There could be a few reasons why the stitches on your New Home 910 sewing machine are tight and the fabric is not feeding forward properly. Here are a few things you can try:
  1. Check the tension: Make sure that the tension on your sewing machine is properly adjusted. The tension controls how tightly the thread is pulled through the fabric. If the tension is too loose, the stitches will be too loose, and if it is too tight, the stitches will be too tight. You can refer to your sewing machine manual or a tension chart to help you adjust the tension properly.
  2. Check the needle: Make sure that you are using the correct needle size and type for the fabric you are sewing. Using the wrong needle can cause the stitches to be too tight or too loose, or it can cause the fabric to bunch or pucker.
  3. Clean and oil the machine: Make sure that you are regularly cleaning and oiling your sewing machine to keep it in good working order. Debris or lint can build up in the machine and cause problems with the stitching.
  4. Check the feed dogs: The feed dogs are the small teeth that move the fabric through the machine as you sew. Make sure that they are not clogged or damaged, and that they are properly aligned with the needle.
  5. Seek professional help: If you have tried these steps and are still experiencing problems with your sewing machine, it may be necessary to seek the help of a professional. A qualified sewing machine technician will be able to diagnose and repair any issues with your machine.

Brother PC-420 sewing machine wont switch on at all.

Take off the slide plate and reseat the bobbin case. Can you turn the handwheel by hand now? If not, you may have a thread jam that seized the machine causing the security device to activate to prevent further damage. This doesn't seem like a situation that would fry a board, but if it moves freely, but still won't turn on; take it to a technician or return it.

My machine will chain without fabric but as soon as I place fabric and sew it will not make stitches on fabric

Be sure to use brand new needles in the machine (confirm they are the correct needles for the machine) and make sure they are installed facing the correct direction and pushed all the way up before tightened. Start a chain without the fabric, then when it's a couple inches long, raise the presser foot and add the fabric.

Could be your machine has a timing issue and probably requires service.

Sounds like you've got a thread jam going on in the bobbin case area. Good cleaning and a new needle will probably fix it. See:

My brother started making a loud noise when sewing pant fabrics

Your machine is complaining because it doesn't have the power to push through the layers of fabric. That clunking noise is the gears in the machine skipping and being sheered off (or it will be eventually) STOP!

If you feel that you need to continue... stop when it does this noise and use the HAND WHEEL. You'll also need to make sure that the presser foot remains level while going over thick seams.

Make sure you are threading the machine correctly. Make sure you are using serger thread that isn't old. Make sure you are undoing all the threads when it breaks and thread it from the beginning.

Make sure you have the right needles in their respective places. My Juki MO has two different size needles.

My CS6000i is freezing on sewing over seams and creating a terrible loud sound refusing to sew. it does not give an error message and once stopped it will be like it never happened, however I have to...

At Joann Fabrics you can buy a notion called a Jean a ma jig, it is something that you put under the rear of the presser foot so that the presser foot stays level and will go over the seam easily. Make sure if you use heavier fabric or are sewing on denim use a #14 or #16 needle so that it won't break. Good luck

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.

Machine does not feed properly. It sewed fine for

Here are a few solutions to check.

* Check your fabric to make sure it isn't caught on something.

* Check your pressure foot to make sure it's screwed tightly in place.

* Adjust the pressure of your pressure foot as it may be too light or too heavy for your fabric.

* Check your feed dogs for lint. If your feed dogs are clogged with lint, they're not gripping your fabric properly. Remove your pressure foot and clean out any lint with an old toothbrush.

* Raise your feed dogs if your machine has this function. They may have been inadvertently lowered.

* Check your stitch length regulator, If its set at “0” or a very small number, try switching to a longer stitch length.

* Change your needle, it may be damaged.

* Check your needle plate and make sure it's securely in place.

* Use a “Jean-a-ma-jig” or a “Hump-jumper”. If you've been trying to sew over a bump of fabric, such as a thick jean hem, try using this tool (your local fabric store should carry it). It keeps your pressure foot level as you sew over the bump and gives your feed dogs something to grip.

I hope this helps
