My brother RL 417 makes a clattering noise when I start sewing and swallows the fabric

clean under the needle plate and in the bobbin area for lint
rethread the machine top and bobbin
if the bobbin is top loading make sure the bobbin is inserted into the bobbin case correctly

make sure the thread has not come off the thread take up lever

I have a hyundai 8 stitch sewign machine been working brillant but last night it kept missing the tread and the thread breaking or jabbing . today looking at it i see when it jabs the Bobbin Case Inner...


The top thread breaks

1. the needle thread is not threaded properly

2. The needle thread tension is to tight

3. The needle is bent or blunt

4. The needle is incorrectly inserted

5. The needle thread & the bobbin thread are not set under the presser foot when starting to sew

6. the threads were not drawn to the rear after sewing

7. The thread is either to heavy or to fine for the needle

8. Try a different spool or cone of thread


Bobbin thread breaks


1. There is a right way & wrong way to insert the bobbin in the case --when you insert the bobbin in if it doesn't stitch correctly turn the bobbin over see if that helps or bobbin case is not inserted correctly


2. Lint has collected in the bobbin holder


3. The bobbin is damaged & doesn't turn smoothly


4. Lower thread tension is two tight

if the sewing machine has a top loading bobbin, you may have to have the sewing machine checked to see if there is something wrong with the bobbin case or the hook and hook race.
I suggest try a new needle--one for the fabric being sewed
also try another bobbin
rethread the sewing machine top and bobbin, using every thread guide.
