You need to ask Janome these questions, rather than Fixya I think. The plastic bobbin in the plastic bobbin holder does make a little bit of noise but I don't find it problematic.

Providing you are using "Janome" plastic bobbins and are putting them in rotating the right way, as per the little image on the clear cover, there is no reason that the thread cutter should be dislodging the bobbin. When I use the thread cutter, my bobbin turns as thread is drawn off it, but it doesn't move upwards.

Sounds like you have already replaced the black plastic bobbin holder, is that what you mean by "Shuttle"??

My 6500 has had 2 replacement bobbin holders as I keep striking it with the needle during jam ups, which caused plastic burrs on it. On the 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 seems to be working at holding the bobbin holder in place better. Haven't had a big jam up since he fitted it. But before this, I would dislodge the bobbin holder with a small jam, and then it would just jam and jam until I removed the needle plate with the screwdriver, removed the bobbin and bobbin holder, cleaned out all the thread fragments, then replaced the bobbin holder back into the correct position lining up the two red arrows. Then replaced the needle plate and rethreaded. I learnt to modify my sewing expectations and not try to sew really thick seams as this will just dislodge the bobbin holder again. Jeans hems were always my problem seam, I use a "Seam Jumper" now to handle going from thin to thick seam, and so far, so good.

So I would suggest you ring Janome in Akld and talk to their technical advisor a bit, describing your problem. They may suggest sending it to them for a check out to establish what is going wrong.

If you have trouble describing the issue to then you could always film it with a digital camera and send the file to them.

My only other thought is how you wind the bobbins. It is really important to wind the bobbin smoothly and evenly top and bottom, my 6500 will wind all in the middle if I let it just run, so I always wind carefully and give the thread a nudge with my fingertip to ensure it fills evening top, middle and bottom. But it sounds like you are an experienced sewer and know this already.

I'd say ring Janome and have a chat, I find if you keep your approach friendly and neutral rather than "I've never got on with this machine" that you may get some help from them at resolving this issue.

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.

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.

Hello dear


have you tried changing the needle?
have you tried adjusting the top thread tension?
it might be the needle and the thread are not compatable,, the needle may be to light for the thread.
if the suggestions don't help, sew on the sewing machine till it makes the loop and then stop the machine and take it to the repair man and let him see the loop and then ask him why it's making the loop.

You can puchase them from this link

Janome have one standard plastic bobbin that fits almost all their models except
1600P, 1600P-DB, 1600P-DBX and MB4.
So if you see packets of plastic "Janome" bobbins for sale they will be the right ones.

What type of bobbin should I use in my Memorycraft 4000.. Plastic or metal..I have been using metal, is this ok?


You should be using plastic bobbins for the MC4000, see: http://content.janome.com/index.cfm/Machines/Accessories/All/Bobbin_-_Plastic . Usually the machine comes with a handful of the correct size and type bobbins. Using the wrong bobbin could result in the needle hitting the bobbin and damage may occur. (Broken needles are the most likely possibility; damage to the bobbin case or timing could occur and would require the machine be serviced.)

When you buy more bobbins, make sure that they are labeled for Janome or a machine that takes the same size bobbin. See this site for a list of machines that also take this size bobbin: http://www.sewingmachinesplus.com/102261103%20-20pk.php

I hope this helps.

When you put in the bobbin case, be sure to press it in firmly until you hear it click into place. If you can't press very firmly, or are afraid of hurting your machine, simply lift the latch from the bobbin case, holding it open while you firmly insert the case into the machine. Then release the latch. You should be good to go. Hope this helps!

Re: possible solution for the 9000 errors.


Ohhhhhhh yes,

Clean under and around the bobbin case regularly.....my wife has a small brush to hand, and does it at every bobbin change.

The quilters of the world need to be especially vigilant, as the wadding and layers generate lint at a remarkable pace.

As to bobbins, they do vary from brand to brand, diameter and height, so this can be an annoying apparently "intermittent" problem if you happen to have a few different brands kicking around.........I had one customer who had me on 3 house calls before I realised that she had been collecting blinkin' bobbins where and whenever !!

Another thing with the brown magnetic donut in the middle of your white hook race.........best to use Janome plastic bobbins to avoid any other troubles, rather than the older metal bobbins.

Glad it all went well.

Cheers

Problem sitching


I had this problem when I mixed my singer bobbins with my Janome bobbins. Are you using flat bobbins or rounded ones? If they are rounded, they are your problem. Only flat bobbins work in Janome machines.
