You should have the proper needle for this machine. Please check the link below for some more information:

Jamming everytime you tried to stitch could be related to the needle problem.

Have a great day!

Hi


There could be several reasons why the needle keeps breaking.
Brother CS 4000 - the - 1162a1.gif


  • Make sure the needle is correctly inserted with the flat side facing the back and pushed up into the machine as far as possible.

  • The needle could have been damaged or bent.
    If so replace with a new one.

  • Make sure the fabric is not pulled excessively when sewing.
    Let the feed dogs move the fabric.
    Do not pull the fabric.

  • The combination of needle size, thread size and fabric is incorrect.
    Be sure to use the correct needle and thread size for the fabric you are sewing.
    (example: Denim-size 16 needle and 40-50 heavy duty thread).

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Brother Innovis 1e isn't stitching properly when the feed dogs are down


Skipped stitches
1. The needle is not inserted correctly
Remove needle & reinsert needle( flat side towards the back of machine)
2. The needle is damaged
replace with new needle
3. The wrong size needle is being used
Choose a needle to suit the thread & fabric
4. The foot not attached correctly
Check & attach correctly
5. If the above suggestions don't help then the machine needs to be checked
For a timing problem.

I have a CE-4000 model. In the middle of sewing,


When you put back in the bobbin case, there is a little "knub" that sticks out with a flat spot on the right (on the top side of it) that you need to ensure it rests gently to the left of the position finger bracket (silver metal piece, in the square of the bobbin case area its on the right closest to you).

When you put in initially, it was probably twisted clockwise and there was a gap between the knub and the position finger bracket and when you put the needle plate on in jams that bobbin case in that position and the needle just takes chunks out of it..

You might need a new bobbin case, try sanding out the needle marks with sandpaper.

Brother Innovis 4000 D stopped sewing


These machines are known to freeze up in the needle bar crank, even when only a couple of hours old. If it is less than a year old, a Brother certified service center will fix it under warranty.
