Can't wind the bobbin

I have a Brother CS 8150 computerized sewing machine and can't get the bobbin to wind! It was working fine, then suddenly, the machine thinks it's winding but it just makes a whirring sound and doesn't engage the bobbin winding mechanism. Can I get inside the machine to get this to "grab"??? This is really dumb because I just want to sew a straight line! Thanks, Lani Reinhart

    cannot get the bobbin to wind. The inside of the machine is working. You can hear the whirling, but no bobbin threading is taking place on the bobbin. ???

Same thing happened to me so my dad and I took the bolts out of the back of the machine and pried it apart to see that the bobbin winder tire was melted and not able to engage. Not sure how it melted like that but we had to take the whole thing apart to get it out and replace it. Cheap part but a pain to replace. Good luck and if you find an easier way to replace let me know!

Your winder needs a new "tire." It's a pain to get inside these new electronic machines, but with a little ingenuity & determination it can be done. But first, go here: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/ Order a new bobbin winder tire for your model of machine, then -- good luck figuring out how to install it :)

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!

My bobbin winder stopped working on my Brother CS-8150. spindle locks in, motor runs, but it seems that the winder is slipping. Can this be adjusted?


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.

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!

I need to know how to change the bulb on a brother ps 33 sewing machine!


Hi, thank you for using FixYa! I don't see a model PS-33, however; you posted in the CS-8150 machine section, the link to the manual for a CS-8150 machine is attached. It has a section for winding and installing the bobbin and another section for upper threading. If your machine is not the CS-8150, please comment with the correct model number (PS machines start at number 1450 and increment upwards). If this is the correct manual, would you please take minute to rate this solution? Thank you! Gregg

Cannot wind the bobbin


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!
