My needle arm is stuck in the down position, won't raise manually. Newbie

Not knowing the brand and model of your machine makes diagnosis difficult. In most machines that have the bobbin case inserted from the front, you can try releasing the bobbin case and removing it. When my machine jams, removing the bobbin case releases all those threads that are twisted and knotted inside that are "holding the needle captive."

Why is the fabric not feeding forward when stitching

on the front of the machine there is a lever/knob that sets the stitch size
if it is in the middle position ,the teeth will just go up and down and not back and forward
check that setting
it is used to seal of the threads when starting to sew and when finishing
start the sew for about 1/2" then reverse the feed then go forward again to complete the sewing
at the end of the sew do the same thing again before cutting the threads
this locks the threads as a knot so that the seam will not come undone

Does anybody having problem with the machine ? Because whenever i try to sew it keep jamming ? Is there anyway I can fix or whatever ?

Change everything! Rewind the bobbin with new thread and correctly...the thread should be evenly distributed on the bobbin and wound on slowly or it will be too tight. Use a new needle and be sure it is facing the correctly and not backwards ( needles have a front and back). Clean out the bobbin case with the little pipe cleaner brush. Rethread the machine and make sure it hits all the stations ( uptake lever, tension discs, etc...) and make sure the thread is unwinding in the correct direction( clockwise on some machines and counterclockwise on others) check the manual. Exhausting but usually works! Good luck!

Janome dc630 cobbling on bottom

Generally this is caused by upper tension problems. The tension is not pulling back the upper thread after the hook has rotated. This is typically caused by one of two things.
1. Incorrect threading, where the thread has bypassed either the tension discs or the take-up lever. Completely unthread the machine and start from scratch. Sounds silly but it often resolves an unseen problem with the threading.
2. The next most common is a build up of lint and/or wax between the tension disks preventing them from closing properly on the thread and allowing the thread to feed into the machine in an unregulated manner. Lift the presser foot to release the tension, unthread the machine. Fold a piece of cloth in half and place the folded side into the tension discs, then lower the presser foot. Draw the cloth backward and forward a few times, then raise the presser foot and remove the cloth. Rethread and try again.

If the problem persists you may need to take it to your local service centre to have the tension area cleaned and adjusted.

Everytime I go to sew the thread always knots up

Likely your upper thread tension is too light and/or the proper thread routing is not right on the machine. Your bobbin might also be wound backwards.

My machine is not catching the thread around the bobbin holder

It sounds like you have a thread jam. Depending on the machine there may be lever that will release the bobbin shuttle, and another 2 levers to release the cover plate. Pay attention to positioning so you can put it back together. Remove the shuttle, then the bobbin cover and see if there are any knots of thread getting in the way.

How adjust bottom tension on this as it keeps knotting up?

If your top thread is knotting up in bobbin area, your top thread is mis-threaded, possibly out of take-up lever or tension disks need cleaning/adjusting.

Showing E6

You receive the error message E6 when the motor locked up because thread is tangled or the machine is seizing up.

Remove the tangled thread, it it still happens that means your machine is seizing and requires service.

Cant get my bobbin in right position it keeps knotting up on inside of fabric

Top thread problem, Not enough tension on top=loops on the bottom of the fabric; too little tension on the bottom = loops on top of the fabric. Yes, I know it seems backwards. See:
Dollars to donut holes, you either threaded the top of the machine with the presser foot down (it has to be UP to let the thread into the top tension), or you're trying to sew with the presser foot still up (which is an issue common to people trying to sew bulky seams).

Take the thread off the top of the machine, take out the bobbin case and give the machine a cleaning, rethread the machine, fetch up the bobbin thread and hold the bobbin and top thread ends together under and behind the presser foot for the first 2-3 stitches of each seam.

I have a newish 2nd hand dc3050. The needle keeps coming unthreaded. Any ideas?

Have you got the thread through the take up lever correctly? If its not threaded this will cause the needle thread to be pulled backwards. Just recheck all the threading paths from spool to needle have been done correctly.
