Question about Brother CS-6000
I have read all the other questions regarding a mysterious E1 error message that is not cause by a raised presser foot or depressed reverse button and none of the solutions offered have helped me. Does anyone have another solution to this problem? Or know if it is even solvable? It seems an awful like a computer error to me, rather than a mechanical or operational one...
Did you take this machine apart? If so, then the lever that extends from the thread tension wheel is to the right of the raised presser foot switch plate (inside the sewing machine), keeping the switch from being unpressed.
Take the machine apart again, raise the presser foot, and put the machine back together. This will ensure proper alignment of the plates.

This helped me! Just had taken my machine apart to clean and sure enough my lever was to the right of the switch instead of left.

E1 is telling you that the main motor is working to hard so the machine keeps you from sewing make sure your handwheel feels smooth when turning if not remove the side cover by the needle bar and check to make sure there isnt thread around the take-up lever or try cleaning your hook area

Hi! I have a CS5055PRW and I just can't find the lever your talking about. Could you please help me? I need to get some projects done today and I've been struggling to make that E1 disappear. THANKS IN ADVANCE!

I was so proud of myself For taking the machine apart and fixing the original problem (thread wrapped around the crank shaft 200 times!) and the machine worked beautifully when turned by hand.... but E1 error when I pushed foot pedal. This switch was exactly the problem: Yea!!! I now have my machine humming along nicely. Thanks!!!

I have a Brother SQ9185 sewing machine and had to take it apart to adjust the timing. (Thank you YouTube video) But instead of trying to ensure everything is going to work before putting it back together, I had to rush myself and try to get back to my projects. The E1 message appeared and wouldn't go away. I was about to take it back in to exchange it since it was only two months old with everyday use. Determined to make it work, I found this review and saved my pride and machine. We are back on track and ready to resume the projects. Thank you for your answer and question. I would be done without it.
