    I have a brother XS 9000 bought last January.
    Was finishing the binding on my Christmas gifts last night and it made a horrible noise and stopped.

    It it stuck-----nothing will move. I have an E6 error code which is jam due to thread, but I have taken it apart and cleaned everything out (no thread or dust bunnies) removed the bobbin and assembly, needle and it's still stuck. I cannot get anything to move.



    Can anybody offer any suggestions?

    With most electronics, after "fixing", you have to unplug them for a few minutes. When you plug it in and restart it pray that it works!!

    OMG, I sure hope that does it. What does your manual say about that error?

    My thought also. Can't hurt, might help (like Maxine said about lemons in your bra). Good luck, hope it's something simple.

    I ran into a similar problem with my new Pfaff. After cleaning the bobbin case and removing the pressure plate more than once, turning the thing off a few times, unplugging it, it still gave me the error message and would not operate. Then I discovered a little button with a check mark on it and pushed that. It's an "okay" button that reset the machine and I'm off and running again.

    Did unplugging it fix the problem? Hope all is well with your machine!

    Nothing has worked so far. It is unplugged and sitting beside my table. Out came my old White standby.

    I guess I'll get it to the repair shop Monday.,

    Thanks all

    So sorry to hear nothing worked. Very frustrating. At least you can use the White and don't have to do something else like housework while the new machine is in the hospital.

    One more thought. Maybe you can call the shop where you bought the machine and see if they know the trick to put the machine back in operation. Might be something really simple.

    Hope it is nothing serious.....my 12 yr old Viking Computer 500 did that and it turned out to be a fried mother-board. Oh well, I ended up purchasing a new machine, after my husband talked me into that option!

    I hope it's nothing serious...maybe thread got loose and worked it's way into the main machinery. Take it to the pros. I went through all that stuff in June and my machine was fried, and i had to buy a new one. I hope that isn't the case with yours. I too have an old White machine...I just love it.
    Blessings,

    check to make sure there is not a bur/nick in the bobbin holder. My singer stopped working and I thought it was jammed thread but repair shop said was bur/nick in bobbin holder caused by crooked needle.

    Sometimes a timing issue will do that... had it happen on the Deco that I had ages ago. I checked around the web and found a place that talked about it and tried to fix it but ended up putting it in the shop. Hope that is all it is... it was a quick fix and gladly NOT and expensive one.
