I'm having an odd issue with my, very new - May 2012, Brother 1034D. It's starting making a loud, hard to describe maybe swooshing sound?, occasionally. As I'm stitching and not really rhythmic. But startling and quick pretty often - maybe 2 or 3 times in a long seam. Maybe like metal against metal? Not really sure, it's hard to define. I cleaned out all the lint I could find and oiled as per the manual, but it still continues. No change in stitch quality that I can tell, it's still great. It's set/threaded for a 3 thread overlock, and that didn't change from before it made the noise. I have not rethreaded it, I have turned it off a couple of times. I had not just rethreaded before it started the noise, either.
Any suggestions? Anyone else with this?

If it's still stitching the same as before, I would think that this sound is coming from the motor. I'd call or email Brother to ask them. This machine might still be under warranty.

Mine does the same thing!

I got mine in January. I describe it as sort of like the sound of a spring uncoiling. Since the stitching appears consistent, I figured it was just a quirk of the machine. I would be interested in what others say.

That's exactly the sound it makes - I couldn't describe it but when I read your response it was right on. Rather loud and startling when it does it. I got mine at the end of April - I found my registration email for April 27. Now I need to hunt down my serial number and call them. IT just started doing it on Sunday afternoon. I've used it some but not over used it or abused it.

A couple of times I thought my old serger was making a noise... One time it needed new needles other couple of times the thread was 'catching' the edge of the thread spool..

The only time I recall my Brother making a loud, startling noise, which frightened me at the time, was after I had disengaged and/or re-engaged the cutting knives. Is it possible that the switch on the left side (for the knife) could have gotten nudged over a bit?
