Question about Brother CS-100-T Computerized Sewing Machine
I keep getting the "E6" error message whenever I try to sew something. I can't figure out what is jammed. I took all of the thread out but cannot get rid of the error message. Any help?

My niece has this machine, was recently helping her sew with it -- I go the E6 code also - I believe it is the button lever is down - it is the white/beige 'flag' arm beside the presser foot - it needs to be raised back up to the case housing to clear the error - it means you do not have the proper stitches for the foot. Good Luck.

Are you using the right size needle? Try using an 80. Also try taking it to a service center. To find one near you go here: http://www.brother-usa.com/service/

I am in the middle of fixing this same error. I phoned Brother service in Manchester and they are spot on. Give them a try, they talk you through the problem and suggest things to do to narrow down the cause. Make sure you have the model and serial number as this saves time. In extreem cases you can send your machine to them by parcel post and they will look at it free of charge and then give you an estimate for any repairs needed. If you decide not to go ahead, you can elect to have the machine returned to you for the cost of the postage.
In my case I bought the machine second hand off of E-bay and was getting the dreaded tangle/needle message. I phoned the service department and I was told to thread the machine up and switch on. Then they give you several things to try. Essentially you need to get someone to press the start button while you immediately turn the handwheel forward gently and smoothly.
If this stops the message coming up then you must suspect the motor or its fuse. In my case, it would seem the machine had been dropped as there was a hairline crack in the circuit board which stopped the power getting to the motor.
