2. Notes on safety
DANGER
Wait at least 5 minutes after turning off the power switch and disconnecting the power cord from the wall outlet before
opening the face plate of the control box. Touching areas where high voltages are present can result in severe injury.
CAUTION
Environmental requirements
Use the sewing machine in an area which is free from
sources of strong electrical noise such as highfrequency welders.
Sources of strong electrical noise may cause problems with correct operation.
Any fluctuations in the power supply voltage should
be within ±10% of the rated voltage for the machine.
Voltage fluctuations which are greater than this may
cause problems with correct operation.
The power supply capacity should be greater than the
requirements for the sewing machine’s electrical
consumption.
Insufficient power supply capacity may cause problems with correct operation.
The ambient temperature should be within the range
of 5°C to 35°C during use.
Temperatures which are lower or higher than this may
cause problems with correct operation.
The relative humidity should be within the range of 45%
to 85% during use, and no dew formation should occur
in any devices.
Excessively dry or humid environments and dew formation may cause problems with correct operation.
Avoid exposure to direct sunlight during use.
Exposure to direct sunlight may cause problems with
correct operation.
In the event of an electrical storm, turn off the power
and disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet.
Lightning may cause problems with correct operation.
Installation
Machine installation should only be carried out by a
qualified technician.
Contact your Brother dealer or a qualified electrician
for any electrical work that may need to be done.
All cords should be secured at least 25 mm away from
any moving parts. Furthermore, do not excessively
bend the cords or secure them too firmly with staples,
otherwise there is the danger that fire or electric shocks
could occur.
The sewing machine weighs more than 52 kg. The
installation should be carried out by two or more people.
Install the belt covers to the machine head and motor.
Do not connect the power cord until installation is
complete, otherwise the machine may operate if the
foot switch is depressed by mistake, which could result
in injury.
If using a work table which has casters, the casters
should be secured in such a way so that they cannot
move.
Hold the machine head with both hands when tilting it
back or returning it to its original position.
Furthmore, after tilring back the machine head, do not
push the face plate side or the pulley side from above,
as this could cause the machine head to topple over,
which may result in personal injury or damage to the
machine.
Be sure to connect the ground. If the ground connection is not secure, you run a high risk of receiving a
serious electric shock, and problems with correct
operation may also occur.
Be sure to wear protective goggles and gloves when
handling the lubricating oil and grease, so that they do
not get into your eyes or onto your skin, otherwise inflammation can result.
Furthermore, do not drink the oil or eat the grease under any circumstances, as they can cause vomiting
and diarrhoea.
Keep the oil out of the reach of children.

3. INSTALLATION
CAUTION
Machine installation should only be carried
out by a qualified technician.
All cords should be secured at least 25 mm
away from any moving parts. Furthermore,
do not excessively bend the cable or secure it too firmly staples, otherwise there is
the danger that fire or electric shocks could
occur.
Contact your Brother dealer or a qualified
electrician for any electrical work that may
need to be done.
The sewing machine head weighs more than
52 kg. The installation should be carried out
by two or more people.
Be sure to connect the ground. If the ground
connection is not secure, you run the risk
of receiving a serious electric shock, and
problems with correct operation may also
occur.
Do not connect the power cord until installation is complete, otherwise the machine may
operate if the foot switch is depressed by mistake, which could result in injury.
Install the belt covers to the machine head
and motor.
Hold the machine head with both hands when
tilting it back or returning it to its original position. Furthermore, after tilting back the machine head, do not push the face plate side
or the pulley side from above, as this could
cause the machine head to topple over, which
may result in personal injury or damage to
the machine.

CAUTION
Turn off the power switch before starting lubricating, otherwise the machine may operate if the
foot switch is depressed by mistake, which could result in injury.
Be sure to wear protective goggles and gloves when handling the lubricating oil and grease, so
that they do not get into your eyes or onto your skin, otherwise inflammation can result.
Furthermore, do not drink the oil or eat the grease under any circumstances, as they can cause
vomiting and diarrhoea.
Keep the oil out of the reach of children.
NOTE 1: Fill the machine with oil when the oil level is down to about one-third full in the oil sight glass.
If oil is not added and the oil drops below this level, there is the danger that the machine may seize during
operation.
NOTE 2: Be sure to let the machine operate for a while after adding the oil.
NOTE 3: If there is no more oil on the felt of the shuttle race base, problems with sewing may result, so add oil to the felt
until it is slightly soaked.
NOTE 4: Use only specified Brother oil (Nisseki Sewing Libe 10) for the machine oil.
