Question about Brother CS-6000
My Brother CS 6000 is about 1.5 years old. My son recently used it to hem his pants and when I went to use it, it won't work. It did have a thread jam in the bobbin case. I could not and still can't get the bobbin case out. I pulled all the thread out and the bobbin case still won't come out. I couldn't find a screwdriver small enough but with enough strength to loosen the screw on the faceplate to see if there is anything else in there. I kept testing the machine to see if I got all the thread out by pushing on the foot pedal It shudders and the needle tries to move but then it just locks up. That is when I noticed that the hand wheel was not moving. So I don't know which came first or which is causing the problem.
I continued to try to get the bobbin out. I finally decided to break it out. Once it was out I tried pulling the case out so I could see if anything was jammed underneath. It took a lot of work but it finally popped out like the manual said it should. I cleaned it out, nothing really dirty, no thread jams. When I went to put it back together I noticed that the way to put it back was not the way the case was sitting when I took it out. So I figure that my son must have jammed it and somehow knocked the bobbin case out of alignment. I put it back in correctly and it works just fine now!
