SOURCE: Display shows E1

I think I have the solution, it happened to me.

The instructions for bobbin winding tell you to click the start button for the bobbin to wind. When you do that you get that E1 with a beeping. What they don't explain is that in order to press that "UP" arrow button to get the bobbin to wind..........you need to UNPLUG the foot control. So, in other words it to be used for sewing w/o a foot pedal. Now instead of doing as per instructions, assuming you've plugged everything in (foot pedal), after winding is finished just press the foot pedal and your off and running or sewing as the case may be. BTW, look it up in the TROUBLESHOOTING SECTION OF YOUR MANUAL. Hope this helps.

Make sure the bobbin winder is not engaged. If this doesn't help, let me know the model and make.
Good luck!

SOURCE: i can't sew on my machine

I had the same problem.There is a gold or silver washer on the back of the sewing machine that holds the part inside that you are connecting to. If the washer is gone or loose you will not get a connection when you insert the foot peddle. This peice inside is small and square with three delicate wires attached, You should be able to see it

SOURCE: mass bunching of thread in the bobbin compartment

it had nothing to do with the shuttle, it is the upper thread is not in the tensioner. lift the presser foot up and thread the machine even if you have to hold the thread on the top and pull on the bottom to make it go in the tensioner it will help, if a machine loops on the bottom it is the upper tension if it loops on the top it is the lower tension

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.

Ihave anerror E6 and I can no find the problem


Hi! The E6 error means the thread is tangled. I suggest you completely unthread the machine, including the bobbin. clean out any lint or bits of thread in the bobbin area, and carefully rethread.
Hope this helps!

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.

Sewing Machine CS-8060


I do have the very same problem! I took my bobbin case out and took a good look at it, turns out right below the plastic hook part, the plastic was cracked off (probably due to thread jamming). Turns out I need a new internal bobbin case, which range in price from $35-$50 from what I researched. I had no luck with local sewing centers on finding the part.
That may (or not) be your issue as well. Good luck, and I hope this your issue is simple fix. A little tune up after might be needed, HAPPY SEWING!! ~Kelly J~
