Question about Brother SE-270D Computerized Sewing Machine

MFC Applicaton stopped working

I don't know if you can help me or not but i'm getting an error that says MFC application has stopped working. It's coming up when I open one of my embroidery programs. I have deleted the program and reinstalled but i still keep getting this message.When I reinstalled the PED BASIC program (brother embroidery card reader program) it still comes up with the error. It's saying on my problem sheet that the Brother Driver is not compatible with my version of WIndows.... I'm running it on my lap top. That's all it says..I get a pop up that just says MFC APPLICATION STOPPED WORKING, windows will close program and find solution...it never shuts down until I do it. My machine is the Brother SE-270D, but the problem is with the PED BASIC software. And I've narrowed it down to the drivers...something is not compatible with them!!

SOURCE: PED basic card

I had a similar problem and message on my Deco 650 and found that I misunderstood writing to the disk on my PED Basic. When I pressed the write button it came up with a note saying that it would delete all designs on the card. I'd just spent hours learning how to use it (?) before I realized I had not truly 'written' the patterns to the card.

SOURCE: Instrucitnos for Brother SE-270D Timing Problem

This is not really something you can do yourself (been there, tried that!). The machine has to be almost completely disassembled to get to the timing mechanism. Trust me, it's worth the 30.00 to have it timed.
I think http://www.allbrands.com has a generic timing explaination for sewing machines (use the drop in bobbin one)...I found it easy to follow...but once I realized I had to unplug all the components for the computerized functions... I took it in to the dealer. If you contact Brother & your machine is under warranty, they will pay for the repair (they paid for my first two re-timings). Now I know you HAVE to use BOBBIN thread that is 60 WT only in the bobbin. You will continue to have problems if you don't. Also, this machine uses the class 15 bobbin, but make sure its model number SA156A, which is a hair taller than the SA156 bobbin..both are class 15, but the tiny difference is very important.

Take it back to the store, get a replacement. If it is under warranty you don't want to be futzing about inside. Just go get another one.

My on off switch went. it is now loose and wont work. Where can I buy a replacement? It is two weeks until Christmas and my daughter is using this to make her Christmas presents.


You will need to find a local Sewing Service Centre and see if they can help....I don't even know what continent you are on !!
I stopped taking new servicing orders end of last week to get clear for Christmas....borrow a machine if you need to, but DO NOT use with a faulty switch.

Application error when trying to open futura


Futura installation integrity might be damaged, you need to uninstall everything Futura related, reboot pc and install from the beginning.
If you already did reinstall Futura but still get the error, you may launch troubleshooting utility and send its report to Singer.

Can't balance top/bottom thread tension-model 158.Bottom thread is a straight line. Have increased top tension to the stop. No effect.Have reduced bobbin tension until bobbin and case fall freely when held...


I disassembled the top thread tension controller consisting of 12-13 pieces, including 2 springs. Since they all fell out on the table I spent about 2 hours learning the proper stacking order on the central shaft.
With a combination of reasoning based on each unique piece shape and trial and error I put it back together, adjusted top and bottom tensions according to the instruction booklet for the machine, tested some stitching, made final adjustments and all worked well.
I don't know what was changed in the process but it worked.

Communication error for Customizer 2000


Is this the first time you've tried to use the Reader/Writer?

I ask only because many people don't realize that a necessary step in setting up communication is to set the "COM Port" designation within Customizer/Digitizer.

If you've not done this, within either application, go to >ScanCard>Communication Settings> and choose the COM Port you want to use (you can find out what COM port the cable's using by going to your Start/Task Bar in Windows>Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager>Ports (COM & LPT). There, you should be able to see what port your cable's using.

Then set that COM in your application's Communication Settings dialog box.

Hopefully, I made sense here and explained it well. If I didn't, please let me know where I went goofy and I'm more than happy to clarify!! :)

Also let me know if that does NOT solve your problem!!

Machine will not complete a buttonhole, keeps showing error code 6L. No error code listed in manual. Machine will only do first half of buttonhole and then shows code and stops.


I've been looking too and I found here http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/sewingclasses/board.pl?t=18328that you need to put the bar behind the needle threader down. I think they call it a button hole stop? I don't know, but it worked. I didn't even know it existed. But it solved my problem. On my Kenmore it looks like a black lever and you pull it down. It tells the button-holer that you are at the end of the hole and it needs to backup. nifty, kind of.
