NEEDLE UP/DOWN BUTTON NOT WORKING

I have a New Home "My Excel 23X" machine and one of the things I loved about it is the up/down needle position button. But now that button doesn't work. Any suggestions on how to fix it myself???

Check with local shops that sell this brand for an owner's manual as there is more you need to know about to use this machine.

Thread bunching on the bottom of My Excel 23X suggestions how to adjust


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

Janome excel 23x sewing machine. How can i get the needle needle up and downto engage, It stopped working in the middle of a project. How do I get it to engage?


IF IT STOPPED WORKING AS IN WOULDN'T GO UP OR DOWN WHILE SEWING THIS IS WHAT I THINK. TURN YOUR HAND WHEEL TOWARDS YOU, FORCEFULLY IF NECESSARY. ONCE THE NEEDLE IS ALL THE WAY UP TAKE YOUR BOBBIN AND CARRIER OUT AND CLEAN THIS AREA AND BLOW IT OUT. PUT A DROP OF SEWING MACHINE OIL ON THE RACE WHERE THE CARRIER SITS. FIRST, CHECK THE TENSION BY HANGING THE BOBBIN AND ADJUST THE THREAD UNTIL IT WILL EXTEND A LITTLE WHEN YOU BOUNCE THE BOBBIN THREAD SOFTLY. AFTER YOU HAVE REPLACED THE CARRIER GO AHEAD AND PLACE THE PLATE ON. NOW, RETURN THE BOBBIN AND BE SURE THAT YOU REPLACE IT WITH THE THREAD GOING AWAY FROM THE BOBBIN CUT. NOW, LOAD YOUR TOP THREAD AND SET THE TENSION AT 3. TEST THIS AND ADJUST THE TOP TENSION AS YOU NEED TO. AFTER YOU ARE HAPPY THEN SEW. GOOD RULE...REPLACE YOUR NEEDLE OFTEN. CLEAN YOUR BOBBIN AREA OFTEN.

New home excel 23x


New Home is one of those machines that has multiple families. I have one that was made by White, and yours appears to be made by Janome. I hope that information can be helpful int he future.
Does the slider seem to be bent in any way? If not, the insides of your machine may be full of bits and pieces of fuzz, lint and thread,, thus forcing the lever to the far right position. I have had that happen with mine. It had to be taken apart and cleaned. I hope you get it going soon! There are some independent repair shops that don't charge a king's ransom for machine repair. I hope you are sewing again soon!

It breaks needles


Put a new needle in. Do not power up the machine. By hand rotate the needle down with the head laying on it's back. With a flashlight watch the needle come through the hole to determine what it is hitting. I've seen (in severe abuse cases) that the needle shaft is bent and the needle hits the bobbin case, instead of just coming down next to it. Use a plyer to carefully bend the shaft back to it's original position. Consew 226R-1 is an excellent machine.

Good Luck!

How do i make the needle stop in the down position instead of the up position? New Home MX3123


You can't - it is only designed to always stop in the up position, then you can manually push the "needle down" button to make the needle go down while you turn a corner. The next model up the 4263 had the "stop down" option. Sorry.
