You will have to write a portion of the scripture that fits in the hooped area then rehoop the piece and contine on. Try this on scrap first as re hooping can be tricky to line up if you have not done it before. A hint is to mark where your hoop is at first with a water soluable markerthen line up with these marks. Another might be to see if there is a larger hoop for your machine.

I have a Bro PE 400 D. The feed dogs do not seem to be pulling the fabric through without me pulling on it. Stitches are very small even when put on a longer stitch. Embroidery Unit works fine.

check the feed dogs under the needle plate to see if there up or down
if there down then the feed dog switch need to be moved to the up position
but if there up,,,then the machine needs to be serviced so the feed dogs & stitches can be checked

Using a single simple 3116. need to know how to replace the needle and what to do with a needle that fell through the plate

Take your bobbin case out and clean area with a brush, make sure that all of the needle is out of that area. Your manual will show you how to replace the needle. If, you cannot find your manual go to and under the customer support tab, click instruction manual, and enter 3116. You can download your manual for free and then you can enlarge the diagrams to see your bobbin case area. Good luck, any more questions, write back

When I push the button to sew, I get a message stating that the safety has been acitivated. There is no thread tangled and the needle is not bent.

try turning the handle toward you if it won't move then it is more than likely the bobbin case is in wrong take the bobbin case out and try turning the hand wheel toward you if it works simply replace the bobbin case back into the hook area correctly and that should fix the problem

I have a brother sewing machine but all the patterns come out with the bobbin thread showing

When you pull gently on the thread from the bobbin area, do you feel slight resistance? There should be resistance but it should not be tight. If the bobbin thread is in the bobbin case tension area properly and there is no resistance then you need to tighten the screw on the bobbin case to increase the tension on the thread. Do not tighten the top thread tension. To get to the bobbin tension screw on the case, some models require that you remove the needle plate and then the bobbin case. Some have a hole in the front housing that allows you to reach the screw without taking off the needle plate. Also make sure you're hooping the fabric tightly. When you snap the fabric when it's hooped, it should make a drum like sound. If the fabric is loose in the hoop, bad stitching will result

The bottom thread is clumping up and the fabric isn't feeding through smoothly

Clean area where bobbin is. use a small clean paint brush and then if that doesn't work try making small adjustments with upper tension

I have an brother 8200 embroidery machine and when i turn it on it says the pressure foot is in the down position and it isn't. i have to jiggle it and sometimes that works but today it took a long time...

If you take the face plate off (left side cover) there is usually a small sensor "lever" that is activated when you raise or lower the presser foot. This could be bad or broken. Many models had plastic then they switched to a metal lever. I think this could be it.

Error when trying to write to programmable card

It could be that the card can no longer be written. Sometimes they may just stop working.
If you have a dealer in the area, request that they try to write to your card and you will know if the problem is in your hardware or settings if they are able to.
