Question about Brother CS-8060 Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

My Brother CS-8060/CS-80 is making a high pitched squeaking noise when I try to thread a bobbin. My manual has nothing about that kind of problem. I think it might be something to do with the belt or maybe a gear? Please help!

Hi! The first thing I'd do is look for thread caught on the bobbin winding spindle, but below the little platform where the bobbin sits. It's really hard to get at, but if you shine a light from the side, you should be able to bend your head (or tilt the machine back) so that you can see the underside of that platform. When I've gotten thread caught on that spindle, I take my scaple or a craft knife and carefully cut the thread free, then use a set of tweezers to pull it out. You're working in a very cramped area, so be patient and go slowly.

Make sure the lid that uncovers the bobbin winding mechanism is as far back as it will go; the same goes for the spool that holds the thread.

Sometimes I get a a high-pitched squeaking noise (but it's not loud) just sewing. It comes from the handwheel and I don't know why my machine does it. It stops if I push the handwheel in (although the handwheel doesn't seem to be out.)

See if these suggestions help--if not, let me know, and we can try something else.

Happy Sewing!

Brother cs-6000 will not sew, the top thread go through and tangles on back, and the bobbin thread is a straight line and can be easily pulled out, please help, trying to make kids school clothes


Hi:

Ok... so try to remember that loopy stuff on top means the bobbin tension is too loose (or the top tension is too tight...)

Loopy stuff on bottom, means the top tension is too loose. (or it's not threaded right)

Now. Get some scrap of the same material. Loosen that bobbin back to where it was. RETHREAD the top, with the foot in the UP position.

Place your scrap under the foot, and sew. still have problem? clip your threads and try again only this time hold the top and bottom threads off to the side as you begin to sew. How did that do?

Adjust the top tension to the point where you start seeing the bobbin thread come up in loops to the top... then back off until the disappear.

Now... be sure you have the correct thread and needle for your fabric. A lot of problem are caused by not having the proper needle and thread.

Brother cs-80 tension issue


Remove the thread from the machine. Install a brand new needle.

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the top thread. Set the upper tension to the midway point.

Insert the bobbin in the bobbin case (make sure it is turning the correct direction) and thread the bobbin tensioner. Install the bobbin case in the machine.

Insert the fabric under the presser foot. Lower the presser foot. While holding the top thread tail with your left hand, manually turn the handwheel (always toward you, never away!) one revolution until the top thread has pulled the bobbin thread up. Raise the presser foot and sweep both threads under the presser foot toward the back (you can use a stiletto, a pencil, or some other tool to sweep the threads). Lower the presser foot, gently hold both thread tails with your left hand and slowly turn the handwheel (either manually or by motor) to form a couple of stitches. Then let go of the thread tails and continue sewing.

If it continues to cause thread nests or you have other issues, then your machine may need service.

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.

What kind of thread are you trying to use? Is it a decent fresh thread? If, it is old, throw it out and buy some fresh quality thread. Usually, cheap thread is the problem.

Bobbin thread won't engage.


The bobbin case is not in the shuttle.

Raise the needle to it's highest position.

Lift the lever on the back of the bobbin case and hold it open as you insert the case into the shuttle; arm on the case pointing up. You may have to turn a bit to the left or right - it will click when in place.

Machine jammed


Turn off the power and remove the needle and presser foot.

Open the needle plate and bobbin case and clean the area, removing lint and the jammed thread.

Make sure the bobbin case is properly in place.

There is a maintenance section in the manual to show you how to remove the bobbin case and clean the machine.

Install a new needle with the flat side to the back of the machine.

Rethread the machine with the presser foot up.

Make sure the thread from the bobbin is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct direction and through the proper guides.

If you need a manual, you can download one at Brother.com.

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

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,

Brother Sewing Machine model:CS8150 bobbin thread problems


The top of the machine is not threaded correctly. First raise the presserfot then rethread the machine. Bottom looping is usually caused by a lack of top tension. There could allso be a bur on the hook.
