Timing Belt for an Old Janome machine

I am looking for a timing belt for a 1974 Janome free arm machine. It's light blue in color, the front of the machine says 'American Home'. The back side says made for Dial and Sew by Janome. Model FA 772. I have called several companies, even the Janome. They said it was a generic machine that had several different name plates put on the front, and the belts were no longer available. Could you help me ? Thank you !!

My MC6500P Janome has a hard to turn wheel

This could be cause by a several different conditions. It is often the case in this situation that the machine is merely in need of lubrication. You may also have thread wrapped around one or all of your thread take up linkages. It could possibly be a matter of belt tension either on the motor belt or the timing belt. In any case it would probably be best to take this machine to a reputable sewing machine repair shop in your area.

I am no mechanic but it sounds like the drive belt from the machine motor is broken. Replace the belt. You should not need to time the machine or do anything else. It is a simple fix!

How to check timing on pe180d embroidery machine

In case of adjusting sewing machine timing, there are twomain parts that you should follow.To adjust the hook needle timing on the rotary hook, first,remove the bobbin, bobbin carrier, and covers so you can see the movement ofthe hook. This may involve removing the needle plate for top loadingassemblies, or removing the hook cap from the front of the machine. Itoften requires the removal of the lower covers to reach the componentparts. Adjust as needed when doing sewing machine repair.Set the machine to a straight stitch at the defaultposition. Different models have different default positions including themost common far left and center positions. If no problems are perceivedin needle bar positioning, the default position will suffice. If thereare needle bar position issues, these need to be adjusted prior to adjustingthe timing. Follow proper sewing machine repair procedures.Rotate the hand wheel toward youuntil you see the needle reach its lowest position and begin its rise. Now lookfor the point of the hook as you continue rotating the hand wheel. Thepoint of the hook should strike inside the needle scarf above the needleby about 0.5mm. Sewing machine repair is vital for smooth operations.Check to see if the hook fails topick up the thread. Double check the needle bar positioning including thehook needle spacing. If these are appropriate and the point of the needlestill fails to pick up the loop thread, proceed to adjust the timing of thehook. Maintain regular sewing machine repair. Look for the lower drivemechanism. It may be a lower shaft with gears on either end. If this isthe case, look to the right end of the shaft for a gear with adjusting setscrews. Loosen and manually adjust the position of the hook. Tightly hold thehand wheel while turning the drive shaft to set the proper position. Retighten adjusting screws. Some models have timing beltsthat control the timing of the sewing machine. Look for a belt connectedon each with to drive gears. Look for work cogs on the belt. Inmost cases, you can reset the timing belt, without replacing it. If,however, the belt requires replacement you will need to do so. Loosen the drive mechanism on the right side to free the movement of the belt.Manually adjust the position of the hook to the needle and re-tighten set screws. This knowledge is vital for effective sewing machine repair.Once the timing has been reset,conduct thorough test sewing on the sewing machine to make sure everything isworking properly.Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

Strange noise from the lever that connects the hoop to carriage

Sounds like you may have a belt problem or possibly an object in the carriage system. Underneath the free arm there is a cover that can be removed so you may inspect the area. I would remove it and take a look, maybe you will be lucky and find an object there that is causing the noise.

Janone 10000 stiff handwheel...

The belt material in the bottom of the machine is there because the belt is slipping and wearing away because of the 'stiffness' this "stiffness" is also causing the motor to strain. If you continue to use the machine in it's current state the motor WILL burn out.

Could be caused by one or two problems or both.

Lack of lubrication oil/grease on all bearings in particular the handwheel bearing, this will be the "tune up" your dealer did.

Other cause could be thread that has somehow got wrapped round the handwheel shaft.

Unless you know how to get into the top of the machine and lubricate it yourself then it is back to the dealer. Same access to the machine is needed to check for trapped thread.

If you do take it to the dealer make him/her show you how to lubricate the thing yourself.
Best of luck
