In general, when your machine begins to make the loud banging noises, it tends to indicate a timing issue. The best way to fix this is to seek the help of a service person who deals with sewing machines. a regular service/check of your machine is recommended to help prevent these issues from arising, or regretably something more sinister.

My Pfaff 5.5 creative vision original machine will only sew a few stitches then starts making a bang noise. But when I take the bobbin case out it does run smoothly.

If you just had it cleaned, did they not check whether it functions properly? If so, take it back. Something is wrong and you can damage it further by continuing to try to use the machine.

My machine is making a loud banging noise

These are the things that cause my machine to make a "banging" sound:

The machines with the horizontal/drop-in bobbin sometimes collect lint in the bobbin case.

Sewing fabric backed with a synthetic/foam/vinyl or adhesive.

Wrong size needle for the type of fabric being sewn.

hi! there,
open needle plate if the shuttle race and the bobbins has been pull out that making noise,or accumulation of thread under bobbins, if nothing there, run machine and check if shuttle race and bobbins are moving,also with the needle if not,there are opening at the bottom of machine try to open if some gears are broken,or belt is slip.

Machine makes banging noise

wow, taking apart and putting it back together is a big feat. I think you should check the needle and its height, could be to low and is hitting just enough to make noise and not break.

Kenmore sewing machine, needle banging down, bobbin banging around, etc.

Sounds to me like your bobbin case or hook came loose. Maybe your machine is out of time.
Were you possibly pulling the material through the machine to hurry things along, or did you let the machine feed it itself? Pulling it through can cause needles to flex and hit the hook area incorrectly, causing the machine to go out of time.
Now, if the needle is not going into the needle plate at the correct location ALL the time, that could be a broken needle bar (bad news), or a broken swing bar (really bad news)
