You should be able to use a small paperclip in the very small hole on it. If you still have your box that it came in there is a pin in there for it.

Why does the speed of my machine change by it self?

Faulty foot pedal control. If you can take it apart you can lubricate the rheostat with 3 in 1 oil. If not, you buy a new one.

How do I thread it?

    Unwind about 18" or so of thread and bring it around the backside of the bobbin winder tension disc, wind it around the tension disc one time. Some machines might have a thread guide before this step- if yours does, don't skip it! Be sure to place your thread through all the threadguides on your machine. 3.Jul 20, 2015

1. Newer machines are more difficult. You will have to find the hidden screws behind little plugs. You just pull out the plugs using a very thin screwdriver.
2. The next trick is to pull the machine apart. Their are snaps to unsnap by pulling. Pull a little on areas to see where the snap areas are holding parts tightly together. You will have to pull hard to get these areas unsnapped. You will get it but it takes a little work. Don't pry with your screwdriver or you will ruin the appearance.
3. The older machines are easier. Just unscrew and the parts come apart.
4. Whichever you are working on use some masking tape to mark the screws or hold the screws in the holes they come out of. If you don't do this you may have a problem when it comes time to reassemble.

Machine is binding up

New needle, right way around, and thread again from scratch, manual in hand. Make sure you're threading with the presser foot up. Raise the bobbin thread. Start each and every seam thus:
1. Place the work under the needle. Use the handwheel or needle up/down function to drop the needle into the fabric.
2. Drop the presser foot.
3. Hold the bobbin and top thread ends together and take about 3 stitches.
4. Drop the thread ends and sew normally. See also: last pair of photos.

27 - Complete Tension Unit
28 - Setscrew TP 3 X 6
29 - Hexagonal socket screw 4 X 6

There is no exploded view for this component, so if you cannot confidently restore the unit, suggest seeing a technician, and the next time you take something apart, use a camera for reference, and lay components out carefully as they come apart.even write notes for yourself.

Hope this is helpful, it is the best image available in the Janome Manuals.

My seams pull apart

Sounds like a tension issue.

Check your tension units and thread guides are clean and free of lint....a rag moistened with methylated spirit (denatured, surgical etc) run between the disks will help.

Normal factory tension setting = 3 for all dials although resetting this style of tension unit is, frankly, awkward, so if it ends up being other than 3, don't worry too much, just write it down somewhere handy.

Start with all at tension 3 and try using 4 different colours of thread and sew a scrap to see the balance of the tensions to more easily locate any that are loose.

Ideally, the 2 needle threads should appear as secure dots not at all "loopy", while the looper threads should meet neatly at the edge and be a firm join without pulling at the edge on one side or the other.

Get the needle threads right first, then small adjustments to balance the looper threads....after a few adjustments you will probably have it back to normal.

If you want any more help with this, just drop a line through the "Contact Us" page at
