I need to take apart my Brother SE 400 so I can replace the spool pin.


This is general information for all sewing machines. There are often hidden screws inside and clips that can not be seen. You can gently pry the machine apart and see where it is hanging up. Often the screws are reached from the side with a long Phillips screwdriver. You will need a flashlight to see them. Some models have access to the cover screws after removing a knob or the bottom plate.

How 2 fix Brother's CS-8060 bobbin auto winder to work?


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. 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. 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 8080s apart last week to replace the drive rubbers. The first took nearly 1.5 hours, the next 1 hour as I knew what I was about.

I am sorry the 3rd image is so small. It shows the screw to remove to access the arrowed screw in the second image

How to remove brother XL2230 sewing machine case


Take off the panel that conceals the lamp (see your instruction manual) and you will see another screw that needs to be removed before you can take the larger back panel off.

I need to take apart my Brother XR-52 sewing maching to replace the spool pin. I have removed all the screws and cannot figure out how the case comes apart. Thank you.


XR-52 (and probably similar) has 9 screws on the back and bottom that needto be undone - be sure to keep track of which screw goes where becausethey're almost all different. One other screw is under the "nose" piece which holds the front shell to the back - it just needs to be loosened. After you haveremoved the 9 screws and loosened the one I mentioned you start at the bottom and pry apart carefully of course, noticing that the last part comes apart at the top where the three wheels go thru the back shell. In order to take off the front shell you need to remove two more screws, also fairly obvious. Reassembly is opposite order being sure when you get ready to put the back on that you align the three wheels at the top first, then work down to the bottom, replacing all the screws. That's really it - not rocked science. Just be sure not to over-tighten screws going into plastic. Have fun!

I took my machine apart to correct a problem and I'm looking for help reassembling the machine. I really just need to know where the screws go.


depending on how far apart you took it you may need to take it to a service technician. if its only the cover plates the newer machines usually only have screw holes on the back of the machine and usually under the handle.

How do I disessemble Singer 6038 sewing machine


There are hidden plastic snaps inside the seams of the front and back shells of this model. You will think you are breaking it if you try to pry them apart and you may. Wish there was a better way.

Is there a secret to getting the cover apart?


Hi Glenn.
I find it very difficult to get imformation for your machine model.
So try this.
If the two parts are still holding near to the handwheel, I beleave that there is a hidden screw under the handwheel.
Try to remove the handwheel and check.
