Flip your bobbin

when I hold my bobbib in my right hand and pull the thread with my left hand the bobbin spins counter clockwise, this is how i put it in the machine

Do you wind your own bobbins if so make sure you wind evenly

I order a box of 100 pre wound bobbins from Brother

I have a Brother Se 270D sewing/embroidery machine. It makes a terrible grinding sound and won't go all the way up or down. I have removed the thread, bobbin, and bobbin case and cleaned all of...


Take it in for service, hopefully it is still under warranty, I have sneaking suspician that your motor is causing the problem. I had a machine that did that and it turned out to be the motor.

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.

I'm new to embroidering. I have BrotherSE-270 Disney. I have read through the manuel several times and am confused about the bobbin thread. Do I use tread specficaly for embrodering or will regular thread...


Your machine probably came with brother embroidery bobbin thread (one spool, white)...I used it until it was gone and did buy more embroidery bobbin thread at a regular superstore (it wasn't brother brand though)...however, I have since used regular thread and not had problems. HOWEVER, be sure it is good, quality thread - none of that $.50/spool stuff. That knots up and simply doesn't look good if it does work. Good luck!

Bobbin thread comes out on top


You need to read the section of your manual that talks about thread tension. That occurs when your thread tension is off.

Instrucitnos for Brother SE-270D Timing Problem


This is not really something you can do yourself (been there, tried that!). The machine has to be almost completely disassembled to get to the timing mechanism. Trust me, it's worth the 30.00 to have it timed.
I think http://www.allbrands.com has a generic timing explaination for sewing machines (use the drop in bobbin one)...I found it easy to follow...but once I realized I had to unplug all the components for the computerized functions... I took it in to the dealer. If you contact Brother & your machine is under warranty, they will pay for the repair (they paid for my first two re-timings). Now I know you HAVE to use BOBBIN thread that is 60 WT only in the bobbin. You will continue to have problems if you don't. Also, this machine uses the class 15 bobbin, but make sure its model number SA156A, which is a hair taller than the SA156 bobbin..both are class 15, but the tiny difference is very important.

Embroidery Problem with my disney


Check your bobbin case. Thread the bobbin through your bobbin case while holding it in your left hand. Pull the thread with your right hand and feel if there is any resistance. If not, you need to adjust the tension on the bobbincase. Also check if a piece of thread or fluff did not get stuck between the tension blades on the bobbin case. If you are not sure how to adjust the tension on the bobbin case, ask your dealer to do it.

Brother SE-270D Jams below needle plate


Comment by margecam52, posted on Aug 12, 2008 It's the bobbin thread. Also, it does not have to be Brother brand. Any 60wt thread will work. I get mine at http://www.threadart.com
They have it on large cones, and I use a cone holder to fill my bobbins. I have not had a single problem since. I like this thread because it has a sheen to it. I also have a longarm quilting machine & I use this bobbin thread 95% of the time. Also, be sure to check the bobbin area (remove the plastic & the metal plates) for lint buildup... I have a small, soft artists paint brush that I use to remove the lint build up with. I check after every embroidery run.
And for the thread not coming through...mine does it when I change thickness of threads. There is an adjustment wheel on the front of the machine, I turn that...seems to make the difference...not even sure that is what it's for...but it works for me.
