Question about Brother SE-270D Computerized Sewing Machine

Presser foot lever

The power went off at my home while the SE-270D was on. When the power came back on the machine was still in on position. Now when I press the foot control the screen says lower presser foot lever, which I did but each time I try to proceed it gives me the same signal. So I touch OK , then lower presser foot, then the same thing happens. I guess the computer is not recognising that the presser foot lever is down. Please help.

Try turning it off and disconnect the foot pedal (depends on the model).

Worst, the power surge damaged the sewing machines small computer and it will require service.

Hi, turn the machine off and reconnect the cables, a power surge may have damaged something. so connect everything again and turn it on, do you still have the problem? if you do something is possibly blown..

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls try a reset. This could be accomplish by unplugging the SE-270D from the mains. After an extended period, plug back in and power on normally. In some variations, there would be a reset button/key/switch.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

When I push down on the thread cartridge, it won't go all the way in and then the threader pops back up. This has never happened before.


Lets start with this. Make sure your presser foot is up and the needle bar is in the up position aswell. Also make sure that the thread spool is the right size for the caset.

If you are lifting the presser foot and it sorta holds then drops down.....its probably worn and needs replacing. If the machine is well used thats usually the culprit. There is a lob on the presser foot lever that wears and causes it to not stay up. No easy solution other than changing the part.....best left to a pro.

The tension is wrong


Ok,...to see if the tension is functioning properly, thread the machine and be sure the presser foot in in the up/raised position. When the foot is up the thread should pull easily thru the eye of the needle, lower the foot and the thread should become harder to pull thru the needle (set the tensiondial on 4 or 5). If it as I described, the tenson is working.

CLICK AND GRIND IN 270D BROTHER SEWNG MACHINE


Make sure you're using the correct foot for the stitch. Is this during sewing or embroidery? Take off the bobbin plate using the screwdriver and remove the bobbin. Make sure everything is clean under and around the shuttle. If you've ever broken a needle the tip might have fallen down into the mechanism and occasionally be jamming it.

Brother Computerized Sewing Machine SE 270-D


Unfortunately, I had to send my machine to a registered Brother repair shop. It was still under warranty but cost $25 to ship. If yours is brand new, I would suggest taking it back for a new one. I went without mine for a month and a half while it was being repaired. Hope it works out for you!

Turn power switch to "0"
raise the needle to highest position by turning the wheel toward you(counterclockwise) and raise the presser foot lever
release the foot by raising the lever located at the back of the presser foot assembly
place a different presser foot on the needle plate so that the bar on the presser foot is in line with the slot on the shank
lower the presser foot lever and fix the presser foot onto the shank. If the p foot is in the correct location the bar will snap in you should hear a click or snapping sound let me know if this helped thanks! amy

Brother SE-270D - need timing instructions


If your machine bunch up the tread, it has nothing to do with timing. In 90% of the cases the problem lies with the top thread. Check your tension disks for any fluff or thread. Also check that you thread the machine correctly. The best way to check the tension is to thread the machine normally with the presser foot up. when you get to the stage of the threading the needle, first lower the presser the presser foot and check the tension by pulling the thread slowly with your right hand and adjust the tension with your left hand. On zero you should be able to pull freely and on 5 there should be enough resistance. If this is the case your machine should sew perfectly.
Hope this help

"Lower presser foot" error on SE 270D


This happened to me and I eventually realized that there is a small door flap at the top near the "4" in the threading series that can get stuck open. Normally this flap goes up and down with the presser foot, but if it gets stuck open even when the presser foot is down, tapping it or closing it manually will make the error go away.1_9_2012_12_19_55_am.jpg
