You might need to use a screwdriver and a pair of pliers (and 3 hands) to loosen the needle bar set screw. Put the screwdriver onto the needlebar and then use the pliers to grab the screwdriver handle to help leverage a turn the stuck screw. Try some WD-40 on the problem screw and let it sit a min or two...and give it another go.
Ask a neighbor or anyone with more hand strength.

SOURCE: Janome Needle plate and needles hitting something underneath

The broken pins are called chaining pins and are tricky for the home user to replace without risking damage to the needle plate as they are difficult to remove and the tiny burr used to hold them firm can easily open up and no longer grip the pin.
There are only a couple of things under the needleplate that are likely to collide with the needles. 1. Lower looper - with the needles 2. Both Loopers colliding with each other - not with the needles 3. Needle guards attached to lower looper - with the needles 4. Fixed Needle guard - with the needles
If you remove the needleplate and VERY gently turn the handwheel you should be able to see and feel where the collision is occuring and have a better idea of the issue.
I would strongly advise that you do not try to operate the machine until you are sure that the colliding components are adjusted. Broken loopers are approx $65 AUD and guards, tho' only about $20 AUD require some finesse in adjustment. Chain Pins approx $6 AUD
My recommendation is to speak with your local Janome dealer for advice and an approximate price to repair, replace or adjust as the case may be.
Your country's Janome website is certain to have a Dealer Locator page to list the nearest to you.
This is one occasion where it is sensible to call on the people who do these things routinely rather than try to DIY and make a more expensive hash of it.

SOURCE: I can hear a clicking when serging

Sounds like your looper timing is off. you will have to have your local shop re-time it. Find a shop that gives free estimates first.

Hope that helps,

SOURCE: newly bought Magnolia 7330 and the needle thread

This sounds silly, but I have the same machine and it kept happening to me too. Here's what I was doing wrong: When I thread it between 6 (thread take-up lever) and 7 (lower thread guide), the thread was being left exposed on the face of the machine instead of falling into that little **** of a crevice. One I figured out to stick it in the **** of the crevice, all was well. Try that -- and good luck!

SOURCE: I have a Janome Magnolia 7330. The bobbin thread

The easiest solution would be to change your needle. They do wear out, get bent, etc, and that makes it difficult for them to pick up the bobbin thread. If you did just change the needle, there was a hint here on FixYa about being sure to face the needle correctly. If you feel the needle, there will be a flat side and a curved side. Check your owner's manual to see which side should face which direction.

My sewing machine is a Janome Magnolia 7330. The hand wheel will not manually turn backwards to raise or lower the needle. When sewing, the bobbin stitches are loose and looped.


I would find a local sewing machine sales and repair shop near you. You will need to have them look into this, it may be a timing issue or a broken or damaged part.

My machine stitches evenly, then squiggly top & bottom, then evenly, then squiggly. What's up?


It can be adjusted by the dealer repair shop. You should have a 1 year warranty to cover the adjustment.

My janome magnolia was working just fine and then all of the sudden the bobbin thread keeps knotting up. i've gone over all troubleshooting, cleaned out the lint, replaced the bobbin - all to no avail......


This happened to me on several occasions and finally one service tech told me not to use the needle down auto button. Instead when threading the bobbin just move the wheel toward you slowly until the thread catches.

I have a Janome Magnolia 7330. How do you open it up to clean and oil it?


If it is computerized, they are generally sealed so they cannot be opened by the user. There are computerized components that could easily be damaged. The manual should have instructions how to maintain your machine. AVOID using compressed air as it tends to push lint and dirt further into the machine where only a technician can clean.
