Question about Janome Sewing Machines
It was working fine but it started rattling In bobbin area. I cleaned lint out. Not much there.
Try changing the bobbin and see if that helps
but if it doesn't help the the machine needs to be checked to see if
there is something wrong with the hook and hook race

re insert the needle, maybe you did not put the needle up as far as it is to go. Make sure the flat side of the needle is to the back of the machine. Without any thread in the machine hand turn the wheel and look to see if the hook of your bobbin would/could catch the thread (to see if timing is right)
then thread the machine and hand turn the wheel and see what it is doing.
Your timing might be off, but I do not think that is likely. Though it is possible that when the needle fell out, it hit something hard, broke, and pushed the machine out of timing. then you need to bring it in.

If its an older singer featherweight it should sound pretty quiet but if its a newer 221 it has plastic or nylon gears and they can make a "barking" sound

The key to proper stitches is that tension on the bobbin must equal the tension on the upper thread spool as well. The bobbin has a tension screw that may have come loose or the thread is not properly in the tensioner. For example, the bobbin could be in backwards. Or the tension of the top could be too light and allowing the tension on the bottom to pull the thread down too much.
Open the bobbin tray and watch while you slowly rotate the hand control to see it make a stitch.
You will probably be able to figure out what is wrong.
