SOURCE: stops sewing

Sounds like the motor is stressing and a cut-off is operating to protect from overheating........ensure the bobbin area under the needle plate is clean and clear of lint, and that there is no thread jammed around in this area, also at the take-up arm and the cams at the far left of the upper shaftnear the needlearm.........if there is thread wrapped around anything, unwind it VERY CAREFULLY .....DO NOT pull and break it, be patient and move the handwheel gently in reverse while gripping the trapped thread, working it free slowly.

Of course it may be that the motor is old and needing a replacement, but as this machine is quite elderly and may have other complicating issues, you would be best to have someone take a look at it for the best decision of fix or replace, if it comes to that point.

SOURCE: MC 11000 janome stops reading presser foot "p"

This is a relatively easy adjustment as I just did one last week but I'm not sure I can explain it. Anyway, open up the lamp cover and look at the top of the presser bar. There is a sensor that is easily adjusted. It has a small phillips screw that you need to loosen. Then move the black 'L' shaped piece either up or down a little (I can't remember which way) and re-tighten the screw, you may need to experiment. The 'L' shaped piece is a flag that goes between two sensors when the foot is raised and can be rotated left and right about 10 degrees. I hope that helps.

SOURCE: The top spool of thread jams tight when I pull the

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?

SOURCE: I have been given an old Janome sewing machine.

If, you go to www.sewingpartsonline.com , they sell cords etc for Janome, just know your model number and you probably can buy a manual too. They usually run about $35.00. Another suggestion, would be to take it to Sears sewing machine section and see if they have a Janome there, and will they let you try their cord. If, they will, you know that it is the problem and more than likely worth putting the money into it because you cannot buy a decent machine for that.

If you use the darning plate, do you need to have the darning /embroidering pressor foot.


You really do need a foot (just a smidgen shorter than a regular presser foot) that does not contact the feed dogs in order to darn, couch, or free motion stitch. The whole idea is that with this method the feed dogs will not move the fabric, but you also need the foot that allows extra space for you to freely move the fabric manually.

Needle hitting pressor foot


Presser foot not correctly mounted, or needle bent, or needle bar loose or bent are the most likely.

I have a 9960 singer machine and am trying to use the buttonhole presser foot for the first time and I can not get it to sew T


the buttonhole foot snaps on to the presser bar, there's a little lever at the back of the presser bar that releases the foot, then put the buttonhole foot down on the needle plate & use the presser foot lifter (number 11) to lower the presser bar down onto the buttonhole foot & you'll hear a click sound when it snaps on & make sure to use the buttonhole lever(number 31) because the machine won't sew a buttonhole unless that lever is pulled down.

Singer 5050 sewing machine threads gathering under fabric and becoming knotted. how do i fix this


Try a new needle and rethreading. Check your threading by putting the presser foot up , then pull thead, should move smoothly, now put presser foot down, now pull, it should barely move. This usually seats the thread in the tension discs.

The presser foot came off Brothers sewing machine


position the foot under the shaft making sure the horizontal pin on the foot is in line with the horizontal groove on the end of presser foot fitting on the shaft. Lower the pressor foot arm and it should snap right on. If not, press it up manually. the directions should be in your manual. If you don't have your manual, you can get it online at www.brother-usa.com

Presser foot down, but still get error "E1"


I have a different model with the same problem. It started after I took the cover off to fix something else. After I screwed the cover back on, I kept getting the E1 message even when the foot was already down. I took the cover off again, and I found that there is a metal tab at the top left of the front cover, that is pushed by a metal tab in the back that moves when you put the presser foot up or down. You can see this metal tab moving in the back if you put the foot up and down with the cover off. Just putting the foot down(I think) before putting the cover back on fixed it so one metal tab is on the correct side of the other metal tab.

There is an in- between setting. It's not up, but not down either. Does that make sense? If you put the lever up, then bring it down slowly and kind of push it to the back. Hope this helps!
