Janome Memor Craft 10001 bobbin tension

The bobbin tension is too loose and I can't fix it by changing the needle tension. Any ideas? Thanks so much.

Hi,

There is an adjustment on the side of the black bobbin case.

Remove the needle plate, to gain access to the case. Lift it out, noting how it is positioned! On the side of it , there are two screws, one is the adjustment screw - its the one that sits out more. To increase tension, turn it clockwise 1/8th of a turn, reassemble and test sew. (make sure the top thread tension is back to where it should be). Repeat if required. DO NOT adjust too much at a time!

Good luck

Adjust thread and bobbin tension


These are the instructions in the manual:
Adjusting the Thread Tension
Balanced thread tension:
Small amount of the needle thread shows on the wrong side of the fabric.
When the needle thread tension is too tight:
The bobbin thread shows on the right side of the fabric. Reduce the tension by turning the tension dial to a lower number.
When the needle tension is too loose:
The needle thread forms loops and the stitches look shaggy.
Increase the tension by turning the dial to a higher number.

However, if you have recently changed the needle check that it is pushed right up in the slot. Other thing that springs to mind is making sure that the bobbin thread is correctly placed in the bobbin, and that the chamber is not full of lint and threads.

I am having trouble with applique on a memory craft janome 4800.


Upper thread breaks
needle may be in backwards
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle, place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side to the back of the machine
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
upper tension may be to tight
the needle may be bent or damaged
thread may be hanging up in bobbin case--check area for loose threads or lint
check for burrs on the needle plate & on the bobbin case

Bobbin not winding tightly


BRAND new Janome 1420qdc. New needle, doesn’t need oil. Will NOT wind a bobbin. Used almost an entire spook of thread doing this. At my wits end. HELP!

Sir I am owning a Janome Memory Craft 10001 but recently it's not working properly in ordinary sewing mode the top side of the fabric the stitch looks okay but underneath it is loose and while embroidering...


Usually If the underneath is loose it is the top tension that is the problem. If it is the top stitching that is loose it is the bottom tension. Hope this helps.

My Janome Memory Craft 4800 is skipping stitches. I've cleaned the bobbin race, replaced the needle and re-threaded both top and bobbin. Any suggestions? it also feels as if the thread is getting caught on...


Hello,

Here are some things to check.

* Thread tension is too tight.
* Needle is bent or blunt.
* Needle is wrong size.
* Needle and thread does not match.
* Light pressure on presser foot.
* Incorrect setting of needle.

I hope this helps you.

Are you checking the simple things such as making sure you have the presser foot up when you thread and the tensions set between 4 and 6, bobbin in the correct way round and tension enough to pull the thread through with some resistence.

Janome Memory Craft 9500 Troubleshooting


Have you tried a new needle?

If re-threading, changing the brand of thread, etc. does not work, then it's likely your machine is out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

Loose stitches every 1


test it out on 2 pieces of material by rotating the wheele by hand. pay close attention to the 1" area. when you turn it by hand you can feel the area of question. is your bobbin spooled correctly. if all fails read the directions.
