SOURCE: Brother Sewing Machine model:CS8150 bobbin thread problems

The top of the machine is not threaded correctly. First raise the presserfot then rethread the machine. Bottom looping is usually caused by a lack of top tension. There could allso be a bur on the hook.

that is a fifty fifty chance you have to take. It may be something minor rubbing or you could have a slightly bent shaft underneath making noise

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

SOURCE: I purchased a White Sew

We had the same issue. The needle was facing left/right instead of front/back. Once I unscrewed the needle and repositioned it so that I could thread it front/back, I was able to get it to catch.

My berinina sewing machine is making a clunking noise but the stitches look fine . how do i find out whats causing the noise?


first ck that your needle isn't hitting the bobbin !! that's the #1 thing that happens to make funny noises !! use a flashlight and view needle turned by hand as it slips into center of bobbin !! then also ck that darning lever isn't part ways engaged that will do it too !!

Husqvarna Viking - Thread gets caught up on the underside of material when trying to sew.


There are two things that come to mind that may be causing the problem.
1) Change the needle, for it could be bent even thought it may not look it. (This is the most likely cause).
2) Have a look just inside and check if any screws have come loose. This has happened to me. (Even the repair man did not find it.

A "clunking" noise when stitching


some sewing machines have more sounds than others, check to make sure the bobbin is setting securely in the bobbin case,and if that doesn't
solve the noise problem then ,it would be a good idea to have the machine serviced

Loud clunking noise when sewing. . . then it starts to stutter then it stops & gives me an error. It doesn't occur when reverse sewing though


try these suggestions
change the needle
rethread the machine top & bobbin
make sure to use every thread guide
make sure the bobbin is not damaged or warped
make sure the bobbin is not over full
make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case
make sure the bobbin case fits securely into the machine unless it's
a drop in bobbin
if these suggestions don't help then the machine may need to be
checked at a repair shop

My bobbin thread keeps breaking and the machine starts sewing then it slows down and the thread breaks. It makes a terrible noise.like a clunking sound.


rethread the machine top & bobbin
change needles
make sure the needle is inserted correctly
check the top thread tension--3 or 4 usually is good

some needles & thread do not work togeather-try this
Cut 6-8 inch piece of thread of the spool you are going to use for your project
Take the needle you are going to use for the project
& insert the thread thru the eye of the needle
& lift one end of the thread to a 45 degree angle
& if the needle is the right size for the thread it will slide down the thread
But if the needle hangs on the thread you need one size larger needle for the thread

if none of these suggestions work then you should consider taking it to a repair shop to be checked
