Question about Brother SE-270D Computerized Sewing Machine

Open Question

My Brother SE 270D has an F06 error message. Someone on here said it needed to be "reset" by pressing 2 buttons and the ON button but didn't say which 2 buttons. Is this correct? If so, which 2 buttons? If not, how do I fix this error?

    EDIT: There was an internal connector lose. I opened up the machine and saw that a connector was disconnected from one of the boards inside. After I reattached it, the error was gone.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: "Lower presser foot" error on SE 270D

I had the same problem and after playing around with it I lifted the cover of the thread cassette and pushed down on the cassette until it snapped. Don't ask me why but it fixed the Lower Presser Foot error and I was able to sew. Hope this helps.

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.

My machine shows FO4 message and none of the buttons are working for this message.


There are 2 things that cause the F04 error.
1 - Wrong foot control: If you have 2 machines, you might have them mixed up between machines.
2 - Burned out foot control.

Bring the machine to a Brother shop; try the new foot control on your machine before you buy it.

The part number is XC7290051
Alternative Part Numbers Include XC6651321, XC6651221, XC6651121, XA3931051, XC1154051 & XC6651051

When I press and hold the reverse button, the machine stitches in place and will not back stitch. What do I need to do differently?

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.

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.

Presser foot lever


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls try a reset. This could be accomplish by unplugging the SE-270D from the mains. After an extended period, plug back in and power on normally. In some variations, there would be a reset button/key/switch.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Fo4--What does it mean and where do I find the translations?


F04 is foot control error. It is probably a bad foot control, but it may be the plug in on the machine or a circuit board.

You can run the machine without a foot control for now; just unplug the foot control from the machine and use the Start/Stop button like you would when embroidering.

Before replacing the foot control, you should bring the machine to a Brother shop and try a new control. If the new one works, then the control was the problem.

Brother SE-270D dispaly just F06 in LCD Panel


Contact Brother
http://www.brother-usa.com/homesewing/

To the left on the above site is a software download page.

If you need further help.. email brother...they will tell you how to fix this. Takes them a day or so to answer.

Sounds like the technician may have put in a wrong fuse himself. Hoping it was a Brother authorized dealer.
