Avante 18 Noise
  • My Avante with ProStitcher is making a grinding noise after about an hour of use. It does it both with the ProStitcher and doing free motion. Has anyone else had this problem?
  • Did oiling your machine solve the problem? I'm also experiencing a grinding sound -- very concerning. Although at the beginning I failed to oil as often as I should, once I realized this, I changed may ways and now I oil regularly.
  • I have had no problems with noise. The Avante' is much quieter that the HQ16 so am very happy with it. I don't have near as many tension problems with the Avante' as with the HQ16. I'm so glad I switched.
