Question about Singer Quantum XL-1000 Computerized Sewing Machine
I used a thick fuzzy piece of material and now it makes a clicking noise. The bobbin and case moves, however will not pick if up. I did break the needle and replaced it.

Keep the bobbin area clean.
Now, what caused the needle to break? With the clicking noise it sounds like your timing is off.
1. Check this: With the bobbin and bobbin case out.
2. Now: Move the hand wheel and watch the needle under the plate.
3. As the needle starts to rise (still under plate) watch the needle and the hook (pointed thing under the bobbin case). The needle and hook should come close but not crash. Try the needle on the left and the right.
4. If they ever touch this means it is needing to be timed at your local shop.

You may have fuzz in your bobbin case or under the plate. If you have canned air, spray it out. Are you using a pre-wound bobbin or one you wound yourself. I've found pre-wounds to be the best. Make sure your thread is pulled thru the bobbin case correctly and your needle up top is threaded correctly too. It's real easy to miss either one. Also, be sure to use a good backing when using fuzzy fabric. What size needle are you using. Too small of a needle may cause this also. For standard embroidery or sewing usually use an 11. Hope maybe this will help. Kindest regards,
