When you get that error message it usally means there is a jam in the machine that is causing the motor to work to hard so it keeps you from burning up the motor try taking your needle plate off and bobbin case out and then put your needle plate back on and then the bobbin case if that doesnt work try looking at the take-up lever there might be thread wraped around it soaking up the oil and causing a bind

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.

I have the same problem, I have done what the book says but no luck yet. Have you figured out what happened? And do the experts really check the questions? Cause I asked a question awhile ago, and no answers. Help!
