Babylock ellure plus embroidery machine, error message

Error message is "the safety device has been activated" and the user manual tells me that the thread is tangled, this is not the case. The sewing machine will not start and will not embroider.

Any help you can give is appreciated

The fact that your machine is turning hard says you still have some thread inside the machine that is binding up and activating the safety device. It must turn easily before it will work properly again.
Sometimes the machine must be disassembled to remove these threads.

I have the same problem, I have done what the book says but no luck yet. Have you figured out what happened? And do the experts really check the questions? Cause I asked a question awhile ago, and no answers. Help!

Dear Magarita, The safety device is activated when thread gets entangled around the bobbin case. First check by removing the plastic see-through plate. If necessary remove the 2 scews on the metal needle plate and remove the bobbin case completely. Put it back and test by turning the handwheel. It should turn freely.

Hope this solves your problem.

Safety device has been activated and dont see anything wrong


First thing, install a brand new needle.

Next, remove all the thread. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning making sure it follows the correct pathway.

Rethread the bobbin case making sure the thread is in the bobbin tension and that the bobbin turns the correct direction in the bobbin case.

Clean away any thread and lint debris around and under the feed dogs and in the bobbin area.

Oil the machine with fresh, good quality sewing machine oil as instructed in the owner's manual. Do NOT use 3-in-1, WD-40, cooking oil, or the old smelly stuff in the oil tin from Grandma's sewing basket.

Turn the machine off for a few minutes and then turn it back on.

If it still has an error code, you should probably take it for service.

Safety Device Activates but no error message


It sounds like there may be something inside the machine. This happened to me twice. The first time was the wrong stabilizer. The second time I had a piece of thread inside the machine. When I opened it to see the thread was activating the error beep in the machine. I hope it helps.

Messages about safe device activated & press the needle position button


The noise is because the machine is trying to raise or lower a needle and can't move. Several things to check. Did the needle break and jam in the bottom thread? Is the needle bent or jam? Did the thread jam in the bobbin area? I had a 'knot' of thread build up on the bottom and it hooked itself into the metal clip on the bobbin so that the needle couldn't raise. If thread jams in the bottom carefully cut the threads until you can free the hoop and material. Then check to make sure all pieces of thread and fuzz has been removed in the bobbin case. If it happens again check to see if the bobbin case or the throat plate is scratched or bent. If you are stitching Free Standing Lace on this machine or a piece with over 20,000 stitches I recommend starting with a new full bobbin and a new needle. As you get toward the bottom of the bobbin, thread seems to have a high likelihood of tangling or looping.

Return the bobbin winding shaft on the top right of the machine to the Left Position. It may be stuck in the middle.
I had this same problem. After an hour or two of fiddling, this fixed my problem.

Dear Wendy,

The E4, error message means the safety device is activated. Machine is locked up due to thread entangled with the bobbin case. Remove the needle plate and bobbin case. Check for any thread around the hook area. Also check your handwheel. It should turn freely. Good Luck
