Question about Brother SE-270D Computerized Sewing Machine

2 Answers

Fo4--What does it mean and where do I find the translations?

My Brother SE-270D won't sew and the LCD says "F04." I can't find "F04" in the instruciton manual and I have no idea what it means. I can't get the LCD to change, so pressing the buttons around it does nothing. What should I do?

Thank you.

F04 is foot control error. It is probably a bad foot control, but it may be the plug in on the machine or a circuit board.

You can run the machine without a foot control for now; just unplug the foot control from the machine and use the Start/Stop button like you would when embroidering.

Before replacing the foot control, you should bring the machine to a Brother shop and try a new control. If the new one works, then the control was the problem.

My machine shows FO4 message and none of the buttons are working for this message.


There are 2 things that cause the F04 error.
1 - Wrong foot control: If you have 2 machines, you might have them mixed up between machines.
2 - Burned out foot control.

Bring the machine to a Brother shop; try the new foot control on your machine before you buy it.

Error message on Brother SE-270D sewing machine


The safety device will activate if the machine has a bind or is unable to run at correct speed. If you turn the handwheel is it tight/hard to turn? if it is than thats it. Now what is binding the machine has to be diagnosed.
