E1 error brother ce 4000


Hi.
You can get the E1 error if the presser foot is not down. If you use the walking foot attachment it can keep the foot from coming all the way down.

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 needle is skipping stitches in every position, how do I correct this issue?


Skipped stitches

1. The needle is not inserted correctly

Remove needle & reinsert needle( flat side towards the back of machine)

2. The needle is damaged

replace with new needle

3. The wrong size needle is being used

Choose a needle to suit the thread & fabric

4. The foot not attached correctly

Check & attach correctly

E1 flashes on the message window of my brother sewing machine


Brother Computer Codes
  • E1: Make sure the presser foot is lowered before sewing.
    E2: You chose a stitch other than a buttonhole stitch or a bar tack stitch and you tried to sew with the buttonhole lever in the lowered position. Raise the buttonhole lever.
    E3: If you selected the buttonhole or tack bar stitch and start to sew with the buttonhole lever raised, you will get the E3 code. Lower the buttonhole lever.
    E4: You hit the reverse button while the bobbin winder shaft was moved over to the right. Move the bobbin winder shaft to the left.
    E5: On automatic sewing machines, the start/stop button was pressed while the foot controller was plugged in. Unplug the foot controller if you are using the automatic function.
    E6: This code tells you that the motor locked up because the thread is tangled. Untangle the thread, make sure the machine is threaded properly and that the proper tension is set before continuing.

I am getting error message E4 when foot pedal is plugged in. Unplug the foot pedal and the machine goes back to normal with the exception that you really can't sew without the foot pedal.


Your reverse reinforcement stitch button was pushed or needle position was pushed while bobbin winder was moved to the right. You can download a free manual brother-usa.com and you will see all of the troubleshooting and error messages there

I have a brother ce4000. I am getting an e1 message every time I push the pedal. I have the foot in the down position. I have sewed something heavy and the automatic stop mechanism has been tripped. How do...


Page 62 of the manual does not have any reference to E1 requiring a re-set.

E5 does state to unplug the foot control and use the start-stop button. This might work as a re-set.
