Try changing the needles, if that doesn't help then having the machine checked to see the timing is off would be a good idea..

SOURCE: I have a janome 234D

This is a tricky problem, without being in front of the machine.
1. check that thread comes thru machine with ease (pressure foot up)
2. rethread machine starting with lower looper (right hand thread)
3. make sure that when pressure foot is down there is some tension on the thread, (sometimes stuff gets stuck in the tension discs)

4. if that fails, suggest having a repair service check it out for you.

SOURCE: My Janome Harmony 1017 won't

when the fabric does not move then the feed dogs under the needle plate need to be checked to see if there up or down.
if the feed dogs are down then the lever or switch needs to be pushed up into the correct position
if the feed dogs are up & they are not moving the fabric like there suppose to, cause it's there job to move the fabric against the presser foot,, then they need to be check

the gears that do the zig zag stitches should be checked to make sure there not worn & weather they might need be be greased

My Janome Harmony 1017 won't sew all the zigzag stitches. Stitches 5,7 and 8 bog down after just two or three stitches because the fabric isn't moving through the machine. Any suggestions?

I am interested in buying a Janome 525 but want to know if it has a built in overlocker


A sewing machine and an overlocker are two completly different things, but a sewing machine is usually able to do a cover stitch. An overlocker will cut the fabric at the same time, a sewing machine cannot do this.

How do I turn corners with the overlock foot for a Janome 2049?


Sew to the end of the fabric, slowing right down to within a stitch or two of the end, manually turn wheel to complete last two stitches, stop, raise needle, raise presser foot, turn fabric so the back edge of the fabric is just under the needle, drop needle, drop presser foot and resume.
