The 'Fo4' error code is not listed for your machine. The only thing close would be "Trying to embroider with the foot pedal attached". Make sure the foot pedal is NOT attached when you turn the machine on.If you still have the manual, the error codes are started on page 153.

My Brother SE-270D shows error F04 in screen

My machine shows FO4 message and none of the buttons are working for this message.


There are 2 things that cause the F04 error.
1 - Wrong foot control: If you have 2 machines, you might have them mixed up between machines.
2 - Burned out foot control.

Bring the machine to a Brother shop; try the new foot control on your machine before you buy it.

The part number is XC7290051
Alternative Part Numbers Include XC6651321, XC6651221, XC6651121, XA3931051, XC1154051 & XC6651051

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.

My Brother SE 270D will not read my Ped Basic memory card. I used this card several times before without problems


Usually this indicates a design larger than 4x4. Check the design on you PED Basic to see what size it is and then use a sizer program to shrink it if that is the problem.

Error message on Brother SE-270D


I had the same issue a few years back but with actual symptoms of malfunctioning. I had mine fixed under warranty. The service tech told me it was a faulty circuit board. Works perfect now. I think the warranty is only for the first year to cover labor and parts. Not sure how much it would be out-of-pocket. This happened within 3 months of a brand new purchase. Hope this answered your question.

Fo4--What does it mean and where do I find the translations?


F04 is foot control error. It is probably a bad foot control, but it may be the plug in on the machine or a circuit board.

You can run the machine without a foot control for now; just unplug the foot control from the machine and use the Start/Stop button like you would when embroidering.

Before replacing the foot control, you should bring the machine to a Brother shop and try a new control. If the new one works, then the control was the problem.

Instrucitnos for Brother SE-270D Timing Problem


This is not really something you can do yourself (been there, tried that!). The machine has to be almost completely disassembled to get to the timing mechanism. Trust me, it's worth the 30.00 to have it timed.
I think http://www.allbrands.com has a generic timing explaination for sewing machines (use the drop in bobbin one)...I found it easy to follow...but once I realized I had to unplug all the components for the computerized functions... I took it in to the dealer. If you contact Brother & your machine is under warranty, they will pay for the repair (they paid for my first two re-timings). Now I know you HAVE to use BOBBIN thread that is 60 WT only in the bobbin. You will continue to have problems if you don't. Also, this machine uses the class 15 bobbin, but make sure its model number SA156A, which is a hair taller than the SA156 bobbin..both are class 15, but the tiny difference is very important.
