    Have you checked to make sure your frame is level?

    Loosen the quilt in the frame so it sags just a bit.

    Make sure your frame is level, as Country1 suggested.

    Good luck!

    Quilt too tight is what causes mine to literally bounce. How long has it been since you oiled your machine? What exactly is vibrating?

    I have a Voyager and it gets a drink once per day if I have a quilt loaded & been working on it. Before I got it, I used an Elna 7200 domestic machine and I tried to remember to put a drop under the bobbin case when I loaded it on the frame and again when I took it off.

    I was having issues with the Elna yesterday while piecing a denim & corduroy rag quilt and gave it a drop of oil since I don't remember when I did it last. That helped some but I think my real problem is dry thread or the corduroy and the thread not getting along. The thread seems to be rubbing on something--the corduroy I suspect--causing it to frazzle and then jam or break at the needle eye.
