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.

My 500D hadthe fault the safety device has been activated. It made an awful grinding noise just before and then the warning came up, now the needle won't move and the hand wheel doesn't turn.


If the safety device has been activated, something is seriously wrong with your machine that could be a hazard. Take it for service.

Error message "the safety device has been activated. Is the thread tangled? Is the needle bent?" Occurred after needle no 5 broke and fell out. The machine


If the safety has been activated, there is something wrong with the machine that could potentially be dangerous--to the machine or you. You should probably take it to a technician.

Safety device has been activated and dont see anything wrong


First thing, install a brand new needle.

Next, remove all the thread. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning making sure it follows the correct pathway.

Rethread the bobbin case making sure the thread is in the bobbin tension and that the bobbin turns the correct direction in the bobbin case.

Clean away any thread and lint debris around and under the feed dogs and in the bobbin area.

Oil the machine with fresh, good quality sewing machine oil as instructed in the owner's manual. Do NOT use 3-in-1, WD-40, cooking oil, or the old smelly stuff in the oil tin from Grandma's sewing basket.

Turn the machine off for a few minutes and then turn it back on.

If it still has an error code, you should probably take it for service.

remove the embroidery unit, change the needle and check again in the bobbin case for tangled thread. Same problem here and this is the way I've fixed it

Messages about safe device activated & press the needle position button


The noise is because the machine is trying to raise or lower a needle and can't move. Several things to check. Did the needle break and jam in the bottom thread? Is the needle bent or jam? Did the thread jam in the bobbin area? I had a 'knot' of thread build up on the bottom and it hooked itself into the metal clip on the bobbin so that the needle couldn't raise. If thread jams in the bottom carefully cut the threads until you can free the hoop and material. Then check to make sure all pieces of thread and fuzz has been removed in the bobbin case. If it happens again check to see if the bobbin case or the throat plate is scratched or bent. If you are stitching Free Standing Lace on this machine or a piece with over 20,000 stitches I recommend starting with a new full bobbin and a new needle. As you get toward the bottom of the bobbin, thread seems to have a high likelihood of tangling or looping.

Brother 2001 sewing and embroidery machine.


The fact that your machine is turning hard says you still have some thread inside the machine that is binding up and activating the safety device. It must turn easily before it will work properly again.
Sometimes the machine must be disassembled to remove these threads.
