Try ebay for the parts you need

make sure the needle is the right one for the fabric being sewed

make sure the top thread has not come off the thread take up lever

try a different bobbin---make sure it's turned the right way in the
bobbin case--and if it's a front or side loading bobbin,,make sure
the bobbin case is inserted correctly

if none of my suggestion help then I suggest having the machine
checked for a timing problem.

SOURCE: thread bunching underneath fabric as I sew.

You may need to take off the housing that covers the whole dog mechanism. You will need a screwdriver to do this. Blow out the area around the tension gears and dogs, check for loose or disconnedted parts, and re-oil the gears. Fleece fuzz usually collects where you can't see it. This was the problem with my machine that had the same symptom.

SOURCE: looping underneath

I watched a 'You Tube' demo that showed ........if you loosen or tighten the very small screw at the base of the bobbin this gives you the correct tension & stops the looping under the fabric........I didn't even know this screw existed ! It is trial & era at first re the correct tension but you do get there.... the art is to do it in small mini you hardly move it ! Thanks to 'You Tube' I can now get on and finish my drapes !

SOURCE: Needle thread looping underneath, threads not interlocking at all

If the machine is now threaded, lift the presser foot.

Now, pull about 10" of thread through the needle.

The next time you thread the machine, lift the presser foot first.

When the presser foot is up, the tension control opens and allows the thread to "seat" into the control, then when the foot is down the control closes to the indicated setting.

When threading the machine with the foot is down, thread does not enter the tension control and when you start to sew, there is no tension on the thread.

No tension = loosey, goosey, loopy stitches underneath.

Because the lack of tension on the top thread, the bobbin thread cannot lock a proper stitch.

This is a top tension issue, you need to check two things,

-make sure you thread the machine with the pressure foot up ( this allows the tension discs to open up so you can pull the fabric away from the machine with the foot up and allows the thread to get to bottom of the tension discs)

-make sure your tension settings are set to the medium setting. (Usually 4 or 5)

If this still does not help, then turn the top tension knob up (from 5 to 6,7,8,9....)

-If that still doesn't do it, your probably need the tensions reset, and your local family sewing store will be able to assist you further.

New home sewing machine is not picking the bobbing thread SL2022.did the adjustment,cleaned up,oil too,still skips when I sewing ,but now is not sewing at all

Install a different brand new needle.

If that doesn't work, the timing is probably off. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

Hello, I have an older Janome model Harmony 2049, it stopped sewing in the middle of the project. The machine makes the noise like it needs a little push to start sewing, but that is all it does. I took it...

Sounds like the lubricants may have "seized". Has this been in for a COA (clean/oil/adjust, aka sewing machine tuneup) in the last year or so?

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!

New Home Model NH 2014lLE. Stopped working

something is jammed further then you can see. stop. be patient here. if unplugging and plugging it back on does not fix. just take a deep breath, you do not want it to break. its just a machine. i would suggest taking it to a shop to see if they can clear your jam by an adjustment, for free at your local store. or a tune up of $50.00 bucks . this machine is well worth it! its a bizarre thing that has happened, but to force it you could really hurt it more then you know.

Shuttle alignment and assembly

The shuttle/race/bobbin system shouldn't really be taken apart by the average user. Unfortunately, your chances of ever getting it back together properly so the machine will sew (this is the timing of the machine) are very slim. You'll need to take it to a sewing machine technician. I would recommend an authorized Pfaff tech as they'll be sure to have the proper tools to do this correctly - won't be inexpensive but will be worth it. Most "neighborhood sewing machine repair folks" don't have experience on computer machines. Resetting timing on a computer machine isn't the same as the old mechanicals and requires some expertise.
