Question about Janome Harmony 2041

1 Answer

My Janome Harmony 2049 was sewing beautifully and all the sudden something POPPED. The needle will barely go up or down and I cannot get it to release.

I bought this machine used and I do not have an owners Manuel. I took the housing off the light/needle are and do not see anything broken, but without a manuel, I'm just not sure what the problem is. Until this incident, the machine was working perfectly - I've been sewing all day.

I bought my machine last yr & just started using it 2 days ago. Now it's acting up? The needle is hitting the bobbin plate. I've notice this is a common thing to happen to other confidence owners.

Sounds like the needle is bent. If it hits the plate just once it will blunt the needle and not sew properly. Failing that, the machine's timing may be off. Was it shifted about a lot in the year it was left in the box?

GC 500/550 not pulling bobbin thread. My wife has used the machine several times without issue, the last time she broke a needle sewing some denim, we found most of the needle but could not find it all,...

some sewing machines can not sew denim good,
here are some suggestions
since a needle was broken & replaced--if the needle has a flat side it goes to the back of the machine
make sure the needle is inserted correctly & pushed up inside of the needle holder & the needle screw tightened correctly
is the correct needle being used for the thread & fabric being sewed?
when sewing denim, a denim needle is needed, I usually purchase mine at walmart, I have 2 necchi sewing machines & the denim needles work just fine on my machines.

if none of the above suggestions help then the machine could be out of time, just because of a broken needle. only a repair shop has the correct tool to fix this problem

My needle threader on my Baby Lock Esante has stopped doing its job. Anything that I can do to fix it?

Is it not coming down to the needle or is it just not going through the eye of the needle? My mother bent her's once and I have to adjust the position of the needle just right to get mine to work. There is also a chance that the little hook itself has been bent or even broke. It's so small that it can be hard to see. My grandmother broke her's after several years. She couldn't figure out why it stopped working and took her "baby" to get a "check up". They told her that the hook had broken just enough to not hook the thread.
If you bought it from a baby lock dealer there is a life time warranty on it. If not it shouldn't cost much to have serviced.
Hope this helps.

Needle broken in the needle-slot

Can you please tell me what brand name and model the machine? I need to determine how the needle is normally held in place and how you usually release the needle. I have a couple of ideas but having a little bit better picture of the needle holder will help me provide you the best solution. Thanks
