I have the same problem! I also have the same problem with the ULT2001. The SE270D is a class A bobbin if I'm not mistaken. I've tried ALL kinds of bobbins and did not repair the problem. I stopped embroidering w/it for a while and only used it for sewing. It started embroidering ok for now. As far as oiling - I researched this last week when the motor locked up. You should be keeping the bobbin area (pop the plates under the sewing foot off) and make sure you don't have lint building up there. But the best I found, DON'T OIL. I couldn't find anything anywhere that would tell me where to put oil. What I did find was that you should take your machine in to be serviced about every 300-500 hours of use.

I cannotl get my 270 D to even sew, it will not pick up the bobbin thread and do a thing. I have yet to sew the machine. donna


Picking up the bobbin thread has to be done by manually. Turn off the machine, open the bobbin door, lift the presser foot, hold the end of the upper thread and slowly turn the side wheel till the needle enters the bobbin race and on the way up it will catch the bobbin thread. Pull the upper thread till you lift the bobbin thread too. Put both threads to the back of the machine, close the bobbin door and you should be able to sew.

WHat is wrong when the thread is pileing up on the botom side of fabric and it stalls during sewing? It is the main thread and not the bobbin thread, I changed colors so I could tell what tread was...


Check the bobbin tension and that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder.

I'm new to embroidering. I have BrotherSE-270 Disney. I have read through the manuel several times and am confused about the bobbin thread. Do I use tread specficaly for embrodering or will regular thread...


Your machine probably came with brother embroidery bobbin thread (one spool, white)...I used it until it was gone and did buy more embroidery bobbin thread at a regular superstore (it wasn't brother brand though)...however, I have since used regular thread and not had problems. HOWEVER, be sure it is good, quality thread - none of that $.50/spool stuff. That knots up and simply doesn't look good if it does work. Good luck!

I have a brother SE 270-d. my only problem is that while embroidering, the bobbin thread is showing through the design on the top. I have tried adjusting the top thread tension but no matter how I adjust...


Try making the material tighter in the hoop and check your bobbin to be sure it's a L (look at your instruction manual...it will show you which bobbin works and which does not. I say this because you have a tension problem...dont we all, Ha Ha!

Thread tangles under throat plate while embroidering


Could the little hook that is stuck over the bobbin area be the thread cutter? My thread cutter gets stuck there and I have to turn my machine off and then try to use the cutter to reset it to its "resting" position.

and it worked when i bought singer brand bobbins

the heat must have shrank my first ones (like a shrinky dink )

your mileage may very

Adjusting Bobbin Tension


I looked forever to find this darn green bobbin screw. Around the opening for your bobbin is a plastic cover. If you slide it forward it will pop right off. Once you remove this, the bobbin case will lift right out. On the front you will see your green screw for adjusting your bobbin tension.
