Question about Janome Sewing Machines
Taking those parts out was a good idea. Some machines you can engage your thread cutter with the bobbin etc. removed. Try this . Make sure your presser foot is down and you fingers are out of the way. see if the sound is still there. if so, I would recomment you take it in for service. The jam could have knocked the cutter out of alignment.

SOURCE: bobbin jams
This is a common problem with all sewing machines. You must make sure that both needle and bobbin thread are behind the sewing foot and that there is at least 4inches of each thread before you begin stitching. Thread jams can also be caused by improper placement of bobbin in the casing. Place the bobbin in the case so the open side is facing you, the thread end should be on your right, then slide the thread into the opening leaving about 6 inches to pull through. It may look like it should be the other way, but there needs to be some tension. If these solutions do not help, you probably need to have your machine cleaned and adjusted.

I have changed stabalizers and the type of bobbin thread i am using (invisible poly) and it seemd to have solved the problem. Note: wind invisible thread very slowly and carefully it is like fishing line

If it is damaged from turning out of place once, it could have rough spots on it that makes the thread hang on it, and keeps making it turn over and over. Use a finger nail board (fine sanding) and smoothall rough spots. Then reset the bobbin case taking care to put the notch in the bobbin case in alignment with the proper spot in the machine (basically 5 o’clock) when looking at the round area where the bobbin case goes.

If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.
Let me know.
