Re: Machine is locked up

When you say you can't get the arm to move are you talking about the needle bar, if this is the case the chances are if you broke the needle there may be a piece stuck in the bobbib case area but can you be a bit more explicit. Thanks Ken

Oily cotton when stitching

Oily Cotton:
1. Remove the bobbin case.
2. Wipe out the oil.
3. Bobbin case rides unto an area that looks like a race track. (Called Race). Wipe out oil.
4. After cleaning oil out take a drop and place unto race.
5. Replace bobbin. (Wipe oil if there is any.)
6. Remove oil from the needle arm. (Goes up and down holding unto the needle.)
7. Replace a small amount of oil on the needle arm.
The sewing the machine should sew very well. It may have some resistance when you turn the hand wheel by hand. Likely, this is due to the machine being new and not being broke in. Otherwise, it would need to be lubricated throughout the machine. Give it while!

Needle locked in right position


Remove the needle holder using a tool suitable for it and remove the needle and fix it again in the correct position and continue the stitching in zig zag .

Main motor lock, inappropriate needle position, after broken needle

The broken needle may be lodged in the bobbin housing. If you cannot locate, take it in for professional servicing. You may have put the timing out of whack.

Motor is locked up

when the needle broke it could have caused the machine to just time, it would be a good idea to have the machine checked at a sewing machine shop...

Janome 1600p-DBX is not taking the bobbin

have you checked to see if the needle is inserted correctly into
the needle clamp,,all the way up into the needle clamp
& that the needle is turned the right way
also check to make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the
bobbin case.
if you have checked for this then the following is possible
it's very possible that when you broke the needle that it caused
the machine to jump time, & it would have to be taken to a sewing
machine shop to be retimed.

Can you see the feed dogs moving?

un thread, raise the pressure foot then manually turn the flywheel towards you and watch the feed dogs (the teeth that move under the needle plate). If they are not moving around and coming up above the needle plate then one of two things:
either you've accidentially disengaged the feed dogs, check the manual for instructions to reengage, sometimes a knob, button or slide, often on the front base or around the back of the free arm.

If they are engaged but not moving up at all, then something has gone in the drive to them, usually a gear in the free arm area. In which case, take to the shop for repair.
