Question about Singer 6038 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

When I use the presser foot nothing happens. The machine is plugged in, turned on and everything is set up correctly. I was told my a not so reliable source that the motor may be shot. But, the machine is only a couple years old with light-moderate use. Any suggestions?

Even though it's only used moderately the motor can go out,
does the light come on?
try plugging the sewing machine into a different outlet
check to make sure the power cord is pushed all the way in
it also may be the power cord itself that has gone out
it could also be the on & off switch

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.

Presser foot stopped working I turned


Did you connect your machine then press the foot control before you lowered you presser foot? I have a CS6000 and that is what E1 means on my machine. You did not put your model number in so I don't know. You can look in your manual or go online to www.brother-usa.com and look it up for your machine. Try unplugging and plugging it in again, but put your presser foot down then step on your foot pedal.

Thread getting bound up under the machine, when i pull the fabric away from machine to cut the thread 3 strings come out from the bottom and one from the top.


Open the needle plate and clean away the thread that has tangled there.

Re-thread the machine - always with the presser foot up.

Check the manual to be sure the bobbin in correctly in place and the thread is feeding in the correct direction and through the proper guides.

When you stop mid-seam, lower the presser foot into the fabric to anchor it in place. Do this when turning a corner or sewing a curve.

When the presser foot is up, the tension control opens and this may be what has happened in your situation.

Presser foot lever


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls try a reset. This could be accomplish by unplugging the SE-270D from the mains. After an extended period, plug back in and power on normally. In some variations, there would be a reset button/key/switch.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Make sure you're using the correct foot for the stitch. Is this during sewing or embroidery? Take off the bobbin plate using the screwdriver and remove the bobbin. Make sure everything is clean under and around the shuttle. If you've ever broken a needle the tip might have fallen down into the mechanism and occasionally be jamming it.
