Question about Janome Memory Craft 9000 Computerized Sewing Machine

Open Question

The bobbin case on my Janome 7730 sewing machine seems loose

It seems to make a lot of clunking noises under the metal plate when I am sewing and also is causing thread tension issues. I have taken the metal plate off to make sure there are no foreign objects or thread in the area but am not sure what kind of other steps to take. The machine is only three months old and still under warranty.

The top of the machine is not threaded correctly. First raise the presserfot then rethread the machine. Bottom looping is usually caused by a lack of top tension. There could allso be a bur on the hook.

The solution that I found last night was the thread tension. I have never touched the dial, only had it set on 'auto." When I started playing with it, I realized the top thread should be really easy to pull through the machine and it wasn't. I started turning the dial (to 3 or 4) and the thread slid through the machine perfectly. No more birds nest! I really thought it was bobbin initially because of the horrible sound it was making.

SOURCE: Bobbin Case

I'm having a similar problem today. I took out the bobbin case and when I went to put it back in, the whole system locks up. I've tired cleaning, changing needle taking the metal plate and piece that holds bobbin case out and put it all back in after cleaning. Nothing. My symptom is I can't get a complete stitch, the needle goes down, the whole deal acts like it will work and as soon as the arm of the bobbin case gets to 8 o' clock on the gears, It jams and won't hardly move. I cannot pull the bobbin case out easily after this. Perhaps there is someone out there that can help us!

SOURCE: noise from bobbin case on new Janome 4020

Check the bobbin to be sure it is inserted correctly. When you pull on the bobbin thread the bobbin should turn to the left(orcounterclockwise). If it doesn't, the thread will come out of the bobbin tension and give you loose stitches on top of the fabric. It will also make a noise because the bobbin is bouncing up and down.you will need to readjust your tension again.

SOURCE: Bobbin tension on Viking 350 Sewing Machine

Viking bobbin case tension adjustment:
When the bobbin runs out, sometimes it bends the bobbin case tension spring. Then tension is too light. Take the bobbin case out of the machine. Tie the loose bobbin thread to the Designer 1 needle plate. Insert the bobbin in the bobbin case. Here’s the tricky part set the bobbin case on the table as if it’s in the machine (Bobbin is visible and sitting horizontal to table top) threaded as if sewing and loose end tied to needle plate (that is removed from the machine). Lift the bobbin case off the table rotate it so that the flat side of the bobbin are vertical to the table and no longer horizontal. Have the bobbin case oriented so that the thread coming out of the bobbin case sprint (slot area where it is put for sewing) is at the top. Lift it high enough that the needle plate is lifted from the table. It should not release thread unless you shake it gently and then a very small amount of thread. The needle plate is the exact weight resistance your bobbin case should have on the thread.

How do I change the bobbin in a Janome sewing machine?


There is a small plastic plate where the needle goes down through the foot, remove this cover and you will see the bobbin. Remove the bobbin and refill or selecting another bobbin turn it so that when you pull the thread the bobbin turns anti-clock-wise, slip the bobbin into the black plastic casing, pulling the thread towards the small red arrow at the bottom of the casing, slip the thread between break in the silver metal sleeve pulling it to your left between the 2 pieces of metal this is where the tension on the thread is. You have now changed your bobbin. With the plastic plate still off, hold the top thread with your left hand and with your right slowly turn the wheel, this will send the needle (holding your top thread) down into the bobbin casing and will pick up the bottom thread, pull on the top thread and bring the bottom thread up through the hole in the plate. Replace the plastic plate and recommence sewing. Good luck

I have a Janome Memory Craft 4900. I broke a needle while sewing in a zipper. I replaced the needle,but now the machine makes a medal scraping noise when I sew. I took off the needle plate and bobbin...


did you find the tip of the needle? Also you may have a nick in the metal where the needle hit and broke.It can catch on other parts and need to be sanded or replaced.One time I had this issue and I found the tiny broken tip under my bobbin case.

Bobbin case


Try these suggestions


1. Change the needle--use a needle that's for the fabric being sewed


2. Rethread the machine--top --make sure to use every thread guide


3. try a different bobbin--make sure bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case, & make sure the bobbin is turned the correct way in the bobbin case


4. make sure the thread has not come off the thread take up lever


5. Clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or threads


6. Check to make sure the bobbin is not warped or damaged


7. Make sure the bobbin case is correctly in the machine,, if it's a top loading bobbin you may need to have the bobbin case checked to see if it's damaged or see if the hook and hook race has a problem


8. Also could be a timing problem, and the machine would need to be checked.

Singer 9410 Bobbin


I had the same problem and after looking on here and finding no answer I went back to my machine and found out what the problem was...ok, where the bobbin case sets in,the metal plate beside it needs to be fitted right close to the bobbin case, so loosen the screws(just two of them) that are in the plate(DO NOT REMOVE JUST LOOSEN) and slide the metal plate over some just enough to fit snug...NOT TOO TIGHT... if its seems to sew too tight loosen it a bit It worked for me, GOOD LUCK
