    I absolutely love this machine! I was missing the button setting foot, but no worries! overstock is refunding $** dollars to buy one, but I will prob use the cash for something else, since hand sewing buttons is so darn easy! I have tested all of the functions except downloads but so far so good! I can embroider my husband's work clothes which will allow him to deduct the cost of his clothes for his business, that will prob pay for the cost of my refurb machine. which by the way, seems to be a brand new machine. I am ecstatically happy with my purchase! plan to make lots of clothes for my grandbabies and even for myself!

  • Should have known better

    This refurbished machine most have slipped by quality control. Some kind unknown substance on bobbin plate. Under the bobbin plate was a lot of flint, looked like it wasn't even checked. Did not have the double needle pack. The power cord would not stay in the machine, slipped out. That's as far as I was willing to go before retuning it.

  • This is a workhorse of a machine!

    I love this machine! I have owned a Viking, a Singer and a Bernina. This machine out sews them all. The new way the automatic threader works is amazing. The up-down button and the thread cutter button are just a few of the perks installed on this machine. The bobbin is almost jam proof and the bobbin winder is really easy to do. When I was looking for this machine I went on line and asked the question "What is the best sewing machine in America for the money?" This was the answer. The Brother SE400 is the best machine for the money. I am so glad I took their word for it.

  • Great machine

    I was hesitant on purchasing a reconditioned machine, but I have had no problems with mine and it looks and works like new. This machine is easy to use and has a lot of great features. I have never sewn before and was very pleased with the simplicty of using this machine. My mother who does have sewing experience said she wants to replace hers with this one! Very happy with my purchase!

  • Purchased from the UK.....

    I have been searching for an embroidery machine for quite some time, but I noticed that they were all very expensive and there was nothing of good quality in my price range. I came across the Brother SE-400 and knew it was exactly what I had been looking for, however I could not find this machine available in the UK. I emailed brother to see if they stocked this machine in the UK and they confirmed that they didn't but that they had another model which is extremely simular (but it cost £750+). I was very hesitant on purchasing the refurbished Brother SE-400 from the states, however after reading all of the wonderful reviews on Overstock, I decided to go ahead with the purchase. The item arrived in approx 7 days, which was well before it's expected delivery date. It was well packaged and on opening, the machine looks like new! The only hint that this machine is re-conditioned is that the bag containing the manual and accessories was a little bit damaged, but I have replaced this with a folder to keep the manuals safe. One of my concerns was that I have heard from friends that they have had to pay extra tax/handling fees when having items imported from the US, however with Overstock, all shipping fees, import fees and tax was included in the shipping and handling fees, so there was no worrying about any extra charges. So far I have only tested the machine (will be spending this weekend practising embroidering) but the machine works like a dream, I have not used a sewing machine for a couple of years, however I found the Brother SE-400 was very easy to set up, the manual talks you through everything and I never knew how much I would appreciate the Auto-threader. If you are considering whether to purchase an Embroidery Machine, I would definitely recommend the Brother Se-400 to all.

  • Unit did not have all the parts

    The unit arrived 6-8 days after purchasing it. I opened it right away to inspect the contents. The machine itself was in good condition; minor scratches and the owner’s manual had alot of writing and folded over pages showing heavy use. I noticed that 5 of the main parts were missing from the package and called overstock support. The assured me that they will send out the missing parts ASAP. 5 weeks went by and still no parts... I called again to ask for the parts to be overnighted to me, they said that they would mail them to me but would not be able to send overnight. Another week goes by and a package arrives... Every part but the ones that were missing from the original package were in the new package!!! I have since purchased the missing parts from a brother authorized retailer and have tested the machine. The machine works as stated. UPDATE: Overstock have extended an apology to me with regards the parts issue and have reimbursed me for the cost of the parts that I had to get from another retailer. Because of this I would now put the purchase at a 3 star rating.

  • Love it!

    I ordered this machine about a month ago and I have stopped sewing! I have even embroidered some of the items I have sewn and every one is amazed I did that on MY sewing machine. I love the emroidery so much I just downloaded an some new patterns for Christmas. I am a beginning sewer but at this rate and with this machine I'll be an expert soon! I have had two other machines by another maker and neither compares to this one. Why didn't I buy a Brother before?

  • Can larger hoops be purchased to work with this machine or is a 4 x 4 the largest that it will accommodate?

    Guidelines
    • Found the answer myself. Thanks though. Here is the answer I got in case anyone else wants to know. NOTE: This hoop does not allow you to stitch designs larger than 4×4 inches at one time, because the maximum embroidery frame area is a physical limitation of the Brother 400 embroidery unit and can’t be increased by the hoop. To stitch larger designs, you either have to split it with software, or combine smaller designs manually. It it a multi-position hoop that allows you to stitch them without rehooping.
