Question about Brother CS-6000

While sewing locks up and stops

Barely after starting to sew the machine makes a horrible noise and locks up. I have changed thread, needles, took face plate off and dustied. There were no trapped threads. It also makes a tapping sound before it locks up. Prior to this it sewed fine.

How do I stop my singer prelude sewing machine from making so much noise?


Reset all dials. Straight stitch, 1 or 2 in length, ease the thread tension and see if it helps. The only area that makes noise is around the bobbin/needle part of sewing machines.

You need a fatter needle. The skinny needle will not open the leather enough for a smooth flow of thread and that's why the bobbin is bunching up when the top thread is sticking. Make it easier on your machine by using an appropriate size needle while sewing leather.

Bobbin jumping like telltale heart


try changing the bobbin and see if the problem still happens
and if it does happen again then the machine needs to be checked
to see if their is something wrong with the hook and hook race.

3. The needle is bent or blunt

4. The needle is incorrectly inserted

5. The needle thread & the bobbin thread are not set under the presser foot when starting to sew

6. the threads were not drawn to the rear after sewing
