing the needle-just incase it may have bent or be blunt or have a burr
take the bobbin out of the bobbin case & put it back in again
check the thread take up lever to see if it's threaded- when the thread comes off it can cause the machine to jam in the bobbin area

Brother CS-6000i - the bobbin thread is not coming through in order to make a stitch. I have cleaned the bobbing case, changed needles, re-threaded machine, changed thread, and even changed bobbins. It was...


Check list:

1 - Flat side of the needle is facing the back of the machine.

2 - Threaded machine with the presser foot up - always.

3 - Bobbin thread is feeding from the spool in the correct direction and through the proper guides.

Lower and raise the threaded needle, holding onto the end of the thread.

If this does not pull the bobbin thread up, the timing may need adjusting.

There is a graphic for doing this as sewusa.com or take it into the dealer for service.

Brother sewing machine cs6000i. Less than one year. The upper thread wraps around the bobbin caseing and jams.


check you tension on the top thread and see if you have it threaded the right way. Also see if the indent of your needle "the indent down by the hole on the needle" is facing the hook by your bobbin case that grabs the thread when it comes around.
