Yes, you have to remove the walking foot, the threading mechanism does not have electronic recognition of different feet so when you add a foot that has a different fitting you will have to remove it to self thread.

SOURCE: How do I fix thumping/clunking sound?

make sure your needle is facing the right way, some needles if you look at the front and back you will see a groove side and a flat side sometimes it is hard to tell the difference depending on needle style.. hold it up to light and look at it from the side the difference will be slight but you will see a difference groove should face the back or if your presser foot is out of wack (lol so technical terminology) it could cause needle breaks and noise you can detect damage to the presser foot if this is happening.... only other thing i can suggest is to make sure bobbin is securely snapped into the housing if not it can cause problems with the needle picking up the bobbin

Machine making load noise after stop sewing, what is that?


We all know that proper threading makes for happy sewing machines and happy stitchers. And while we emphasize threading with your presser foot up- there are a few other things to keep in mind while threading your machine to make sure your sewing time is happy time!
Have you ever been sewing along on a project, decided to change threads, and all of a sudden you hear a THUNK CLUNK THUNK when you start sewing again?
If not, good for you. But I know that this has happened to a lot of our customers for sure!
Often, this sound comes from not getting your thread in the take-up lever while threading.
If you have a new needle that is the appropriate size/type and your machine is clean, but you start to hear a clunking sound after rethreading, this is the first thing to check. And it's such an easy fix. In fact, I think some people are so surprised when we tell them to simply rethread, because the sound is so terrible they think something is seriously wrong with their machine.
Now, there could be something really wrong with your machine, but the biggest clue that it's a missed take-up lever is that the problem starts suddenly, most of the time after rethreading. (machine was sewing just fine before that).
How do you make sure to thread your take-up lever?
On some machines, it's very easy to see the take up lever, and on others it's hidden behind the machine casing. Here's what you should do to try and ensure success.
-Raise your presser foot!(Full rant here)
-Put your needle in the highest position (use the needle up down button or line up the notch on your handwheel with the casing of your machine- more info here)
-Clear the thread path. Make sure there's no thread wrapped around a spool cap or trapped under your spool.
-Feel it! If your presser foot is up and your needle in the highest position, hold the thread near the spool with your right hand and thread with your left, you'll be able to feel the thread slide into the take-up lever.
-STOP immediately if you hear a THUNKing sound and re-thread. What's happening is that your top thread is not regulated, and it can ball up undereath the feed dogs and cause issues.
-Clean out your bobbin area and re-thread if you think you missed your take up lever.

Why does my needle keep breaking and bobbin case makes a clicking sound and locks up on me?


I'd guess the bobbin case is not firmly in place with the locking tabs. I believe the click is the needle striking the out of place bobbin. Your Owner's manual may give you some better understanding.

If this is a new machine to you please get and read the operator's manual before trying to operate. Super fast, and powerful machine be careful as you learn how to properly operate it.

Grinding noise and needles breaking


Needle breaks
1.the needle is damaged
2.the needle is not correctly inserted
3.wrong size needle for the fabric
4.the wrong foot is attached
5.the needle clamp screw is loose
6. Top tension is too tight
7. Machine could be out of time
since there is a grinding noise it would be a good idea to have the
machine checked

CE-5000 thumping sound when I sew, messy stitching


any sound out of the ordinary could mean that a part is worn or fixing to break or something is loose
it's very possible that the machine needs to be serviced

Top thread goes for awhile and then breaks. Alsoo


Try a fresh needle and be sure the flat side of the needle shaft is facing the back of the machine.

Thread the machine with the presser foot in the up position.

Make sure the bobbin is inserted into the case so the thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct direction and through the proper guides.

Hold onto the thread end at the needle and hand-walk the needle down into the needle plate and back up, bringing the bobbin thread with it.

Take both thread ends under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

Sewing with walking foot


Take the needle out and run the machine for a while with the walking foot fitted. Refit the needle and try again but only turn the machine over by hand to see if the problem has cleared. If no luck it sounds like the walking foot timing needs adjusting.
