Question about Janome Memory Craft Compulock

Not shure you can embroider on an MC4000, i think this is only a sewingmachine.
But to change presser fot:
If it a "snap on" foot, when foot lifted, press the "button" on the back of the needle bar (on the bottom) this would release the presser foot.
If is a large foot, you have to unscrew the screw on the left side of the needlebar, and change the whole foot.

It sounds like the tension setting is too tight. The tension mechanism consists of two metal disks; the thread runs between these disks. When the pressure foot is down, the disks come together, trapping the thread between them. When the pressure foot is up, the disks separate and the thread can flow freely. (BTW, this is why you adjust the tension with the pressure foot down.)
Take a look at your tension setting and try loosening it. That should resolve the problem.
Let me know if this helps, ok?

Not unless the model you are using has more than one height adjustment. This would be addressed in the instruction manual for the machine.
If you raise the heigth of the presser foot too much, the tension control will open and the thread will not form a proper stitch - you will get a loopy stitch that will not hold.
Intersecting seams where you may have 8 layers of fabric can be flatten somewhat with a nylon hammer, or lay a cloth over the seam and use a regular hammer.
I use this when hemming jeans - the flat-feld seams are super thick when turned under for hemming.
Use a longer stitch length when sewing thick fabrics.
Make a sample, replicating what you will be sewing to test techniques and adjustments to the machine before sewing your project.
