Hiya Kandie. Usually when you can't pull the bobbin through, the wrong size needle is in, try a different size needle. Hope I was some help for you.

Machine will not sew its is looping under neath from top cotton


Remove the upper thread from your machine.

RAISE the presser foot and then rethread from the beginning. Raising the presser foot releases the tension disk so the thread will seat properly). Also, verify that the threading steps are correct (consult the threading instructions).

Check that the bobbin thread has been loaded in the bobbin case properly and threaded through the tension spring.

Test. If the upper thread is still showing under the fabric, tighten the upper tension disk until the upper and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

When I finish to sew the end of string does not lacks it self and when you pull the bottom of the string everything opens


If the upper thread is looping on the bottom of the fabric as you sew, the upper tension is too loose. It could be threaded incorrectly, the upper thread may not be seated in the tension disk properly (be sure to RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread), or the upper thread tension is set too loose.

If you have checked everything and it is still looping underneath, the bobbin tension may be too loose or the bobbincase needs replacement.

John Lewis mini sewing machine


This was really helpful for me fixing my daughter a John Lewis (janome) mini sewing machine, and now can get the bobbin thread up again, however, when you sew, the thread is not staying in stitches, just coming off the material completely. I tried forcing the gears on one more time but then it didn't pick up the bobbin thread again so went back to the other gear position. Any ideas of what to try and get it stitching again? Thanks

Bobbin case catching thread


I believe that you are talking about the assembly that holds the bobbin case in. The bracket that holds the bobbin case in must be adjusted to allow the upper thread to slide by. Check if the thread will go by this area without "hanging up" while rotating the hand wheel. Also check your bobbin to make sure you have the right one. If it is too high or wide it will definitely be a problem.

Janome sew mini needle not picking up bobbin thread.


Hi: Is this a needle provided with the machine as new? What type of fabric are you sewing... have you tried a different fabric? Is the bobbin placed into the machine correctly with it unwinding in the right direction?

Janome mini heavy duty sewing machine


when you sew keep a eye on the thread take up lever & see if the thread comes off while your sewing, I've had this happen to me & I've been sewing for over 30 years. if this does happen, take a pair of pliers & very gently close the take up lever just alittle but not enough to damage it.
also check the needle to see if it's damaged--if your not sure change the needle--flat side goes to the back of the machine
always make sure the fabric & needle & thread are compatable--the thread must be able to pull thru the needle with out any problem
also check to make sure there are not any burrs on the needle plate or bobbin or bobbin case

I have a janome 1600P, it will not sew without either the top thread breaking or the bobin thread breaking. It will sew for about a quarter of an inch and then the thread breaks, I have changed the bo


My experiences with thread breaking with machine on a quilting frame make me look at the upper tension being set too high, the needle being worn or movement of the machine is too fast. Reduce the upper tension first, then sew in straight lines at first. See if you can sew slowly, in straight lines and reduce the upper tension until the thread stops breaking. If so, try some 1-2 inch circles, again going slowly. If the needle thread is pulling to the back, you will need to increase the upper tension again until the stitches meet in the middle of the fabric. If you can't locate a balanced spot where the needle thread is not pulling to the back side and thread doesn't break, try taking the machine off of the frame and sewing on a table. If it won't sew this way, it needs some professional help. If it does, you will probably save a lot of time taking it in for service, making sure to explain to the repair center that you have problems on a quilting frame, not while sewing normally. When the machine is adjusted to sew normally on a table and you move it to the frame, you will probably need to reduce the tension by 1-2 complete turns of the tension knob.

Bobbin thread not feeding into the upper needle thread


completely unthread the machine....ensure the needle piston shaft is in the correct position and retread the upper. reinstall the bobbin and turn the machine by hand to engage the bobbin thread. Draw the bobbin thread through the stitch plate and with the needle thread, allow to trail off the back. attempt to sew a piece of scap material.

please let me know what happens at this point.
