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/

Showing E6


You receive the error message E6 when the motor locked up because thread is tangled or the machine is seizing up.

Remove the tangled thread, it it still happens that means your machine is seizing and requires service.

Motor revs up as high as it will go on its own but the needle doesn't move, then e6 message comes on and shuts motor down


The problem is a stripped gear. The unit requires a professional service person to install a new gear, unless you are capable of doing it yourself.

The sewing maching stops while it is sewing - makes a squeeling sound and has a E6 error message, but I don't see any thread anywhere that could be causing the problem


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

How do you clean brother SQ9050


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

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?

I have a Brother CS-770. My fabric got pulled down into my sewing machine and the thread got tangled and I got an error message E6. I untangled everything, checked my needle to make sure it wasn't bent...


Hi. It's very likely that the needle is inserted wrong. Take the needle out and make sure that the flat shank of the needle is facing away from you (to the rear of the machine).

Try this and let me know if it helps, ok?

My brother CE 4000 sewing machine freezes. After some tinkering I can sew a little then in happens again. It makes a shuddering noise then freezes and shows an E6 error message?


Turn off the power and remove the needle and presser foot.

Remove the needle plate, bobbin and bobbin case.

Clean the shuttle and surrounding area.

Replace everything.

Make sure the flat side of the needle faces to the back of the machine.

Raise the presser foot and re-thread the machine.

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.
