try rethreading the machine top and bobbin make sure the bobbin is turned the correct way try another bobbin try a new needle-one that is for the fabic being sewed if none of these suggestions help then it would be a good idea to have the machine serviced
try changing the needle try rethreading the machine top and bobbin make sure to use every thread guide this is important for the tension try using a different bobbin clean under the needle plate and in the bobbin area for lint also possible that the machine may need some type of adjustment or the machine could be starting to have a timing problem
try these things new needle rethread machine--presser foot & needle to highest position keep a check on the thread take up lever, when the top thread come off the thread take up lever it can also make the machine jam
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?
actually e2 is the button hole lever being down. e6 means that the thread is tangled and to prevent the motor from overheating the machine automatically stops. All you have to do is re-thread the machine and take the bobbin out, untangle it and put it back in and sew. This usually works. If it keeps happening, there could be a few things wrong.
1. if you are using thick fabric your tension should be lower. normal tension is 5.
2. your machine is out of alignment. take it in to a service center, they can fix it in 5 minutes. to find a service center near you go to http://www.brother-usa.com/service/
3. your needle is old or bent and should be replaced.
4. Your needle is too thick, standard is 80. The thicker the fabric, the thicker the needle.
