SOURCE: bobbin jams

This is a common problem with all sewing machines. You must make sure that both needle and bobbin thread are behind the sewing foot and that there is at least 4inches of each thread before you begin stitching. Thread jams can also be caused by improper placement of bobbin in the casing. Place the bobbin in the case so the open side is facing you, the thread end should be on your right, then slide the thread into the opening leaving about 6 inches to pull through. It may look like it should be the other way, but there needs to be some tension. If these solutions do not help, you probably need to have your machine cleaned and adjusted.

I have changed stabalizers and the type of bobbin thread i am using (invisible poly) and it seemd to have solved the problem. Note: wind invisible thread very slowly and carefully it is like fishing line

SOURCE: Bobbin problems

Are you using a size "A" (Class 15) bobbin? If you are using pre-wounds and they are not this size... they will jump around alot. The size of an "L" is very similar, but they are not as tall (height off the table when laying flat on the round side... like when sitting in the bobbin case.) There are tricks to using the thinner bobbins... See if you have a "taller" size "A"/Class 15 and if that corrects the trouble. tjsews2008@gmail.com

SOURCE: janome straight stitch loose

I don't know if this is the right answer for any of you, but thought I'd put my 2 cents worth in. Often this can be the bobbin in backwards. It needs to unwind a certain way depending on the machine. I've heard a phrase for this: Mind your p's and q's which means some wind off to the right like a q, others to the left like a p. Mine has to unwind one way then be slipped backwards into a little slot or it does that loose bottom thread looping and bunching someone here mentioned. It seems everytime I get that problem I rethread the top thread 100 times before it clicks again and I remember it could be the bobbin thread. Either your manual will tell you the correct way, or you could experiment and try one or the other. Once you figure out whether you're a p or a q, mark it on your machien somewhere to remind yourself.

Good Luck and Happy Sewing!

Janome js1008 thread


check to make sure the top thread isn't coming off the thread take up lever
also make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case
make sure the needle is turned the correct way in the needle holder
also try a different bobbin
if none of these suggestions help, then it would be a good idea to have the machine checked for a timing problem

Bobbin case catching thread


I believe that you are talking about the assembly that holds the bobbin case in. The bracket that holds the bobbin case in must be adjusted to allow the upper thread to slide by. Check if the thread will go by this area without "hanging up" while rotating the hand wheel. Also check your bobbin to make sure you have the right one. If it is too high or wide it will definitely be a problem.

Janome memory craft 6500 sewing machine...all of a sudden, the bobbin thread does not attach itself to the needle thread...i have taken off the plate, cleaned out the dust, rethreaded both top and bottom...


Has the bobbin case dislodged and moved? there should be two red marks one on the bobbin case and one on the outer holder, are they lining up? Sometimes as these cases are held by a magnet, they will get dislodged and move slightly, especially in a jam up.
Take out the bobbin case and clean under it, then replace it matching up the red marks.

10_17_2011_5_44_09_am.jpg

If the bobbin case has actaully been struck by the needle during a dislodgement, it may well pierce the bobbin case plastic, look for burring or marks on the outer flange area. If this has occured, the thread may catch on the burr as it comes over the bobbin and jam again.

You can buy a new bobbin case if yours is damaged or maybe just file the burring with an emery board (remove it from the machine first of course).

Lastly, check your needle hasn't been bent, burred, or put in backwards, any of these can prevent a stitch from forming.

If all the above fails, then it is possible that the timing has been knocked out and you will need to get it serviced by a technician.

Janome 6500 jamming - cleaned out bobbin case - no help


Have you removed the bobbin holder and then put it back in lining up the little red markings on the right hand side? If the case has moved slightly then it will keep jamming and the bobbin thread won't clear to form a stitch. The case is held in place by a magnet and a stopper but it will dislodge if you have a bad thread jam, then it keeps happening even if you have removed all the thread because its not in position.

Check this solution for image how to remove and replace the bobbin case. http://www.fixya.com/support/t9289728-bobbin_seems

When you take out the bobbin case, carefully inspect it for any damage and burrs in the black plastic, if there are any then file them carefully out with a nail file or fine sandpaper, a burr will keep catching thread too. Or you may actually need to replace the bobbin holder if it has been pierced by the needle badly, they are about $35 or so.

You may also want to get it serviced. On my 6500 during its last service the technician added a little piece that is a Janome "after sale replacement" part. It is slightly longer than the standard part, and is a little metal bit on the left hand side of the rotary hook area which is holding the bobbin holder in place better. Haven't had a major jam up since this was fitted so you may want to get this fitted on yours too.

I have a Janome Model DC 3018.My problem is that bobbin thread goes around several loops and jams ( it will not come up). What should be done to correct this?


It is probably one of two things, the upper thread is not in the take up lever "this is the lever that moves up and down with the needle and is located at the top pf the machine when the needle is in the up position or the bobbin case is damaged. If the bobbon case is damaged, it neede to be replaced.
Good Luck

I have a Janome DC2007LE sewing machine, I am trying to do a basic zig zag and the upper thread pulls to tight and I have adjusted the tension but it is still pulling the thread to tight and does not look...


Set top tension at 4 for most purposes on this model.
Are you certain that it is threaded correctly and not trapped or double wound on the take up arm or elsewhere ??
Do try a re-thread just to be sure.
Bobbin case may have thread or lint jammed in the spring allowing eased tension below and presenting as increase above.
Check for and clean any lint trapped in the bobbin case.....anatomy of Janome Bobbin Case:
TOP LOADER:
Drop-in Bobbin case will look similar to this image with the tension screw in the middle of the metalwork....

4c76dc1.jpg ...the other screw at one end is holding it all together, so beware....it is not a tragedy to undo the whole lot and clean it, but very gingerly and lay the bits out in sequence and orientation, or you risk tearing your hair out !
