Error message on Brother SE-270D sewing machine

I have a Brother SE-270D sewing machine and I keep getting the error message "THE SAFETY DEVICE HAS BEEN ACTICATED"
The machine does not beep at me, just shows that message when I try to sew and will not do anything. I have changed the needle, changed the threads, checked for loose threads and have not been able to find the problem.
Thanks for any help.

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.

The safety device has been activated


Turn off the power supply and open the needle plate.

Remove the bobbin and bobbin case.

Clean the shuttle and surrounding area from any lint or thread that may have accumulated during use.

If the problem continues, the machine will need to be serviced by a Brother dealer.

There's a grinding sound whenever I press the needle position button & the error message "The safety Device have been activated" pops up on the screen


Sounds like the shuttle needs to be cleaned.

Turn off the power and open the needle plate.

Remove the bobbin and bobbin case.

Clean the area from lint and any thread that may be trapped.

Brother SE-350 "The safety device has been activated"


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.

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.
