How to thread a Janome/New Home XR-VII

Hi I just bought a Janome XR-VII from an op shop (in Australia) and can't quite figure how to thread it (what looks good doesn't run smooth but builds tension on the thread. The bobbin runs smooth. nothing seems jammed or tight when the needle is not threaded. I can spool up a bobbin ok too.

I don't much about this at all - had my step-mother and sister look at the machine over Christmas. The info above is their summary. I can't find a manual for this online - except maybe from the UK, but with exchange rates it is an expensive way to even find out if the machine is worth keeping.

So... does anyone know the correct way to thread up this model? I'm happy to buy a manual once I know the machine is worth keeping.

Cheers

try changing the needle
rethread the machine top & bobbin
make sure to use every thread guide
make sure the bobbin is not over wound
make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case
make sure the bobbin is not warped or damaged
if you've done all these things then it's also possible that the machine
is out of time & needs to be checked at a repair shop

Is it a new needle? a dull needle or one with a burr on it can cause those problems that you mention.The kind of needle you use is also very important. I like to use a 70/10 or 80/12 jeans needle depending on how thick the thread is.
