Question about Brother CS6000i Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

BOBBIN WINDER NOT WORKING RIGHT

When I use my machine, it winds the bobbin too much at the bottom. Where it almost looks like a hersey's kiss. I have called brother many times, to no avil. And i also belong to yahoo group for sewing machines like mine and no help.

Sometimes it winds the thread under the bobbin too and is very hard to get out. But not inside the machine.

My machine was bought in 2000, but has not been used til this yr, I have not sewn one item on it yet. I purchased it at walmart, and its been discontined there, so no help there either.

What if this is just a lemon? Where can I go then?

I have been sewing for many years, my other machines are white 8910, 17 yrs old works perfect, my singer featherwieght, no problem, and other singers in the past.

Is Brother just a dud?

    ok where or what is the "guide"



    i was told never to allow magnets near a computerized sewing machine, same as you would keep them away from a pc?



    i was already told to use my finger to guide the thread, but i think for a new machine, i shouldnt have to be doing this every time i wish to thread a new bobbin.



    My 17 yr old white i never have to , but it threads on the lower right of my machine.

    ok we just looked at my machine and i do know where you are talking about now, just saying "guide" threw me, lol.



    thread guide i knew. and i have tried adjusting it before , but i will try again later when i get offline for a while,



    its just there is no way i can use my finger to guide the thread up and down to get a evenness like others have suggested due to me having carpal really severe up to my shoulders and i have fibromyalgia.



    but i really do appreciate the help.



    i know this should be a simple thing, but i have talked to lots of other people who own a brother machine and they are having the same problem, and this has bothered me so much my finacee even bought that $30 side winder, and it was a bigger joke and went back. Others didnt like it either. As I belong to a brother yahoo group for sewing.

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.

    The thread guide is held in position usualy, with a screw.

    Undo the screw, and lift the guide by 2-3-mm.

    If you can't adjust the guide, the only solution, is to lift the thread, between the guide and bobbin winder, by puting something under the thread.

Each machine is different. Most of the machines that are electronic have a sensor to shut it off if you place the bobbin on the winder and push the winder into its position to wind. Give it a try. Also, check your spindle at the end to pull it outwards or attempt to untighten like you do a jar. This is the old mechanical machine but it is possible this machine uses it. Next you must look on your monitor for a particular symbol that represents the bobbin. This would likely be a button to turn it off and on.

Broken bobbin winder


For $29 at Hancock, Jo Ann's or Wal Mart you can get a thing called a Side Winder that will wind your bobbins without using the winder on your sewing machine. It has the additional advantage that you can wind while sewing. I use it even with machines that will wind bobbins.

INSTRUCTION BOOK FOR DESIGNER 1 DOES NOT COMPLETE INSTUCTIONS FOR BOBBIN WINDING - SAYS TO PUSH BOOIN DOWN WON'T HAPPEN


I'm not sure what you mean about this. When you want to wind a bobbin, you put it on the bobbin winder pin on the upper right side of the front of the machine, and then push/slide it down towards the bottom of the machine; it goes about an inch or so, and then the screen will say "bobbin winder engaged." The bobbin is now in line with the fat lever that will automatically stop the winding when the bobbin is full. (I usually use my fingernail to guide the thread up and down a bit so that the bobbin is wound smoother.) If you have the same manual I have, that came with my machine about 4-5 years ago, the two pictures on the bottom right-hand side of page 10 will show you what I mean. -- BTW you can wind a bobbin with the machine threaded or not threaded. (pages 10-11) Also, always be sure to wind the bobbin with the logo-marked side up, the same way you place it in the bobbin holder when you are ready to sew. -- I hope this helps.

My bobbins sometimes don't wind right. The thread gets all tangled at the bottom of the bobbin instead of winding evenly. I'm sure it's user error because sometimes it works. Hoping you can help me figure...


when the thread is on the spool pin
1.guide the thread around the bobbin winder thread guide
2.insert the thread through the hole on the bobbin, threading from the inside to the outside
put the the bobbin spindle
3.push the bobbin winder spindle to the right (if you have a electronic machine the LED display
will show SP)
4.depress the foot control, when the bobbin is fully wound, stop it, & push the bobbin spindle to the left, cut the thread & remove it from the spindle

Bobbin winder will not wind


The bobbin winder will not activate to turn the bobbin or the thread will not wind onto the bobbin spool?

Sewing machines vary in the method used for bobbin winding.

You can find threading and bobbin winding guides at sewusa.com.

If the winder is broken, you can get it repaired or check into getting a Sidewinder Bobbin Winder as an auxiliary for winding the bobbins, which would be less expensive than the repair.

Bobbin Winder Works--Stitching Does Not


The second microswitch that is located just to the right of the bobbin winder stop tells the machine that it is set to wind a bobbin.

If the machine does not indicate that the bobbin winder is engaged, the second microswitch is not the problem. The bobbin winder itself is what shifts the clutch. If it is pulled downward, the clutch is disengaged and the upper shaft does not turn. Place your thumb under the bobbin winder, push it upwards and the clutch automatically re-engages and the shaft will turn.

Be very careful with the touch screen cable with the front cover off. If it has the older style cable on it, they are very delicate when releasing and reconnecting. If you put the front cover back on and the touch screen does not work, this will be the most likely problem. You will need to have the touch screen replaced.

You need to get your bobbin winder turned off first, then worry about the stop contacting the thread. If the stop is not tripped, then it is in its normal position and everything should work fine.

When not filling a bobbin, simply raise the bobbin winder and you should be ready to sew. Look at the opening around the winder shaft in the front cover and you will need to have it up and to the right. Just push the shaft with your thumb.

Kenmore Sewing Machine model # c877.15


I have a Kenmore as well ,I hope that this will work for you ,too bad that I don't live close to you otherwise I would give a hand. This is the way I fill the bobbin on mine. Mine is located on the top right ,I put the thread into the bobbin hole leaving a small piece of thread hanging for me to hold when I begin the winding, I pull the wheele out to stop the needle from moving while winding, when I am done just push it back in .I run the thread from the spool into the top left it looks like a U turn with a screw go around that without winding just pull it into the bobbin hole. press the foot control and it will begin winding .
