Question about Brother SE-270D Computerized Sewing Machine
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!!!

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

Make sure the bobbying is lettinng out the string first and also make sure the dial on the left side of machine is on 6 .when you turn the maching around , looking at the back make sure switch in too your right. Also just unplug the maching could help, my wife just had the same problem...

You might have thread caught in the take-up lever linkage and it has soaked up all the oil my recommendation would be take it to your local dealer
