How do I adjust tension on a Janome Harmony 9102D


Sounds like you want to do a rolled hem for a handkerchief edge, I do the following to create a rolled hem on my over locker. Take out left needle and cut and remove that thread. Open front cover and slide back lever for the stitch finger in the needle plate, this finger stops the fabric rolling under thread tension normally so you need to pull it back out of engagement. Your Janome may have a similar means to select the rolled hem or you may need to remove the stitch finger with a screwdriver, it varies between models.

Thread upper looper with wooly nylon and right needle and lower looper in matching colour thread. (You can go wooly on the bottom looper but it hardly shows so I never bother.) Disengage upper blade and move the fixed lower blade to the right to trim less, then lower upper blade back into position. Now tension, needle leave alone (5)' upper looper very loose (2-3) and lower looper tighten up to 6-7 and test stitch. You want the upper looper thread to go right underneath and the lower looper thread to disappear against the needle stitch. And the fabric to roll inside the stitching. Finesse tensions on the loopers until this is right, you may need to change blade position too, depends on weight of the fabric and how it rolls. Once this is right turn stitch length down to close up stitching, 0.8 or even 0.5 if you want full coverage. Thats it. You can use differential feed if you want a fluted rolled edge, nice on knits.

Janome mylock 204d needle keeps breaking when sewing a rolled hem on sequined fabric


The needle thread breaks
1. the needle thread is not threaded properly
2. The needle thread tension is to tight
3. The needle is bent or blunt
4. The needle is incorrectly inserted
5. The needle thread & the bobbin thread are not set under the presser foot when starting to sew
6. the threads were not drawn to the rear after sewing
7. The thread is either to heavy or to fine for the needle

I am not getting an even rolled hem on a heavier fabric. I am only using 3 cones of Maxi Lock.


You can not do a rolled hem on heavier material. It is only for thin cloth. You have to do a 3 thread narrow edge on heavier cloth.

Can you please tell me how to set up my Janome 304D overlocker to roll hem?


try this solution
http://www.fixya.com/support/t9307094-cannot_get_tension_right_also_trying

not exactly your serger model but technique will be very similar for rolled hem.

You need to set up a three thread overlock with the right hand needle, (take left needle out), and change the thread finger in the throat. Sometimes a switch to do this and sometimes it is a little piece on the foot that you change with a screwdriver.

Also, this solution http://www.fixya.com/support/t9280656-thread_janome_204d_serger is basic threading on 204D, it should be very similar to your model.

I have looked for a free download instruction manual for your machine without success. But you should be able to buy one from Janome or another of the online sewing sites like www.sewusa.com or www.sewingpartsonline.com.

]ve a manual you can somtimes find them on the Janome websit
Here is a link to threading up for 334D

Need settings for Simplicity easyLock SL370 rolled hem. Machine belongs to a friend who recently moved and the instruction manual has gone missing. Thank you!


narrow 3thread seam, so remove left needle. loosen top looper tension to 3 or 2, tighten bottom looper tension to 7 or 8. thread top looper with woolly overlock thread and reduce stitch length. there is also a thread finger u need to flick back on throat or needle plate usually to make rolled hem. also move blade to right to trim less fabric as you want the fabtic to roll under inside the seam.

Janome 5700 I can't remember how to do a roll hem the setting etc. and what foot to use and can't find my book


Use foot D.
Cut 1/8" of the corner of the fabric at a 45 degree angle.
Fold the fabric over 2mm,
Feed the edge into the funnel of the foot and carefully feed the fabric into the foot as it sews.
Practice a few times with some long scraps to get the hang of how much to fold in and you will rapidly improve.
