Noise from bobbin case on new Janome 4020

I have just bought a Janome 4020. I tried the different stitches, when I used the overcast foodt it started making loops on the top-side of the material and it started to clunk. I adjusted the tension. Then the thread wouldn't come freely .

So... I rethreaded it, took out the spool and cleaned the casing. It doesn't clunk exactly but is quite noisy, just like an old Singer. Can you tell me what it might be??
Many thanks

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.

This attaches to my bobbin case in Janome new home ml3023 sewing machine. It has stopped stitches forming since the small part (like a curvy d) has snapped. What is this part and can I order it?


If the part actually attaches to the bobbin case, you might try purchasing a replacement bobbin case for your machine. If it's attached to something else in the bobbin area, you may need to take it to a sewing repair shop to see if they can get the part for you or repair it.

I have a a Janome 6260. The thread eVentually splits in half, then breaks. This problem is worse when I use decorative stitching


I'm going to guess on this one; if your stitches are even (no bunching or pulling), you might have a build up of thread somewhere in the machine. Take out the bobbin and, if possible, the bobbin casing and check for any tangled or loose threads. Second guess, check the feeder on top of the machine, thread may be working its way into and catching on that feeder... be very careful when threading through the feeder because thread will often catch. If neither of these 'fixes' work, might be time to take the machine in for a cleaning and tuneup.

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.

Just borrowed a friends machine but no instructions for threading cotton from top to needle and how to put in spool.Have got thread on spool.Just need to sew a basic hem


You haven't said what mail and model machine this relates to.

You could try http://sewing.about.com/od/sewingmachineindex/tp/operatingasewingmachine.htm, there is lots of good general information there which might be of help, most machines have similar functionality, ie a bobbbin goes into a rotary hook and there will be a tension spring on that thread. Top thread will also need to go through tension device, usually discs in the threading path from spool to needle.

There is usually a stitch length and stitch width dial/knob/digital selection and a stitch selector for different utility stitches such as blind hem, overcasting etc. If you just want a straight stitch, then stitch length would be 2.5 or 2.7 maybe for a heavy fabric.

You need to put in the correct sized needle for the fabric you at sewing too, http://sewing.about.com/od/sewingmachineindex/ig/Sewing-Machine-Needles/

Important thing is threading up so that both threads are under tension, make sure the pressure foot is raised during threading so the top thread can go between the tension discs. The bobbin will either be drop in top loading in which case you need to click the thread into a tension spring on the side of the bobbin holder. Or front loading bobbin inside a removeable bobbin case which is mounted vertically. The bobbin case will also have a tension spring on it.

Also you could try You-tube - there is lots of videos there for different brands.
