SOURCE: Janome MC11000 - my bobbin case becomes dislodged

My bobbin case was jumping all the time...had it in for repairs and would bring it home and even though the tech had attached a test sew piece with different colored bobbin and top thread I could not get it to sew without the bobbin jumping. I thought that he had lied about that being sewn on this machine...finally, I found that you should start with plenty of thread in your hand when threading machine...so that once you feel it click into the tension...DO NOT PULL the thread, it pops it out of the tensioner...just loosely thread and hold tension with your thumb and forefinger while using the needle threader.

Janome Memory Craft 7700qcp looking to buy more bobbins. Is their any difference between bobbin item# 200-122-005 and item# 200-122-647?


You need to check the specifications to see if your machine model is listed for the particular bobbins. If not, then don't buy them.

FWIW, it appears your machine takes Class 15 plastic bobbins, which should be easy to find at the local Janome shop, fabric store...or order online:

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

My janome 625e came with one metal. Do I need to use metal or can I use plastic


Are you talking about feet or bobbins? Did you buy the machine new? Do you have a manual?
In my experience of this type of machine, the bobbins were plastic

Janome have one standard plastic bobbin that fits almost all their models except
1600P, 1600P-DB, 1600P-DBX and MB4.
So if you see packets of plastic "Janome" bobbins for sale they will be the right ones.

You need to ask Janome these questions, rather than Fixya I think. The plastic bobbin in the plastic bobbin holder does make a little bit of noise but I don't find it problematic.

Providing you are using "Janome" plastic bobbins and are putting them in rotating the right way, as per the little image on the clear cover, there is no reason that the thread cutter should be dislodging the bobbin. When I use the thread cutter, my bobbin turns as thread is drawn off it, but it doesn't move upwards.

Sounds like you have already replaced the black plastic bobbin holder, is that what you mean by "Shuttle"??

My 6500 has had 2 replacement bobbin holders as I keep striking it with the needle during jam ups, which caused plastic burrs on it. On the last service the technician added a little piece that is a janome "after sale replacement" part. It is slightly longer than the standard part, and is a little metal bit on the left hand side of the rotary hook area which seems to be working at holding the bobbin holder in place better. Haven't had a big jam up since he fitted it. But before this, I would dislodge the bobbin holder with a small jam, and then it would just jam and jam until I removed the needle plate with the screwdriver, removed the bobbin and bobbin holder, cleaned out all the thread fragments, then replaced the bobbin holder back into the correct position lining up the two red arrows. Then replaced the needle plate and rethreaded. I learnt to modify my sewing expectations and not try to sew really thick seams as this will just dislodge the bobbin holder again. Jeans hems were always my problem seam, I use a "Seam Jumper" now to handle going from thin to thick seam, and so far, so good.

So I would suggest you ring Janome in Akld and talk to their technical advisor a bit, describing your problem. They may suggest sending it to them for a check out to establish what is going wrong.

If you have trouble describing the issue to then you could always film it with a digital camera and send the file to them.

My only other thought is how you wind the bobbins. It is really important to wind the bobbin smoothly and evenly top and bottom, my 6500 will wind all in the middle if I let it just run, so I always wind carefully and give the thread a nudge with my fingertip to ensure it fills evening top, middle and bottom. But it sounds like you are an experienced sewer and know this already.

I'd say ring Janome and have a chat, I find if you keep your approach friendly and neutral rather than "I've never got on with this machine" that you may get some help from them at resolving this issue.

What type of bobbin should I use in my Memorycraft 4000.. Plastic or metal..I have been using metal, is this ok?


You should be using plastic bobbins for the MC4000, see: http://content.janome.com/index.cfm/Machines/Accessories/All/Bobbin_-_Plastic . Usually the machine comes with a handful of the correct size and type bobbins. Using the wrong bobbin could result in the needle hitting the bobbin and damage may occur. (Broken needles are the most likely possibility; damage to the bobbin case or timing could occur and would require the machine be serviced.)

When you buy more bobbins, make sure that they are labeled for Janome or a machine that takes the same size bobbin. See this site for a list of machines that also take this size bobbin: http://www.sewingmachinesplus.com/102261103%20-20pk.php

I hope this helps.
