Question about Brother Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I just purchased sewing machine Brother SQ9000 Heavy-duty Computerized Sewing Machine . When i wanted to wind a bobbin for the very first time i found out that bobbin shaft won't spin but I can hear the motor whiring. I did everything exactly by the instruction and it still doesn't work. What does it mean and what can i do to fix it? Please help.

Go to and you can see & download your manual for free, I also saw the quick start guide and you can blow up the diagram really large to see all of the detail. Make sure that you have your thread wound around the spindle right and you hold the thread tail for a few revolutions until it catches hold.

I have a Brother Innovis CS8060, the bobbin no longer winds completely, only halfway, can you advise?

being a computerized machine i would take it to a service center, if this isn't an option at this time next to the post you put your bobbin on is the depth adjustment, there is a screw in the top of it very gently loosen scew and slowly rotate the depth gauge until you think it is where you want it . you may have to sdjust it a couple of times before you get it where you want it so go slowly and carefully

You can either take the machine in for repairs or, use another sewing machine (if you have one that uses the same type of bobbin) for bobbin winding or purchase a Sidewinder Bobbin Winder - search the Internet for the best price.

Brother SE-270D sewing machine bobbin won't wind

the rubber ring on the bobbin winder has probably gone bad which would mean replacing it but you can buy a portable bobbin winder called a sidewinder for around 20.00

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,

Try to lift the guide before the bobbin winder, by 2-3 millimeters.
If you can't lift the guide, then put something between the two, (a magnet perhaps) just to lift the thread a little bit upwards during winding.

You need to adjust your top tension and maybe your bottom tension ( the little screw on the bobbin cover) Also check your needle and make sure it's straight.
