This is not really something you can do yourself (been there, tried that!). The machine has to be almost completely disassembled to get to the timing mechanism. Trust me, it's worth the 30.00 to have it timed.
I think http://www.allbrands.com has a generic timing explaination for sewing machines (use the drop in bobbin one)...I found it easy to follow...but once I realized I had to unplug all the components for the computerized functions... I took it in to the dealer. If you contact Brother & your machine is under warranty, they will pay for the repair (they paid for my first two re-timings). Now I know you HAVE to use BOBBIN thread that is 60 WT only in the bobbin. You will continue to have problems if you don't. Also, this machine uses the class 15 bobbin, but make sure its model number SA156A, which is a hair taller than the SA156 bobbin..both are class 15, but the tiny difference is very important.

Take it in for service, hopefully it is still under warranty, I have sneaking suspician that your motor is causing the problem. I had a machine that did that and it turned out to be the motor.

If the timing is off is needs an authorized repairman to fix it with metric tools. Not a repair that can be done at home. Usually costs between $50-150 depending on your area.

I need a replacement needle to embroidery. need to know the model#. I have a Brother SE-270D Easy Thread Cassette System.


The thread cassette has no bearing on what needle you use. You need a Schmetz embroidery needle with the red band size 75 for light to medium weight fabrics or a size 90 for heavier fabrics such as denim.

Brother SE-270D - need timing instructions


If your machine bunch up the tread, it has nothing to do with timing. In 90% of the cases the problem lies with the top thread. Check your tension disks for any fluff or thread. Also check that you thread the machine correctly. The best way to check the tension is to thread the machine normally with the presser foot up. when you get to the stage of the threading the needle, first lower the presser the presser foot and check the tension by pulling the thread slowly with your right hand and adjust the tension with your left hand. On zero you should be able to pull freely and on 5 there should be enough resistance. If this is the case your machine should sew perfectly.
Hope this help
