Question about Brother PC-6000 Pacesetter

1 Answer

I had a broken thread and has to unscrew parts to get it out. I took off the "cover" on the left side of the front and then had to take off a piece inside that has a little a spring with a "hook" on either end of the spring. I cannot remember how it goes back on. Is there a picture of the front inside avalible?

I looked for Brother parts/assembly/disassembly type manuals and it looks like they do not sell them to consumers.Same goes for TV's too.You need a dealer username and password to access those.I am providing a link so that you may contact a Brother authorized service center.If you do not think it is that difficult,there is probably a local appliance type repair center which could probably fix it.Good luck!

    I don't know if it makes any difference but I actually have a PC - 8500.
    There is really nothing broken...I just unscrewed it and don't remember
    how it goes back on. Do you have Brother machines that you can
    view and advise me based on an actual machine not a manual?

    You're talking about the top cover which should unscrew from the back right?I looked at my wife's brother(lol) and hers is a little older.Was the part screwed in or just spring-loaded?

  • Greg McCarthy Jul 30, 2010

    Do you remember too if it was up and down or side to side?

  • Greg McCarthy Jul 30, 2010

    It sounds like it should be attached to the main needle arm which moves up and down.That's what it seems like anyhow because sewing machines have springs in that particular part to make it run smoother.If that doesn't help let me know.Good luck!

How do I remove the left cover on a phaff 2140. the piece that covers the tension discs.

Don't know this machine but would avoid pulling anything off as screws have a habit of pinging out and never going back. Try pulling a thicker piece of thread or fabric through the tension disks to dislodge whatever is there first

The little piece of metal that is the last thing the thread goes through before it threads the needles has fallen off. Is it normally screwed on or can I safely glue it into place?

Difficult to diagnose without a machine brand and model. Is it a thread guide or the needle threader that is broken?

If the needle threader is broken, they are very fragile and are easily broken. There are moving parts associated with the needle threader so gluing may not be the best answer. However, it is not working anyway, so even if glue doesn't work, you will still be in the same position. You could take it for service, but that could be expensive.

The other alternative is to manually thread your needle--not such a big deal since that's how it's been done for 100 years... It helps to apply saliva to your finger and wipe it over the back side of the needle's eye. Then when you poke the thread toward the eye, the moisture helps draw the thread through the eye.

The wheel won't turn on my singer sewing machine. And I know it not the motor. Thank you

If not the motor or wheel function - sounds like a threading/tension issue. For simple checks -1. You can try to unscrew the wheel counter-clockwise to remove and check for thread or something impeding the wheel tracking itself. 2. If this is not the case, check the thread has not broken off and tangled inside the front head cover where the threading guides are located. 3. Open bottom cover to check thread is not snagged on bobbin cover.

Took the back left cover piece off brother pc8500d and a piece feel out. What could this be

Always leave repairs of these delicate and complicated machines to the pros. " A Piece FELL out"? More than likely it's a broken part or part of broken part. Could be something that came unscrewed or ???
That's why the pros make the big bucks, we should leave the repairs to them.

Brother LS-2000 machine with the up thread not keeping a good tension. Is it possible to remove the plastic cover on the up thread spring to check for lint ?

I have a newer brother too. I suspect the case is put together much like a laptop or game console is these days. But before I would go that far... maybe try "flossing" it with a piece of light canvas or denim folded double. ;)

I keep getting "check and rethread the upper thread" error message

Hi....I also kept getting the check and rethread upper thread message, I\'d sew about 15 stitches and it\'d stop. Here\'s what I did. On the left of the machine, in the back there is a screw....loosen that screw, take cover off, then lift straigt up and out on the cover that has the 3 on it in your threading seqence. Next, I started inspecting and cleaning the thread route from top to bottom. Lo and behold....I get to the place where you come down the front of the machine and turn to go back up and I spot a little slit in the plastic piece so, when I was threading the machine I guess I was pulling it to far to the left causing it to wear a little slit in that, I finished cutting it off with a utility knife, used an emery board to smooth it down, put the covers back on and it works GREAT!!!! Who would\'ve ever that it\'d be so easy and save me a bunch of money!!! I sure hope this helps someone.

Threading machine

The machine is relatively simple to thread. This is what I do and I've had no threading problems. 1. Put thread spool on the spool pin and put spool guard over spool pin to hold spool onto pin. 2. Take thread and put it under the bent tab by the circle tensioner. bring the thread around the right side of the circle tensioner and bring around the front of the circle tensioner thing back to the top hook on the far left side of the machine. 3. Take the thread around the backside of the top hook think until it threads through the flat piece on the left side of it. 4. Bring the thread down through the first (right side) channel and under the plastic piece to the second (left side) channel. 5. Bring the thread up the second channel and around the moving thread holder and past it's flat metal piece to hold it. 6. Tuck the thread around the small wire thread holder below the needle screw. This may take a few passes to catch it. 7. Thread the needle from the front and run the thread between the teeth of the presser foot. 8. Put a bobbin in the bobbin case so that the thread pulls off the bobbin from the left side of the bobbin if you look at it from above. 9. There is a small channel in the bobbin case that is covered by the bobbin tension flat piece. Pull the bobbin thread through this channel and into the empty space where the needle thread will catch. 10. Place the bobbin case into the machine with the little set bobbin arm pointed to the sky so that it fits into the machine without wiggling to the right or the left. 11. Turn the, uhhh brain fart, the hand wheel until the needle comes back up with the bobbin thread hooked over the needle thread. Take a narrow thing, like scissors or a seam ripper and pull both threads until the bobbin thread comes up. Now your machine is threaded. Use these directions with the pictures in the book to get this machine threaded.
