Brother SE-2700 Disney Machine - Safety Device keeps coming on!!

In the middle of sewing today my machine went nuts! The safety device comes on when the needle goes up or down - I have cleaned it, looked over everything I can think of - it seems like the wheel is too tight - it was fine and then all of a sudden it wasn't. Help!!!

    The safty device is activated warning comes on and locks up the machine. I have changed the needle, thread (both upper and lower) checked for nicks scratches or anything out of the ordinary and can find no cause for this. I had used it a few months ago and everything was fine then stored it and when I brought it back out I had this problem. Any solution would be great.

    I have a Brother PE700 and it is doing the same thing. It will embroider along fine then all of a sudden it locks up, the safety device has been activated warning comes on and then the wheel is very tight. A couple of months will go by and then it works again. I think that I move the machine around and somehow it miraculously heals itself. But I can't make it through a whole design. I have searched the web for this same problem and not having any luck. Not sure what it is and can't afford to have it fixed. Suggestions anyone?

Sounds like the timing is a little out.

If you remove the needle plate and turn the handwheel manually watch for the lower looper as it swings behind the Left needle....the needles ought to rise by only about 2mm before the looper passes......the looper must pass the needle above the eye to catch the thread, and be so close as to be barely touching the rear of the needles......if the left needle thread is not picked up, it may be the timing, or the distance between needle and looper.

For the uninitiated, there are a myriad of variables in correctly timing an overlocker (serger), and without the manual to refer to the correct parameters, you will rapidly descend down a road of despair....if you move a looper to advance or ****** the timing, you risk looper collision and a broken looper is almost as much as a service, so my advice is do the test to see if the timing is the likely culprit, and if so, take the opportunity to give the old girl a treat.

If you need to save for a while to do it, just use the 3 thread option for the time being.

its the problem of the timing belt in your machine its extra loosen or extra tightned or is slightly came out of its position or finally broken.
as the machine is proper just missing the proper speed as it should be .
it is running continuosly as you stated.
check the timing belt and make it proper if its worn out and needs replacement this is how its done

There is an adjusting screw on the right side of the machine head. Follow the motor bracket to the machine head and loosen that big old screw or bolt which will raise or lower the motor giving you slack to remove or replace the belt.

feel free for further queries
thanks

The safety device has been activated


Turn off the power supply and open the needle plate.

Remove the bobbin and bobbin case.

Clean the shuttle and surrounding area from any lint or thread that may have accumulated during use.

If the problem continues, the machine will need to be serviced by a Brother dealer.

Brother SE-350 "The safety device has been activated"


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.

Error message on Brother SE-270D sewing machine


The safety device will activate if the machine has a bind or is unable to run at correct speed. If you turn the handwheel is it tight/hard to turn? if it is than thats it. Now what is binding the machine has to be diagnosed.

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
