I have a brother CS-8072 sewing machine and need help winding bobbin. I followed the instructions in the manual but it didn't work.
What were the results of your bobbin-winding attempt?
Make sure the thread path is correct for bobbin winding and that the thread is seated in the tensioner. Most machines, it is better to NOT wind fast--although your machine says the opposite (???).
It looks like your thread comes off the spool goes to the left, through a guide, down to the front of the tensioner and the doubles back to go behind the tensioner before going to the bobbin. (Looks the thread goes counter-clockwise in front of the tensioner, then doubles back and goes clockwise around the back of the tensioner.)
Also, the problem may have to do with the spool type you are using. Try a different thread and spool--AVOID old or bargain bin threads.
If you still have problems, there is a stand-alone bobbin winder (called Sidewinder) for about $30 that is helpful to have. (Verify it will work with your machine's bobbins!) It is great because you can wind bobbins without unthreading your machine and it saves wear and tear on your machine.
