Try changing the bobbin and see if that helps

there is something wrong with the hook and hook race

SOURCE: Top thread won't pick up the bobbin thread

re insert the needle, maybe you did not put the needle up as far as it is to go. Make sure the flat side of the needle is to the back of the machine. Without any thread in the machine hand turn the wheel and look to see if the hook of your bobbin would/could catch the thread (to see if timing is right)
then thread the machine and hand turn the wheel and see what it is doing.
Your timing might be off, but I do not think that is likely. Though it is possible that when the needle fell out, it hit something hard, broke, and pushed the machine out of timing. then you need to bring it in.

SOURCE: I have a janome 8050

The key to proper stitches is that tension on the bobbin must equal the tension on the upper thread spool as well. The bobbin has a tension screw that may have come loose or the thread is not properly in the tensioner. For example, the bobbin could be in backwards. Or the tension of the top could be too light and allowing the tension on the bottom to pull the thread down too much.
Open the bobbin tray and watch while you slowly rotate the hand control to see it make a stitch.
You will probably be able to figure out what is wrong.

I recently had my New Home 7500 serviced. It now has a rattle in the bobbin area as it sews. Sewing is fine unless I speed up then it might thread jam.


contact the one who serviced it and tell them that the machine is making rattling noise which it didn't do before and see what they say

Bobbin case


Try these suggestions


1. Change the needle--use a needle that's for the fabric being sewed


2. Rethread the machine--top --make sure to use every thread guide


3. try a different bobbin--make sure bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case, & make sure the bobbin is turned the correct way in the bobbin case


4. make sure the thread has not come off the thread take up lever


5. Clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or threads


6. Check to make sure the bobbin is not warped or damaged


7. Make sure the bobbin case is correctly in the machine,, if it's a top loading bobbin you may need to have the bobbin case checked to see if it's damaged or see if the hook and hook race has a problem


8. Also could be a timing problem, and the machine would need to be checked.

I am having a problem with my Janome Decor Excel 5018. It was working fine, until the bobbin thread won't gather with the top thread. And the top thread is binding up underneath the fabric. Kim


try a new needle

rethread the machine top & bobbin, that way you make sure the thread is not caught anywhere

make sure the bobbin is correctly inserted in the machine

clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for loose thread & lint

always keep a long thread tail of 3 to 5 inches long, & keep the tails pulled back behind the needle
before sewing

if none of these things help the problem,, then it may need to be serviced

The bobbin (or bobbin case) rattles while sewing.


Do you have the right size bobbin inserted? Is the case inserted correctly? If these are not the problem, I would call Janome and find out what is causing this if it has just started.

Check the manual for maintenance infromation.

Noise can be from lint in the bobbin area.

After cleaning, re-thread the machine with the presser foot up to see the combination of cleaning and "presser foot up" threading helps.
