Question about Brother CS-80
The Brother CS80 autothread cassette no longer works after maybe 20 hrs of sewing time. There is a wire sticking up with a loop on it the the right of the cassette. Is there a way to thread this machine manually to use it? I love all the stitches it makes, Not sure what the warranty is on one. We have had this one 18 months, so it is probably out of warranty. I took it to a shop and they wanted $99 to even look at it. We only gave $160. for it. Do you know how to use it without the auto threader and/or where to find a repair manual that shows how it should look inside where this wire with a loop on it is sticking up.Thanks. If you would like you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have you tried using the 'Extra Spool Pin' that came with the sewing machine? It is normally used for spools that don't fit in the cassette. When using the extra pin, make sure there is no needle in the machine when feeding the thread through the machine. Then install the needle and thread the needle manually. Check out the manual on page 24.
Hope it helps.

I do know that you can purchase new cassettes on ebay for about $15.00. I understand that they can fail after a while. A service call may not be necessary. You may be able to purchase one from a dealer as well.
