Question about Janome Sewing Machines
Machine works but threads are not sewing together. Needle goes in and out of fabric but the threads remain separate.
Try a new needle
rethread the machine top and bobbin
make sure the bobbin is inserted into the bobbin case correctly
also could be a timing problem

If you have the machine threaded correctly, and are absolutely sure. New needles installed and it still does not sew, you most definitely have a timing problem. You should take to a qualified service center to be properly timed.

Make sure you have threaded the machine from right to left, it sounds like the needle thread is trapped under the lower looper thread and cannot form a stitch.........start the threading over from scratch like this:
Follow that slowly and carefully to make sure you have not missed any thread guides on the way, as each one needs to be followed through to ensure correct tension and thread progression.
If you are certain that all threaded correctly, did you have a fabric jam and pulled it loose ? If so, the timing may well be affected.
Post an update and we'll get this right.

SOURCE: Not picking up the Bobbin thread
I cleaned the machine good with canned air, oiled it. I took out the bobbin case and cleaned it good also. I then noticed the tension screw on the bobbin case was loose, tightened it and the problem was fixed.
