Question about Janome Sewist 500 Sewing Machine
Could you be bumping it while sewing? Have someone watch while you sew. Otherwise, assuming this is a newish machine, I'd complain to Janome customer service and tell them it's been in for repair 3x and you'd like a replacement machine. You may need to be persistent, but I would definitely ask for that if I were in your shoes.

SOURCE: Changing stitches
You probably have not adjusted you stitch width and length.
Also a manual for this machine is currently being sold on Ebay for $4+. Probably would be a good investment for you.

The machine is skipping stitches and is probably out of time. Change the needle, rethread the machine and try it again. If it still skips stitches, try lowering the needle by about 1/16 inch and see if it works better. If the timing is off you should take it to a technician for a complete service.

SOURCE: Zigzag won't enlarge
See if there is a twin needle lock out setting, if it is on it will cause this symptom. Otherwise there may be a bind in the needle pivot or linkage system to the needle bar from the cam or stepper motor (I don't know if this is a mechanical or electronic machine).
