I am not familiar with that model but I suspect it is very similar to any other external tension knob. So go to singer under customer support and download a manual for a 127 or 128, or 66 or 15-91... read about and notice the photos. Understand how they work and apply that knowledge to your machine. ;)

Janome one step Despite altering the tension dial the top thread is looping on underside of material and when pressing the reverse button material puckers.I tried adjusting the tension dial from 0-9


Usually, this occurs because the top thread is not fully seated in the tension disk.

Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Reset your top tension to the midway point and then tweak it.

How do I set the tension on my JANOME 3434D serger?


Begin by setting all 4 dials on "3" which is the default setting on this model (often "5" on other machines). If a beginner, it would be best to thread the machine with four different colour threads according to the colours indicated on the tension dials (yellow, red, blue &green) so that it is easier to see how each thread responds as you adjust the dials. The two lower dials are for the loopers & must be adjusted until the upper & lower loops meet on the cut edge of the fabric - if below the edge: tighten the left dial & loosen the right dial (& visa-versa) just a fraction at a time. The two upper tension dials are for the needles: if too loose, loops form underneath the fabric below each needle, & if too tight the lower threads will show through to the upper side of your fabric where it is pierced by the needle. Good luck!

Advice on how do I adjust tension


I don't have a Janome, but in general
if your seam has extra loops at the top
looks like ^-^-^-^
loosen the upper tension a bit and tighten the bobbin tension a bit.

If the extra loops are at the bottom
sort of like \/-\/-\/-
do the opposite - tighten the upper tension a bit and loosen the bobbin tension a bit.

The upper tension is easy; it's usually a dial with +/- numbers. The bobbin may be more difficult. For mine, it's a screw on the side of the bobbin case. A web search seems to indicate Janome is the same.

Practice on scraps of the same weight and use the same thread you're using on your project until you get the tension right.

good luck

I have looping underneath. Top stitch looks great.


top tension is too loose,check threading up and tension dial. should be on 4-6. read manual and if possible clean tension device. if it is accessible you turn dial to zero and "floss" between tension discs using selvage edge of clean piece of cotton fabric. you can moisten it with denatured alcohol if very dirty. thread sheds dye particles, especially black or cheaper threads. needs to be removed regularly to keep tension discs clean. turn back dial to 5 after and thread up again. often this will resolve the problem

A friend asked me to thread her Janome 352 sewing machine without instruction book. The solution posted assumes that I know what all the parts are but although I have sewed for 30+ years I couldn't...


you can go to www.sewing.about.com and check out Debbie's sewing machines 101 guide. She has images, diagrams and general threading up.

or your friend can purchase a manual from here http://ifixmachines.com/vmchk/Janome-Model-352/Janome-352-Sewing-Machine-Manual/ilvm_fly1_blue.tpl.html


tally_girl_30.jpg looking at this image I would say "raise the pressure foot, take the thread from the spool holder at rear of the machine and take to the left and through the first thread guide (cant see one but there will be) then down the right side of the metal flat thing, through the guide at the bottom, then back up the other side of the metal thing and through the take up lever (turn fly wheel until this is tat its highest point to get access) then back downwards, through the thread eye near lower edge of machine head, then down to the needle bar thread guide and through the needle.

The tension device will be in that top area where the metal piece is and the horizontal white dial on left will be tension control dial.

I hope this helps you and your friend out, 4 thumbs up if so :-)

I am looking for the correct settings for my Singer serger.


The easy way to reset an overlocker (serger) is to ensure the tension units are all clean and lint free, then use a different colour for each looper and needle/s.

Sew a sample, check front and back, make a small adjustment as required, another test, and so on until an even result is achieved.

If the tension dials pop off easily you can then put them back on so they are all on the same setting (Janome uses 3 as their base setting).

If the knob or dial is fixed, just write down the new settings and keep with machine........the lint is important, as it can jam in the tension dials and hold them open, thus reducing tension, so make sure they are CLEAN !!

See-saw a length of clean fabric moistened with methylated (denatured or surgical) spirit between the discs to be certain.
