Too little info. but a common cause of knocking is the loopers hitting or rubbing each other, an out of time issue. unfortunately i would recommend that you take it to a qualified repair shop to avoid greater damage.

We got Juki DDL8100E. Few days ago. when sewing, needle broke and since then our machine is making heavvy noise. Also, the Stitch adjuster knob is vibrating up and down. please help


check that a bit of the broken needle is not interfering with the bobbin case movement
if the breakage was hard enough it may have altered the needle / hook timing which will cause a knocking sound as well

A KNOCK FROM MACHINE


If the machine is making a knocking noise when stitching, the first thing to do is install a brand-new needle. Frequently, bent or damaged needles will make a horrible noise. If the noise continues, you may want to take it in for service. Could be out of time.

The machine is stuck in zigzag cannon move control knobs


If the buttonhole dial has been rotated so that its indicator mark is not at zero (vertical aligned with the plate indicator mark), the stitch width dial will not function. Turn the buttonhole dial clockwise to the vertical mark.

Sounds like your needle is hitting the needle plate instead of going through the tiny hole down to the bobbin. Try using the handwheel slowly and watch. Or perhaps the needle is hitting the bobbin case. Something has been knocked off the straight I think. Has your machine been dropped or dmamaged?

I want to know which knob I use to make the stitching narrower


there are generally two variable controls .. one adjusts the stitch length (distance between stitches measured in stitches per inch) ... the second is stitch width .. that adjusts how far the zigzag moves left and right .. thats usually just a number from 0 to 10 or so .. 10 would be maximum width .. 0 would be used for straight stitch ..
so you need to adjust the stitch width control to make the stitching narrower .. the controls are called different things on different brand sewing machines .. if you have the brand and model number then there may be instruction booklets available ...

Knocking noise when sewing


If the machine does not knock when in straight stitch then it is the stitch width limiter. You would have to take off the side cover with a T20 torx screwdriver. Once open you will see an elongated U-shaped piece with a screw through the bottom of it (its maybe a half inch long or so). Its just above that big bottom thread guide. I think you need a T10 torx driver, loosen that screw and move that u-shaped part slightly (very slightly) so it isn't hitting anymore on the side to side action. It happens but can't really harm anything.
I'm sure thats it.
