Brothers Electric Sewing Machine Knocking noise

First thing, install a brand new needle. A bent/damaged needle will frequently make noises.

Second, if it is mechanical machine (not computerized), it most likely needs a good cleaning and oiling.

Will not zigzag or decorative stitches New to these newer plastic style...

If it continues to make a knocking noise, it could have a bent part or be out of time, in which case you should contact a service repair shop.

Seems to be out of sync. makes a knocking sound, not catching bobbin thread.

Is the needle in facing the right way? Flat shank to the back.

The knocking sound could be your needle is bent too, have you just had a threading jam up?

I'd remove the needle plate and bobbin and threads, clean everything and oil, put in a new needle, then slowly move the flywheel manually and watch the needle action to see if you can identify where the knocking noise is coming from.

Failing that, I'd say the timing is out, take it to a serviceman. The thread's not locking is usually a good indication of this fault.

The needle not picking up thread from the bobbin and there is a knocking sound

your problem is a result of sewing hard or thick cloth. adjustments of the mechanisms of your machine is needed. knocking indicates that some part may have loosen up and needs proper adjustment. i'd like to help you more but this is only what i can do for you!

Knocking noise

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.

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.

Loud noise while sewing

Could you let us know which machine this is.....

In the meantime....the damaged bobbin is not good, replace it/them........if you have a top loading drop-in bobbin, check for needle damage on the plastic bobbin case (remove needleplate to access).

If there is evidence of needle strikes, if mild, you could try to use very fine wet & dry emery paper to smooth, if severe, buy a new bobbin case.

There may be a load of lint under and around the bobbin case too, remove and clean up this area. If very dirty, use methylated spitit on cloth or cottonbud (QTip) to remove grime (don't soak)
