Have you tried a new needle, perhaps it is blunt. Or perhaps your fabric is too thick for the needle you are using.

How to get brother pr600 out of main motor test mode?

Looks like the machine is bound up, or the motor is failing. If the hand wheel is easy to turn then it is probably the motor drawing too much current.
Brother recommends a new motor and belt every 1500 hours of run time.

Main motor lock, inappropriate needle position, after broken needle

The broken needle may be lodged in the bobbin housing. If you cannot locate, take it in for professional servicing. You may have put the timing out of whack.

Turn the big knob on the right of your Singer 1507 machine so that the vertical stitch line in the center. (Currently your machine most likely has the vertical stitch line to the left.) Don't push your needle manually; you will damage the needle.

If it really is your motor overheating, you either need it serviced, or replaced, possibly with another machine which is more suited to the type of sewing you do.

Brother pro 600 embrodiery machine

You may have a bent bar inside the machine (big trouble), needle error is easy it is just to wind the big nob at the back of the machine, make sure you are on the correct needle when you move it, on mine it is a little stiff, just do it slowly. The engineer just bent my bar back into shape, that was 1yrs ago. Good luck have fun :-)
