Tension settings on an overlock machine vary by the stitch you are trying to accomplish. You can usually fine the correct settings in your manual. A good trick to setting tension is to start with 4 different thread colors so that you can see what thread requires adjustment.

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.

How do I get my Janome RE 73 over locker to make stitches. It was working fine and although it's still threaded and power going through it just stopped making stitches


Is something jammed? Does it move at all? Pull out the threads and check all tensions for a blockage. Does it move at all when not threaded?

Hi ,



Make sure your tension is not to tight and that there is now fluff or cotton stuck in between your tension plates. I sometimes use a string of the stitch to pull in between the tension plates. I always set the needles tension first and then i balance the tension of the upper and lower looper.

Make sure the cotton are not looped around a guide. Black cotton and some cottons can build up their own tension. Try different cotton. I\'ve had many a headache with this problem.

Check that the needles are not blunt or bent. I always use schmetz needles. If your needle plate has any damage where the cotton can get hooked. Use a small file or sand paper to remove it. The stitch tongue must be very smooth and the stitch must slide of smoothly. Check that your lower looper point does not have a sharp hook on it. You can use a very fine water sand paper to remove it.

If your needles are touching the looper, i could indicate that your lower looper is out of position. *.*(Always check this with new needles)

Janome ENX24.needle tension will not adjust.


Set the tension to zero and floss it with a piece of fabric or twill tape.

Re-set the tension to 4, or where you would normally set it for this machne.

Thread the machine with the presser foot up, this opens the tension contol to allow the thread to enter.

If you are still having a problem, the machine needs to go in for service.

How do you set the tension on a janome 6260 sewing machine?


Refer to the manual.

You turn the tension knob - the higher the number the tighter the stitch.

First, thread the machine with the presser foot up. This opens the tension control for the thread to properly enter.

Then, when you lower the presser foot, the tension control closes to the setting you have selected.
