Question about Janome Sewing Machines
I assume you tried to lay out the lower bobbin thread in different ways, Is the lower bobbin mechanism functioning? Not just the walking foot, but the outer assembly outside of the bobbin that encircles it. Is the bobbin fully seated in the carrier and is the carrier fully seated?
They need to fully seat, kind of like nesting eggs. Even the large piece held by turn buttons.

The tread only breaks in the needle. what can i do . i don't get to sew anything . I tread the needle and get everything ready and start the machine and as quickly as that the tread is broken and the machine has not sewn at all.

If you have pattern dials set correctly then I might guess that one or more sets may have been missed when the thread was being set up in the machine. most of these models show either arrows or numbers for each or way the thread needs to be routed.

Did you bend the throat plate? I have done that and it was a nightmare. I took it off and gently hit it from the backside with a towel over it to bend it back the way it was. It worked fine.

Take the thread completely off the top of the machine. Put in a new needle. Remove the bobbin. When you rethread the top of the machine make sure the presser foot (that rests on the fabric) is in the "UP" position and rethread the top. Also when you thread the top, put some "pull" on the thread as you thread it, don't just lay the thread in the tracks. You need to pull the thread with some taughtness through the machine so it gets into the correct places under the covers so you have good tension and good stitching. Then put the bobbin back in and make sure when you thread the bobbin case that the thread "clicks" slightly as you pull the thread into the metal tension area of the black bobbin case. Anytime a sewing machine breaks thread at the needle, you should unthread the entire top and rethread it because the thread can jump out of it's guides that are under the plastic covers and you won't be able to see it, but you will see very ugly stitching!!!

If the machine is now threaded, lift the presser foot.
Now, pull about 10" of thread through the needle.
The next time you thread the machine, lift the presser foot first.
When the presser foot is up, the tension control opens and allows the thread to "seat" into the control, then when the foot is down the control closes to the indicated setting.
When threading the machine with the foot is down, thread does not enter the tension control and when you start to sew, there is no tension on the thread.
No tension = loosey, goosey, loopy stitches underneath.
Because the lack of tension on the top thread, the bobbin thread cannot lock a proper stitch.
