Question about Janome 6019QC Mechanical Sewing Machine
Help, my machine seems to have decided to sew in the wrong direction, and I dont know what to do.
I must have touched something. We have just moved house and I have lost the manual. I have a whole house to curtain and sewing in the wrong direction is making everything very difficult#
can anyone tell me how to sew so I can see what I am doing
Most likely is that the reverse mechanism is jammed with old oil and lint to form a glue.......especially if the machine has not been used recently or regularly.
If you can remove the base plates from underneath easily, then try to operate the reverse lever, you will see a metal lever trying to move a collar around the shaft......apply a small amount of WD40 or similar to both sides of the join then press the reverse rapidly for a while, move it by hand if necessary back and forth..........with regular use this is rarely an issue, it is most common when the machine is idle for long periods.
If you cannot remove base plates easily, ie if the case is split down the middle in 2 sections, take it to a Janome Dealer who has the repair manual as trying to split the case yourself without the manual is very difficult and you will probably break the retaining clips.
