Question about Brother SE-270D Computerized Sewing Machine
I have a Brother 270D too. I've had it for about four years and love it. It is a very picky machine sometimes and you have to treat it very delicately. I have had similar problems with the bobin in the past. Try removing the sewing plate by taking out the two screws that anchor it in. To accomplish this fhe first time, on my machine I had to use the flat head screw driver on my hubby's pocket knife because the screw driver that came with the machine had a handel that was too long to work with. After that, I kept the screws just tight enough to loosen easily with my thumb nail if I had to take them out, which I do on a regular basis. Now try removing the entire bobin case. Make sure your bobin case is not scratched! If if is, even a tiny scratch along the edge will cause major problems. This has happened to me, and you have to order a new one. I used an online dealer, spent $30 and my machine has worked great ever since. If your bobin case is not scratched, you are lucky and your culprit is most likely just fuzz or dirt. Try looking for any stray bits of thread that have gotten caught up under the bobin case or in the mechanisms inside the machine under the needle throught plate. If you had even one knot, odds are pieces of thread are still stuck inside somewhere. I use a can of compressed air to clean my machine on a regular basis and this keeps all the thread bits and fuzz at bay. You can also use the brushes that came with the machine and tweezers help too. Sometimes I just unplug my machine turn it uside down with the sewing plates off, and shake it gently. I am amazed at what come out! For some reason dirt seems to build up inside so clean it out regularly and you should have a much easily time sewing.
