    Hi Anonymous, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? Is your machine an old style or newer brand? What type and model is it? Does it make less noise if you put the pressure foot up?

SOURCE: Needle hits the bobbin spindle and makes a "clonking" noise

it sounds like the timing is out. are you confident the needle is fully inserted into the needle holder? if so take it back to the shop or look here for instructions on repair for stylist machines. http://www.tandtrepair.com/StylistLine.html

goodluck,

scott

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

I have brother project runway computerized machine.its making some weird noise when the handle wheel rotates slowly and also near the needle shaft area.manual doesn't suggest to oil.what can I do to get...


There are some areas of the machine which cannot be accessed for home servicing - the covers need to be opened up to access them. If the hand wheel is heavy to turn then you may be at the beginning of a needle bar seizure, given the noise at that end of the machine - this will usually sound like a groan. We see this occasionally in machines which have been worked hard without servicing. If you have caught it early, it should be solved by a service at your local sewing centre.
You can loosen the screw on the back and slide the end cover off and put a couple of drops of oil (use only light machine oil) on the top of the needle bar, which will run down to the bearing surfaces, but if that is dry enough to be making noises, the other internal bearings will also be looking for some love.

Janome 7330 making noise while I sew multiple layers of batting and fabric together.


Sewing incredibly thick fabric will cause the machine to clonk and will cause major damage

Jams up when attempting to sew, making loud noise. Thread mass under fabric when able to cut loose from machine.


Thread jams underneath usually are caused by top thread tension issues. Things to check:
top tension discs are clean and no thread traces caught in there, tension is set to medium number usually 4 or 5 and that the top thread is running freely from the thread spool, correctly thread through the tension discs, and down to the needle. Lower the pressure foot and pull the thread from just above the needle; it should feel firm resistance if under tension correctly.

As you've had a good jam up, good idea to now remove the bobbin, needle plate and bobbin holder (refer to your manual if you have never done this before) and clean out the hook area well, look for any fine thread remants and brush out any lint etc. Oil the rotary hook area as per your manual. Now reassemble, and rethread everything again checking that the bobbin thread is clicked into the tension spring and that the top thread is through the tension discs correctly.

Also, pop in a new needle, flat shank to the back, then try again.

Good luck with your machine.

The needle on my sewing machine literally just fell off. Not kidding. I'm holding an unbent and otherwise pristine needle. Oh brother SE-270D! I'm not sure how to put the needle back in. I think it just...


when you put the needle in the needle clamp holder the flat side of the needle goes toward the back of the the machine when you tighten the needle clamp screw make sure it's holding the needle,,make sure you can't pull the needle back out of the clamp,, if you can something is wrong with the needle clamp or the screw

Thread's bunch-up lower fabric


Make sure your bobbin is in proper and secure, it should click when you put it in. Also try putting a new needle in. Clanking noises are sometimes a bent needle.

Singer sewiing machine clicking


Remove the needle , tighten the needle set screw so the clamp doesn't rattle and run the machine.This will give you a better idea of where the noise originates.
Remove the top cover and put a drop of sewing machine oil(not 3 in 1 oil) on anyplace that moves and rubs. Run the machine again and see if you still have the noise. Replace the top cover.
Open the side cover(left side) put a drop of oil on any thing that moves or rubs(Shafts or joints). Run the machine again.
Remove the bottom cover and repeat the above processes.
If you still have the problem and it is bothering either you or the machine then it needs to be seen by a technician.
