Question about Brother CS-6000

2 Answers

What class bobbin?

I looked in the manual for the "bobbin class" for my rother CS-6000i, and instead found the size and the part code (7/16 inch, part code SA156.) The bobbins at the fabric store did not have the sizes or part codes, just the class number, and the store employees weren't knowledgable about sewing machines, and didn't have anywhere to look it up. (Jo-Ann Fabric- poor selection and lakadaisical customer service, I will not go back.) I feel silly even having to ask, but this is the first time I have had a Brother or any computerized machine, and there's alot I'm not familiar with.

The type of bobbin is, in fact, a Brother SA156. This is the only type of bobbin that will fit it, and there is no cross-reference. The Class 66 and Class 15 that you probably found at the fabric store will not be compatible.

The correct bobbins are readily available at any authorized Brother dealer, or online. They are actually a very common bobbin. I would recommend doing a web search for the nearest brother dealer to your location.

I found them (a pack of 10) on amazon . com for $4.76 + $5.02 postage. I also called my local brother dealer and they want $8.99 ... sorry small business, think I'll save on the gas and order online.

Why does my cs6000i the needle hits the bobbin case put nicks in case and then thread snags in the bad area


If you are talking about the bobbin case (housing), it may be inserted incorrectly. Remove it and put it in again, or the needle isn't seated correctly. Once the bobbin case is damaged, do not use it anymore or you will continue to have problems. If you mean the bobbin, change bobbins and see if you continue to have problems, as you might have the incorrect size.

F4 might mean that the bobbin on the top is in the position for rewind, slide bobbin to the right for the error code to go away. Hope this helps, Sandy

I keep getting error E6 on Brothers CS 6000i- I cleaned the thread several times and when I try to restart sewing it happens again. I've removed the bobbin and re-threaded and it keep jammin and beeping....


The motor locked up because the thread is tangled.
Solution:
Remove the tangled thread before continuing the operation.
Clean the bobbin case to remove the tangled thread.
After cleaning the bobbin case, insert the bobbin case properly.
If the needle is bent or broken, replace the needle.
Then, thread the upper thread properly, and continue the operation.

What kind of thread are you trying to use? Is it a decent fresh thread? If, it is old, throw it out and buy some fresh quality thread. Usually, cheap thread is the problem.

I need new needles and bobbins how do I find right ones


You can use Schmetz needles and the bobbins are Class A or Class 15. Both can be found where sewing notions are sold.

You choose the needle size according to the type of fabric you are sewing. This should be in the manual.

If you need a manual, you can download from the Brother website.

Unable to adjust tension,


Sounds like the bobbin thread is not inside the tension on the bobbin case. This normally happens when the bobbin is upside down. Insert the bobbin and pull on the thread.The bobbin should turn counter clockwise.
