I have a brother cs-8060 sewing machine but I don't have the manual for it. When I start to sew the machine makes a loud sound the and woont sew normally and then I get an E6 flashing on the machine.


An E6 error indicates a thread tangle. Combined with the noises you are hearing my guess would be that the tangle is around the take-up lever pivot and is seizing the machine (causing an overload - hence why it won't sew). The origin of this is often a further thread tangle between the tension disks, which has allowed the thread to fly loosely around the take-up. Your best bet will be to take it to your local sewing centre. This is the sort of issue we commonly address as a part of servicing. You will find a description of what you might try in the Service Centre section of our shop's website http://www.kornacraft.com.au/sewingcentre-under-the-covers/

How can I free up the thread take up lever whcih is seized in my brother bc2100 sewing machine?


Cut the jammed thread away, carefully. It may only need the thread path cleaned of all loose thread bits after you cut off what's gotten jammed up on the lever.

E6. Motor locked up because the thread is tangled. I have re-threaded machine and bobbin; thread still tangles after 2 or 3 stitches. HELP!


In my Brother CE-4000, it appears as though the feed dogs (which you can change to a higher position or a lower position) are allowing the bobbin case to spin all the way around and then the needle hits the bobbin case. When the feed dogs are in the lowest position, the bobbin case does not spin all the way around when the needle moves up and down (and therefore the needle does not get stuck in the bobbin case. I am wondering if this is a problem with the feed dogs/case?

Bottom tread keeps jamming and getting all knoted up. The display gives me an E6 error code. what can i do


try re-threading your machine. usually when the machine is jammed at the bobbin or when the needle gets stuck to the bobbin thread, it means that there is an error with the thread. make sure that the thread isn't pulled through the wrong side of the needle, wrapped the wrong way around the wheels on the top, and that the bobbin is threaded correctly. if this doesn't work, you may want to contact their hotline.

Machine is telling me E6 error but there is no thread tangled


If your thread is not tangled .The E6 will come up also if the top thread is not threaded properly. Is your thread breaking at all ?

E6 error on CS-100, thread underneath all knotted and tangled, makes grinding sounds.


Your bobbin is not wound correctly. Check and see if your bobbin thread is wound to loose or unbalanced.
