SOURCE: machine will not pick up bobbin thread

Sounds like your needle is in too far and it not allowing the needle to go down far enough to pick up the thread.

SOURCE: will not pick up bobbin thread

Unusual for this machine. Check to be sure the needle is inserted with the flat side to the back of the machine. If it is, remove the needle plate, bobbin and bobbin case. Turn the hand wheel slowly toward you and see if the point of the hook is above or below the eye of the needle when the hook point is aligned behind the needle. If the eye is above the point of the hook the machine is out of time and best taken to qualified technician.

SOURCE: janome mini not picking up the bobbin thread!

needle in backwards?

SOURCE: I just bought a janome mini sewing machine. I

First, in order to get the bobbin thread up, you have to turn the wheel backward, not forward. If you try this, and it is not the problem, keep going.

Next you need to check the needle. There is a screw on the right side of the needle carriage right underneath the underside of the top...unscrew this and the needle should come right out. The flat side of the needle shank should go towards the back of the machine. If it isn't, switch it so that it is and try again.

If this doesn't solve your problem, what has happened is that the gears in the machine have gotten out of alignment. There is an easy fix:

Take off the plate that covers the bobbin chase...there are two screws one on each side. Remove these...you need a stub screwdriver, because regular ones will not fit under there.

Remove the bobbin carriage and the bobbin, making careful note of how they fit back in. Take a picture before disassembling it so you have a reference.

The part that carries the thread around the bobbin is still in the machine. Turn the wheel and you will see it rotate. What has happened is that the needle is not going down in the machine at the right point because someone kept sewing after it jammed and one gear kept going while the other one didn't and now it is out of alignment. These machines have plastic gears and the can slip past each other if you aren't careful not to stop immediately when they jam.

To fix it, you are going to have to do some trial and error. Grab the rotating part of the bobbin chase and hold it firmly. Rotate the wheel forward until you hear it click once. Then rotate the wheel backward again and see if it grabs the top thread. If it doesn't, repeat holding the bobbin chase and turning the wheel forward until it does.

Once you have the gears basically aligned, you will need to reassemble everything. Put the face plate back on and put at least one of the screws in all the way. The face plate holds the bobbin chase in correctly and if you don't fasten it it will not work correctly.

Now try sewing. If it starts to jam, stop immediately, cut the threads and look at the back. If it's a loopy mess, you are going to have to dissamble as before and again grasp the bobbin chase and turn the wheel forward one more click, then reassemble and try again. Eventually, you will find exactly the right alignment and the machine will sew perfectly.

I just had to make this fix on my own machine...I didn't want to take it in for repair because the bench fee alone would cost as much as the machine did!

There are some great video's on YouTube for help with threading the machine...look for StampTV and you should find them. Good luck!

I have a janome DC4030 the top thread keeps breaking on thicker materials,


Make sure the correct length of needle is used and installed correctly. Sometimes it moves slightly out of the holder without falling out but just enough to affect the needle eye position which can cause this kind of problem. For thicker materials use either ball point or denim needles. As last resort the top thread tension might be too tight. Adjust the top thread tension.

Janome 6500 jamming - cleaned out bobbin case - no help


Have you removed the bobbin holder and then put it back in lining up the little red markings on the right hand side? If the case has moved slightly then it will keep jamming and the bobbin thread won't clear to form a stitch. The case is held in place by a magnet and a stopper but it will dislodge if you have a bad thread jam, then it keeps happening even if you have removed all the thread because its not in position.

Check this solution for image how to remove and replace the bobbin case. http://www.fixya.com/support/t9289728-bobbin_seems

When you take out the bobbin case, carefully inspect it for any damage and burrs in the black plastic, if there are any then file them carefully out with a nail file or fine sandpaper, a burr will keep catching thread too. Or you may actually need to replace the bobbin holder if it has been pierced by the needle badly, they are about $35 or so.

You may also want to get it serviced. On my 6500 during its 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 is holding the bobbin holder in place better. Haven't had a major jam up since this was fitted so you may want to get this fitted on yours too.

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.

The bobbin seems to be stuck and will not move...all it's doing is 'eating' the thread...what do i do? Thanks


Can you get the bobbin out of the bobbin holder? unplug the machine, then remove the needle plate, needle and pressure foot. Now can you get the bobbin out? It is possible that the bobbin holder has moved in the rotary hook, they can jump sometimes as held in by a magnet.

Check out your manual for instructions to remove the bobbin holder, it should show you how to take it out, and then clean under it, there is possibly thread caught in this area causing the malfunction.

You may find turning the fly wheel a little to turn the hook will help to free up the holder and get it out.

Here is image from my Janome 6500 manual, it should be similar for your MC.

So clean out the underneat of the bobbin holder, then reinsert it, and reassemble, thread and test. If this doens't sort the problem, then time to drive it to the Janome shop.

Check the bobbin tension and that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder.

Singer/merritt 2430 bobbin fill


If you lift up the thread holder, the bobbin holder is inside. Loosen the hand guide to stop the needle from going up and down. Pull the thread around the top thread guide and back into the bobbin holder. Thread the bobbin and move the bobbin over so the guage is "inside" the bobbin. As for the manual, the Singer Merritt 2404 is applicable to the 2430 if that helps.
