If you can, try to remove the needleplate and the bobbin case from the machine. Once the bobbin case is removed, the needle should be free.

When i push my foot pedal on my Brother SE 400 machine shakes and goes into safe mode


TRY TO REMOVE YOUR BOBBIN CARRIER AND NEEDLE AND SEE IF THE MACHINE WILL MOVE SMOOTHLY WITHOUT THEM. IF IT IS RUNNING SMOOTHLY YOU KNOW YOUR PROBLEM IS THE BOBBIN CARRIER OR NEEDLE. YOU MUST HAVE THE RIGHT SIZE BOBBIN. ONCE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT BOBBIN YOU CAN PLACE ONE DROP OF OIL ON THE RACE (LITTLE TRACK UNDER BOBBIN CARRIER) AND PUT THE CARRIER IN. WITH YOUR HAND TURN THE HAND WHEEL TO SEE IF IT IS INSERTED PROPERLY SO IT ROTATES SMOOTHLY. THEY'RE IS A PLACE THAT KEEPS THE CARRIER FROM MOVING. YOU MUST BE CAREFUL TO LEAVE IT LOOSE SO THREAD CAN GO UNDER IT. IF IT IS STILL MOVING SMOOTH WITH YOUR HAND YOU CAN TRY THE PEDAL. IT SHOULD WORK. NOW, REPLACE THE BOBBIN MAKING SURE IT IS ROTATING THE RIGHT DIRECTION. I CAN'T STRESS ENOUGH TO MAKE SURE THE BOBBIN IS THE RIGHT SIZE. IF THIS IS OK THEN REPLACE YOUR NEEDLE. THE NEXT STEP IS TO GO TO YOUR REPAIRMAN IF IT IS STILL A PROBLEM.

Brother PE770 Hoop size programming stuck on small hoop option


Your machine would be able to perform 5 X 8 embroideries. The hoop size on this machine is recognized by the machine itself, depending of the embroidery file size. So it the embroidery is small, it will indicate that the small hoop is needed.

But U can use the large hoop, position the embroidery where U want then perform another embroidery on the sams hoop.

TRICK : the embroidery size exceeds the hoop? reduce it in X and or Y using this function on the machine

I have a Brother Ult 2001 and I was right in the middle of monogramming a towel using the large frame when I ran out of bobbin. I took the frame out and changed the bobbin and when I returned the frame to...


My friend just had this problem a couple weeks ago. Here's what we did. We cleaned the bobbin case with canned air lightly. We turned the machine off and disconnected the embroidery unit. Turned the machine on without the embroidery unit and ran a straight stitch. Then we turned it off, reattached the embroidery unit and touched another design of a different size. Attached the hoop without fabric just to see if it would "take it" and it did so we put the right size hoop back on and selected the design we were on originally and it worked. Some times these machines are just "touchy" and don't let you do something and after a "rest" they're ok. I hope this works for you.

My Brother SE270D keeps jamming up and getting thread all tangled up The feed is not advancing either.


Make sure you are using 60 weight bobbin thread only in the bobbin, also make sure you are using only SA156 ( SFB-XA5539-151) bobbins, the size 156A are not for this machine. I have used Singer size 15J bobbins with no problem. The bobbin should have slightly rounded ends, not flat like a regular bobbin. This helps the thread over the bobbin at high speeds.

I threw my machine out of time the first three times I used it for embroidery and decorative stitches. Had I read the manual, I'd have known to use 60 wt bobbin thread. I have also used 90 wt with no problems...60 wt is what comes with the machine.

If you have to take the machine in for service, make sure to take sample of the problem and the embroidery unit, thread you used, etc. Take it all and tell them to test it all.

My Brother dealer felt these Disney machines were great little workers..and said they are not hard to repair...some dealers don't know enough about how to repair the thread cartridge, so tell you the machine is not worth repairing. It is...I've had mine for 4 years.

Hope this helps some. You may have to take the machine in to be timed / cleaned...once that's done and you are using proper thread and bobbins (upper thread - you can use any, bobbin it's 60wt)...you will love your machine.

Machine embroidery


You should always use proper Bobbin Thread for embroidery - not a bobbin wound from regular dressmaking thread. You are right, the special bobbin thread is thinner so that the embroidery thread will be pulled to the underside and you get a nice shiny embroidery on top with no bobbin showing through. Wind yourself 6 or more bobbins at a time of bobbin thread to always have some on hand, or buy the pre-wound L size ones.
All embroidery machines - no matter what brand - recommend using bobbin thread for embroidery. It is readily available at all sewing stores, probably even Spotlight would carry some. If you get stuck for a supply, try overlocker thread.
