Question about Janome D'cor Excel Pro 5124 Mechanical Sewing Machine
Posted by Anonymous on
This specific model, and most of the Singer Touch and Sew series of machines has several plastic gears that drive either or both the hook, and the feed dogs. Due to age and general wear, these gears eventually break. It is almost 100% likely that one of your gears is broken. It is recommended that you replace all of the plastic gears in your machine at the same time. If you just replace the one broken gear, you are merely shifting the weakest point in the system to another gear, which will also break shortly. If you replace all the gears at once, they will be of equal age and strength. It is best to get this done at a reputable sewing machine repair shop, as this repair involves a complete re-timing of the machine, and can be quite difficult for the novice.

Possibly your bobbin is in the machine backwards or upside down. The thread needs to come off the bobbin in a certain way (or direction) specific to each machine. If it will fit, try flipping the bobbin over or around.
Another thing might be the thread tension, make sure you have threaded the feed from the spool of thread properly. Often it will do this on its own.
If the bobbin is in correctly and through the **** in the side of the bobbin casing, make sure the top is threaded correctly. The part the goes up and down, I don't know the name, but it is right above the needle and if the thread is not through this part you will get a mess on the underside.
