Brother NX-400. Never used. Error F04. I've looked for a model # for the foot for NX-400 to no avail. The foot that came in the box is Model T/FC-322. I can't help but think this is the wrong foot.


If you mean the foot controller, then the T/FC-322 is a substitute that should work. It's listed as a replacement here: http://www.sewingmachinesplus.com/234522001.php . The manual for the NX400 gives the foot controller as XC1154-051 . Brother changes the part number often but the wiring remains the same. Another substitute controller is available here: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/foot-control-w-cord-brother-xc6651121.aspx .

The F04 message may mean there is an internal failure. This probably needs to be fixed by a Brother authorized repair person.

I wish that I had better news for you.

I dropped the dog foot on my brother nx-400 and now it will not raise back up. Is there a schmatic chart where i can see if something is broke?


Hi,the first time I lowered mine the same thing happened. The machine was due for a service so I explained the problem.The engineer explained with a grin -- the come up automatically when you have switched over and start sewing again ---blush !

Nx400 error message F04?


I had the problem with the error code F04 and found out that it is your foot pedal for the machine. Unplug it and it should start right up as ours did.You will need to fix or buy a new foot pedal. When they repair and or clean your machine they don't use your foot pedal but they use their own so they will miss the broken foot pedal.

I hope this helps you.

My new nx 450 says f04 on the screen when I plug it in and nothing functions. How do I fix this?


Did you check the manual? In the back it will outline what the number/code stands for. Do you have it in twin needle mode? If you don't have a manual, try going to the brother website to read the manual. You can go to my website www.112sewing.com and click on machines and it will take you right to brother. good luck

What is err code F04


It most likely is your foot pedal. Unplug your foot pedal and start the machine without it. If it works properly without the foot pedal plugged in then your foot pedal needs repaired or replaced. This worked for us with the NX400 machine and I am sure the NX450 is closely similar. Don't bother to buy a Manual if you didn't already get one with the machine. A Service manual and parts manual is best; But just so you know they don't show the error codes unless you are a qualified and authorized repair person for the machines. I got my info from the repair man where my wife buys and repairs her machines. I am an electronic technician and mechanic so I understand how this system works. I will be repairing my wife's machines from now on.

Well i have my brother nx 400 over 6 years and keep looking for the holes to put my oil, but cant find them, i just read to never put oil in this machine is that true? even after so many years ????


Hi. Yes, it's true. Brother does have self-oiling sewing machines (I have a Brother CX-8060 that's also self-oiling.)

Hope this helps!
