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.

I have an error E4 on my Singer Sewing Machine. I have searched the manual and cannot find anything on this error. I have only used my machine a few times. It is brand new.


if it's still under warrenty I suggest taking the machine back.
try changing the needle
try turning the bobbin the opposite direction
if you have a front or side loading bobbin case try reinserting
the bobbin case back in the machine
or it could be the motherboard has gone bad, or the foot pedal

I get a E4 code whan I turn on machine and I can't figure out what is wrong.


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.

Foot pedal error


Yep same thing .....the thing is possessed started running by itself when I was at the iron. Dealer said never heard of such a thing and acted like it was me. Also will not stop sewing when take foot off pedal. Dealer charged me $95 to clean machine and said nothing wrong with foot pedal. Ugh. Has anyone replaced foot pedal and found the problem to stop properly?

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.

What is err code F04


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.

I checked out my machine and everything seems to be intact. The machine is plugged in the machine's light is on but it's not getting any power from the foot pedal. I don't know what to do. Please...


Hi,
If foot pedal alows you to control the speed of the machine. They do go bad occasionally. If your machine motor plugs into the foot pedal unplug it and try it in a wall outlet if able. This will tel you if the machine motor is good or bad. Plug a lamp with a regular bulb(incandesent not flourescent) into the foot pedal. As you press the pedal the bulb should get brighter. This will tell you if the pedal control is good. Be sure the lamp is in the on position

There is power to the foot control but not to the machine to make it sew

Presser foot down, but still get error "E1"


I had the same problem. It started after I took the cover off to fix something else. After I screwed the cover back on, I kept getting the E1 message even when the foot was already down. I took the cover off again, and I found that there is a metal tab at the top left of the front cover, that is pushed by a metal tab in the back that moves when you put the presser foot up or down. You can see this metal tab moving in the back if you put the foot up and down with the cover off. Just putting the foot down(I think) before putting the cover back on fixed it so one metal tab is on the correct side of the other metal tab.
