I know this isnt of much help but my manual says that any errors starting with F is a sign of malfunctioning and should be taken in to a service center. Wish I could help more.

    Before taking it in for repair try unplugging your foot pedal and see if the error is gone when you turn it back on without the foot pedal plugged in. if the error is gone then you have a bad foot pedal which needs repaired or replaced. This works with the NX400,450; But I am not sure with the other models. Sure is an easy way to find out a simple repair before spending a lot of money.

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.

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

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.
