Question about Brother Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Brother CS-8150 Bobbin winder not working properly - at first it slowed and would not turn hardly at all. Then my husband cleaned it and now when I put everything in the correct position, it will not turn at when when I press the foot, however, when I press the reverse button on the machine, it takes off, runs a seconfd or two then beeps like mad and stops. If I press the button again, it winds some more, then beeps like mad again. The beep is not one of the error beeps identified in the manual. I'm at a loss. I manage to get bobbins wound, but it is extremely annoying to do it this way. everything else works fine!

If it was oiled when it was cleaned there may be too much oil. You can blot it with a tissue and put it back together and try it again

SOURCE: 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.

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!

SOURCE: Bobbin winder will not turn..

Without knowing what type of machine you have its hard to determine if the problem is mechanical or electronic. If the bobbinwinder has its own motor than its probably electronic and it could be a bad motor or circuitboard. Sounds like this could be it.
The minimum service charge could be about 50.00 but this won't include the more expensive part. You might look up Sidewinder bobbinwinders which is a small separate unit you can purchase in most fabric stores or online for about 20.00 and just wind bobbins separate from the machine.
Good luck.

SOURCE: My bobbin winder stopped working on my Brother

I think that I would call Brother at 1-877-276-8437 and ask them if this is a warranty issue. They may have a quick fix for you.

Bobbin winder shaft wont spin


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.

Bottom thread from theh bobbin is in big loops.


Problem with Brother CS-8150 Computerized Sewing Machine
bottom thread from theh bobbin is in big loops.

I have a CS-8150 as well -it was fine until I decided to clean the shuttlecock and I thought I had put it back correctly. However, it was after replacing the shuttlecock in place that my bobbin thread was making big loops and no matter what tension it kept doing it. So I removed everything out of the bobbin area. Cleaned and made sure that the shuttlecock was exactly in place as per the manual. Guess what it does not make big loops any more.
Just a suggestion.

Brother CS-8150 Problems with bobbin thread


Double check to see if the bobbin is in upside down and the thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the wrong direction.

I did this once after several years using the same machine, some days are just not as easy as they should be!

Bobbin winder shaft won't spin. LCD says bobbin winding.


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!
