In the window then note comes up E1 ERROR . What is this. It does not sew.

Consult the owner's manual. There is usually a list of error codes in the Troubleshooting section that discusses error codes and how to resolve them.

Error Codes differ from brand to brand, so it is best to search for your machine's make, model plus "E1," ie:

E1-Error message is apparently the fuse were is


The E1 error message. This is due to the fuse having to be switched from the 2.5 amp to a 3.5 amp. they did not recall the machine because of the low cost $2.99.

The Fuse is Located on the Board itself.

I guess the Part Number for your model is 000182177.

I have a brother ce4000. I am getting an e1 message every time I push the pedal. I have the foot in the down position. I have sewed something heavy and the automatic stop mechanism has been tripped. How do...

Page 62 of the manual does not have any reference to E1 requiring a re-set.

E5 does state to unplug the foot control and use the start-stop button. This might work as a re-set.

E1 Error

If your sewing machine show's the E1 Error, then you have to open your sewing machine and replace the fuse.(you have to open the right Cover on Front where the Display is placed, because there is the circuit board placed!) There are 3 Fuses in the Sewing machine and they are placed at the printed circuit board. It should be the Fuse in the middle. (not those with the wire in it!) It's not easy at all to open the machine, the best thing you can do (if you have a Digicam) take some Pictures of the wiring so it will be much easier to put it back together. I'm NOT an Expert; but a passionate hobbyist. ;) If you are too; just save yourself further trouble with the helpdesk, and fix it yourself. I hope this post could help you!
