Question about Brother SE-270D Computerized Sewing Machine

Safety Feature engaged Brother 270 D

I was 2/3 of the way through an embroidery pattern when my machine jammed and the safety feature engaged and stopped my machine. I checked to make sure I didn't have any thread tangled up. It didn't, Re-threaded the upper and lower thread and attached the hoop. I was prepared to finish the pattern. When I hit O.K. on the screen and Start.....My machine acted like it was jamed up again and the safety feature engaged again. When I try to manually move the needle, it acts like it's hung and won't move. Does it need to be cleaned, and if so how? It acts like a belt has broken, or the gears have gotten stuck. Is there a reset somewhere? I just got this machine a little over a year ago. I'm desperate to get it fixed.

Push the button to put the needle in the up position. Take the hoop off the unit and chekc everything. Rethread the top thread. Take out the bobbin and remove the bobbin plate (the plate, not just the cover). Check under and around the bobbin shuttle as best as you can for threads and lint. Use the brush to remove any lint clumps. If it still not working I would try switching the machine off. If you leave the item hooped and you didn't adjust your design any with the machine before you started stitching you should be able to put it back correctly. Turn the machine back on and try again, skipping ahead in the design to where you stopped before of course. If it still doesn't work contact Brother customer service.

I've got a brand new brother see 400 just got it ready to embroidery for the first time never been used and it says safety device has been activated what is wrong


Um, it is brand new? Take it back and have the vendor check it out or get a replacement. If the safety feature has been activated, it probably is not safe to use in its current condition.

Machine locked up with needle down in the machine


If you can, try to remove the needleplate and the bobbin case from the machine. Once the bobbin case is removed, the needle should be free.

At start up machine says press needle position button. All that happens is the motor revs up then says safety feature has been activated. Any ideas?


I used this machine in my middle school classroom. That message was in the first start up of the machine, I think it just resets the machine. The larger model also has a beginning reset button that just adjusts the arm of the machine. Is the machine working fine after the reset? Hopefully "sew"

How to transfer embroidery patterns to Brother sewing/embroidery machine


Machine designs first designator is the file name. Your machine shows the file number for the design you want. You do still need to "select" that design number shown to actually begin teh file transfer from a thumb drive or cable direct from your computer if your machine has that feature.

Brother 4000D does not sew out patterns correctly and sometimes jams.The designs are sewn with parts missing or in wrong position. I have tried the same patterns on my Pfaff and no problems but my 4000D...


Try sewing instead of the embroidery feature.

If the stitching is messy, the machine needs to go into the shop for service by an authorized Brother dealer as the timing needs to be adjusted. Take a sample of the problem with you.

Brother 2003D jammed


i am not familiar with the brother safety device myself. however things i would check might be to first check the manual for the machine. if not available try to turn the machine off if it is electronic in hope that it would reset itself. i would also totally unthread the machine and change the needle. embroidery machines need to have needles changed more often due to their high speeds.What type of fabric were you sewing on? Some of the newer machines are just not made to sew on very heavy fabrics and this might be causing something in side to spring. Try to stitch on a lighter fabric with a stabilizer under it
