These machines are known to freeze up in the needle bar crank, even when only a couple of hours old. If it is less than a year old, a Brother certified service center will fix it under warranty.

SOURCE: Broken needle threader?
Hi - welcome to FixYa. I have this machine, and unfortunately, the cassettes can break. If the threader worked when you first got your machine, I would suggest buying a new cassette (even if your threader is working). A second cassette is very handy because you can thread your next color in the extra cassette before the machine stops for the next color change - when the machine does stop, just put in the second cassette, and thread the other with the next color - speeds things up alot. And, if one of the cassettes does break, you aren't sitting in a puddle waiting for a new one.. You can find the thread cassettes for sale on a variety of sites - this is where I buy mine:
Some of the 270Ds came with a spool pin - look in your manual for a picture and for the instructions for installing and using the spool pin. You can use it for spool of thread that are too large for the cassette and I think you can leave it installed on your machine all the time. If you don't have your manual, leave a comment and I'll look mine and check the instructions.
Hope this helps. If you have a minute, a rating (good or bad) tells me if the information or solution I provide is helpful to anyone who visits FixYa.
If you would like me to write a tip on salvaging an embroidery project that has been pulled into a birdsnest, leave a quick comment and I'll add the tip. Thanks everybody, and good luck. Please feel free to comment if you need more help or have more questions.

some machines have a presser foot sensor or switch which prevents the machine sewing if the foot is not down.
if your presser foot is down and you still cannot sew the switch or switch actuator is most likely damaged. you will require a tech to repair this.

SOURCE: Bobbin won't come up!!!!!
This is going to sound silly, but take out the needle and check that the flat side of the needle is facing the way the instruction books says it's supposed to. Unless the flat side of the needle is facing where it's supposed to for your machine (usually--but not always--to the rear, away from you), the upper thread will not make a loop.
(Cost me $85.00 to figure this one out.)
