It most likely is your foot pedal. Unplug your foot pedal and start the machine without it. If it works properly without the foot pedal plugged in then your foot pedal needs repaired or replaced. This worked for us with the NX400 machine and I am sure the NX450 is closely similar. Don't bother to buy a Manual if you didn't already get one with the machine. A Service manual and parts manual is best; But just so you know they don't show the error codes unless you are a qualified and authorized repair person for the machines. I got my info from the repair man where my wife buys and repairs her machines. I am an electronic technician and mechanic so I understand how this system works. I will be repairing my wife's machines from now on.

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.

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 NX-400. Never used. Error F04. I've looked for a model # for the foot for NX-400 to no avail. The foot that came in the box is Model T/FC-322. I can't help but think this is the wrong foot.


If you mean the foot controller, then the T/FC-322 is a substitute that should work. It's listed as a replacement here: http://www.sewingmachinesplus.com/234522001.php . The manual for the NX400 gives the foot controller as XC1154-051 . Brother changes the part number often but the wiring remains the same. Another substitute controller is available here: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/foot-control-w-cord-brother-xc6651121.aspx .

The F04 message may mean there is an internal failure. This probably needs to be fixed by a Brother authorized repair person.

I wish that I had better news for you.

the receiving plug would have something wrong with the pins in it or the foot pedal plug could have something wrong with the pins in it,, it would be better to have a sewing technican look at the machine.. don't use wd 40 on the plug

Nx400 error message F04?


I had the problem with the error code F04 and found out that it is your foot pedal for the machine. Unplug it and it should start right up as ours did.You will need to fix or buy a new foot pedal. When they repair and or clean your machine they don't use your foot pedal but they use their own so they will miss the broken foot pedal.

I hope this helps you.

My new nx 450 says f04 on the screen when I plug it in and nothing functions. How do I fix this?


Did you check the manual? In the back it will outline what the number/code stands for. Do you have it in twin needle mode? If you don't have a manual, try going to the brother website to read the manual. You can go to my website www.112sewing.com and click on machines and it will take you right to brother. good luck

I have a Brother Innovis 600 sewing machine. When I turn it on it has a F04 error code. Can anyone help me with this??


I know this isnt of much help but my manual says that any errors starting with F is a sign of malfunctioning and should be taken in to a service center. Wish I could help more.

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.
