Question about Janome 1600P-DB Mechanical Sewing Machine
When I sew, my stictches on the back of the fabric is fine for a while then my needle thread is looping (on the back of the fabric). Would this be a tension problem even though it is fine for a while? This is a newer machine.
It sounds as though the thread is jumping out of the tension assembly. The next time this happens, do not raise the presser foot before you do the following.Cut the thread above the needle and pull on it.If it is working properly there will be tension on it.If it is not working properly, the thread will pull through very easily.If the thread is coming out of the tension , either it isn't threaded correctly or you may need to wrap the thread around the bobbin winder guide to keep it from coming out.If you wrap it around the bobbin winder guide reduce the tension to around 2 , 3 or even less.
Hope this helps.
