Question about Brother SE400 Computerized Sewing and Embroidery Machine
I have a Brother se400 brand new today. When I turn it on it makes a rattling noise when the needle moves. I also have a Brother NV500 cassette threading system and when it starts it is very quiet. This rattles like something is loose inside. I have embroidered with it and have tested every stitch function all is well but this just doesn't sound normal. Would anyone possibly have an answer for this?? Thank you so much for any help or assistance. Best regards, Debi
Debbie the sound you are hearing is the needle width stepper motor initializing. This is normal. Do not be concern.

Could the little hook that is stuck over the bobbin area be the thread cutter? My thread cutter gets stuck there and I have to turn my machine off and then try to use the cutter to reset it to its "resting" position.

1 - Flat side of the needle is facing the back of the machine.
2 - Threaded machine with the presser foot up - always.
3 - Bobbin thread is feeding from the spool in the correct direction and through the proper guides.
Lower and raise the threaded needle, holding onto the end of the thread.
If this does not pull the bobbin thread up, the timing may need adjusting.
There is a graphic for doing this as sewusa.com or take it into the dealer for service.
