Question about Brother XL-2600

1 Answer

The needle on my machine appears to suddenly be too low. I was sewing, and there was suddenly a thudding noise as I sewed. When I next needed to rethread the needle, the needle is now too low for the threader to go through the eye of the needle. The needle is in its highest position (the knob on the side has the line at the top), and I tried making sure the needle was pushed up, and it does go all the way up to the needle stop.

Why does it make a knocking noise as it sews?


the needle position is up tight in the holder and no where else
the cut away bit of the needle faces the bobbin case hook and the groove in the needle faces the end of the machine and gives clearance for the thread to pass through the material
from your description and what you did, the needle /hook timing needs adjusting as it is out
turn the machine over by hand as in sewing and watch the position of the eye of the needle and the bobbin case hook
just as the needle starts to move up, the hook should be just above the eye of the needle at the edge of the needle
The adjustment is by loosing off the screw on the vertical shaft at the end of the machine that is attached to an arm that moves the needle up and down and move that bit up or down until the needle is positioned correctly to the hook
tighten up the screw
next is to check the needle tension is not too tight
workshop manuals are available on line in pdf version or take it to a sewing machine repair shop for a proper diagnosis

Have you taken your throat plate off and cleaned that out? You have to take a stubby short screwdriver and remove the throat plate. Sometimes, lint and cloth build up in there and it looks like felt almost. I was surprised when mine had it, I always followed the standard way of cleaning and lubricating until my friend told me about this. I was shocked, to say the least, that she was right. And my machine quieted right down. Hope this solves your problem

We recently bought a used 301 Singer Sewing machine, it appears to sew well but makes a loud clattering sound,where the needle goes up & down, is this typical for this machine?


If I remember the 301 is an American model slant needle with a gear driven motor, the machines were known as 'Rockets' the noise you can hear is the play in the shaft of the motor which is very common to that model if it is where the noise is coming from, if the noise is coming from the needle area then a drop of oil might do it some good.

Thread bunching underneath


clean the lint out with canned air and check the bobbin holder for any possible needle pieces from breaking a needle maybe the needle is bent and you can't see the slight bend.may need oiling too
