Witnesses in the Netherlands heard one or two explosions after the Boeing 747 cargo plane took off in Maastricht heading to New York.
Boeing has said operations of all 777s powered by Pratt & Whitney engines should be suspended until the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) finds an appropriate protocol for inspections.
Pratt & Whitney said it had dispatched a team to work with investigators.
The engine failure is the another blow for Boeing after its 737 Max aircraft was grounded for 18 months following two aviation accidents that left 346 people dead.
