The macine said it was an E6 error thread jam which I completely cleaned the bobbin area (not much there anyway) but I still cannot get it to not jam the thread on the botom. I have changed needles also.

Hello

This code tells you that the motor locked up because the thread is tangled. Untangle the thread, make sure the machine is threaded properly and that the proper tension is set before continuing.

It could be that the bobbin is being put in upside down check to make sure that you do not need a bobbin with a magnet on one side. also make sure there is no thread tangled inside the bobbin housing it will cause the timing of the machine to be off and cause issues with your needle picking up the bobbin and thus cause a mess inside you bobbin housing

My brother cs-6000i computer sewing machine shows a E6. I cleaned around the bobbin and checked the needle. I replaced the bent needle and it still does the same thing "E6". What will fix this?


Follow the instructions below if you receive the error message "E6"
1. Check if the machine rattles and stops as soon as the sewing starts
- Upper thread could be tangled or threaded incorrectly
- Check that the thread take-up lever is threaded

- Raise the presser foot to raise the needle to its highest position and re-thread the machine
2. Remove the bobbin and bobbin case
- Clean any lint or loose threads

- Install the bobbin case so that the projection on it aligns with the spring and install the bobbin into the bobbin case

3. The needle could be bent
- Check that the needle does not hit the needle plate
- Replace the needle if necessary
- Make sure the flat side is facing the back
If the problem persists, your machine may require service.
If the machine is in warranty, call Brother Customer Service at 1-877-Brother (1-877-276-8437) for warranty options.
If the machine is out of warranty, contact a Brother Authorized Service Center for repair by clicking on the link below:

I'm new at this and my thread is jammed. I've moved the hand wheel back and forth but the dog feed was jamming it as well as now that I've removed it the bobbing will not spin completely.


Most likely you have thread wrapped around and in the bobbin area of the machine that is not allowing the machine's handwheel or bobbin to turn completely. Open up the bottom of the machine and remove all the thread, etc. that does not belong.

How can I free up the thread take up lever whcih is seized in my brother bc2100 sewing machine?


Cut the jammed thread away, carefully. It may only need the thread path cleaned of all loose thread bits after you cut off what's gotten jammed up on the lever.

When I turn the knob to move the needle to catch the bobbin thread, it hits something underneath and won't keep going down. The same thing happens when I turn the knob in either direction. It's...


Have you removed the bobbin case to clean it? If so, it probably needs to be reseated. Remove the bobbin. Take out the case and reinsert it. If you can't get the bobbin out easily, there is probably thread clotted up somewhere under the feed dogs. I usually gently rock the handwheel back and forth as I brush the bobbin case area to begin dislodging the "clot." It also helps to remove the throat plate so you have a better view of the mechanics under the feed dogs. You'd be surprised at all the goop that can be caught but you can't see. If you do find a thread clot, use a machine brush and tweezer to gently remove each thread bit. I really hope this helps you. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice. Thanks!

Ihave anerror E6 and I can no find the problem


Hi! The E6 error means the thread is tangled. I suggest you completely unthread the machine, including the bobbin. clean out any lint or bits of thread in the bobbin area, and carefully rethread.
Hope this helps!

Bottom tread keeps jamming and getting all knoted up. The display gives me an E6 error code. what can i do


try re-threading your machine. usually when the machine is jammed at the bobbin or when the needle gets stuck to the bobbin thread, it means that there is an error with the thread. make sure that the thread isn't pulled through the wrong side of the needle, wrapped the wrong way around the wheels on the top, and that the bobbin is threaded correctly. if this doesn't work, you may want to contact their hotline.

Brother CS-6000 Sewing Machine - Jam


I have the same problem and found that the bobbin case is scratched. These are quite expensive so I hope yours is something more simple. Keeping the bobbin area clean is also a necessity.
