Check the needle to be sure it is inserted with the flat side of the needle shank to the back of the machine.
If this is not the problem, the machine may need the timing adjusted. This is best done by a sewing machine tech.

Have you changed the needle since you purchased it? A needle should be replaced every 4-6 hours of stitching so for each garment sewn as a rule of thumb. So try replacing the needle, cleaning and oiling the maachine as per the manual. Check needle is in the correct way, it is easy to put in backwards if you aren't familar with them, flat shank to the back and there is usually a scarf (cut away area) at the back of the needle which is where the rotary hook under the needle plate comes around to catch the upper thread during the stitch process. So if needle is in backwards this will cause stitching to fail.
So elimate the needle firstly.
If this fails and the knocking noise continues, then it could be that the timing has been knocked out. It can happen if you sew over a pin and hit it hard (or the needle strikes the foot if stitch setup is wrong for the foot being used). In this case, you'll need to take it back to the shop for the serviceman to fix.

Have you checked that under the foot plate is clean sometimes a bit of fluff or thread collects there, and are you threading the needle the right way. check with the manual for the machine. Also check which way the manual recommends the bobbin thread is unwinding clockwise or anticlockwise. Hope this is helpful,
