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

Hi I am having problems with the top tension on my Singer 2662. I am following the instruction manual but nothing I seem to try works. Or it works for a while and then the next time I sew I have problems...


I would suggest that you revisit the threading up in your manual and double check that the top thread is under tension.

However, if the stitiching on top of the fabric is wonky, this is your bottom tension too loose, and if stitching on the the underside of the fabric is loose, its the top tension causing it.

Quite often bobbin winding can be the cause of bad stitching so pull out the manual and wind a bobbin carefully following the instructions, making sure that the thread is under gentle tension as it winds. What you don't want is for the thread spool to bounce around as it unwinds onto the bobbin as this gives uneven tension of the thread and when you then stitch a seam, the thread relaxes in different amounts causing puckering.

So wind at 3/4 speed, and gently guide the thread onto the bobbin so it fills evenly across the whole core. And ensure there is tension on via a tension guide if your machine has one. If not, then place the curved handle of your scissors onto the top of the thread spool and hold it there as you wind, which holds the spool down and keeps the thread coming off it smoothly.

Always raise the pressure foot when you thread the machine so the top thread goes into tension fully. And new needle for each new sewing job is really important, make sure it is the right size and type of needle for the fabric you are sewing. if you aren't sure what size is right www.sewing.about.com has great tips and general machine info, plus needle guides.

The top thread won't catch the bobbin thread to pull it through. It almost seems like it doesn't go around to pick it up. Or is the bobbin thread supposed to pop up more for pick up? This is my Mom's...


check the needle to see if it's damaged
have a thread tail for the top thread & bobbin thread of 3-4 inches
try this & see if it helps you
make sure there's a 3-4 inch bobbin thread then, hold the top thread tail (3-4 inches) with your fingers away from the needle & then use the handwheel on the right side of the machine & lower the needle down into the bobbin area & see if it pick up the bobbin thread that way
make sure there's no lint or loose threads in bobbin area

I have a singer 6202 sewing machine and I need to know how to attach the walking foot for quilting. thanks


You have to unscrew the presser foot, then attach the WF, using the same screw.

Make sure the lever on the WF rests on top of the needle bar clamp.

Some WF have a two prong lever and this fits around the needle clamp like a lobster claw.

My walking foot for my 8000 is starting to click and the fabric is puckering and the needle is falling out if I don't constantly check the black screw.....Is there something I can adjust? Thanks and have...


Sometimes the WF bar that sets across the needle bar will cause the screw to loosen and this is due to the vibration caused by the WF.

Why the clicking and puckering - take the WF off and see if there is a part that has come "dislocated".

If the machine sews okay without the WF, you may need to replace the WF.

I can not keep the needle threaded. as soon as I start to sew the thread comes out. Please help


Hi. Never had this one happen to me, but be sure that you have at least 3 inches of thread pulled through the needle. If there isn't enough thread pulled through the needle, the first stitch can pull it out.

Let me know if this works, ok?

Stop motion knob won't tighten


Remove the stop motion wheel and you will see another part that is loose(looks kind of like a washer with ears on it). Reposition this on the shaft and put the stop motion wheel back on. The stop motion wheel was too loose and it allowed the washer to fall off the shaft. The screw is nice to have and it keeps the washer from falling off the shaft but it's not absolutely necessary to use the machine. Just be caredul when winding the bobbin.
