I am not familiar with the brother safety device myself. however things i would check might be to first check the manual for the machine. if not available try to turn the machine off if it is electronic in hope that it would reset itself. i would also totally unthread the machine and change the needle. embroidery machines need to have needles changed more often due to their high speeds.What type of fabric were you sewing on? Some of the newer machines are just not made to sew on very heavy fabrics and this might be causing something in side to spring. Try to stitch on a lighter fabric with a stabilizer under it

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.

Why does thread gather in bobbin area and jam machine


Completely unthread the top and bobbin threads. Clean any lint build up out of the bobbin race assembly using the little brush and some canned air. Check that the needle is inserted correctly...with the flat side towards the back. Then carefully rethread the top and the bobbin threads. Make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly...if it's backwards the machine won't sew properly.

Messages about safe device activated & press the needle position button


The noise is because the machine is trying to raise or lower a needle and can't move. Several things to check. Did the needle break and jam in the bottom thread? Is the needle bent or jam? Did the thread jam in the bobbin area? I had a 'knot' of thread build up on the bottom and it hooked itself into the metal clip on the bobbin so that the needle couldn't raise. If thread jams in the bottom carefully cut the threads until you can free the hoop and material. Then check to make sure all pieces of thread and fuzz has been removed in the bobbin case. If it happens again check to see if the bobbin case or the throat plate is scratched or bent. If you are stitching Free Standing Lace on this machine or a piece with over 20,000 stitches I recommend starting with a new full bobbin and a new needle. As you get toward the bottom of the bobbin, thread seems to have a high likelihood of tangling or looping.

I have a janome 11000. it jammed while embroidering a project. The underneath was rats nest and my needle bent and gouged up my bobbin case...Replaced the case and now the machine makes a clicking noise...


sometimes when a needle gets bent, it can cause the sewing machine to need a adjustment by a technican.
sometimes a jam can be caused by the thread coming off the thread take up lever
or the bobbin is turned the wrong way in the bobbin case
or the bobbin was not thread correctly

I'm going to suggest something. Take your machine to a friends across town and plug it in. See if you still have this issue.

I've had power problems before that all but killed some electronics. And certainly make you and others think you are crazy... You may need to put a power conditioner between the machine an the wall.

Needle broke while embroidering. I replaced the needle, but now it is jamming and will barely move.


Maybe you have broken threads under the needle plate, Can you lift the needle plate and clean?

Safety Feature engaged Brother 270 D


Push the button to put the needle in the up position. Take the hoop off the unit and chekc everything. Rethread the top thread. Take out the bobbin and remove the bobbin plate (the plate, not just the cover). Check under and around the bobbin shuttle as best as you can for threads and lint. Use the brush to remove any lint clumps. If it still not working I would try switching the machine off. If you leave the item hooped and you didn't adjust your design any with the machine before you started stitching you should be able to put it back correctly. Turn the machine back on and try again, skipping ahead in the design to where you stopped before of course. If it still doesn't work contact Brother customer service.

Sounds like the bobbin tension is loose. Look at this website on their "repair" page where it explains how to adjust the bottom(bobbin) tension.
