Re: Machine is Whining
Any unusual sounds should be checked out by your dealer to prevent serious damage. However, first check the flywheel, on the top right side of the machine, for any thread that were caught between the flywheel and casing, causing the motor to work harder. If not, take it to your dealer.

Sound like the whole unit needs a good cleaning. My rule is "if it moves give it a lube", be careful not to get oil on electric boards or in the motor. What is the make and model of your machine. I will try to help you more.
Look on the back of the machine there is usually a tension dial. Try adjusting that. I f that does't work your manual lists instructions for cleaning and oiling a little bit of oil in the right place works wonders or on the oher hand a little thread in the wrong place will stop an electric motor.
Have you turned it back on once the machine has cooled down? If you have, and it still makes noise and won't stitch then I think the motor is damaged and you need to take it for repair. Does it do ordinary sewing or is the motor completely uncooperative? Meantime, take the bobbin assembly apart and clean it out - ask for more instructions if you don't know how to do this. Be sure both the top thread and bobbin threads are threaded correctly and clicked into their respective tensions. Did you "park" the embroidery unit before turning the machine off? You need to do this, if the machine will do it that is. You will need to take the machine in to be checked even if you do get it working. Any major problem with nesting - did you break needles too? - almost certainly will have put your needle assembly out - it will need re-centering.
Make sure that the right large dial (which is the drive wheel for the motor) is engaged. You might have it set for winding a bobbin and the needle will not go down unless you have the right wheel pushed in.
You are threading the top of the machine incorrectly.
Make sure the needle is in correctly with the flat side to the rear of
the machine, make sure to thread the upper and lower portions of the
machine correctly. If this does not solve your problem, please respond.
No the sounds are not normal,
I would suggest you have the machine looked at by a sewing machine tech.
I have never come across this problem before and would need to look at the machine before making a diagnosis.
Sorry to be of little help but it would be unfair to give bad advice.
