Question about Brother Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Brother 2001 sewing and embroidery machine.

I have a brother 2001 sewing and embroidery machine, that locked up after the warning the safety device was activated. Shutting the machine off did not deactivate the machine it is still frozen. I did clear the thread off that tangled at the loop on top. The shaft on top is movable but stiff. The bobbin area is also stiff. Is there some way to cancel the safety device?
The machine was sewing beautifully til the thread wrapped on the joint just below the upperloop

The fact that your machine is turning hard says you still have some thread inside the machine that is binding up and activating the safety device. It must turn easily before it will work properly again.
Sometimes the machine must be disassembled to remove these threads.

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.

I need a manual for my older sewing/embroidery machine, Baby Lock Esante ESL.


Yes, you are correct. Baby Lock brands Brother machines under their name with a special agreement between the two companies. Therefore the Brother manual would be helpful.

At start up machine says press needle position button. All that happens is the motor revs up then says safety feature has been activated. Any ideas?


I used this machine in my middle school classroom. That message was in the first start up of the machine, I think it just resets the machine. The larger model also has a beginning reset button that just adjusts the arm of the machine. Is the machine working fine after the reset? Hopefully "sew"

Need embroidery foot for Brothers Ult2001


Most sewing machine stores that have Brother machines will probably have the embroidery foot. Ask for part XA5500-001. It's available online here for $22: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/screw-in-embroidery-foot-brother-xa5500001.aspx . Amazon.com also has the embroidery foot: http://www.amazon.com/Screw-Embroidery-Foot-XA5500001-Brother/dp/B0038RAVXI .

I hope this helps.
