SOURCE: Brother Innovis 4000 D stopped sewing

These machines are known to freeze up in the needle bar crank, even when only a couple of hours old. If it is less than a year old, a Brother certified service center will fix it under warranty.

Why does it make a knocking noise as it sews?


the needle position is up tight in the holder and no where else
the cut away bit of the needle faces the bobbin case hook and the groove in the needle faces the end of the machine and gives clearance for the thread to pass through the material
from your description and what you did, the needle /hook timing needs adjusting as it is out
turn the machine over by hand as in sewing and watch the position of the eye of the needle and the bobbin case hook
just as the needle starts to move up, the hook should be just above the eye of the needle at the edge of the needle
The adjustment is by loosing off the screw on the vertical shaft at the end of the machine that is attached to an arm that moves the needle up and down and move that bit up or down until the needle is positioned correctly to the hook
tighten up the screw
next is to check the needle tension is not too tight
workshop manuals are available on line in pdf version or take it to a sewing machine repair shop for a proper diagnosis

Needle 1/ was working ok then a noise had to power down, Now it will not let me do anything just keeps telling me to power down all the time. it is a vicious circle. any cluesTh


you may have knocked it out of time. when you heard the noise it might have been the needle hitting the fabric to hard which can sometimes knock your machine out of time. you may have to find a local sewing machine store that fixes machines. if you find one they should be able to repair it for little to no cost.

My janome 11000 memorycraft's needle threader has jammed in the down position and cannot be moved


Thanks to floraq803, we have our 11000 working again. The needle threader was stuck in the down position. We turned off the machine, and turned the wheel (which controls where the needle is) until the needle threader bar was straight (approximately 1/2 way between the needle being all the way down and all the way up). Turned on the machine and the threader came back up again. Now back to sewing.

My brother started making a loud noise when sewing pant fabrics


Your machine is complaining because it doesn't have the power to push through the layers of fabric. That clunking noise is the gears in the machine skipping and being sheered off (or it will be eventually) STOP!

If you feel that you need to continue... stop when it does this noise and use the HAND WHEEL. You'll also need to make sure that the presser foot remains level while going over thick seams.

My brand new machine Brother PC 420 is making a clunking noise as the needle moves as if the timing may be off? What is this?


Make sure that your needle is inserted all of the way up, maybe even install a new one, just to be sure. Recheck your threading, with presser foot up, pull top thread, should pull smoothly, now put the presser foot down, pull again, should barely move. If, you are sewing on a bare table, try putting a bath towel under it. If, noise continues, return it and get a new one.

How do I adjust the needle shaft position on my Hobbylock 788. It somehow shifted up.


take the end cap off and follow the needle bar up until you see a block with a screw in the middle of it.bring the needle bar down useing the handwheel to its lowest position loosen the screw and you should be able to move the needle bar if you have a needle threader you can use it to reset the height of the needle bar just bring the threader down and then lower the needle bar to where the threader fits into the eye of the needle like it would if it were being threaded
