Servicing and cleaning my sewing machine

Hello Hazel
The Memory Craft 9000 is a computerized sewing machine. In removing the casing precautions must be taken to prevent damage to the electronic boards which are costly to replace. As a result it is recommended by the manufacturer (Janome) that this work be performed only by qualified technicians with the required equipment to prevent any damage.
What is the reason for requiring the casing to be removed?

My sewing machine is jammed the needle will not go up or down nor does the wheel

Stop! Get your camera/cell phone or whatever. Take pictures at each of these steps (to refer to later)

Remove the needle and presser foot (use scissors to cut threads if necessary)

Remove the plates under the presser foot that cover the bobbin and needle through area. Clean any thread/lint, etc from under there.

Get magnifying glass and inspect for additional bits of thread or needle ends that have broken off.

If necessary remove the shuttle race and inspect for burrs, cracks, etc.

replace everything and try moving the handwheel. If it works, it's good to go. If it doesn't take it in.

Now... when you begin sewing any seam. ALWAYS grasp both threads as you begin sewing. This will keep jams from happening and it is a good sewing habit.

My thread keeps breaking when I sew

Tension is maladjusted. There is a tensioner on the front of your machine. If it is too tight (turned clockwise) the thread will break. Also could be the bobbin has tangled. Remove it and check for tangles.

When I'm sewing a seam the needle always hits the straight pins. I've checked the needle, removed it and put it back in. When it hits the pins it almost always breaks the needle.

When you are sewing you are supposed to take out the pins as you go to avoid the needle hitting the pins.Sew a little and remove a pin,sew a little more and remove another pin.That's how you do it.If you hit a pin change the needle it will most likly be bent or blount after hitting a pin.

Where do you oil this machine -- it's not in the owner's manual.

Welcome to FixYa! on the list below is the steps to oil your sewing machine.

  1. Remove the screw from the top of the Janome face plate with a small flathead screwdriver. The face plate is on the top of the sewing machine directly above the needle.

  2. Pull the face plate up and away from the sewing machine gently.

  3. Face the sewing machine as if you were about to start sewing.

  4. Locate a small cylinder attached to the side of the sewing machine facing you that had been covered by the face plate. Apply one or two drops of oil to the top of this cylinder.

  5. Locate a small square that is directly above the needle of the machine, also previous hidden by the face plate. Apply one or two drops of oil directly above and below this square.

  6. Replace the face plate and tighten the screw.

  7. Open the hook cover of the sewing machine as if you were changing the bobbin. This area is located directly under the needle.

  8. Remove the bobbin case by grasping the lever on the case and gently pulling the case out from the machine.

  9. Remove the hook ring and the hook. These two parts are behind the bobbin case and should come out easily.

  10. Apply one drop of oil to the center of the hole the bobbin was removed from.

  11. Replace all of the parts you removed from the sewing machine.

Good luck

How to oil a serger?

  1. Unplug your sewing machine.
  2. Step 2 Unthread your sewing machine and remove the bobbin.
    Remove the throat plate. You may need to remove the presser foot and needle to do this, and the throat plate may be held in place with a couple of screws. Every model is different.
  3. Step 3 Use the small cleaning brush that came with your sewing machine, or if it's missing use another similar brush. Brush any fuzz and lint out and away from the machine. Try not to let it fall back into the sewing machine. With the throat plate out you should be able to reach most areas of the machine where lint gets packed. Sometimes if you haven't cleaned this out for a while it gets packed down until it looks like felt. (There is no felt near the working parts of your machine. It's lint build-up. Remove it.)
  4. Step 4 After you have removed all the fuzz you can see, take an aerosol can of air with a tiny tube extender. Insert the tube extender from the some point at the back of the machine and shoot some air so that any fuzz left will blow out towards you. Don't shoot the air into the machine, or you may blow fuzz farther into the machine. Spray in short bursts.
  5. Step 5 Find the oiling diagram in your sewing machine users manual. If you do not have the manual, most older machines require a drop of oil on the hook (the part that moves around the bobbin) perhaps behind the hook, and the needle shaft. One drop of oil is all you need at each point, and then turn the flywheel to move the sewing machine parts and distribute the oil.
  6. Step 6 Many newer sewing machines have sealed electronics, and the only place you need to oil is the hook. Refer to your manual or contact a dealer for specific instructions for electronic models.
  7. Step 7 Replace the needle and presser foot. Replace the bobbin, and thread the machine. Using the scrap of cotton fabric, sew back and forth on the scrap until you are sure there is no excess oil anywhere that could stain a sewing project. Sew on the scrap until all stitches are clean.
  8. Step 8 You should clean and oil your sewing machine after about eight (8) hours of sewing time. If you are sewing with fleece, flannel, or doing machine quilting, you should clean and oil more often since there will be a faster lint build-up.
